HOW SOON THEY FORGET!
Change as we have known it, is not change for change’s sake, but change to preserve America’s ideals; life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. Our mission is timeless, each generation of Americans must define what it means to be an American.
Today, a generation subjected to ongoing War’s assumes a new responsibility in a world warmed by freedom’s torch yet threatened still by long held hatreds and plagues. Raised in an economy which remains the world’s strongest, but is being weakened by business failures, stagnant wages, and deep divisions among our people.
Profound and powerful forces are shaking and remaking our world, and the urgent question of our time is whether we will make change our friend and not our enemy.
When most people are working harder for less; when others cannot work at all; when the cost of health projects to devastate families and bankrupt many of our businesses; when millions of children can’t imagine the debt and the life we are bestowing upon them too lead, certainly we have not made change our friend.
We know we have to face hard truths and take strong steps, instead we have drifted and in so doing our drifting has eroded our resources, devastated our economy, and shaken our confidence. We must look forward and bring to task the vision and will of those who came before us.
From our revolution, the Civil War, to the Great Depression to the civil rights movement, we have as a nation come together to preserve the foundations and principles which defines who we as Americans are.
It is time to break the bad habit of expecting something for nothing, from our government or from each other. Let us all take more responsibility for ourselves and our families and country.
My interpretations from a former democratic president in his Inaugural Address.
(Sounds more like a candidate I could support than the liberal leftwing socialist he is supporting.)
God Bless America
