AMERICA IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY
AMERICA IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY
OR AT LEAST IT USED TO BE!
My friend, Ron Jenkins, fellow veteran and patriot sent me this message that I hope to share with as many frustrated Americans as possible. I added “or it used to be” as I deeply feel that our race to Socialism is destroying us. Watching the deliberate actions of our President divide us and plan for another civil conflict is unbelievable. His actions alone have increased the sales of guns and ammunition beyond belief. If we don’t shoot each other who are we arming ourselves to kill? Read this article carefully and decide if you have answers. C Brewer
America IS the greatest country the world has ever known!
But recently, our country has fallen on hard times, its people have forgotten why we were formed, and how we got to the top spot, amongst all nations, in the entire history of the world. Two words: Freedom and Capitalism.
Those who would “fundamentally change” this nation, hate Capitalism and embrace Socialism or one of its forms and that is not a good thing.
In order to achieve “True Equality” there first has to be some over achievers who had the freedom to produce wealth. Their success builds and encourages others to emulate their efforts. The result is that rising tide that raises all boats. The successful have always bent down to lift up the less fortunate, the less energetic, the less motivated, the less intelligent.
There must be “haves” before anything can be doled out to the “have not’s”.
But there are ever problems. Not every Capitalist or entrepreneur is beneficent or altruistic. We are not blessed with a plethora of Gates and Buffets. Some take advantage and flaunt their wealth with showy extravagance; they are bad examples but not reason enough to scrap our way of life that has brought so much to so many.
High taxation and restrictive government regulation have diminished the spirit of those with the drive and energy to risk their wealth and resources to seek financial success and a better life.
It has taken over 200 hundred years but the corruption so rife in the old world has reared its ugly head in all sectors of our society. From the high rollers who lie and cheat to beat their competition, to the welfare recipients who refuse to work, even when able, the corrupt politicians and public servants who take bribes, look the other way or who help or get help and gain through the use of inside information.
Our naiveté has gone, patriotism is on the wane. When only half the population are working and pay taxes that support the other half, there comes a time when many of the former start to wonder why they should continue to work while the other fellow plays.
Federally, we elect 435 Representatives, 100 Senators and 2 Senior Exec’s. There are another nine who are supposed to be the balancing weight for the excesses of the other two groups. And, even though ours is a “Representative Republic” not “Democracy”, we are approaching a time when the super majority will over ride common sense and reason and continue the irresponsible give away of tax money to other nations and to fund disincentives for so much of our population.
Of course, most of the current turmoil and uproar would be drowned out if the economy got going again, if gov’t got out of the way and embraced the petroleum industry, the positive impact it could have on jobs and energy independence and the balance of trade, would be more than significant. OR,
The government could turn to Wal-Mart and ask it to run the country.
Check out the info presented below:
Wal-Mart vs. The Morons
1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart every hour of every day.
2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!
3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.
4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.
5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world’s largest private employer, and most speak English.
6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.
7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.
8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.
9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.
10. Wal-Mart has approximately 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.
11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth’s population is approximately 6.6 Billion.)
12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.
You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should turn over the country and allow Wal-Mart to fix the economy.
This should be read and understood by all Americans… Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!
To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Federal Legislature
It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:
a. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.
b. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
c. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
d. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor” and they only want more.
e. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
f. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
g. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.
AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE THE GOVERNMENT CAN BE TRUSTED TO RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??
Half the country have lost their minds to “Political Correctness”!!!
Someone please tell me what the HELL’s wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!
We’re “broke” and can’t find a sensible and reasonable way help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, and Homeless.
In the last few years, we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, Turkey, Pakistan (previous home of bin Laden); literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!! Now it’s Egypt and other Muslim led nations who hate our guts, our culture and religious tolerance.
Our retired seniors, who, for whatever reason, must try to live on a ‘fixed income’, i.e., Social Security, and receive nothing else, unless they fall into the definition of “below the poverty line”.
We are a country that has homeless, without shelter, children of single mothers, who allow them to bed hungry, (maybe because they are a substance abuser!) elderly going without essential, life sustaining medications, and mentally ill without interventionist treatment, before it’s too late.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* made the selfish choice to provide for its own poor and less fortunate before giving support to other countries.
