Words can’t possibly express my happiness that a majority of Americans believe our government is too big. Watching the Liberal-Democrats race to destroy our Republic form of government the past six years has been the saddest part of my 84 years. Any free thinking American who lives long enough will understand that freedoms are the greatest rights possible.
In my travels that took me to 32 countries the saddest event to watch was people who had never been free and never would be. The event that had the biggest impact on me was a visit to Hong Kong in 1990. We had the same driver for the four day visit who was distressed that the impending transfer of his country from British rule to China would remove his freedoms. This experience had a lasting impact on my wife and me and cemented my conservative beliefs.
Now can the Republicans wake up and quickly agree on one individual who they can all support as a leader. Watching the Republicans implode in 2012 by attacking each other during the senseless debates was like watching a rerun of a Three Stogie’s comedy. While they amused the people by slaughtering each other the Democrats closed ranks, and let them squander a golden opportunity to win the Presidency.
I watched several of the interviews last night and sure enough the battle for power we will see unfold is headed for a repeat performance. My Senator, Ted Cruz, when asked if he would support McConnell for Senate leader was quite evasive and non-committed. It appears we have another field of Republicans lining up to have a donkey BBQ and end up shooting the elephant in the foot again.
If they ever wake up and decide to lead America back on the freedom path, they can improve our lives like we saw Reagan do. Uniting themselves before they even try to re-unite Americans seems to be a common sense plan. In my opinion the massive egos of the younger Republicans will again create the same conflict we watched in 2012. They are not capable of compromise and our Congress is still as divided as it has been in my lifetime.
The real reason our country is so divided was not caused by politicians that most people would blame it on. What has fostered the hatred and the division of the people is our universities and colleges. The majority of the states are now being managed by Republican Governors and Legislatures. If these people are real leaders they will clean out the radical Progressive professors who have created our civil unrest. They created the ACLU and individual despots that are hell-bent on destroying all freedoms.
It amazes me that the media just ignores the core reason we hate each other and just watch the tenured crackpots poison the minds of our youth. If anyone over 40 were to monitor an actual classroom in most of these institutions they would throw up. I finished my Masters at 47 and had a chance to see this first hand.
I am proud to say I am a conservative American who appreciates the education and life I have enjoyed as a free man. It hurts me deeply that some of my own grandchildren were brainwashed by these tenured professors at some of Texas finest universities. Now they are twisting and impacting the minds of my great grandchildren to further divide our country.
What do you think will happen?
