Believe it or not this article was actual inspired by the Toby Keith video linked above. I will be posting this on of my blogs & syndication.
With 9/12 just around the corner & the debate on health care heating up, it's hard not to be excited about the conservative movement. If you want to read something positive, just stop now. I'm not about to claim that America is on the right track, or that it's even getting better. I do not see a light at the end of the tunnel. I do not understand how anyone can. Over the summer I did very little in politics, mostly because I was suffering from what some might call depression. Most of my writings from that time period were too negative to post, but I have decided to sum them up here.
America has become a cesspool for corruption & greed. Our politicians are liars & most citizens accept that fact. Why is this? Are you & I, the patriotic, thinking Americans the cause? Of course not. We look at the world from a sensible point of view & have our priorities straight. The reason we are in this mess is because for the past decade we have been a nation in excess. There's generally nothing wrong with excess but unfortunately excess sometimes causes laziness. Americans got lazy. The generation who are of voting age now grew up caring more about music, movies & television than politics. This has carried over to my generation. I was having a conversation about health care reform with a friend at school this morning & someone turned to me saying "Can you guys stop talking about that, it's not even important." The person then proceeded to start a conversation about Jon & Kate Plus 8. This is this is the world we live in.
The current voting generation has been brainwashed into thinking that E News is more important that Fox News. They have a tendency to look towards celebrities for political information. This is a disgrace. To think that these people have children! Imagine what my generation will grow up to be! Let's get a quick preview shall we?
On Tuesday I was told by a fellow student at my high school that I should have to watch the President's speech to minors because "He's the President & you have to do what he says." That of course was a less informed, less intellectual teenager. Let's take a look at what the "thinking" teens have to say. Liberal teen blogger Markus Batchelor once told me that quote "sometimes the Constitution has to be usurped in order to pass legislation" He is absolutely right. The problem is that legislation which usurps the Constitution is unconstitutional! Some of these people will be voting in less than a year.
I suppose I can't ask where my America has gone because my ideal America hasn't existed in my lifetime. I do ask you this though, where has YOUR American gone? Where are the patriots wiling to take a stand against liberalism & flat out idiocy? Where are the great Americans who value politics more than Jon & Kate Plus 8? Where are the people who believe that the Constitution is the most important & binding document in American history & will do anything to protect it? Will the real Americans please stand up?
