Our government is a runaway snowball

January 23, 2014

Never in the history of our country have we been in such peril as we are today. I would even go so far as to say as even during the Second World War. I will qualify this statement. The threat was external, we knew who the enemy was, we had the resources and, most critically, we had a generation of Americans with the will to win at any cost.

The threat is compounded even more today because our external enemies in many ways are more formidable in numbers and resources than the Nazis and Japanese. But, the real horror story today is, our external enemies are being aided and abetted by an internal enemy - our government and the apathetic mindset of over half our citizens.

Unlike WWII, our resources are exhausted and the will to win has been replaced by corruption, entitlement, being offended, the race card, greed and sloth. And, the sad truth is that we will never now be able to put this evil genie back in the bottle.

Our government has become a giant runaway snowball growing ever larger, and rolling ever faster. No president, no one political party, neither the House nor the Senate, and no amount of legislation can stop it. None of these entities will ever catch up with, let alone get ahead of it.

So it’s time we, the ordinary citizens who love America, act, not talk, not write, not fax, not email, not post or tweet, not demonstrate… act to smash the snowball.
