Charlie Daniels's Latest ~ America The Passive

America The Passive

The people who first came to America were not content to stay on the eastern half of America, bountiful as it was, they had to see what was on the other side of the big river and no one was going to tell them any different.

America was not willing to be taxed by England without any representation by Ping George and the Parliament, so they set about breaking the ties that bound.

American workers got tired of being treated like company property and they formed trade unions to set things right.

Martin Luther King could never have accepted the black race not receiving the rights guaranteed them under the Constitution and gave his life to make a better life for the millions who would reap the benefits of his sacrifice.

American history is full of examples of brave men and women who stood up and said, "This ain't right and I'm going to do something about it". America had guts and will and the energy and sense of fair play to change things.

What's happened? Is America becoming a herd of sheep, driven by self serving politicians with government hand outs and big businesses who move factories and outsource work to foreign countries and still expect us to buy their products? Businesses who want to dilute the labor market to keep wages down by importing and legalizing millions of unqualified workers, while the American tax payer bears the brunt of their greed?

We are bombarded by dire warnings of global warming by jaded politicos and spoiled Hollywood stars who insist that we give up our comforts while they make not the slightest change in their bloated lifestyles.

The biggest newspaper in the country prints downright lies and Senators and Congressmen endanger the lives of brave young men and women in harm's way for nothing more than political gain.

The price of health care has gone through the roof and we sit here wringing our hands and wondering when it¹s going to get beyond the financial reach of many Americans.

Our politicians tell us that Social Security is slowly going broke and they are trying to add twenty million people to its roles.

Where is the outrage, where is the common sense? It's certainly not in Washington D.C. and never will be.

The greatness of this nation is in its people, their will, their determination and their willingness to act.

Other than Almighty God, the strongest force in this nation is public opinion and if America doesn't begin to let that opinion be known in the voting booth and beyond, we are going to lose some of our most precious freedoms and much of the prosperity of this great nation.

What a pity.

Pray for our troops

What do you think?

God Bless America

......Thank you Charlie Daniels! Charlie is right, and I think the Conservatives have had enough and we are now doing what we can to show our disgust. I pray our efforts will be heard, I know the GOP and RNC are feeling the pain of low donations. And that may be the thing that speaks volumes to them of our disgust.

We don't invite illegal aliens into our house. We don't invite unidentified strangers into our house either. So WHY is our beloved nation any different? FRED THOMPSON in 2008!

America has lost her way--she isn't gone yet, but she's lost in the dark.
She can't find the lighthouse on the hill.
We need to elect people who actually do CARE about what happens to her, not those who just want a BIG salary and then forget about us once they're in office.
Time for us to raise up and let our voices be heard in song and oratory--God Bless America Again!
We will NOT go silently into the night!

Pray for things like home schooling and Internet blogging. This is what will enlighten Americans and raise the level of average knowledge. Our public schools and the MSM have done what they can to dumb down America and change our priorities from patriotism and reality to socialism and drivel. It is amazing that so many people are still able to overcome this assault and function reasonably. But too many think that Paris Hilton is important and America owes the world.

Tom--you are so right on the public schools. It's not teaching anymore, it's indoctrination.
Thank God my husband and I have taught our children the difference and have allowed them to learn to speak their minds. My oldest has been given the chance to get college credit for AP Government because her teacher enjoyed her in her class because she thought differently and wasn't easily swayed by the popular beliefs of the day.
I hate having to conform to one way of doing things.

Darth, good point. The people in the house yours and mine etc. don't want them. But our leaders sure seem to. augh!!!

Lynn, beautifully said, thank you so much.

"We will NOT go silently into the night!.....we sure won't.

Tom I agree, lots of prayers for those things. They are very important.
