In all my years on this Earth I never once believed I’d see the day when America was turned upside down, inside out, backward and full of ignorant sheep.
As a child growing up in the hills of Kentucky and then later the streets of Detroit, brought up by two hard working parents I was bolstered with the principles of Liberty, Freedom, the Forefathers and the Constitution. I read the Bible, I studied the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence and was well versed in American History. A favorite book of my childhood was called “Our American Heritage”, a collection of stories that was given to me by my dad. Dad was a former Marine who fought in Korea, was wounded twice. Mom had a college degree but never went to a job. She stayed home caring for our family of seven. Mom and Dad were Democrats.
When I joined the military I eventually found myself fighting commies in Central America and later I wound up as a ground support troop for the folks who died in “Desert One”. Jimmy Carter was at fault for that fiasco and was never really blamed. I voted for Reagan and never looked back.
Today I’m watching as my country falls apart.
IRS has stopped Conservatives, Tea Party people, and other groups from being able to participate effectively in politics in any form, all at the behest, I am certain of the President.
NSA is spying not on terrorists, but everyone.
DOJ has looked into phone records on journalists.
CIA can tap into the computer in your dishwasher if they wish.
The fine line between Freedom and Tyranny has been crossed.
When both sides of the political aisle come together to say “This is wrong” looking at the fact the NSA is collecting data on all of us, on every American whether you’ve broken a law or not and clear violations of the 4th Amendment have occurred there is little left to do but accept it, or fight it.
I thought as a child that everyone thought like me, believed in the Constitution and America. Now I see, as others do that there are politicians, men and women inside the DC Beltway that absolutely do NOT believe in the same things that many of us were brought up to believe. In fact, their beliefs are diametrically opposed to ours and they lied through their teeth to get in office.
I’m not speaking JUST of Obama and his cabinet of criminals (tax evaders, terrorists) or the Left. I’m talking about both sides. Republicans and Democrats are culpable in the demise of the United States of America, of Freedom, Liberty and Principles. These people have attacked, chipped away and ultimately destroyed the trust We the People had in the United States Government.
I am still working for them. I do my job to protect this country. At my level and in my Agency we aren’t involved in things like collecting intelligence on people – although they probably collect it on people like me internally to use later /shrug but the truth is, I still do my job because I STILL believe in America. I still believe in my oath of office. I still believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence and I still believe that we are the greatest country in the world.
I just don’t trust the politicians to run the Government any more. It’s time to put the Government back into the hands of The People.
