Time To Put Your Shoes On

Some of you I’ve been talking to, ( I won’t mention any names) think that socialism would be ok. After all we are almost there anyway. It couldn’t be any worse than what it already is. Let me assure you, it can get far worse. Take a good look at Cuba. How about China? How about Russia? I’ve seen Czechoslovakia first hand. People in the 2 k zone had to ask permission to go out and hang their clothes on the line. I saw East Germany after the wall came down. It was cold, grey, drab, and the people were totally subdued. Some think our Constitution is old and needs to be changed. How would you like to live in a country without free speech and the right to protect yourselves? What wants to live that way? Who wants you to live that way? Dictators do, of course. The Constitution is a set of enduring principles codified into law. Our founders wrote them to establish a government, but keep it limited and off our backs. Find me a better one? Samuel Adams wrote, ““If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!”
