Uncle Sam on life supportDuring this time when we celebrate Independence Day, I am weary of our non-declared wars. I believe independence is a blood-shared right we have in this country that so many Americans died for our liberty and freedoms that many of us patriots hold dearly.
Freedom, though, is not only bought from blood being shed but also from deeds and words of its citizens and, unfortunately, our elected officials. We are supposed to be a nation of laws, but the last three years under President Obama we contributed very little to our liberty or freedoms.
We are now a nation of opinions, political correctness and self-serving liberals who only believe in losses. How can our nation make money on losses? We are losing our borders, our national laws, loss of our economic future, loss of our respect by international allies, loss of our personal financial stability, plus we now lost our national identity.
In my opinion, we lost our national cohesiveness as citizens and we lost the enthusiasms of Christian devotion as a nation. We lost the right to triumph in high achievement and personal wealth and replaced it with a guilt to make money and to succeed.
