A call for a return to sanity

Is perpetual peace just a witless dream? Was man bred for conflict? After years of experience and observation, I have convinced myself that if three men were shut in a room with a television set, an argument, possibly a fight, would commence within hours.

Great visionaries through much sacrifice, effort, and conflict came together and founded America. They wrote a Declaration, then a Constitution, which, if both were followed with written intent, America would still be the most respected, richest, and strongest nation on Earth. Did conflict lead to the creation of these great writings?

Politicians without honesty, morals, and a patriotic love for this once great nation have all but destroyed our heritage and culture, not for unity and peace but to enrich, seek power, serve party and themselves. As a whole, a sorry lot runs our government. Very few members of Congress are fit to breathe our air, much less enjoy the extravagant pay and benefits they lie and cheat to maintain. So few of that "honorable" group have stood up for the founding principles, they will not denounce radical Islam, and our president refuses to say "terrorist,” as he stands for nothing except Saul Alinski's teachings.

America drifts with no leadership or direction, but with flawed reaction to local and world events. Our nation is still very strong, the weakness is in our leaders.

We lower our standards, violate our laws, destroy our culture in an effort to appease a small minority and ensure political correctness. Here we need conflict.

Veterans hospitals are a forerunner to Obamacare. We have too much government yet most of the ones who created this mess were re-elected. Only a miracle can return sanity and common sense to Washington, as the voters have proven once more that they elect the same people expecting different results. This useless conflict continues.
