Longing for the old days

Our government has for decades tried to legislate morals. Failing that, they are now venturing into trying to control our diets. So many obese, diabetic bodies constitute much of the populace.

Before the existence of welfare, food stamps, and cradle to grave government care, most able bodied among us worked, were self sufficient, independent, free thinking, active, and thin healthy people. I know because I was there. Tho' we now live longer, the life we now live under government control isn't a better more fulfilling life. Only my opinion, so?

The ever growing, oppressive, costly, controlling government which created the mess in which we now exist , if honest and caring, would have to admit that free people, not government, is what made America great. The people can return this nation to the prominent standing we once were blessed to have. Strong, wealthy, respected, and free should forever be the goal. Instead, politicians, full of greed and egotistic hunger for power, have reduced us to a breath away from third world status.

America, founded on Christian principles, allowing our culture and way of life to be drastically altered by those self centered, politically correct, so called leaders in Washington and some locally has no resemblance to the country I grew up in. Call it old fashioned, not keeping up with progress, whatever. I long for the days of unlocked doors, respect for others, common sense, strong borders, and a president who honors his oath and obeys and enforces all legally passed laws.
