As we say “thank you” to every brave service person who fought to defend all of our freedoms, we also wonder about where America is heading. I wonder what the families who gave the ultimate sacrifice think about watching America spiral downward into socialism. Their precious loved ones pledged their life to fight, protect, and defend America from all enemy’s foreign and domestic, yet, some who are now in seats of authority are pushing America farther and farther into the pits of socialism. Those brave individuals took an oath to defend our Constitution, yet their families are forced to watch as those in positions of power who took that same oath continue to shred the rights of American citizens. And what of those families who’s brave soldiers paid the ultimate price with their lives to defend America and Her freedoms? What must they be thinking and feeling? Their sons, daughters, husbands, wives, sisters, or brothers paid the ultimate price to ensure America remains free. They know that freedom is never free. It is always paid by the blood, sweat, and tears of brave soldiers and their families. God help America as She spirals into a pit of despair. God help us all! Now, it is up to all of us. Each one of us must continue the fight for freedom. Now, it is not only left up to our courageous soldiers and their families. It is now our fight. Once again, when I speak of fighting, I never mean acts of violence. Violence is never the answer and only begets more violence. Our fight now is our with our voice. We must speak up and tell those in places of power “no.” We do not condone them changing our laws that will lessen our God-given rights. We must say to them that we will not allow America to become a place of socialism. Socialism never works and only leads to the increased suffering of the very poor. Socialism always increases the power of the elites and leaves those with no control at their mercy. We must tell these elites that we do not condone their policies. We must say to them that we do not condone using the brave men and women of our Armed Services to protect them as their personal security team. America, raise your voice and say “no.” Today on Memorial Day, we must honor our courageous soldiers with our thanks and our raised voices. We must let them know that their sacrifices are not in vain. America’s silent majority must raise your voices! Call, write, or email your governors, senators, representatives, and the White House and tell them “no.” Let them know that they cannot turn our country into a place of despair and suffering. The silent majority must speak up now at the ballot boxes. We must continue to vote at every opportunity that presents itself. Continue to promote with your vote those who love America, God, and our freedoms. If you are one of those people, consider running for your local school boards, city council, mayor, state legislative, or government positions. That is how we use our voice. We have to follow thru and vote those individuals out of office who do not seek to protect our Constitution. We must demand election laws that protect the integrity of our votes. We do this by writing, calling, or emailing our state and government officials and require that laws are written and passed that will protect the will and the voice of the citizens of America. That is how we continue to say “thank you” to every courageous soldier by upholding what they so bravely fought for. The American dream is still alive and well, and we must fight for it! Happy Memorial Day.
