Will Americans ever have the guts to stand up and take responsibility for ourselves, again? Will we ever be as hard-working as our parents and forefathers? Will we ever stop following popular opinion instead of fact? Will we ever stop expecting people to bail us out, in the form of the government?

If the answer to any of those questions is 'no', we won't have our country for much longer. I might not live long enough to see it happen (I PRAY!), but one day, unless we start to stand up for ourselves, our liberties will be stripped completely away. Why do so many insist on travelling with the herd, even when the cliff ahead is in plain sight? Do they think it's a mirage?

This country has been, and is STILL, the bastion for individual rights. We can't sacrifice that for a little sense of security. It's a false sense of security, anyway. Revocation of liberty might result in a short-term lull, but when the violence returns, it will be 7-fold, and our ability to protect ourselves will be undermined.

Will America ever be ready for another good President? Will we continue to use the Presidential election as a nation-wide popularity contest that does us no real good? Will we always let TV and radio tell us what to think? Will we always follow blindly the 2-party system of bad vs. worse? When will we realize we can choose GOOD?
