I guess I could add in the attack on gun owners with no real charges, the attack on people not wanting to vaccinate, the people who want to grow their own food, etc. All I’m saying here is that more often than not it seems that our government (and this isn’t just Obama!) is against Conservative and Constitutional values. This doesn’t seem like a country where you can practices as you see fit with your own life anymore. Instead it is a country where you can only believe what is politically correct, speak truth that isn’t too harsh, and you must feel guilty of who you are. For if you speak or do what you want in life, you’re probably a racist, a bigot, you hate children, you hate Obama because he’s black, you love money more than old people, you’re white and don’t understand other races, you hate Mexicans because you don’t want them to come here illegally, and more.
I’ll say it and I know this turns people off but it really reminds me of how Germany was in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Atrocious things happened in Germany during those times things that most people would never agree to. But they kept quiet and hoped that things would turn around. They looked to the government with the master promise and master plan to make their country and world great again. They gave up their liberties. They gave up their firearms. They largely gave up their religions and political beliefs. The gave up their neighbors, friends, and family… for safety and a promise of prosperity. But most of all, they gave up their dignity.
When will Americans stand up and say “no more” attacking my neighbor simply because they are different? When will we realize that America is a melting pot of all different ideas, political beliefs, and religions and that we will never be an all cohesive group? That no matter what laws are passed we all have a right to live life as we see fit? Until we speak out, regardless of what politician is saying what… and say that these things are wrong… I fear we are doomed. We must stand up for our neighbor even if we disagree with them. They have a right to be who they are without our interference and vice-versa.
When will we reach this realization?
