Every day in every way I am getting more and more disappointed in where my country is headed. I truly believe I grew up in the best of times. The really sad thing is that I don't think there's a damn thing I can do about it except write to my congressmen (I'll get a form letter in return that doesn't even come close to addressing why I wrote) and making sure I vote for the person I feel least harmful. I read a blog this morning that had an article about the ACLU sticking its nose into something again. Seems that now you don't have to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance! Truly the ACLU is getting too powerful and the Supreme Court is getting too liberal. Where are our values headed? The dump, it would appear. To me not standing for the Pledge or putting your hand over your heart is a sign of total disrespect and those who don't wish to say the Pledge can go live somewhere else!
I don't know how much longer I'll be on this planet but I hope to never see us lose the few freedoms we have left. You'd best watch out, people, 'cause Big Brother is here and gaining strength.
Y'all have a thoughtful day and remember: He who choses security over freedom has neither.
