Bare Essentials

It's your choice: Be one of the independent-majority or dependent-minority.

What has happened to change us from a citizenry capable of walking a thousand miles to settle on land where we could build our own home, to a people who believe it is their right to be taken care of?

Today, nearly half of America expects free health care, free college education, and free money to live on. And the rest of us just shake our heads in disbelief.

It is time for those of us who believe in personal independence to make our voices heard. If our candidates for local, state and national office do not pledge to restrain spending to basic community infrastructure items, i.e. defense, education, law enforcement, fire & rescue, we should replace them with people who will.

We can and must change the frivolous use of our confiscated money (taxes) or the America that so many have sacrificed to build will crumble.

One only has to look at Greece to see what happens when the independent-majority abdicates their responsibility to the dependent-minority.

Greece is bankrupt and attempts to roll back those freebies results in rioting in the streets. Is that the America we want for our children?

Or do we want our children to grow up like Americans of old who believed that they could accomplish anything they had the will to commit too?

I want the later and every time I vote I will be remembering that fact.
