Land of the Free?

Socialism is not the Answer

1 Dragon

I have received a lot of e-mails over the years about how life was in the 60’s or comparing today to with life a hundred years ago and some are funny. Other times they make me think. While growing up, I never wore a seat belt, some cars I owned didn’t have one. I never wore a helmet while riding a bicycle. I didn’t worry about eating to much cake or candy because we didn’t buy it that much.

Today, our government will tell us what is good for us and continue to tell us until we believe. In the 70’s there were plenty of muscle cars until Jimmy Carter and the gas shortage and then came the K-Cars. Lighter, front-wheel drive and not much to look at after a crash. No really, have you ever leaned on an old car and noticed how strong it was? It was made of steel. If you got into an accident, it wasn’t that big of a deal because there wasn’t that much damage. Today the cars we drive are lighter and made of balsa wood (LOL) and there isn’t much left after an accident. Yet the government says they’re safe.

Michelle Obama wants to be Cabbage Queen and tell us what we can and can’t eat. She will probably have the backing of the FDA and they will probably have the backing of Homeland Security. Hey, Homeland Security is already using Wal-Mart to have people spy on each other. Better be careful next time you pick up that box of cake mix or brownies. Didn’t you hear? The government is saying it’s a National Security risk. Laugh if you want, small steps first. What happens when they tell you that the only thing you need is a pill each day? What they don’t tell you is the mind controlling drug that is in it. To much? Maybe.

Take a look at what has happened over the years.

You are suppose to be politically correct.

You are not suppose to offend Muslims but it’s okay to offend Christians or Jews.

Christmas trees are Holiday trees.

Business shouldn’t have a Christmas tree because it may be offence to non believers.

You shouldn’t use the term illegal immigrant.

You are a racist if you question Obama or his policies.

You are a domestic terrorist if you question the government.

Your Forth Amendment Rights are being violated by the government for your own safety. Where is Congress on this one? Do they even know what the Constitution says?

Land of the Free? Not as long as the government has a say in the matter. Control first. Social Security, taxes, TV, health care, food, travel, The Internet. What’s next, your 401K, restricted travel from state to state, a government official on every corner checking your papers?

What? No papers?

I haven’t seen Obama’s papers but that’s suppose to be okay, you know, politically correct, illegal immigrant, government control.

  1. Terry it’s amazing were alive the way things are today. We used to ride in the back of pickups, even on the open tailgate, now illegal. So many things we did now are illegal, have to protect us from ourselves. We have lost so much freedom and it has been incremental like the frog in boiling water. I don’t know how we will get it back short of a revolution.

    • It reminds me of the the movie “I ROBOT” where the machines stated that they must protect us from ourselves. Kind of makes you wonder.

  3. 1, in the 60s we were worried about living and missing out on some part of life, we were FREE! Now we worry about dieing and our souls are all dead. We were FREE, now we are slaves of those that teach us fear. “They” won “we” lost. But we are still alive and we can regain our FREEDOM!!! Our kids can live FREE! WE can again Love Life every day WE are Alive. “They” can learn to Fear US!
