I once was quipped with a bit of wisdom that reminds me of what this country is going through right now. It was, “What was the greatest feat the devil achieved?” I said I did not know, to which he replied, Convincing the world that he did not exist.”
There are legions of people following the Pied Piper aimlessly, blindlessly, mindlessly, without knowing why or where they are going. Please, America- open your eyes, look at what is going on all around you,- corruption, scandals, lies abound. Is this the new normal? I think not; not in the world I grew up in that had real heroes,- Ronald Reagan, John Wayne, Buford Pusser, Clint Eastwood, and yes, James Ladd, my agriculture teacher. Real men who stood for integrity and honor.
America, please open your eyes and ears, question the Pied Piper, educate yourself on current social and political issues. Ask yourself are all these things that are proposed to be free really free? Examine both sides of the coin, and I feel if you take a long hard look, you cannot come to any other conclusion that these “free” entitlements have a hefty price tag for you and I to share.
May God bless you and reveal the truth to you.
