Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
Below is part of a newsletter I receive daily from Simon Black and it got me thinking about family, which most American’s closely associate with Christmas and I thought it appropriate for this holiday notice.
The direct product of pitiful leadership.
We trust in our leaders to maintain the peace. To preserve the purchasing power of our savings. To secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.
Yet instead, they achieve record levels of debt, thrusting obligations upon unborn generations so that they can wage wars, drop bombs, buy drones, and spy on their citizens.
And they just expect us to take it.
“Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori” is a lie. We aren’t born with obligations to some politician who expects us to sacrifice for the ‘greater good’ (as defined in his sole discretion).
Our obligation is to family first. It’s to the small circle of people that we grip hands with to stare down an uncertain future.
Family is the most important thing there is, and it’s why we all do what we do.
If you plant a tomato seed in the ground, it grows and matures, eventually producing dozens of tomatoes itself.
Each one of those tomatoes has dozens of seeds inside… the idea being that hopefully at least one of those dozens of seeds inside dozens of tomatoes will make it into the dirt, germinate, and continue the line again.
Family is the most natural thing in the universe. And it’s literally why (and how) we’re all here.
We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religion destroys morals, and our banks destroy the economy. ” ~ Chris Hedges
To that OLDDOG adds
Fear of the future destroys families which is the real backbone of America, so let us not be afraid, but resolve to reconstruct our government.
God helps those who help themselves!
