What course do we want to take?
We are at a pivotal time where the course of our country may be set for decades to come. The very fiber of what, how and why this country was founded has been compromised, shredded and stripped away. We have turned a blind eye and allowed our Constitution and way of life be marginalized to the benefit of a group of power mongers whose only interest is themselves while being led by a corrupt political system that hates this country in the guise of loving it. There are groups who want to continue to tear down this country and many of them have willing accomplices of power in our government. Many are running scared because a common businessman leads the GOP primaries and they feel threatened because their power status is being exposed for what it truly is.
Open your eyes and look around. Our president is running around making deals with dictators and thugs and agreeing with them on hating America; the democratic frontrunner is facing possible FBI indictments; ISIS remains unchecked killing people right and left and surely plotting to do so here, etc.
The question remains, do we continue the course or do we put aside our petty desires and have the guts to tell it like it is and take the necessary steps to change it? The choice is obvious to me, and thank God there are a lot of angry people out there who can see it, too.
