I was born in the mid-1950s, and since then, I have seen many wondrous and terrible events come to pass. As a child growing-up during the 60's, I saw the most tumultuous decade of the 20th century unfold right before my eyes. I saw the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the Beatles, I saw the Civil Rights movement, the assassination of Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy. My uncle Lawrence was an L.A. County Sheriff who dealt with Sirhan Sirhan personally. I sat with my family while the Viet Nam war came into our homes each night on the evening news and watched Walter Cronkite as he said : "The war in Viet Nam was UN-winnable" I saw the city of Los Angeles huddle in fear because of Charles Manson. I also saw it burn during the Watts riots. And on July 20, 1969, I sat in my living room with my entire family and watched men walk on the moon. Yes, it was a wondrous and yet at the same time a tumultuous decade filled with achievement & change. Even as a young boy, I was still able to understand that things would never be the same in America again.
During the 1970s, I watched an American President resign over a scandal. From 1975 to 1980 I served my country. While stationed in western Europe, I took part many patrols and field exercises along the Iron Curtain, and I saw with my own eyes, the barbed wire fences, the mine fields and guard towers separating east form west; separating Freedom from tyrannical oppression.
Fast forward to the new century.
Here it is 2013, and I can only wonder: "What the hell happened?" Where did it all go sideways?
I'll tell you - in 2008, with the election of a junior Senator from Illinois that nobody had ever even heard of before! He came along and promised "Hope" and "Change", but when it comes right down to it....he was the serpent in the garden of Eden telling us all "It's OK to eat the fruit!" Since the election of Barrack Hussein Obama America has never been so divided. Never in all my life, did I ever think that a President of the United States of America would treat us as this man has. He has lied to us on many occasions. He spies on us, telling us to "ignore those voices who warn against tyranny." He has more respect for radical Islam and condemns our Christian values. He took one of the best Health-care systems in the world and is destroying it! He commends homosexuality and awarded a "Medal of Freedom" to Harvey Milk (posthumously), a voracious homosexual who had a penchant for young boys who were hooked on drugs. He has embarrassed us as a nation on the world stage countless times, and like the Emperor Nero, who played his lyre while Rome burned, he plays golf in Martha's Vineyard while the Middle East is engulfed in flames.
I receive no pay for what I do Ladies and Gentlemen, writing to you the American people. The reason I sit at my computer and write this is because I want you all to understand the gravity of our situation. We have to (as a nation) regain what was lost. We have to become a nation of "producers" again and not remain a nation of consumers! If we remain on this track...I'm afraid there won't be an America "One nation under God" left to salvage.
I know you understand.
There is still time to rectify the egregious mistakes that were made Ladies and Gentlemen, we still possess the power to return our country to its former glory. We can reign-in the insanity that is destroying us...I believe this with all my heart!
The right men and women, at the right time and in the right place can make the difference
