When is our country going to get back on track?


#1

I am 21 and I feel like I will never even have a good future to look forward to for the rest of my lifetime sadly. There is too much economic burden and political correctness, this generation is both economically and civially oppressed I believe. I’m willing to fight for it though. When and what can we expect when our country gets back on track to it’s roots? Who’ll be affected?

This country cannot expect to get back to its roots until STATE legislatures push back. Ignore your congressmen, ignore your senators… focus solely on your local and state governments. It is the only place where representation is to scale and the only place you can affect meaningful change.

Stand your ground, stick to your values, love your family and friends, and look for the good things in life. If you’re beat down and depressed, those around you will follow or leave. That helps no one. Mike gave some good advice to follow too. As to when change will come, that depends on when enough people get fed up or cut off from their free lunches because our economy tanks. Those that see it coming and prepare will ride out the storm much better then those that do not. A huge part of riding that wave out will be those close to you.

Great advice! Personally, I don’t see things changing until this country is on it’s knees financially (are we not already?). That is the only thing many AmeriKans notice–when it hits the pocketbook. But, those who live off the government hand-outs never feel that pinch because as taxpayers feel the pinch of rising taxes and prices, the government gives the lazy and stupid increases and food stamps. Why should they care if it costs $7.00 a pound for ground beef, or $6.00 for a half gallon of milk??? They’ll just get an increase in food stamps! Or, they’ll just have more babies to increase their welfare checks. But, the poor taxpayer has to reach deeper into his own pockets to put food on his children’s table. I just wonder what is going to happen once there are more people on welfare than there are working taxpayers to pay for it? Maybe then AmeriKans will wake up. And then we’ll all go skipping down the yellow brick road singing the praises of the commie-muslim who graced the WH. Welcome to commie utopia…for real.

I hate to throw a wet blanket on the topic but I think it’s too late already. I think Obama is the ‘nail in the coffin’.

Don’t be fooled. Things can and will get MUCH, MUCH worse. I was watching “The Pianist” last night. THAT is what we have to look forward to if something doesn’t change.

Son I’m just an Ol Cowboy but I’ve been around the ranch a few times and can offer only the advice based on my experiences.
When I was a 17 year old teen our generation did not expect to start out in life at $50K annually.
We got jobs at McDonalds or working other peoples horses etc when we were kids. We never expected to do these jobs forever. We got educations and advanced in life.

Obama won his first term with the help you’re your generation by promising things college kids wanted to hear. Then he never delivered. He did the same with almost all the groups he used to win a second term. He promised Gay marriage, free cell phones, and immigration reform to win segments of the populace. The point is never take a free hand out from the traveling snake oil salesman in the covered wagon.

Your generation will revolt or become repressed by government to the point of socialistic poverty as many countries in Europe are. Your generation or your children’s will settle for living in small condos of 1000 sq ft built like typical government buildings in thousand unit blocks.
You already owe tens of thousands of tax dollars this generation have allowed to build on your backs.

To change things your generation and mine need to pay attention to politics. At all levels. READ bills coming to the Congress. Do not allow the passing of bills without reading them. Hold your politians accountable.

Above all son, get armed! Buy assault weapons and train with them in shooting sports. The second amendment was not about self defense or hunting. It is totally about a citizenry being stronger than the government. Not to be a “Doomsday Prepper” but to be an American that the government is leery of. Because with 200 million Americans armed and stocked with ammo, that train for fun in sports such as IDPA, 3 Gun, and hunting, the government understands very well they are indeed working for the people. When governments fear the people there is freedom, when people fear the government there is tyranny. This is why the left (communists) are pushing so hard for gun control. Because it is really people control. They want hand outs from the government taken from those who will work hard so they do not have to. Teach your children to shoot and handle firearms safely. Because an armed and trained citizenry will demand the other rights in our bill of rights be honored. The second amendment protects all the rest of the amendments. King George tried to take weapons from the citizens, andthe fight was on.

I make my children read the entire constitution. The bill rights, and the declaration of independence every fourth of July. I pay them each $100 and it is the best $200 annual investment I can make against the socailistic teachings of government run school systems I sit quietly and listen to every word.

I’ve taught them to shoot, and hunt. THIS makes them an adversary to an oppressive government, and a person that learns to respect the freedom others have while defending their own.

It starts with you lad. **READ THESE DOCUMENTS ANNUALLY! **And make it a habit you make your children do being well rewarded for doing so. Learn our economic system, it is capitalism. Learn to run your own business and be independent. Hire others and help those that will not learn this skill. In short, get back to the fundamentals of freedom. Sorry for the long answer. But the bottom line son is it’s all about an armed citizenry that needs no help from the government, THAT is what gives you freedom. Why do you think every government in every nation wants to disarm it’s people? NEVER BE DEPENDENT ON ANYONE!!!

"Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state."
Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President

"The constitutions of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property and freedom of the press."
Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President

For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well organized and armed militia is their best security."
Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President. Source: Eighth Annual Message, November 8, 1808

"[T]he people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the same when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it."
Samuel Adams

"…It is always dangerous to the liberties of the people to have an army stationed among them, over which they have no control…The Militia is composed of free Citizens. There is therefore no danger of their making use of their power to the destruction of their own Rights, or suffering others to invade them."
Samuel Adams

"The said Constitution [shall] be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms."
Samuel Adams of Massachusetts – U.S. Constitution ratification convention, 1788

AND LEARN TO DO THIS!

THIS puts fear into the hearts of Federal agents. THESE would be the men coming to take your guns. With 200 million like this, it will never happen.
Train for war to keep peace. If everyone could do this there would be no crime and a government that behaves well.
Well…maybe not to this extreme, this guy is awesome good!!!

This country will not get back on track until the general populous fully realizes what it has lost.
