Americans are at a crossroads

Personal responsibility and liberty or empty promises and tyranny

Americans are at a crossroads. One path, the roughest road to travel, the one paved with personal responsibility, leads to liberty. The other path, the one Dear Leader wants you to walk, the one paved with empty promises, is the road to tyranny. America seems to be equally divided between those who would take the path of least resistance, those that are willing to take the rough road and those that do not realize that there is any fork in the road. Sadly, a large segment of America is choosing to ignore reality.

I struggle with why a portion of America’s population chooses not to see that there are choices to make, paths to follow and the clock is ticking. I would like to think that it is because the events of the last twelve months have not had any effect on them, but that is not logical. The other option, the logical one, is that these people are ignoring what is happening and hoping it will go away. Tyranny will not go away, it will continue to creep into your lives until you are enslaved.

Those that choose the path of least resistance, the road to tyranny, are willing to trade their liberty for the promise of health care, environmental cleansing, and a redistribution of wealth that will allow the poor to get more, while forcing the rich to give it to them, and all of us get to be equal. How is that living? Being rewarded for mediocrity is not living. Giving away your hard earned wages is not living either. Going to the government, hat in hand, to get what the government deems is your share, is not living either. East Berlin is the best one can hope for if they go down the Marxist path; China, the prisons and torture, the worst one can hope for. Neither option drips with hope in my mind. Why become a doctor, all those years of school and training, only to be told how little you can make, by the government (it is in all the versions of the health care bill). Might as well be schlepping slurpees at the Circle K…
