Another letter to a friend
I do so enjoy
talking with people, because it restores my faith in the American people. As you know I work in NYC, and there are so many
people that are so defeatist. They lean very much to the left, and just see everything that is wrong with this country and
NONE of the good things that are there, like its people.
are so many folks that live between the east and left coast of this wonderful nation. Many are very traditional, and
conservative. But are also mislead by a left leaning media, which has a very obvious agenda, if anyone would care to really
take the time to look. And herein lays the problem. There are as I had said many folks that would gladly push the left to
back burner forever, if they were just informed better and made more aware, but most are apathetic, which is a shame.
I myself have
become that way at times, and just when I think it doesn't matter anymore, I find something in the news that so enrages me,
that I just get back on my soapbox and start again. I wish more folks would see it that way.
good news is that there is a rising tide in this country, that is slowly beginning to wake up from its apathy, and it is mad.
Mad that it is being told by a very vocal minority, that its that God is not allowed in just about any part of their lives. They are tired of being told that their values
are out of touch, and not instep with mainstream America, when quite the
opposite is true. They are tired of being told that the American culture, aka, the American experience, is one of tyranny
and oppression, and that their history, is not one of compassion. They are tired of being talked down to in condescending
manner by elitists that think that they know what is best for all the citizens of this nation. And finally they are very tired of being told of all that
is wrong, with this nation
and not of what is good.
I have been for the last few years working hard to change that image. I have some minor success, and have brought some folks
around to my way of thought, but I fear that there is so much more to be done.
It is my hope
that someday we will be a proud nation again, under God, and indivisible.
