Do Our Troops Wonder WHAT They're Defending?

All the silly stuff we use to divert ourselves from what really matters...the erosion of family values...the morality of convenience...the 58% of Americans who never even bother to vote...

Wouldn't that make YOU wonder? It sure does ME.

Unfortunately it seems that the majority of us are so apathetic that we’ve let Big Business gain control of our country. And for them its all about the bottom line, which means that what ever will help their future bottom line are the rules that come down from our judicial system these days. So we remove ‘God’ from almost everything, remove discipline of our children from the parents and give it to who? Think about it who can discipline our children these day? Not us, its now called abuse, not the schools system because we’ll sue them it they touch our precious little kids. So it seems the only ones who have the right to discipline out children is the court system, which only gets involved when its already way too late. We slowly allow the government and business interests take away our freedoms which were granted to us through the blood of our men and women who fought to preserve it for us.

I could go on and on, but whats the point, you’ve heard it all before.

So who is to blame for the current condition of our country? Yes you’re right, we can’t blame anyone but ourselves, because we’ve let them through out apathy.

I for one can not hate big business. without it we would not have much of what we use and need daily in our lives.they standardize parts so things can be replaced without having to be custom built or ordered from some little place in middle of no where.sure,there are rotten apples in big business,but they provide a ton of jobs ,pay a lot of taxes,have more money for r&d to improve our life. think what it would be to have cars that were not a lot of standard parts,bearings,lights ,spark plugs,.now let's move on to the judicial system,it's not supposed to write law. it's supposed to determine if the laws written by our state and local and federal gov,which we elect follow the constitution of the states and our national constitution. a lack of knowledge about our gov is one of our biggest problems these days,i believe. wist,i believe that our soldiers more than anyone know what they are defending because they have seen what is out there.i have been there and and i still believe in this country.nothing is perfect ,not us ,not the country butwe need to stop letting a few individuals change things like the pledge or our money. but that is what this country is about freedom to think and speak as we like ,view our ideas, speak out on things. in other countries the very ones who want to change us to other systems would not have the right to even voice their opinions.thanks you for allowing me this space to state my opinion and my belief.
