American Cry Babies Can't Take The Pain...Submitted by Prairiemae on Sat, 01/24/2009 - 01:33
My 97 year old great uncle recently wrote a letter to his family and friends comparing today's troubles to that of the Great Depression. He was in the poor class at the time and at the bottom he begged house to house for food. Today he contracts with the military and has invented and developed various military items and has made a name for himself.
He attributes his success to living through the tough times so he could be grateful for what he had. Those tough times inspired him to work hard and be the success that he is today. He is sure it is just the kind of medicine America needs again today and I agree.
Can Americans handle another depression? I think we can. We are not afraid. We will help each other get through it and we will survive and come out stronger and better than before - IF we
are allowed to go through those tough times.
What we don't need is a government that tries to protect us from any hurt. Children who are coddled end up paying for it later in life because they can't handle the pains that life brings. Is that what we want the American people to be? A mass of whiny babies who can't take care of themselves and need the government to "save" them from every pain in their life? We are not a socialist democracy. We are the Republic of The United States of America. We can take it and we can come away stronger for it. If you agree, tell your congress members that you are not afraid, they need to know.
Demand your congress members to oppose the stimulus bill.
Demand your congress member to cut our taxes.
Demand your congress member spend less.
If they don't listen, grab your pitch forks.
