How have we fallen so far?

“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country. 

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man. 

Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.”

We applaud this as a great speech by a great man… yet we do nothing to make his words a reality.

America is no longer a great nation of citizens… it is now a troubled nation of self-proclaimed victims.

  1. It’s gonna be an interesting 4 years. But hey, when you get too discouraged just think about us up here in the Great White North!

  2. Focus on the future, two years is only a moment away.

  3. My concern with the results is that we may now become the Socialist States of America.

  4. The results of this election are very similar to the one in 1992, and it only took a short period of time before that tilted back the other way.

    There is no block-proof majority in congress, so any such legislation will face a rocky, uphill battle, and only serve to repeat the reversal of the 1990’s
