I love my Country dearly, and I hate to be pessimistic about her future, but at some point you have to take an honest look at the numbers. She's almost gone, people. Most of the up and coming generation doesn't even have a clue as to the treasure America is, let alone have what it will take to keep her alive. It will take either a miracle or a series of unimaginable horrors to change that, I'm afraid.
This frame of mind is especially hard on those of us with young children. I wish I could be like so many of my friends who say things like "oh things are going to turn around soon"
or "most of those people don't really want to see us dead."
I know that all the people who are going to vote Obama into the White House are going to get what he's promising them. Change. Boy howdy are we going to get that!
