PostHeaderIcon Lost Forever?

I do not recall ever reading or even hearing of Herb London; but he has a powerful piece on Town Hall entitled, “I Lost My Country.”:

…I don’t think the Republicans merely lost an election, I believe many of us lost a country…

The America of now is one where Orwellian logic rules. Forced redistribution of wealth is fairness. Taxes are patriotic. The free market should be a regulated market. Big government is good for you. Politicians know what kind of healthcare is best for you. Choice should be limited, except when it comes to abortion. Power comes from being powerless. Progressive education is designed to promote progress toward socialism. Race doesn’t count unless a person of color tells you it counts. Higher education gets lower each year. Those who create our problems should be asked to solve them. Religion should be a private matter that does not inform public morality. Liberal is radical. Free speech is selective speech. Courage is impetuousness…

Where is my America, the place of fair play, individual rights, the rule of law and respect for private property? Was the past merely a dream from which I have awakened? Can that America of exceptionalism return? Can it find its way back into the public consciousness?

I have my doubts. Now the change agents scream “everything will be different.” Alas, they are right. It appears as if everything will be different, most especially the end of an America I loved.

Read the whole thing… and weep with him. ◄Dave►

  • It is the result of micromanagement by committee.
    I wonder how different the country would be if you needed an 80% majority to pass a law and only 40% to overturn it. Drop an expiration on them too while we are at it.

    All three good ideas. Another, would be that they have to repeal an old one, before they can pass a new one. I’ll bring them all up at the ConCon for the new Flyover States of America. 🙂 ◄Dave►

    Better yet, I think everything after the first phrase in the First Amendment is superfluous. “Congress shall make no law…” – now if they had just stopped right there… 🙂 ◄Dave►
