Thomas Paine said the following words and there is no better time to remember them but now:
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman."
"Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”
"What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value."
"When men yield up the privilege of thinking, the last shadow of liberty quits the horizon."
A lot of things are being thrown at Americans now and more are coming in the following weeks preceding the National Election. There are groups of people who would have America give up it's sovereignty to the U.N. and other world bodies. We must not allow this to happen.
We hear daily from the media all the bad news about this country. Today there was a "major" report that employment (new jobs) have fallen over the previous months. But next week, if you listen hard, there will be a report that new hires have risen over last month.
Just remember to try and keep things in perspective.
Things are not as bad as you are led to believe.
