People said it didn't matter

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

There is a segment in this country that do not deserve the freedom and liberty that they enjoy. These people are along for the ride, just don't expect them to do a damned thing to contribute, in even the most minor of ways, for the trip. They will fiercely hold on to their sense of entitlement while showing complete and total contempt for those around them that actually do the heavy lifting that makes this country work.

Remember: It is THEIR "Right" and don't you dare forget it!
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you bleep with me, I'll kill you all.

I didn't enlist in the Corps just to watch my country become a Third World Communist Shit-hole. Don't know anyone who did.

Howie, do you know how badly I want to say you are wrong and show that you are?

I can't. Good post, as always.  :patriot:
