Second Rate America

America has become a dysfunctional nation. Evidence for this thesis is omnipresent. From the space program to our school systems this nation is no longer competitive on the World Stage. Falling from its high perch wasn’t easy. Government entities worked especially hard to downgrade every institution and industry in the country. With a hundred billion dollar space station orbiting the Earth, United States astronauts must hitch a ride with the Russians. Poor planning and reduced appropriations to NASA led to this tragic downgrade. Worse, many of their best scientists may not have jobs for long. Compared to foreign students their American counterparts score multiple levels below them on math and science tests. Diluted curriculums and lack of emphasis on the importance of education have contributed to this downward slide in academics. Traditional morality established by religion and strong family values, has given way to a multi-dimensional culture which has forgotten its foundations. A nation, in order to be a concrete entity, must have the elemental basis to keep itself strong. One of our finest radio show hosts’ Michael Savage noted: “borders, language and culture” are the keys to defining who we are and where we have been. There are those in our government who desire to subvert our culture with ridiculous laws to satisfy a small group of deviants. Our military, one of the finest in the World, has become a social experiment that dishonors the very essence of its reason for existence. Survival of the American experiment depends on a strong military. The Executive Branch’s intrusive incursion into the fundamental fabric of our armed forces has degraded our capacity to defend the nation when called upon to do so. Fundamental changes are needed in the central government to revitalize a country that has been torn from within. Time has come to put America first again and place people in power who think likewise. Americans’ acumen of choosing its political representation has faltered over the last decade. 2014 could reenergize the American dream. Let’s hope sense and sensibility returns to the electorate.
