Back in 2008 on election day, Black Panthers were stationed around voting precincts in Philadelphia. They stood in front of the door of the voting location, and in at least one documented incident, brandished a night stick. There were also allegations of racial comments being made by the Panthers and other intimidating language. That case was easily proved and a finding of “guilty” was reached in the DOJ…before the case was suddenly ordered dropped a couple of months ago. Now explosive allegations of corruption in the DOJ are coming out.
Do we have what it takes to stop the corruption, recklessness, and greed that threaten to destroy our country? Are we willing to make the tough decisions necessary to regain our strength, or will we continue to plow obliviously ahead while our nation descends into economic insolvency and geopolitical vulnerability?
The biggest problems our country has today relate to government planning gone awry. The huge solvency problems we have with Social Security and Medicare all relate to assumptions these government planned systems were built on that turned out to be false. Freedom is about humility not hubris. Our nation’s current problems reflect the latter.
