Christmas is over, and the New Year is approaching like a welcome breath of fresh air! 2015 was a very challenging year for me personally, but it was also a year of growth, making new friends, new contacts, and generally falling in love with life again. This brings me to my post:
The ole’ Dawg is back in full force and, Lord willing, is going to attempt some pretty incredible things this year!
There’s an election coming up in 2016, and this election promises to define the direction our nation will follow for generations to come. Right now, it saddens me to say we are on the Snowball Express heading quickly into the depths of big government socialism. I am truly amazed at the number of people cheering this journey, never once questioning the failure of almost every single socialist regime in history! I shudder when I ponder the idea of trading my personal liberty for a handful of government-controlled entitlements. The very thought of placing my children’s future into the hands of the same entity that brought us Amtrak, the Affordable Care Act, and the VA catastrophe puts a knot in my stomach! I hear the same “you need government” argument over and over, and I do agree we must have order and process, but do we need to have this leviathan controlling every aspect of our existence? I think not!
I often ask myself, “What can I do to help stop this insanity?”
The answer….. “Not much, by myself.”
I can, however, sharpen my pen (or keyboard, if you will), and return to barking out the message as much as possible. If I can teach, cajole, or persuade a mere handful of people to stop and think about who and what they are promoting in the “Land of the Free”, maybe….just maybe, the message will spread.
I invite you all to do the same this year, and I’m not just talking about social media. Be a living example of what “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” looks like. Do NOT cower before those that attempt to shame you for your ideas, choice of words, or methods of defending yourself and family. Actions speak louder than words, so take actions based on your views. Get involved in local/state/national politics. If you’re too busy, then donate to a candidate that shares your values. Together, we can purge the socialist agenda from our government and gain our freedom back. It is not too late!
In the months ahead, I will be tackling issues and actions here as much as time will allow. I invite your feedback, questions and ideas. Most of all, I invite you to follow this blog! Together, we’ll make America great again!
Al “The Atomic Dawg”!
