As our country politically evolves many are taking the time to reevaluate their core beliefs and striving to more fully understand the impact our government has on our unique freedoms and liberties. For decades our constitution has stood tall, representing a beacon of hope and opportunity world wide. Americans are uniquely gifted.
There are, at least, two justified questions concerning our country; are we evolving or are we eroding? And, are we sliding toward socialism (and, in my opinion, mediocrity)? No matter your political position, unarguably, we are entering a shift in the size and reach of our government. To many the game of politics seems beyond comprehension and difficult to understand. Even though the task is difficult, every generation must decide America’s future. It’s not easy and may take a little soul searching and honesty mixed with an open mind—without a self-serving agenda. Your participation is not optional. You have the power, the opportunity, and the obligation to participate.
A brief outline of principles with which most Americans would agree.
