This week I took my 14 year old son to see the remake of the Red Dawn movie. I was about his age when I saw the original Red Dawn. The first movie freaked me out a little about the chance of our country being taken over by a foreign enemy.
The thought of our entire way of life being threatened in the blink of an eye stuck with me. This go around I had an entirely different perspective watching the remake now being somewhat older and wiser (the latter is arguable to some).
Although we do have to worry about outside threats but out our country has been at war within for many years. Unfortunately we are losing this battle. The progressive movement has eliminated prayer in school, won the right for abortions, and we are on our way to a government-run single payer healthcare.
Half our country would rather have “free” stuff than true freedom.
People like Sandra Fluke are not bombing us with IED’s but killing our freedoms by making us pay for her IUD’s. They are aggressively attacking our American principles on a daily basis. At what point did it become logical for me to help pay for a 30 something year old law student’s birth control?
One of this movements biggest tactical strategies is the Federal department of education. They have slowly but surely changed the minds and views of what our younger generations view as moral and right. A constant fight against what they are being taught at home.
Success and hard work is demonized. People with Judeo-Christian beliefs are viewed as nutty extremists that can’t handle the progressive new times.
It is like the story of slowly turning up the heat on the frog to eventually boil it. We are almost cooked, my friends, unless we get out there and win the cultural war.
We must defeat their empty feel good ideology . We have to help our youth understand that self reliance is much better than government dependency.
Don’t give up. Keep fighting the good fight.
