Estimates the unemployment rate for eighteen to twenty-five year olds are roughly 25% in the US. My home state of Michigan is likely higher, much higher.
How long can this go on and the country not suffer drastic harm? Like it or not most of us here are not the future of this country; we are on the contrary, responsible to those who are. The young men and women who are as I write this far from home defending our freedom. Say what you like about the wars we are involved in, the kids, yes kids, fighting it are remarkable people who are showing a dedication; loyalty to country and self-sacrifice that is inspiring.
We as the generation that brought them into this world and raised them owe a responsibility that I do believe is sacred.
Daily we are confronted with a decay of politics and society that is at least mind-boggling and at worst catastrophic. Our government ignores our will, calls us racist, narrow-minded and stupid. The young voted for Obama in record numbers, not surprising really, since he was hipper and speaks a language that his opponent couldn’t master even if he had wanted to (which he didn’t). Obama worked the young people of this country like no candidate since Kennedy. Any who have children understand they constantly do things that vex and try their parents patience. We just wish they would grow up already. How is this to happen if a large portion can’t find work which will teach the lessons needed to become the adults all in our generation wish them to be.
This is the work we have in front of us. The Socialist-Democratic destruction of our republic has taken years to develop; it will not be overturned easily or quickly. Our generation may not see the restoration of our country in our lifetime. The battle, and it is a battle, must never the less be joined. Benefit for the over 40 crowd may not come but we owe it, as I said earlier, as a sacred obligation to our children, to see through to the end the turning back of the insidious agenda of those that now seek to RULE us.
November 2010 is our first chance not to send a message but to take our republic back.
Staying on the sidelines is no longer an option. Our children expect more of us; even if they don’t know it.
