For the last two weeks I’ve been away from the computer spending time with my mother. My mother and I completed a number of projects around the house when I was home. We had good conversation, reminiscing about good times and bad times. Talking about the now and what’s on the horizon. I intentionally stayed away from posting anything because I wanted to devote my time and energy towards my mother. She deserves it. I don’t see her as much as I would like, so when I do get the opportunity it needs to be about her. But now I’m back and I’m ready to go.
When I was home I did find time to squeeze some political conversation in with a few friends and what I learned was quite revealing. I learned a great deal about the mindset of the average voter in a state (Pennsylvania) that has been trending left for the last twenty years. Being born and raised there, then moving away from Pennsylvania for 20 plus years allows me to view things from a unique perspective in regards to just how much the state has changed. This is a perspective that many in the state do not have because to be honest they have been conditioned to accept these significant and restrictive changes in their lives. They have lost a number of liberties and they don’t even realize it. When I was living there being on welfare or some type of state assistance was frowned upon. There was an understanding back then that people living off the wages of others was unacceptable. That state assistance no matter how many good intentions was a hand out not an entitlement. That understanding appears to have changed and in a future post I will explain why I believe this change in mindset has occurred. It also helped me understand why a President who resides over one of the worst economic recoveries since the great depression is still polling near 50 percent and the battle for the future no matter who is elected we conservatives will have to wage to shift a mindset that is comfortable with big government in their lives to one that embraces individualism. This battle is for the heart and soul of America and for the restoration of liberty and it will not be an easy one.
America must fundamentally change if there is any hope to restore our constitution and individual liberty. This change begins with the individual and spreads to the various levels of government both on the state and federal level. But for now I wanted this to inform you all that I’m back and ready to go. There is a great deal of work to do and little time to do it.
More to come.
Liberty forever, freedom for all!
