America too far gone to save? ~ By Anthony Martin

"Yes, I will continue to fight, " he continued, "But frankly I don't see a lot of improvement. Not only do I have to fight politicians who are throwing our freedoms into the garbage can, trampling on the Constitution in the process, but I must constantly fight to attempt to educate my fellow citizens in what it means to live in a free society with a Constitution that is supposed to protect our freedoms with the full force of the law. The number of people in America today who understand that the Constitution exists to protect our freedoms from government encroachments is very small."

I do not know who the patriot is that Anthony is writing about. Hopefully, Anthony was able to offer the person some encouragement. I can certainly relate to Anthony's person of interest, however, it would be sad if they are right. Is America too far gone to save?

Many of us still hope and pray that good people that believe in our freedom will come along and get voted into office. But are there enough of those people to start getting into office and helping us get our freedom back? And maybe the bigger question is, can we eventually educate enough people so they will understand the need to vote those people into office? Well, then, we can't just give up working and fighting to get the right people on the ballots, and we can never give up trying to get enough voters for them to get into office. We must. There is only one alternative, as Anthony wrote:
Many if not most citizens have no intention of allowing themselves to become slaves to a government that has become drunk on its own power. Thus, the only alternative is war.
So, for those of us that are trying and doing our best despite our weariness and disillusionment, we have to keep on keeping on. We must remember what Winston Churchill said on October 29, 1941:
"[N]ever give in, never give in, never, never, never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy."
Winston Churchill is the one person that always had the right to say, "Just sayin'..."

"The country is too far gone to save," he stated with melancholic certainty. "Too many citizens are just like those in Europe who believe that the welfare state that provides cradle to the grave social giveaway programs is to be preserved and expanded at all costs, even if it pushes the nation over the financial cliff into bankruptcy."

The one who provided this sobering analysis is a long time patriot, a defender of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and a fierce opponent of the ever expanding scope and power of an authoritative, centralized government complex. But he shared something that he will tell no one else, something that eats away at his very soul day in and day out. "In spite of the fact that I will continue to fight," he said, "I have grown weary, tired beyond imagination, and disillusioned with not only the politicians who get sent back to Washington over and over but with my fellow citizens who don't have a clue about the nature of the battle we're in."
