If you understand what happened in the 2008 and 2012 Presidential elections, and the 2010 mid-term elections, then you have to understand that the mid-term elections in 2014 are going to be pivotal. The group of Americans known as the Greatest Generation were unfortunately persuaded to "sit out" and not vote for Romney. Unless that dynamic changes and the Greatest Generation stands up again, Conservative candidates will never win elections of consequence EVER again.
The typical U.S. household is headed by a person age 65 or older and that person has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data released Monday. If all of the “Greatest Generation” have all of the money, then how about you all stand together again and help us try to elect someone who might be near honest and not be after the destruction of our Republic.
In the age of Division Politics (war against women, reverse discrimination, politics of incrimination) you can read in the lame stream media that they like to refer to this demographic as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of them are "Baby Boomers" getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. They walk a little slower these days and their eyes and hearing are not what they once were. They have worked hard, raised their children, worshiped their God and grown old together. Yes, they are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing them off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.
In school they studied English, history, math, and science which enabled them to lead America into the technological age. Most of them remember what outhouses were, many of them with firsthand experience.
They remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to their homes. For those of you who don't know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, they lived those days.
They are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing them off. They won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam. They can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and they know where to place their hand while doing so. They wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. They didn't fight for the Socialist States of America; they fought for the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave."
They wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. They know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America, and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even seen some tears running down their cheeks as they sang. They have lived what many of you have only read in history books and they feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.
Yes, they are old and slow these days but rest assured, they have at least one good fight left in them. They have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now they are going to have to save it, one more time. It is their country and nobody is going to take it away from them. They took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath they plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we all love but, like our founders, there is no way they are going to remain silent.
It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. You fell for the "Hope and Change" which in reality was nothing but "Hype and Lies."
You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don't like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or "Climbing the Social Ladder" to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the "Great Lie" in 2008 are now having buyer's remorse. With all the education the Greatest Generation gave you, you didn't have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the 'Kool-Aid.' Now you're paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom.
This is what you voted for and this is what you got. The Greatest Generation entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.
Well, don't worry youngsters, the Greatest Generation is here to be great once again, and in 2014 they are going to take back our nation. They may drive a little slower than you would like but they get where they're going, and in 2014 they're going to the polls by the millions.
This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to "We the People" and "We the People" plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. I can only imagine that the Greatest Generation hopes this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to their grandchildren. So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the "Greatest Generation."
