I can’t give credit to the person who wrote this, because
I have no idea where it started. I received it in an email
........... from a very long list of senders. Whoever this
person is, I congratulate you, for being a true American,
who remembers the way this country was, before it was
highjacked by the liberals.I pass it on to all of you to read, maybe copy, and send
it to some of your friends.
FIRST OF ALL, I HOPE EACH OF YOU WILL TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS ENTIRE E-MAIL; WHETHER YOU ARE DEMOCRAT, REPUBLICAN OR INDEPENDENT MATTERS NOT. BUT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WILL NEVER KNOW OF AMERICA'S PAST LOYALTY TO THIS GREAT COUNTRY, IF THEY DO NOT HEAR IT FROM THOSE OF US WHO SPEND THE TIME TO E-MAIL TO THOSE PEOPLE WE LOVE..........
It doesn't matter who you are, where you live, your religion, race, or sex. This is serious stuff. What a differ ence 60 years makes..!!!I know everyone has a different opinion on the war and our current President, But this article makes a lot of sense and I hope you will take 2 minutes and read it and give it some thought.
I have never seen the 'situation' expressed any better in words!
Recently I was talking to a friend about the upcoming election and the candidates. As we ended our discussion he said, 'The only decision you have to make is who you want sitting in that seat in the White House when - NOT IF - but 'when' we get hit again and millions of American lives are put at risk! You ain't gonna like losing.'
President Bush did make a bad mistake in the war on terrorism. But the mistake was not his decision to go to war in Iraq. Bush's mistake came in his belief that this country is the same one his father fought for in WWII. It is not.
Back then we had just come out of a vicious depression. The country was steeled by the hardship of that depression but they still believed fervently in this country. They knew that the people had elected their leaders so it was the people's duty to back those leaders.
Therefore when the war broke out the people came together, rallied behind and stuck w ith their leaders whether they had voted for them or not or whether the war was going badly or not.
And war was just as distasteful and the anguish just as great then as it is today. Often there were more casualties in one day in WWII than we have had in the entire Iraq war. But that did not matter. The people stuck with the President because it was their patriotic duty. Americans put aside their differences in WWII and worked together to win that war.
Everyone from every strata of society from young to old pitched in. Small children pulled little wagons around to gather scrap metal for the war effort. Grade school students saved their pennies to buy stamps for war bonds to help the effort. (Yes, we actually did these things 'back then')...........
Men who were too old or medically 4F lied about their age or condition trying their best to join the military. Women doubled their work to keep things going at home. Harsh rationing of everything from gasoline to soap to butter was imposed yet there was very little complaining. You never heard prominent people on the radio belittling the President. Interestingly enough in those days there were no fat cat actors and entertainers who ran off to visit and fawn over dictators of hostile countries and complain to them about our President. Instead they made upbeat films and entertained our troops to help the troops' morale. And a bunch even enlisted.
And imagine this: Teachers in schools actually started the day off with a Pledge of Allegiance and with prayers for our country and our troops! Back then no newspaper would have dared point out certain weak spots in our cities where bombs could be set off to cause the maximum damage. No newspaper would have dared complain about what we were doing to catch spies.
A newspaper would have been laughed out of existence if it had complained that German or Japanese soldiers were being 'tortured' by being forced to wear women's underwear or subjected to interrogation by a woman or being scared by a dog or did not have air conditioning.
There were a lot of things different back then We were not subjected to a constant bombardment of pornography, perversion, and promiscuity in movies or on radio. We did not have legions of crack heads, dope pushers, and armed gangs roaming our streets.
No, President Bush did not make a mistake in his handling of terrorism. He made the mistake of believing that we still had the courage and fortitude of our fathers. He believed that this was still the country that our fathers fought so dearly to preserve. It is not the same country. It is now a cross between Sodom and Gomorrah and the land of Oz. We did unite for a short while after 9/11, but our attitude changed when we found out that defending our country would require some sacrifices.
We are in great danger. The terrorists are fanatic Muslims. They believe that it is okay, even their duty to kill anyone who will not convert to Islam. It has been estimated that about one third or over three hundred million Muslims are sympathetic to the terrorists' cause... Hitler and Tojo combined did not have nearly that many potential recruits.
So... We either win it - or lose it - and you ain't gonna like losing.
America is not at war. The military is at war. America is at the mall.
Take a couple of minutes to read this. Then I ask that you THINK ABOUT IT when you vote in November. Voting Democrat or Republican is most definitely YOUR CHOICE. Just remember what you have just read.
Send this to everyone you know, if you've got the guts to do it!!!
However, millions of the younger generations will not even know what this is all about.......all we can do is try to inform.....try to help in any way we can!
