Fight for nation's future

Some people say the American dream is dead. We have ever-expanding federal government that spends too much and infringes on individual liberties in all aspects of our lives. Some people seem to exist to get offended by words or symbols while they pay no attention to the deeds that negatively affect every American.

 

It is not the liberal groups that are destroying our nation by their unholy alliances. Rather, it is general voter apathy among those who refuse to get informed, get involved and fight for what you or I believe is best for this nation.

The vast majority of Americans are decent people who are busy making livings and raising families. Too many people think it is a virtue to stay away from politics, which enables a vocal minority to trample over a silent majority.

We need to change that attitude. Whether we like it or not, politicians will determine our future. We preserved the republic for more than 200 years, but it seems we are destined to become a dictatorship if we don’t take control of the political process at the national level soon.

I don’t know about you, but I refuse to give up without fighting. Engage yourself, your family and friends and get a Republican elected in the 12th U.S. House District, and send U.S. Rep. John Barrow packing. We also need to elect a Republican senator from Georgia. If we can take the U.S. Senate in the 2014 election cycle, it will change the political landscape in Washington for the better.

Don’t give up. Our freedom and our children’s freedom is at risk.
