Default Things that keep my hope alive America will Rise up again!

OK, I'm often posting about things that piss me off and make me wonder if we have a future as a nation. Today Im going to talk about a couple things that make me happy and more positive that we will again be the best at being the free nation we are!

I hit 20 years working in a Liberal Arts University in upstate NY so Im plastered by BS liberalism 7.5 hours a day, 5 days a week. If you absorb that all day long you might think that is the way of the world, get used to it! Ive seen a couple/ few resident Liberals convert their way of thinking in the last few years.

Two are close friends, one early 30's, the other late 50's, both have substantially modified their beliefs and are denouncing many of their prior liberated ways and embracing the concept of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness with the addition of the 2nd amendment to their devotions.

Jimmy (Old guy like me) was a lifetime Democrat from NYC that has lived upstate for the last 35 years. Before 9/11, he had no personal use for firearms but realized if the Gov couldnt/ wouldnt live up to its responsibility to keep us safe after disarming us then it was up to him to do it himself. He went from zero to 50 guns in less than 10 years and now knows more about them than I do. He's a different man today than when I showed him how to field strip his new AR a few years ago and his wife is now a lethal shooter as well!

Mikey is a young man that was under the impression that he and his family were safe and had no need for any posture other than those described by The Dave Mathews Band. His eyes have become very open in the last couple years. He just had his first Baby and while on Family leave went to an outdoor show, bought a raffle ticket for a shotgun and won it! He took his safety course, picked up the gun and early this week I took him out in the back yard and we blasted it about 20 times. First time he ever shot a weapon and Ive never seen a bigger smile than him plastering the targets I set up. He just bought an old Ithaca double barrel last week, from zero to 2 in 3 weeks is pretty good.

Honestly, I really dont know any Conservatives that have changed course on their political views but I do see Liberals changing as they realize more government has turned out to be less rights and innocent dead folks have come of it!

A few million new Firearm owners this year alone does tell a story that Hope is Alive and well and living in the USA! Tell your Liberal Convert Story here and let folks see that Barry Oh and Shotgun Joe have done more to hurt their causes than help!

Now if they reform socially and and economically as well, there can be true hope. Armed communists don't comfort me.

I think it's the unspoken hope that a such a radical change in this area of their life will cause them to re-evaluate and change in others. Most changes such as this do not happen in a vacuum.

I believe we may be able to come back to some form of greatness, but it won't come without some sort of sacrifice. The biggest question is WHEN will the change come, in time to not suffer the greatest indignities, or are we going to have to hit bottom in a complete collapse before those driving us to ruin change their convictions?

I heard on the radio that, when Obama took office, America's economy was 50% larger than China. As of last month, China has almost caught up, and should surpass us this year. If they do, the World could decide to use China's currency as the Universal Currency, taking the honor away from the U.S. If that happens, we can no longer print money with impunity and economists think we could become a Third World economy overnight. Things like this seem not to bother our current administration as they spend like drunken monkeys and ignore foreign policy. What is the answer and where will it end?

Ive seen what your saying it in both my subjects. They are hard working nation and family loving guys. The promises they got early in life finally were tested and neither is stupid enough to continue to follow a path that isnt safe.

I think most folks generally start out an awful lot more liberal than they end up anyways (Myself included). I was born a rural rat, lots of hunting fishing, trapping, booze and drugs. I chopped off 2' of hair in 1980 2 days before I entered the US Army as a College Dropout that couldnt think about passing a Piss test back then. 35 years later, I dont even recognize that guy. There were allot of bumps and broken bones over those years.

Im mostly proud to be an American first and generally leave the other markers off (Lib or Conservative). Hell, I still think Im the most Liberal Conservative you will ever meet but in the end, God and The Constitution will be my ultimate guides!

Web, I am glad you feel that way and I hope you are right. I give you credit for those 7 1/2hrs a day as I am sure I could not do it. my thoughts about liberals I will not repeat here, a big amount of them are the cause of the crap that goes on in this country.

Tekgreg has a very stong and I think correct assessment of what china is doing and with the fall of our currency that is so much a great possibility and a Damn shame for this country.


America better wake the Hell up!

I wish I could be as optimistic. I taught my Leftist Ex-hippie sister-in-law to shoot a .22 and she loved it, couldn't stop talking about what fun it was. But she's still a commie.

The demographics of the country have changed, we've been infected with this Euro-socialist world-without-borders crap...I think it'd take a major shockwave to re-ignite common sense.

You and I regard the Constitution for what it is, a brilliant and sacred document. The hard-core liberals regard it as an old piece paper that needs to be chucked out and re-written.

This does not bother the current administration, the Media and over half the country.

Obama was selected to do exactly what he is doing, destroy the US Economy. This is not a result or an unintended consequence of his politics, it is THE agenda. He is intentionally destroying the Economy at the same time gutting the US Military taking away out ability to defend ourselves as a Nation when everything collapses.

The only real obstacle the Socialists have is the Second Amendment. Not that it will stop them from destroying the economy and the Country, but it will slow them down when they try and destroy and control the people.
