Why Am I Doing This?

June 10, 2011   |  

You know sometimes I think to myself: why am I doing this. I feel so literally powerless, trying to stop this wave of socialism from overwhelming this country. I know that many of you feel the same way: we organize, we talk, we protest, we come out for Tea Party rallies, we call/email/fax our elected officials, we push and push and push. All we are trying to do is to move this country back to the founding principals which made it the amazing, unique country that it was. How someone showing up on our shores with nothing in his pockets could, with hard work and perseverance, create something out of nothing. A final place in the world where opportunities to grow and improve are abundant, where you are free to succeed spectacularly or fail miserably, only to pick yourself up and try again. America is the land of innovation, of the future, of opportunity. Or at least it was, before our elected officials wanted to drag us down into the same socialist mud every other country in the world is mired in. I do this, because I want to stop that.

This week, all three of my boys, 17, 14 and 11 graduated from their respective schools, high, middle and elementary. I’m very proud of all of them. They have all done well, and when I look at them, I see our future. I want to leave the country that we are leaving for them to grow and flourish in in better shape than it was when I came here.. And this is why I blog, podcast and video. If I can even help one person become an activist for free speech and free markets, and they can move someone to turn this ship away from the failed socialist policies of other countries, well then I have succeeded.

This ship has been heading towards the rocks for so long that the captains have forgotten the original route. It is up to us to remind them, and help them to steer it clear, back to our founders vision. That is our job, it is our calling. This is still the best country in the world, let’s work to make it even better.
