Are you ready to sacrifice to save freedom???

The solution to the budget troubles of the United States will not come from tax hikes as some in Washington would have it, the solution will only come when Washington decides to manage it's budget the way we do in our homes.  The government must wise up and become frugal.

Likewise -- and I'm going to get a lot of slack for saying this, yet I'm going to say it anyway because someone has to -- all Americans are going to have to give up money to save the nation.  That includes YOU and ME too.

Allow me to put the solution in the form of questions:
  1. Would you be willing to give up your pension to save the nation?
  2. Would you be willing to give up your social security to save the nation?
  3. Would you be willing to give you your health care to save the nation?
  4. Would you be willing to give up your Medicare to save the nation?
  5. Would you be willing to give up your Medicaid to save the nation?
  6. Would you be willing to give up free public schooling to save freedom?
I know you need it, yet that's not the point.  The point is would you be willing to sacrifice to save freedom?

Personally, my wife and I have already begun to prepare for our retirement assuming we will not be getting social security, at least not when we're 62 or even 65.  If we receive a check it will be a bonus.

The question is, are YOU ready to give up something?  Or are you going to throw a fit and fight to the death for money that we as a nation have to borrow and risk bankruptcy for?  Are you willing to go the route of France and  riot in the streets?  Or are you ready to sacrifice for your nation?  

No one is asking you to sacrifice your life like the revolutionaries had to do.  What we are asking is that you sacrifice money to save your freedom.  That's what's at risk here:  freedom.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free -- Ronald Reagan
