To the Editor,

Andrew Kingsley hit the nail on the head. It was refreshing to read someone saying it like it is. “We the people” as the preamble states, have been lulled into complacency. The thought of standing for something has been made to look unnecessary. When we think of the “what if’s,” it’s also a bit scary. Something as simple as a campaign sign in our yard shouldn’t be a big deal. But…we found one sign bent up and strewn on the lawn. The other two signs were undamaged so it wasn’t the weather. We fixed it and put it back up. This morning that sign and another were missing. We have heard about incidences of people’s properties being vandalized due to the use of campaign signs. The debate? Do we put them back up and chance damage to our property or do we play it safe and let someone else fight the fight? It makes me wonder, are we as a people ready to do what it takes to get this country back in shape or are we content to let others pay the price? This country was formed and founded on the right to worship God and live in freedom. A lot of people sacrificed a great deal, even their lives for those rights. There are plenty of other countries that do not live by God’s teachings and just as many that are socialistic, taking from those who work and redistributing it to support their social programs. Is it so wrong that we keep this nation available for those who want to live God’s laws and for those who want to provide for themselves in a free economy? I say keep this nation what it was formed to be – “One nation under GOD indivisible with liberty and justice for all”.
