The 2008 presidential elections will make it painfully clear to the American people that we need a new declaration of independence. Indeed, with a dose of common sense, if we can simply analyze what has happened to our country, and why we have devolved into a self-destructive, superficial society of selfish interests and extremes, we will make some serious decisions about our future.
We must look beyond the relentless propaganda and deceit that got us into this desperate dilemma -- with our negligent tacit approval -- and let it be known that we're not going to take it anymore. If we don't, terrorism of every description will consume us, including being grossly misinformed by most of the news media, and the economy-busting mass hysteria of the green movement.
We need to declare independence from a highly partisan two-party system that has grown government into a tax-punishing three-headed monster. A monster that has ignored the limits of our Constitution, and blatantly abused the power of all three branches of government. A monster that has turned our nation from the land of the free and the home of the brave, into the land of freeloaders and regulators, and the home of socialist tyrannies.
For the truth about our history, read former secretary of education William J. Bennett's, "America the last best hope," volumes I and II. It's a far cry from the negatively manipulated history taught in our failing schools. For real solutions, read former speaker of the House Newt Gingrich's, "Winning the Future," and "Real Change." If we don't do something, we will certainly become a giant underclass of the oppressed, and our last best hope might very well be dashed into oblivion.
