Our country is hemorrhaging from reckless spending, leaving the people in debt with the interest payments alone while the presses are busy printing more currency. Will the recently elected Republican House of Representatives follow our words or fall into the same old routine as its forerunners by neglecting those it represents to follow its own agenda? To those newly elected congressmen, listen to your hearts. We must restore honor and truth in this country before the candle of liberty is snuffed out.

We must not fail in recovering those values and principles once held with reverence and honor. Aren’t you tired of our elected representatives avoiding the truth? Will no one stand to defend this country, or are we sliding into oblivion?

I am so tired of the political correctness in this land. Just speak with truthful words and have a civil conversation instead of mocking one another. Other countries watch in horror as the greatest nation destroys itself from within. Yet we carry on with this death march to the final end, deceiving ourselves into thinking everything will be all right. Will this be the twilight’s last gleaming?
