ANALYSIS/OPINION:

America was meant to be a melting pot for all to live as individuals, free from the reach of tyranny. Somewhere along the way, we forgot the importance of being free men and thinking as individuals. Now, we face our biggest challenge - to stand tall in the face of adversity from our own elected representatives and defend our constitutional rights as Americans. Our voices are drowned out by their ambiguous speeches advocating a way of life we do not want. It turns my stomach for the sheer ignorance they exhibit of our Founding Fathers’ words.

Our children are not being taught the past and what made us unique. They must comprehend each chapter of our history to see a future for all men to live free as individuals and not be led by the nose like cattle to be fed and sheltered. If we let others dictate how we live and die, we may as well give up now. We must lay a foundation with virtue, honesty, freedom, courage, liberty for all and the belief in God. Shall we surrender, or stand fast in defending this great republic from those that would harm it?
