It is a shame to see our elected officials be so completely out of touch with what the American people need. It’s not a hiking trail. It’s not an electric car and a carbon credit. It’s safe, affordable, and nutritious food. It’s access to clean water. It’s heat for the winter months. It’s safeguarding the economy to ensure Americans don’t need second, third, and fourth streams of income just to make ends meet. It’s encouraging home ownership, and savings, and the ability to accumulate wealth over time, faster than the rate of inflation. It’s nurturing the nuclear family, and promoting a sound educational system that guides our children in the way we should go.
At every turn, it appears we are on the wrong path, and it’s disheartening to say the least. However, as for me and my family, we will continue to work hard, save our pennies, raise our kids to know and love God, serve our community, love our neighbors, and stick together through the ups and downs that life brings. Maybe if enough of us do exactly that, society and our elected officials will follow suit.
