America needs some tough love
America faces serious challenges, but has an un-serious culture. And the heart of the problem is that few of the “grownups” – the people in charge, the ones who have traditionally spoken the tough truths – are willing to do anything other than simply tell people what they want to hear.
Politicians are no use – they just want to pander for votes. Most of the media is just an extension of the Democratic party, and many of the rest are afraid to challenge their audience, lest they lose viewers/readers/listeners.
This leaves us with a stultified national dialogue. A country that can’t even discuss its real problems.
So it’s up to us “regular folk” to step up and force that conversation. This site is a humble attempt to contribute to this effort.
It is based upon three premises:
1) Our leaders have failed us. It’s up to us to help ourselves, and each other.
2) Hard work, education, individual liberty, and a belief in something larger than yourself is the best recipe to fix what ails America.
3) A strong, prosperous and free America is the best hope for those suffering around the world.
Remember: if someone is telling you only things you want to hear, he or she is not playing straight with you.
Now let’s get started.
