I did not write this but I could have because it describes my life and my feelings as a senior citizen patriot.
I’ve worked hard all my life, most times I put in 45-60+ hours a week. I sacrificed being away from my family for days, and sometimes weeks at a time, to provide for them! I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. I juggled being a father, a husband, a grandfather, a teacher, a bus driver, a business owner, a community servant, an elected official, a friend, and an employee. It wasn’t always easy. I'm no saint, but I DID IT, and I made sacrifices to do it. Sometimes I missed my wife’s, children’s, and grandchildren’s birthdays, school functions, or being able to spend holidays with them! I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic, sometimes to people that have sacrificed nothing.
I'm tired of being told that the government will take the money that I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people that are too lazy to work!
I'm tired of being told that I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which I am not allowed to debate.
I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers, and politicians of all parties, talk like their opinions really matter to the common person.
I’m tired of any of these people even pretending that they can relate to my life and circumstances!
I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, whether they are rich, OR poor.
I’m upset that I’m labeled as a racist because I am proud of law enforcement and believe in border security!
I’m tired of being told that I need to accept the latest fad, or politically correct stupidity, of befriending a group that is intent on killing me, because I won’t convert to their religion, or their laws.
I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions, especially the ones that want me to fund it.
I'm tired of hearing them blame their problems on discrimination, or the government.
I’m also tired of hearing that, because I believe in putting America First, that I’m a racist.
I’m tired of hearing that if I believe in Legal Immigration of Immigrants, that I’m cruel, bigoted, insensitive, uncaring, racist and an elitist, just to name a few.
Yes, I'm really tired.
But, I'm also glad to be in the fourth quarter of my life.
Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world that these people are creating.
I am thankful that I'm on the way out, and not on the way in.
I just hate knowing that my children and grandchildren will have to face this screwed up world, which can only be redeemed by putting God back in our homes, schools, and country!!!!!
