"Americas going to do it again". What a great song by Charlie Daniels. It resonates from another day when our enemies -as well as the usual crowd on the left- had written America off and were convinced we had seen our best day's. It was a time much like now.
The economy was bad, the Soviet Union appeared invincible, and many were sure they would start a war to destroy us. We were fractured and torn by the aftermath of Watergate and the Vietnam War.But then something happened that changed the course of our history: the Iran hostage crisis. America came together in a new surge of patriotism. Ronald Reagan ran for President and tapped into this new surge of national unity,and, eventually became president.
Today we have a somewhat similar situation. Many on the left have said -once again- that our best days are behind us and we are going to have to accept a lower standard of living. Add to that the fact that the Democrats in the last election misread the will of the people and thought that conservatism is dead. James Carville even said that the Democrats would rule politics for the next sixty years.
Alas now as then the nay sayers are wrong. America has reawakened, the people are coming together, and it may well be that we are witnessing a resurgence of conservatism. I have really been buoyed by the recent republican and conservative victories in what are very very blue states.
This is a time ripe for a person with the vision for, and faith in., this country similar to that of Ronald Reagan. I believe that just as in the previous times of trial this nation will rise to the occasion. We will stand as one against those who would ridicule and mislead this nation. We will stand as one against the naysayers, our enemies, and a government that has gotten a bit arrogant. And just as we did then America will do it again!
