Letter: Standing for something or falling for anything


The Eagle-Tribune

---- — To the editor:

Most people would agree that if you do not stand for something, then you will fall for anything. The current thinking among those of the liberal bent and philosophy teaches that we can do what we want as long as it feels right and good, regardless of whether it hurts people and society as a whole.

This trend among many is to foster a society that has no regard for the consequences of huge government debt, support for illegal aliens, disdain for the unborn, disregard for freedom of religion, even your right to stand your ground to protect your family. Liberally, they support smoking, excessive drinking, unchecked welfare, even texting while driving, and taxation without representation, which can all lead to morally corrupt expensive disasters for a civil society.

It seems that the present Obama administration just says, “Just move along. There is nothing to see here.” Yet, we know they continue to have scandal after scandal: FBI, IRS, Fast and Furious, gun smuggling, just to name a few. We Americans want an honest government. Not a destructive, less credible government like the one we have!

I believe that if a person feels the need to engage in these activities, under the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, the laws need to be enforced and made stronger to protect the innocent people who are being harmed by extreme policies of liberalism.

We see every day this liberal way of life slowly destroying America, by undermining the fabric of a sound society. Unless we turn back to believe in “One nation under God,” then we, as a nation, will continue to be under attack by terrorism and forces of progressive evil founded by liberalism.
