Spending time over the last two years in both Boston and Virginia learning about the revolutionary war and incidiary environment which bred the realization that there could be a better world.
Saw statistics today that less than 30% of our United States of America have faith in their government, less than 15% have faith in their president, less than 5% have faith in their Congress.
Close to 70% do not believe our government has our best interest at heart and close to as many are disillusioned by the corrupt self-serving nature of our government (what we call special interest groups and lobbying).
I don’t have the details available to review the validity of the methods used to gather these stastics, but it speaks to what I hear in society from both the left and the right.
What would the founding fathers think and say? How do we fix what is so obviously, terribly broken?
Saw this floating around on Facebook today which gave me pause to contemplate this post.
It is not July 4th we are celebrating, it is independence day – yet tyranny and oppression come in many forms.
