The miracle nation on a path of destruction

  1. 1. Until recently, I considered myself a good citizen because I worked hard, paid<br />my taxes, devoted myself to raising my family, voted in all national elections<br />and most local elections and expressed my patriotism on national holidays. <br />About a year ago, I sensed that we were starting to experience more than <br />the normal ups and downs that America had gone through and that I needed<br />to do more.<br />As a result, I started reading about America’s founding history and tried to<br />understand what has and is going on in our more current history.<br />Although, I come from a period of time that the history of America’s <br />founding was readily taught in school, as I re-read the founding history<br />some 50 plus years later, I was awe struck by what I realized from my studies.<br />I realized that this is truly a “Miracle Nation”. A “Miracle Nation” that can <br />never be recreated.<br />As I read about more current history, I was horrified when I came to the <br />realization that our “Miracle Nation” is on what I believe is a “path of <br />destruction”.<br />A “path of destruction” that will deprive most of us, our children, our grand-<br />children and those beyond of the freedoms, liberties and opportunities so <br />many Americans have been so fortunate to have experienced.<br />As a result, I want to make others aware of why I think this is a “Miracle <br />Nation” and why I think it is on a “path of destruction”, in the hopes that many <br />more Americans will get involved in helping knock America off the “path of <br />destruction” I believe it is on.<br />.<br />
  2. 2. We can not and must not leave the preservation of our “Miracle Nation” to<br />the politicians.<br />The presentation that follows will intersperse three elements that I believe<br />have made America a “Miracle Nation”, with the two elements that I believe<br />have put America on the “path of destruction” it is on.<br />I am not a professional presenter, do not have an actors voice and I’m self-<br />taught in making the displays that you will see, so please view my <br />presentation for its content, not its artistic merits. <br />My motivation for trying to help knock America off the “path of destruction” <br />I believe it is on is my gratitude for those that have made the ultimate <br />sacrifice (picture of soldiers) so that I could live in this great country and <br />(picture of family). I hope you can come to a similar motivation.<br />Element Number One of the “Miracle Nation” – (breadth, beauty, etc. of land)<br />Element Number One of the “path of destruction” – (“politicians”<br />“irresponsible actions” and “abuse of power”)<br />Element Number Two of the “Miracle Nation” – (America’s exceptionalism)<br />Element Number Two of the “path of destruction” – (our “enjoyment of<br />plenty”, putting us on a “path of destruction” because we have left the<br />“politicians” to their “irresponsible actions” and “abuses of power”<br />Element Number Three of the “Miracle Nation” – (seven miracles involved<br />in the formation of America)<br />.<br />
  3. 3. “Miracle Nation” Element I<br />The Breadth, Diversity, Resources, <br />Beauty Of America’sLands<br />.<br />
  4. 4. “Government [“politicians”] is not reason, it is not <br />eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant <br />and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be <br />left toirresponsible actions.”<br />“Path of Destruction” Element I<br />“Politicians” “irresponsible actions” and <br />“abuses of power”<br />George Washington<br />“Occupants of public offices [“politicians”] love <br />power and are prone to abuse it [power].” <br /> 1980 1990 2000 2020 2030 2040 2050 2060 2070 2080<br />.<br />
  5. 5. For brevity, the “politicians” “irresponsible actions” and “abuses of power”<br />will generally be presented with a graph overlaid by a summary statement <br />of the charts content without giving you the time to study the graph. <br />It will be difficult to fully comprehend every chart, but you should come away <br />understanding how “irresponsible” our “politicians” have been and how <br />they have “abused power”.<br />.<br />
