Emery McClendon: America Has Come Full Circle, So What’s the Matter Now?

Emery McClendon

It’s 2019 in America. It’s been a long time since our Founding as a nation, and the planting of a system of government that offered  Freedom and Liberty as no other nation has seen before in human history.

America has gone through its ups and downs, but America always continued to stand strong in the world as a beacon of light and a refuge to those seeking a better life.

As a nation we have come full circle, but we somehow find ourselves asking the question, what’s the matter now?
What happened to the spirit of America, that was engraved in each of our hearts, and the desire to carry the torch that our Founders lit and asked future generations to continue to carry?

They formed a new nation based on individual liberty and the desire for each of us to succeed by holding ourselves accountable. They wanted us to make this nation stronger and greater with the passing of each generation.
As we now evaluate our progress, we find ourselves divided, and being lead by people who have no desire to see our nation obtain greater heights.

We now find ourselves at risk from a greater internal threat than from without. In general, we cannot trust our own government, or those whom we elect to represent us. A recent example of this is a group of Freshmen in our U.S.Congress known as the Squad.
Some of our elected officials, at every level of government are at odds with our United States Constitution, and our Founding Principles. They think that they can lead us down a better and more secure path through a system of government that has failed everywhere that it has been tried. I speak of Progressive Socialism, which is in reality Communism lite.
How is it that we seem to have lost our way? Do Americans really value Freedom and Liberty, or do they really prefer dependence on the government?  Have we become lazy and willing to turn over every aspect of our lives to a overreaching and out of control tyrannical system or leaders?
Again we must ask ourselves a question: What’s the matter now?
It didn’t happen overnight, and we didn’t suddenly say that we surrender to protectionism.  We have been conditioned over time to accept failure.
Don’t get me wrong here because America is still the home of many who love our Republic, and those who are willing to take a stand to make sure that we will continue as the greatest nation on earth.
However, those numbers are shrinking fast.
There is light at the end of the tunnel that gives us the opportunity to resecure the American Dream, but we must be the ones to keep that light shining bright.
We must change hearts and minds, and renew the spirit of liberty to survive.
It won’t, and can’t happen naturally.  We must get back to the Godly principles that drove the Founders to action. They left us with a legacy that we must continue to cherish, and promote.
We have become apathetic and lack willingness to stand up against evil, and those who wish to effect negative change upon us. They have lost throughout the centuries of our history, and they must continue to lose now.
Those of us who love Freedom and Liberty are here for you, and we are excited about the future. We can win the struggle to keep our nation strong and on track for our posterity.
What’s the matter now? Nothing that can’t be fixed by you and me!
“Freedom & Liberty/USE Them Or LOSE Them.”
