On this Thanksgiving day, I’m thankful that I live in a nation where I’m free. Where we aren’t living under the oppression of a ruling political elite who make one law for us, and another for themselves. Where they don’t waste our hard earned taxes to keep themselves in power and use them for political payoffs to their corrupt cronies. Where our politicians don’t use the tools of power for political oppression and to deny us our freedoms and to take our private property and to force us to violate our conscience with their intrusive regulations. I’m thankful I live in a country that is free from election fraud and I can have confidence that my vote isn’t diluted by illegally cast votes. I’m thankful that I live in a country that is a nation of laws, bound and constrained by our Constitution that is esteemed and respected and upheld by all those who take an oath when they take office. And most of all, I’m thankful that I live in a nation where we don’t steal from our children and grandchildren, making economic slaves of them all to an ever increasing, out of control and failing economic system of endless debt and deficits.
I’m thankful that one day, if we all work together, all of that will be true again.
