From “Hope & Change” to “Fear, Envy & Hate”

There is a sweet wind blowing throughout the United States.  With this breeze we will sweep the foul stench of tyranny and “real” oppression from the shining star upon the hill, known as “America”.  If we persevere to bring about the “real” change that American’s hope for, what will that look like?  Will it be a chicken in every pot because the government gives it to us?  Or, will it be a chicken, or pork, or beef, or fish, or vegetable of our choosing, because we have regained the ability to provide it for ourselves?

I choose the latter of these scenarios and if the writings of Gerald Molen can help to inspire and strengthen the sweet smell of “freedom”, then let’er rip, snort and gale across this great land of ours.

As a local folk singer so succinctly put it: “This land is your land.  This land is my land.  From California to the New York Islands.  From the Redwood Forests to the Gulf Stream Waters.  This land was made for You and Me!” ~ Woodie Guthrie 1945

Please enjoy this little ballad and the article I’ve posted below for those of us who want to bring the “Hope and Change” that America so desperately needs to restore us to the Foundations of it’s greatness.

Gerald R. Molen is an Oscar-winning film producer whose credits include "Rain Man," "Minority Report," "Twister," "Schindler's List" and "Jurassic Park."

My fellow patriots,

As we sit in our comfort-laden abodes, sipping our lattes or pink lemonades and either wishing the snow would be gone for another year or baseball season would start so there was something interesting to do, the world continues to move forward. But as we seek other interests, we are not listening to the sounds emanating from the world around us. If you would listen carefully you would recognize the woeful sounds of America gasping for its very breath of life and its inner soul.

Yes, the sounds are there. We just don't listen. We only hear (or see) what we want. As the country gasps for clarity of purpose, we the people figure someone or something else will come along and fix the problems for us. I don't think so. The warning signs have been there for a long time. A very long time. It is my humble opinion that, during these turbulent times, we find ourselves in the dilemma of our lifetimes. As a country we have been either asleep or just too comfortable in our own cocoons to realize the depth of our plight.

An event took place in 2008 that changed the world we live in. It changed the face of America, it changed the direction of our moral values, it changed how we view the future and how we see ourselves as human beings and it changed the make up of our basic freedoms that we so irreverently tossed aside for entitlement freebies and empty promises by the engineers at the helm.
