When I was growing up my friends and I were in the Cub Scouts, and then the Boy Scouts.  Every Memorial Day we marched in our small town’s parade.  There were thousands in the parade, darn near ½ the town, with the other half lined up along the roads to watch.  The American Legion, VFW, Army and Navy Reservists, Police and Fire Departments, the High School Band and many other organizations were in the parade, along with our local politicians, religious leaders and their families.  Everyone was proud to be American, and all knew we were the greatest country on earth!

After High School I joined the Naval Reserve, and was on active duty from 1970 to 1975.  Interesting to note that back then religion was very important, and now it is not. When I got out, I attended Naval Reserve meetings 1 weekend per month, and went on 2 weeks active duty every year.  We also marched in the Cincinnati Memorial Day Parade with other reservists.  The Marines, ourselves, Army, and Air Force reservists were in these parades in our dress uniforms, along with High School bands and just about every social organization in the city.  Many people, thousands upon thousands would line the streets of downtown Cincinnati to watch the parade.  It was a great show of Americanism, and we all were proud to be a part of it!

Small towns outside of Cincinnati still do these parades, but Cincinnati no longer does.  Few big cities do anymore.  Except for small towns and cities in our country, the Memorial Day Parade is a thing of the past, a dinosaur in a fast-changing America.  In the bigger cities, and some small ones too, pride of country does not seem to exist anymore.  What happened?

80% of younger Americans are not physically or mentally fit to serve in the armed forces today.  Critical Race Theory is now part of the mission in our armed forces, and many that can join no longer will as the military goes woke.  Our schools have been teaching students that America is nothing to be proud of, and that we stole our land, killed many to take it, and have been fighting colonial wars all over the planet throughout our history.  All largely a lie, but a narrative to fundamentally change us by education our young people in this manner.

We now have a 2-tiered justice system, where Conservatives are treated differently from Progressives.  We have a weaponized DOJ, CIA, FBI and all the other alphabet soup agencies in our Federal Government.  Socialism is now being presented as a better alternative to Capitalism (Even though it has failed everywhere it has been tried), and our Constitution is being trashed.  Almost 50% of Gen-Z young adults think Socialism is good, free speech is not a good thing, and that the second amendment of the Constitution should be overturned.  Further, Progressives want the Constitution to be a “living document” that they can change at will.  We are now in a world of hurt, and the America I grew up in no longer exists. 

It will be a long struggle to get sanity back into our country.  We need to take back government, get rid of unneeded agencies, rebuild ones that are needed but have gone rogue.  We also must get rid of RINO’s and Progressives in our elected offices, and elect people who have the desire to bring back what we have lost.  This will not be done overnight, but 2024 is a bellwether year that can bring some positive change to our failing system.  Take voting seriously and research all candidates on your ballot.  Only vote for those that respect our country and its values, and will uphold the Constitution as written.  We can get positive change started, and then we must hold our representatives to the promises that they will have given us. Or we can just sit back and let the Progressives and RINO’s win.  It’s your choice!



The Liberal Progressive playbook has been applied time and again to destroy societies across
the world. The pattern is nearly the same in every instance.

  1. Promote discontent in the economically disadvantaged classes
  2. Expand the numbers of disadvantaged within the society by redefining “the
    disadvantaged” or importing large numbers of disadvantaged individuals
  3. Expand the role of government from governance to provision of “equality”
  4. Provide “free” services to both the deserving and the undeserving to buy votes and at the
    same time destroy the economic viability of the society
  5. Falsely promise “true equality” to encourage the sacrifice of personal freedom and the
    enhancement of the power of government
  6. Gain control of the education system and propagandize younger generations
  7. Use mass media (willingly or through force) to promote their propaganda
  8. Attack the underpinnings of the free society – law and order, freedom of speech,
    economic freedom, religious freedom, the right to bear arms
  9. Disarm the populace
  10. Rescind constitutional rights or declare martial law, giving an elite few total control of the
  11. Eradicate all dissidents
  12. Enslave the entire population for the benefit of a few
    It only took one generation for the Socialists to transform Venezuela from a Democracy to a

    The Liberal Progressives have been working for well over 50 years to transform the United
    States. They are no longer working in the dark, they are openly declaring their intentions to rob
    you and future generations of your freedom. Their recent actions demonstrate clearly that they
    feel the United States is ready for transition. Their willingness to challenge law and order, use
    our intelligence agencies to spy on private citizens,, attempt to illegally impeach a duly elected
    president and to openly encourage the mass migration of millions of illegal aliens are all bold
    signs of their intentions.
    Only one question remains, will you wake-up in time to stop them?
