Important words

HERE is one of Ronald Reagan’s Christmas messages while President of these United States.

If you can’t take the time to listen to it, it’s short but I know we’re all busy, this phrase stood out and I believe it’s so true:

“The world would never starve for wonders but only for the want of wonders.”  G. K. Chesterton.

I often write to liberals at other blogs that they’re taking the childhood from our children by demanding “truth” (liberal translation: any slightest thing WRONG that any great American ever did, or our country ever did)  be taught far too early in their development….Heroes are destroyed for some odd perception of ‘truth,’ people of weak character and immorality are championed to our kids.  If George Washington had one slave, nothing he did that was good counts.  If one Columbus sailor raped a woman, nothing Columbus did was good, right?  You know the drill….  my readers know how much I harp on how STUPID and DANGEROUS to our countryTHIS IS.

I thought the Chesterton quote says (much) better what I’ve been trying to say….we, even as adults, need wonders, we can’t have wonders be taken away from us…we have the gift of wonder and awe inherently built into us, but we’re almost prohibited from having them because of ‘reality’, ‘truth,’ negativity… We grew up with the wonders of America, proud to be born here, proud to stand up for the flag, knowing by heart the pledge, loving this country, living from birth the dream millions of immigrants wanted (they understood, liberals born here do not).   Our children, for the HUGE most part, do not have this anymore.  I actually truly believe that our country’s the first and only to teach patriotism out of our next generation.

I think that Chesterton quote is important, don’t you?  And how about that Reagan Christmas greeting?  IMAGINE any president saying that today???!!!

By the way, “MERRY CHRISTMAS!” is a wonder…..destroying that, removing mangers, etc., all has to lead to the end of children’s presents, Santa, reindeer stories, dancing snowmen…….we NEED these ‘wonders’… we literally need them.  Our kids sure do.

    I couldn’t pick any words from that as special. I liked them all. Yes, Ronald Reagan had speech writers but he injected his feelings before hand and after and rejected any words he didn’t commit to as his own.
    There was a message here that I heard that wasn’t obvious, one that he’d said before and that was suggested here also. “Freedom isn’t passed down through our blood lines. It must be protected and defended every minute of every day by all of us.”.

    My thought(s), EXACTLY! it appears that 34 years later [we] have become a nation adrift. Is a “wake-up” call at-hand or will we succumb to the autocratic, Godless path the, so called, “Progressives” portend? I guess that we will soon find out.

    To wish we could just stay the same, year after year, generation after generation, is futile.

    We just watched today. Mr. B said it best: powerful message. I loved the ‘faith and freedom’ part. You know, in Europe they didn’t do that either. Those that DID came HERE!

    I only hope our next President will occasionally be shown attending their church as most of our previous presidents did, like Reagan, the Bushes, etc. For a supposed Christian, you never see our current president attending since he was embarrassed into quitting Rev. Wright’s Church early on in his first term (“Not God Bless America. God Dammed America”). In reality, I feel he would be more comfortable bowing down, facing East toward Mecca with his butt high in the air!

    Hey Mal and others: Do you remember Bill Clinton (Slick Willy) being seen in the News Media carrying some sort of a >15 LB Bible when that incredible PHONY was on the “Hot Seat”? I do. Now, we must endure this $#!t again? Apparently, that serial RAPIST garners popularity. If so, just stick a fork in us, WE ARE DONE!!!!!!
