"If we concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles"

By Junius P. Long

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion ... Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book, but you don't have to show ID for the right to vote on who runs the government ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If, in the largest city of the country, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because the government says a 24-ounce sugary drink might make you fat ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hi-jab is only subject to having her neck and head searched because of her religion ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher’s "cute," but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If hard work and success is rewarded with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If the government's plan for getting people back to work is to reward them with 99 weeks of unemployment checks with no requirement to prove they applied for it ....Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more "safe" according to the government ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If you are offended by this article, then I'll bet you voted for the idiots who are running and "ruining" our great country!

Our world is changing, I have found I cant think about it day to day, i found myself walking around in a deep Funk. Hopefully things will change. I fear too much damage has been done. The country we knew as younger men may never return.Very Sad

We can save things, but we have to stand up as we did when we joined the service. I would wager, if we could get every living veteran and all of those serving both on active duty and the reserves, we would have an immense voters block that could sway any election.

Both parties are corrupt as they only focus on me, me, me instead of "We the People". The focus should not be along party line but the indepth vetting of the candidates whose actions provide our ability to ensure we are getting the best candidates are elected.

While I have my own list of what a candidate should be moving toward restoring our country.
