Recently finished a study of John Adams, second president of the United States. President Adams was a great man and patriot, a catalyst for change and one of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence.
The signers (patriots, colony representatives) took office to create a republic for all colonist regardless of risk of imprisonment, bankruptcy, or death. Thirty out of 56 signers “paid the price” with death and personal tragedies.
Every four years we elect a president, every two years, senators and representatives to Congress with the purpose follow the “will” of the people they represent. This fall we have an election and maybe, just maybe we should ask candidates “the price they are willing to pay” to represent us in Congress.
Our republic needs candidates who promote change, possess courage, and willing to be patriots and willing to risk everything for the county.
Personally I believe that most 50+ aged citizens are not willing or capable to vote for change much less demand patriots run for an office and expect a commitment to “pay the price” maybe there are no patriots left willing to make the sacrifice is that it? As for me I am placing my hope on millennials to fix up the mess Baby Boomer + groups created and stubbornly unwilling to change. Our hope relies on supporting the millennials to save us from our demise. Seek out and encourage younger generations to become the patriots we so desperately need to lead this great country now, not later.
