The Census Bureau says we “senior citizens” have lots of money: Let’s use it to elect someone honest.
[Young whipper-snappers] like to refer to us as old fogies, geezers or dinosaurs. We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that must be taken into consideration.
In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were. We remember telephone party-lines. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.
We are considered out-dated. But we won World War II, and fought in Korea and Viet Nam. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America: We fought for the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave” . We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance. We know the words to America, The Star Spangled Banner and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read in history books and we feel no obligation to
apologize to anyone for America.
Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to
destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.
It was mostly the young who elected Obama and [his toadies in] Congress. You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality was nothing but “Hype and Lies.” This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for [lying politicians’ slogans].
You tasted socialism and saw evil face to face, and found you don’t like it after all. Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it. Lost jobs, foreclosed mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom.
Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2014 we are going to take back our nation, and you will help us. We drive slowly but in 2014 we’re going to the polls by the millions.
This land belongs to “We the People” and we plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren.
