Are we still the greatest?

Why the Rise of Discontent

Why Make America Great Again is resonating with so many. There is a high level of discontent across the land. America is fast losing the edge it once had in leading the free world. Here are a few

1.    While other nations are rising America is in stagnation.
We are no longer the hungry nation we once were. Readership in America is at an all-time low. America went from a top educator to a top trainer. A top education system is rooted the right values only found in a classical and not a liberal education system.

2.    The forces of decline are at work.
The right long term solutions are at the mercy of what is urgent and convenient. The something for nothing club keeps growing demanding perks from a system that can no longer provide. We must deliberately attack the status quo if we are to make any progress.

3.    The education system is ineffective.
Just study the map. Where is the nation of dreamers? You can go to the best schools in the nation and ask any teenager – what is your dream? The predominant answer will not surprise you – a profession. Our profession now defines who we are. We were all created to be more than what we do for a living.

4.    People are being held in bondage by debt.
The Financial Matrix is at work 24 hours a day. Those in power dictate the terms at will. The financial system is rigged in favor of those in power. Debt is the modern form of slavery. People are lured into debt without realizing the long term consequences of financing a standard of living that is borrowed, and not earned.

5.    Division has taken over the land.
America is falling from within. The rate has only accelerated in the last decade. While we are being distracted and entertained by the media, other nations are eating our lunch. If we don’t wake up, soon will be the breakfast and the dinner too.

6.    Freedom is in a rapid rate of decline.
Little by little our freedoms are being taken away by the government ability to tax and spend without the consent of the governed. No wonder people are behind an unconventional cowboy leader, an outsider. Remember at one point we were a nation of cowboys. If we don’t learn from history, history has a way to come and take a bite out of us!

7.      The Leadership Void is present everywhere we look.
Where have all the leaders gone? Are they all dead or on vacation? Our leaders are a reflection of who we are. We the people, have the responsibility to respond and put America at the top again.

Each one of us can and must do something to Make America Great Again!
