I miss the old ways. I admit it. I am a traditionalist. Remember The old saying of " American as baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet"? No it is "as American as soccer, sushi, low fat yogurt and Toyota". Wow, it just does not sound the same. I miss the old ways.
What happened to us? I remember when it was being said that we were no longer an industrial nation, but an information nation. I remember when it was being said that were becoming a world wide economy instead of a national economy. Who the hell changed the rules,and who decided that we were not an industrial nation anymore? Who decided that we had to be part of a world wide conglomerate? I don't remember getting to vote on it. If I had my way, we would start building factories again, and become a self reliant nation.
I remember when people were self reliant instead of government reliant.You bought your own insurance, or had it provided by your employer. You saved money for retirement, and the banks had programs encouraging you to save. Now, go into a bank and all that you see is "spend, spend, spend."
I remember when the government did not try ot tell you if you could smoke or not, eat trans fat, or greasy hamburgers. I miss the old days when you , the citizen, could make the choice. What has happened to us? I miss the old days, and I want my country back. I don't like this new country, and I can't believe that the people have become so stupid as to endorse the new way.
Stand up. Take back the USA before it is gone. Gosh, I miss the old ways.
