Soon 51 percent of the country will decide not to work and take entitlements, which place a hardship on the good, hard-working 49 percent of Americans who have to support the ones that decide not to work; that is a democracy. Jobs are plentiful; the problem centers on people not wanting to work them. As long as you pay people not to work for votes, people will not work. At some point a democracy will commit suicide.
Sadly it will take most of us down when it fails. Our last line of defense is our county sheriffs and police across the United States. When taking the oath of office, they swear to protect the Constitution of the United States. I hope they remember that when trying to arrest peaceful demonstrators of this president.

In September of last year, before my husband and I learned of the impending installation of industrial wind turbines, my husband was diagnosed with cancer. Believe me, when you hear that word your entire world is turned upside down. Sadly, we had to have the conversation no couple ever wants to have. That of what will I do if he doesn’t survive.
Having worked hard and staying within our means for 30 years, we knew we were close to paying off the house, so I would be safe and sound in my own home without the fear of where I’ll go. I knew that gave me the security I would need until I would have to make the decision of how long to stay in my home.
