I have 16 trillion reasons to be sad this morning, a measly two such being my sons and their children. They will be spending the rest of their lives paying for bloated government and unproductive citizens; the few were never meant to support the many.
One of my favorite Sci Fi authors is Robert Heinlein. In his book FARNHAM’S FREEHOLD a family with a bomb shelter is blasted into the future by a ground zero nuclear missile strike. When they emerge from their shelter, the seven or so people discover a world that is almost the exact opposite of the 1960’s Cold War world they left.
The Farnhams were left to deal with a world not of their choosing. I can relate: Colorado has legalized marijuana–Maryland gay marriage. This is not the world with which I am familiar and all that I am left with are fond memories; when morality ruled the day and our country had a united vision.
