Memorial Day Apathy

It was once said that all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. On this Memorial Day, perhaps it’s a good time to think about that for a moment.

The eco-loonies, the liberals, and the moonbats all get me ticked off, but you know who REALLY get me mad? The Apathetic Conservatives. You know who I mean. They’re the ones who are the most vocal when speaking amongst themselves. It doesn’t seem to matter if it’s sportsmen’s rights, property rights, taxation, whatever. They will loudly proclaim exactly what needs to be done.

When it actually comes to taking action, however, their litany of lame excuses is incredible. When support is needed at a public meeting, even if you BEG them, they won’t show up. Petitions need to be distributed? Letters to editors or legislators written? Faxs and emails sent? These people disappear completely. The wonderful phrase “All hat, no cattle” describes them perfectly.

As so many folks have said, “Freedom isn’t free”. Freedom isn’t won and retained just by our military. When an action to take away our freedom arises that needs to be opposed, don’t sit on your butt and figure someone else will stop it.

Get involved. Find out who is leading the effort and help them out. Sure, there are other things we would all rather do than get involved in a bunch of political crap. I hate it too, we all do.

A lot of good men and women fought and died to secure our freedom. Don’t let their efforts be in vain due to your personal apathy.

Always remember, it’s a whole lot easier to retain the freedoms we have, than to get them back after they've been lost………
