War! What is it good for?...

Let me tell you a story about sacrifice, terror, honor, pride, and the righting of wrongs.

On a bright, sunny morning, while the world was just barely waking up, terror in the skies came barrelling down on America.

Buildings fell, humans burned and died in the horrible attacks.

We were hit by a small country, part of the Axis of Evil. They struck us fast, hard, and by suprise. We had people who might have seen it coming, but predicting the day time and location of the attacks was nearly impossible.

Immediately after the slaughter of American lives, we went to action. We went after the country that hit us. We bombed the crap out of them and paid them back. Death and war is never pleasant, but this was revenge. They had awaken a dangerous, powerful beast that was lulled to sleep by peace and its own power. We went to work to kick their hind parts into oblivion.

Then, we also went to work on an ally who had similar intentions for us. While they had not directly attacked us, we knew they were coming and we had to stop all of this evil force at once. We were hit hard by their little buddy, and we were sure as we could that we needed to stop everyone who had destruction and violence planned against us and our people.

We beat the two countries into submission. We defeated the evil powers. Then, we went to work rebuilding the same countries. In time, they became as strong, if not stronger, in many areas than the United States.

We are a powerful country who reacted to a swift and painful blow to push evil back and out of power. We restored the people of those countries to power and helped them prevent future dictatorships from returning.

Now, as you read the above, today, the somber anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, were you thinking of World War II...or the current War on Terror? Whenever you want to trash our country for going into Iraq, remember: Germany never attacked us, either.

We are a great country. We have the greatest military. Our troops are excellent. They always have been. They always deserve our support.

About Me...And This Blog Site...

My name is David A. Ebert, the oldest of two siblings produced by my parents, Leah and David G. Ebert. We are all Republicans, but I take it a toke or two...well, closer to 10 tokes...further than my parents,

I am very much a Right Wing Conservative. I am a Reagan Conservative. I believe Americans, in general, are smarter than elected officials in Washington, DC. We should be more in charge than the Government.

We, as individuals and families, should have more responsibility over our own, hard-earned money and not send more and more and more taxes to the out-of-touch politicians. I believe the government is there to serve us, and not us to serve them.

I believe in America's greatness and that, overall, we are the most generous, forgiving, intelligent, and genuinely decent country in the world. I also believe that we are the most powerful nation in the history of the world, but do not use that power to hold over the collective heads of other nations.

I believe that low taxes, intelligent spending of those tax revenues, strong initiatives on defense and education, and small government influence on the day-to-day lives of Americans are some of the most important ideals related to how the US should be operated.I believe in the freedoms granted by the US Constitution. I believe that judges should uphold and interpret the laws as written in the US Constitution, and not refer to any foreign legislation to make their historic decisions.

I believe the First Amendment, as well as the entire Bill of Rights, are the most important laws this world has ever seen.

I believe abortion is WRONG. I believe that homosexuality is WRONG. I believe that allowing anyone to publicly debate the possibility of lowering the age of consent, especially for young boys to consent to older men, is a tragedy of morality. I believe that organizations like NAMBLA should be publicly shunned and not given a platform to spew their harmful and dangerous rhetoric.

I believe there is a sad lacking in the ability of our nation to appreciate and accept self responsibility. We, as a nation, blame daddy, racism, sexism, classism, mommy, the mean teacher, the mean little league coach, the loud mouthed uncle, the financial status of the neighborhood in which we grew up in, and a million and one other reasons why we do not succeed. How often do we, as a nation, take the blame for our own mistakes? How often do you hear someone accept responsibility for their own mistakes? How often?

I am conservative. I am worried about the future of the country and the planet, especially if O-BOMB-A or Billary Clinton make it to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I will start posting my fears, my hopes, my ideas as they all relate to news and politics. I hope to open some eyes and change some opinions with my writings. Most of all, I hope you will read my words and be inspired to find the truth...and not rely on Chris Matthews or Keith Olberman or Katie Couric or Matt Lauer for your opinions. I hope you will break the mold and do something something that O-BOMB-A and Billary are afraid of you doing...
