Once Upon A Time: An America that Worked!


Once upon an America – the federal government didn’t tell you how much health care you could afford – or how much your doctor would be paid – because you paid the doctor yourself. It worked.
-Rush Limbaugh-

I remember back some years, when I was a lot younger, parents being able to raise their own children without government interference, and you know, it worked. Now, the government interferes in almost every aspect of it, and it doesn’t work anymore.

I remember back some years, when I was a lot younger, we could go to school and we were taught things that really mattered. We were taught self reliance by our parents. Math, reading and science by our teachers, and healthy lifestyles by both our parents and our P.E. teachers. It worked. Now, with the government in almost every bit of that, it doesn’t work anymore.

I remember back some years, when I was a lot younger, heck even just a few years ago, I could light my house, with any light bulb or neon tube that I wanted too. The government stayed out of my business at home, and it worked. My energy bills were low, and life was good. Then the government got into it, and, guess what? It doesn’t work anymore.

I remember back when I was younger, you could put up, or not put up any Christmas decorations that you wanted, and no one said a word. And it worked. The holidays were happy and fun for everyone. Then the government got into it, and it doesn’t work anymore. Same thing for religion.

I remember back when I was younger, us kids didn’t learn about sex in the schools. Parents, teachers and principles took care of the school bullies, and us kids learned the right way to read and write, without all the slang or new words that were spelled unlike real words, but didn’t really exist in anything but slang.

We could read our diplomas and books, without any misspelled words to contend with, and teachers weren’t interested in indoctrinating us against the will of our parents, but instead they taught us. And it worked. Now, with the government involved, it doesn’t work anymore.

I remember back when I was younger, when businesses started up, with little government interference, they grew and prospered. Now the government is in almost every aspect of a business, and guess what? It doesn’t work anymore.

I remember back when I was younger, banks and mortgage companies prospered and sold homes to people and it worked. Then, Barney Frank and the government got involved making the banks and mortgage companies give home loans to people even if they couldn’t afford it to make things fair, and Housing fell through the roof. Before government intervention, it worked. After? It doesn’t work anymore.

I remember back when I was younger, businesses were run by the owners. If they went under because of bad financial practices, they went under. C’lie Vie. Someone else would start a new business to fill the niche. It worked. Then the government got involved and started bailing out companies that were going under because of bad business practices, and guess what? It doesn’t work anymore.

I also remember back when I was younger, if you got really badly sick to where you would die if you didn’t get medical help, the government stayed out of it, and you got better. It worked. Now, with the government getting involved in “death panels” and decisions to tell you if you were worth the operation to save you or not, and guess what? It doesn’t work anymore.

This even goes for the military. We used to fight wars when we had too, to win. Now we fight them to lose. The governmental regulations and liberal ideals involved, and it doesn’t work anymore.

I could go on and on about this. and this post would become so long, it would be a book. And I wouldn’t have to repeat any of the subjects one time. In other words, the free market system works, without government intervention, and the liberals hate that. In other words, families work, without government intervention, and the liberals hate that. In other words, most things in the people’s lives work, without government intervention. Start putting that intervention in? And it doesn’t work anymore.

There are so many examples of this, that it would seem that even a moron could get it. But the liberals don’t. The only way to save this country from finishing the flush down the proverbial toilet that the liberal big government people have put us in, is to vote them out of office. All of them who believe that we can’t do anything without them.

And we all know who they are. My question is, are we so lazy that we can’t find the reason to oust them? I know I am not. Going to do my part come November. I hope you all do too, for the sake of this great country we lovingly call America.

May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans. And Bless us to start using more common sense.

    Stay strong, frends… God will answer our prayers if we remain united as the USA! Happy 4th to all my patriotic countrymen and women! Stay free!

    “I remember back when…” too, my friend. And you’re right. Then it worked, now it doesn’t, especially education. Turning children against their cultural heritage and against the values of their parents is what public “education” has become all about. I do hope that Plancktastic above is right, and that “…God will answer our prayers if we remain united as the USA!” Because if, in His sovereign will, God chooses not to answer our prayers, America is doomed. God help us!
    reply from Robert: I don’t know, maybe it is because I live in the area of the nation called the “bible belt” that I see a lot of people clamoring to get America back on track, that I am so optimistic. But I do believe that God will answer our prayers for this nation and is already working on it.

  4. I heard this post, or most of it maybe, when I got off work as I was listening to the Rush Moment promo on WBAP Dallas this morning. I had to look it up when I got back to work tonight because it struck me as being written by someone that seemed to feel exactly how I feel about the track that this country is on. I was amazed to find that the post was over a month old and only had 3 replies; even as Rush put it out so elequently this a.m.
    Thanks for the reminder of the America I knew as a kid.
    reply from Robert: I got this idea exactly from the morning update from Rush. Now that he is on vacation it played again today. I changed it a bit and put some of my own ideas in it. ……but Rush had it right.
