What America did….what America can do

It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government.
-Thomas Paine-

It isn’t hard to see just what America can do when it is needed. World War II was a great example of this one. During the three and a half years of World War II, that started with the Japanese sneak attack bombing of Pearl Harbor to make it so we couldn’t fight in the war, America, which when starting, was totally unprepared for what was to come, did this.

The U.S. knuckled down and produced twenty two (22) aircraft carriers, eight (8) battleships, forty-eight (48) cruisers, three hundred and forty nine (349) destroyers, four hundred and twenty (420) destroyer escorts, two hundred and three (203) submarines, thirty four million (34,000,000) tons of merchant ships, One hundred thousand (100,000) fighter aircraft, Ninety-Eight thousand, (98,000) bombers, Twenty four thousand (24,000) transport aircraft, fifty-eight thousand (58,000) training aircraft, Ninety-three thousand (93,000) tanks, two hundred and fifty seven thousand (257,000) artillery pieces, one hundred and five thousand (105,000) mortars, three million (3,000,000) machine guns, and two million five hundred thousand (2,500,000) military trucks.

We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.

This was all done with the government listening to the military on what it could and should do, and the government staying out of the way. Americans went to war, got prepared while fighting that war, and took the world by storm. But now, we have government telling us we can’t do anything. Heck, in the same amount of time that was world war two, our esteemed administration couldn’t even put together a working website. But is is worse than that. Remember Harry Reid telling us we can’t win the war?

We can’t win the war on terror.

We can’t close our borders.

We can’t balance the budget.

We can’t win the war on crime.

We can’t discipline our children to make them better.

We can’t disagree with the president.

We can’t catch and send illegals home.

We can’t stop helping them in ways that only Americans should be helped.

We can’t stop spending more than we bring in.

We can’t fight our enemies, but we can fight Christians.

Whatever happened to the WE CAN DO IT mentality that America used to be famous for? That made America strong? The answer can be summed up in one word.


Nuff said, don’t you think?

God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless us everyone.


About Robert P. Garding

I am a Reagan Conservative, who is very alarmed at the Liberals who have just lost their majority over our government, but continue to act like it never happened. They have to be stopped. NOW or even sooner.

    Our “buddy” Harry isn’t interested in keeping America strong. He’s more interested in keeping his party and idealogy alive and well.

    Merry Christmas, Robert.
    reply from Robert: Thanks and you are so right. And I hope that you and yours have a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. And liberalism, progressivism, whatever-they-want-to-call-it-ism — aka Marxism — is cancer. Pure and simple.
    reply from Robert: And the same to you too Skunky. Good to have you around. HOpe that your Christmas was great and your new year will be better than last year. God Bless you and yours.
