Fare Thee Well America

Submitted by AMAC Member Thomas Perkins – Fare thee well America

I love you. It breaks my heart to see you down trodden, as you have been by my side through good times and hard times. Your spirit has followed me to foreign lands and has kept me strong as I have fought for your good name, but as my hair has gone silver and you are fighting, perhaps your final battle, I just wanted to let you know that I have loved you and have respected you, from the moment that I first opened my eyes and was rewarded by your beauty and your providence given by God.

I have been blessed over the years to have been able travel and experience many parts of you, from Florida to Texas and from New England, thru the heartlands, to your west coast and on to Alaska, where your pioneer heart still beats strong. I have to say that in all areas and respects you are indeed a grand ole girl and I admire and love you dearly.

I know that I am getting older and I am not able do things as well as I once did in my youth, but know that I have sworn the oath of allegiance and will always be here for you, to defend you to my dying breath and I know that there are more out there that will stand with me, for you my beloved, have shown the light of freedom on multitudes and therefore should never have to stand alone. So, as your Glory waves before me today, I will, with straight back, stand tall and salute you with honor.

Fare thee well, America.

Thomas Perkins

I have read all the comments and wholeheartedly agree with them all. But, don’t loose hope, which is easy to do. I just turned 60 & have 2 kids-22 & 24 and they are on our side. There must be others like them. My problem is like so many of you have already stated-how do we get the politicians to get Obama out? It seems that even tho’ they are suppose to vote the way we want, they vote their own mind. As stated before they don’t want to loose their voters on other things so they make deals. I don’t think any of them have the guts to stand up & do the right thing. And to be fair, if they don’t make some deals, they don’t get many of their bills passed. It is just too corrupt. I would like for someone to pass a bill stating that… Read more »

Seems like only moments ago, aspirations ran so high with renewed hopes for the nation as Ronald Reagan stood before us and declared ” America is too great for small dreams ”
We must pray hard and hold to this belief that the small dream of Hussain Obama will crumble into oblivion and OUR GREAT NATION will, somehow rebound to its roots. It is such a great nation it really does not matter what the cost would be to return us to the America we know it to be. Basic honesty, truth, and goodness of the americian way must prevail.
Remember when we sang in our classrooms ! ………. “GOD BLESS AMERICA”

All these comments are wonderful and hold so much truth. God is still with us ,but we need to change the direction America is going. We need to do this for our children and our grandchildren. As one person we are nothing ,but as a group we can change things, and with God nothing is impossible! We need to take America back ! We need to stand up for our beliefs and our dreams. I am not ready to give up! Are you?

Thank you all of you beautiful people who took the time to comment. If you at any time, read the lefty comments at all, you will see how this is totally refreshing. You can spell, and you can express yourselves without profanity.

I’m thrilled to know that not all Seniors have given up. I’ve talked to so many, even in church, who don’t want to “get involved”. We must get involved in some way. Thank you sherri p for the websites.

My husband and I will do what we can in the Tea Party group here in Indiana, and we will pray. Every day. God bless America.

Dear Folk, this is the reason why the world is going the way it is. The Politicians are secondary to the problem: 2 Chronicles 7:14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Matthew 24:1-44 (NKJV) 1 Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple (Represented were God’s people worshiped at the time), and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” (This happened in 70 AD to show Israel that God no longer favored them as a nation because they… Read more »

Reading all these thoughts and comments from everyone had made me realize that I am not alone in feeling so very depressed and discouraged about what is going on today in this country! I can barely watch the news anymore without getting a sick feeling in my stomach! So many people just don’t get it today or just aren’t interested in what is happening around them. And then we have the “low information voters” whose lack of knowledge is quite frightening. I pray for our country every day, but it doesn’t allay my fears!!

“Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and render to God the things that are God’s.” I don’t care how many laws this country’s courts approve or laws our arrogant leader forces on us, my beliefs in free will, traditional values,– (marriage between a man and a woman, no freewheeling of drug use, no killing babies while claiming to protect women, no forcing religions or Christian Companies to provide contraceptives and morning after pills etc.) will not waver. No one has the right to over-ride God’s laws and there is going to be even bigger civil disagreement and separation in this country that may destroy our beautiful America as we have known it and loved with all our hearts. I don’t even recognize that America now. We really need to get down on our knees and ask God not to forsake us. We need Him now more than ever.

I do send them money but they are not enough to do the job -there has to be a concerted effort from everywhere-which I say a call to all lawyers who care, take the time to do it sorry it has to be pro bono at start.

Disruptive Element:

There are some organizations that are willing to sue the Government: two of them are the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) and Judicial Watch. Send them some money to support their efforts and they will act for you.

After much dismay and thinking of ways for us to solve this, as our complaining and contacting our representatives in Washington have been to no avail, I have come to the conclusion that there needs to be a call out to all the lawyers in this country to file lawsuits against the Federal government for all of their dereliction of duties, fraud, breaking of laws, not enforcing immigration laws, and all the scandals unresolved and no convictions for crimes against the taxpayers of this country. Maybe that would get some attention as there seems to be no way to stop this runaway train.

It is such a sad time. Who would have thought we would be mourning the death of our beloved country when we were younger? We thought it was too great a place for anyone to even WANT to destroy it, except for those who were evil themselves. And we knew why it was great—we believed in the God who helped our forefathers write our unique and timeless Constitution—the one of which our kids are either completely ignorant, or they are taught that it is flawed, outdated, and represents a country that doesn’t deserve to be respected. It is true that lately we do not have a lot to be proud of. We have allowed abortion, irresponsible sexual behavior, and now, “same sex marriage” to invade our territory, as well as millions of illegal aliens who have no intention of adopting anything American except for our dollars and our corrupted way… Read more »

I agree that we going down the tubes. Yes, it angers me that so much that has been fought and bled for is going away like so many dandelion seeds being blown in the wind. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We, the people, made a choice. Enough of us voted for the man to put him in the White House. But we also made a choice to allow the killing of millions of our babies. We made a choice to exclude from our everyday lives Holy God who created the world.. “We” cannot change anything that is happening today in America, but Holy God can. These statements are connected. If you are a Christian, I am speaking to you. Revival begins within the church. Please get out your Holy Bible and read 2 Chronicles chapter 7 verse 14. Holy God will heal our land.

Karen, to your point which was very well taken: I notice how abrupt people are these days, angered easily…we are all under pressures of detrimental changes to us and our country by an Anti-American administration! obama has appointed approximately 50 czars for the purpose of having more power and bypassing Congress. obama appointees are opposed to good policies for this country, which is the reason obama has appointed them. They are all about taking power from the people, our freedoms, our rights. Remember the “hysteria” obama tried to incite in the American public by releasing violent criminal illegals because of sequester…so he said! He could have very easily released Americans whose time served would have made them eligible for release. That’s the kind of underhandedness obama has for us! Instate tuition for illegals? I think this is called discrimination… against Americans , and interest payments on college loans are scheduled… Read more »

All of us angry seniors tell it like it is. I’ve heard younger people say obama (lower case deliberate) is brilliant. And he is. He’s transforming our country into a marxist/socialist state. And now, they’re emphasizing hiring people who don’t qualify for jobs. Another way of ruining America! I say impeach them all…and send them to Gitmo!!!!!

Gail T

I could not be more disgusted than I am right now with our socialist president. He needs to be impeached NOW!!

While its important to put God first in our lives and ask for his guidance, it is my fervent belief that he expects us to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps and DO something. You can kneel all day long and ask God to fix things, but that is not how our country fought off the oppressors in the 1700’s. It was done with the will of the people demanding freedom and fighting for it. I’m not advocating fighting for freedom militia-style, but nothing will be won if we do not get off our knees and butts and go to where the politicians are stealing and wasting our taxes and where the politicians are strangling us with regulations and laws that are created for the benefit of the few in many cases. Maybe it’s time to pull an Egypt on them and NOT leave until they listen. If a bunch… Read more »

I’m with you Mr. Perkins and I too feel helpless watching what is going on, I have a few years left too and it pains me there is nothing I can do to change it. There are 1300 federal agencies and the Congress has over 23,000 staff that were appointed not voted into their positions. We are shackled and hand cuffed to a deaf government.

GREAT LETTER MARCELLA! MY SENTIMENTS EXACTLY!

I admire the thoughts expressed. However, I do not believe that just because we are old, we are powerless. You can still pray, write/email/call your elected representatives, try to influence those around you (family and friends) and stand firm in your belief in God, country and the good people of this country, many of whom have commented here.

DICK JORDAN

THE FOLLOWING PALES IN COMPARISON TO THE THOMAS PERKINS LETTER. BUT, I’LL OFFER IT UP ANYWAY JUST AS IT WAS SENT TO OUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER (AND PUBLISHED BY THE WAY). LAMENTATIONS I’M GOING TO MISS YOU OLD FRIEND..AS ARE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WHO REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES. WE HAD QUITE A LIFE TOGETHER–MANY WOULD SAY LONGER THAN MOST GET. BUT, WE WERE HOPING FOR CONSIDERABLY MORE. YOUR DEMISE WAS QUITE A SHOCK TO US. I DOUBT MANY EVEN KNEW YOU WERE ILL. THEN AGAIN, THIS TYPE OF SICKNESS CAN SIMPLY CREEP UP ON YOU WITHOUT YOUR REALIZING THE SERIOUSNESS OF IT. BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, YOU ARE IN CRITICAL CONDITION. WHAT A RUN WE HAD THOUGH…YOU AND ME AND ALL OUR OTHER FRIENDS. STILL, WE EXPECTED YOU TO BE AROUND FOR SEVERAL MORE CENTURIES. I GUESS WE WERE NAIVE OR MAYBE WE JUST UNDERESTIMATED THE STRENGTH OF THE VIRUS AMONG… Read more »
