Letter: Wake up America!

Wake up America! Your personal freedoms granted by our Constitution are slowly being taken away by overzealous politicians dictating when you can leave your home; how you dress; when and where you can travel; and with whom you can socialize. The only method of change is removal from office by means of popular (or unpopular) vote.

Wake up America! The owners and managers of professional sports now condone, even encourage, kneeling while our national flag is raised and our national anthem is played. Watching, listening to, or attending their games will further encourage the desecration of our heritage and patriotic symbolism for which our forefathers fought and died.

Wake up America! The main stream media portrays the feelings and wisdom of all Americans based on the actions of a few congregated in urban arenas such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Seattle. Mid-America, the vast majority of voting constituents, are ignored as unintelligent, gun-toting conservatives. Failure to express your opinion further perpetuates this lie.

Wake up America! We learn from history that despotism and domination of the soul starts with removing said history and replacing with less than factual lies. Removing historical statuary, deleting historical facts from our schools and failing to learn from the past are the hallmarks of Marxism and fascism. A population that is ambivalent will soon be a population that is ruled by a few and feared by none.

Wake up America, before it’s too late.

Craig Sullivan, Lima
