Young & Old, we're in this together
By Michael Webster
June 10, 2015

Both young, old, black, brown, white, yellow, red, 99 per centers, tea partiers, students, union- non-union, republican, democrat, independent, no affiliation, government worker, or retired. We are all in this together. Let's join hands and stand together shoulder to shoulder as members of the United States Civil Defense Assoc. to help others during disasters who are in need.

The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data released recently. If all of us "old farts" have all of the money, we should be able to fight for our freedom and liberty. Governor George Wallace during his run for the office of the presidency Said "There is not a dimes worth of difference between the political parties." Let us try to elect someone who might be near honest and not be after feathering their own nests. That means NEW BLOOD, across the board.

The younger adults yes, our own children like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are "Baby Boomers" getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. Yes, it's true, we walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age and most of the rest of the world. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience.

We remember the days before television, of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, Tape recorders, eight track tapes, cassettes, fax machines, internet, computers, cell phones, smart phones, laptops, tablets and milk with sweet cream on the top of the bottle along with ice being delivered to our homes. It was kept in an ice box. For those of you who don't know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. We remember dinner with the family, setting on the stoop, just talking and being together. While the youngsters trapped Fire Flies in old mason jars. Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We survived the Great Depression, won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam. Built the biggest buildings on earth. The worlds largest railroads, and the most modern highway system there is. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We fought for the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave." And for the coveted U.S. CONSTITUTION. We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America, and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.

We hope the younger ones will wake up and join us in taking back our country, for us, for you, and most importantly for our children's future and for the future of the greatest nation the world has ever known.

With all our experience and the education we gave you, we didn't have sense enough to see through the lies of our government and instead we drank the 'Kool-Aid.' Now we're all paying the price and complaining about it. High cost of education, No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, loss of much of our freedoms and liberty by the government trashing the American CONTITUTION.

We need your help now and together we can win our country back so we can entrust you with the Torch of Liberty.

Well, don't worry young people, we'll be there for you the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and together we are going to start to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we're going, and in 2016 we're going to the polls together by the millions. Vote out all the old and vote in the new.

This land does not belong to the government it belongs to "We the People" We will together reclaim our land and our Constitution. We trust this time we'll do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to you and our grandchildren. God bliss you. We love you.

Our Mission Is: Disaster Relief by helping those that need it after a Natural or Man Made Catastrophe. Educate Americans on the importance of preparedness and recovery, including the Restoration of Constitutional government, rule of law, freedom and liberty.
