Did We?

The great historical irony is that unlike the Russian people who understood the perils of socialism and fought the Bolsheviks in a bloody three-year civil war that by some estimates took fifteen million lives, the freedom-loving Americans keep voting themselves into socialism.

Indeed, Communist leaders from Lenin to Brezhnev are sardonically grinning from hell and watching in disbelief as what was impossible for the Soviet Union to accomplish with all its military might and nuclear arsenal is being endorsed by the duly elected American legislators.

Fifty-five years ago, in 1964, Ronald Reagan gave a speech on behalf of presidential candidate Barry Goldwater that would become known as “A Time for Choosing.” His ardent warning of the advance of socialism in the United States resonates even more today:

"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."

Did we?


Given our current trajectory and climate...the passed tense action question is unchanged...just the form and difficulty describing it.

In present tense -

What will we do?

What are you willing to do?
Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*

Have you ever been in the audience when someone is speaking on stage? They are entertaining/motivating/enthralling the crowd & at one point they say: “I want everybody to reach your arm above your head . . . as high as you possibly can!”

Everyone participates.

Then the speaker says: “Now I want everyone to reach . . . just a little bit higher!”

Everyone does . . . & laughter fills the room.
