The Grey Hair Brigade

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain
silent." - Thomas Jefferson

GREY HAIRED BRIGADE

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some
cases dinosaurs. Some of us are "baby boomer" getting ready to retire. Others
have been retired for some time. 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, worshipped 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.

Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience.
We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and
ice being delivered to our homes. 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. 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 won World
War II and fought in Korea and Viet Nam. 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 didn't fight
for the Socialist States of America; we fought for the "land of the free and
home of the brave." We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We
know the words to the Star Spangle 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 about 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.

It was the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic
congress. You fell for the "Hope and change" which in reality was nothing but
"Hype and lies." You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have
found you don't like it after all.

You make a lot of noise but most are all too interested in their careers or
"Climbing the social ladder" to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism
and voting.

Many of those who fell for the "great lie" in 2008 are now having buyer's
remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn't have sense enough to
see through the lies and instead drank the kool-aid. Now you're paying the
price and complaining about it.

No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you voted
for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and
you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

Well, don't worry youngsters, the Grey Haired Brigade is here, and in less than
a month we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than
you would like but we get where we're going, and in November we're going to the
polls by the millions. This land does not belong to the man in the White House
or to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to "We the People", and "We the
People" plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do
a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren.

So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, stand up,
put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old
geezers of the Grey-Haired Brigade."
