America needs to step back and take a long look at what we're doing.

Recently, I have been thinking about how much life has changed in the last three quarters of a century and how much of that change is influenced by the bureaucracies and federal agencies that hold sway over almost every facet of life in America today.

I usually don't write about subjects like the one I'm going to broach today, because I, like I know many of you, dislike hearing people "blow their own horn" or brag on their achievements.

When I look at the unfathomable vastness of the universe, the intricate workings of the solar system, the constant, predictable journey of the moon around the earth and the earth around the sun, it's incomprehensible to me that it just happened. It is inconceivable for me to believe that it was just a random occurrence, nothing more than the explosion of gases in space that luckily resulted in a nine planet solar system, with the third one from the center being the only known inhabited planet in existence.

Recent events in Belgium, Paris, Cologne and San Bernardino have proven that Obama's supposed 65 nation coalition to combat terrorism is about as effective as a BB gun against an alligator.

Maybe it's been the four years since the last presidential primaries that have dulled my memory somewhat, or maybe it's a mild selective amnesia that takes the edge off highly unpleasant thoughts, but I don't remember any past presidential primaries where I've been as disgusted with the debates, the rhetoric and the degree of malice and vitriol as this one.

I will be the first to admit that I have been bitterly disappointed in President Obama's tenure. Some of the disagreements are philosophical in nature: the fact that he believes in a different America than the one I believe in. Obama’s vision is an America with a bigger government, more bureaucratic control and income redistribution, basically European-style socialism, which, in my opinion, is doing damage to the nation that will take decades to repair.

In the last fifty years I have been blessed with the privilege of traveling all fifty of our states. I have played in almost every town of any size and been honored to meet and spend time with the people who live across the length and breadth of the place I consider to be the greatest nation the world has ever known.

The founders of this nation were wise, practical and insightful, crafting our federal papers in such a way as to require a certain uniformity insofar as basic human rights are concerned and enough wiggle room for individual states to conduct their affairs in accordance to the concerns of its citizens.

Something never rang true about the apprehension and boarding of two American Naval vessels by the Iranian Navy. Something just didn’t seem right.

I admire anybody who strives for peace, especially those who work to insure a peaceful future for our children and grandchildren. It is a noble calling.

When a person hears the word "free" they are apt to get excited because they think it means they're going to get something of value without having to give anything in return.

Back in the days of the mega ranches and cattle drives, one of the highest compliments you could pay a cowboy was to say, "He rides for the brand."

If what happened in Cologne and other cities in Germany on New Years Eve, when young Muslim men insulted, groped, robbed and raped German women who were on the street celebrating the holiday doesn't wake Germany up, they are in for a long and probably irreversible ride.

In all my years, living through good times and bad, war, recession, periods of great advancement, social upheaval, the eradication of catastrophic diseases and the myriad of forward leaps and backward slides in this United States of America, I have never seen a time when our population was on such adversarial footing.

To say Donald Trump is brash, self-aggrandizing, abrasive and given to 360 degree offensive statements would be an understatement of universal proportions.

To have a self-acclaimed socialist in the Senate of a nation that spent two generations fighting against it is a surprise, but to have one running to be the leader of the free world is a real wake up call as to how far removed this last generation has drifted from the truth of the abject failure of socialism and what an unworkable system it really is.

The New York Daily News had a full-page headline that read, "God Isn’t Fixing This," a pointed jab at a suggestion that many Americans pray that God will intervene in America's struggle with radical Islam.
