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.

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 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.

Today is the day we set aside every year to honor those who have served our nation in our armed forces. My memory goes back to a blustery Sunday in 1941 – December 7 to be exact – when my family gathered around my grandparents big floor model radio to listen to a scratchy overseas broadcast informing us that Japanese war planes had attacked our Naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, doing massive damage to a major part of the Pacific Fleet that was moored there.

Some of my first vivid memories are the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the opening days of the Second World War, and the first news about the attack came to us over the radio.

When United Nations Resolution 181 was implemented in 1948, the agreement among the nations that a small sliver of land along the Mediterranean Sea – roughly the size of New Jersey – should be given to the Jews of the world. The children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob began arriving in the homeland they had prayed for, wept for and longed for for nearly two thousand years.

Gun control is one of the most divisive subjects in America, a “cause celeb,” a political football, a challenge to the Second Amendment and a thumb perpetually being stuck in the eye of law abiding citizens by President Obama.
