Think America’s on the Wrong Track? You’re not alone.

It only took two years, but we’re starting to realize just how much damage “progressivism” and the Obama administration are doing to us. There’s a new poll from Reuters/Ipsos released yesterday that shows president Obama’s agenda to be in trouble. 64% of Americans believe that the country is on the wrong track.

The honeymoon is officially over.

If you haven’t already, click on over and read the link, but be prepared for a bit of spin. One pollster can only attribute this to the recent spike in oil and gasoline prices. The rest of us out here in the real world know it’s not just the pain at the pump, prices are rising at the grocery store, too. And this comes as the majority of Americans have lost almost all, if not all of, the equity in their homes. Businesses are failing, record numbers of people are unemployed and on food stamps. There’s civil unrest in Wisconsin, and Ohio and Indiana as their legislatures do what the good citizens of those states elected them to do and the unions rebel in an increasingly more violent way.

The effects of ObamaCare are starting to be felt nationwide, unless you belong to the growing numbers of unions and other organizations that have received waivers and are exempt from it, that number having grown to over 1000 as of this writing.

Amidst all of this, oooh, look there’s Charlie Sheen! Hmm, could he be the embodiment of America today? Strung out and haggard, the result of hookers and blow, babbling incoherently and the focus of dead pools?

It’s enough to make you retreat to your local watering hole, turn on a basketball game, and let the rest of the world consume itself.

I wouldn’t blame you if you did. In fact, that sounds like a really good idea. But we have a bit of work to do first.

We have a nation to rescue.

We’ve come to the inescapable conclusion that we’ve been had. When nearly two thirds of the country realizes we have a problem, then maybe, just maybe, we can start to fix it. What’s happening to us is our own fault: we’ve let unscrupulous scoundrels worm their way into office, saying one thing (what we want to hear) and then when in office, doing something far different. Political gain and their power is what they want, not what’s best for the country.

You may ask yourself, “Self, what can I do, as a regular American, to stop this?”

Your self would reply, “Get up and get informed! Read! Find out about your own government and how it was originally supposed to work. Then you’ll know just how far we’ve gotten away from what the Founders intended, and how your freedom is suffering as a result. Understand that there are people in government who are actively working to bring you under their direct control and determine what you think and how you act. Is that what you want? For others to control you? Or do you want to control your own life?”

Set yourself to change your country, only this time in a positive way. Use your intuition (it's not just for women anymore) to tell you what’s true and what isn’t. Find out about candidates, what they believe and which organizations are funding their campaigns. Read their speeches, watch their YouTube videos and gauge their actions against your own sense of right and wrong.

In other words, become the American you were intended to be.

Proud, independent, fiercely protective of your family and your God-given rights, truthful and intolerant of lies, particularly when they come from the people you elect to act for you, engaged, informed and capable of defending what you know is your heart is right.

Become a warrior for truth and country. And know you are not alone.
