REMEMBER Miracle on Ice
by ICWare, 05/21/16
Am watching the end of Miracle on Ice. We’re about to kick the Soviets’ ass at Lake Placid Olympics Hockey game.
The coach was driven. A no nonsense guy and drove his players on detail and worked them until they didn’t think they had anymore to give. But that’s what good coaches at this level of the game dish. Not to mention when a hockey player is on the ice, they’re a different kind of beast. They can take, and they need, what a good coach yells out. America needed a boost during this time and these young, some teenagers and some college students gave that day by beating professional Russian hockey players whose job was to practice hockey for years.
Excerpt from Article abouteconomics.com
“The Political Impact of the Poor Economy in the 1970s”
“The economic upheaval of the 1970s had important political consequences. The American people expressed their discontent with federal policies by turning out Carter in 1980 and electing former Hollywood actor and California governor Ronald Reagan as president.”
We won that Olympics Hockey game in 1980 against the Soviets and it was the biggest shot in the arm we Americans could have gotten. It gave us hope. We then, made the best decision to recover from our debilitating socio-economic situation. We elected Ronald Reagan as president.
We are now at another vital decision-making moment that will either continue driving America into a third-world country and communistic style rule with little freedoms. (Ex. The children’s choir was stopped from singing a patriotic song In Washington DC for no $35 permit, or IRS closing kids’ lemonade stands down or the children at school losing individual freedoms or an old man jailed for feeding homeless in Florida). Or, Shari’ah law recognized federally one day.
This will be our last opportunity for multi-generations, if we ever recover from losing the freedoms we continue to lose every day.
If you love this country, what our flag stands for, what it felt like to be free to speak, write, drive from state to state without a passport which is in the works, if you remember what it was like not being watched or listened to as if you lived in China, N Korea and so many other countries…I ask, are you a patriotic citizen or have you fallen into the sphere of drowning in meeting family needs and find it difficult to think of much else?
Now is the time for all good people to come to the aid of their country. Vote for Donald Trump. Anything else will bring more tyranny to us, our children and great grandchildren.
A Patriotic Citizen
