They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases, dinosaurs. Some of us are "Baby Boomers" 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.
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.
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 was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. You fell for Hope and Change which in reality was nothing but Hype and Lies.
You now have tasted socialism and seen true 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, your freedom, and voting.
Well, don't worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2014, we are going to take back our nation! We may drive a little slower than you would like but we'll get where we're going, and in 2014 we're going to the polls by the millions!
Can you feel the ground shaking? It's not an earthquake, it's a STAMPEDE.
