A message as relevant today as it was 60+ years ago

There was a time in this country when patriotism and love of freedom was something to be proud of – not something to be derided and mocked by the elite.  There was a time when success was lauded and put forth as something to aspire to – not something to be punished and taxed into extinction.  There was a time when freedom was cherished – not traded for the soft tyranny of “safety”.

I recently came across a cartoon from 1948 (thanks to the Thorum at bradthor.com), that is a relevant today as it was when it was made 63 years ago – perhaps even more so.  It’s a cartoon that puts forth a persuasive argument for the American way of life.  It’s a cartoon that tells you everything you need to know about the financial and jobs crisis we are currently in, and what the path back to prosperity looks like.  And, unfortunately – it’s a cartoon than would most likely never be made in today’s America:

When anybody preaches disunity – tries to pit one of us against the other through class warfare, race hatred, or religious intolerance – you know that person seeks to rob us of our freedom and to destroy our very lives.



Watch it.  Think about it.  Discuss it.  Pass it on.
