Editor, The Beacon:
In the words of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, “At what point then is the approach of danger [to our country and its freedoms] to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”
Are you paying attention, America?
How about the words of our 40th president, Ronald Reagan: “Freedom is a fragile thing and it’s never more than one generation away from extinction.”
Are you sleeping, America?
Now we have a nationwide election coming up on Tuesday, Nov. 8. You all better get out and vote. The survival of our country is at stake. Do you have to think about it?
Our country is coming up Tuesday, July 4, 2023, on the 247th anniversary of its founding. Will it still be here, and free?
A citizen of the republic,
