Quote :
…Once there was a great nation, founded by pilgrims who decided to leave their own country which didn’t recognize religious freedom. They migrated to an uncivilized land inhabited only by savages. The rock where they landed was to become a national shrine.

They drove off the natives, built rude shelters and houses of worship, setting aside a special day to give thanks.

These pilgrims believed in their god and they also believed in work. They established schools and in a way became the first public education in the free world. Other colonists came and established their communities.

Eventually, they built large cities using Greek architecture. Some of the noblest words ever written began to surface: Such words as “liberty,” “justice,” and “freedom of worship.”

Then an older nation sent tax agents to exploit the colonists. The colonists sent their greatest representatives to a general assembly, choosing a gentleman farmer as their leader. He united them and won the war against the “old world.” The farmer is known as the “father of the country.” Today, a famous US city is named after him.

Ultimately, the country was divided. A civil war divided the fledgling country. Its leader who tried to keep the republic united was assassinated. His murder has been immortalized by one of the greatest playwrights of all time.

After the wounds of the bloody civil war were healed, the nation became a world power. Next, the civilians began to think of security paid for by tax money. Farmers petitioned for price support. The government bought up crops and stored them in warehouses. Industrialists were next asking for tax benefits. The middle class declined under the added tax burden. Crime became so commonplace, it was dangerous to walk the streets at night.

A crippled man led the nation into the war of foreign entanglements.

A general who had been victimized by the government pleaded with the nation to return to the principles of their founding fathers. He died bitterly, thinking his anguishing thoughts. An honest senator dared to speak out for the halt of foreign aid and foreign subversion. He was branded a reactionary.

The nation fell deeper into debt. It joined a league of the world. It increased taxes…, devalued its currency by substituting base materials for silver in its coins.

Do you know who it is?

Sadly, it sounds like America to me.
