Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian Nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.~John Jay
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?~ Patrick Henry

As grateful as I am to have experienced that America, I am saddened that my grandchildren never will.

My wife and I were married in 1954 and the first of our 3 sons was born in 1956. We remember those days fondly.

It was a truly great time.  We have a lot of conveniences now but the times back then were magical.  Some of the common day things then that we never thought about would boggle our mind now. --  Now when there is road construction, there is an electronic sign to warn the motorist.  Back then was a small container about the size of a gallon of milk filled with kerosene and an open flame.  No one thought much about the open flame.

Definitely a more innocent time if you lived in the right part of the country and were a certain skin color.

Many historians, economists, Charles Murray of the Bell Curve, etc...agree we peaked as a civilization in 1964.

Manufacturing was booming, the suburbs were booming, national debt was low, we built the highway system, our education system was one of the best in the world, immigration was low and Jim Crow was destroyed finally putting blacks on a level playing field.

Things starting going downhill shortly after that.

As I look back. I'd say that is right. After the mid-1960s things never seemed to be the same again.
