Restoring a USA Lifestyle
Don’t we all long for a yesteryear which was grounded in traditional values, unity, a respect for work and for this country? The innocent days of Mayberry, Mary Tyler Moore, The Waltons, and so forth. Where everyone knew their neighbors, the owner of the grocery, the barber, the school teachers, the sheriff. People sat on their porches and snapped green beans from their gardens for supper that night, churned homemade ice cream, and took homecooked meals to the sick. Kids played from daylight to dark, chasing fireflies, digging in the dirt.
Church wasn’t an afterthought, it was vital….the picture of praying hands or Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane, hanging in the livingroom or the kitchen. Those with foul language got their mouths washed out with soap. Baseball games, parades and apple pie. We made USA and bought USA. Didn’t frequent any big-box stores but instead supported the folks with businesses in their hometowns. Who says we can’t get that way of living back, at least on some level?
If we want that kind of Star-Spangled America back, we’re going to have to resurrect and restore it with vim and vigor. Let’s start today in our local communities across this nation.
How? Get to know and support your local neighbors and businesses. Buy your produce, milk and meat from the farmers. Grow a community garden. Stay away from chains, especially those which are anti-conservative. For a FREE list of pro-conservative businesses, email firstname.lastname@example.org and put Free List in the subject line.
Use locally owned banks. Get out of debt. Find dentists, doctors and nurses who do not cave to medical tyranny. Unite and form a patriot-loving network. Can pastors and congregations continue to sit on the sidelines in political battles (especially affecting morality and culture)? Because the un-involvement has allowed the enemy inside our gates, homes, workplaces etc. Is bowing down to a governmental non-profit status keeping people silenced? Pull your kids out of public schools where they’re being indoctrinated. Christian-school or homeschool. Bring families back to the dinner table.
The Star Spangled Chick is all about inspiring toward a red, white and blue-tiful lifestyle which preserves family, God and country, focusing on health and happiness. In one of The Chick’s favorite memory-lane tunes – the Mary Tyler Moore Show theme song – “You’re gonna make it after all!” To book The Chick click here.
