I remember coming home in 1976 after having served a tour of duty in the Navy. Jimmy Carter would soon become president and Watergate would be but a bad memory compared to what was to visit middle-class American households.

Jobs were scarce, unemployment was the order of the day, gas prices and inflation were running rampant and interest rates topped out at 21 or 22 percent during the Carter administration. It seemed that America had seen her better days and that this was the new normal. At least this is what the Democratic leaders were telling us. Sound familiar?

President Obama’s administration sounds just like a carbon copy of those days, maybe worse. The Democrats are still giving us the same hype and gloom and doom about accepting their failures as the new normal for America.

However, with new leadership, optimism and firm belief in the American dream, this country pulled out of the Democratic naysayers’ mess once, and we can do it again. If there was anything to Obama’s policies, we would have already seen major change after four years and the average middle-class American would not continue to see their wages slip into the black hole of inflation, which has robbed their paychecks of its buying power.

The difference between 1976 and today is that Americans then knew when they were being spoon-fed a fairy-tale and opted to vastly improve their personal lives and those of their families by voting out the naysayers and replacing them with optimists who still had a belief and clear vision of what America was supposed to be.

Let’s pray the average middle-class American is still at least this smart.
