Some of us are Older than the "Baby Boomers” getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were.

 We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God, and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

 In school we studied English, history, math, and science, which enabled us to lead America into the technological age.

 Most of us remember what outhouses were, and many of us with first hand experience. We remember the days of telephone party lines, 25-cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes.

 For those of you who don't know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators.

 A few even remember when cars were started with a crank.

 Yes, we lived those days.

 We are probably considered old fashioned and outdated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off.

 We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so.
 We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America we fought for the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave."

 We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America, and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing.

 We have lived what many of you have only read about in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.

 Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us.

 We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.

 It was the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. You fell for the "Hope and Change" which in reality was nothing but "Hype and Lies." You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don’t like it after all.

 You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or "Climbing the Social Ladder" to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting.

 Many of those who fell for the "Great Lie" in 2008 are now having buyer’s remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn't have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the 'Cool-Aid.' Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

 Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Gray Haired Brigade is here, and in 2012 we are going to take back our nation.

 We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we're going, and in 2012 we're going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to the man in the White House or to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to "We the People" and "We the People" plan to reclaim our land and our freedom.
 We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren. So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the "Gray-Haired Brigade."


 Come on guys. Lets get this circulating.

LOL, they must not have taught logic in the old times.  First you claim it was the young who voted for Obama and then you claim the young are too involved in their careers to vote.  Fact is the MAJORITY of the voters voted for Obama and will do so again this Nov.

Wrong again!  Prices of homes have not been this low since the mid 90s.  If you bought when Bush Jr and the Republicans were in charge, THEN you’ve got big time remorse.

With whom?  Your liberal candidate Romney?  LOL!  Romney is pretty close to Obama on the issues you all get so worked up about; the only difference is Romney won’t pay for what he spends.  He'll send the bill to your great great great great grand kids.

And so are the rest of us who still remember what George W Bush the Republicans did when they were in power for 8 years!

And who is responsible for the last 4 years.....Oh that's right it's still Bush's fault.  If Obama gets another 4 years, it will still be Bush's fault.  When will he talk responsibility for what he has done.  It is not just the big guys he is hurting, all of us will have to pay for what he has done.  We cannot squeeze it all out of that 1 %.  Millions to his buddies like Salendra and such (and that money went where??),  than he complains that Romney's campain money could have educated thousands of students.  It's always someone else's fault...get some ba***!!....take responsibility!!....The Gray Hairs did and still do.

I've heard this whole "Romney is so close to Obama, that we are getting the same thing" for awhile now, mainly coming from the left. It is a way to suppress excitement and diminish any thought that there may be something other than what we got now.

If they are the same, I guess everyone should vote for Romney, and put term limits on presidents, especially one's that will have nothing to stop them from going any further extreme. You see, as Obama said...(paraphrasing)"wait till I'm reelected, then I'll get some things done" was the whisper off camera to the Russian President.

So why allow a president to have a second term when nothing in the form of reason, and the lack of another election, will matter?

If they are the same....VOTE FOR ROMNEY. This will ensure at least some reasoning in the fact that Romney will not do anything crazy, in hope of staying in power.  Wink

If the left says they are the same....then change your vote. "Hope and Change" can mean many things.  grin

It is time to change the "B.O."  Wink

On the assertion that the majority of voters will vote for Obama,I would not be so sure. there were a lot of people not excited about McCain and did not realize how far left the political pendulum was about to swing. With two years of Obama reid and Pelosi,I think the silent majority that sat on the sidelines will not make that same mistake twice.
 Obama did not even keep his promises to the young who thought they would never have to make another mortgage payment or pay for gas in their cars again. Even with two years in complete power,they could not get that done.  Thank God!!
