The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data.
We have worked hard, raised our children, worshipped our God and grown old together. In school we studied English, history, math and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age.
But there are a few things you need to remember about our generation. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Vietnam. 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 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 in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it - we have one good fight left in us.
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 mostly 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.
Many of those who fell for the "Great Lie" in 2008 are now having buyer's remorse. Now you're paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom.
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 Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2014 we are going to take back our nation. We're going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor 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.
Can you feel the ground shaking? It's not an earthquake; it is a stampede.
