The things our fathers knew,

Past generations of Americans told us that "Communism is evil". They likewise told us "Capitalism is good". Right thinking Americans realize now that they were right. But without an internet, cable news network, or a conservative media how did our past generations understand those truths? They understood it because it was taught to them from a young age. Their parents taught them that living is a joy, but that joy comes with a price. To maintain your freedom you must not take it for granted; you must not trade it for security. Sure they could have been satisfied with moving across the northern border into Socialist Canada; instead they learned from their parents just how precious freedom really is. Our hats should be off to them.
