Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Bald Eagle swims to capture prize; Conservatives must not give up either

Conservatives, Constitution, Nature

I watched the following video clip with amazement. Since the American Bald Eagle is our national bird, I couldn't help but think of the symbolism of it all.  Watch.

The eagle would not give up. He/she needed to get that fish to feed itself and possibly its young.

It did not succeed the 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. try but kept at it until it succeeded.

But then the prize was too heavy to carry to safety in the traditional way. It had to do something I have never heard of or even knew was possible. IT SWAM with its WINGS as paddles!

Our liberties, our rights, our future, our constitution are all on the chopping block. We conservatives, who have been fighting against tyranny, have made a few valiant efforts to push back against those who would seek to change America as we know it. However, because we didn't prevail in the last presidential election, and many of our Republican representatives are backing down on fiscal restraint or standing up for our freedoms and Constitutional rights, we might feel like throwing in the towel on it all.

But keep fighting the fight to preserve our God-given rights.

Watch the eagle again, and take heart that sometimes the impossible is possible...if you don't give up..
