At the same time, I am increasingly concerned over the condition of our country. I am concerned that we will see a year of enhanced attacks on the freedoms that we enjoy. At the forefront is the renewed attack on our gun rights. What a perfect example of Band-Aid politics. Trying to solve a deeply rooted personal problem by covering it with a Band-Aid rather than addressing the real issue—erosion of the moral culture of our society.
If we make a resolution for the New Year to take an active part in upholding and promoting high moral standards, perhaps we can stem the tide we are facing. I plan to do this by regularly posting on my FB page and my web site, johncarlsonforidaho.com. Perhaps we can have more impact than we think.
