Patriotism redefined Robin Cox

Entrepreneurs, innovators, pioneers, and hard-working individuals who asked only for freedom tamed and developed western Pennsylvania.  Today, the region is home to self-pitying sheep who blame everyone else for their situation.  They believe government is a white knight to rescue them.  We fought against communism and socialism in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Cold War, yet far too many of us believe socialism is the answer.  Our ancestors must be turning over in their graves.

For things to change, we must change.  Quoting Benjamin Franklin, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”1
