What we need right now is for the people of this country to remember the words of Thomas Jefferson, “Does the government fear us? Or do we fear the government? When the people fear the government, tyranny has found victory. The federal government is our servant, not our master!” What we need right now is legislation introduced that will force current and past members of the Congress and Senate to retire with Social Security and if passed, Government Run Health Care. I would think if these things start to happen we will see some serious change in Washington D.C.
The basic undeniable truth is the change has to start on November 2nd, 2010, at millions of ballot boxes throughout this country. We, the people, have to make change happen! No politician can or will do it, certainly none that are in office now. Some have been there for 30 years and have been able not only not change anything but succeed term after term to make things worse for We, the people.
We the people. Think about that for a moment. It is the Preamble of the United States Constitution and this follows it:
of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
The Founding Fathers did not lay their very lives on the line for glory or ego; they did this so that their children and their children’s children would not have live under tyranny, would not suffer the injustices brought upon them by a then less than friendly England. They believed that there was a better way to run a society and over the past 230 plus years that way has proven to be the model for the rest of the planet. Socialism has been tried before; Communism has been tried before and over zealous religious rule has been tried before. All have failed or provide a low standard of living for the masses or both.
Yes, this country is broken and it needs to be fixed. It does need to be remodeled or retooled into something tried in the past by such notable citizens of the planet such as Hitler, Stalin, Lenin and Mussolini. Instead of readjusting it with a sledgehammer why not just nudge it back on track? Instead of revolution and revolt why not just change things with your vote?
I realize that some people tried to do just that this last November in elected Barack Hussein Obama. They thought anything would be better than four more years of the same old thing from the last eight years. How is that Hope and Change working out for you now? Some are steadfast that Obama needs time. Some believe that time will irrevocably break this country to a point we could never repair the damage without revolt and revolution.
Between now and November you are going to hear a lot of things from both sides about how evil the other is, about how one has a better way than the other, about how Obama did this and Bush did that. It will be hard to tune it out but you must. A Republican calling a Democrat evil is like the pot calling the kettle black. You have to realize that neither one cares a lick about you, your freedoms or YOUR CHILDRENS FUTURE! They care about their power right now. They care about the money they can make now and after they stop getting re-elected. They care about positions on Boards for big pharmaceutical companies they helped, big tobacco companies they took favors from, car companies they stole from the private sector and Unions they helped protect from taxes that you and I pay for them. They. Do. Not. Care. About. You. Or. Your. Children.
Yesterday Massachusetts came out from under the ether for the first time since 1972. They have health care in Massachusetts, the same kind Obama wants you to have or face jail or a fine or both. They do not like it. Listen to the good people of Massachusetts they have been where we are going unless you get bold, get mad, get educated and research the best candidate for the job. The best congressperson to represent your issues in your district. The best Senator to represent the people of your state. The person to shrink this monster government, stop meddling in your life and realize that the private sector in many cases can do what you need done for less, while making more jobs in your area. More people working means more consumerism, less crime, less people asking you for change at your freeway off ramp. It means getting the United States of America back to where it needs to be. Back to the visions of Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Washington and Revere.
