"Erick Erickson" is asking all Americans to step forward and take back their country - don't miss his reviews daily on the State of the Union.
The next time someone tries to sell us “change,” run the other way. What we need is the “same ole, same ole.” Let’s go way back in history, shake the dust off the Declaration of Independence, Gettysburg Address and embrace our Constitution.
No matter what your religion is – you must admit that the foundation given to us by our forefathers was God driven and actually etched in stone. This strong foundation was created for all men and women in America and will withstand the storms of demonization. Our forefathers insured that our country would be safe, prosperous and most of all free from all outside corruption, if we but insured that our Nation would remain “One Nation under God with Liberty and Justice for All.”
Here’s a statement by Sam Adams that pretty much describes our government in 2010, but there is light at the end of the tunnel for many true patriots are raising their hands and stepping forward to “take back our country for our children, grandchildren and future generations.
Sam Adams: “If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”
Our Government over a period of many years reversed roles with we the people; the Government does not work for the people! It is attempting to control the people. We must take back our Government and place in the competent hands of the people.
Abraham Lincoln said,” that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
We the people must step forward in November 2010 and vote for those who will restore our Nation – we can’t complacently sit back and watch the rest of the crazy world go by… We must do our homework before we go to the polls; quit listening to the “he said, she said” crap and do what is right for our Country and future generations to come.
Review the status quo on October 1, 2010; we are in debt up to our armpits and beyond. For whatever reasons the Healthcare Reform has literally placed our businesses, the medical community, senior citizens in limbo due to the unforeseen costs and poorly formatted bill.
Government spending is becoming an albatross around our necks that we won’t be able to remove if we don’t insist on a budget. The legacy we will leave our children and grandchildren will be a chilling shameful mess that they don’t deserve.
Transparency must be implemented immediately in our Government – they work for us and we must be the decision makers. No more shenanigans behind closed doors – it’s our money or our dime so to speak and they are totally in adept when it comes to spending our money.
Stop the earmarks – each state must be responsible and stand on their own two feet. Protect our Military at all costs, no more war game restrictions – let our military commanders do the job we sent them to do and quit tying their hands behind their backs. Our freedoms have endured the tests of time due to our brave men and women.
Terrorists are terrorists, illegal aliens constitutes a crime, they are not a race, those who are corrupt in our Government need to be placed behind bars not just smacked gently on the hands or reprimanded. It’s time to quite kidding ourselves; we’re in a war on our own turf and it’s time to win the war.
May God Bless America
