… 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.”
Simple words, straight-forward system of checks and balances, and the means by which each of us could live our lives in a safe, organized, and just manner. Yet, here we are today facing an election like no other in recent memory. More Americans are more angry at their Political Heroes than they have been in a very long time – even (I dare say) more angry than they were at George W. Bush and the GOP such a relatively short time ago.
We are out of work. We are living on food stamps and unemployment. We are seeing our dwindling dollars being spent on bailouts and regulations and Federal intervention into every nook and cranny of the private sector. And, we are getting increasingly vocal about these things at the very same time that our elected officials – from both parties – are losing their collective sense of hearing. We are at war, today, with the very people we sent to Washington to do our bidding. They have chosen to squander our good faith, and turn their backs on the very people for whom they should be on their knees in gratitude for the job so many of us do not have.
Today, We the People begin to take back our country. We will not win every battle today. We won’t see the end of this “war” for a long time to come…perhaps not even for a generation…but the beast has been awakened. The reckoning has begun, and it will not stop until the wills of the millions will be bent to once again by the hearts and minds of the thousands.
The Constitution at our backs, we move forward now and build the foundations for the next step. 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue [fixed per request] is up next, and we go after it staring tomorrow.
