What a great day in America! On Saturday September 12,2009 a new day dawned in our country. Estimated by park officials at 1.2 million people, the enormous crowd stormed our capital. They came with signs, with heartfelt concerns, with a sense our freedoms and our futures are being stolen from us. They marched singing patriotic songs, chanting and hoping that a government deaf to this typcally silent majority would HEAR THEM NOW! They came from every corner of our country and with a plethera of concerns, but all with a common theme. Nearly everyone there wanted to impress on government officials and fellow citizens our country and constitution are in mortal danger. They came with hope we the citizens of this country could reclaim the sense the country and it’s future belong to us and not to the corrupt and self serving politicians who hold hostage our government. Only the days to come will show this had any impact. I can assure you this is only the beginning. I can tell you personally that as I marched along with the throng of patriots who filled the streets for as far as the eye could see, there was a shared sense of empowerment that could be felt by everyone. There was also a shared sense of commitment we would not relent until the country was returned to We The People from the hands of special interests trying to co-opt our lives and our futures.

I can not say it better than the Declaration of Independence:
“When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
