Throw the Bums Out!
 
Continually we see people in elected office thumb their noses at citizens of this country. There is a blatant disrespect for our constitution, our founding fathers and our citizens. Those in government make a mockery of us. When a voter writes their representative, a mere form letter is sent back. When a voter calls to voice their opinion on pending legislation, a clerk takes the call and it goes no further. When good citizens, concerned with the direction their country is heading, take the time to come to a town hall, they are beaten down and admonished. In many cases there is such disrespect for the voters that no town halls are even held. Yet, voters continue to re-elect the same scoundrels. Voters have not pushed for term limits. Voters have not demanded real government reform. Why?
 
Is it apathy? Do they think it is merely politics at play? Is there a disconnect between what happens in government and citizens everyday lives? Are citizens so used to the abuse they just think that is how government is supposed to be? I do not know.
 
Congratulations to all who attend the tea parties, town halls, freedom rallies and citizen group meetings. Congratulations to those who are tirelessly calling and writing their representatives week after week. Congratulations to those willing to speak out against the tyranny, corruption, and self serving behavior of our elected officials. Congratulations to those people who have put up web sites that act as tools to expose the actions of elected officials.
 
Our Declaration of Independence makes it clear. It is our job to stand up to tyranny, misrepresentation and a government that does not function on the people’s behalf.
 
It is time we, as citizens of this country, ban together to shed our government of those who seek to make it anything other than what it is supposed to be. Our Constitution makes clear what is expected of the government. This is being ignored and put aside in favor of an ever growing grab for control over the lives of American citizens.
 
We have made a good start. Let us not waste this opportunity, lest we find ourselves one day soon, nothing more than a unsoveriegn participant and unwilling funder of a “global” community. More power is given away every day – taken from the people and gladly handed to the international governance of the UN, the World Bank and others. It is not enough the government is prostituting and disrespecting it’s citizens, but now turning us into slaves for the international community is on their “to do” list as well. 
 
Stand Up America! Fight for your country! Your voice is your weapon! Ten minutes a day from each one of us is all that is required. Send an email a day, make a phone call a day. Please do not sit idly by and allow them to separate us by Democrat and Republican. That is like imploring us to take sides between the devil and Hitler.. neither choice is a valid representation of who we are as a people, of who our forefathers envisioned. If you can schedule more time than that, by all means. We as a people need to reclaim our future before it is no longer ours to reclaim. If you can not see what is happening to us and to our country, you have not been paying close enough attention.
 
When it comes time for the 2010 elections, speak loudly. Do not sit home quietly thinking you can not make a difference. We need every voice to ban together to make a choir, so loud it will be akin to screaming from the mountain top “We Want Our Country Back”. Do not make a choice simply between Democrat and Republican. Look at the independent candidates, the libertarian candidates, all the candidates. If a local debate seeks to shut out all but the normal players, raise holy hell. All voices need to be heard. All those in office who have not stood with the constitution need to be sent packing. If the fight for our freedom is not won with this election, I am afraid the die will be cast. Time is running out for our once great nation.
