America, Sweet Home and Our Government

April 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 127

I have not lost resolve or commitment to our wonderful nation and home, The United States of America, but I want to stress the concept of "United." If you, the reader, find yourself relating to the concepts that I present, then I know that I have selected well. I can see with one eye that this is not the America that my Dad grew up in and helped to make strong and free. Time for some honest-to-goodness spring cleaning in our government!

I believe that our Motherland is in danger, but not as much danger as it would appear to the untrained eye. As the "silent majority," or more accurately, "the straight-thinking majority," we have been observing and analyzing all of the seemingly insane antics of a Government run amuck. I feel confident in stating that all of the profound failures and constitutional violations of Big Government will only serve to make us all more responsible in the future; and we will never stray down these Socialist and Marxist paths again. (Say that last part quickly) One needs only to see the aftermath of these twisted schemes in Europe and elsewhere to appreciate how "dead-end" these paths truly are.

Be vigilant my friends. Know the issues and know the candidates. Get out and vote responsibly. It seems the least that we can do, considering the rewards that come with living in the greatest nation under God's heaven.

I believe that each of us needs to protect our personal rights and freedoms, but realize that when our actions violate the rights of others. They are no longer our "rights." Likewise, when the government encroaches upon our rights as American Citizens, then it becomes our duty and privilege to stand firm and say "NO!" "You, Mr. Government, are of, by and for us, The American Citizens, and don't you forget it for even a moment." Actually, I think the politicians have forgotten it.

I say the government does not decide what is best for us, but rather it's sworn duty is to look to us for guidance. Listen to us, Mr. Government! Dissolve your delusions and visions of grandeur and get back to reality. Operating smoothly and efficiently is your people's will.

We have had more than enough. We have given you way too many chances. We are a united people; much more so than current government realizes. We are not a bunch of mindless sheep walking quietly to the slaughter.

Look boldly at recent history where charismatic "leaders" have swiftly and heartlessly led their "followers" down the road of ultimate destruction. Not to the American People you won't, No Sir! Be ye warned, we will not tolerate.
