"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

Five Pledges ALL Congressmen and Women Should Agree With

Glenn Beck developed 5 pledges for our Congressmen to support, they are … 1. I believe in a balanced budget and therefore will vote for a freeze in government spending until that goal is realized. 2. I believe that government should not increase the financial burden on its citizenry during difficult economic times therefore I will oppose all tax increases until our economy has rebounded. 3. I believe that more than four decades of U.S. dependence on foreign oil is a travesty therefore I will support a plan that calls for immediately increasing usage of all domestic resources including nuclear energy, natural gas, and coal as necessary. 4. I believe in the sovereignty and security of our country and therefore will support measures to close our borders except for designated immigration points so we will know who is entering and why and I will vehemently oppose giving another country, the United Nations, or any other entity, power over U.S. citizens. 5. I believe the United States of America is the greatest country on earth and therefore will not apologize for policies or actions which have served to free more and feed more people around the world than any other nation on the planet. Ask your Senators and Representative if they support these 5 items. If they do not, ask them why? If they can explain rationally, I'd love a comment on what they said. If they can't explain, refuse to explain, or can't support ALL five of these, VOTE THEM OUT!!!!! I heard one guy on the radio talking about how he asked his Representative if he would protect and defend the Constitution - a requirement of the Oath of Office he took. The Representative never answered the question. There's a no-brainer for voting someone out of office, wouldn't you agree! Wake Up America!
