"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

Repeal, Repeal, Repeal!

By all indications we are just hours away from a disastrous vote in favor of Obamacare. But even if it does pass, all is not lost. There is still time for us to change the make-up of Congress and get this law repealed! But we must do it quickly.

You may recall that Prohibition was voted into law as our Eighteenth Amendment back in 1919. Ironically it was a union pushing for that legislation too! It took Americans 14 years to change that law, but change it they did. The law was repealed in 1933!
Unfortunately, we need to get this law repealed in much less time than that because it takes affect in 2013. It is imperative to vote out ANYONE who has put his or her name in the affirmative column of this legislation. We The People need to reassert OUR control over our government. Our only tool is the vote. But it is an all-purpose tool, and it is affective. Unfortunately, like any tool, you need to use it! We have an opportunity to show Washington that they answer to us! By doing so, we will keep future Congresses in line for fear of answering to the people's vote! Something they haven't feared in a long, long time!

Socialism, and then Communism, under the guise of Progressivism and Liberalism must be thwarted, and we are in the unenviable role of embracing that challenge. But we have a responsibility to protect liberty for our children and for all future generations. We also have a responsibility to respect and honor the memory of all those heroes of the past - both fallen and not - who fought valiantly for Freedom and Liberty! Were all those lives lost in vain? Were all those veterans who survived but were maimed and/or mentally scarred, maimed and scarred in vain? Did your father, or uncle or brother, or grandfather fight meaninglessly?

I think not. I hope you all agree.

So, I come back to this theme. What are you willing to do to protect Freedom and Liberty in America? How far are you willing to go? What line won't you cross? Will you defend the Constitution with your life, your fortune, and your sacred honor as our founders swore they would do? Do you care enough about Freedom and Liberty to do that? Do you care enough about the future of your bloodline to do that? You need to ask yourself these questions. You need to evaluate what you think this legislation, and other legislation that will be rammed through Congress under this Administration, and the Obama Administration itself means to the future of America. You need to do that now. We don't have the luxury of waiting three or four or five years to "see" where it leads. Because by the time we can see that outcome, it will be too late to react.

This Government, which is supposed to be "of the people, by the people, for the people", has lost its way. They are no longer for the "people"; they are for a select few. They have turned their back on the majority "of the people". I think intentionally, though some might argue that point. It's time for them to face the music. It's time for us to turn them back around and get in their faces. It is time for them to recognize that America is not only about the poor, the immigrants (legal and otherwise), the environmentalists, the pro-choicers, or any other minority! It is about ALL the people! And ALL the people must do what is necessary to make that tenet known throughout Washington, and throughout governments in all fifty states! The silent majority is tired of being viewed as second-class citizens! We are tired of bending over to appease every perversion of society that garners enough of a following that some idiot politician grabs it for their base. We are the majority! We WILL be heard! Or God help us, there will be a reckoning in America!

God Bless America, and God Bless Us ALL!
