STRENGHTH IN WORDS FROM OUR FOUNDING FATHERS


The wisdom of our founding fathers  holds true today more than ever.  What they projected would cause us to fall from greatness, has and continues to happen.   Here are a few quotes from our founders to ponder:

” Banks have done more injury to the religion, morality, tranquility,  prosperity, and even wealth of the nation than they can have done or ever will do good.”  John Adams

“I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared.  To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.  If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labor and in our amusements.”  Thomas Jefferson (Worth repeating I might add)

“Beware the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry.”  Thomas Paine

“All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise not from defects in the Constitution or Confederation, not from a want of honor or virtue so much as from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.”  John Adams

“If ever again our nation stumbles upon unfunded paper, it shall be like death to our body politic.  This country will crash.”   George Washington

Here is my favorite:   “I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution.  I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of the administration of our government to the genuine principles of its Constitution; I mean an additional article, taking from the federal government the power of borrowing.”  Thomas Jefferson

I believe this is still the greatest country on the planet.   I don’t have to tell you what our fore fathers faced to gain our independence.   The turmoil and struggles they faced are not that different from what we face today.   They fought and won, and then built the nation it became, virtually from scratch.   We face a similar battle that only living in a modern time makes different.

We can rebuild this nation to an even greater greatness.  We can regain a more respected place in the world, one that we are looked up to than looked down on.

We need to  start by using our minds, our voices and common sense.   I believe there isn’t a problem that doesn’t have a solution.  This is 2014, we have the knowledge to find the answers……… are we willing?

Oh, by the way, we still have a right to assembly, together we make a very powerful voice.

RE-ELECTION OF THE CLOWNS


 

Many primary elections are approaching, it is time for us to make some change.

Albert Einstein once said “Insanity:  Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”    We have a United States Congress that a recent Fox poll shows  a 78% disapproval rating.   A man in the White House, that I have a difficult time calling the President, with a 55% disapproval rating and quickly falling, even among Democrats.   So, why then do we keep re-electing these people over and over again?

When employees don’t work hard and don’t perform their jobs, they eventually get fired.   We need to fire some people, now.  Why do we put these men and women, Democrats and Republicans back into office when they do nothing but draw large salaries, or we disapprove when they have done something?    Career politicians get way too comfortable………   It was never intended for elected officials to make lifetime careers in government; do your service and go home to your daytime job.

What is even more troubling and totally insane?  We have members of Congress that are  constantly made fools of and clowns that have been in their seats so long, I can’t remember when they weren’t there.  You know who they are; Nancy, Harry, John, Diane and probably another John.

We and we alone are responsible for who gets put in office.  I know money buys elections, and present office holders have the most name recognition.   Finding good qualified candidates is difficult.   They are out there, there in your neighborhoods, your own household.   I know there are very intelligent men and women with common sense and integrity walking among us.   We need to find them, encourage and support them.   We need new faces, new blood, unafraid to do whats right and not just politically correct.   We need leaders that put America first.

We all need to get involved and turn this nation back around…….lets get rid of the insanity.

 

 

 

 

GET INVOLVED AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE


Incompetency is a word being thrown around quite frequently by we the people, regarding politics and the leadership abilities these days.  We however, are ultimately responsible for holding those in office and the power brokers accountable.   We after all put them there.  We accept their wrong doings, with only a slight verbal lashing and a hand slap, and as Congress would say, “Don’t do that again Mr. President.”

We hold our own destiny and that of our children’s in our own hands.  We need to hear more from all of you, become active, run for office, become a part of a solution, rather than a complainer.

WHAT HAVE HOMEGROWN TERRORISTS AND THE WHITE HOUSE HAVE IN COMMON?


Now, if you are the President of these United States, and you had just released 5 Taliban leaders from prison for terrorist activity – would you want your Attorney General to announce that he would like to create a new task force on the threat of homegrown terrorism?  Then, not long after their release the man who occupies our White House admits they could participate in future terrorist attacks.  First of all, Dah on that.   Of course they will,  their terrorist leaders.   Obama didn’t give them up to the Pope for religious rehabilitation.

Obama, opened the door for future terrorist acts.   Gee, I doubt that their hard hearts softened while they served their hard time.   Obama may as well have had a Taliban strategy meeting with his 5 buddies, then opened the door and said……”Go ahead boys, have at it.”  So, Barack, when it happens you carried out your part.   There, Mr. Eric Holden Jr., you can start there with your task force against homegrown terrorism.   When you get your force in full swing and have more opportunity to spy on all of us, don’t forget to bug the White House.

I don’t have any problem whatsoever, with doing what it takes to prevent terrorist acts and bring to justice those behind killing innocent people.      But don’t just look in one direction………when the threat against our national security may also reside in Washington D.C.

OBAMA AND FREE WILL, HIS FREE WILL


I am by no means a minister of any religion.   I do believe individually God gave us free will, to make our own decisions.   But just that, individually.   I decide which path I choose to walk down.  I don’t make that choice for others.    I may have an opinion of the direction others should walk, but only they can take that step.    This is how we live our lives in a free society, individually making decisions for ourselves and families; but we must live together collectively, and rely on leaders to lead.

For leaders to lead, they can not use individual free will to protect the free will of the people as a whole, collectively as a nation.   President Obama, has chosen to go down roads under his own free will, without any regard of the interest and will of the people, We the People.   It’s his agenda, to do his will…………hell he doesn’t even concern himself with the will of his own party.    Don’t you hear his voice, …..I will do this.  I will release terrorist prisoners for an unknown soldier that may have made his own choice of free will, that was not the will of his fellow soldiers.

Individually we have free will and collectively as a nation we have Will of the People.   Obama cares not, about our will as individuals or as a people.    It is all about his agenda, to tear down our will.

The next time President B.O. approaches a podium to express his will, watch his body language, it’s that of a tyrant.
