I have been reading the replies and comments on the VENT area. The venom is so disheartening. We have got to remember why we are here and who the enemy really is. We will never agree on every point. We can only remember that we have many common points of agreement and unite on those points. We have a greater enemy among us and we cannot afford to lose sight of who and what that enemy is - Socialism, Big Government, Subjugation, Liberals, Debt, Deficits, anti-constitutional thinkers.
We CANNOT EAT EACH OTHER!!! We CANNOT be sidetracked. WE HAVE TO REMAIN FOCUSED. We have met the enemy and it is not US!!!
We have a huge fight on our hands at the ballot box come November. We have got to target our anger towards the goal of eliminating those currently in Washington who refuse to abide by the will of the people (there are some who deserve to remain - most need to go).
Year after year, the polls say Congress sucks, yet year after year the same folks are re-elected. Why is that? I can think of only a handful of the current Congress who deserves to remain - Michele Bachmann, Jim DeMint (yes I know he is a Senator) Marsha Blackburn, Eric Cantor, Mike Pence, Paul Ryan (there might be a few others that I can't think of right now and you may disagree with some of my picks - though I would contend at least these are agreeable to OUR mission)
Why are Barbara Boxer, Charles Rangle. Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Nancy Pelosi, Lyndsey Graham, Harry Reid, Alan Grayson, Jim Cooper, Joe Sestak, Russ Feingold, John McCain, any Kennedy, Lisa Murkowski... the list goes on and on, re-elected when they really do a horrible job?
The self-serving, power hungery, subjugating RULING class have got to be stopped and stopped NOW.
If we do not stem the tide that is rolling our way NOW, we can write off generations to tyranny and oppression.
We have a contract with our government, the US Constitution, THEY are not abiding by that contract and they must be stopped.
We have got speak up, speak out - wherever we are. Wherever there are people, we have to take the opportunity to educate - the line at Wal-Mart, grocery store, the bus stop, the airport, sitting in the chair getting a haircut or our nails done, the Doctor or Dentist office (while we still have the choice to go) the breakroom at work, the smoking area outside, the Sunday School class, family reunions... We CANNOT afford to be afraid or shy.
I really understand Patrick Henry (and I include more of his famous quote here) -
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! - Patrick Henry
I would be worse than dead as to live with someone trying to orchestrate my every thought, action or deed. I have never allowed myself to be subjugated to the authority of any thing or any one other than than the Sovereign authority of the Almighty, Living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jesus Christ. I don not intend to start now
Talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words (I know cliches). Do we really have the guts to "pledge our lives, our fotunes and our SACRED honor?
As for me and my house.....
