Our moment in history

EDITOR:

Now is the time to arise, sleepy people. You are being seduced and comforted by the “Cool Aid” of a Highly skilled and well entrenched radical left. We as a country are being led down a silk path in which we will be as a country, the first “Jamestown” of the 21st century. This is not the country left to us by our forefathers. It is not the country from which our young were sent to foreign soil to fight for and sometimes give their last full measure. It is not the country that so many of my generation went off to fight for in the sixties. It is not the country that sacrificed 50,000 men in Vietnam. For what great principal did these men give their lives, “To secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”

They did not go off to fight and die so that the country they love could be taken over by the radical left. If people want to live in a leftist political country let them move there. It is their free choice and let us who want to be free remain in this country. Surely there are enough leftist political countries to choose from in the world. However, that is not their plan. They do not want to leave because they just want to take over and control the rest of us.

So, what can we do as a citizen of the United States? In my opinion, we should hold no race barrier, no economic barrier and no hate barriers. We all are as one, Americans keeping man’s wish to be free, alive for our children. We were given the tools to keep ourselves free. We must look closely at every politician big or small, to see what is on their agenda and to see if they are upholding their oath and the Constitution of the United States. Being the President or a Mayor are not sacred jobs held until death by the incumbent. Change is healthy, in my opinion, for a free state. Congress is a good example of a room of mostly old duffers that have lost touch with us. According to a recent article on the Internet, this Congress was the most unproductive since 1947. Out of 3,914 bills introduced, only 61 bills have become law. Recently, a Congressman submitted his pending resignation after 14 terms in Congress, which is 28 years.

Next we should vote to get term limits on all political offices big and small. Two terms is enough time for any person to remain in office. Term limits will keep offices from becoming empires, such as the one created by Mayor Daley in Chicago.

It is our moment in history. We have to use our constitutional rights and reclaim the America that we inherited. The alternative would be to allow ourselves to stay apathetic and become the slaves of a government that wishes to control us from birth to death. We cannot allow this to happen on our watch. We must fight to give our children the same freedoms that our forefathers have given to us. We can take back our country by standing united shoulder to shoulder with other citizens and vote. We vote to the last man, we vote to the last ballot, we vote until our message is heard.
