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.

    First, I think you meant "Jonestown" not "Jamestown". Jamestown was the first English settlement founded in America. Second, the people of this country chose to re-elect President Obama, who is far from a radical leftist. Our nation is changing, and if the Republicans choose to stay on the path that they are heading down, they will go the way of the Whigs.

    I have to wonder what "radical left" these people are referring to as they opine about our impending doom as a republic. As I look at the past four years, the two most significant social policy implementations have been the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the repeal of don't ask don't tell. Universal health care and gay people serving openly in the military have been the law of the land in Israel for decades. Is Israel a "radical left" nation? I have a hunch that Bibi Netanyahu, who strongly supported both policies, would disagree.

    President Barack Obama won the election by over three million AMERICAN votes. The electoral college vote is 322 to 203. Who do you want us to take the country back from? Maybe it is you, Brian, that needs to find a new country to reside in.

    Thank you Brian for your comments. I know what you are speaking of but I think what we need to do is get away from left vs right, liberals vs conservative and speak only to all US Citizens and Citizens of this entire planet. The U.S. both through the Bush Sr, Clinton, Bush Jr and Obama Administrations have suffered the loss of many of our constitutional rights. Contrary to popular opinion, Obama is a war monger who promised to bring the troops home but is in fact escalating by sending drones to kill both innocent and perceived terrorists. Clinton, Bush and Obama all support the United Nations Agenda 21 which seeks to enslave and introduce taxation on just about everything to all peoples of the world, not just the U.S. - under the guise of saving the environment. Yet the very same corporations who actually do the major amount of pollution and damage to our planet, continue to pollute, ruin our food source, introduce more dangerous vaccines and just recently release genetically modified mosquitos. The main problem is most American's will not and do not take the time to step away from mainstream media that is bought and sold by these same interests that run the planet. Do your homework on Agenda 21 dear citizens because it is being implemented right here in our county. It will scare the pants off of you to know what the United Nations and our government have planned. But if we are to save this country, we need to come together as citizens united, not divided. Your constitional rights are quickly slipping away, wake up and realize that this is happening. Neither Democrats nor Republicans have done anything to stop it, because they are OWNED by the special interest groups, the criminal corporations like Monsanto, pharmaceuticals and most importantly the same guys who own the Federal Reserve, the ultra criminal bankers. Wake up, do your homework and then get involved to help change the direction we are currently headed - not to only a one world government but tyranny. Get past what you believe are conspiracy theories for seeing truth is to be open to all information, connecting the dots yourself and then taking action (peacefully). Stop all knee jerk reactions and take the time to absorb information and do homework from all news sources. We have become big government, not we the people, by the people and for the people. This was not was intended by our forefathers.

    Patrice mentions several facts and several opinions. The facts she mentions are FACTS indeed. She nailed it on the head with the view of Obama, the Bushes, Clinton, and the the corporate world. Everything she says is verifiable and true. The opinions, I also happen to agree with. Very sound logic and a well stated synopsis of things as they stand. Well done Patrice.

    Patrice, I would wholeheartedly agree that we need to stop this left vs right, us versus them mentality. But having said that I would ask, precisely how do we address the problems you cite in your letter? As one example, let us look at the genetically modified mosquitos. If we pass a law prohibiting such practices, there will be no shortage of people protesting against "big government regulation". Even if we had such a law, nothing prevents the company from setting up shop in Mexico or some other foreign country and continuing with this research. That leaves us with requiring an international treaty so that genetic modification experiments are not permitted anywhere. That brings us back to the UN. So you tell me, how do we put a stop to such practices without resorting to either the federal government regulation or UN oversight you clearly oppose? I don't see how we can have it both ways. I do not think it is realistic to demand solutions to problems that are truly global, but then oppose any possible solution requiring participation on a global scale.

    Heinlien "Political tags – such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative and so forth – are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.” So, take your choice-controlled or not controlled. It is up to you!

    I hope you'll all have a chance to see the film "Lincoln." Although it doesn't look at the mythically saintly Founding Fathers, it offers a good view of the messy realities of government. In practice, it's always been sausage making, with perpetual disagreement based not on who wants to be controlled, but more on who wants to do the controlling. You'll love the film, because it's a chance to reflect on a once great Republican Party.

    Democrats solve dept ceiling crisis----via Huff Post: "Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said the U.S. “absolutely” should get rid of the debt ceiling as soon as possible. “It would have been time a long time ago to eliminate it,” Geithner told Bloomberg TV on Friday. “The sooner the better.” Geithner did not commit to personally doing anything to eliminate the nation’s legal limit on borrowing. When pressed on the issue, Geithner told Bloomberg TV: “This is only something only Congress can solve. Congress put it on itself.” “Only once, last summer, did people decide to use it to threaten default on the American credit for the first time in history as a tool for political advantage,” he continued. “And that’s not a tenable strategy for the country.” -------What could go wrong?

    Nope, no Fox, no MSNBC. But Phil heard that phrase on Fox, so it must be truly unique to that network and therein 'patented.' And Mr. Carter, I said the movie was refreshing--meaning in light of the downward spiral of the Republican mindset--not that it was new information. I encourage you to see the movie. Very enjoyable.

    Longhofer-That was very garcious of you to assist Phil in a socially awkward moment. Now if I understand correctly you watch five minutes of FOX news everyday spread amongst the various shows. This amount of viewing gives you a complete understanding of all shows and all stories and how they , are handled. I believe, though not sure that Fox has fifteen hours of unique programing. If my trusty calculator is correct and my fingers accurate, this means you view 0.08333% of the viewing. Of course that figure does take into account any commercials that might have been viewed at that time. And this makes you an expert in the programing on FOX. No wonder our intelligence community is so inaccurate.

    Dee, you forget that 5 minutes a day for 365 days equals 30.4 hours. One can learn a great deal in 30.4 hours. Rest assured that 30.4 hours is sufficient to come to the conclusion that Fox News is a propaganda outlet for the Tea/Republican party. I regret that's it's true, but it is true nevertheless.
