November 2010: America’s Defining Moment

How can we take our country back from the beholden-to-special-interests, could-care-less-about-the-constitution, out-of-touch-with-the-people career politicians?

We are at a crossroads in the United States of America.  It is our defining moment in more ways than one.  “These are the times”, as Patrick Henry uttered, “that try men’s souls.”  The time when the “summer soldier and the sunshine patriot” shrink from serving their country.  It is the time of our defining destiny; the time when true patriots must arise, whatever the cost.

Will we as a people continue to live in apathy and indifference toward those who have entrenched themselves in elitist, government power?  Will we continue to watch from the sidelines as more and more government intervention is piled up on top of us until the growing and crushing weight of tyranny suffocates and paralyzes us in inaction?

Have we become a people so void of understanding that we would trade our God-given freedoms and liberty to pursue our dreams for sugar-coated freebies and government handouts.  Will we continue to support and install bleeding-heart politicians, who continue to raid our purse, in their quest to be masters and “saviors” of the people?

Will the American people continue to be duped into believing that a government that wants greater and greater control over the economy will not eventually, and of necessity, control us as well?  Will we, the American people, hand these pseudo-intellectuals in our nation’s capital, more and more power to control us through force and coercion?  Will we surrender our inexorable and inalienable rights and consider them only a dispensation of government?

November 2010 is our defining moment.

We must use the power of the voting booth to take back our country from the career politicians who are threatening to destroy our Republic and take away the freedoms intended for us by our Founding Fathers.  We must unceasingly strive and push until term limits become the Law of the Land.

We must have a rebirth of the true American spirit, rugged individualism, personal initiative, self-control and small government.  We must again regain a spirit of national dignity.  We must be challenged in the spirit of Patrick Henry, “Sirs, we are not weak if we make proper use of those means which the God of nature has placed in our power… Besides, sirs, we shall not fight our battles alone.  There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations … the battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.”  Are government bailouts and handouts so dear and unceasing government programs and takeovers so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?  May the nation this November thunderously declare through their vote, “forbid it, Almighty God!”
