BOTH sides of the aisle have a history of flying above the Law and below the moral radar. Each side has their own banter, but the 2010 election began a turn … There is a rumble, a deep rumble as one by one, AMERICANS – WE THE PEOPLE are awakening. We look around and barely recognize our America. The rumble of dissent is growing. The rumble of Patriotism is rising. The rumble from the “home of the brave and the land of the free” can be heard in the distance, swelling in volume and intensity. Neither left, nor right, Liberal nor conservative, Democrat or Republican … but AMERICANS are beginning to see, to hear, to smell a rat that is stinking up the whole nation with poisonous words designed to terrorize and turn American against American.
Divided we fall; United, we Stand!
“The book, entitled “American Social Diseases,” highlights problems such as crime and drug use, and a “spiritual and moral crisis.” The book says the U.S. suffers from a “spiritual deficit” and faces “moral extinction.” It also cites “excessive sexual indulgence” as a problem.”
“Although some observers whine and gnash their teeth about how this [“Strategic defaults”–walking away from your mortgage] symbolizes the decline and fall of American morality, it’s what corporate borrowers have been doing forever, so it’s about time we eliminated the double-standard. (It’s also the way your bank views you–as a business transaction–so don’t romanticize it as an Indian blood-promise.)” READ MORE
“Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and Harry Truman could only dream of the kind of sophisticated and cosmopolitan understanding that folks in Peoria have now compared to the old days … By contrast, we have never had an Establishment that was so ill-equipped to lead. It is the Establishment, not the people, that is falling down on the job.” CONTINUE READING
WE THE PEOPLE need to retrace our steps. We need to find our “center,” our “CHARACTER.” We allowed it to slip away, not just in recent months, but over the last few decades. Piece by piece, bit by bit, the American Character was worn away by lies, greed, and self-indulgence. It’s not about religion, but about moral character. Moral character is what built America and what has sustained her. Unheard of sentiments like: take responsibility for yourself, finish what you start, be tough but fair, take pride in your work, and always do your best. Now, America’s character is “relative,” “subjective” – A hand up has become a hand out. A nation of individuals has become a pool of conformists. A nation of free and creative thinkers and entrepreneurs has become a nation of clones who spout the party line eloquently and wait for the prompts.
It’s not in labels or party affiliation, but in character, integrity, honesty. THESE are what Americans, what WE THE PEOPLE seek. We’re done with compromise, with mediocrity, and mis-representation! We’re holding our elected officials to accountability! WE THE PEOPLE are NOT as dumb as the elected elite seem to think we are. WE THE PEOPLE will speak until we’re heard, because this is OUR country!
