United We Stand, Divided We Fall

It's time fellow Americans. It's time we Unite to defend the inalienable Rights granted to us by God and Our Constitution. Year after year our Government strips away those rights a little at a time. For decades they've been stripping away our rights, little by little, with NO ACCOUNTABILITY. They've legislated loopholes to subvert the Democratic process set forth by our Forefathers. They do this right under our noses in the Name of "Progress"

What's the opposite of Progress?............. Congress!!!

Everyone (it seems) wants to blame our current quagmire on former President George W. Bush. Do these people not pay attention to History? Do they remember the last time our economy was in trouble? Most don't. Some of us are not old enough to remember. Most of us don't remember ( or choose not to) all those History and Social Studies classes in school. Most of us don't pay attention to what's been going on in this country, or even the World. They have no idea what Japan's "Lost Decade" was, or how our "Great Depression" transpired. It would seem we've been too arrogant or apathetic to care.

The political "Powers that be" have kept our attention on Our President, and not on the whole system. Our Congress has made careers out of their elected Civil Service Positions. They've used their positions to line their pockets and retain power for far too long.

I live in Maryland and I remember when Barbara Mikulski (D-Md) was first elected to Congress. I was a young boy and William Donald Schaeffer (D) was still in office. If I remember correctly, he was still the Mayor of Baltimore. Does anyone remember that? I'll give you a clue, it was approximately 30 years ago. She's still in office today, and I can't remember one significant thing she's accomplished while she's been in office.I'm sure she can spout offnumerous "appropriations" she has aquired " for the State of Maryland" I've never voted for her, and I don't know anyone who has. Do you know someone like that where you live?

Why would someone spend Millions of Dollars to win an election for a job that pays less than $200,000 a year? Congress is the problem. They run term after term, for decades, with no accountability.They Black ball anyone that is a threat to their power. They vote for raises for themselves regardless of their performance. I could write a book thats larger than "War and Peace" about the violations on our Constitutional Rights!!

Fellow Americans, it's time to do something about it. Glenn Beck Said it, " We Surround Them". It's true. There is no greater power on the planet than a large group of people with the same goals. Americans proved it when we beat England in the Revolutionary War. We proved it during the Civil Rights Movement in the 60's. It's been proven time and again throughout Human History. We don't need to be violent or unlawful. We just need to Unite with one common pupose.

"Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" - Patrick Henry

The Constitution outlines why it is necessary for American Citizens to unite to keep our Government in check. Our Forefathers understood man's nature to be swayed by power and greed. They saw firsthand what happens when Government gets "too big for their britches". Let me be clear, I DO NOT SUPPORT VIOLENCE OR BREAKING THE LAW. I support the inalienable rights provided by our Constitution!

" The Pen is Mightier than the Sword" - Edward Bulwer-Lytton

I implore all Americans. If you don't agree with what's been going on with our Government, PLEASE pick up that pen, or keyboard, and start writing. Write your particular representatives, sign the right petitions, contribute to blogs. Get your friends, relatives, co-workers, and anybody else with the same beliefs together. Discuss the situation. Create reasonable goals, that lead to larger goals, that will effect the changes we need.

If we remain divided, WE WILL FALL. There's no doubt about it. Congress supports our division because it keeps the power in their hands. Democrats bashing Republicans, Conservatives bashing Liberals, and all the while we're confused and unsure who to believe. I personally don't believe that Americans are one way or the other. Deep down we all want to be Free, Happy, Secure, and Alive. Once we ignore the labels we realize that Americans all have the same goal. It doesn't matter what your ethnicity, religion, political party, or background is. We're ALL HUMAN. In this country, We're ALL AMERICANS.

It's time to hold Congress accountable for it's actions. If you believe in Congressional Term Limits, or enacting a "Vote of No Confidence" for ALL POLITICIANS, let me know. I look forward to everyone's input. When I get enough people involved, I'll write the necessary petitions to get the ball rolling, with YOUR SUPPORT!!

God Bless America!!

Sic Sempur Tyrannis!!
