Today, I'd like to call attention to a letter read by Glenn Beck, on his TV show last evening. Mr. Beck reported that it was written by a 53 year-old lifelong Democrat, who really cannot find anyone in Washington that represents her and her concerns anymore. As Glenn read the letter, I could not help but think about how much we have been discussing these very same things, day after day, here on this blog.
Read the entire thing here.
Then, ask yourself something: Are these crooks truly representing you the way you feel they should? Can you honestly imagine what would happen if any of us performed in our jobs, the same kinds of actions these crooks have? I ask these questions because most of us would have been fired a long time ago and possibly sitting in a prison cell right now, if we would behave these people have. Each and every time something illegal or unethical happens to someone in Washington, nothing happens.
In a world where it takes four years of legal wrangling just get a William Jefferson (a man who was caught accepting bribes on tape and with cold cash in his freezer) on trial, it's no wonder the thugs running the government are empowered to do whatever the hell they want, whenever they want, without fear of reprisals. In Washington, the motto has become, "yeah, well, what are you going to do about it?" Whenever anyone asks one of the vermin leading the mess, why we need to do what they say, they in effect answer with a resilient, "because we said so".
Just as it was in the days of Jimmy Carter, a new age of apathy and malaise is beginning to set in. As it was in those days so may it be today, when the people rise up and declare, "enough is enough". That's why this just hearing and reading this letter is encouraging.
To think that I am the only person that sees this BS for what it is ridiculous. I am not, you are not. They, who are on the public dole in government, want us to believe we are.
America, it's time for a serious change to occur in this land, not just as a campaign slogan. It's time for Americans to stop allowing themselves to be categorized solely for the purpose of being demonized and denigrated, as ignorant anti-government extremists. It's time to show those arrogant SOBs who confiscate our hard earned money (to use on whatever vote-buying scam happens to be popular at the time), who they work for.
It's time to stop looking at ourselves as Democrats or Republicans, left or right; it's damned sure time to stop looking at ourselves as black, white, or other. It's time to start looking this thing as a case of us versus them. We are the people who the founding fathers sought to protect, from the very abuses we see so prevalent today. We are the nation, it belongs to us.
