If We Win
An Essay of Ideas: If We Win November 2
The rising has begun. The fire is stoked. Men and women of good will are coming together. Less offense caused the Boston Tea Party to take form for patriots to vent their anger on December 16, 1773. It is far more than high taxes that have riled us. It is the control. It is the bad courts. It is the bad education system in areas where unions control the system--and damage our children. It is the corruption in every length, corner, and office inside what were once halls of honor. It is the "government-sponsored" media. It is the confiscation of freedoms—very real, very true. It is illegal immigration not something else as defined by our domestic enemies. It is the attempts at quashing of free speech. It is the waste of our money on corrupt receivers by the so-called stimulus. It is the flood for and of fools that the collectivists—the lying and hateful left, opened to watch it cover the land. There is a growing fire in the hearts of clear thinking Americans. Americans have begun to rage against the socialist flood of nonsense though that will meet the flood head-on and with God's help, it cannot be extinguished.
We may be busy with family and work and we may not know each other by sight but we do know each other in that way of connection shared when freedom is the thought. We know each other in the way people share the common thread of disgust over what some people say and do that affect the peace and truth. We know each other in that way of respecting the active duty military and the veterans of our wars. We know each other in our understanding of the place faith has for us—to one degree or another—we must stop making religious people feel as though their views are not welcome in any public debate. We know each other in the way we agree that when Harvard and other so-called institutions of higher learning bans ROTC while at the same time sponsors “gay” groups and the like, are not very interested in the advancement of our society. We know each other for what is right and what is wrong. Thank you, Heir Kagan.
The issues will cause us to refuse more bad politicians the opportunity to accumulate seniority. They will cause us to buy carefully—avoiding GE and sponsors of the pap broadcasted on MSNBC. It will cause us to push for bills—new, but old bills—in the Congress to return our country to a Constitutional Representative Republic. It will cause us to have the ability and move the impeachment of judges who stray away from the law and invent new law because that is what they want. It will cause us to re-think what universities we send dollars to—in the form of our children’s tuition for attending and from endowments—a college President’s favorite word aside from “government grants.”
In my view, we should think twice about sending any lawyer to our State houses or to office at the Federal level. I hope more of us do. We have seen the results. Many of us have been torn over the idea of term limits but the abuse and corruption has been so severe, it is time for a complete change-out. It is time to close K-Street down—not through a direct fiat of law—but by making it against the law for a representative to see anyone, anytime while not in the presence of a group of constituents. These voters should be chosen much like jury duty—to serve the district for a period to make sure the person sent to Congress is not working against the interests of that district.
We should have the ability to fire teachers and principles when they demonstrate incompetence. The number of cases that would meet this criterion would number in the thousands. They are our schools. As it was in the past, the community hired and fired based on results. We should return to that.
The first—the very first—thing we must do is pray for our country. The second most important thing we must do is turn out at the polls, everywhere, every time, and elect our own people—not professional politicians. Then we must remain vigilant and demand better government at every level. Thirdly, we have to do the work of citizens.
It is our country too. Why shouldn’t we take her back to common sense and prosecute corruption? Are we not very tired of the Congressional protection racket where they cover for each other on such a level that rare it is when one of them is held to account for their law breaking? Even the Jefferson case out of New Orleans has taken years—lawyers protecting lawyers. Washington is a gigantic, sad joke now and only we—the American public—can change that. I am confident that there are millions of men and women who has endured the flood long enough and will fight it with the fire of truth, the strength of spirit, and the endurance of hearts dedicated to freedom.
This time in our history, I—we—have every reason to be confident that the millions will make the changes necessary to recover from our amnesia and reject the phony medicine that has been sold to us one tax at a time. Our voices will not fall on deaf ears any longer, as we petition, show, and write—as we expose and humiliate—as we effect prosecutions by our demands of accountability for Congress too—they are not above the law and it is up to us to push the bureaucracies to act. Our strongest advantage and most effective work are found in by actions we take. We are off the sofa. We are part of the public domain and demand our own representatives to move against the largess. We should quickly direct the FBI and Justice Department to get busy and do their job in every instance of corruption—whether at the polls, at K-Street, and government contracts to family members.
Free the thousands of youths incarcerated for next to nothing and use the space for politicians who have stolen from us.
