Protect Democracy and Our Way of Life

Despicable Human Beings

I am tired of politicians using racism as a tool to separate people from the Republican Party, TEA Party efforts, and states trying to protect citizens from ILLEGAL immigration. Politicians who do this are despicable human beings and obviously have no conscience.

Using racism as a political tool is NOT “politics as usual”, as some people would have you think. This tactic is way out of bounds of ethical and we need to hold the offenders accountable!

The problem is the Elite in government who believe the peasants (that’s us) are easily influenced. They think that we can be manipulated to believe as they want us to believe and think as they tell us to think. We must inform them that they are wrong.

We are NOT ignorant and are perfectly capable of thinking for ourselves. With 24/7 access to the Internet and live reports, we find out what politicians do not want us to know. This is why they want control of the Internet, so they can control the information that we access.

We need to tell politicians who use racism as a tool that we know what they are doing, that we are offended by its use, and that we won’t tolerate it any longer. Even more important, they need to know that we think it is despicable to suggest racism when they know it’s a lie!

What type of person will use the evil of racism as a tool to divide people for political gain? It just goes to show that the Party using it is desperate and feels a need to use everything in their arsenal to reverse people’s attitudes toward them.

Being desperate is one thing, but hitting below the belt by accusing racism when they know it isn’t is shameful. I noticed the Democrat Party started doing this in the 2000 elections. They made claims that the Republican Party were racists because they tried to get in the way of black voters, which was completely a lie.

During that same time frame, I read a report by Associated Press that the Democrat Party told people to make racism claims, even if they had to lie, and say that Republicans tried to prevent them from voting. They stated that, even if it wasn’t true, to insinuate racism was enough.

I was disturbed by this report so I wrote to twenty-five newspaper editors in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I asked them to investigate racism claims and the supposed attempts of Democrats to sway votes by making false claims. I never heard a word back from any of them.

Then again we heard racism claims in the 2004 and 2008 elections. Although Obama’s race worked well for him in the 2008 elections, now the party thinks we are ignorant enough to believe race is the reason people disagree with him now.

Since when is it racism to disagree with a sitting President of the U.S.? The answer is, since Obama became President; even though race is what elected him. This just proves that race is used as a tool to persuade people or inflame situations.

Racism is unacceptable from any group of people, especially from politicians. It is an evil that only we can stop! Politicians using it as a tool make it much harder for the nation to get past injustices of the past. This is what makes these actions so despicable.

President Obama being black is NOT what has people upset with him today. They are angry about what he is doing to the country in only sixteen months and about being “hell bent” on fulfilling his vision for America–even though it is against the “Will of The People”. Also, they are angry because Democrat Representatives and the President have stopped listening to constituents.

The way to turn things around is to become informed citizens. Well-informed citizens know the truth and recognize when politicians use “spin” to cover up their deeds or to change the focus; in other words, they play the shell game.

The shell game is used to misdirect the observation of participants and fool them into believing the object (a pea, walnut, or acorn) is in one place when it is some place else. Being well-informed is the only way to prevent playing the shell game, reverse the situation, and change the direction of our nation.

It could very well be that false racism accusations can actually bring people together and bind us as a well-knit nation. Once people understand that race is NOT the real issue and that it is being used to divide us, they will see the immorality of such efforts. Recognizing this fact will hopefully be the demise of Liberal/Progressive Democrat’s reign and allow “Blue Dog” Democrats to surface again.

This is not suggesting that Republicans are the answer to current problems, they contributed a great deal to the situation, or that the TEA Party is an alternative to a two-party system. It means we need to pay closer attention to politics and become more involved, perhaps more than in the past, even when it may not be comfortable for us to do so.

We reached this point because too many of us have been complacent about our responsibilities or have turned our votes into a popularity contest. This type of irresponsibility has to stop! We need to be accountable and do the right thing now to change the situation we’ve created.

One way to be more accountable is to take a stand on protecting the values and principles on which the “Founding Fathers” established this nation. It will help if we remember that General Washington, who became President, said he accomplished what he did through the intervention of a supreme power. It is this same power that we need to intervene now.

Obviously, our nation has gone off track. We need to get back to our roots and adhere to past standards that made us a great and admirable nation. In addition, integrity in politics needs to be restored and choose representatives that hold firmly to core standards that represent a healthy society.

Drawing the line on how far politicians can go will stop the practice of hitting below the belt to win elections and tell past offenders that such actions in the future will be unacceptable.

The Democrat Party being desperate now is a good sign. It shows that they are vulnerable and that they recognize it…not that knowing this will change their bad behavior into good.

The bottom line here is that WE AS A UNITED FRONT must accept our own responsibility and, to the best of our abilities, help ourselves out of the hole we’ve dug before we are buried by the consequences. We owe that much to God, to those who died to give us the freedom we enjoy today, to those who are dieing now, and to future generations.

Remember these things in November when you make your decision to vote, and recognize that how you vote will impact the nation as a whole.

May God bless America, may it continue to be the Land of The Free and Home of The Brave.

May we have the courage to vote according to our conscience instead of by popularity or to grant selfish desires.

May we be given power of discernment so we see through the ploys of politicians and recognize their true intentions of the heart.

I pray that we may have the desire to change and that we will have the insight needed to make the changes that need to be made.

Is This How You Feel Too?

Did you see this email yet?  I just read it, even though it came on August 5th, 2009.  If you haven’t read it yet, please do. I would like to know if you agree with the message because I sure do. I am fed up with Washington and the career politicians that are no longer listening to the people. They don’t care what we want, they do as they please.  We have to use our voices and send letters like this one to our representatives that are not doing their jobs.  Those who are need to hear a thank you from us and tell them we appreciate what they do on our behalf.

Americans everywhere identify with this 53-year-old woman. She has given us a voice.  Once you read this, you may want to forward it to your friends…

GLENN BECK: I got a letter from a woman in Arizona.  She writes an open letter to our nation’s leadership:

I’m a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life.  Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me.  Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me.  The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in  Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me.  There must be someone.  Please tell me who you are.  Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you’re willing to fight for our Constitution as it was written.  Please stand up now.  You might ask yourself what my views and issues are that I would horribly feel so disenfranchised by both major political parties.  What kind of nut job am I?  Will you please tell me?

Well, these are briefly my views and issues for which I seek representation:

Oneillegal immigration. I want you to stop coddling illegal immigrants and secure our borders.  Close the underground tunnels.  Stop the violence and the trafficking in drugs and people.  No amnesty, not again.  Been there, done that, no resolution.  P.S., I’m not a racist.  This isn’t to be confused with legal immigration.

Two, the TARP bill, I want it repealed and I want no further funding supplied to it.  We told you no, but you did it anyway.  I want the remaining unfunded 95% repealed.  Freeze, repeal.

Three: Czars, I want the circumvention of our checks and balances stopped immediately.  Fire the czars.  No more czars.  Government officials answer to the process, not to the president.  Stop trampling on our Constitution and honor it.

Four, cap and trade. The debate on global warming is not over.  There is more to say.

Five, universal healthcare.  I will not be rushed into another expensive decision.  Don’t you dare try to pass this in the middle of the night and then go on break.  Slow down!

Six, growing government control. I want states rights and sovereignty fully restored.  I want less government in my life, not more.  Shrink it down.  Mind your own business.  You have enough to take care of with your real obligations. Why don’t you start there.

Seven, ACORN. I do not want ACORN and its affiliates in charge of our 2010 census. I want them investigated.  I also do not want mandatory escrow fees contributed to them every time on every real estate deal that closes. Stop the funding to ACORN and its affiliates pending impartial audits and investigations.  I do not trust them with taking the census over with our taxpayer money.  I don’t trust them with our taxpayer money.  Face up to the allegations against them and get it resolved before taxpayers get any more involved with them.  If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, hello.  Stop protecting your political buddies.  You work for us, the people.  Investigate.

Eight, redistribution of wealth. No, no, no.  I work for my money.  It is mine. I have always worked for people with more money than I have because they gave me jobs.  That is the only redistribution of wealth that I will support.  I never got a job from a poor person.  Why do you want me to hate my employers?  Why — what do you have against shareholders making a profit?

Nine, charitable contributions. Although I never got a job from a poor person, I have helped many in need.  Charity belongs in our local communities, where we know our needs best and can use our local talent and our local resources.  Butt out, please.  We want to do it ourselves.

Ten, corporate bailouts. Knock it off.  Sink or swim like the rest of us.  If there are hard times ahead, we’ll be better off just getting into it and letting the strong survive.  Quick and painful.  Have you ever ripped off a Band-Aid?  We will pull together.  Great things happen in America under great hardship.  Give us the chance to innovate.  We cannot disappoint you more than you have disappointed us.

Eleven, transparency and accountability. How about it?  No, really, how about it?  Let’s have it.  Let’s say we give the buzzwords a rest and have some straight honest talk.  Please try — please stop manipulating and trying to appease me with clever wording.  I am not the idiot you obviously take me for.  Stop sneaking around and meeting in back rooms making deals with your friends.  It will only be a prelude to your criminal investigation.  Stop hiding things from me.

Twelve, unprecedented quick spending. Stop it now.   Take a breath. Listen to the people.  Let’s just slow down and get some input from some nonpoliticians on the subject.  Stop making everything an emergency.  Stop speed reading our bills into law. I am not an activist.  I am not a community organizer. Nor am I a terrorist, a militant or a violent person.  I am a parent and a grandparent.  I work.  I’m busy.  I’m busy.  I am busy, and I am tired.  I thought we elected competent people to take care of the business of government so that we could work, raise our families, pay our bills, have a little recreation, complain about taxes, endure our hardships, pursue our personal goals, cut our lawn, wash our cars on the weekends and be responsible contributing members of society and teach our children to be the same all while living in the home of the free and land of the brave.

I entrusted you with upholding the Constitution.  I believed in the checks and balances to keep from getting far off course.  What happened? You are very far off course.  Do you really think I find humor in the hiring of a speed reader to unintelligently ramble all through a bill that you signed into law without knowing what it contained?  I do not.  It is a mockery of the responsibility I have entrusted to you.  It is a slap in the face.  I am not laughing at your arrogance. Why is it that I feel as if you would not trust me to make a single decision about my own life and how I would live it but you should expect that I should trust you with the debt that you have laid on all of us and our children.  We did not want the TARP bill.  We said no.  We would repeal it if we could.  I am sure that we still cannot.  There is such urgency and recklessness in all of the recent spending.

From my perspective, it seems that all of you have gone insane.  I also know that I am far from alone in these feelings.  Do you honestly feel that your current pursuits have merit to patriotic Americans?  We want it to stop.  We want to put the brakes on everything that is being rushed by us and forced upon us.  We want our voice back.  You have forced us to put our lives on hold to straighten out the mess that you are making. We will have to give up our vacations, our time spent with our children, any relaxation time we may have had and money we cannot afford to spend on you to bring our concerns to Washington .  Our president often knows all the right buzzword is unsustainable.  Well, no kidding.  How many tens of thousands of dollars did the focus group cost to come up with that word? We don’t want your overpriced words. Stop treating us like we’re morons.

We want all of you to stop focusing on your reelection and do the job we want done, not the job you want done or the job your party wants done.  You work for us and at this rate I guarantee you not for long because we are coming.  We will be heard and we will be represented. You think we’re so busy with our lives that we will never come for you?  We are the formerly silent majority, all of us who quietly work, pay taxes, obey the law, vote, save money, keep our noses to the grindstone and we are now looking up at you.  You have awakened us, the patriotic spirit so strong and so powerful that it had been sleeping too long.  You have pushed us too far.  Our numbers are great.  They may surprise you.  For every one of us who will be there, there will be hundreds more that could not come.  Unlike you, we have their trust.  We will represent them honestly, rest assured.  They will be at the polls on voting day to usher you out of office.  We have cancelled vacations.  We will use our last few dollars saved.  We will find the representation among us and a grassroots campaign will flourish.  We didn’t ask for this fight.  But the gloves are coming off.  We do not come in violence, but we are angry.  You will represent us or you will be replaced with someone who will. There are candidates among us when he will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes that you have made of our constitution.

Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian.  Understand this.  We don’t care. Political parties are meaningless to us.  Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and our Constitution and that is all that matters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and seek more.  It is not your power.  It is ours and we want it back.  We entrusted you with it and you abused it.  You are dishonorable.  You are dishonest.  As Americans we are ashamed of you.  You have brought shame to us. If you are not representing the wants and needs of your constituency loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, you will be fired.  Did you hear?  We no longer care about your political parties. You need to be loyal to us, not to them.  Because we will get you fired and they will not save you.  If you do or can represent me, my issues, my views, please stand up.  Make your identity known.  You need to make some noise about it. Speak up.  I need to know who you are.  If you do not speak up, you will be herded out with the rest of the sheep and we will replace the whole damn congress if need be one by one.  We are coming.  Are we coming for you?  Who do you represent? What do you represent?  Listen.  Because we are coming.  We the people are coming.
