The American public is very dissatisfied with what we now have in Washington.  Polls show an approval rating for Congress around 20% and for the Bush Bunch not much better.  But can we get this corrupt gang out?   Yes, it can be done!  The real question is “will we do it?”


Would you agree that we should be trying to assure that our children and their children, America’s future, have a chance for a better life than that which we have been given?  A better life for our children should be the goal of all good American parents, and our parents really did set the bar high.  But for unexplained reasons our generation has squandered away much of what your and my parents and our Grandparents had worked so hard to set on the table for us.


The weird thing is that most Republican and Democrat registered voters are good caring people, it’s their Party Leadership that has let them down.  There are a few good Republican Leaders and there are a few good Democratic incumbents, but I refuse to support any Democrat or Republican who places their Party Loyalty above the welfare of the American people, and you know as well as I do that there are very damn few of either Party incumbents who will vote American instead of voting Party.  It has gotten so bad over the last 30 years that Washington politics now makes even the city garbage dump smell good.


We just got thru trying to correct the problem by moving Democrats to the majority based on their promise to force the Bush Bunch to live within the law – the Constitution.  But it didn’t happen, once the Democrats got in the majority, they have refused to put a stop to the Bush criminal actions, the war goes on, Bush and his bunch continue to ignore the laws and why don’t the Democrats act?  Think about it.  If they knock down all the self-serving structure the Bush Bunch has put in place, then they won’t get to rake in the illicit profits now that they’re in charge.  Looks to me like Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and it’s sure not easy to tell the difference.

I said it can be done, but the repair requires effort beyond just complaining.  We have to roll up our sleeves, commit to replacing the criminal gang in Washington, and not only expect, but know, that it will not be easy.  And we should be aware always that it won’t happen until sometime after we start the effort.  Trust also that there will be collateral damage along the way; we will make some wrong choices.  We will just have to overcome those errors.

I highly encourage all who want to effect a change in Washington to get organized. How can you do this?  First make your voice be heard.  The way to do this is to use the provided action links at the end of this article.  Your voice will be heard.   Second, target those of your representatives who have not stepped up to the plate to end corruption, violations of Constitutional law, and who have whinny excuses for not putting the brakes on the current malfeasance in the White House.  For example, whether you are represented by a Republican or Democrat, your affiliation makes no difference; you have the right to sound off to your representative.  Again, the link provided below will help you do that.  What you need to have is the get up and go to do it.  Now that we know what has to be done to get started, lets do it.  I’ve started by writing this article and providing the link (thanks to OpEdNews and The Pen for providing the technology to us).  But each individual must continue the ball rolling by using the link.  That’s Me. And You.

My goal is to help inspire electors who will find and elect Leaders that will respond to the will of the people.  Leaders that really will kick out the corrupt gang that has influence over everything in our daily lives.  Given time, patience, hard work, and a never give up attitude, we can put in place, a group of elected gentlemen and women who will return our Great Country to the rule of law - Constitutional Law, the Law our Founding fathers so reverently laid out for us; we will elect a group that will govern with moral intentions and who will dedicate themselves to bringing this country, America, back to the freedom and caring society that our parents and their parents sacrificed so much to create for us.  Don’t we owe to our ancestry the restoration of what they sweated and died for?  And don’t we owe even more to our children and their children who will have no choice but to inherit what we leave?


If we are vigilant and persistent in our efforts, someday in a school history class, one of our children, or more likely a Grandchild or their children, will be sitting in a school class learning about how the United States of America was restored to its former Glory, by concerned people who believed in the Constitution and application of the Golden Rule.  They will also be learning how to keep those things that are dear to us, safe from the predators who will yet be lurking just outside, out of the bright light, patiently waiting for us to let our guard down, hoping they can once again seize our country and hold it hostage while they systematically rob us of our heritage.


It just takes one person to start, but a multitude must quickly join the battle, now is the time to grab the moment.  If the Republican and Democrat parties are left unchecked, there may never again be this opportunity to regain our Government.  We will thru our inaction have placed ourselves in Political slavery.  We should never choose to be slaves.  


All I ask of you is to admit to yourself that you owe this labor to your parents and to your children, then get off your duff and go to work.  Contact your representatives.  Don’t be afraid to tell them you are going to vote them out beginning with primary voting if they don’t yield to the will of the people, especially you.  Tell them you are ready to make a change.  Use the link and send them your comments.  The mailing program is set up to notify your representative.  All you have to do is use the link.  If you agree with this concept we will be off and running.  And you will find that you can make a difference.


The cumulative effect of those who think like you, and who share your representatives is powerful.  But it is up to you because every last letter to them counts.  There is a lot to be done over the next few months.  I have provided you a means to connect with your leaders.  The first step has now been taken.  The next one is yours.
