A Call to Action

I was having dinner the other night when I opened my mouth and words popped out that I had not consciously put there until that very moment.   I certainly don't think that every unpremeditated thing I say is worth sharing, but I hope this is.   I heard myself saying:


            Do we realize what is happening right now?   Do we realize we are watching a major historical event, right now?    Do we know we are in the front row watching day by day the demise of a once great nation?   The great nation that used to be our country?   That the men and women we elected to represent us turned their backs on us and are hearing the siren song of other interests and are voting for oil, insurance, biotech, Rx drugs?


            The story is playing out right in front of our eyes.   Do we see it?   This is how it has been unfolding.   First action, buy out the media.   Done.   Second action, buy out a majority in Congress and infiltrate key government agencies like FDA and USDA.   Done.   Third, buy out the masses, or at least put them to sleep.   Done.


            At the same time we are seeing the valiant effort of the common man - common men and women - to stem the tide.   Commoners can't fight money with money.   Our pockets are empty.   But hundreds of thousands of us still have our minds, our voices, and our bodies and are putting minds and voices to use and boots on the ground.   Thousands more boots, dress shoes, and flops are needed.   Thousands more voices.   Hundreds of thousands.   The tide is strong.  


            We, the people, need to put our personal concerns aside for a time and fight the bigger fight.   Without a foundation of freedom, those personal concerns may be moot.


            I am watching and adding my voice.   I want to hear more voices.


            I'm betting on the common man and woman, but time is short.   We are in the final quarter.   How will it end?
