As election day drew near, where was the president’s apology to the American people?
By: Marie Jon'
As the Nov. 2 election drew near, I went over in my mind what it was that made me a Republican. Contrary to the way the mainstream media tries to portray Republicans, we do love our country and prize the American Dream.
Anyone â€” no matter what creed or color, whether male or female â€” can succeed if they try. Work hard and you’ll be able to make it happen. You too can wear the gold ring of success. Of course, some will gain more than others â€” depending on the definition of success, and of happiness â€” but your fellow conservative countrymen, beginning with Republicans, are cheering you on, encouraging you to grasp and take hold of this vision!
America is a melting pot of the teeming masses. We’ve come here from all over the world because the United States is the best country in which to live. People come to America mainly because they want to avail themselves of our freedoms and liberties. The words “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” appeal to the hearts of all of mankind.
Every American has a family tree that points to their ancestors who originally came from distant lands. Mine came from Italy and France. When they arrived at Ellis Island, they wanted to be Americans wholeheartedly. They quickly learned the language and embraced their new surroundings. They were humble people who were ready to roll up their sleeves and become an asset to their new home and society. They did not possess today’s entitlement mentality, as seems to prevail in the minds of many new arrivals.
Unfortunately, too many who’ve been born here now take our country for granted. We should have had many more people voting in the mid-term election. When we consider what was at stake, it’s astounding that more citizens didn’t vote. As a nation, we’re not out of the woods by any means, despite the Tea Party’s successes Nov. 2. Everything that’s been perpetrated upon this nation in recent years must be undone in quick order by those we’ve sent to do the people’s will.
Subversion in high places
Within two years of President Barack Hussein Obama’s media-abetted rise of power, we’ve come very close to seeing our great nation transformed by him and his progressive cohorts and hand-picked Czars into an authoritarian socialist regime.
The Democratic Party is no longer your grandpa’s political brand. The party can best be described as Marxists, Socialists, and Communists. We saw everything needed to confirm this at the recent “One Nation, Working Together” rally, which was supported and promoted by the president’s political organizing group, Organizing for America.
As election day drew near, where was the president’s apology to the American people for such blatant promotion of unsustainable socialism? Nearly every hand-held sign and banner was un-American and demoralizing.
Excerpts from “Obama organizing group pushes liberal march next weekend,” published Sept. 25 by the Hill â€”
“President Obama’s political organizing group is throwing its hat in the ring of increasingly popular marches in Washington D.C. as it pushed supporters on Saturday to attend next weekend’s rally on the National Mall.
Organizing for America, the Democratic Nation Party Committee’s group that lauds Obama’s legislative policies, sent out the e-mail blast advertising the Oct. 2 One Nation, Working Together rally as ‘the biggest progressive demonstration in decades.’
“The Democratic march, to be held less than five weeks before Congress’s midterm elections, is an attempt to galvanize support for policies enacted in this Congress, such as the healthcare bill, the stimulus bill, and other key priorities trumpeted by Obama.” Full Article
‘A republic, if you can keep it’
Unabashed subversives in the media who cross all lines of responsible journalism should be investigated by the House, I believe. They need to be exposed. Our nation can no longer survive with a media that systematically engages in pure propaganda. They’re bought and paid for by the fifth column. Mr. George Soros has helped to destabilize other countries, and he wants to do the same to ours.
When you think about our fledgling nation and the words that were uttered by a woman to one of our founders, it’s truly a miracle that we’ve lasted this long. She asked Benjamin Franklin to explain the type of government the Constitution was bringing into existence. He replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.”
Our president is attempting to put into place a system that will steal from those who are making a decent living and give the products of their labor over to others. My work ethic has taught me better. I’ve earned everything I own. We’ve had enough of this Marxist ideal of redistributing wealth through governmental theft.
It’s unconstitutional. The government’s role is to “promote the general welfare” of the nation through securing individual liberty (see the Preamble to the Constitution) â€” not engage in “collectivist welfare schemes” that subvert that liberty.
Self-reliance vs. slavery
Arguably, there is a time and place for our government to provide limited relief where truly needed. But let’s understand that lines of demarcation are to be drawn and not exceeded. There was a time when Americans took care of their own families and, if needed, turned to private and religious charities. As a result, we were a better and stronger people. We relied on ourselves, not government intervention, which eventually reaches out its tentacles to strangle the breath of life out of the recipients.
President Obama’s socialist agenda has added more to our national debt in his first 19 months than all presidents from Washington through Reagan combined. Through its outrageous spending sprees, the Obama administration has increased the federal debt by $2.5 trillion. What have the American people gotten for all this? There are no new jobs and the cost of living keeps going up and up. We’re headed for hyper-inflation.
Who in their right minds would consider putting the Democrats back into office come 2012? We are going to have to watch every politician we’re sending to Washington. We can no longer lay our heads on our pillow at night thinking we can allow some other citizen to worry about the direction our country is going. It has become our responsibility to hold every Conservative, Libertarian, and Republican accountable to finish the job we sent them to do, or else.
Let’s hope there’s change
Let it be known that I am a constitutional conservative. I’m also aware and proud of the successful gains our nation has made this past week. With an optimistic caution, we will give the Republican Party another chance. They must keep their promise to restore limited government that reflects America’s center-right leanings. “We The People” want free enterprise to flourish. We want ObamaCare completely repealed and replaced with a national program that befits our benevolent country and its people.
Our mid-term elections are being touted as historic. On Veterans Day, November 11th, freedom and liberty will once again be brought to the forefront. Give a salute to our troops whether they are serving in Afghanistan or Iraq. They and our veterans are heroes. Without their valor and bloodshed, none of us would be free.
