Call to Arms

I'm stumped. And I'm scared. The country I love and willing to die for is being fundamentally changed into something I don't recognize; where personal achievement and success is punished by the government. Where the very foundations of this nation are being destroyed by those who are sworn to protect her. Each and every member of Congress took an oath very similar to the one I took over and over during my military service; ...to SUPPORT and DEFEND the CONSTITUTION of the United States against ALL ENEMIES, foreign and DOMESTIC... The apathy of the American people is appalling. To let our elected officials get away with destroying the fabric of the greatest nation in the history of man, is sickening. The greed of the non-contributing citizen coupled with the guilt of many for achieving success while others fail, added to the power-drunk politicians equals an environment that could very well be the downfall of America as we know it.

Healthcare is the first step and if we don't get off our backsides and stop them right now, in their tracks, America will no longer be the "Shinning city on the hill" the world looks to in times of trouble. She will no longer be a beacon of truth and light to the down-trodden masses. Instead, she will become a used up whore.

It's time to stand up or stand aside. Pray endlessly for our country. Attend functions, campaign for worthy candidates and without fail, write, call and visit your representatives that voted or otherwise supported this disastrous legislation and let them know you will do everything in your power to see them run out of town on a rail.

God save us from our "representatives".

UPDATE

Bob Lonsberry has a great piece over at his site.

I'm worried about the slippery slope these non-representatives have placed us upon. I think the November elections will be most telling, providing a bellwether that will indicate if the majority of voters realize the true peril our way of life is now in.

Because if they don't, then Katie bar the door, because Obama, Reid, Pelosi, et al. will believe they have been ordained to determine how we will live.

BR, I agree 100%. By their actions I think they already do feel they are ordained to lord over us as they see fit.

I for one am doing everything I can to make sure that 22 Mar is the liberals day of infamy.

I can't believe this is happening but I'm not so stunned that I am in denial about it. This is serious shit.

How's that dawg? My dawg is sleeping. She knows more about the Constitution than those buffoons in D.C.

LOL HRD is a constitutional scholar compared to the buffoons (or more accurately buttoons) in DC.

Rude Doggy is getting on in years. He's still happy and my very favorite brown dog in the whole world, but the end may be soon in coming. He struggles with his arthritis. I think I'll write a post about him, to keep you updated. Thanks for asking!

Ohhh man, I'm so sorry to hear that. HRD has her "I'm stiff" stretching moments, to be sure. But she still THINKS she is a rowdy pup and demands activity. Mostly she wants us to go stand in the yard and watch her eat sticks. Hey, that's activity.

Rude1 said...

Heh, RD is still doing okay, it's just that he walks so stiff, and if he exerts himself too much, he feels it for days. I love watching him sit on the deck looking over the pasture like a Marine sentinel.

He doesn't eat many sticks these days; cat turds are his snack of choice lately!
