What kind of Change are we getting?
With all the news stories and town hall meetings we have been hearing about it's hard not to get involved. I am becoming more and more upset with the lack of respect our leaders are showing to it's citizens. We are being ignored, criticized and ridiculed as ignorant. I find that scary and frustrating. I even went so far as to write a letter to my own Senator and received a nice pat on the head response. Saying "There, there I know better than you and no matter what you will do what I want in the end."
I am seeing my freedoms taken away everyday, and it seems with almost every vote I cast. What happened to the Founding Father's America? Where there was freedom from government oppression, religious freedom, and personal liberty.
Why am I posting about this? Because I want people to stand up for freedom and educate themselves. I know not everyone will have the same opinions and views, but we must be educated at the very least. And by educated I don't just mean watching the 5 o'clock news. I am going to challenge myself to become more educated on how this country was set up, and what the vision of the Founding Father's truly was. I hope you do the same.
I have also attached a post from Tammy at Time Flies. One link is about the Obama school speach (just a warning, there is one profanity in the post) and the other is a true story of a health care nightmare on our already established government health care (Medicaid). Take a minute and check them out.
I pledge allegiance to the Flag,
Of the United States of America,
And to the Republic for which it stands,
One Nation, Under God, Indivisible, with
Liberty and Justice for All.
I pledge to no other!
