One of the choices we as a free people have is to choose those who would serve in the government. We, as citizens would determine who would serve as our legislators and who would serve as our executive at all levels of government. Our founders warned us that we must take that choice and that responsibility very seriously. The founders stressed the importance of choosing people who had character and veracity. The founders warned us that those we elect will reflect and direct the moral compass of our nation. The founders were very clear that the type of nation they established; a nation of free individuals to prosper or to fail, to achieve or not, to live exemplary lives or not, would only remain free if the electorate elected good, upstanding, and moral people who cherished the good of the nation above their own personal ambitions. At times, we as an electorate have elected people meeting that criteria and the nation has flourished. At other times the electorate has failed in that effort, and the nation has suffered.
Those we have elected in the last election cycles have fallen into the category of failures. We have elected as our legislators, individuals who made promises to us, and then failed to even attempt to keep those promises. What we the electorate received were excuses and reasons as to why it was necessary to continue with business as usual. The electorate also chose an executive who did not have the good of the United States as his top priority. In fact, that executive’s primary goal is to diminish the achievements of the United States so we become a nation equal to all other nations. This executive believes the United States is an evil imperialist nation.
The consequences of the choices the electorate made have caused much suffering in our nation and have diminished our achievement. Our nation is in a state of decline, even worse than the decline we suffered during the Carter years.
We are in the process of again choosing our executive. Let us remember that we were told by our founders that we must choose individuals with outstanding character and veracity. Up to this point in the election cycle we are failing to heed that charge. When a vast majority of Americans are asked to describe the individual leading in the polls and the delegate count of one of the major parties, they use the words untrustworthy, dishonest, and liar. This individual is under a federal investigation for putting her needs before the security of the country. It would appear a Grand Jury has already been convened to consider an indictment. Yet, this individual is defended and praised by party spokespeople.
The leading candidate for the other party is the primary subject of a civil lawsuit alleging fraud. A superior court judge compared this charge of fraud to the Bernie Madoff scandal. This candidate also has a propensity to hurl personal insults at all who would ask him about his policies on issues important to the country, about his many inconsistencies, and about his progressive policy stances in the very recent past. This candidate also lacks character and veracity. This candidate exhibits all the characteristics and the maturity of a fifth grade school yard bully.
We Freedom Loving Americans understand our founders understood what was critical for us to maintain our freedom. Will we ignore their warnings once again? We have lost many of our freedoms over the last several years. Many of the freedoms protected in the Bill of Rights; speech, press, religion, right to own arms, and all the other rights granted to the people and the states per the 10th amendment are under heavy assault. It is these freedoms that are so critical to maintaining a free nation.
All is not lost. We Freedom Loving Americans can and must accept the responsibility to preserve our freedom for ourselves and future generations. Sam Adams, The Father of the American Revolution, told his fellow Freedom Loving Americans when their situation looked its bleakest, “It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”
We must do today what those brave Americans did prior to the victory at Yorktown; accept the full responsibility for America’s freedom. We must first put forth a candidate to be our executive who meets those basic criteria of an individual who has character and veracity. We must then rally behind that person and not rest a moment until that person becomes our next executive.
Our job, at that time will not be over but it will have just begun. We are in this position because we have not maintained our schools. Instead, we have allowed zealots to take control of the education of our children. Therefore, we must take control of school boards, and in all states we must do what Wisconsin did and take away the power from the Marxist controlled teacher unions.
In addition, we must elect Freedom Loving American’s to local, state and federal positions. This means that Freedom Loving Americans must not only become involved in campaigns, but they must be willing to be that candidate and then after elected serve with honor and distinction. Yes Freedom Loving Americans, we must be that tireless minority that is keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men. It was this commitment that enabled the establishment of a unique nation of free people and it will be this commitment that will restore that unique nation so its citizens remain free individuals.
We must only support individuals who wish to be servants of the people who are individuals of character and veracity. When that person is you, you must maintain those same traits before, during, and after your service to the people. After all, we are Freedom Loving Americans.
