We Elected Them

“The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.” – First Inaugural Address, April 30, 1789

They look down their noses at us, we the people, their constituents, the ones who entrusted them to represent us.

They say that they know better than us. They say that they have our best interests firmly in their sights.

They pass legislation that we rail against. They sponsor town hall meetings and then lock out those who criticize them. They won’t take our phone calls and then turn off their phones when their voice mail is full.

They pay themselves six-figure salaries every year and they vote for their own raises.

They vote not to issue COLA increases for those eligible to receive back the funds that they paid into the system.

And we elected them.

They propose to heal Mother Earth, with taxation.

They propose to provide health care to every citizen, with taxation.

They propose to provide jobs for every citizen, with taxation.

They propose to force compassion, with taxation.

And we elected them.

They mock our Constitution. They say that it is a document of negative rights. They ignore the words that limit their power and cry foul the ones that provide citizens rights.

We allow them to control us. They propose to control us further with more taxation. Their tyranny is not petty. It is grandiose.

And we elected them.

They quadruple the national deficit in 12 months. Their justification for this is stating that the previous administration increased the deficit, too. Does it matter who added what? And wasn’t one of the rallying calls for change tied to how much the previous administration spent?

They double the spending for the Census every ten years. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,…. Why does it cost so much to count to 300 or so million?

They propose to stimulate the economy with an allocation of three billion dollars for Cash for Clunkers. On top of the purchase price paid by the buyer, each car sold cost the taxpayer $24,000.

They copiously fund corrupt organizations such as ACORN. Do you know from where those funds are derived? Have you looked at your pay stub recently?

And we elected them.

They called it the President’s War during the last administration. Now it is the Good War.

They say that this country is no longer a Christian Nation. They bow low before foreign dignitaries.

They appoint a treasury secretary who didn’t pay his taxes.

They appoint a science czar who wrote a book in support of forced abortions, sterilizing citizens by introducing drugs into the water system, and implementing an armed international police force to assume control of the global economy.

They appoint other czars of questionable commitment to anything but their own radical agenda.

And we elected them.

They say the banks are too big to fail and so prop them up with our tax dollars.

They say the car companies are too big to fail and so prop them up with our tax dollars.

They tell us how wonderful the government is as an employer, and prop up their unions with their support. If the government is so wonderful to work for, why do their employees require union representation?

And we elected them.

They insist that we need a legislative act to force us to be respectful of the environment.

Among other things, they deem that the citizen must purchase special environmentally friendly light bulbs that cost two or three times the cost of regular light bulbs.

Meanwhile, the president flies his wife across the country often for “date night.”

The former Vice President uses more energy in a month than the average citizen uses in a year. For this, he is awarded the Nobel Peace prize for his environmental crusades.

The Speaker of the House uses her personal jet to fly her family across the country.

And we elected them.

They stand for compassion.

They stand for humanity.

They stand for Mother Earth.

They stand for welfare, for unions, for undocumented workers and illegal aliens, all at the expense of the American taxpayer.

Who honors the Citizen? Who honors freedom,  liberty,  and  your pursuit of happiness? Who honors the Constitution?

Who honors your freedom of speech? (Against tyranny?)

Who honors your right to bear arms? (Against tyranny?)

Who honors your right to refuse quarter to a soldier of the state? (Against tyranny?)

Who honors your right to privacy? (Against tyranny?)

Who honors your right to not be held to answer for a capital crime without the indictment of a Grand Jury, or to not be put twice in jeopardy of life or limb for the same offence, or to be called to be a witness against yourself, or to have your private property confiscated by the state? (Against tyranny?)

Who honors your right to a criminal trial by jury and to proper representation in such? (Against tyranny?)

Who honors your right to civil trial by jury? (Against tyranny?)

Who honors your right to reasonable bail and cruel and unusual punishment? (Against tyranny?)

Who honors all your other rights? (Against tyranny?)

Who protects your state from the federal government? (Against tyranny?)

We must revisit tyranny for surely it is upon us. We must remind them of our power for surely they have forgotten.

Will We Re-Elect Them?


State of the Union

Posted January 28, 2010 by Sterling

‘No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.’- Ronald Reagan

I just finished reading the Narcissist in Chief’s State of the Union Address from last evening. No, I didn’t watch it on television. Yes, I’ve seen snippets of it on every news channel from Fox to CNBC. The overall context of the speech, as I interpret it, is that we need more Obama in our lives, now more than ever before. He is still the one for whom we’ve been waiting. Yadda, yadda, yadda. I, we, us, I, I, me, my, and mine. It’s all about Obama, and he is the only one who can save us from ourselves.

This man, who has no background in this country of ours, who was not raised here, who did not form even one of his life’s opinions on American soil, proposes to ”feel our pain.” To understand the little guy who can’t find a job. To fret over the teacher who may lose her job. To understand a small business owner who can’t float a loan to sustain his business. He’s spent the majority of his brief time in office talking scathingly of the banking industry, the automobile industry, the insurance industry, and Wall Street, and how they’re all out to hurt the little guy and he’s not going to put up with it, so he’s instituting all kinds of new rules, regulations, laws, and taxes to punish them for their bad policies and make them toe the line. After spending his first twelve months in office denigrating these industries and harping on their corporate greed, and crying over what the previous administration left him, he stands there innocently, scratching his head, wondering why our economy didn’t jump up and improve, the very minute he said it should.

He says that he never said that change was going to be easy, or that he could do it alone. Well, it hasn’t been easy for Americans to swallow, and he did have far more help than we expected to plunge us into head first into his Progressive agenda. While there is precious little to celebrate at this point, you can bet that he will be there ready to stand with his head cocked and his chin raised, to take all of the credit for whatever improvement may be identified. Until then, he will continue to blame everyone else, including his fellow elected officials, and especially the former administration, for all that is wrong.

Many say this president is out of touch with America. I argue that one can not lose what one never had. This foreigner can not be expected to understand the depth of feeling that defines every American. He’s not an American, not in his heart. Why do you think it’s so hard for him to find his heart when he hears the National Anthem? Why do you think it’s so easy for him to bow to the leaders of foreign lands? Why do you think it was so easy to make fun of Scott Brown because he drives a pickup truck? He is not one of us. He does not understand freedom or liberty as the average American does. He was raised in a foreign country, and when he did come to this country, it was to go directly to the hallowed halls of big education, to be indoctrinated further into the liberal-elite mindset of educators.

This passage in his speech speaks to his thoughts on our Constitution. I read not one reference nor did I hear any pundit comment on these words: “Abroad, America‘s greatest source of strength has always been our ideals. The same is true at home. We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal, that no matter who you are or what you look like, if you abide by the law you should be protected by it, that if you adhere to our common values you should be treated no different than anyone else.” While I appreciate the reference to that great document, I question his wording of “the notion that we are all created equal,” and “that if you adhere to our common values, you should be treated no different than anyone else.” The Constitution does not directly address equality of men, and as I remember from the Declaration of Independence, there was no notion of the equality of all men; rather, there was a declaration of equality of all men. Nor was I aware that the Constitution protected our common values. The Constitution outlines the definitions of government and frames the rights of the individual people of the land. Notions and common values. Is this what our leader thinks of the rights and privileges which are preserved by our founding documents?

I fear that to him and his friends, we are the little people, the ones who pay for the likes of him and his minions. There are so many of us that to have won our vote is to have won control. To control all of us is the gateway to unlimited power and resources. Does that sound familiar to you? He’s only just begun to taste it. He is the one for whom we have waited. He is the one who will change America. And he was telling the truth; he has changed America. We are less free today than we were a year ago.  Are we going to do anything about that?

Bold Questions

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.” Thomas Jefferson

We have become slaves to our government. Our country’s capital is now occupied by individuals who want to take away as many of our freedoms as they can, legally or otherwise. How did it happen? When did it happen? On whose watch did it occur? Why wasn’t there an outcry? Why isn’t everyone angry? When will it end?

I’ve said many times that this is not about Republican versus Democrat or Conservative versus Liberal. It’s not even simply capitalism and free market against Socialism or Communism, although the tools of the latter are being used aggressively against the former. Our immediate problem is that our president is presenting us to the world as broken and apologetic for our exceptionalism. He does not appear to miss any opportunity to apologize for our country or to disrespect her, depending upon the country he’s visiting this week. Our president was elected to lead America, but he isn’t leading America, he’s organizing America. He is aggressively organizing America into the haves and have-nots. Rather than recognize and foster the great spirit of individualism that has made America the greatest country in the world, he is disseminating each of us. He is minimalizing the quality of America to our lowest common denominator. He is organizing us for a takeover from within, in order to appease the world.

I keep hearing pundits and posters on blogs say that the President is improving America’s image around the world. The world loves us again. I’m not saying that that’s a bad thing, but I must ask, in light of the problems that Americans are facing every day, how does that help us? Does that mean that our President is so loved in the world that no one in the world endeavors to do us harm? Are we guaranteed that there will never be another 9/11? Does that mean that we will all have jobs? That we can make our mortgage? Or our car payment? How about being able to send our kids to college? Or something so simple as having a night out to celebrate the work week being over? Without depending on the government to help with any of these, I might add. How many of you have worried about those problems?

We exercise our freedom of speech and we are assaulted by accusations of racism, ignorance, and close-mindedness. When did it become acceptable to bully any American for their opinion? Was freedom of speech not a principal upon which our country was founded? When, in the history of our country, was it acceptable to accuse a person of racism for disagreeing with the President? Can you only be a racist if you’re white? I think maybe one year ago, the answer to that question was yes. But now, persons of color are being accused of racism for disagreeing with the President’s policies. It’s not about black or white. The occupiers are smart enough to capitalize upon our country’s history of strained race relations, and try to make us believe that this is what is going on. And when so confronted, most of us are sensitive enough to stop for a moment and question ourselves. We replay the words in our head, trying to make sure that we did not sound racist, or bigoted in any way. And that’s just enough for the accuser to pounce and further undermine our opinion.

These strangers who are occupying our country are working from a playbook that most of us have not heard of, much less utilized. There really is an orchestrated plan among them to marginalize those who do not think as they do. This is their game plan. They are trying to break us from within. It’s time to understand that this is not Republicans against Democrats. It’s time to stand up for what you believe in. In fact, it’s time to start fighting for what you believe in. If we as individuals are unwilling to make even the smallest sacrifices for what we believe, then how can we expect others to stand up for us?

Thomas Paine said that a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right. I think it’s time that we start calling wrong, wrong. Do not let anyone silence you. Shout it from the rooftops, if you must. When did we forget that we fund every activity that powers the people in our capital?  These occupiers are only there at our direction. They are only funded with our money. When are we going to take back this power? When are we going to cut their purse strings? Is this not our country? What are we waiting for? Will we continue to let them betray us and insult us? Are we willing to go so easily into their prison of perpetual tyranny? Will our complacency foster more usurpation from them? Will we continue to be assuaged with their false promises? Will we lay in repose while they march us into slavery? Will we give up our hard-earned freedoms so easily? Are we such willing prisoners to their power?  Is not the power our own? When will we reclaim it? If not now, when?

“No man in his senses can hesitate in choosing to be free, rather than a slave.” –Alexander Hamilton

Will We Let Them Have It All?

Posted November 4, 2009 by Sterling
Categories: Uncategorized

Question posed at the end of the Constitutional Convention of 1787: “Well, Doctor, what have got, a Republic or a Monarchy?” To which Benjamin Franklin responded, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

Pull out your copy of the Constitution of the United States of America. Don’t have one? Get one. Can’t find one? Shame on you. They’re everywhere. Still can’t find one? Read it here: http://www.constitution.org/constit_.htm Read it carefully; it won’t take you that long. Take your time, I’ll wait….

I want you to read the entire document, just to refresh yourself on how insightful our founding fathers were, but I want you to pay particular attention to Article I, Section VIII. I ask you, where in this document does it give the federal government the power to take over your health care? Can you find that language anywhere? Neither can I.

The time for being nice is over. I’ve pleaded, I’ve begged, I’ve worn you all out with nice little words about freedom, democracy, and our republic. In less than three days, Congress is going to vote yet again to take over every American’s health care. The simple fact of the situation that we now find ourselves in with the federal government is that the only thing that is protecting each and every one of us from total tyranny from this government is the Constitution. If it succeeds in taking over our health care, something that is not mentioned at all in this document, then what will stop them from taking over every other aspect of your life? Think long and hard about your answer. They’ve already taken over the banking industry. They’ve taken over most of the automobile industry. They’re working tirelessly to take over the air we breathe and the water, gas, and electricity available to us through their it-would-be-hilarious-if-it-weren’t-deadly-serious Cap and Trade charade. What else will they take from us after they’ve burst through the health care ceiling? What else will we let them take from us?

Their goal is to control every aspect of your existence so that you depend upon them for everything. For your job, your home, your very life. Are you going to just lie there and let them have it? I’m keeping this piece short and simple because I don’t want you to read my words. I want you to write your own and speak your own. Pick up the phone and call your representatives. Fire up your e-mail and send them a letter. If you have the means, go to the Capital Building on Thursday this week and take the tour with Representative Michele Bachmann and meet your representatives face-to-face and tell them what will happen to their job if they vote for nationalized health care.

Again I say, this is not about health care. This is about control of sixteen percent of the United States economy. This is about control of one hundred percent of the American people. Will you let them have it all?


Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid

“The Founding Fathers knew a government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing.” Ronald Reagan, A Time For Choosing Speech, 1964

The current presidential administration has admitted that they control the information that is given to the press. That’s not necessarily any different than previous administrations, but the difference today is that even though they won’t admit it, the press receives information from this administration as gospel, as if delivered by Moses himself from Mt. Sinai, and as such, not open to interpretation. There is no research. There is no investigation. There is no disagreement. There is in fact, no journalistic integrity, imagined or practiced. And that’s all fine and good in Imaginary Land, where the leaders are all honest and virtuous and strong of heart and pure of soul. But here in the real world, specifically, in 2009 America, it’s not good at all and it is in fact, very frightening.

The president’s mouthpieces took to the airways this last week to express concern and disdain about the Fox News Network. They have opined that Fox News is nothing more than an arm of the Republican Party. The President’s Chief of Staff went on to say that he doesn’t want other news organizations to follow Fox’s lead. We can imagine why. Fox News doesn’t present the president’s policies as manna from heaven. There are commentators there who do, but there are also commentators who aren’t afraid to express their disagreement. Please note that I am not defending Fox News in any way, other than to point out that they do present more than one side to a story, and more than one opinion. I’ll admit that that’s a pretty large compliment, considering what the rest of the media is presenting on a daily basis.

I’ve said it before, and I guess that it’s worth repeating: This is not about left or right. This is not about Democrat or Republican, Liberal or Conservative. This is about a free press freely reporting facts and events as they happen, not as they would wish you to believe they happened. Yes, we know that the press has leaned liberal for many years, but that notwithstanding, whatever you believe about President Richard M. Nixon, the deeds he committed while in office were exposed by a free and open press. He was made to be honest in answer to the research done by dedicated journalists who were willing to invest the time and effort of doing the research. This example could be reduced to a liberal press going after a Republican president, but the point is that the president, whether Republican or Democrat, was guilty of most of the things that the journalists exposed.

So what happens when a liberal press works with a liberal President? Who’s going to keep who honest if the press doesn’t question anything the President does or does not do, and in fact, seems to go all out to protect him from any criticism? I’m not suggesting that our President is doing anything wrong or illegal. Of course I’m not going to tell you that I believe he’s not doing anything wrong, either, but the point of this article is to ask you, how would you know if he or anyone in his staff had doing or is doing anything wrong, if the press was not informing you of it? Do you want to live in that world? Do you want to be controlled by that administration? Does this frighten you in the least? That you may be led to believe what you see on the news or read in the paper, by what a complicit media chooses for you to believe?

These stories about the President trying to discredit Fox News come on the heels of a rumor that there may be some form of government censorship over internet content and usage. That’s the most frightening facet of this story. If Fox News is censored, and the other news outlets have complete control over what you are hearing, and the internet is controlled by the government, where are you going to get your news? Where will you turn for information when the government controls all the information?  Are you afraid yet? Or do you think that this is a fanciful piece written by someone who doesn’t agree with the President’s policies? Someone with an agenda? And that it would be fine if you never read this, or had to consider any of the points made here, or had to worry about anybody else getting the opportunity to read something like this? Is that really the world in which we want to live?

The above quote from Mr. Reagan is from the year 1964. Yes, that’s correct: 1964. It is excerpted from a speech that you can read in its entirety here: http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/1964reagan1.html Please read the entire speech. The time for choosing has come. I choose freedom of speech, freedom of press, life, and liberty. What will you choose?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. — 1st Amendment to the United States Constitution

Be Bolder

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.“- Thomas Jefferson

The assault on American morals and values continues. The unrepresentative representatives continue openly in their quest to seize all power from the people. After weeks of sometimes contentious town hall meetings where every day Americans have expressed their anger and fear over a poorly designed piece of health care legislation that is being marketed as health care reform, Charles Rangel, D-NY recently said that bias and prejudice are fueling the opposition to health care reform. He went on to say, “Some Americans have not gotten over the fact that Obama is President of the United States. They go to sleep wondering, ‘how did this happen?'” This is a member of the United States House of Representatives, stating out loud, in front of God and everybody, that anyone who opposes the health care control bill is a racist. When you can’t get your way, marginalize the opponents, any way you can. Even if they are the people that elected you to your current position.

House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers, D-MI recently said, in regards to criticism from the people that congressional members had not even read the bill that they voted for, “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?” If Mr. Conyers’ own extensive legal background is not enough to comprehend this thousand page monstrosity without the aid of two more lawyers, then either Mr. Conyers is not qualified to hold his position as the House Judiciary Chairman, or the bill is flawed as written and needs to be overhauled. Or maybe both.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-CA penned a column with one of her colleagues where she called Americans who were critical of the health care bill “un-American.” She and her colleague also said that an  ugly campaign is afoot to misrepresent the legislation, disrupt the public meetings and prevent members of Congress from conducting a civil dialogue on the topic. She also recently said, “Do you think there’s legitimate grass-roots opposition going on here? I think they are Astroturf . . . you be the judge. They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare.” This of course is the complete opposite of her thoughts on protesting when the protesters fit into her view of the war on terror, when she said this, back in 2006, to a group of war protesters who interrupted a meeting, “It’s always exciting. This is democracy in action. I’m energized by it, frankly.” And at another event in 2007, she said,  “just go for it, I respect your enthusiasm.” Perhaps Ms. Pelosi should heed her own words and respect the enthusiasm of all Americans and not just the ones who follow her political ideals.

Popular Fox News personality Glenn Beck has spent two weeks intensely scrutinizing the  President’s Green Czar, Van Jones. Kudos to Mr. Beck for exposing Mr. Jones as the Communist, activist, and fear-monger that he is, and for insisting that America speak up about this radical man’s affiliations with questionable groups in his past. Mr. Beck also demanded that Americans question with boldness their government. It looks like America responded with boldness. Kudos to America. Mr. Jones tendered his resignation today, saying in part, “On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me. They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.” Seems that the smear campaign that Mr. Jones experienced was the one he waged with his own words. Rather than accept defeat or challenge criticism, Mr. Jones also attempts to marginalize the opposition.

All of these examples of our unrepresentative representatives serve to remind us that our freedom of speech is working. It must be working or else we would not be witnessing the implosion of the Democratic Party. They would have you believe that it’s the angry Republicans and Conservatives who are impeding their progress, but it’s really their own myopic vision of their flawed policies that is slowing the advancement of their agenda. They own this mess and they have no one to blame but themselves. They are steeped in their own ridiculousness and the American people have stood up and called them on it.

Congratulations, America. Keep up the good work. Stay ever vigilant and don’t loose sight of the fact that there is even more ridiculousness afoot. They seek to inundate us with ludicrous proposals and antics in the hope that we will let down our guard and tire of the onslaught and grow weary with the weight of their policies. We will not surrender. We will not acquiesce. This is our country, and we will now be even bolder in our defense of her.

“Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state.”- Thomas Jefferson

Foundation of Fear

Posted August 29, 2009 by Sterling
Categories: Uncategorized

“Fear is the foundation of most governments; but it is so sordid and brutal a passion, and renders men in whose breasts it predominates so stupid and miserable, that Americans will not be likely to approve of any political institution which is founded on it.” John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776

Things are getting curiouser and curiouser here in the land of the free and the home of the brave. I feel as if I’ve fallen down into Alice’s rabbit hole, and everything is upside down. Up is down, left is right, black is white. And there seems to be no end in sight to all the ridiculousness going in my beloved country. America’s Congressional representatives are scaring the citizens half to death. Every day, we are assaulted with more craziness.

The most recent case of ridiculousness is a bill being floated by a Democratic Senator from West Virginia, of all places, that would allow the president to seize control of the internet in the event of a “cyberemergency.” Now just what might constitute a “cyberemergency” is not explained, and that’s really only the beginning to how frightening this bill is. There is a section in the bill that mandates a federal certification for cyber security professionals, and a requirement that certain computer systems and networks in the private sector be managed by people who have been awarded that license. (You can read the article that I sourced at: http://tinyurl.com/ncxonp) Who, what, where, when, and why? There’s no answer to any of those questions, except the who, of course. Once again the government purports to protect us from evil, including the evil being done by our own selves, but excluding of course, the evil of the government. And someone involved in this craziness actually said that this is similar to what President Bush did when grounding all aircraft on Sept. 11, 2001. After all the bashing and blaming that this presidential administration has done of the previous administration, they are now going to justify shutting down the internet, and essentially the freedom of speech for a vast majority of citizens, by comparing it to grounding aircraft immediately after a terrorist attack? Oh an observation has been made that we need to protect our electrical grids and electronic medical records and such, but what exactly does that have to do with e-mails, blogs, and online news content, to name just a handful of things that private citizens acces on the internet every day?

I don’t profess to have complete understanding of how the internet works, and how grids, servers, and networks play with one another, but it seems to me that the vagueness of this bill gives the government commission to do whatever it wants in regards to seizing control of a form of communication that many folks have turned to in recent months, if for no other reason, but to search for complete news information as opposed to being spoon-fed that which the mainstream news wants the country to know. This is scary stuff. Anyone who has studied the slightest bit of history understands that the first thing a government does in order to take control from the people is to control the means of communication. We saw this with Hitler, the USSR, Castro, and in Iran, to name but a few countries led by dictators or by communism. I’m not suggesting that our president is a dictator, but I am asking, why is he acting like one?

Glenn Beck’s daily program, which unless you’ve lived under rock this week, has enjoyed it’s highest week of ratings ever, despite the boycott that was launched against sponsors of the program. Some would argue, and I am one of them, that the boycott was an assault on Mr. Beck’s freedom of speech. Mr. Beck is a private citizen who opined on a public program about the president’s behavior and intentions. It is certainly the right of any other citizen to disagree with what he said, and to boycott the sponsors of his program if so affected. But it’s a bit sinister for a group that has close ties with the top official leading our government to launch such a well-oiled and well-publicized attack. Well publicized, by the way, by a compliant media.

There seems to be an attitude by those in power that freedom of speech is good, as long as it doesn’t disagrees with their policies. The principals upon which our great country was founded are being nipped and shaved and parced and scratched while we the people stand by feeling helpless. Our personal freedoms and liberties are under assault every day. I don’t want to think it, but I do now believe that there’s another revolution coming. Perhaps it will simply be a peaceful one at the time of the 2010 elections. But it’s a long time between now and November of 2010, and the people are afraid and nervous and skeptical now.

God bless us all, and guide us to make the right decisions for our lives, our childrens’ lives, and our country.

“I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” Thomas Jefferson
