“I appeal to you, to constantly bear in mind that it is not with politicians, it is not with presidents, it is not with office seekers, but with you is the question. Shall the union and shall the liberties of the country be preserved? it is your business. If the Union of these states and the liberties of this people shall be lost, it is your business to rise up.”
-Abraham Lincoln in Indianapolis, on his way to Washington to assume the presidency-
Oh how far we have strayed from the wisdom of those words. At least our government has. But the people allowed it to happen. Thankfully, the occasion to “rise up” is coming in November. Thankfully, the American people have all but woken up from they’re long slumber, when the time was that government changed so many of the rules, that the people suddenly awoke to the fact that a lot of the freedoms, that the Constitution guaranteed them, were gone. For example. The Second Amendment, which says that….the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed, has been gotten rid of. If you live in Chicago, the only way you can have a gun, is if you are a criminal, or a police officer. Which effectively leaves the population defenseless. We would be in trouble if a terrorist attacked there. The people would not be able to fight them except with sticks and stones and shovels.
Chicago, is a great example of where this country has been led. And our president is the front line on this. The last president we had that actually listened to the people at all was G. W. Bush, when after 9/11 he said:
In the normal course of events, Presidents come to this chamber to report on the state of the Union. Tonight, no such report is needed. It has already been delivered by the American people.
We have seenn it in the courage of passengers who rushed terrorists to save others on the ground. Passengers like an exceptional man named Todd Beamer. And would you please help me welcome his wife, Lisa Beamer, here tonight…….
My friends….I know that I may sound like a broken record here, but this country is in trouble. Big trouble. And it all stems from the fact that the President and those in the hierarchy of our government seem to think that the only ideas here that will work are NEW ones. The other day, Obama said that he hasn’t heard a single new idea from the republicans in a long time. Someone needs to tell him that the ideas that the republicans are coming out with are NOT new. They don’t have to be. The come from the Constitution. It is just as Reagan once told Ted Kennedy when confronted with the same way of thinking, when Kennedy accused Reagan of having no new ideas. “…having a nineteenth-century attitude on law and order. Reagan said that is a totally false accusation. “I have an eighteenth-century attitude. That is when the Founding Fathers made it clear that the safety of law-abiding citizens should be one of the government’s primary concerns.”
That quote could be used so well the other day when Obama accused the Republicans of having no new ideas. Of course they don’t. They are using the ideas of the Constitution. Ideas that have worked for America since the beginning, what what Reagan went back to, to get this country back on track. Well, the time to get back on track has arrived again, and the time for mass evictions of the guilty. The idea that a president will not listen to the people when they speak, and instead would rather commit Obamacide on the population, to me, is just abominable. Since he has come to the presidency, he has done everything he can to keep one campaign promise that none of us who voted for him seemed to hear. And that is, that he wanted to fundamentally change America. Well, we have all woke up now, and we are realizing that he cares nothing for what we want, but his Obamacide is in full production. And we the people, are the targets of his poison.
