Friends I wrote something today on a whim to make a quick point on our state of affairs politically. Tonight I would like to go a bit further, if you don’t mind indulging me for a bit. It may end up being a bit long but I pray that you take the time to read what I have to say. It is important.
As you have noticed over the years with Obama as President, we have lost many rights, many liberties. We are seeing racism in places where once it did not exist. We are seeing those that never had a thought of race now questioning if maybe they should. It is becoming a “we and them” society.
We have seen during his tenure an increase of very high profile shootings and bombings. We have seen the decimation of our military to pre-WWII levels. We see the removal of high-ranking military commanders removed from command because they stand up for what is right and against Obama.
We have seen the sacrifice of our soldiers, be it life or disability, thrown away by the removal of any military on conquered soil, only to allow something more evil to replace what we had destroyed. We have seen the destruction of our Space Program. We have seen the slow rewriting of our history if not complete removal, the Confederate Battle Flag and the 10 Commandments in Court Houses to name a few.
We have seen a CENTRALIZED Federal Health Care Program shoved down our throats and become law. One in which we are fined if not used. Its legitimacy was confirmed by a few individuals in non-elected roles for life. Where was our say so?
You cannot find any news service that reports according to the SPJ Code of Ethics. In short, ethical journalism should be accurate and fair. Journalists should be honest and courageous in gathering, reporting and interpreting information and to ensure that only FACTS on both sides are reported without bias. The reader or listen can them make their own judgment based on the facts that they are given. It is all spin for ratings and for the benefit of the Government, in my opinion. We are dived even based on which news channel we watch.
The Federal Government is but a few changes away from completely decimate our rights afforded by our Constitution to a point to where they control all things. At this very moment we no longer have the ability to legislate ourselves through representation even at a state level.
Have you ever question why we still use the Electoral College system when it comes to voting? Well firstly it does not benefit those being elected. It allows the winner to become a looser and the looser become the winner. All any of them has to do is to get a few key states out of 50 to vote for them and they win.
This system was established 1787, 228 years ago! All the hype and all of our effort and all of our dreams that our own individual vote holds goes to the 528 members of the Electoral College. So with our current population of 325,181,900 plus, does this seem like a system that is for us, the people?
Yes, the system is part of our Constitution for a multitude of reasons. One major reason is that it brings “Wisdom” to the presidential election. So maybe we have always been thought of as dumb. It was and is taught in Colleges that with this small number of people are more educated and able to understand more of government ways and more about the runners. Another is that this system would serve as protection of state influence. The thought was that since each state had a certain number it would prevent the government from centralizing power. As we can see, our “leaders, (term used very loosely) found a way to do just that, CENTRALIZE!
My friends, as we have been bickering amongst ourselves, our government has destroyed what this nation once was. We have allowed it and apparently, many do not care. They feel that if thy turn off the TV or delete a post on Facebook that it will all go away.
We are actually in worse shape as a people than when our nation decided to send England packing. Are you okay with this? I AM SO NOT OKAY WITH THIS. It is time that we as a citizen of our country that we gather and stand up once more. Make our wishes heard and show that we will not put up with a government that is no longer for or by the people. I suggest that you look at the timeline of Nazi Germany’s rise and compare it to ours just over the last dozen years here.
Please, wake up, learn and educate yourselves on what you can do. Stand your ground and let us each become one, black, white or brown. May God bless and keep this Nation for without God our Country cannot stand.
