We the “PEOPLE” of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America…
We here in America, for the last 7 decades, have truly lived in the land of opportunity. We have provided well for our families (even frivolously), seen technology boom, made a good, honest living, and, in comparison to most, lived a life of relative comfort and ease. We have had more than we could eat, festive parties, and enchanted vacations (ok, some sucked, but still). We have become used to having plenty, spoiled or corrupted some may say, and have no desire to ever go without.
While we the PEOPLE, the claviger of this great nation have been growing fat and spoiled, we slowly relinquished the charge of our forefathers to progressively steer this great nation down the path of Justice, Tranquility, General Welfare, and most of all, Liberty. While the watchdog got fat and lazy, the cunning rascals masquerading as our leadership, slithered around in virtual anonymity appropriating, diverting, plundering, and defrauding every aspect of our national and personal wealth and freedoms.
You see, a government of the PEOPLE, by the PEOPLE, and for the PEOPLE, is exactly that. We the PEOPLE are charged with the DUTY to oversee our overseers. If we are lax in the performance of this DUTY, we have no one to censure but ourselves when our public servants run afoul of their appointments. Oh sure, we raise holy hell every four years or so and bend the ears of our politicians and require them to appear to acquiesce to our demands. They know, however, that once elected, their feet will not be held to the flames of responsibility by their ultimate administrators. This is not the juxtaposition intended by the founders of this great nation. Rather, the founders intended the people to rule the public servants with a devoutness that may cause an irresponsible politician to be tarred and feathered in a public forum by affronted constituents.
It is high time that the true leaders of this great nation push their fat, lazy asses away from the table, quit bitching about this and that, quit fighting each other along political lines, and stand up, together, and reclaim the rights endowed upon them by the US constitution. We must fight for ethical and just leadership, not for party divisiveness. I’m not a republican, I’m not a democrat. I am an American and I want my country back!!
