Howdy all! Well we all are still reeling from the 2 big stories of the day. Yes we had no clue this would happen, in fact it seemed like a slam dunk what the outcome of one would be. But, it is true, Nadal is out of Wimbedon in the second round; GHASTLY! And Derek Jeter tied Cal Ripken’s all-time hit record.
This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. ~ Psalm 118:24
Nothing so strongly impels a man to regard the interest of his constituents, as the certainty of returning to the general mass of the people, from whence he was taken, where he must participate in their burdens." --George Mason, speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1788
What you haven’t been watching baseball? What have you been watching, politics? Or maybe E! network?
OK, Obamacare. Yes, it was upheld. Yes I was stunned and a bit angry. You too I imagine. At least we now know. We know where the court stands. We know where the President stands. There is no back door chicanery. And if you had read or heard anything after the announcement today, there was resolve. Anger, disgust, but yes resolve. Everyone on radio, on blogs, on forums, on facebook, twitter are resolved to end the nightmare.
The question is how? That is easy. Vote the jerks out. I don’t just mean Obama. Your senators and representatives are up for re-election. Get your friends, church members, neighbors, co-workers and anyone you meet to register. Make sure you ARE registered. And vote the jerks out. And, let those you vote in know they will be watched more than anyone ever, including Obama. This is OUR country. They are OUR employees. They must be INSTRUCTED, not just asked, to do what we want them to. WE KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR US, NOT SOME BIMBO FROM SAN FRANSISCO, or some dork from Nevada, or even some crybaby from Ohio.
Voice your Choice! Tell them now who will get your vote. Don’t let them bask in the silence, where they can happily try to convince you they are perfect for the job. Tell them they aren’t getting your vote until,… MAKE THEM SQUIRM! Make them beg.
Is this encouraging? YES. Why? Because I don’t want you to sit on your duffs and whine all day, all summer. Write letters to the editors. Blog, tweet, whatever your tools; use them. Let them all know up front, they got a lot to do to get your vote. And remind them of what George Mason said. Nothing so strongly impels a man to regard the interest of his constituents, as the certainty of returning to the general mass of the people, from whence he was taken, where he must participate in their burdens. In other words, the thought of going back to the general population after losing an election to face the music can make a politician think twice before going against his or her constituents.
This truly is a day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it. We have now been given focus, resolve and, if you participate the conviction to do what all three branches of government have not.
Two hundred and thirty six years ago just yesterday, a guy named Tom finished writing these words:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
Be angry; whine out loud; scream out your window; kick holes in the walls. Then, get your focus and resolve and let’s get to work. We got a lot to do.
Take care, God bless,
AND STAND WITH ISRAEL!!!
