I posted the image above an hour or so ago on my Facebook page.
While this statement is so true, what has been hitting at my heart these last few minutes is how did we get to this point in our country’s history? Where did WE THE PEOPLE go so wrong we are saying such things? Where did we go so wrong WE THE PEOPLE allowed our government to get so big and powerful, this happened?
What we see today in Washington is not something that happened overnight. While our wonderful country is over 200 years old now. The dismantling of America and our Constitution started back with Woodrow Wilson. At least the biggest push started then and has continued to today with the Obama Regime.
Of course then we had FDR and his New Deal and the start of so many social programs. It was after this when we started to see the focus of her citizens shift from the belief that WE should take care of each other to letting and relying on the government to take care of those who need help. Before this, who took care of those in need? WE DID! We did not hand this DUTY to the government.
As time went by from the FDR years, sure we saw breaks in the build up to what we are getting today. But, we saw in the 60′s and with Johnson another huge push “forward” to what we have today. Johnson’s biggest accomplishment in office was our current welfare state. Under Johnson and the Progressives since, it has been the goal of these people to get as many of our citizens relying on the government as they can. And they have done a damn good job of it too. Recent figures have been provided showing that 100 million Americans are getting some form of government assistance. That is approximately 1/3 of our population. Let me repeat that so it sinks in. 1/3 of our population is on some form of government assistance.
Worse, we have been basically sitting by and allowing this to happen.
The simple fact is, there is a certain population that has made it a lifestyle and a way of life to be on government assistance. And I am not talking race but a mindset. This problem is generational. In my own small rural Kansas town, I see first hand 3, sometimes 4 generations of the same family living this way. Being on welfare is their career of choice. They sit on their asses taking advantage of those of us who work and have our hard earned money taken from us. We didn’t volunteer to help these people out. The government, with its strong arm powers, takes our money and hands it out to those who are able to work, but not willing.
Now, before you jump down my throat and call me a heartless son-of-a-bitch, let me stop you. I am not saying those who truly need our help should not get some form of support and help from our tax dollars. We have allowed the entitlement programs to come into existence. With that, those who are truly not able to work or take care of themselves do need taken care of. What we need to do as citizens is to push for and support programs that make sure those in need are truly in need. And they are the ones who get support. We need to support programs which make sure the unqualified do not get such support.
The problem is we have a government under the Progressives who want to ignore this and give our money to basically anyone who says they need it. The more they can get on government assistance the better for the Progressives. This population is their base and the more they get, the more power the Progressives have and can grab.
The other problem is we have also ignored what is going on and allowed it to fester into the boil we have today. Can we honestly look ourselves in the mirror and say we have kept a watchful eye on this run away government we now have? While some of us may have. The majority of our population has not. Too many simply go about their days, worrying only about what is happening right in front of them. Too many have been so caught up in keeping up with their friends and neighbors they have truly missed what the government has been doing to them little by little.
So what has awaken this sleeping giant?
Never before in the last 100 years have we seen a president and a Regime move so fast to “fundamentally change America” into what they want Her to be. Never before have we seen someone like the Obama Regime with the nerve to so openly do what they have been doing the last almost 4 years. When in our history have we seen a president bypass the legislative process and make laws to fit his agenda? We haven’t.
If we have any hope of bringing our country back from the jaws of death, we have to get this tyrannical Obama Regime out of the White House. We have to get the vote out. And we have to convince those who refuse to vote for Romney either by writing in someone else or not voting to vote. If they don’t, they are handing Obama a lifetime dictatorship. I truly fear if Obama wins, we will see our Constitution trashed and Obama will with the stroke of a pin, make himself King.
This election people is without a doubt the most important election since Lincoln. The future of our country and future generations rest in what happens this year. Whether we live under a tyrannical Regime who follows what that image above says or not is at risk.
I hope what we saw a few weeks ago with Chick-Fil-A is truly an indication of what we are going to see on November 6th. I pray this sleeping giant has woke up realizing it is up to WE THE PEOPLE to save our nation. That WE THE PEOPLE finally realize we have to get off our asses, get out the vote and do what is our duty, VOTE.
If you don’t for yourself, think about your children, your grandchildren and even your great grandchildren. Their future is in our hands people.
