Happy Memorial Day 2013

While today is reserved to remember and honor those brave service men and women who have gone on before us, let us also remember what they stood for.  They stood for the Constitution.

Our country has a Constitution that is the envy of the world.  Many rights are protected by it.

Lately, our representative government has attempted to move away from the Constitution and become more of a democratic form of government.

I have defended the Constitution for many years and will continue until I draw my last breath.  It is time to stand up and remind our representatives exactly what kind of government they are part of.  Unfortunately the current residents in Washington are nothing more than a CEO club.  They think that they are the only one’s that matter.  Another unfortunate part of this deal is that regular people like me and you can’t afford to go traipsing around the country campaigning.  Otherwise, we might actually get some people running the show that could really do something.

It is sad that our President, Senators and Representatives are paid hundred’s of thousands of dollars (individually) and their only concern is what can I get before I am replaced.  Is there a way to fix this?  Or are we stuck with it?

Unfortunately we are stuck with it – simply because to many are content with letting the government run their lives.

Our representatives are too concerned with social functions and being seen with prominent people, than being concerned with taking care of the people who voted for them.

As I close, think on this, and ponder the possibilities:

In the next election, all the powers that be – Senators, President, Governors, state board officials, etc. – are replaced by common people like you and me.  This could actually work – shoot, it couldn’t be any worse than it is now.  Just think – people controlling the federal budget that have actual real life experience with budgets.

Feel free to comment – especially you PK.

Have a blessed day, I certainly am
