WE ARE JUST NOT FED UP ENOUGH YET…


Blog Post 1 - FED UP

That’s right America it is my assertion that we are just not fed up enough YET!  Oh, I do not question we are irritated, inconvenienced, have legitimate concerns and fears as to the state of nation and liberty here in America, we do!  The move toward either Elitist Oligarchy or Full Tyranny has significantly escalated over the past 7 years and is cause for concern.  We do have cause for alarm, but I do not believe, as a people, we are fed up enough yet.  In the pre-revolution era those who were astute with the pen and passionate for Freedom, Independence and Liberty began a lengthy process of driving public sentiment toward Revolution.  They sought to expose the conditions, build on the concerns of the individual colonist and pull back the veil on what the British Crown was doing and would do.  Those who were capable of recruiting financiers and train the colonist in a uniform method began their work long before 1776 the Revolution began because those who knew were FED UP and they finally reached enough people in the colonies with reality that the a significant portion of the colonist became FED UP to the point that they could stand with Patrick Henry and adopt the mindset, “Give me liberty or give me death.”  I do not believe we are there yet.  We make a lot of noise but rather than joining forces we are often at each other’s throats over minors and people rather than addressing the problem

Blog Post 1 - Live Free

The founding fathers and colonist reached a point they knew that if they remained subservient to the British Crown they would never be able to enjoy the life they knew possible in America.  They had carved out a niche for themselves overcoming incredible odds and facing unimaginable difficulties and demonstrating what was possible if the monarch or government gave them space to purse Life, Liberty and Happiness.  We are unhappy but even among those most vocal I do not always sense a level of disgust and despair that says, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, I’M TOTALLY FED UP!  I hear, I don’t like this and I want you to change and if you don’t I am going to try to keep you for being reelected and verbally demand you stop what you are doing.  Of course, those advancing the tyrannical agenda ignore those voices and sidestep the few elections won or lost and keep the ship of change headed toward the port of their vision.  When we get FED UP enough they will find their unimpeded path is lined with opposition that is beyond complaints but of substance.   Some will accuse me of calling for armed rebellion and that IS NOT what I’m suggesting.  We are a nation of laws, have a constitution, a Congress and the courts what we have not effectively used because we are too busy targeting our individual pet peeves.

Blog Post 1 - Goal

            Do you think that the founding fathers and the colonist agreed on every issue or who should lead the effort?  NO!  They were in severe disagreement up to and through their hammering out the Declaration of Independence.  They were FED UP sufficiently to lay aside their differences and reject the notion that those singular issues individuals considered of paramount importance were more important the objective of Independence, Liberty and Freedom.  We tend to develop such tunnel vision that we focus on our issue(s) and if any candidate or individual does not agree with us on those issues they become our enemy.  We allow what can be only be described as pettiness to prevent us from a unified voice.  I know some will object that their views are not petty but if they become more important than the Objective of the Republic they are.  The Tea Party helped address this to a degree then factions within the movement began to splinter to their candidate or issue and we began to lose our impact and the ability to plant fear in the hearts of politicians because of our uniformity and togetherness.  We will never all agree on everything but we must all agree on the importance of the Republic, freedom and liberty.  Until we become FED UP enough that we can unify as did our forefathers and stand against a common real enemy we will not achieve our objective of restoring the Republic and preserving Freedom and Liberty for ourselves and those generations to come.

Too often we take the futile approach of, “well it’s the best we can get.”  NO!  Enough already!  It is not satisfactory to resign ourselves to ordinariness and the lesser of two evils it is time to get FED UP to the point and widespread enough that across America from Maine to California from Washington State to Florida and everywhere between we are FED UP and motivated to organized resistance at the polls, demonstrate to the courts and Congress that we are willing to lose everything to gain our Freedom.  It will be then and only then that they understand we are not just angry but FED UP and as we STAND UP, SPEAK UP and put our money, time and lives on the line for the cause of the Republic we will become a force like that of 1776.

Blog Post 1 - Liberty or Death

The reason a candidate for the GOP can be brash and even caustic and still be supported is that people are disgusted with the political correctness and ineptness of politicians. The disgust causes anyone who demonstrates a political fearlessness to draw like honey draws flies.  That person becomes like a flame to a moth and even if we do not agree with some or even much of what they are for we seem unable to resist the appeal.  We need fearlessness in politics if we are going to see America salvaged and restores as the Constitutional Republic we were given.  We also need to vet carefully those who step forward volunteering to lead us to the Promised Land.  I am not making an endorsement or leveling a criticism of the political volunteers of the GOP I am saying that we need fearlessness and we need consistency in constitutional principles which I believe will also be conservative in nature.  When we become FED UP enough we will take back our government or if we do not become FED UP enough we will watch it die in the very near future.

How long will it be before America is truly FED UP?  Personally, I do not think it will be or can be long and probably before if not shortly after this next election we will see a new level of FED-UP-NESS among legal American citizens who love America and long for our God given rights and liberties.

God bless you and God bless America!

A REPUBLIC IF YOU CAN KEEP IT…


Blog Post 1 - Republic If

The words of Benjamin Franklin keep echoing through my mind as I view the current condition of America and the world.  I will lose some with this statement but I am convinced that without a spiritual awakening in America the Republic is not being lost it is lost.  There are a number of reasons that I believe that and I hope to address some of them and leave it to you to decide.

Blog Post 1 - Iran Terrorism

Just a short time ago Barack Obama gave an hour long speech in which he admitted that he had no illusions that the Islamic regime of Iran would use some of the money freed up by lifting the sanctions to fund its military and terrorist activities.  He acknowledged they had funded activity that killed American service personnel and harmed Americans and would do so again.  That in itself is so unconscionable and utterly outrageous that one would think that any American would be up in arms but there is no outrage.  The outrage even among conservatives is so minuscule that it boggles the mind and screams of the condition of our society.  That any sitting president of these United States would admit something of that nature and then insist that the deal with Iran is in the best interest of America is beyond belief.  Iran has declared their intentions, rejected all possibilities of verifying their activities and gave up nothing while demanding we make concessions on every point.  How is that in the best interest of America, Israel or the world?

Blog Post 1 - Planned Parenthood

            The recent fervor over a lion killed in Africa and the ho hum attitude about the Planned Parenthood revelations is cause for concern about the moral and spiritual condition of the nation.  When the brutal slaughter and the merchandising of body parts of babies is deemed acceptable and the killing of a lion in Africa worthy of intense outrage and a death sentence for the hunter how can I not be concerned about the state of our society?

When Louis Farrakhan can stand publicly and call for people of color to begin stalking and killing those deemed their enemies and no national outrage how can we not be concerned?  He cited the Quran and declared that God’s way was retaliation a message totally foreign to the Bible and Christianity.  He declared that if the federal government will not intervene for the blacks then they must take matters in their own hands.  He called for murder in violation of God’s laws.  He was not railing against black on black crime or the activities of Planned Parenthood who provides more abortions to blacks than any other group proportionally.  When the only lives that matter to people like him are black and/or Islamic lives and promotes vigilante actions and murderous rioting and there is no immediate action from the government or a moral outcry from the citizenry does that not proclaim our dilemma?

Blog Post 1 - Moral Decay

            When the Supreme Court, the president, the media, most Democrats and many Republicans can support forcing churches, businesses and individuals to not only accept same sex marriage and force them to violate their religious convictions what does that say?  When the president of these United States can proudly proclaim that America is not a Christian Nation and that we are the largest Muslim nation in the world what does that say about our spiritual condition?

There are many who are incredibly patriotic Americans that do not believe in God or do not believe that God has any place in political affairs who will possibly take exception to my assertion but look at our society and our government.  Can anyone honestly say that our moral fabric has not been severely strained?  I am unashamedly a Christian and believe that to help facilitate the progress of jihadist who want to destroy this nation and anyone who does not adopt their religion is a sign of our decline spiritually.  I believe that when a society can be unmoved by the revelations of Planned Parenthood it is an evidence of our moral decay.  I believe that when as a people we can be less than outraged by the racist call for murder the assault on our constitution and thumbing the nose at our laws is an evidence that we have become a nation that no longer has its moral moorings.  I believe that when politicians can demonstrate such corruptness and the myriad of scandals surface with not real outrage or push to evict and prosecute those committing such acts it reflects the moral moorings of this day.  I am reminded of the words of George Washington in his inaugural address, “…we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven, can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained…”

Therefore, it is my belief that unless we have a spiritual awakening in America and return to our moral moorings the Republic is lost.  I am convinced that the goal of those who hate our American System and Republican Democracy and has been majorly advanced by the current administration.  I am equally convinced that if we realize our condition and return to the moral moorings that held us for generations we can see the Republic restored.  There is little time and maybe not enough time without divine intervention.  Regardless of your religious or spiritual views surely America is worth fighting for.  I pray that resonates with your heart and that we join together in the pursuit of keeping the Republic.

            God bless you and God bless America!

MY EDITORIAL OPINION ON THE PROBLEM…


Blog Post - Identify the Problem

You might ask, “What problem are your speaking of, Roy?”  I am so glad you did.  In my opinion, humble or otherwise, one of the greatest problems in Congress today is legislation.  Let me clarify, it is legislation that is laden with riders, amendments, pork and other things that have absolutely nothing to do with the bill.  It is either destroying or has quite possibly destroyed our legislative process and made it nothing more than political prostitution and turned Congress into a political gestapo fronting for Giant Corporations, Radical Special Interests and Political Ideologies.

This process allows politicians to hide behind a vote at some point and declare, “I voted against or for it.”  It allows legislators to attach an amendment of pork or coercion to a bill that if it stood alone would force them to vote yes or no and allow the public to truly evaluate their stance on issues of concern to us all.  The ability to attach amendments and riders to bills creates and environment through which legislators are allowed to fleece the public, pull the wool over the eyes of the unobservant and Cover their Political Backsides.  It allows them to reap the benefits of money and power during and after their political careers.  It allows them to advance political ideologies that are not always good for America but satisfy a special interest group that is vocal, powerful and contributes heavily to their campaigns.

Blog Post - Problems

Let me advance a solution that will never happen UNLESS or UNTIL we retake our government from the political elitist running Washington.  It is not a new theory but one I believe would benefit America greatly.   I would like to see STAND ALONE LEGISLATION as the rule and law for Congress.  If a bill cannot pass on its own merit then let it die.  If politicians choose to vote in a purely partisan manner on issues that are of significant importance to the American public then let them do so.  If the American voter then opts to return those individuals to Washington they do so knowingly not through deception.

Blog Post - Full Disclosure

I would like to see bills free of all amendments and riders.  I had a politician tell me, “But you just don’t know how DC works and we do not have enough time to debate every issue that would be required.”  My response was, “You are probably right, I do not know how things work in DC but I know how they should.  I also know that if you spent less time dancing, engaging in CYA and focused on the matter at hand, many of the bills would require little debate and an Up or Down vote would be relatively simple.  Then each legislator would be on record as to how they voted and the voting records of politicians would be useful in determining who we would vote for in subsequent elections.”  He did not like my observation.

The sad reality is that most bills that reach the desk of the President are so filled with pork and extraneous items they have little to do with the original intent.  They are tools of deception and it seems a haven for politicians to frolic and hide.  They become spin machine tools and provide ability to pad the resume falsely furthering the deception of the public and the destruction of this nation.

Blog Post - Solving the Problme

            I asked my Congressman if he would support this and he said, “In principle but we do not operate in principle.”  He would not elaborate and to me that was a clear answer that he was saying, “NO.”  It would remove a powerful political tool from their arsenal and would make them too visible.  I have had numerous people argue against this saying, “But this allows the legislators to add some really good stuff to bad bills that are sure to pass anyway.”  If I accepted that philosophy I could accept the genocide of some if in that occurrence we got some good things along with it.  I cannot, do not and will not accept that philosophy.  I would prefer to see legislation that I support die for lack of support by legislators than to see a few things I want wrapped in a host of things I do not and are not good for this nation.

I desire accountability in politics as in all areas of life, mine included.  I believe that we would be far better served as a nation and have a real possibility of cleaning up and changing Washington if we actually had STAND ALONE LEGISLATION and disallowed adding amendments and riders that have ZERO to do with the legislation in question.  Again, this is my opinion and I have received ABSOLUTELY NO support from any legislator I have spoken to about this.

            May God bless you and may God bless America!
