“We The People” find ourselves searching for the next great leaders.
“We The People” for the past 230 years have been a Constitutional Republic, created and implemented by very wise people who risked everything not for self; but to create a great nation. What “We The People” search for again is a group of new leaders who are willing to risk everything not for self, but for “We The People!” These risk takers will be American Citizens from every corner of the United States.
Willing to serve “We The People” not for personal glory, but serve to once again to create the greatest nation on earth! History can, and will repeat itself, because “We The People” will not have it any other way!
As a modern day society, it appears we have forgotten the groups of courageous citizens who banded together and risked everything to create our constitutional republic. A constitutional republic that many generations before us have been blessed to enjoy. The problem today is that liberals, moderates, and conservatives focus more on the argument than the actual importance of having the argument. Agree or not, the disagreement of different political viewpoints represents the only true important factor in the rhetoric. Because we must never stop debating, never stop disagreeing, and never stop questioning because that is what constitutional republic stands for.
A constitutional republic is not a polite and pretty entity; it can become fearful for the light-at-heart. When we stop arguing, when the rhetoric becomes one-sided, when any side is no longer willing to question, we achieve pure submission. Submission does not work in a constitutional republic; submission is not liberty nor is it being free. What does this all mean, there is no real republic without passionate rhetoric!
Regardless of where your political beliefs reside, be it left, middle or right, is not the concern, what is important is questioning our government to keep them honest and true to our best wishes. When we are questioning, we’re pro-actively taking the time to understand each issue that interests us, and affects us, as long as we independently determine our own belief at the end of the day that is true constitutional republic. Read, write, and question everything!
I have been told that I am too patriotic. I am the son of immigrants and my parents came to this country with only one suitcase that contained all their belongings. When they arrived in America, they were expected to become productive members of society, they were also expected to speak English, and if they could not achieve these two important requirements, they were expected to leave the country. Be productive and speak English, two clear-cut choices. My parents stayed and raised four productive children with English becoming their primary language.
Being the son of Italian immigrants, you would think I would have a natural interest in water fountains since Italy is historically known for their beautiful fountains. Since I am not interested in water fountains my wife surprised me and gave me a water fountain for my 50th birthday, and she is Irish, so I am not sure where that came from. Today was devoted to wiring the water fountain, to get it running because this project has been on my-honey-do list since July. Our home is 230 years old and wiring anything is a treacherous act in its self, and I am happy to report we were successful and the fountain is now running creating tranquil sound to relax with.
Not stopping with this wiring project was my plan, you see I live about 13 miles from the Massachusetts northern border in New Hampshire, and many of the neighbors are transplanted from Massachusetts. My neighbors have made comments about the large size of my American flag attached to my 30-foot flagpole, with a large gold eagle on top, located and planted freely in my front yard, on more than one occasion.
Perhaps I am too patriotic, is it possible to be too patriotic? The dedication to installing and having a running water fountain acquired the same wiring talent needed to place a bright spotlight on this American flag in my front yard; I owe this to my neighbors. Now our flag is visible for many miles a proud red, white, and blue American flag waving freely in the night. Perhaps I am too patriotic, and honestly, that is a good place to be!
We find ourselves wondering if the government is honestly paying attention to the economic experts or the common sense experiences of its citizens.
Common sense seems obvious if you want to simulate job creation the government needs to reduce or eliminate small business taxes. Small businesses in the United States make up over 75% of the new jobs in our economy and this number represents over 99% of all employers. With reduced or eliminated taxes, business owners can invest money back into their business; they can invest in new business markets, invest in new technologies, and invest in honest American job creation.
Reducing or eliminating business taxes is only half the common sense solution, the other half is not spending money our nation does not have. Most Americans budget for what they need and want, and our government needs to learn the same common sense approach to finance. Becoming a nation that is fiscally smart is not a four-letter word. Fiscally smart begins with the government, because common sense folks understand this important lesson.
Common sense folks created this nation, and it appears common sense folks will need to move away from the kings and princes’ the career politicians of the 21st Century. What is interesting is how we have come full circle, and it appears it is 1776 once again. Voting revolutions by the people, is always welcomed in society because they represent positive progress in a political wasteful environment caused by career politicians.
The intent of the founding fathers was a system of citizen politicians made up of common sense folks well-grounded, in reality, and today the financial waste is clearly controlled by the career politicians. The great intellect and scientist Albert Einstein said; “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” Common sense folks the voters understand that 2010 the year of the common sense voting revolution!
During a conversation with a gentleman I met yesterday, he made a statement that the Democratic Party had become hijacked by the far left liberals and the Democrat moderates and conservatives, the self-proclaimed Democratic Blue Dogs are beyond belief that this has occurred.
It then occurred to me that perhaps the same statement about the Conservative right hijacking the Republican Party is possible. I do agree something has changed with the Republican Party over the past twenty-five years; I would not call it a hijacking, perhaps more resembling a transformation that began with President Ronald Reagan.
However, the Republican Party does not have the community organizing skills we have witnessed on the Democratic Party side, especially during the past presidential election. Today with the various Tea Parties, and the events of 9/12 what we are witnessing once again is a transformation of historical proportions and it is occurring in all directions around America.
It is not clear if one political party should receive the credit for driving this transformation across America, or perhaps simply the credit belongs to “the will of the people”. “The will of the people” always wins over career politicians, the will of the people” has no political boundaries, and “the will of the people” is what our founding fathers intended.
