Our Founding Fathers Created A Dream

DREAM

Our Founding Fathers created a dream. The dream is a country where hard work, dedication to family, dedication to a country means something special. Our Founding Fathers created a dream; over 200 years ago before any preconceived notion could have formed about the importance of this dream. Preconceived convictions that society must govern itself, that leadership should not be monarchs by birth. That leadership voted into office by the people, represents true leadership in a self-govern society.

The people who select their leaders, to represent them, to represent the desires of society to grow, learn, and be self-satisfied with the world around it. Not reaching complacency, but establishing a rewarding life in a nation’s domain. These selected leaders become the left and right arm of those who put them in office. We the People, our nation’s modern day descendants of the Founding Fathers, in the truest sense, a nation of immigrants still creating American dreams.

We are witnessing these dreams at the speed of technology in real-time, the first modern emergence is The Tea Party, simply the tip of the iceberg of change, proof that the founding Father’s dreams are still alive-and-kicking today.

It really comes down to term limits!

AMERICAN WRITER

Our founding fathers recognized the importance of having citizen politicians. Citizen politicians defined over 235 years ago as people who participate in the political process, and these people come from all walks of life, such as farmers, businesses, law practices, inn keepers, chimney sweepers and schoolteachers.

These citizen politicians participated in the people’s government result in fresh new realist practical ideas from the communities they live in. These ideas coming from the community bringing reality and cultural inspiration based on real world experiences. These citizen politicians representing the people’s government and after their politicking is done they simply travel home to their citizens lives once again.

What is deeply saddening is the evolutionary process of the professional politician, who’s only goal in life is to stay in that elected seat full-time and forever. Without ever relinquishing this position resulting in stagnant ideas, with no possible sense of connection to the real people that elected them. In addition, a lack of connection to any sense of reality at all, these professional politicians are more closely aligned to an elitist mindset nowhere grounded to the community they are supposed to represent.

Political elitists have no direct correlation to the citizens that they represent, in most cases these professional politicians are not even from the same state. The only reason that these professional politicians are there, is because a great deal of money is now made for being a professional politician. Our founding fathers never intended to make citizens full-time politicians, or they would have written term-limits into the constitution for all elected officials from dogcatcher to the president.

Instead, what we have today a professional politician with no real connection back to the community that they represent, and what happens is “we the people” cease to exist.” “We the people” today are no longer the foundation for this government, and we the people have become merely three words in the English language.

January 19, 2010 linked to July 4, 1776

The political guesswork is at hand, January 19, 2010 linked to July 4th, 1776. With the vast network of politicians spending millions of dollars to help us determine who we vote for, and yet never really understanding the needs of the people. With the negative and positive adds, as well as the truthful as dishonest ads simply confuse the voter more. While all candidates have one thing in common, a desire to focus your vote, to earn your vote, and to get you out to the voting booth.

What is forgotten is that our founding fathers intended for the politicians to be citizen politicians. A citizen politician, an elected person who goes back to their farm, law practice, business, military job or home when the politicking job is done. Our founding fathers intended for the politicians to be the voice of the citizens, not the voice to keep the politician in office for life.

What is forgotten, is our founding fathers intended for this great nation never to just focus on one view or the other, but to focus on the people’s views. The people’s views are never-ending and always in some form of change, because the people views are all that matters. What is important with the election on January 19. 2010 is our current politicians are simply that, politicians who have lost focus on the people’s views.

Our founding fathers knew what they were doing…. when the government forgets they work for us the citizens, the system they created will adjust…. January 19, 2010 the adjustment begins…

Our founding fathers understood these moments in history would occur when an adjustment becomes needed; one candidate experienced in both civilian and military life has made his candidacy a formidable foe against a Large-Out-Dated-Democratic-Machine in Massachusetts.

Perhaps the reason we are here today it’s time for a different view, it’s time for the people’s view, and the people’s voice will vote on January 19, 2010, and may the adjustment begin…

2010-Midterm Elections Coming Early To The State of Massachusetts

It appears that perhaps the 2010-midterm elections coming early to the State of Massachusetts. With the passing of Ted Kennedy, filling his senatorial seat decided by a special election. As Massachusetts’ law stand today the special election will be open to all political parties. Massachusetts law requires a special election within 145-160 days after a Senate seat becomes vacant and the law prohibits the governor from making an interim appointment. This was not always the case in Massachusetts, which last changed its succession law in 2004 to require a special election. Before that change, the governor could name a successor. At the time, the Democrat Party worried that the Republican Governor Mitt Romney would be able to fill any vacancy created if Democratic Senator John Kerry became elected president, obviously changing the rules to best fit the Democrat Party’s politics of the day (Source: CNN).

Imagine what would happen if we change the rules to favor the New York Yankees before the next Boston Red Sox World Series.

Ironically, the American Revolution began at Christ Church in Boston where it was “one if by land, two if by sea,” by passionate people who believed in freedom, liberty, and developed what we call today democracy (Source: Library of Congress). Such important history beginning in Massachusetts is on the verge of historic significance once again.

The question now becomes will the Democrat Party change the rules to keep this senatorial seat or will they put their trust in our democracy and fair play?

Democracy is Not A Polite and Pretty Entity

USA

Many of my liberal, moderate, and conservative friends 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. We must never stop debating, never stop disagreeing, and never stop questioning because that is what democracy is all about. Democracy 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 democracy; submission is not liberty nor is it being free. The human race has not achieved the top of the food chain because we were submissive. The human race represents the uppermost part of the food chain because we are willing to risk all to get our point across. What does this all mean, there is no real democracy 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 democracy. Read, write, and question everything!

Sarah Palin, the common folks 21st century American Knight!

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin, the common folks 21st century American Knight!

Why do the silver spoon-fed aristocrats hate Governor Palin so much?

This hatred comes from her association with the common folks. Today’s embedded long-term career politicians are no different from the noble class of the Middle Ages. Then out of the American last wild frontier comes a woman not groomed for greatness by attending the finest private schools money could buy. She is a natural people organizer, positive proof that you don’t have to buy votes to win elections. She is a person who’s family is as unpredictable as our own, and far from perfect, yet so truly loved. Her examples of genuine love for her family are an aristocrat’s worst nightmare.

Here is why the aristocrats are now worried, our economic system shaped like a pyramid, the wealthiest 10% of United States families own more than 72% of the total wealth. (Source: Race, class, and gender in the United States by Paula S. Rothenberg) This means the remaining 90% represent the second class citizens, the common folks, and the middle class. 90% of anything represents an amazing number of votes that reacts to positive emotion. Governor Palin gives people a reason for positive emotion, and she gives them a reason to believe that common folks can become great leaders in our society. She represents the truest form of the American dream, still alive today in the 21st Century.

Compounding the aristocrat’s dilemma is the aristocrats can only afford to buy off about 20% of these common folks; the remaining 80% represent a voting revolution thirsty for a new leader.

The aristocrats believe that Sarah Palin is this leader, a common folks 21st century American Knight. She may or may not be the next chosen one, what she will do is shake up the aristocrat tree, and we will all be better-off because of it!

The news media’s responsibility to society is to report the news, not create it!

Dr. Pietro Savo

The day I met the President of the United States, it was truly a celebration event, he spoke for an hour, no teleprompter, no prepared notes, and what he said that day naturally connected with everyone at the Armory in Manchester New Hampshire. The president was so near, I could look into his eyes, what I saw was the awesome responsibility of the office; can you imagine having the responsibility for an entire nation.

That day he created a genuine kinship with everyone there, everyone listening and everyone seeing a genuine leader. The same President of the United States, the same man the news media brought to trial, judged, and finally convicted.

We often forget the media’s responsibility to society is to report the news, not create it. When the power of the media abuses our nation’s reality for political reason, the entire nation suffers and pays the price. When the news media became the supermarket tabloid, their credibility, became lost forever.

That day when the President of The United States’ approached me, he asked me how he was doing. So impressed by his question, all I could say was “fantastic Mr. President!” Can you imagine a son of an Italian immigrant meeting the President of the United States, with my cell phone in hand; I dialed my Mom and shared the moment with her. On October 5th, 2002, the President of the United States autographed my Presidential Event entry ticket. Today this autograph is still one of my most cherished possessions.

Homeland Security Problem is the “Tip of The Iceberg!”

check please

The poorly informed Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano apologized to veterans after a report issued by her department said troops returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were at risk for recruitment by right-wing extremists. A leader’s role in a democratic society is to have enough experience to avoid insulting the men and women serving in the Armed Forces that keep them safe. Our Constitutional Fathers were patriots who believed in the freedoms that today are at risk because government officials act without thinking. Ultimately, we believe and hope the Obama administration finally becoming staffed with smart people; however, the evidence is contrary. Now the question that comes to mind, where was the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) while this government wrongly insulted and accused our veterans?

What happen to due process for our Armed Forces, what happened to due-process according to the ‘law of the land’ and whose duties it to protect the Armed Forces’ civil liberties? Napolitano’s apology was not the solution; she was simply re-acting to the symptom, getting to the root cause to Napolitano department’s error, the only way to ensure it never happens again.

Our founding fathers, as a deterrent against fancy governmental double speak, created the Constitution. Due process for all citizens is the law. When supposedly smart people from the Obama administration insult our nation’s finest citizens, this problem is simply the Tip of The Iceberg. Again another reason why government must be for the people and not just for more government, ACLU asleep on watch once again, clearly time to cut the ACLU’s funding!

Term limits, are urgently needed today!

American Writer

 

Our economic blight is in real-time; the warning signs have been there for decades. No one paid much attention to the mess until it was too late; a great reason for making term limits the law for everyone in political office. Politicians get fat and comfortable, while we less fortunate pay the price.

 

Our United States Founding Father’s intentions were to establish a citizen politician to assure common sense law clarity from our lawmakers, by the people for the people as the guiding motivation. The reality with career politicians is self-sustaining, and to ensure they remain in office for as long as possible. The sad truth is long after these politicians have provided their usefulness to our community; they are still there providing no value at all. Politicians can argue their importance forever, especially those eloquent career politicians; resulting in absolutely no benefit to the citizens.

 

The missed economic warning signs that have devastated our present and future. Recovery from this mess will depend on creating productive jobs and not unproductive political rhetoric. The important distinction between productive and unproductive jobs, what we are witnessing today is a devastating inequity, and throwing money at it, is not the solution. Can you hear the career politicians attempting to define productive jobs if asked to do so as they continue to spend money foolishly? Term limits, is urgently needed today, as a means to ensure citizen politicians inspired by real-world common sense experiences can make the laws once again.
