Many people today take these opening words from our Constitution for granted. We assume that the laws that have protected us before will remain tomorrow. This isn’t a gloom and doom article, but hopefully one that will make you think, about what our forefathers had in mind when they wrote the constitution. I often wonder what would George Washington think if he saw our country today, or Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin or even Abraham Lincoln. Would they be as sickened by what we are becoming as many people are.
Do we really need to go in a direction of a socialized government, which is the direction Obama is taking us. Is it our wish to wind up like England, Japan or even China where the governments decide for the people what they can and cannot do? Even going so far as to determine how many children they can have. Look at your kids, can you honestly say you would be OK if one or two of them never happened because you weren’t allowed to have them. As we passively go along, with the status quo and don't actually listen to what is and is not being said we are surrendering more and more of our freedoms.
|Now I'm not a fan of soda|
but even I think this is wrong.
Truthfully did anyone ever believe they would see a day when a mayor was able to make it illegal for you to super size your slurpee or soda? Countries like China and Japan already dictate what people can and can't do. Do we as Americans want to go in that direction. Are we so very eager to give up our rights, and our common sense. Yes there are people that overeat, there are people out of work, there are people that seem to have no god given common sense at all.
While listening to the radio the other day on 101.5 I heard a caller call in and make the argument that as taxpayers she pays into the system and why should she pay for someone who is overweight? Heres a clue, “Most of those overweight people work 40 hours a week, they aren’t sitting at home eating bon bons while you're working and they have and are paying into that same system. “ That kind of ignorance pisses me off, because that is all it is Ignorance. What will be next? Rape victims? Victims of domestic abuse? or how about the cancer patients because you shouldn’t have to pay for them right??? Because in your delusional mind you seem to think that, that person could never be you.

felony if you don't have a seat-belt
or crate your dog in the car?
This past week our white house was caught in a blatant lie to the American public about what is really going on in the Middle East. To put it bluntly we were lied to, frankly that isn’t the sort of man I want to follow or the kind of government I want to pass on to my children and neither should you.
If you want a celebrity turn on your TV there called actors for a reason that isn’t and shouldn’t be what being the President is about. We deserve more than that, and our children and grandchildren do as well.
