United States

#1 Dec 28, 2005
This is not an administration of bright angels but has turned into something even darker than any of us could have imagined. We as Americans are aghast to see our Federal Government manipulating and controlling the media and the free press, and we are aghast to see the withholding of information from the American public and the callous disregard for human suffering and loss of lives in Iraq, New Orleans, and Louisiana. I too read my Bible, and it tells me that you shall know them by their fruits and it also tells me, beware of he that sows doubt and discord among the people. Where are we as Americans to take our Country back? Where are we as the People to make sure our children, and our grandchildren and future generations know God, America and Freedom just as we all knew it because of the fight and sacrifice of my father, your father and everyone elseís father who was willing to risk everything for God, Freedom, their Country, and their fellow man?

Where are we? The government, this administration and elected officials will not give us our Country back, we must all work together to take it back now. Our founding fathers Jefferson, Madison, Washington, Adams and otherís, warned us that Tyranny and Oppression when it comes shall come under the guise of a foreign enemy. Jefferson himself took an oath upon the altar of the almighty and plead eternal hostility against tyranny of any form over the mind of man. Yet all around us every day we are witnessing martial law being forced upon on the streets of America and we are seeing our most fundamental rights of privacy and protections being stripped from us and we are losing every sense of what it is to be a free American in a free democratic society. People gave their hearts, their minds, their souls to assure America would always be Free for them, their families and all future generations.

I am not interested in a vision that calls for a new world community in this country at the expense of being an American. I am not interested in a world view that takes away my right to be Free from fear and want and my right of Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion, just as itís stated on back of every World War II medal in this Country. I want my children, your children, my grandchildren and yours, to be proud of me and you, just like we are proud of those who went before us, who fought for our Country, fought for our freedoms and made us great. We as a people are being manipulated, controlled, deceived and denied our rights to be Free and to be an American. We cannot wait any longer to take our Country back. Their must be an immediate groundswell and a call for change from the American people and it must begin now. We will not get this time back, and we must act, we have to act, the time is now. We have every right to insist that of paramount importance is that we remain a free America, we keep our identity, and that the world continue to look upon us as a free democratic society. We can no longer afford the excuse of being caught up in our busy lives when the future of our Country, our grandchildren, and future generations are at risk. No generation before us ever did that. And never let it be said that we were the first.

We must take America back and we must take her back now. This movement must come from the people. It must begin now. Each and every one of us must take part in letting our voices and our resolve be heard in our cities, our towns, our states and throughout the Country. We cannot wait any longer. We must act now.

Hate to say, but most are probably parked in the barco-lounger, catching up on re-runs of "Desparate Housewives", and sleeping off the extra helpings of holiday meals. From where I stand, most Americans are extremely fat and just happy enough to raise an eyebrow at suspect government behaviour, but drowned in apathy when it comes time to affect a change. People feign interest and care in the war in Iraq, but unless it's your kid getting sent home in the body bag, they are too easily distracted by the latest antics of Brad, Jennifer, and Angelina. The same with Katrina -- the "let's blame the government" reaction was just as sickening as the government's slow response. Americans expect a hand-out when their cable bill arrives and they've spent their last dollar on a 132oz big gulp and slim-jims at the 7-11. And they'll sue until they get it. What happened to responsiblity and ownership? This starts at home, not with the government.
