This pain must come to an end.
I am so tired of our politicians playing us and dividing us.
It hurts my heart to see our World War II veterans treated with such great disregard and disrespect by those we entrusted to serve us. And if we do nothing we are at fault as well.
This is a time our WWII veterans need us most to honor them and respect them.
This is “The Greatest Generation.” These men and women need to know how much we appreciated their service to us, this nation and the world. This must be our first action together as citizens and demand that they reopen the WWII Veterans Memorial.
Stop for a moment and think about this question. Can one person make a difference? Yes, I know we can!
The joke is on the American people and it must come to an end.
Those we have entrusted with the day-to-day operation of these United States are misusing their powers and trust, entrusted to them by us, the American people who elected them to the office they hold and serve.
So how can one person make a difference?
By coming together as citizens, we can call for all elected officials from our local politicians and all the way up to our president to get back to work by putting this nation and its people first. We must put an end to their self-serving agendas and wasteful spending.
By our coming together “peacefully, orderly, and as Americans,” we can save this nation.
“We the people” can call for order by bringing our voices together and if need be by removing those from office who refuse to serve the people who empowered them.
Remember, we empowered them and what is good for us is good for them. They are not above the law. They are elected to serve us, the people.
They are not a controlling power. They must remember the freedom that this country was built on. We do not need nor want laws that restrict our freedoms. This land is our land and we do not need gatekeepers keeping its people chained and fearful of its government.
Their main focus must be putting its people and this nation
By fixing this runaway economy and putting its people back to work, we will ensure a tomorrow for its citizens.
Take action now. Call, write, email, or better yet make a face to face visit with your elected official and make it clear this type of leadership is killing America. It is hurting you and it will not be tolerated.
It doesn’t end here. We must stay involved and connected. It is time we tighten the leash and rein in our politicians.
We as a nation of power have entrusted this power to a weak-minded group of people who are supposed to be our leaders.
They took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
The Constitution of these United States is our guide to securing our great nation once again.
As citizens we are also responsible for protecting the Constitution of these United States.
We are lost and wandering and we have turned our backs on each other. We need to come together as one people, one nation. “Citizens United.”
The time is now to come together and make this nation great once again.
By living together with our focus on what made this nation great, we can make it even greater.
Our forefathers laid the foundation for this great nation. But who gave these politicians permission to dismantle and destroy the fabric that made this nation a place where people come to live in peace, harmony and freedom.
The answer is, yes.
One person can make a difference and, yes, we can come together!
Let’s put aside our difference and move this nation to greatness.
Please sign below “I Am Citizen!” with your name and location and email it to your friends to do the same.
Also, email this to your elected officials.
God bless you and God bless America.
I Am Citizen!
