Hello fellow American!
Yes, this is political, no, it is not offensive. None of us will know freedom for much longer if we do not pull together (despite whatever petty differences in opinion we may have) to protect our Founding Father’s greatest work. This is how to ensure that our great Constitution and all the freedoms that are guaranteed by it survive.
I went to a ”town hall” meeting recently and met our district congressman. If you are interested, I live in Oklahoma and we are in congressional District 2. Markwayne Mullin is our representative. Part of his little speech really struck me. When he was finished I just thought to myself ”it’s OUR fault.” Things are the way they are because not enough of us take the time to speak up. What Mr. Mullin said was that an elected official (no matter what type of office) considers correspondence from 1%, yes, just ONE PERCENT of the population in his/her district to be evidence of public opinion.
I refuse to believe that it is too late to make a difference. I know that most of us work full time and the rest of us are extremely busy otherwise, no matter the circumstance the time for excuses has lapsed.
Earlier I said ”it’s OUR fault.” I will explain this now. Like I said since we are productive members of society- either employees, retirees, volunteers, mothers, home educators, entrepreneurs, veterans, elders and children, we are busy, busy, busy. We don’t have time to read a magazine article let alone WRITE a letter or an email…right? Well we have to make time, because the rest of society, the ones living off of our hard work and sacrifices, are the ones who’s voices are being heard. They have all the time in the world to MAKE themselves heard while we provide them that free time, let’s drown out their voice once and for all.
Dedicate AT LEAST 15 or 20 minutes just once a week to write your opinions on a particular issue and forward it (via post or internet) to the appropriate office. If each of us, and everyone that we know, and so on do this we could restore a ”government FOR the people BY the people.” No matter what state, district, county, zone, or precinct you live in, no matter what battles you choose, just pick an issue and an office and let your beliefs be heard! Let’s be that 1%, hell, let’s make it 10 or 15% and really make a difference!
Do not send this to anyone who is for communism, gun control, amending the constitution, or more government assisted programs, these are the voices we are trying to drown out.
