Here is an excerpt from Jenny Beth Martin’s Determination posting;
The challenge is daunting especially when looking at what has happened in America in just the past week. But, compared to other challenges America has faced in her history, is this challenge truly impossible for us? Our country started against all odds when a ragtag army stood up to the greatest empire in the world and demanded their freedom. Many said it could not be done. Most governments are designed to restrict the governed but we are a government of the people, by the people, for the people. Our country grew from a small nation to one capable of saving the world from Nazism. We defeated communism in the Cold War. Our free market system invented the modern world: light bulbs, telephones, airplanes, personal computers, ipods, iphones, and Google. Americans have consistently taken the more difficult road, beat the odds, and created a better future than most thought possible.
Our job is to remind our fellow citizens that our Constitution and the rights guaranteed therein are what made America’s accomplishments possible. We must remind these citizens what is a stake and what the two choices for America’s future are. We must remind them that our choice for freedom is what they want for America as well. It will not be easy. Like the coordinators who have grim determination and cannot rest without thinking about all they are capable of doing to preserve our freedom, we too must evaluate our actions through Election Day and immediately following so our country’s voters choose the future of freedom on November 6. Join us to make the call, walk the neighborhoods, send the postcards, and do all the work it takes to insure there are more of us who cherish freedom than those who are willing to slide into serfdom on November 6. Then be prepared to keep fighting as soon as elections are over because the work of accountability will be just as urgent and perhaps even more difficult.
We can still beat the odds! We can prevent America’s bankruptcy and create a more prosperous America than ever. If, today, right now, we make the right choice for the vision of our future and fight “when our victory will be sure and not too costly.”
Let us have the determination, the boldness, the persistence, the courage, the perseverance, against all odds to create a more productive, prolific, prosperous, and plentiful America than ever before!
