Funny thing – one of my all time favorite movies is Independence Day. I believe as the day draws nearer to the 4th we need to reflect on where we have been and where we are and where we are headed. We can look at it with two perspectives. First if it keeps on the path that we are headed which bodes disaster or the path that we as Active Americans and 912ers endeavor.
Sometimes people might feel that it is ok to continue on, buy groceries, go to work, church, dinner with friends and ….repeat. It is not! I had dinner with friends on Friday and one of my friends – God Bless her – but she was shocked when I told her ( BTW SHE IS A LIBERAL) that our country is becoming socialist and that there are communist, fascist, progressives in power and she was SHOCKED. She did not believe me; she dismissed me with the comment “like that really worked?”…”Don’t people know history?” Then it was what do you want for dinner? Man it still suprises me that people really don’t understand. No! “people” do not know history and “people” are not paying attention. One of the girls at the table said well according to Mike Moore capitalism isn’t really working either. ( for a second I prayed that God give me patience. ) the conversation continued and even with all the tools I have in my memory banks it led to a heated and exciting conversation. It is uncomfortable. I do not enjoy it all the time, sometimes I just want to have a meal with old friends. We cannot do that anymore. We have to be a little uncomfortable. I thank God for giving me the knowledge and the know how.
There are a lot of candidates from different parties and some that are unaffiliated that are quality, honest candidates. We can educate ourselves on the candidates and back them. We have to. Finances are tight, yea well so are mine. Donate $9.12 to each of the candidates you like and then work on their campaign. That is the ONLY WAY we will win this. I personally am dedicating every Wednesday night thru the Summer and a number of weekends to those quality candidates that I personally support. For the record they are from different parties. I hope to see all of you making calls and getting active. If you need suggestions, and are not sure where to start, check out our web site and the blogs posted by others and the candidates. We also can make calls on our website for candidates. We will have stuff coming up so please stay involved. We are planning a meeting in August and then two in September and October to prepare for the HUGE election. The candidates will be the focus. We must not allow ourselves go down with out a fight. Educate yourselves. Get involved!
We must celebrate OUR INDEPENDENCE DAY!
