My Father wasn’t predisposed to verbal displays of affection. Which is ironic, since he was an educated man of words…I can count on one hand the number of times he said he loved me and have fingers left over. This might upset some people, but it’s OK.
In January 1983, after I was nearly killed in a motorcycle accident and lay in traction for a month, he answered my call. We spoke the night I got home. I bemoaned the fact that the cupboards were bare and the dishes were dirty (I clearly didn’t plan for this event). He told me to stop worrying and go to sleep. The next morning the telephone woke me. It was my Dad. He was at the gate of the apartment complex and needed to be “buzzed in”. He spent the next two weeks cooking meals, cleaning clothes and washing dishes. The day he returned to New Orleans, the cupboards were fully stocked.
If there’s one thing to be learned from that experience, it’s that actions speak louder than words. This is particularly important in this day of mass media personality cults when, despite all actions to the contrary, an empty suit still gets a pass from the media simply because he tells people what they want to hear.
Tea Party folks, be wary of this trap. Keep an eye on politicians from every Party. Hold all of them to task. Forget what they say; watch what they do. Above all, place principles before personalities.
The United States has always had one Constitution and one government, characterized by stable, peaceful transfer of power from one Administration to another…one Congress to the next. America became the most prosperous nation, with the highest standard of living and the most innovative people who’ve enjoyed the greatest personal liberties in the history of the world because of this stability.
Today our Constitution isn’t being followed. If we don’t adhere to our Constitution, we’ll cease to be a great nation ruled by law, and become exactly that against which our Founding Fathers revolted. A citizenry of subjects ruled by the whims of flawed human beings.
We cannot, dare I say we must not allow this to happen. Together, we must defend our country and defend our way of life.
The U.S. Constitution begins with three simple words:
We the People.
We are the People. We the People must question authority. We the People must speak the truth. There’s more at stake here than offending someone’s regressive socialist sensibilities. Our country’s future depends on scrapping political correctness and speaking without fear. We must protect our Constitution and the government it established, including checks and balances.
The wolf has not passed by our door. There’s a ravenous pack of wolves in Washington DC. They call themselves progressives. They infect both Parties.
There’s been a paradigm shift in American politics, it’s no longer about who’s an R and who’s a D. It’s about who’s a Conservative Vs who’s a progressive. Progressives want, cherish, crave, need and lust after unbridled power. Do not give it to them. The power belongs with We the People.
We are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. Stand up for your God given rights! Let no mortal take them from you.
In times of fear and uncertainty remember:
Evil is powerless when the good are unafraid.
