Howdy from Texas!!!
“But the mild voice of reason, pleading the cause of an enlarged and permanent interest, is but too often drowned before public bodies as well as individuals, by the clamours of an impatient avidity for immediate and immoderate gain.”
– James Madison
The rising voice of the American people is mild, by this I mean reasonable, and it is being drowned out by a clamorous Congress and Administration seeking immediate gain. It is not unreasonable that the people want to be heard: Our forefathers had a great respect for the “Genius of the People.” It is not unreasonable to want:
A solvent budget
An economy based on honest, free enterprise,
Borders that are secured,
States supporting each other,
States regaining adequate sovereignty,
Terrorism taken seriously,
Respect for our allies,
Health care that remains in the hands of the caregiver and not in the grips of the Government,
The respect and adherence for the Constitution and its principles,
A government that does not prohibit the religious freedom of the people.
We as citizens plead for a selflessness from our leaders that reflects the magnificence, sacrifice, vision, and love of country and country men that embodied our founding fathers.
Our liberty, our Republic, our sacred honor, relies upon it.
