We Want AMERICA Back!
Dr. Leonard M. Breure, PhD
Somehow we have allowed this great nation of ours to become derailed. Spend 5 minutes watching the news and it becomes obvious that we are no longer on the tracks that the Founding Fathers set us upon when they created this Republic that we call the United States of America. I don’t care if you are a Republican, Independent or Democrat, it doesn’t matter if you are Liberal, Moderate or Conservative, if you call this Nation home, it’s time to take AMERICA back!
One of the biggest problems is that many Americans don’t know who they are. Many of us know very little about the history and heritage that they are a part of. How many of you have ever read the Declaration of Independence? All of it? How many of you have ever read the Constitution of the United States? What about the Bill of Rights? Do you even know how many Amendments there are? Have you read anything written by the Founding Fathers? Even from just one of them? Why not?
If they saw what this Country that they gave up everything for has become, I believe that they would weep in sadness. For example, one of the basic tenants that this Nation was founded on was that of a weak National government and strong State governments.
The Bill of Rights, Amendment X
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”
Anyone care to tell me how we let the central government get so strong? It’s time to take AMERICA back!
Another huge problem is our government’s belief that we can just keep printing more money when we need it. It used to be that our national treasury was based on the gold standard. We only printed and put into circulation currency that we could back up with a like amount of gold. Anybody ever hear of Fort Knox? A number of years back this gold standard was thrown out. Need more money, can’t pay our bills? No problem we’ll just print more currency! Problem Solved! But it’s not. Our National debt and deficit are so far out of control that many experts say we will never be able to pay for it all! Politicians seem to have their heads buried so far in the sand that they have no clue as to what kind of financial mess we are leaving for future generations.
Maybe if we all saved our pennies? It time to take AMERICA back!
This one really gets me. How about these Bills presented to Congress that are thousands of pages long?
No one reads them in their entirety, yet our Law Makers vote on them all the time. No wonder we get such crazy legislation out of Washington. By the way, did you know that many of these Bills, if not most, aren’t written by our elected representatives or their staff? They are “sub-contracted” out or originally submitted by outside agencies and organizations.
Have you ever heard of the organization called ACORN? It’s time to take AMERICA back!
Watch the news for a couple of hours. CNN, FOX, MSNBC, it doesn’t matter. Would you even get the remotest hint that this Nation is at war? Two wars? Do you remember what it was like on the morning of September 12, 2001? How did we ever lose that? They call the “Police Action” of the early 50’s in Korea “The Forgotten War”. What about Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom? They are all but forgotten too. I know from many friends and family members that have been there, that there are MANY great things going on, but you never hear about them on the news. What about our service members that are honored for their heroism?
Not news worthy I guess. It’s time to take America back!
I served 19 years, 11 months and 8 days before I was medically discharged by the Army. 08 Mar 96 began a 12 year battle with the Veterans Administration. Now finally after all that time I have a 100% disability rating. At least I have good benefits now. Nobody said, “We’re going to war. We need to beef up the V.A. to help all these new veterans that we are creating”.
It’s starting to get better, but we still have a long, long way to go. It’s time to take AMERICA back!
I don’t even know where to start with the mess that Washington, big business and big banks have made of our economy. The housing crisis? Double digit unemployment? Inflation? Recession? I don’t know of anyone that’s not part of the elite rich that isn’t struggling. American’s have followed the examples of their national leaders. There’s no problem with spending money that we don’t have. We can always borrow more or get another credit card. Right?
“I can’t be overdrawn, I still have checks left.” It’s time to take AMERICA back!
This is where I start to offend some people. What part of “Illegal Alien” don’t they understand? They are criminals and should be treated as such. I have no problem with anyone that comes in though the front door, legally. But why should my tax dollars go to provide services and assistance to those that enter this country illegally
through the back door? The company that I hired to put a new roof on my house sent a group of “Latinos” to do the work. When I asked them if they had green cards, none of them did. Upon contacting the Sheriff’s Department, I was told that they had been instructed by I.C.E. NOT to arrest illegal aliens because I.C.E. didn’t have the resourses to deal with them! I threw them off the job and told the contractor to send another crew.
If no one let illegal aliens work for them, I think they might go home! It’s time to take AMERICA back!
I shouldn’t even get started on this one, but what about the constant threat to our gun rights?
The Bill of Rights, Amendment II
“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
The Supreme Court has confirmed the right to keep and bear arms in an individual right. Many states are enacting State Laws to ensure their citizens rights. Some states, such as Montana, are even passing laws to supersead Federal gun laws. So there is some hope, but many in Washington want to restrict our gun rights or even take them away all together. Then there is the International Treaty being pushed by the United Nations that would require every American to submit to the extremely restrictive details of the Treaty banning gun ownership.
What part of “shall NOT be infringed” don’t they understand. It’s time to take AMERICA back!
Finally and most importantly, it seems that we’ve thrown God out of America! We can’t have the Ten Commandments hanging on the wall in a court room. Drop “one Nation, under God” from the Pledge of Aleagence. No prayer in schools. Can’t have a Christmas scene on the Town Hall lawn. The list goes on and on.
“Blessed be the Nation who’s God is the Lord!” It’s time to take AMERICA back!
So what do we do? Our elected officals work for US. Pay attention to the issues. Follow how well they represent you. Write them, call them, stay on top of their voting records. Did you know that the entire House of Resprensentatives is up for election this fall? So is 1/3 of the Senate. Maybe it’s time to send some new faces to Washington? Maybe we need to remind them of the restrictions of the Constitution. I’ve sent all of my elected officials (including The President) a pocket sized copy of the Constitution (just in case they lost theirs). I firmly believe that we need to do everything legally possible to…
TAKE AMERICA BACK!.
