How times have changed..just 10 years ago, after the horrible unspeakable tragedy, flags were flown from every home, and overpass....help flowed to New York in the form of blood donations, fire fighters and rescue workers flew in from all 50 states, funds were set up for survivors and loved ones, everyone from every part of this great country came together as never before in my lifetime....prayers were sent to God above for comfort, healing and encouragement....and He did answer many times over...
Flash forward to 2011..our country is split deeply , mob rule is creeping in, and a offensive Moslem mosqueis being built close to ground zero...the firefighters that you see above were not even invited to the 10th year memorial as there "wasn't enough room" and prayer is not allowed. TV news is full of violent accusations and name calling...mainly by those who have an agenda of progressive double speak.
Friends, the Tea Party is made of up people like yourself, moms and dads, grandparents, working class people, who have gotten up off their couches, out of their work trucks, and raised their voices...the great majority of Americans who never really get involved in politics except to vote.
People who don't like conflict and avoid confrontation, who normally just want to live their lives in peace and quiet. The total agenda of the Tea Party is for a small efficient government, lower taxes, balanced budget and lower deficit. We want all Americans to succeed and we believe the best way to succeed is to get our government to follow the Constitution as it was written. In some ways, like our founding fathers who left their farms and somewhat comfortable lives to sacrifice for freedom..many of them died penniless after the war but their sacrifice enabled our life yet today but for how long?
We want government to get out of the way of small business as this is what creates jobs and is the backbone of our great nation. Government cannot create jobs!
We want term limits so corruption which is common place in Washington D.C. can be cut off.
We want our children and grandchildren to grow up free without owing the government thousands of dollars...our dear baby grandson owes the government $46,000 just by being born..ask yourself, is this right?
A book you will find interesting is Anne Coulter's Demonic...she goes back in history and traces mob rule which is fascinating...compares our American Revolution with the French Revolution ...we get books on cd and listen to them while we travel for work...we both learned so much about the French revolution..how terrible and bloody it was, how atheistic compared to our American one which was Christian..did you know that Thomas Paine was involved in the French Revolution? He almost got the guillotine himself when the mob turned on him...and only through the intervention by James Monroe did he secure his release.
Hope if you are reading this and thinking about the last 10 years...what will the next 10 be like? Its up to all of us in next years election to decide if we want to keep going in the direction the country is headed...we are on the brink.....can we afford another 4 years with the current regime in the White House and Congress? think and pray about it..please.. spread the word....
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
