A Time for Choosing

“The Founding Fathers knew a government can't control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing.”
~Ronald Reagan; October 27, 1964

We face a great challenge in America, our Republic is on the brink of ruin, and much like Rome of old, and those in power are collecting power for nefarious purposes.

We've come to a crossroads of sorts, and the right path, while it looks scary and possibly difficult, is indeed the best path; the wisest path.

That path leads directly to the Tea Party.
I'm hearing murmurings that the "Tea Party" candidates aren't experienced, don't know what they are doing (has ANYONE looked at Obama's resumé?); that they will damage our Republic.

Nothing is further from the truth.

Aside from penning the Declaration of Independence, what experience did Thomas Jefferson have in political office?
George Washington was a farmer and a general; how did this qualify him to be president?
James Madison?
Benjamin Franklin?

Our country is SUPPOSED to be run by the common citizen; the very design is for average people to take the reins; do the job, and go home. “Next!” People who desire to do the right thing for their country, NOT always the best thing personally.
One of THE biggest problems we have is career politicians. Those who make themselves fat on the taxpayer dollar.
How many millionaires are there in the House and the Senate? Check how long they’ve been in office and you’ll see that what they are spending is OUR money! You have to work over three months of the year to pay your taxes; Americans will pay more taxes in 2010 than they will have spent on food, clothing and shelter combined for the year; part of those taxes go to pay the wages of the Congress and the Senate; take a hard look at those career politicians.

Will the inexperienced make a mistake? Probably, but that is nothing compared to what’s happening now, right now, in Washington D.C.

The candidates of the “Tea Party” as a whole are truly the best hope we have to break the stranglehold of career politicians.
We went to the Town hall meetings, they were a joke; we’ve had the rallies, the Left has denigrated our voice.
It’s time to stand up and vote for the BEST candidate you can; the candidate that will represent limited government as the Constitution requires, fiscal responsibility for the sake of our children and grandchildren and someone who has the integrity to do the right thing, to make the hard decisions that need to be made.

Our Founding Fathers had no Republican experience; they didn’t have a model for a Constitutional Republic to follow, and we’ve made it two centuries down the road; the Constitution is battered and bloodied, but if you look closely, you’ll see it’s not that way due to inexperience, but cold, calculated rejection.

It’s time to put new kids in the sandbox.

So true. Just yesterday during our lesson on the Constitution I was just telling the kids how much like Rome we are right now. They all loved studying Rome and totally understand what I meant.

And your last paragraph, absolutely. Cold, calculated rejection.
