Political Personal ResponsibilityA Zen Thing . Articles of Interest . News . OffTopic
For the first time in my adult life I publicly endorsed a candidate, Fred Thompson. Well it is now old news that he withdrew his bid for President. From my perspective this was a sad day for Conservative, Federalists who want to preserve our country and stop the march to Socialism and Communism. That one sentence probably alienated 90% of my visitors but so be it. The point is that in the process of reflecting on why my candidate falter, I had an epiphany. Regardless of the candidate we elect to any given office, WE are responsible. I say this because myself and others who support(ed) Fred Thompson felt hope was lost when he stepped down. Our choices are standard politicians (on both sides) that stand on long records of lying and pandering to every special interest group. The very people our fore fathers fought to overcome have taken over the system they created!
What does this have to do with personal responsibility? In thinking this over it hit me that we do not need Fred Thompson, we need, ‘We the People‘. Regardless of who is elected locally or Federally we the people have the power to make sure they do their jobs and follow the law. The problem is it is hard, very hard. But if I am going to be part of the solution then I need to take some responsibility. So do you! The responsibility to be willing to spill some tea into the harbor. The responsibility to make sure our laws are followed by all government officials. The responsibility to argue and be involved. These are Conservative ideals. No longer can I remain silent, nor can you, Conservative or Not. To be dramatic, these may very well be the final days of this Republic and I’d hate to think I could have stopped the end if only I had acted. This is a call to action for all Americans who are interested in saving this country from politicians, foreign interests, lawyers and worse. I call you to rally not behind me but behind the American Flag, the Constitution and the ideals of our founding fathers.
