Whether anyone realizes it or not, we are in the middle of one of the most exciting eras in American history.
We are witnessing yet another chapter in America’s ongoing revolution.
Our Founder Fathers created a political system specifically designed to allow the people to change their government through an orderly system of elections and, if necessary, constitutional revision.
The United States of America in the summer of 2010 is in terrible trouble. We all know it. Our finances are a mess. Our two political parties epitomize the greed, the short-sightedness, and the lack of self-discipline that we all despise.
Others, too, are partly responsible for this morass: Big business’s behavior is disgusting. And the so-called mainstream media’s obvious leftward bias had roiled our political system, along with causing the demise of so many one-time bastions of the media.
Have you noticed that conservative-leaning TV, radio and papers are surviving the recession just fine? It is the leftist ones who are hemorrhaging readers, viewers, and listeners. Do you think there might be a message in there somewhere?
Too many Americans — and uninvited visitors, too — see the government as a hand-out machine with no financial consequences.
The president of the United States appears oblivious to all that is happening around him. Clearly in over his head, he rigidly sticks to the wrong priorities — he identifies with the wrong side of almost every major national argument — and he has repeatedly chosen the wrong way of enacting laws that a majority of the American people oppose.
All of this has to change and is going to change after the much-needed major mid-course correction that is coming in November.
Why is this exciting?
Because the Founding Fathers’ system is working!
The people are ticked off, and they will order the government to change this November by firing dozens of incumbents. And if the government does not listen to the people after this election, as Obama, Pelosi, and Reid have not, then in 2012 the people will again force change by firing even more of those who hold these high offices.
As a conservative it is indeed an exciting time.
Could we soon see a reversal of the trend toward more and more government as the panacea for all our ills?
Could we soon see policies enacted to lower the disgustingly enormous national debt?
Could America, the home of risk and reward and boldness and innovation, soon re-emerge as the leader she was destined to be?
Could we, the American People, soon have a federal government that listens to us and does what we want?
The answer will come in the 2010 and 2012 elections.
