I received a text message from a friend late last night which said:
“Now I know how you feel when Auburn wins.”
Jim woke me up last night to tell me the news. While the three-ring media circus leading up to this event is finally over, I could not shake this feeling of dread. I had to remind myself that even though the man I wanted to win did not, the one that did works for me and the other 300 million Americans who live in this great land!
Taking my cue from BlackFive, I will now stand up and demand that the man in charge listen. And I hope others will do the same.
Demand that President Obama not cut and run from Iraq or Afghanistan.
Demand that President Obama not allow tyrants and thugs to threaten us our the world with nuclear weapons.
Demand that he respect our constitutional rights regarding free speech and gun ownership.
Demand that our “wealth” will not be “shared” with some lazy, no account, welfare dirtbags who would rather have a hand-out than a hand up to something better.
Demand that President Barack Obama respect the sacrifices of the great men and women who keep this nation the last best hope for those that yearn for freedom and keep us from going gently into that good-night.
God bless those who have fought for our freedom to choose who we want to lead us. I think too often we forget how blessed we really are to live as free people. With that freedom comes responsibility, and that my friends, is in OUR HANDS.
“There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our overthrow. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence. I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men and become the instruments of their own undoing.” — Daniel Webster
Stand, and be heard.
What a powerful reminder, Nicki – our leaders work for US!
