Today in America

Freedom. Liberty. The Pursuit of Happiness. All part of the American make - up, but is that still what America believes in? Do Americans even know what they believe in or why? How many people in Congress have actually READ the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence? Why does the Freedom of Speech get suppressed every single day? When did Conservatives get the label of "radical"? Americans are in the middle of a social and political crisis and still not even half of the eligible voters in this country will turn out on election day. Why are we afraid to speak our mind? We should be willing to die for the preservation of our great nation. Socialism is a real threat. The government has taken over almost every aspect of our lives. We must vote for change - not Obama's change, but a change of our own that we believe in. Change starts from the bottom up, not the top down. Revolution starts in our own community, not in Washington. We must become selfless and get away from the disease of greed that has overtaken this nation. We must return to the simple principles of our government and educate ourselves on government to know when it is corrupt. It is our responsibility to fix it and stand by our principles. Read our founding documents to your children.Tell them about our founding fathers. Raise them to be leaders of honor and integrity. Vote with your values. Refuse to be politically correct. Do not fear, but take action.

In the words of Abraham Lincoln:
"I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong."

In the words of Alexander Hamilton:
"A government ought to contain in itself every power requisite to the full accomplishment of the objects committed to its care, and to the complete execution of the trusts for which it is responsible, free from every other control but a regard to the public good and to the sense of the people."
