I posted something a kin to this on another thread, but i felt so compelled to share my feelings on this, that i would post this as a letter to the
people. Any replies would be fantastic.....who will stand.
It is an unfortunate state that "We the People" are in. It troubles me that the current state of affairs of our government has been allowed to
become what it has, but what are we as a country to do?
We cannot sit by idly by while this government becomes an oppression on the people it was designed to serve and protect.
The greed and special interests of those charged to look after the well being of this country has reached a breaking point. Whether you are liberal or
conservative, republican or democrat, it no longer matters, this encompasses all and dissolves all party lines.
Gone are the days when we could battle it out over left and right, liberal or conservative. We are fast becoming a nation when having these two sides
was a luxury. Now we have to chose to stand together so that our children and grand children will have the opportunities we were afforded.
But in the aftermath there is always hope, should the time come we have to stand once again as our forefathers did against tyranny and oppression , we
will, and we will prevail, because deep within us we know its the very future of our way of life we wish to pass on to the next generation. It is in
our blood,it is our responsibility,it is what we were charged with by our founding fathers as Americans, to rise when we are called upon to do so.
"In matters of style, swim with the current;
In matters of principle, stand like a rock"
"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong
will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy,
the forerunner of death to the public liberty.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that
this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What
signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
both quotes by Thomas Jefferson
