What I don't think you're getting Dean is that many here who
call for change want what I believe to be the same thing as
you - a RETURN to Constitutional government. We have long
ago wandered away from the vision the founding fathers
laid down for us. Our public servants now think the public is
here to serve them.
Many of the issues that divided the christian right in America
from the liberal left have been trumped by more pressing issues
that have arisen of late.
Despite the lip service given by both Presidents Bush, I think
many christians have realized that they were being used to
further a cause that was less than godly, or moral for that
matter. Sure, Sadam Hussein was a bad guy but we all know
that we were lied to get into the war in the first place.
Now, our economy is gutted, our treasury depleted and our sons
and daughters are being sent off to die on the opposite side of the
world. As surely as abortion is murder, so is war. Our occupation
of Iraq does not make us one iota safer.
Right or left we have a critical task at hand and that is to restore
our government to it's constitutional boundaries and to restore
american business and industry. Without jobs there is no future
for our children.
Our leaders have sold us out to the highest bidder and now
slave labor in 3rd world countries makes all our consumer
goods. We rebuilt much of the rest of the world after WW2
and now we are forced to beg to foreign nations to help
finance our national debt! WE never signed away our sovereignty,
our government SOLD US and OUR CHILDREN into DEBT SLAVERY
to the very communist power we had sought to contain a half
They make a mockery of every US soldier who
died fighting in Korea and Vietnam just so we can stroll through
Wallyworld and buy everything for a few dollars less. We must
pay full price one way or the other.
Americans need to unite behind our Constitution, the greatest
agreement among men every written. Whether or not you think
we are a Christian nation or not we know for certain that where
our government is heading is certain destruction of everything
our forefathers have sweated, bled and died to build.
