Davey Crockett mad the following speech in the Senate. This is the attitude that will save America from its current situation. Anything less is just a temporary fix. The speech is fairly long, but I highly recommend all Americans read it so they understand the role government is supposed to play according to the constitution.

Col. Crockett's speech put me into tears, I admit.

I wish we had men like this to represent us.

He actually tried to know his constituents, he tried to understand what they needed and to represent them accordingly.

He realized when he was clearly wrong, and faced up to it.

We have nothing like this today in our joke of a system.

I pray that we will one day be graced by the presence of such great and honorable men once again. And that our nation will come back to life anew.

How we need this man desperately today.

But are not many of you like this man? I believe in my heart many of you are. And will prove to be made of the same spirit that these great men were, by your acts not your words.

What do we have today?

Criminals, usurpers, thieves, fraudsters, tyrants, liars.

Our system has been stolen from us, our land taken, our wealth sucked dry, our great minds sapped by lies, and so on and so forth.

If Crockett were alive today, he would have revolted years ago.

Our forefathers turn in their graves because we are too patient, hell dare I say we are cowards? Let it not be so I plead.

We must stand up alone because if we wait for others to stand, we will all be sitting here forever.

I must say I was greatly impressed with that speech. If only those in politics today were aware of the message in it. Star and flag for you sir, for bringing this to my attention.
