These days it’s tough to keep up: each day brings a new threat, a new disaster, a new outrage perpetrated by the government we once trusted to honor and protect our Constitution. Devastation in Haiti, Perfidy in our Capitol, Corruption, Collusion, and Media lies inundate us constantly. And yet…each day too, we find reasons to continue with hope and action. In Massachusetts, Scott Brown is showing clear signs of being able to beat the DNC rubber stamp candidate Martha Coakley, going from a 9 point lead to dead heat to near underdog by 4 points in a number of days, and raising a million dollars a day, fueled by the efforts of thousands of committed volunteers from neighboring states. Governors’ races in New Jersey and Virginia overturned Democrats’ stranglehold on them recently, and the latest news is that pResident SoetorObama’s trip to Massachusetts has been cancelled for fear his history making low poll numbers will hurt his minions’ chances. While this may not be enough for most of us, it is a clear indication that the delusional mandate he once claimed to enjoy has faded, if indeed it ever really existed, and droves of Obama voters have turned their backs in disgust at his pathetic performance. A step at a time, things are beginning to turn around. Yes, we have a great deal of work to do; we must maintain constant vigilance, keep learning and sharing the truth, networking and supporting one anothers’ work. The 912 Project, Constitutional Emergency, FreedomForce.us, and Continental Congress 2009 are but a few of these dedicated, hard working entities who are helping to organize, share information and find ways to take our country back. Visit the blogrolls– especially that of Logistics Monster, and PLEASE consider a donation and/or subscription to help her continue to keep us informed with the highest quality substantiated research on the web– on these and other pages to stay informed; listen to radio shows and do whatever you can to further the cause and stay the course for America.
Increasing numbers of Americans becoming active in the political system; having learned that they cannot trust the pablum pushed on them by corporate and government run media, they are coming to the realization that they need to question the Party Line, the Newspeak and the out and out Lies with which they are assaulted on a daily basis. They are attending town meetings, talking to friends and neighbors, going to Tea Parties and getting motivated toward legal activism.
Today on C-Span I saw a Town Meeting from Oklahoma with Senator Tom Coburn. Irrespective of what one thinks of him, he observed that currently, our Government bureaucracy, contrary to abiding by the “Innocent Until Proven Guilty” concept of American law, treats American citizens as guilty until proven innocent, and by so doing, has garnered mistrust to the extent that all credibility is lost in the perception of the American public. while there may be no easy fix for this, the first step is indeed recognition of the problem.
That is not to say we should ever give up. Just read Hinckley v. PSE&G, better known as Erin Brockvich’s first case, to remember that sometimes, the right side DOES win, and justice prevails. She convinced Ed Masry, the attorney who introduced her to the case, which started out as a simple pro bono real estate case, to look further and ended up with a landmark case against the corrupt energy company.
When times get tough–and they continue to get tougher every day–only two things can happen:
1) The tide will turn with the resolve of the righteous to forge ahead; or
2) The Purveyors of Evil will silence the Just with threats.
It is up to us what we do next. My guess is that Americans, as always, will continue to weather the gathering storm and prevail over the darkness that now faces them.
And, most importantly, remember and honor the sacrifices of those who are no longer with us. Rest In Peace, O Honored Ones.
