  • America is dying. The factory workers, the veterans from what is called the Greatest Generation, are dying at a rate of 1,000 a day and as they die so dies America.
    They worked and fought as did our founding fathers and those during the Civil War to preserve our nation, these United States.
    And we today are giving it all away. We allow each and every day those 546 in Washington to destroy this land by the passing of one piece of legislation a day.
    They thrive on the fact that we Americans don’t care, that we are apathetic, that we fail to respond at the polling place and/or refuse to attempt to change anything.
    Has anyone bothered to look at the results of the candidate filings of  Feb. 25, 2014.
    Across this nation some 60 percent of the incumbents go unopposed. We may complain, we may voice an opinion, we may demand change yet we fail to take a stand and/or seek to run for office.
    You cannot fix what you believe is broken without standing up for what we all believe — that’s assuming you care.
    Who said that giving away everything we worked for and died for is the right thing to do.
    Let me tell you, it is the self-serving 546 in Washington. They do what they want when they want without any regard for ‘We the People’ — 435 in Congress, 100 in the Senate, nine on the Supreme Court and the vice-president and president.
    Either you put down your beer, turn off the game, get off the couch and do something now or you’ll be digging deeper into your pockets and continue to give away America.
    Tell this to the soon-to-be-gone Greatest Generation, ‘Thanks for what you did then’, but no thanks, I am content with texting, paying $5 for gasoline, $3 for a hamburger, continued increases in taxes, drinking my beer and watching the game.
    As the 546 enjoying premium health insurance, fat retirements and contributions from lobbyists.
    Remember this, the game your watching, someone loses — that someone is YOU.
    You cannote vote out an unopposed incumbent. Go and seek an office before March 25, 2014.
    We can never recover from this devastating financial burden. We can only hope to stop the slide.
    Only you make the change to preserve the America for those who fought and died. Do it for your grandchildren. Acirema — that’s America spelled backwards and that’s where we are today, backwards.
    Those 546 have become destructive, altering our rights and so it’s evident that We the People shall remove them.
    Page 2 of 2 - When a long train of abuses and usurpation, pursuing invariably the same object evinces design to reduce the munder absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government... these 546.
