This Republic, The United States of America is one of the greatest, longest Constitutionally run government the world has ever witnessed and now many citizens are finally giving up on it. With so many years of our elected officials continually working to destroy our way of life instead of enhancing it, working harder to get re-elected at the hands of lobbyists and special interest groups along with their own personal agenda the great individuals across the lane have finally said enough already.
The Tea Party Movement started just before the 2010 elections to shoot out we are “taxed enough already” and most of congress turned a deaf ear only to find this organization would be the downfall of many a politicians careers. The common everyday citizen doesn’t care about the Republican agenda, or the Democratic agenda any longer, they care about the American agenda once again.
Citizens all across the nation are taking heed to all that has been said concerning the direction our nation has traveled over the past 50 years and they are frightened. The fear the 17 trillion dollar national debt, they fear the blatant disregard our politicians have for our Constitution and all the liberties it provides us. The Patriots of this nation are ready to stand together once again as they had to do so many years ago fighting against a government that had an agenda contrary to their wants and beliefs.
As I traveled across the country talking to individuals during the 2010 campaign I realized just how upset the common folks were. Their stories were haunting. Losing their jobs, their houses and even some lost their families do to the economic hardship our government created for many of them.
The citizens are ready to make a statement for all to hear. They are crying out loud through the hillsides and the meadows, along the mountain tops and across the rivers hoping their voices will finally be heard by candidates who are once again running for America and it’s values instead of the good ole boys buddy system many have become extremely accustomed too. Many have stated they want a candidate who will listen to the issues that are important to them not dictate what they feel strongly about.
The time is now as good people all over the nation gather to discuss running for office to remove those entrenched in the political arena secluded from reality for far too long. We have a re-birth of individuals fed up with politics as usual, a resurgence of a love for country that trumps those with a love for the power associated with our Congress. This next election will be one that will be remembered for a long long time. We will see a swing in voters placing their ballots for an individual and not a political party, and that will be good.
Maybe, just maybe then we will stop spending trillions of dollars a year that we don’t have to spend just to shore up some free program to continue to get votes. Maybe, just maybe then we will see our congress working to achieve greatness once again by holding themselves accountable to do what is right for America and not special interest. We still are a long way from election night but there will be changes that we, patriots of this great nation, that we can believe in finally.
