Throw the Bums Out!

"Ask not, what your country can do for you...
Ask, what you can do for your country!"
Can you imagine a Democrat making that statement today?
Nor can I.

I'm exasperated.
The country seems to have lost its rudder.
Our major news sources aid and abet the enemy, and a large section of the population blames our ills on our government and the folks that are risking their lives to protect us.
(And amazingly, the folks that have the most to lose should our enemy be successful...
women, homosexuals, etc....
are frequently the most anti-war and anti- present government! Ludicrous.)
We are rapidly approaching the time when we can no longer meet the payment requirement of our entitlement programs.... medicare, medicaid, and Social Security.

So as I say, I'm exasperated. I know the feeling of being dissatisfied.
We have a government of Socialists, and near-Socialists,
and I know who's to blame!

I want change.
I want people to take responsibility for their own lives, their own messes.
I want people to say "I'm sorry" and mean it.
I want to get back to a place where my candidate is willing to do hard things, because it is what must be done.

I'm tired of the bureaucratic waste and corruption that comes with big government.
I think government has to provide a minimal safety net,
then rehabilitation/education for those that fall from a successful life, but I know those services must be limited, or waste, fraud, and corruption eat them up.

I'm tired of voting against the other candidate, rather than for my candidate.

Have you ever taken a look at the Libertarian party?
I like almost everything about their platform, except I get the impression they'd be near-isolationists so far as National Defense is concerned.
In the last election, I voted for Libertarian candidates where they were running, with the exception of the office of President.

"If ya wanta keep gettin' what you're gettin', keep doin' what you're doin'."
That's a mantra I have repeated on many occasions to Big Bubba.
But it readily applies here too, doesn't it?
I refuse to vote for someone that doesn't know what the definition of the word "is" is,
but voting for a near-Socialist has made me hold my nose as I pull the lever.

-Lookin' at the man in the mirror, I have identified who needs to initiate the change.
I'm ready for it...
I hope you are too.
I don't know how long it will take for our dissatisfaction to register, but the sooner we all express our rage about the present situation, the sooner change can happen.

Therefore, I'd like you to take a look at this candidate,
a "Pitchpull" reader who has shared his thoughts with us.
I like much of what he says.
I think it would be wonderful if he got enough votes to appear on the National radar screen.
Ready for a change?
Bloggers in general- here's our chance to shake the system and have a little fun-
Christian bloggers... here's a chance to make an important point, and maybe we can elect someone that can remember where the billing records are.

If you agree with me, and you find Cary's ideas similar to yours,
why not consider writing him in?
And in local/State elections, you could do worse than voting for a Libertarian!
Let's express our rage. Let's start makin' the change.
Let's quit doin' what we've been doin'!

Thanks, Graybeard.

I appreciate the mention, and the link. Like I say a time or two on my blog - it's time this country was taken back by We the People.

Career Politicians need to know that We are tired of them lining their pockets. We need to let them know that We are tired of watching them tear this country apart form the inside out.

If you'd like the code for the sidebar banner, drop me a line.

Act responsibly, be responsible for your actions!

I saw the movie Casablanca the first time this weekend. I didn't know what to expect, but it was amazing.

I think there is a great quote that sums things up nicely:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rick: Don't you sometimes wonder if it's worth all this? I mean what you're fighting for.

Victor Laszlo: You might as well question why we breathe. If we stop breathing, we'll die. If we stop fighting our enemies, the world will die.
