It's tough being the underdog in any fight. But if a group of underdogs
get together and work together, they can win. That's the American
people up against big government. We the People are fighting the
The federal government has become too big, too bureaucratic, and too
controlling of our everyday lives, and they want to control us even more
every day, with every session of Congress. As a result, We the People
are losing more and more of our liberties every day.
This administration is trying to tell us which cars to drive, which
light bulbs to buy, what foods to eat, where not to take a vacation, how
much health care we can have, what to believe, who to believe, how to
live, how to spend our money, when to die, where to build a new plant
for a business, and what fairness ought to be – using our money!
Are we asleep, or just plain dumb and stupid?
Fairness is the liberty to make decisions about our lives and our money.
But this administration is doing everything it can to take away our
liberties with government mandates and income redistribution gimmicks
like the Buffet Rule.
To make matters worse, we continue to see our tax dollars wasted on
losing businesses and extravagant spending by government agencies while
the national debt continues out of control.
In the Holy Bible, David was selected to fight the giant Philistine
Goliath, because his brothers and the rest of the soldiers did not want
to take on the task. It's called a lack of courage. David was surely
courageous, and because he thought “outside the box,” he found a way to
defeat Goliath with a single stone and a sling shot.
He won! He killed Goliath.
The political class in Washington, D.C. has become the big government
Goliath. We the People must be an Army of Davids to take our liberties
back from Goliath.
We have more than one stone and a sling shot. We have the right and
responsibility to vote, the power of the Internet and the power of the
people. But we have to use that power wisely and collectively to stop
the erosion of our liberties.
Here are two things you can do:
• Join and support a citizens' organization dedicated to causes in which
you believe. My www.cainconnections.com website comes to mind where we
are focusing on solutions to our nation’s biggest problems. But there
are many other groups that can help keep you informed and involved. With
the right information, we can hold the people we elect accountable. We
must do so continually even after they are in office.
• Remain inspired that we can make some bold and significant changes in D.C.
Many members of the political class want you to believe bold changes
cannot be made, because many of them like the status quo, which will
eventually cause this country to collapse.
We cannot allow that to happen. It would be a tragedy for us all, and especially for our grandchildren.
"Let it be borne in mind that the tragedy of life does not lie in not
reaching your goals. The tragedy lies in having no goals to reach for." -
Dr. Benjamin E. Mays
Join the Army of Davids, so we can win!
