There was a gentleman that, while in a position similar to that of this president, initiated a number of public construction programs and government initiatives to stem economic setbacks and unemployment. When those results failed to meet his vision, he began a push for government control of business. Finally, he instituted a system of wage and price controls. Does any of this sound familiar? You may know of him. He was an Italian. He went by the name Benito Mussolini.
Democracy is not the desired end for people like him or any others that don’t represent you when they cast their votes, write their bills and make their decisions. To them, democracy is a means to an end. We are in danger, and these days may be among our final as a society free to achieve our aspirations & enjoy the fruits of our accomplishments! You may be in the final days of having a voice and ability to exercise your actionable right to reclaim the government of our beloved republic.
You feel something amiss weighing upon you heavily. You know things are misaligned with that which our founders provided us. John Hancock told us the following in the Declaration of Independence:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..."
When government no longer recognizes its position as representatives of the people, sent by the people, working FOR the people, then it becomes a cesspool of greed and power-hungry hypocrisy in desperate need of draining, sterilization and reclamation! Our government is now a bloated model of inefficiency & bureaucracy and a swamp of corruption & spending that must be drained & dried so we might plant the seeds of proven & effective ideas in the fertile soils that remain… soils that remain rich by the promise of WE THE PEOPLE turning under those entities that sprout forth voting, writing or otherwise espousing anything with less than their CONSTITUENT’S interests at heart. WE START NOW!!! WE are the pumps; WE are the plows; WE OURSELVES are to blame for the unconscionable character of our federal, state and local government officials, and ONLY WE can empower ourselves to clean these houses!
So yes… I’m angry; I'm scared; I'm saddened. I'm also inspired by all the now-enlightened I witness on the street and hear in conversation, each asking a very simple question: “WHY isn’t somebody doing something?” Look around you… to your left… to your right… before & behind you. THIS is the change you voted for!
As we empower & elevate ourselves above this maelstrom of discontent & darkness, I see clearly that critical mass has been achieved. Critical mass has been achieved, and we will not be relegated to the dusty & dimly-lit museum halls of retired ideals & irrelevance; we will not be led like sheep through the left or right-wing gates of an ideological slaughterhouse, bludgeoned & silenced by their defamation & tactics; we will not be labeled dissenters for holding dear the principals that make this the greatest nation on Earth. But do we reject their efforts to commit upon us these violations? NO! No. We EMBRACE them and express gratitude, for they have with great prejudice brought to the center stage of our consciousness the consequences of political complacency and united us around the single cause of saving our country. We will NOT reject them. Rather we rise in celebration of our love for America, our collective voice raised… unified… ringing out like the perfect-pitch of a fine bell to stay the beasts in Washington and demand back those rights & liberties our grandparents… our parents… our sons & our daughters have fought & died to preserve & protect. So the question becomes… the REAL question becomes this: Who among you are SERIOUS about resurrecting our paradigm & shining proudly the brilliant light seen the world over that is the American way of life?
I ask this because the seeds of despotism have been long planted and tended, and those that would benefit from this pillaging of liberty are now salivating like Pavlov’s dogs watching their dreams come to fruition. And to counter that, we patriots dutifully attend our tea-parties, write our congressmen and call the congressional switchboard. But we must now do more… much, much more, for I fear our great republic now teeters precariously on the precipice of existence. And yet… I address you with a heart full of hope.
Allow me please to turn your attention to an excerpt of a lecture given to students at Paris Sorbonne. The lecture was titled “The Man in the Arena.” The year was 1910; the speaker, Theodor Roosevelt:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
America is waking up, and you… here… today… are “that man!” So it is with great humility and gratitude that I address you, survey you, and bear witness to a growing collective that acts with a renewed sense of responsibility to the republic, to the community, and to the family! That being said, this is a call to action! UNLEASH YOUR POWER!!!
FEEL your ancestors demand we cast off this darkness. Shine down that brilliant light, shredding & driving to the most remote corners the shadows of this tyranny. Rise up with power, with strength, and with honor; stand up for the innocent; stand up for the country; stand up to these parasites… all these lesser men that bind themselves together as hordes & endeavor to pull down the strong… STAND UP & tell them they’re not your gods… they’re not your owners… THEY ARE NOT YOUR KINGS! You have an absolute divine right as creatures made in the image of the creator to be and remain FREE! These people have their hands around the throat of the republic, and they are tightening their grip. STAND UP!!! March on their offices. Force them to look into the eyes of the grass-roots anger they themselves have cultivated through action and ASK HARD QUESTIONS! Corner them & demand answers. Demonstrate to them that not only do they work for YOU, but they are to be held accountable. Remind them that they are mere men & women and there are consequences for each & every action; MAKE THIS THEIR JUDGEMENT DAY! STAND UP!!! Stand up and reclaim your birthright… your stake in that great and historic social experiment that is our blessed republic: the United States of America! YOU STAND UP!!!
My name is Citizen Sean, and I say VIVA LA RÉVOLUTION!!! I have never bowed to a living soul, nor shall I ever. On this day, however, allow me to drop to one proverbial knee and pledge to you the service of my pen & my sword; I dedicate to you my hand, my voice, my body.
In closing, we must now return to a time of principal… when we as a people believed in family… and community… and Judeo-Christian values regardless of our individual spiritual belief systems… a time of hope and inspiration and aspiration… dreams and goals and audacity; return to a time when citizens were motivated to succeed by a beautiful & functional balance of opportunity & stigma; return to a time when people made their decisions knowing they were responsible for their choices. That’s a time when there was a much more narrowly defined mono-cultural society… not Anglo-American… not African-American… not native-American or Asian-American… just American. Let’s return to a day when the community worked to inspire & lead one out of poverty, not just pity & provide them handouts. We are Americans. We don’t give fish... we teach to fish. As Americans, we don’t strive to bring the successful down… we endeavor to lift the unfortunate up.
I Thank you, and may God bless you!
