Americans this is our call to action! In November 2010 we sent a resounding message to Washington. We told DC that We The People have had enough with the political games that are destroying our country and degrading our Constitution.
Days after a speech on TV by Mr. Obama following the shooting spree by a deranged young man Mr. Obama's ratings jumped 4 points. This event made me reflect on a quote that I saw several weeks prior to this event. The quote was written by Will Rogers.
"The short memories of American voters is what keeps our politicians in office" Will Rogers
This quote has never been more appropriate than it is today. We continue to elect the same people over and over again even when their ratings are the lowest in history. We either have short memories or we are totally complacent.
We forget that the health care law was passed with total disregard for the American people and the Republican party. As most Democrats will agree....they know better than us what we need. We forget our President feels the Constitution is nothing more than a nuisance; a doucment that is just an outdated piece of paper. But he pledged an oath to defend and support the Constitution. An oath he has broken time and time again. We forget our President traveled around the world apologizing for America while making friends with our enemies and turning his back on our friends. We forget our President has failed to protect the citizens of this country by refusing to secure our borders, suing states that try to uphold the immigration laws and signing the START treaty with Russia. We forget our government sends billions of American taxpayer dollars to countries that hate us and who kill their own people. We forget during this administration our government now owns businesses, controls our food and water and our internet. We are losing our freedoms at an alarming rate.
This is why I felt the need to create a flyer for the grass roots community to use as we ramp up our GOTV efforts for the 2012 election. We MUST remind Americans what this President has done to our country and our freedoms so they are not swayed into submission by a flowery speech with no truth or substance.
