SOTU – fail! American public ignorance – fail!

Every now and then I run across a post that I feel is cross-post worthy and this is one of them.  5etester over at Spellchek challenges each of us to wake up and break free from the if we ignore it, it will go away mindset. It’s reality check time and we had better not miss this moment or the great experiment we embarked on in 1787 could come to an end.  Below is a excerpt from the post that in my opinion smacks it out of the park.

The fact is the future is grim. We have the destructive policies of the progressives in place and growing. We have two more years of Obama at a minimum to ensure that our economy can’t recover. The Fed is a cancer that is methodically destroying us from with-in. And to top it all of, we have an ignorant public to enable it all. Sure, there are many of us out there sounding the alarm, but it needs to be stepped up exponentially. It has to start with us. There is no way possible government is capable of doing what it takes on its own.

We all need to do our part.  It’s time for us to accept the undeniable truth that things are not good and that the State of our Union is in rough place.  Our republic needs our help.  It is time to stand up for liberty, for freedom, for property rights, for our constitution, for the free market, for limited government, and for the individual.  The solution to the massive problems we are facing as a republic rest within each of us; but we need to stop denying that it will all get better without pain.  It’s going to be painful; however I have a great deal of faith and confidence in the individual when the individual spirit is unshackled from government regulation and policies.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    Thanks for sharing that link, I am going to check it out right now. You are right, it is time for us to stand up and take our country back. We need to do this now or it may be too late.

      I totally agree Steve. We must act soon.

    The two parties always disagreed and had differing world views, but time was they framed their policies on what they believed the Constitution would allow – not as a living breathing document, but what the words said on paper.

    Sadly that is not true anymore.

      Our elected officials have not followed our constitution for some time now. Our Supreme Court has helped it along with terrible rulings. We the people had better wake up soon and start demanding that our elected officials respect and stay within the parameters of the constitution. When they steamroll over our constitution…they are steamrolling over our freedoms and liberties.

    5etester, an outstanding analysis of our current situation. John, thanks for sharing. There is a huge mass of Americans that are living in a sort of blissful ignorance. They know things are bad but they tell themselves things have been bad before and we’ve always recovered. Also, as 5etester said; they talk the talk, but that is all. We know, however, that NO PAIN, NO GAIN. People, because the MSM hasn’t told them, don’t know how serious the situation truly is. And for that reason they are not scared like we are. Some how we have to get their attention. If not through the MSM, then we need to do it through local media. They have to know that if they aren’t willing to pay price X, their children and grandchildren will have to pay 3X. They have to make a choice.

      The MSM has failed in their duties and responsibilities to the republic on a colossal level Jim. And we have let them get away with it. This is why it is important that we keep spreading the word. Hopefully we are reaching some.

    Thanks Jim and John for the cross-post. I know there are a great many bloggers on the right who are very involved and have gone above and beyond, yet, this challenge is markedly different. Calling out the left for their misguided policies is relative childsplay compared to the task in front of us now. Keep beating the drums!

      You’re very welcome. I thought it was a post that needed cross-posting. The topic is that important. We need to keep on keeping on.

    I saw that over at Spellchek. It is a foreboding post, but one we need to pay attention to.

      Indeed Matt. It is something that needed to be said.

    Great one and troubling. Time is running out.
