“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6

"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

Just a couple Post-Election Words...

Now that we can see how "We the People" and "consent of the governed" works, lets use this as a renewal of our American outlook and mindset.  This is NOT the END, it is only the beginning.  Know it or not, each and every American has a duty and responsibility, in return for the freedom they have taken for granted over the years. Having freedom doesn't mean that you can simply wake up every day and do whatever you want. For too long, we have benefited from the fruits of American prosperity and liberty, without caring for the tree.  That has a time limit, and our tree of liberty is drying up.  Here is the problem: We do not have the opportunity of discovering and establishing freedom, as our founders did, in another land across the ocean.  America is the last frontier of hope for liberty in this world.  We have lost sight of our founding principles and firm reliance on God, this is what made America great.  Our elected is merely a reflection of who we are!  Any country's citizens can concern themselves with only their own lives.  This lends itself to an overbearing state with no power checks.  However, America is not like every other country, or at least it wasn't.  Nowhere else on the face of this planet, throughout history, has a country been as free as America.  However, there is nothing "magic" about America.  Just as any country she must be governed.  However, The American System of Government means that "We the People" rule, and we do that by remaining engaged and keeping our elected accountable to our founding principles. Only through our sustained and continued engagement into their representation of us, can we preserve American freedom.  We must do this, so that we and our children may preserve the right to life, liberty, and the opportunity to pursue happiness.  We must INSPECT what we EXPECT.  That is the price we must pay for our freedom.  If we don't, we will be at the mercy of flawed men with limitless power!  This is a "life style," change not a diet; it is a marathon, 
not a sprint! WE MUST STAY ENGAGED!

"The price of Liberty, is eternal vigilance."
~ Thomas Jefferson

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil, is
for good men to do nothing." 
~ Edmund Burke

"A nation that forgets its past is doomed to repeat it." 
~ Winston Churchill

"I'm tired of hearing it said that democracy doesn't work.  
Of course it doesn't work. We are supposed to work it!"
~ Alexander Woollcott

"I believe there are more instances of abridgment of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachment by 
those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation."
~ James Madison

"How fortunate for governments, that the people they govern, don't think."
Adolf Hitler
