Putting Politics Aside
It’s virtually impossible in today’s politically charged environment to get politicians out of the politics of making public policy. It’s like getting lawyers out of the legal system, or businessmen out of business.
Since when do we need anyone telling us what to think say or do? More importantly what NOT to think say or do? An important theme running through the Constitution of the United States is that we are all created equal by our Creator God, referred to by our Founding Fathers as The Higher Power.
The United States of America is commonly referred to as America, when in fact it is only one country on the American Continent of North, Central and South America. In that respect not all citizens of the Americas are “American” citizens. Every person born is a citizen somewhere and that should be a source of pride and the heritage of that person and their family tree.
There are a lot of factors that over the years have brought us to this point in the history of our nation where a minority of individuals feel it is their “god given right” to make decisions that affect the majority of people here in the U.S.A. and around the globe.
I’ve been to many other countries and have experienced firsthand what it means to have certain liberties taken away, or to have the freedom of speech inhibited or restrained. I’ve been to places where it is against the law to speak out loud against the reigning leader, his family or the ruling government. It’s not pleasant to think that even thoughts can lead to arrest or imprisonment.
I’ve been to places so steeped in tradition that change is not even contemplated, but deemed impossible. I’ve been to places where governments are often changed by force or revolution and the threats of fear and intimidation, even death is routinely carried out. What is more frightening is a place where common sense is thrown aside and the government IS the larger threat and mob rule is the norm.
The purpose of government is first and foremost the safety and security of its people. Life is good when people are safe and trust the government. Life is not good when government betrays its people and threatens freedom and removes liberty.
In the United States ours is a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
The Congress is called the Legislative Branch of government and has the responsibility to create law. It is made up of members of the Senate and of the House of Representatives. There is nothing written in the Constitution that determines any authorized political party in Congress. There are majority and minority leadership roles in both the Senate and the House, yet their express purpose as members of Congress is the responsibility TO the people and to the states as they assemble together to create law. What they do not know, have not learned or often forget is the fact they are NOT the leaders of our nation. Congress has become a huge voting block along political party lines and as such has become a less efficient government entity and nothing more than a “unionized shop” with threats, fear and intimidation as their primary “enforcement” tools to ensure compliance. Members of Congress are PUBLIC SERVANTS who work for and are accountable to the people. They can and will be held accountable at the polling booth on Election Day.
We the people choose a single leader who is the head of our government and charged to do is the will of the people of this nation. The office of the President of the United States is called the Executive Branch of our government and is responsible for enforcement of the rule of law as outlined in the Constitution.
The President is not the leader of the free world, nor the leader of a global conglomeration of nations. The President is the Leader of the United States of America. He speaks with the authority given in the Constitution and by the people. He represents the United States on the world stage and there is no other spokesman for this nation, unless so delegated by the President.
American citizens should stop voting by political party but every President should be judged by the results of his efforts for the national security of our nation, the administration of our government agencies and be assured that he can also be replaced at the ballot box on Election Day. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
