Pundit & Pundette: Bring on the rancor
Anybody that says we should all get along, is someone who has little or no moral ethics. It's one thing for kids on the playground to get along and it's quite another if getting along brings you Roe vs Wade. For too long a lot of people have tried hard to get along with the extremists on the left. Where has it gotten us? It's gotten us to a place where we are the country with the most abortions every year, to a place where it is becoming illegal to practice our Christian faith, where prayer in school is not allowed, where you are not allowed to hand out religious leaflets on the street but allowances are made in some courts for muslim men who commit rape on their wives.
We as Christians did not stand up when one woman protested prayer in school and we lost the opportunity to point out that the Constitution actually says "Congress shall make no laws respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; That's the first amendment for anyone that want's to look it up.
The second part of that amendments says: or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. That includes handing out religious leaflets on the street. Go back and read your history, people. That is one of the things that Benjamin Franklin was known for, his political tracks hit the leaders of the country over everything that he thought was wrong at the time. Without that we may have not had the country that we now are trashing and running into the ground.
We are at a turning point in this country. We can make the choice to return to the fundamental values that made this country the strongest in the world and the most desired place to be, or we can keep on getting along while people like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reed and the new Mr. Mao, President Barack H. Obama, run this country into the ground for some agenda that we don't agree with..
Personally I want to hold our new members of Congress to the promises they made. I want to investigate all the corruption that is going on in this administration, and most of all I want to open up every piece of legislation that has passed in the last two years and make sure that every little piece of it is reread and that every person in this country knows what was put in place without their knowledge and consent. I want the Constitution applied to any new bills that are before the Congress and I want our money spent wisely.
If our new Congress isn't any better than the old Congress then I will cast my vote to get rid of them the same way that the old Congress was gotten rid of. It's too bad that we didn't accomplish that with the Senate but we will have another opportunity in 2012, along with the Presidency.
So if this next few years involves a lot of arguments and disagreements, I personally will be cheering it on!! I am not willing to get along for the sake of getting along. It's much better to keep your moral ethics instead of losing your way!!!!
