For The American Patriots: We Will Overcome..

“First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win. “ Ghandi

The American people have been ignored by their representatives, their senators as we’ve attended marches upon Washington, DC, attended town-hall meetings, jammed phone lines with calls, worn out the fax machines as we voiced our opposition to the health-care reform that was recently passed. But, yet we were ignored…
They have ridiculed us with their lame attempts by calling us “tea bagger, right-winged nuts.” This administration has stopped of nothing short of bribery, with their promises to help those who were persuaded to cast a “yes” vote on this most troubling piece of legislation. Obama stood before the American people and called out those with whom he thinks is throwing stumbling blocks before him, Congressman John Boehner, Senator Mitch McConnell and even Karl Rove….Many of the Attorney Generals have filed suit against this legislation stating it is unconstitutional and goes against the 10th amendment which clearly states……………………………………

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

We will win, we will over come. November is only eight months away. We have the majority in this one,the majority being the ones opposed to this form of tyranny. We can win because it is within our genetic make-up passed on from generations past to fight for the rights of this country. To protect its foundation and preserve the constitution as it was intended. Again I refer to Lincoln’s message…….

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

Many of us heard this song as children back in the sixties, one that remains true today..the message is clear, it is still relevant..for as Ghandi said, “we will win.” We will overcome…

  1. Great post, Erica. We may have lost the health care battle but we have not lost the war! November is coming and we can turn this country back around!

    • T~ I won’t say we’ve lost it just yet, we are fighting tooth and nail to repeal this bill and if not successful, then yes we have November and we can send them a message that may finally awaken the Giant within and they may open their eyes to see the “errors” of their ways. For those who are blind to the fact, then they may enjoy the taste of defeat as they pack their bags and head home in November. Often wonder how after a year of not listening to the people they serve, just how the reception will be once they too are again private citizens!

  2. In movie classic, “The Perfect Storm,” George Clooney’s fishing boat captain character made a series of fatal decisions to go for never before reached deep water fishing grounds while ignoring his own best judgement to return to safe harbor.
    The captain had a duty to his crew to put safety before profit and glory. Once the horror of reality set in that there was no turning back they all knew they were doomed.
    One crew member’s observation haunts me today. Just before drowning in a flooding compartment he turned and said to his mate, “This is really going to be hard on my little boy.”
    I trust some of you will understand the analogy here. Obama and the Marxists have been taking us into the perfect storm of economic crisis for 14 months. Al Sharpton said it all when he observed that the people knew they were voting for socialism when we voted for Obama.
    I think the statement should be corrected to reflect that a marginal 53% of Americans voted for socialism when they voted for Obama.
    Every effort should be made to reverse course in the 2010 and 2012 elections. The winds of political discontent are approaching gale force conditions and building.
    The Ship of State can only take so much damage, which appears to be intentionally inflicted by the Democratic Socialists, before losing it’s watertight integrity.
    We may be seeing the precise series of misjudgements made in The Perfect Storm. The big difference is that I don’t think the deep water fish are there. In other words, there’s no money, honey, to pay for the saddling debt which will be so hard on our children.
    “Progressives” is now the code word for “Communists.” Let’s keep in mind they are currently at the helm and are steering us into certain peril as a nation.
    As I stood before the eternal flame memorial to Gandhi in New Delhi I contemplated his message of passive resistence to the world. I couldn’t help but note the tragic, brutal, violent, and ironic circumstances of not only his death but of Indirha Gandhi’s death, as well.
    Most Indians I asked said that the Gandhis achieved nothing of permanence for India. Their country remains in a caste system, in economic instability, in political turmoil, and now in environmental crisis. They told me that the Gandhian way was a Utopian failure.
    I’m with Thomas Jefferson who suggested that periodic revolution, at the polls or in the streets I think, is necessary to alter the course beset by those who seek to bring Democracy to its Perfect Storm.

    • David, you never cease to amaze me with your intellect, life’s experiences. It is a joy to consider you a friend and a true patriot. Your analogy was point on! Awesome response!

  3. This was a very good read. It gives me a sense of hope to know there people all over this country feeling the same discontent. We have been betrayed by our law makers,and to borrow from Mr. Duncan’s analogy: I hope the winds of change are headed to this nation and it’s people. God bless you, and your good work Erica, and may God bless this nation once more.

    • Thank you so much for commenting. The more people I talk too, the more I find that are very unhappy with the direction our country is headed. For those who don’t understand, can’t see past several issues, one being his race..It is not now or ever has been about his heritage but about the path of destruction he is quickly leading our country down.
