The Passing of the Gavel

Today Mr. Speaker you officially take the gavel away from Nancy Pelosi; who recklessly used it to to attempt to undermine and obscure the will of the people. I appreciate that as you undertake one of the most powerful jobs in the nation that you want to make it less about yourself and the power you may hold but more about the people in which you actually represent. That would be us, We the People… you say that you will be offering the minority party a chance to be heard, Mr. Speaker..we have heard from them and they have supported every progressive measure to lead us into a more socialist type government.
Naftali Bendavid and Patrick O’Connor report in the Wall Street Journal that one of your first votes will be:

Lawmakers will be required to vote on whether or not to raise the federal debt ceiling, a move sought by tea-party representatives. Current rules let the House automatically raise the limit when they pass a budget.

We can’t afford to have the federal debt raised any higher if you want us to get our fiscal responsibilities in order. Among the changes of rules that you wish to implement is:

All legislation must be posted online 72 hours before going to the House floor to prevent party leaders from changing bills the night before House votes, as has been the practice over the years.

We have heard this before if you remember when Obama was preaching from his deluded pulpit and hailed “transparency” was coming to DC. We the people, are demanding that we have the time to read and to voice our concerns regarding impending bills and we respectfully but firmly request that the bills be limited to the length; no longer is it necessary to have thousands of pages of political rhetoric to get a bill passed.
So Mr. Speaker has you hold the gavel in your hands remember it is the people of America that is looking to you for leadership; one who won’t buckle to those who claim to be with you in name only. The American people know who the RINO’s [republicans in name only] are and we will be most likely watching you more closely, placing you under our microscopic eye to see that you hold true to your promise to restore honor to America and to repeal the usurpation of this administration.

The Pledge: Honoring Our Constitution

We are at a crossroads in our nation today as we embark on possibly one of the most heated and dynamic mid-term elections of our lifetime. Recently the GOP released their Pledge for America in an attempt to enlighten every day Americans to the threat that now exist in DC given the Socialist agenda that is being forced down our throats at every chance. Redistribution is not the key to our social problems.

America is an idea – an idea that free people can govern themselves, that government’s powers are derived from the consent of the governed, that each of us is endowed by their Creator with the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. America is the belief that any man or woman can – given economic, political, and religious liberty – advance themselves, their families, and the common good.

Obama, while desperately declining in recent polls has once again attempted to silence the “minority”. His common theme throughout his presidency has been to blame the previous administration for everything under the sun without the ability to be accountable for his own agendas. This is evident as he stated, “Make no mistake: The Republicans running for Congress, they want the next two years to look like the eight years before I took office“.  Apparently not only does he not read the bills that come before him but he is blinded by the fact that his base is starting to turn on him as thirty-one Democrats are supporting to continue the Bush Tax cuts that are soon to expire. He is grasping at straws as he calls, for “We need your energy and enthusiasm — the energy and enthusiasm of everybody in this room and everybody you can reach.
It is no longer going to be about Republican or Democrat and their specific agenda. This administration has done one thing successfully and that they have awakened the “sleeping giant” and no longer are we going to sit by and let those we send to Washington to represent us do so blindly. The will of the American people to have their voice be heard is evident by the ever growing support of the Tea Party Movement that has many on both sides of the aisle nervous.

Whenever the agenda of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to institute a new governing agenda and set a different course.

Do your homework, research the candidates and their platforms and only vote for those who are willing to be our voice in Washington. No longer can we sign a blank check for them to run amuck and continue to usurp our rights as set forth not only in the Constitution but our Bill of Rights..Vote November 2, 2010..our future and that of our children and grandchildren are depending on us to save the Republic…

We make this pledge bearing true faith and allegiance to the people we represent, and we invite fellow citizens and patriots to join us in forming a new governing agenda for America
