If you are a politician, constituent, or lobbyist, working against the Constitution, you should be afraid, very afraid. Your time is almost up.
In 2008 we saw a very charismatic, young, Democratic leader win over the general public with his promises of “Hope and Change”. He said he was a centrist. He said he would reach across the aisle. He understood that we were all sick of the Bush administration, but most of all sick of Washington in general. We all wanted change, in the White House and on the hill. America was at the point that we believed any change would be good change. We all had hope for America (yes I said “had”).
What we didn’t stop to do, and what we as American’s have never really stopped to do, is figure out what the problem was in the first place.
What I can’t understand is why we didn’t take the time as free citizens of the greatest country in the history of the World, to study and understand what Barrack Obama meant by change. It is our right as American’s to vote for our “leaders”, but it is our responsibility as American’s to understand the “leaders” that we are voting for.
Some of us did see through the “Hope and Change” promises, and understood what was to come if we as Americans blindly voted in a “charismatic leader”. Those of us that have been fighting for liberty since before the 2008 campaign are now screaming “Keep the Change!”
As hard as it was for conservative Americans to hear that Barrack Obama was going to be the next President of the United States, it just might have been the best thing for America that Senator John McCain was defeated. Not because Barrack Obama was the better choice, but because Barrack Obama, by the end of his four year term will have shown America his and his party’s true colors.
Almost all Democrats and certainly many Republicans are beginning to sweat over the grassroots demand for liberty. Why are both parties afraid of the Tea Parties of 2009? Because a demand for liberty and call to cease government spending is not coming from a charismatic leader, it is not coming from the leadership of a 2012 campaigner, nor from any particular group or individual. This demand for liberty has come directly from the people organized by no one but themselves!
The general public has started to realize what the promises of “Hope and Change” truly meant and it has inspired this grassroots movement to reclaim America by reclaiming our Constitutional rights that have been stripped away day in and day out for generations.
As more and more people join this second American Revolution, many of us might be able to remove the “had” that we put up in front of Hope.
