If it is to be, it is up to WE!

You and I are totally responsible for this American landscape. Open your eyes, look out on it and breathe it in…because you and I own every last piece of it. What you see, touch, taste and hear is exactly what you and I created because you and I sat on the sidelines for so many years while the ideologue opportunists took what we surrendered through our apathy and complacency!

It seems that wherever we look in this government we have bureaucrats defending the indefensible. http://dailycaller.com/2011/06/17/daley-can%E2%80%99t-defend-obama%E2%80%99s-%E2%80%98indefensible%E2%80%99-economic-policies/ Everything Reagan so passionately and prophetically warned us about has become the reality they have conditioned us to accept as…the new normal! Who the hell needs a misery index? Like Dylan said, you don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

Top posts in the Obama administration have become musical chairs on the Titanic. From people-killing wars in Afghanistan and Libya, to the job-killing wars in Washington and South Carolina it is all one and the same…OPERATION CLUELESS! You and I couldn’t last a minute with job performance so abysmal and yet somehow they keep expanding the size and scope of their role in our lives!! While all eyes were on the Weiner, who was watching Obama sign Executive Order #13575? The UN was!

And can somebody please tell me who in the Republican field of presidential candidates looks any different from any of the other ruling class hucksters who have transformed Washington into one big swamp of moral decay? Which is worse…Al Gore’s endorsement of Mitt Romney, or the Bilderberg seal of approval for Rick Perry? http://www.infowars.com/bilderberg-approved-perry-set-to-become-presidential-frontrunner/ John Huntsman does not wish to be called a Conservative, and yet he doesn’t hesitate to drape himself in the Reagan Aura! Political Blasphemy, pure and simple!

Yeah, yeah, yeah…one week from this coming Monday we will all gather in hometowns across the country to celebrate the 4th of July. Your kids and my kids will look to the “rocket’s red glare” with the same sense of wonderment that you and I and our parents’ parents did 100 years ago! But for the very first time, you and I feel something slipping away…something none of them ever imagined. Who among them would have imagined any public school banning our national anthem? http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2011/06/08/137031395/goshen-college-bans-national-anthem-at-sporting-events

 On a final “slipping away” note, there were two very public apologies rendered to us this past week and they were both as hollow as my Irish leg! The New York Congressman and NBC Executive http://www.wlwt.com/r/28296360/detail.html …one for immoral twitting and the other for moral omitting! The missing piece in both stories is the solution to the puzzle they do NOT want us to solve. What they haven’t figured out yet? It was never up to them!

    What more can ‘we’ do? The awakened sleeping giant has made great strides, first in delaying the passage of the health care bill, later to take back the House in our most recent elections. We’re definitely at a crossroads, but I’m at a loss as to what our next move should be. We made our presence and numbers known via large rallies. We’ve become more informed, we regularly contact our elected officials, we vote…but I feel like we’re now spinning our wheels. We have to do more, but what?

      I usually try to meditate when I find myself in the place you describe Wendy…to just sit quietly and listen…We are never spinning our wheels if we are moving with intention…and there is always something we can do within our circle of power to create the spark…if we don’t see it, pray for it…meditate on it and it will come. But there is also the danger in times like these to find ourselves being pushed and pulled away from our power…so we rebalance, and come back to center.
