The Communication Problem

What We Have Here Is a Failure to communicate:
Remember that quote from the movie Cool Hand Luke years ago? Failure to communicate can be a bad thing, especially in the running of our government and that is on any level. There is most certainly a communication problem that exists between the American people and their elected officials. Why is this? The answer to that question is very simple. These elected officials have their own agenda and they could care less what the majority of American people say. That is a plain and very easy to understand statement. If you have a problem with that last statement of mine then let me give you some facts to back the statement up.

Fifty four percent of all Americans in a recent poll said that the congress is doing a bad job; sixty seven percent of the American people say they could do a better job than congress. Congress and Obama want to nationalize the banks, seventy five percent of the American people oppose that idea. Will Obama and congress listen? Sixty two percent of the American people want the stimulus package that congress is working on to contain tax cuts. Will Obama and congress listen? The answer to the repeated question is; no they will not listen! They have their own agenda and can care less what the majority of the American people want. So what am I saying?

I'm saying this: if we as do not communicate with these people and tell them what we want, in four years our country, as we know it, could be in ruins. The way things are going now our liberties will be gone. The governments will control the banks, the stock market, the health care system, the corporations, and every part of our life. Then it will be easy for Mr. Obama to spread the wealth around. As this writer sees it we are on a road that will lead to the taking away of, almost, all our liberties. A little here and a little there and they will all be gone. Obama and the congress have four years to take them away and it looks like they already have a good start.

Please forgive me if I'm sounding like one of those people who cling to their guns and Bibles, because I am one of those people who cherishes our freedom. I am one of those people that cling to guns. It is my right as an American citizen to bear arms: To protect my family, myself, and if need be to protect this great country of ours. I am one of those people who cling to and read the Bible and if Mr. Obama and the congress would cling to their Bibles maybe they would see how to govern this nation of ours. It is all there in black and white, stained in red by the blood of the one who died to set us free. It was good enough for our founding fathers and it is good enough for me.
