"We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts,
not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution".

-- Abraham Lincoln

1. It seems that today, we the people don't count.
If we did, those perverts would have been long gone.

2. That sounds like a great quote to send to our
Congresscritters.

3. Along with Jefferson's quote:
"The price of liberty is eternal vigilance."

If we the people and those we have elected do not act now to protect our Constitution, we will lose our precious freedom.

4. That ended with the election of Ronald Reagan.
The corporate world has obviously outbid the People.

5. The leaders of our party are letting us down
Every once in a while they get a jolt of courage , but then we all tune into Fox to watch the Hannitys of the world cut them to shreds and call them extremists who hate America. The problem isnt the Hannitys but us. We actually care what those nazis say about us. We are afraid to make them mad so we temper our words by calling blatant liars nice polite things . WTF happened to this party where we worry about what these people think or say. The people are waiting for someone with balls to stand up and tell the truth about what our government is doing to us. Until we get someone like that theyll continue to imprison us , destroying anyone who speaks against there ambitions

6. We can't wait- we have to be the ones who stand up
in great numbers and say no to this.
