It's time for a revolution
By Madeline Crabb

America, wake up! Can't you hear the trumpet sounding reveille? It's time for a revolution!

In our representative republic, we are to be self-governing, which is done by we the people electing legislators who represent our views and beliefs in Congress. But over the past 50 years, representing American citizens has become less and less of a priority. Increasingly, legislators do and say whatever is necessary to get into office, and then they do and say whatever is necessary to stay in office. Indeed we are electing representatives-those representing their own desires for power and prestige. Moreover, many of these people willingly and knowingly undermine the will of the people and the Constitution. And I'm downright angry about this. Why aren't you?

For instance, World Net Daily reported an incident that happened last Thursday night when the House of Representatives was voting on an agriculture bill. Attached to the bill was one of probably many other bills that had nothing to do with agriculture. (This is how pork gets passed. The President does not have line item veto power, so legislators load bills with all kinds of extra goodies for their districts, or bills that wouldn't stand a chance of passing if they stood alone.) The bill causing a stir that night was one that granted food stamps to illegal aliens. Supposedly, Republicans had the votes to have that particular item deleted from the agriculture bill, but the Democrats did some fancy procedural footwork that caused the gavel to fall before all the votes were tallied, which means voting was ended. The Democrats claim this was just an accident, but there was no vote recorded on the congressional website. Hmmm.

Needless to say, there is going to be an investigation, but it's probably too late to change things now. What concerns me is that a representative of we the people suggested giving food stamps to illegal aliens in the first place. Then it is upsetting that almost half of the representatives voted to allow the bill to stay. In other words, about half of our elected congressmen want to give food stamps to illegal aliens, despite what their constituents have to say. Maybe they thought we would never find out.

Our federal government is continually trying to ram new and outrageous things down the proverbial throats of the American people. They are constantly trying to appease the rest of the world by leading us away from national sovereignty and into the global community-from liberty and freedom to interdependence. They consistently allow illegal aliens from all nations, but particularly huge amounts from Mexico, to cross our borders-then give them even more rights and privileges than those given to American citizens, at the expense of the American taxpayers. (Worse yet, only two thirds of Americans are footing the bill because about one third pays no taxes at all.) Some representative government, huh?

As talk show host Michael Savage says, "Internal enemies are undermining our religion, schools, courts, military, media, and police." He contends this is happening because Americans "have failed our own democratic system by not being vigilant." I contend we've become fat, lazy, stupid, and even greedy, and have abdicated all responsibility for the preservation of our society to the enemies within-the cultural elite. We have blindly or selfishly voted these enemies into positions that will inevitably determine our fate-one in which we are slaves. It's time to awaken, arise, and act to restore our nation. That means a revolution. We can start in Congress by kicking the bums out. Do we have the will to fight? To anyone willing to hear..
