Political Dialogue!

I want to take this opportunity to talk about the larger issue that faces us all in this election. We are in a cultural war for the soul of our country. 229 years ago Elizabeth Powel asked Benjamin Franklin, as he was leaving the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, what form of government the Founders had given the citizens? Franklin famously replied "A republic Madam, if you can keep it."

Franklin's words are a warning to each generation of Americans. Democracy is both a blessing and curse. A blessing because it provides liberty and freedom for its citizens. A curse because at the same time it contains the seeds of its own destruction. Liberty and freedom are not things guaranteed by any document or promise. They must be earned by each generation, which must jealously protect them from threats, not only from outside, but from within the nation as well. The seeds of the destruction are complacent, uninformed and disengaged citizens. For far too long many of us, myself included, have failed to be vigilant in the defense and protection of our Constitutional freedoms and liberties. The result, leadership at every level of government - federal, state & local no longer treat us as citizens, but subjects to be dictated to.
