A Time of Transition

In just a few short weeks the House of Representatives will undergo the largest transition of power it has ever known. The ruling Democrat party lost 63 seats to the Republican party in what is said to be the largest loss in the history of our Government. During this lame duck session of Congress there are politicians trying feverishly to capitalize on their last few days in control to push through a number of dangerous bills, such as Harry Reid, (D) Nevada, is doing with Senate Resolution 3991 (S 3991) which would force public service workers such as police and firefighters under Union control. He is doing eveyrthing in his power to bypass normal senate procedure to avoid having a public vote. He has been defeated this week, but is still trying to do all that he can to repat his Union-affiliated supporters for getting him re-elected in Nevada for another two years.

When I think about the corruption and dishonesty associated with politicians I cannot ignore the fact that these trends date back as far as society. While some public figures are content to helping their fellow man, others are out for the power and the glory associated with being a leader, while none truely are. The President and the legislators in Washington D.C are there to do business on behalf on the United States with foreign powers while keeping our borders protected and our global economy safe. What they have decidded to do since the time of Woodrow Wilson and others of his ideology is to transform our peaceful and prosperous republic into a socialist paradise. The only problem with socialism is that the ultimate benefit is for the people in power, not the everyday citizen. I urge you all to pay attention to what is being done in your name. When you hear about a new bill being introduced, do not worry so much about how this bill might affect you personally. Rather, think about how it will affect our Country as a whole. If there are personal sacrifices necessary to keep our country safe and prosperous, do not be afraid to make them. The more you do for your country the more your country can do for you in the long run. Be safe. Be strong. Be Vigilent. When the hippies in this country tell you that the republic deserves to die, remember this timeless latin phrase:

“Non illigitimatus refferendum”

Translated into English it says “Don’t let the bastards get you down”.

Sincerely,

George
