This country was established to escape tyranny. To establish a country that acknowledged our inherent freedoms. In doing so our founding fathers gave us our Constitution. This document has been and is currently under attack by those on the left. An attack on the Constitution is an attack on the American people. You may say,….well aren’t those people also Americans? Well the answer is yes they are and they have the same protection everyone else has in The United States of America. How ever there speech is not any more important or powerful than your or mine. But it seems lately our freedoms are eroding.
We find ourselves being controlled by the minority, in a country where we are supposed to be governed by the majority. We are a Republic, were those we elect by a majority vote to represent us, get their consent from those they govern. Currently we, the silent majority have allowed the minority to take charge of the governing! Currently, on average we are allowing 450 citizens per county telling the other 22,550 American citizens in their county how they will be governed.
In the Constitution our five freedoms are established:
• Freedom of Speech
• Freedom of Religion
• Freedom of the Press
• Freedom to Peacefully Assemble
• Freedom to Petition
Nowhere in the Constitution is there the freedom not to be offended! When someone says I am offended by the Pledge of Allegiance, I am offended by the word Christmas, I am offended by the word God, I am offended because you called me a name, I’m offended, I’m offended, I’m offended!
I’m offended by those that are offended! Yet we the majority sit on our hands and say it no big deal, it really doesn’t effect me,…..well,….it does!
So why do most of those who say; well maybe if I have the word Christmas in my window or if I let my staff say “Merry Christmas” in stead of “Happy Holliday’s” someone may not shop in my store and I will lose a customer or if it is a politician, they do not want to lose any votes. They do so, knowing that we, the silent majority will continue to do what we do because we just don’t get involved to the point that it will make any difference. Well if ever there was a time to get involved it is now! So how do we put a stop to those who pander to the minority that are offended? You need to let them know you are offended! When you walk into a store and are greeted with Happy Holiday’s in stead of Merry Christmas, as for the store manager and tell them you are offended and if they don’t immediately change their policy you will shop elsewhere. When your school does not allow the pledge of allegiance, call the school board and tell them you are offended and unless the change their policy immediately you will vote them out of office. If you have a left leaning newspaper, stop buying it and call those who purchase ads in that publication and tell them you will no longer be purchasing their products as long as the sponsor that publication. If you are offended by the content of a television show, call the sponsors and tell them you are offended and you will no longer be purchasing their products while they sponsor that type of content. That goes for global warming and other issues as well, we see products and policy that continue to support a debunked theory yet they continue to pander to those who want it to be true, don’t let them get away with it.
You can make a difference, you do it with you wallet, your vote and your VIOCE, let it be heard.
