Happy Father’s Day to…

…our Founding Fathers!

Until Constitution Day really takes off, this seems like the perfect day to honor those men who fathered our country.

Of course many Americans who should be grateful to our Founding Fathers, including most politicians these days, have in effect thumbed their noses at the very heart of our Founding Father’s pure intentions for our country. We have career politicians passing legislation that gives the federal government more and more control over our lives and over our free market economy. We have our Supreme Court telling terrorists from foreign countries that they have rights to our judicial system. And we have presidents and presidential candidates who look away as millions of illegal aliens in our country pour in through our wide open borders, and they are buying into all the global warming crap that is going to further ruin our economy and give the government more control over us.

We were joking at Patrick’s blog about our Founding Fathers spinning in their graves because of what we have done to this country that they so wisely designed; Patrick imagined hooking up their spinning bodies to generate electricity to a small town. I said a small town? I think we could light up Las Vegas!

We can stop the madness though, but it won’t be easy. We have to elect representatives who know the Constitution, and actually believe in it. We need to do this at ALL levels of government, federal, state and local. This will probably mean don’t automatically re-elect your current Congressmen and women, and it may even mean don’t automatically vote for the party you are registered for. We should hold our representative accountable, and get back to the basics.

We CAN take our country back, for the sake of our children, we must try.

P.S. Happy Father’s Day to all you Dads, too!
