Democracy - We Have Lost Our Way

The preamble to the US Constitution reads,  We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure the domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. 

The Constitution was primarily written by James Madison, who would go on to become our fourth President; but his ideas reflected the common thoughts of our Founding Fathers.   The Constitution was supposed to provide for limited government as its purpose was actually to reserve to the states and the people our freedoms.  Some where along the way, during the last 100 years, once politicians of both parties figured out that they could retain power and grow personally rich by bringing home the bacon to buy votes, we lost our way. 

Our Founding Fathers could never have imagined the Socialist creep in the last 100 years that has led to the unlimited growth and power of the federal government and intrusion into every aspect of personal life.   Socialist President Obama's PEEP's, the 50% of Americans that pay no income taxes at all, those on the dole, public employee union members, illegal aliens and favored industries that contribute to Socialist campaigns, in other words, those feeding at the trough, are happy to give up their freedoms in exchange for government life support.   Whose bread they eat, whose song they sing.   And, in a vicious circle of dependence, those feeding at the trough vote to elect Socialists in order to keep the goodies coming to them.   And, Socialists keep the goodies going to them to stay in power.   Is it down right sick and it is destroying our country in the name of "social justice".  

The top 10% of income earners in American pay 70% of the income taxes in the United States, yet President Obama and his Socialists pals in Congress claim that we don't pay our "fair share".   Instead, they should be saying thank you, thank you for allowing the federal government to confiscate the fruits of our labor.  In the last 100 years, we have  created an entitlement society, instead of an opportunity society that recognizes and rewards hard work and success.  This problem exists not only in the United States; but all Western democracies predicated on Socialist ideology.   The end result is that all of our countries are facing bankruptcy that actually threatens our democracy.   We just can't let that happen.  

WE THE PEOPLE must clearly amend the US Constitution to include a Balanced Budget Amendment, Term Limits for Members of Congress to deal with the corruption we see, Limits on the Power To Tax and Spend without additional state checks and balances and the definition of American citizenship so that children born in the US must have at least one US parent to be an American.   We need these Amendments to our Constitution to get our country back on track.   Other western democracies also need these changes to their governing documents to prevent the bankruptcy of their nations.  

We are seeing riots in the street in Europe because Socialism has failed.  We will see civil strife in the United States and perhaps even the break up of our nation if we don't act to secure our country.   Don't think it can't happen in America the same way it happened in the old Soviet Union.  WE THE PEOPLE must take back our country in 2012 and 2014.   We must finish the work done by our Founding Fathers.  We can do it.  We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   We have lost our way; but the road ahead to clear.   We must sweep President Obama and his Socialist pals in Congress out of office in 2012 and 2014 to save our country.  It will not happen any other way.
