Election time to "take back America"

August 23, 2010

The time is almost upon us for all Americans who believe in limited government and individual freedoms, as envisioned by our founding fathers, to rise up and take back our country from the edge of socialism caused by the Obama administration and the liberal Democrat-led Congress. Our power is not at the end of a barrel of a gun, to which the colonists had to finally resort, but in the power of our vote at the ballot box in the upcoming elections in 2010 and in 2012.

Mr. Obama and Congress have rammed economy-killing, and freedom-stifling, legislation down the throats of the American people over their objections, as well as uncontrolled continuous spending. Regular Americans attending town hall meetings voicing their concerns had been shouted down, or ridiculed by many of those congressmen holding the meetings. Also, those Americans who have joined or sympathized with the Tea Party movement, in an organized effort to return our nation to a limited government, had been called racists for simply opposing Mr. Obama's socialism, despite the Tea Party movement being based on ideology and open to anyone with like beliefs.

In the upcoming elections, we must vote these leftists out of government and replace them with conservatives to restore sanity to our government.

It will take years to undo the damage these leftist radicals had done to our nation, but unless we do, our republic will become merely a footnote in the annuals of history.
