SEPTEMBER 19, 2008


"Here comes the orator, with his flood of words, and his drop of reason." -- Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), Poor Richards Almanac, 1737

(Sometimes I wonder if our Founding Fathers had the ability to see into the future)

Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA?  If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you.  Our nation is a "representative republic."  In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you?  Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature.  That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals.  Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.

Contact your elected officials (enter your zip code in the upper right corner):  http://www.congress.org/congressorg/home/
