My Letter to Congress 12/7/2009

We The People as a whole are responsible for the government we get and as individual citizens we are also responsible for holding our representatives accountable for the offices we trust them to regardless of party affiliation. When emails, phone calls, letters, laws and our constitution have little effect of limiting our government from infringing upon our freedoms, future generations will look back and understand that our leaders and uninformed citizens choosing dependency over the freedom to fail in the end failed us all. I would rather fail as a free man than to fail as a slave to the state.

Freedom can never be obsolete and the fight for freedom has no beginning or end.

The constitution was designed to limit government and protect our God given rights, not provide us with things. I am truly blessed to have been born free in a country where so many people before me and to this day have sacrificed so much to protect our way of life. Our way of life and our constitution are more important than any of the buildings and monuments in our nations capital. When our family, friends and neighbors serve our country, here, at home and around the world, they are not defending their government, they are defending our way of life, our liberty and our constitution. Our constitution that was established to limit government’s ability to infringe upon our God given life and liberty should be protected at all costs and not pushed to the side as if it were obsolete.

Just as past generations have defended this great country and our constitution, so must we for future generations.

Some day our Grandchildren may ask us what happened to our freedom, what did you do?

We love our country and only good can come from good people standing up to preserve it in the only way they know how.

House of Representatives Oath of Office:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
