It’s time for voters to stage a revolt
At Thanksgiving 2009, we are reminded that since last year, we have been richly blessed by our Lord and Savior. Our health has deteriorated somewhat, but God is still on the throne and still in charge. He has once again provided our necessities of life, food, clothing and shelter from the storms. He has allowed us to go to church and has given us a desire to go, without missing a service. Our church family has changed a little, and church leadership has improved and the family is starting to grow again. We are thankful for all these blessings.
Now our country is another thing. It has slipped deeper and deeper into a hole. Its leadership has almost completely perished. It seems as if everyone in government is there for one reason only, and that is self-improvement. The people they are supposed to represent have been for the most part forgotten. Their desires and needs have fallen on deaf ears. It’s now a government with only one goal, and that is to improve their parties while the people are ignored.
I’m still glad to be an American, but our freedoms are slipping away. To our federal leaders, God is a joke, but folks, the joke will be on them. God is still able to turn this country around and lift it out of this miry pit.
Washington has stuffed this great nation down a rat hole and daily packs it farther down with a ramrod. When are they going to act like sensible people? We can legally revolt against them all in the next election. Please do. Let’s all go independent and vote for whomever you want to. Then you’re being smart. I’m over 80 years old, have never missed voting and have never voted a straight ticket. Vote for the person of your choice, not a party.
