One the greatest privileges and responsibility we have as American Citizens is the right to vote for elected representatives. I personally did not start voting until about 12 yrs ago, the main reason that I decided to wait until then to start was that I did not follow what was happening in the country.

Since then I have been following the events happening in and out of country as best as I can. One thing I have noticed is the lack of people who actually take the time to vote in our elections. It is a shame that so many people do not use their right to vote. I wish more of our citizens actually voted in our election. The census report I was able to find shows that there is approximatley 281 million people in our country and our last election shows that approximatley 120 million voted.

How do we get more people involved with the election process?

Tea Party's

April 15, 2009 has come and gone. Many people around this country showed their support of the Tea Party's by showing up and expressing their disatisfaction with how our country is be driven into the ditch. We can not stop with just one event, we need to continue to show our elected officails that we will not go away. We have sent them a message with the Tea Party's and they are hoping that we will lose interest with the government like we have with other issues, we can not allow this to happen we needed to apply more pressure to them and get more involved. We also need to show them our resolve that they can not nor will we let them destroy our great nation.

Lets all make them remeber who they actually work for, They Work For The People!

We the People Part 2

It seems that our nation has lost the can do attitude and taken up the give me attitude. I am 37 yrs old andcan see how my generation is different from the previous generation, it is not a good. Most people of my generation want the nice office and the good paying job from the time they leave school, they feel entitled to start at the top, but they do not want to earn it. Fortunately I was raised by caring parents that taught me to set goals and then earn what I wanted.

The way my generation is not all the fault of the kids, some of the fault is with their parents. The parents want all the good things for their kids and set about to getting them for the kids. The parents are also trying to sheild their kids from the hardships that they went thru when they were kids, but they forget that those hardships is what has formed them into the person that they are and set their values.

The side effects of how the kids are being raised are:
1. Kids do not know how to deal with failure
2. Kids expect every thing they ask for to be given to them
3. Kids do not learn how to earn what they want

If we continue to raise our kids this way, we will hamper them for life and inturn hamper our great country. Unfortunately we our not the future of this country, our children are.

Please change the future by raising your children with the values that your parents taught you.

We the People

WE the People need to take a greater interest in what our elected government is doing. We also have to remeber that the government works for us, we do not work for them. I do not like how the government is running our great country into the ground to appease other countries. Why does our government feel the need to continually place obstacles in our way so that other countries can try to keep up or passs us. It is about time that our country get back to theprinciples that has allowed us to get ot where we are and will take us to the next level.
