I have been not blogging as much lately, because I have been concentrating my energy elsewhere for the Cause, our Republic and Liberty. I have begun a concerted effort to do more for our Cause and blogging is not enough.
I have heard so many asking what can WE do. I will be covering what I am doing along with other Conservative principles for now on.
The first thing I am doing is writing ALL my representatives, local, state, and federal. I found this site: http://www.congress.org/congressorg/home/ where I can easily find and contact all my representatives at all levels. Check it out!
It is real easy to write one letter about an issue and send it to everyone it pertains to quickly. All I do is change certain segments of the letter to fit who I am addressing to.
This site also has listed the pending legislation. You can track how certain representatives vote. Finally, you track certain issues and how others are discussing them. This is a great tool to communicate with others and your representatives.
They do read your letters and track them. Recently, I heard a county council was going to bar their county employees from carrying firearms and disallowing them to have them in their cars before and after work. The county had some lame excuses why. The county residents rose up and called, faxed, and email their council members. The ordinance was removed from consideration and was never voted on. This occurred in one day!
We, the People, hold the power. We just need to employ it. We have the natural right to. We have a responsibility to employ this power.
Remember outside Independence Hall when the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended, Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it."
Well…it is out time to keep it.
