WOW… just WOW… 912 DC

Posted by courage On September - 12 - 2009

Amazing ! What you ask?  The entire day.  Here are just a couple of observations, heck I need to process the entire day before I start to write about it, I’m sure you understand.

The day started out early, organizers pushed back the start time from 10:00am to 11:00.  Participants were to march to the Capital according to their state residency. We headed out the door, taking the Hotel shuttle to the Metro; the District of Columbia’s light rail line.  Our Metro station, Van Dorn, is second from the end of the line, the platform was filled with Patriots headed to the rally.  Patiently we waited…  our surprise was when the next train pulled in to the station, it was already filled to capacity.  The station platform broke in to a spontaneous applaud, resigning ourselves to wait for the next train and elated with joy with what we hoped would be a large number day.

We The People Are Here ! 912 DC

Posted by courage On September - 12 - 2009

Chater bus Official reports have stated that 450 charter buses have filed for permission to entire the Capital area for the 9-12 project.  That’s a lot of buses and a whole lot more people.

Yesterday we wandered around the District of Columbia and everywhere we went were signs of Patriots.  On the Metro traveling in to D.C. we met Patriots from  across this great country who have descended upon D.C., on each path,  at each street corner you either saw visible signs of Patriots or overheard conversations about today’s march and excitement to be part of this historic event.  We have been told that every charter bus in the state of Ohio has been booked and is here.  Can you imagine the  sacrifice, passion and love of country each individual who will be present today has made to be  here?

There is excitement in the air, anticipation of something bigger than each of us alone, coming together with common purpose.  Yesterday I can not count the number of times I heard some variation of “I have never done anything like this in my entire life.”  YES, the sleeping giant has been awakened.

We The People Are Here !

Embracing the American Voice 912 DC

Posted by courage On September - 11 - 2009

912 ProjectThere are moments in life when circumstances dictate action.  We each determine when the underlying catalysis of a situation compels us toward movement.

For us this trip, participating in the 9-12 project is one such moment.  Our deep-seated concern, centers on a gut level feeling that the Republic is being swiftly and purposefully moved toward a socialist/ fascist model. An unsettled sense of freedom being threatened propelled us from being average, perhaps complacent, citizens to finding a voice determined to be heard.

Congress is Back in Session…

Posted by courage On September - 9 - 2009

and they are glad!  They learned summer recess is not always fun and games; every once in awhile their constituents have something to say.

These are true patriots!  They have taken time away from family, friends and life to question their paid servants (aka Senators and Congresspersons), to voice legitimate concerns regarding health care “reform” which threatens to fundamentally redefine health care in the United States.

Instead of listening with keen ears to these concerns, the political elite dismiss, insult and attempt to bully this grassroots effort.

Sure like anyone with one kernel of sense believes anything Nancy has to say.  As with many of the town hall meeting throughout the summer, our arrogant elected officials have no patience in hearing the voice of the poeple they are elected to represent.

The recess may be over and Congressional Reps may be feeling snug back in their contained bubble of Washington, where they feel supreme in their position.

But a tide is rolling in to the capital.. a wave of patriots will soon fill the streets and once more make their presence known.  We The People are Coming…

We will be joining these concerned citizens.. if you cannot attend, I urge you to write, call, fax or email you Reps sometime this week.  Let these arrogant servants of the people know that while you may not be in Washington physically, your heart and spirit rests with those marching on Saturday.

Starting on Thursday night, we will be updating with thoughts and pictures from our journey to Washington.

My letter to Senator Lugar on Health Care “reform”

Posted by courage On September - 7 - 2009

constitution_quill_penI encourage readers to contact their elected Congressional Representatives and voice your opinion on issues which effect them and this country.  I know some feel overwhelmed when attempting to compose letters.  The thing to remember is.. you are writing to YOUR employee, we pay their salary and they are in Washington to legislate according to the wishes of their constituents, US.  Now if they only hear from say, ProObama/Pelosi/Reid Health Care Activists, they will believe many of their constituents agree with the fascist  takeover of the Health Care industry.

Van Jones may be gone, but…

Posted by courage On September - 7 - 2009

Anyone paying attention knows Van Jones snuck out the back door of the White House on Saturday night; leaving in his wake a resignation letter meant to distract a country which has suddenly began to awaken.  The entire resignation letter can be found here.

An excerpt from the resignation letter..

“ On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me. They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.” (emphasis mine)

Lies and distortions?  What exactly would those be Mr. Green Red Czar? Read the rest of this entry »
