it’s time for “Talking Points with the Founding Fathers”…
I trust your Thanksgiving was a wonderful time of sharing with family and friends. And a time to reflect on where our country is headed. The real work begins now. Not in January when the new Congress is sworn in. But now…
That being said, here is the Congressman’s oath that was adopted in 1884:
“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. ”
Read it, remember it, and hold every single one of them, along with the President, and our state representatives to the oaths they take.
Note to the new Lee Co. Commissioners, Mike Stone, Burr, Renee Elmers…your job is not going to be easy. There will be extremely tough decisions that even I know I will not agree with. However, had previous elected officials stood by the oath above, we would not be in the mess we are.
This patriot and others will be watching. And this forum will be used to hold you accountable. Now is not the time to wimp out. Now is the time to show courage, faith, strength and tenacity. Now is the time to steer America back on course.
Now dear fellow patriots…you are not without accountability either. Make your face be known. Get in your car and ride to Raleigh and DC. Never let them forget our faces and why they are there.
But most importantly, get on your knees daily and pray for our leaders. Pray for our President. Pray for our country. Because without the Almighty one being invited, our country is doomed to fail. It will be extremely hard to keep the republic if we don’t.
