Although the Election is Passed, Many Dangers are Still Threatening our Nation. We have Unacceptable Annual Budget Deficits, Ever-Growing National Indebtedness, a Congress that has Persistently Proven Incapable of Passing a Budget and Making the Difficult, Yet Necessary Compromises to Govern our Country.
We have seen China Emerge as a Serious Competitor in International Commerce and Finance, and we Watch Nervously as Europe struggles to Avoid Collapse and Grow their Economy.
On January 1, 2013, Draconian Cuts in Spending, and Harmful Tax Increases Kick in Unless Legislators act Responsibly, as the Holidays approach, leaving Few Working Days for Congress to Avoid this Calamity.
Yet...ACT they Must, or we Face the Real Probability of Sinking into Yet Another Disaster, and the Inevitable Recession which would Follow. From where I Stand, that would be a Disgraceful and Wholly Unnecessary Outcome of 4 Years of Gridlock. We can Only ...Hope that Patriotism Compels the Transformation of the Polarized Atmosphere in Washington. The House and the Senate MUST come together for the American People.
The Time for "Standing for Absolute Principles"...has PASSED. SAVING the American Economy from Further, Unnecessary Turmoil, and the American Citizen from - Yet More Pain and Loss...HAS to Come - Ahead of Loyalty to Anyone's Ideology.
For...OUR Part, as Citizens: We - MUST Petition our Congressional Representatives and the White House, LOUDLY, in Phone Calls, E-Mails, and IF NECESSARY....through Physical Peaceful Assembly in Washington, to - ACT, and Responsibly, to Avoid this Pending Disaster.
As a Nation, Collectively, AND as Individuals, we Have Suffered TOO Much from the Effects of our Recent Catastrophe to Sit Idly By and Watch... Congressional Ineptitude...send us All Reeling into yet Another Downward Spiral.
It is...OUR Country, After All, America. If we DEMAND Responsibility from our Elected Officials... Chances are Very Good that we will SEE Them Act in a Patriotic Manner. If we Merely...SIT back and Hope for the BEST, we almost Certainly will Find ourselves falling into another Downward Spiral, which COULD have Been Avoided, if ONLY, WE... the People, had DEMANDED that Our Officials Meet Our Demand to - ACT to Avert the Crisis.
I Truly am - NOT Overstating the Seriousness of this Situation, Folks. The Wolf...is Howling Outside our Door.
ONLY...a UNITED Nation, Resolute in Demanding Intelligent, Responsible ACTION from our Elected Officials, will Enable Us to Enter the New Year with REAL Optimism for our Economic Future.
If...we Do NOTHING, but Enjoy the Holidays, Football, and HOPE things work Out Satisfactorily ..... They WON'T, I Promise You !
GET...Involved. And DEMAND that our Leaders....LEAD Us away from Disaster !!!
