Since our founding fathers many great patriots have served our nation with humility and distinction. Their motives pure and sacrifices well noted in the canons of history. They came with a servants heart to fulfill a need during a time of trouble in our nation. They exercised fortitude in the face of great adversity and trouble, never compromising their integrity.
Today there are those that come to D.C. that want to destroy the very fabric and foundation upon which our country was founded. It is an enemy that appears as harmless as a dove but is as wise and venomous as a serpent. They slither through the halls of congress and squeeze the integrity out of those who do not fear their power and strength. Those who decide to cooperate with them soon succumb to their powerful grip. They make their nest in the sewers below K street (home to lobbyist) and lay their eggs of bribes, deceit, and corruption. As they hatch they spread all across the city infesting every institution of government with their powerful grip. Today Washington D.C. is full of men and woman who have been bitten by their bite or have become entangled in their grip of power. Power has replaced principle and pride has replaced piety. No longer is public office a place of service to the people but has become a place full of a self-serving people. They have joined the Washington Cartel which is made up of career politicians from both parties that get into bed with lobbyist and special interest.
Leaders in both parties have learned that controlling the agenda is not only financially rewarding but by involving the media and parliamentary tricks they are able to fool the voters back home. They take votes they know they cannot win to show they tried then blame the very individuals that contribute to their campaigns. Today we have a government where the politicians, the press, the lobbyist, and corporate special interest are all in bed together while the American voter is left with no voice and no representation. Politicians go to Washington DC with the highest integrity and are quickly told if they do not play the game they will get nothing accomplished, no money, no support, and will be treated as an outcast.
A great patriot, Samuel Adams said “If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” That time has come in America and we need experienced patriots to stand up and fight to reclaim D.C. and return it to its rightful owners, the people of this great country.
We must unite as patriots and elect principled conservatives that will destroy the Washington Cartel and promote the cause of liberty, freedom, and limited government. We must put forward candidates that are able to articulate constitutional principles, a foreign policy based on strength and not nation building, and an economic message of growing the economy and shrinking the size and reach of the federal government. Men of principle and integrity who believe in the spirit of our constitution and have demonstrated an ability to stand in the face of great adversity. Senator Ted Cruz and Rand Paul have both proven their ability to stand for the constitution and shrinking the size of government. Just as there were issues that united our founding fathers, there are issues today that unite us against the Washington Cartel.
The founding fathers understood that the cause of liberty did not belong to any one man or family but to all who believe in its principles of freedom. If we are going to defeat the Washington Cartel we must keep the message of liberty the main thing and not the messenger. Both Senator Cruz and Paul have promoted a message that all who love liberty can get behind. Senator Cruz and Senator Paul believe in their core the idea of limited government and both men would work to Reclaim the Constitution and Rescind the overreaching power of the federal government. Just as in the days of our founding fathers, there were strong disagreements over policies but they understood who was the real enemy. Let us not forgot who the enemy is and work together with those who promote the message of Liberty.
