What is it we have to do to communicate with our elected officials the message we are trying to send? The spin out there is unbelievable. The arrogance is even more unbelievable.
What I heard from the president was that he did not do a good enough job explaining what we should think. I personally spent a lot of time researching the situation and I do not appreciate anyone, president or not, telling me what to think. I would prefer that he tell me what the heck he was thinking.
People who are desperate enough to dedicate their time and money to send a message should at least be listened to and not ignored. It is the policies that we object to, it is not an understanding problem. Fortunately, we understand very well where the present policies are leading.
Government is spending to much, borrowing to much, confiscating to much power and interfering in our personal lives with powers that far exceed those granted them under the federal and state constitutions. The policies they have put forward have failed. Look to history and look to the present. Our elected officials put forth policies and deny culpability, then blame someone else. If that is not bad enough, they present us with more of the same.
Don't give up. Keep the pressure on. Keep involved. The president used the term fight more then 20 times in his last speech. We have to use it in every sentence we speak to counter the arguments. Join us in Lansing on February 3, for the State of the Citizens on the steps of the Capitol 6:30 - 8:30 pm.
