"Liberty is to precious a thing to be burried in books"

The election is almost upon us.  No matter what the results, we can not give up. Just like in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, we need to realise how important and wonderful this American experiment has been. It is something we all should be willing to fight for and preserve.

Today, we have tools on hand to make it easier to get support and communicate with others. The Mackinac Center put together a video from a conference on new media that is very interesting to watch. It is also available on our web page. Those of us who have been around for a while defending our way of life, can testify that getting things organized now and communicating with like minded individuals is a lot easier with modern technology.

What is the same is our need to affirm the correctness of freedom, liberty, and choice.  As government has gradually become more and more intrusive in our life, we sometimes fail to recognize that we are losing our ability to exercise those inalienable rights, which were endowed by our Creator and not the government.  We need to keep reminding those we elect to represent us, that their job is to represent us and not to make laws for their convenience or personal gain.

People have poured into this country to experience the opportunities this country allows. Slowly we are letting these opportunities slip away.  The recent wake  up call of the Tea Party, I hope, has reversed our decline.  We can not forget what a blessing we have in this country and the need to defend her with everything in our power. Freedom is not free. It requires our constant vigilance. I count on you to help me keep watch.

I just need a little explanation, would anyone care to elaborate on the last comment?
You wanna see a truly realistic movie? How about Inception. 100% realistic scenario - shit like that can only happen in dreams :)
What's a good starting point for launching an interesting blog? I want people to come and read my articles, and I want to see lots of comments.
I was once trying to write jokes, and it didn't turn out too well. I'm not the brightest lightbulb, and I live with my mom.
