Looking at the news is rather depressing nowadays. It seems with every new day that dawns, the Obama Administration has come up with a scheme to further weaken America and her good standing in the world. Theirs is not a new agenda though. Progressive Democrats wasted no time in infiltrating state legislative bodies to further their notion of transforming America into a progressive nation, one that looks vastly different from the America our Founder’s envisioned. Republicans are guilty of being progressive, too. Just look at Theodore Roosevelt…a perfect example of a Progressive Republican.

These endless shenanigans are ruining our great nation and quite frankly, I’m fed up with it. We need to get these people out of office. We do have a bigger problem though…Americans are fed up enough.

Progressives have done their job well by making Americans dependent on the Federal Government. Little by little, our freedoms have been quietly and discreetly taken away. This isn’t something that has happened overnight. If it happened all at once, Americans would have known immediately what was occurring. We’ve allowed ourselves to be as the famed example of the frog in the pot of water. If you put a frog in a boiling pot of water, he knows to immediately jump out or he’ll die. However, if you put a frog in a pot of cool water, and then slowly heat the water, he won’t know what’s happening. We’ve reached the boiling point and it’s killing us.

Can anything be done or are we too far gone? Americans have believed the lie that only Federal elections matter. Local and state elections are the most important though; state and local offices are the ones we need to concern ourselves with during the election cycles. Why do we Americans complain about the changes that need to be made at the top, yet ignore the elections at the bottom? Our Framer’s designed our nation to be a bottom-up system, not a top-down system. As I stated before, the Progressives knew they wouldn’t be able to infiltrate the Federal government by seeking the top spots. They knew that infiltrating the local and state offices would slowly, yet surely, changes laws and the fundamental core of our government to enable them to move into said top spots.

I’ve been lectured many times over for stating that electing a Republican president in 2016 would not save the nation. I still hold firm to my belief. Yes, having a Republican would be better than the alternative, yet, he alone cannot save the country. Let’s say we do elect a Republican president in 2016, all the while ignoring the elections in 2014 and in 2015 at the state and local levels. How much influence can a Republican have if all of the state legislative bodies, local bodies and even Congressional and Senate bodies are full of Progressives? There’s not a lot that the leader of the Executive Branch can do in that situation. And yes, we’ve also forgotten that the President is the leader of the Executive Branch; his role was not designed to be doing the will of the people nor being the leader of the entire government.

Too long we have ignored the local elections and we are paying the piper for it as a result. Don’t let the opportunity to get involved and vote in local & state elections pass you by. YOU could be the one to help change the ill fate of America.

I encourage my fellow freedom-loving patriots to educate themselves on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Make a study of the Federalist Papers. If we educate ourselves on the proper role and function of government, we will know how to spot a counterfeit.
