Let us start out with this link: http://library.thinkquest.org/23154/citizenjob.htm
The United States is in turmoil and has been for countless years. The turmoil stems from several key issues those being the breakdown of the family unit, taking our attention away from what the Federal Government does without a peep from citizens and living lives on credit. Sure there are more issues that have led to turmoil, least of which is education.
So what are the solutions to curing what ails America? Engagement …..pure and simple. We can no longer leave matters to others to resolve. If you don’t like what is life has become, you have no one to blame but yourself.
Have you done the following in the last 5 years?
• Vetted candidates and voted for the best representation for local, national and international action?
• Have you contacted your representative in Congress or the Senate?
• Have you learned about the limitless power of those in Washington DC?
• Do you know the key names of people in Washington DC and what their backgrounds are?
• Rather than donating money, have you donated time to physically see how things work or don’t work?
• Have you chosen one or more subjects and researched that subject to learn more?
• Do you turn off the television and have real quality time with family members or friends?
• Have you visited a school to see what is actually being taught and how students and teachers behave in the classroom?
• Are you aware of laws and legislation that is outside the scope of limits on the U.S. Constitution?
• What do you know about international events?
• Do you trust or rely on the news you read or hear? Have you verified all the events?
• Have you joined and participated in an organization that benefits our society?
• Have you visited a church to hear and understand a message?
These are just a few items that should guide you in what is best to keep you informed and active. Here are a few links that should help you get started if you are lacking in direction or focus:
• What is Agenda 21?
• Can you describe what Operation Stillpoint is?
• Can you name just one Presidential Czar and define their background and agenda?
• Take a look at AnyStreet.org to understand grass-roots activities.
• Join a PTA, The 9.12 Project, get on the email list for JudicialWatch.org
You have a duty as a citizen to devote some real time to the world around you, to get involved, get engaged.
