The Angry Constituent
I know this sounds like a corner for political malcontent speech but then, why not? I believe that Americans have failed to be good but firm bosses of our government and do not follow-up on issues or any actions taken by our elected officials.
So, with that said, I started sending letters to my senators and congressmen to illustrate my utter disgust in everthing that is going on in Washington. While I’m deployed it’s all I can do. When I’m home I join in whatever activity is going on to help support our Constitutional rights. I have filed each letter and response under No Virginia there is no Constitution for anyone’s review. I write long letters but I do research what I write to show that Americans are not stupid and lacking in understanding of what is going on. The letters are about demanding accountability from public officials.
The responses were rather condescending and impersonal, and I did expect that but not to the extent I experienced because these politicians really think people are children. I’m working on Jim Moran’s letter. That should set off some fireworks or maybe not. The objective is to continue sending letters about anything and everything, initially I wrote about health care reform and will continue to address that issue however I do scan their websites and I track what they and vote for more closely. I’d like to see my letters yield some real response and ultimately The three objects of my political dissertations are Senator Mark Warner, Senator James Webb, and the arch nemesis of freedom and common sense (and enemy of 8-year-olds) Representative James Moran, the biggest Democrat spenders in Virginia history.
That was last year. This is now. Letters are ignored, people rallying in DC had some impact but not enough to bring the concept home to these people in Congress that we’re not happy with the direction this country is going. Now the Fifth Column is on the offensive, launching a desperate attack on patriotism, trampled our Constitution on March 21 2010 and shifted the blame for our troubles on right-wing, tea party politics. It’s on. There are a lot of people like you and me who are either scared or angry or a combination of the two and for good reason. By seeking like-minded people, rebuilding communities and families to share in this endeavor we are working together to preserve what is left of this Republic. This is our home. We will fight for it.
It’s a new year and TYRANNY has entered into our lives for all the world to see. This is an abomination. We are all angry constituents. We are going to fight for our FREEDOM! This is the face of fear, the face of what is going on in our country. Remember it. Speak, write, march, do whatever it takes to get back to the way things used to be or even better. We fell asleep at the wheel and opened up the door to this evil.
My name is M. E. Leclerc and I’m one very angry constituent. I’m a former law enforcement officer in the DC area and Navy veteran. I have lived in Northern Virginia for ten years though I spend most of the year in Iraq. My writing career pretty much slowed down a few years ago when I decided to work in Iraq but the situation in the U.S. has forced me to take up the pen or keyboard once again. In the meantime my fiction work sits in a corner, languishing from the lack of attention but this is much bigger than my stories. A lot has changed since I left home and I don’t like it, so I write before net neutrality becomes the rule of law of the web. My personal endeavors other than family and work will have to wait. This is too important. Everyone should give just a little to this effort. Each and every one of us can be part of the solution but we need to stick together and we need to be consistent and vigilant. Only when that happens will America return to its own natural form. But then some of us will have to continue to carry out the watch because human nature dictates that after the storm comes calm and with the calm people grow complacent.
That is when we start the fight for freedom all over again.
For my military and national security topics please stop by The Anvil and take a look. Don’t be discouraged by some of the titles; I write as clearly as I can for everyone to understand and if not, let me know.
Someone has to stand watch…
