Mr. President, you now have your change!

Our fellow countrymen protested and now "they" do not want us to be heard because "they" would sooner dismiss logical debate and conversation in lieu of socialist utopian pipe dreams and uneducated youth spewing lies and deceit.

The truth is, something is wrong with our country. Where we had the freedom to object, to think and speak as we saw fit, we now have public censors within the media, coercing conformity and arresting our submission to the government.

We see the line blurred between a media supportive of government and one that feels no obligation to the truth. This blurred line is the conversion to socialism.

Who is to blame? Certainly, there are those more responsible than others -- and they say, "I'll be held accountable" -- but if you look for the truly guilty, you need only look in the mirror.

"They" were afraid.

Who wouldn't be? War, terror, loss of wages, the loss of your home, ever increasing healthcare costs -- and the ominous specter of Global Warming.

There were a myriad of problems that corrupted their reasoning and robbed them of their common sense.

The government promised to fix all of their problems, to penalize the rich and reward the poor. All they demanded in return was your silent obedience.

During our last march on Washington, we sought to end that silence against the wishes of a compliant media.

We marched to remind this country of what it has forgotten.

Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are more than just words.. They are American perspectives.

If you see what we see, if you feel what we feel, and if you would seek as we seek, then we ask you to get off the couch, become involved, and stand with us in opposing the overthrow of "We the People" and together we will give them a fight "they" will never forget.
