Up! Up! And Away (to Vote)!October 2nd, 2012 by Alexandria Paolozzi
Have no fear, the federal government is here! Wait… that isn’t right.
I’m no damsel in distress, and neither are you. The days of a masked hero helping those in need are, so it seems, nonexistent. But that is exactly what’s unfolding before our very eyes.
The government wants to tell “we the people” how to live. Citizens, if you think politics won’t directly affect you, think again. New York City’s mayor decided to ban sugary drink sizes to 16 ounces, putting a limit on buying soda in order to thin out an obese New York populace. Michelle “The Lunch Lady” Obama has implemented an Orwellian lunch program to regulate what American children can and cannot eat, and health (for the mother, not for the abortion-targeted baby) mandates are being shoved down citizens’ throats despite how deeply they offend citizens’ religious convictions.
And it doesn’t stop there. As if forcing you to pay for abortions weren’t enough, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius blatantly ignored — and arrogantly violated — federal law by using her Cabinet position to tell Americans to vote for President Obama.
Where are the outraged media elites? Where’s the lone, masked hero who fights against those who abuse their power? As you’ve heard, time and time again, this election is one of the most important elections of our life time. We cannot allow our government to keep implementing laws that go against “we the people.”
Americans, listen up! If you want a government that will cater to your every need, you’re living in the wrong country. This country — the one built on freedom and liberty, bought by the blood and sweat of our ancestors, and lusted after by the rest of the world — is not a country of equal handouts, but of equal opportunity to work hard to achieve our ambitions. Yet, that is not what we are seeing. Instead, we have an administration that has implemented more federal control over American citizens’ everyday lives, and what are Americans doing about it? Nothing!
It’s the American citizens’ choice, but I urge you to take a good, hard look. It’s time to bring our country back to its founding. Ben Franklin once said, “It is a republic, if we can keep it.” So, I ask, can we?
Concerned Women for America (CWA) is doing what it takes to keep our government accountable to the taxpayers. CWA’s She Votes 2012 project is working to make sure Americans are registered to vote in this extremely important election. Are you ready? Are you registered? With voter registration ending on October 8 in most states, now is not the time to idly wonder. Click here now to see if you’re registered. … And if you aren’t, stay on the site and do something about it.
