This is not going to be an easy venture by any stretch but I believe it's important to show my commitment to the cause of restoring the U.S. Constitution as the #1 set of rules for the United States.
I'm awake now. I know what is at stake now - thanks to W. Cleon Skousen, John Adams, Glenn Beck, Bill Bennett, Dennis Prager, Senator John Cornyn, Hugh Hewitt, Mark Levin, Thomas Jefferson, Lloyd Marcus, Michael Medved, Senator Tom Coburn, Byron York, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Thomas Sowell, Barack Obama, Michael Barone, Michelle Malkin, Tim Grendel, Lawrence Wright, Steve Emerson, David Warren, Rush Limbaugh, Thomas Paine, Saul Alinsky, C.S. Lewis, Dr. Charles Krauthammer, Jonah Goldberg, Congressman Paul Ryan, to name just a few - and I intend to stay awake until this country is well on its way back from Socialism and the Republic begins to heal - providing I live long enough to see it happen, of course.
I want to be one of the many who will stand in front of the White House or on the Mall, if for no other reason than to demonstrate that my will is strong even if my body isn't.
This time in my history is critical: Barack Obama has turned out to be the icing on the cake that the Left has baked and is serving to the populace.
It is urgent that I be there: Obama is the precious jewel in Left's crown of thorns that it wants Americans to wear as we all kneel at the feet of the statues of Lenin and Mao, and, oh, let's not forget Chavez.
Our glorious and well-designed republic is in terrible danger and I cannot stay at home while supporters of Socialism and Communism are laughing at our foolish naivete.
What Communists? Where? Socialists in the White House? That's ridiculous!I could never forgive myself if I didn't stand up for my country in her desperate hour of need, or for all those real Americans who have fought and are fighting today to preserve our liberties, our Constitution - the Rule of Law.
I understand the lure of political power, to be lauded and adored and trusted by the sleepy masses, and how easy it must be to lie and cheat and steal from those who believe them. The Powerful believe there's a sucker born every minute, and millions of their constituents are fawning over themselves and proving them right.
What disappoints me the most is the vaunted 4th Estate where the writers, the journalists, the newspapers and periodicals are dipping their pens in poison ink, willing to sacrifice the golden geese who spend money on subscriptions to their propaganda. How easily the Media has given up its authority and its power to do good just for the privilege of getting to ask the first question during a presidential press conference or be granted an interview with the President of Iran.
No anti-American will ever understand what this country means to me or the millions of people who are not lucky enough to be born here but who daily kill themselves trying to get here. I told someone the other day that the only place where I was surrounded by people who looked like me was in my own house; outside, on the streets of my childhood everyone looked and sounded quite different. It wasn't a big deal, it was just how America looked then and now.
No ingrate will ever understand what magnificent opportunities they have wasted, or what important people they can become in land that appreciates how the efforts of anyone willing to work. They are truly the brave who toil for their families and their country.
No terrorist will undermine the will of a true believer, one who is grateful to God for the gift of liberty.
It's not going to be an easy trip to Washington D. C. this weekend, but as I have told you before, being an American is the best job I'll ever have, and who knows what difference an old woman will make.
I am happily different now and I need to repay the gift.
