This week, for the first time in America’s history, Standard & Poor’s downgraded the U.S.’s AAA credit rating to AA+, slamming the nation’s political process and criticizing lawmakers for failing to cut spending or raise revenue enough to reduce the unfathomable record of the budget deficit.
Alan Greenspan, who, for 19 years was the chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, predicts that the sharp falls on Wall Street will continue, and that the downgrade will result in sales’ drive. Greenspan says that the downgrade has struck a very sensitive nerve of the U.S., and something bad has happened. Given the momentum and strength in which the markets fell last week, it’s very unlikely that the stock exchanges will rise from their low any time soon and Greenspan predicts continued decline.
But this is not the only downgrading the United States has suffered. There is downgrading all around and the worst of all is the downgrading of the United States’ protocol and its purpose.
A country without a purpose brings about the question, who are we? Why there is a USA in the world? What is the reason for America’s existence? What is our mandate? Since it took many years and much blood to create this exceptional land of Liberty, can we, the Americana People, continue to hold to this Liberty mandated to us by this country’s Founding Fathers? Can this Liberty creation be emulated should the original has been destroyed?
No matter what President Obama has done thus far, no matter what he has taken from the American People so far, and no matter what financial burden this Nation must bear, there is one thing we, the American People, cannot permit him, or, for that matter anyone else, to bargain away the soul of this nation. Here we must draw the line, loud and clear. While at the end we may recoup our financial losses from President Obama’s failed domestic policies, we can never reclaim this nation if we embrace a foreign policy that betrays our allies, especially our greatest ally, Israel, and align ourselves with terrorists. Such a policy would not only lead to the destruction of the moral fiber that binds Americans to their own humanity, but would bring about financial and cultural ruin to our nation.
Just as a small pebble can start an out of control avalanche, the American people cannot and must not rest until millions of good and righteous people arise to stop those who would destroy Israel and then bring America to her knees. Our clear voices must be heard, we cannot be silent.
We must take our voices to the floor of the People’s House in Washington; take our voices to the Well!
It is obvious that Israel has been and is receiving tremendous pressure, directly from President Obama and his administration, demanding she negotiates with the Arabs and the 1967 armistice lines is a starting point for new borders. Implementation of these borders would mean that parts of Israel, essential for her defense, would become a Fatah-Hamas territories, the front for the Palestinian Authority-Hamas terror unity, regardless of any U.N mandate.
The reality is clear: Obama’s resolution at the G-8 and a U.N mandate are one and the very same, which is to place Israel in a most vulnerable, threatened position by September 2011, when the Palestinian Authority will ask the U.N General Assembly to, unilaterally, approve them statehood, thus forcing Israel to negotiate with genocidal terrorists. If the President were to pursue his desired course of action to fruition, the United States would be destined to collapse from within. She would never recover from the debt she incurred from abandoning her position as the defender of freedom in this world.
What can we do? Many agree that we must do something, but what? Some say we must make our demands directly to the President, through the White House, while others argue we must demand that Congress ends appropriations to the Fatah/Hamas criminal terrorist enterprise. Unfortunately, none of the suggested strategies have been effective in stopping Obama’s advance; he has let us know that he is not going to listen and he is not listening. In order for us to be victorious, we need to change our tactics – apply an effective strategy that can produce real results and a change.
What is the proven strategy?
There is one proven strategy that will work and it requires a simple action from all who are concerned. Get involved, use the power of We, The People! Achieve what Americans were able to accomplish in 2007. In 2007, there was a push by President George W. Bush to pass the “Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act.” Many Americans disapproved the bill, so they “melted the phone lines” to Washington, day after day, until Congress got the message loud and clear, and the bill was not passed. The initiative was finally abandoned.
Now it is the American People time to turn up the heat on Washington. While implementing the same strategy is crucial, our challenge is far greater. The severity of the threat that our nation is facing from Obama’s foreign policy toward Israel is unprecedented, with possible ramifications that this nation cannot endure. It now calls for nothing less than a Congressional State-of-Emergency Referendum.
Time to tap, again, into the power that Congress can exercise from the Well of the House, which will produce the desirous results. The American People must take the People’s message to the Well, the “American People’s Soap Box,” so that our Representatives can make our case directly to the citizens of this great nation.
While we first concentrate our forces to get the desired effect in Washington, such as flooding the phone lines of the members of Congress and get their attention, our plan, however, is far more reaching.
We have to do whatever it takes and is necessary to protect and defend the United States, and to ensure Israel’s survival.
The time has come to acknowledge and thwart the impending destruction of Israel and America from within. While we, Americans, cannot tell Israel what actions to take, our job, as American citizens, is to demand that President Obama, the leader of the free world, stands against a terrorist initiative, and defends Israel. Therefore, it behooves us all to call our Congressional representatives and demand of them to do their job; let democracy work for all of us. This is their obligation to those who sent them to Washington and our, the People, right. It is their responsibility to keep justice alive in the land.
If the men and women of Israel Defense Forces-IDF are putting themselves in harm’s way, each day, on the front line fighting Islamic terror and jihad, the least we, here in America, can do is honor them by taking action to help them from afar.
Make no mistake about this. This is a Constitutional issue. How can the President of the United States embrace a terrorist initiative, thus after he was sworn to protect the Constitution of this Land from enemies, foreign and domestic? Thus, by supporting a terrorist initiative he has violated his oath of office and must relinquish power.
At this juncture, only unconditional victory over the enemies of America and Israel and the free world is acceptable.
