Letter to the editor: Now is the time
Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country!
Anyone that took a type class in high school recognizes this statement as a typing exercise that you were assigned to type over and over again. Little did I know it would someday serve me as a title for a subject I feel strongly about.
For a little over a year I have been watching Glenn Beck wage an almost lone effort to expose corruption in our former and present administration, the two major political parties, czars, Acorn, SEIU, and much more. I've watched this naturally lighthearted comic becomes so concerned by our country's crises that the natural comic has become a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders. He would gladly tackle this job alone; he's that kind of patriot. But he knows this job is too big for one man and so now he is asking all of us to help by being watchdogs or anonymous whistle blowers.
A watchdog with access and knowledge of previously recorded video and audiotapes exposed Van Jones, one of the president's advisors, for what he was and as a result the President gave Jones the choice to resign or be let go.
Then two young people took it upon themselves to video and audio record several Acorn officers, which exposed corruption, and led to the firing of several employees. Who knows where this will lead. Congress has finally asked for an investigation.
One man can't adequately cover every thing that needs investigating. Where is the major media? Congress is starting to show some stirring but where are the investigative reporters? Where are the Attorney Generals in all the states affected? The participation in the tea parties and 9-12 rallies indicate there were many patriots that have been concerned but didn't know what to do until Beck took the lead and gave them and me an assignment and direction in which to move.
Beck is a host of Fox Television News, he is a radio talk show host, author, husband, father, Christian and patriot. He is asking for our help.
If you know of illegal government action, be an anonymous whistle blower. If you see something corrupt, be a watchdog. I don't pretend to speak for anyone but myself when I say, "It's hard to get public trust back once it's lost." Many of our leaders actions for the past nine years seems to be to be making things worse as if by design. People are hurting. Beck is asking for our help. Be a watchdog or an anonymous whistle blower. Take our Country back from corruption and secret organizations.
Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.
