It's still "We the People!" Right?

How did we get here? Why did it take so long? How do we get back?

Incrementalism is a method of working by adding to a project using many small, incremental changes instead of a few (extensively planned) large jumps.

That is how we got here, why it took so long and most importantly how we will start to get back.

Ron Paul has spoken about this. He says this today about health care and when people ask "do you think it will pass?" he always points out that we are incrementalist and will get some form of this government health care. It is the Macro result that we all see.

I lay this out to challenge all of us to think about what we are doing in these terms. More specifically, here is what I see and hear from my brothers and sisters....

-Medina is not for 9/11 truth
-Peter Schiff would attack Iran
-Rand Paul supports the Afgan War
-Ron Paul and C4L threw us under the bus.(Joe Buck)
-Revolution Right Now!

Each of these issues are obviously a concern for most of us but lets step back and weight the scale.

-Debra Media stands for limited government. She is for strong border defense, private property rights, core constitutional values and state rights.

-Peter Schiff is of the Austrian School of economics and practices sound money principles. Peter Schiff stands for limited constitutional government. He is a supporter of private property and state rights.

-Rand Paul is a chip off the ol'e block. State Rights, strong constitutionalists, private property, sound money, elimination of government in the private sector, against undeclared wars.

- Ron Paul (I think we all have about 30 years and running on his credentials)If I need to explain his stance on non interventionism , sound money, and constitutional government then (Houston we have a problem)

-Revolution Now! is simply going to get us all killed.

We have a chance to take back government. We can take it back incrementally.

Imagine where we are today. Now imagine all these socialist laws and practices dumped on this country in a 6 month span....You would have complete and utter chaos and resistance.

Now Imagine the conversion to 100% Constitutional government in a 6 month span. You would have complete and utter chaos and resistance.

Let's be practical. We have an opportunity to support a good field of good candidates that can help "incrementally" change the direction of this country. You don't have to agree 100% with 100% of all their views.

If that were the case we have some real basic and fundamental challenges to resolve as a movement because I am not with those who are after that type
of All or nothing logic and am willing to bet I am not the only one.

I really don't want to take away from my above statements and make this a hit piece but I must site this next statement as a glaring example.

Alex Jones.

Alex Jones is an all or nothing influential but reckless figure in Texas. His antics just may divide us enough to cost the best chance we have at a what some would say 98% candidate. For the sake of what could be, please reject Alexism.

I know we can incrementally change government in half the time. It takes patience, persistence, wisdom, and a good teacher (wink wink)

It's still "We the People Right!"

It's all the heathcare talk

subliminal....(corrected) thanks

The advantage of this approach is:

We will be educating and folks will be waking up more all the time---so what may seem to be a baby step, will become a mama step at the next level, and so on!
Consider the strides some states are making with the 10th Amendment legislation and repealing the Real ID!
We can also see this with the elections. Most of us agree that Scott Brown is no true conservative---but it is a baby step. Some of the coming races, such as Rand in Kentucky and Rubio in Florida are bigger steps.
Other entrenched politicians in Arizona, Nevada, California and elsewhere are reported to be in trouble, and look how many entrenched politicians are choosing to not run for reelection?

Very good points!

Especially the one on the 10th.

I just learned today that Michigan is close to getting this motion out of committee and are really pushing for a vote by the people in November...a vote by "We the People" (of Michigan)

You Rock!

I wish more people felt this way

We would stand a chance at getting it together for this country,anything less is destined to fail.
Thanks Dexter.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

I think more people do think this way.

Because they know that the days of apathy are long gone!

Dex,

I know you are right,But I see it more outside in the real world not on this site.What I see here is we take one candidate and expect this person to be perfect.We then try to make this one person change the world overnight.One person cannot fix every problem.We must learn patience,It is like fishing,you are not going to catch a fish every time you throw out the bait.

Good analogy

One thing that really disturbing is when we shoot ourselves in the foot like with Debra M. I think the wound will heal.

I have actually been pretty encouraged lately outside the family. It seem alot of my co-workers and friends are waking up and at least listening to me these days, Before it was like I went nuts and they avoided the topic of government.

Today they are listening and engaging even debating me. I love it!

I think you are experiencing

the same thing I am,Because of the drastic problems right now in this country the everyday topics are now all about politics,It would be nice to go back to a day when the big story of the day was how big of a fish you caught.People are starting to have nightmares in their sleep about these problems but are not sure what to do about them.

You and I know it will get bad

Much worse...It is good people are noticing. It will motivate them.

I haven't fished in years....It's about time I give it a few casts...I owe it to my kids to teach em

You and Dex said it well.

I haven't taken any "meds" but most people are thinking I am a bit less 'crazy' that I was in 2008! Because THEY are waking up!
My husband tells everyone that the election of BO was actually a good thing----he has taken us so quickly down the road to destruction, that folks can't help but notice and become alarmed.

I agree with your husband

I just hope it is enough to get it fixed,Yet it will never happen without "Direction".We need to fix it one issue at a time.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

We will get there!

with a little help

Sorry. Title did it to me. Now I'm going to have that song in my head all day.

You make Dave Mustaine proud!
