our anger and his stand
This is what it is all about. We are a Nation out of control. We are a people lost in the chaos of a corrupted government. The other night when I saw Herman Cain’s endorsement I was disgusted and felt he was playing a game by endorsing WE the American people. But after further thought and reflection I get it.
There is no politician that will swoop down and save us and to believe that means we have abdicated our rights and responsibilities as American citizens. We can not expect change if do not stand up and do what needs to be done. We have no choice but to hold our government responsible on both sides. Sometimes this requires taking a stand that others may see as causing trouble or being provocative just for the sake of being so. I however salute Tim Thomas even though he is not a New York Ranger. (my team)
The Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins visited the White House today to be honored by President Barack Obama, but the team’s star goaltender declined to attend for poltical reasons.
“I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.
This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government.
Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL.
“As an organization we were honored by President Obama’s invitation to the White House. It was a great day and a perfect way to cap our team’s achievement from last season. It was a day that none of us will soon forget. We are disappointed that Tim chose not to join us, and his views certainly do not reflect those of the Jacobs family or the Bruins organization.”
Cam Neely failed in his statement. He should have also included that even though the Bruin’s organization was disappointed by Thomas’s choice, They respected his right to have made it.
