â€œIf we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known, that we are at all times ready for War.â€
The above quote is from our first president, George Washington. If the â€œFather of Our Countryâ€ were alive today and in command of our forces in Iraq, I wonder what he would say about the Murtha inspired, Pelosi driven cut and run bill passed by the House of Representatives Friday.
How would our great leader of men, who fought tirelessly for freedom and democracy just as our brave men and women and the Iraqi people are doing today, react at this betrayal of Congress? We know that Washington had to spar and cajole the Continental Congress to support its Army. General David Petraeus in Iraq must be feeling somewhat like General Washington some 240 years later.
Our country is engaged in a battle for freedom not only for our country, but also for the free world and what does the House do. Rod Martin put it best on his blog:
â€œNancy Pelosi and John â€˜Abscamâ€™ Murtha passed their Pre-emptive Surrender Bill 218-212 only moments ago. The bill not only places a timeline on troop withdrawal â€” the single worst message we could send our enemies â€” it also denies crucial funding to the troops, including for needed armor (because we know the Dems really â€˜careâ€™). And perhaps worst (and most unconstitutionally) of all, it requires the Commander-in-Chief to give Congress 15 days notice before any troop deployment.â€
The Democrats actually believe they are in charge of the execution of the war! This has to stop! I cannot stand the thought of the John Murthaâ€™s, Nancy Pelosiâ€™s, and Maxine Watersâ€™ of this country determining how best to protect our freedom.
Dear American, if this does not wake you up, nothing will. Most Americans decry the state of our nation because the politicians do whatever they want. They do so because we let them! It is time to take back our government. It is time to put these â€œrepresentativesâ€ back in their places. They serve us, not the other way around. Here is your chance to make your voice heard.
I am urging you to dip into your wallets and spend $20 ($39 if youâ€™re really mad!) and contact the Dems and let them know how furious you are with them. TheVanguard.org has set up a blast fax that you can send to the Dem leaders ($19.99) or all the Dems ($39).
TheVanguard.org is also asking that we â€œcall the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for Nancy Pelosiâ€™s office. Let her know how much the terrorists appreciate her work on their behalf.â€
Please take this action! My son Eddieâ€™s letter â€œHope Rides Aloneâ€ touched many peoplesâ€™ lives (over 567 contacts) and there are many more Americans out there who support the troops and abhor what the Democrats are doing. Will you please join me and TheVanguard.org in pushing back against the nonsense? May God bless you all and our great country!
