Okay, Why Not!

Apparently, I hit a nerve for some with my previous post, “Why?”. I admit I was hoping to start a conversation about the government and all the issues we intelligent, open-minded, forward thinking, a/k/a spiritual gurus have with our governments. The response to that post has really got me thinking. I love how my friend and fellow blogger, Lisa at Road to Nowhere phrased it in her comment to me: My thought here: our society has gotten snobby and incredibly selfish. Most have come to believe, for whatever reason, businessmen/women are the only ones capable of running a country. It takes “brains” and education to be an official in office. We’ve lost site of what’s important, lost site of the fact that our world would run just fine w/o the interference of man, lost site of the fact that our Higher Power CREATED this world to run perfectly w/o us butting in. For example: Wolf hunts. Some states have made wolf hunting legal and are now overrun with other animals and now want to make hunting those animals legal to cut down on population. Had the governments in these places just left it alone, let the life cycle run its course the way our Higher Power intended it to be, things would be just fine. Instead, a bunch of “educated suits” got together and just declared more legal murder of these precious animals. It is INSANE. We’ve lost our way and have forgotten the importance of simply taking care of one another. Quite honestly, the destruction in our world has become such a “norm” that I wouldn’t have a clue where to begin if I were ever elected but I’d sure not be afraid to give it a try. (emphasis added).

So, I’ve started a draft of a letter to the governments of the world. Since so many of us live in the United States, I feel we should start with the government here. But I certainly intend to share this letter for those of you in other countries to send to your governments. In fact, I feel so strongly about this matter, you may address the letter to the appropriate officials and sign your name to the letter.

Dear President______________

As I’m sure you have noticed, the country, in fact, the world, is a mess. I realize when you took office your intention was to clean-up the mess and start correcting much of the negative issues with our country. However, you and the officials under you have forgotten some very important points upon which this country was founded.

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.

There is now a growing faction among us which feel the time has come to “provide new guards for our future security”. Fear not, we are peaceable, non-violent people with intense spiritual intentions. As a dear friend so eloquently worded it . . . “We’ve lost site of what’s important, lost site of the fact that our world would run just fine w/o the interference of man, lost site of the fact that our Higher Power CREATED this world to run perfectly w/o us butting in. For example: Wolf hunts. Some states have made wolf hunting legal and are now overrun with other animals and now want to make hunting those animals legal to cut down on population. Had the governments in these places just left it alone, let the life cycle run its course the way our Higher Power intended it to be, things would be just fine. Instead, a bunch of “educated suits” got together and just declared more legal murder of these precious animals. It is INSANE. We’ve lost our way and have forgotten the importance of simply taking care of one another. Quite honestly, the destruction in our world has become such a “norm” that I wouldn’t have a clue where to begin . . .”

And I am sure you have noticed, it is not only animals. We have children killing children, we have homelessness, hunger, and poverty to a degree which is beyond shame and degradation. This gentle faction is wondering how this country would fare were the Congressmen, Senators, and other government officials to be replaced with; blue-color workers, environmentalist, people who care more for saving the environment and all the creatures therein, who will worry first about the homeless and hungry before the paycheck associated with the job assigned to them, will tell the banks, insurance companies, oil companies and other big business, enough is enough.

Quite honestly, the government is out of control and we who care what will be left for our children and grandchildren are telling you, you had your chance, now we are going to start moving in. Yes, the tree-huggers, the animal saviors, the environmental activists, and the normal, everyday people who pray for a better world will be running for office in every state. So, please allow this letter to serve as official notification that we will no longer sit idly by and watch while you continue to destroy the earth and all the life hereon. Now, we are stepping up and preparing to join the ranks of the offices which run this country.

We look forward to working with you and hope that the transition from a greedy, money-hungry, selfish, self-centered government to a peaceful, spiritually guided, and earth conscious government, will be a smooth and enjoyable exeperience.

See you on the next ballot.

Sincerely,
We The People
