That is a great question. I have a video you should watch from the Glen Beck program on Fox news. It is very enlightening. Here’s the link; http://www.aclj.org/OnTheTv/?aP=C36C9996-9E58-44CF-A539-E6694BEFF3E5&mmType=4 Jay Sekulow from the American Center For Law & Justice, Judge Andrew Napolitano and Tim Lynch from the Cato Institute hit the nail on the head. According to Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution, the powers of congress are limited. Get this section out for yourself and read it. Any words you don’t know look up in a dictionary. Congress does not have unlimited powers.
The Founding Fathers expected that the members of congress would take their oath seriously, to uphold the constitution and not pass unconstitutional legislation. If they did pass a bill that was unconstutuional then the president would, taking his oath seriously, veto the bill. If the president signed the bill the courts would then knock it down because it was unconstitional. These are the checks and balances that were created for us.
Today though our entire government is filled with politicians who have contempt for our constutution. With such contempt, by even our president, anything goes and the slick politicians and marketing executives know best. When our checks and balances fail it is up to us, the people, to rise up and apply mountains of pressure to our politicians. Don’t stop. Don’t give up. Keep talking to your representatives and senators. Be forceful and passionate but be polite. Talk to your friends and get them educated on the issues and the constitution. Our kids and grandkids are depending on you. Be an activist for our constitution.

Thank you. All of you mob-like men, women and children of all ages. It is you that have kept us from falling off a cliff. But there is much more work to do. President Obama and his supporters will stop at nothing to take our liberty and freedom from all of us including those he pretends to help.
Honestly, those who act like there is nothing wrong and that the government knows best are fooling themselves. Or, how about those who tell you that there is such a thing as free healthcare and point to the UK as an example. And when you explain to them that nothing is free. Somebody has to pay for it. They shake their head and walk away mumbling to themselves.
You protesters out there are not only standing up against a well oiled machine for your own freedom and liberty, but also for those who think you are a fool and a fanatic.
So, keep going to townhall meetings and speaking your mind as passionately as you feel like. Keep writing letters to your congressmen and women, senators, and the president himself. Keep sending e-mails until their servers crash. Keep calling until their phone lines go down. Be polite but be forceful and never let them tell you that they know best and you should just listen.
Only you know what is the best thing for you to do for yourself, your family, your church, your community and your country. That is what freedom is all about. Deciding for oneself what is the right thing to do. Don’t let some slick politician come along and persuade you that some government beaurocrat can decide for you better than you can.
To keep those letters and phone calls coming here’s a link to find your congressman: http://www.congress.org/congressorg/directory/congdir.tt
