The Time Is Now....


Today, I am encouraging anyone who reads this "blog"....democrat or republican...to call your state senators and representatives. This large stimulus bill (or should I say a wish list for all the senators) is buried with more and more items that have nothing to do with stimulating the economy. This bill will now go through a revision process in committees.

I am encouraging you to go beyond what you hear from the mainstream media and REALLY look at this bill...like the "healthcare" national coordinator item or the education funding based on religious clubs...my goodness, there is so much!{Also, I never knew that frisbee parks, new highways and bridges would stimulate the economy}

This is the website....look up your state and all the numbers are there to call. Unless you are in the political arena this is the only way to VOICE. If there has ever been a time for Americans to start CARING...it's now!

I know that my God is in control. However, we need to stop just praying and start ACTING,too! Benjamin Franklin, George Washington and many of our founding fathers didn't sit in their cabins or homes waiting for the British to come...they acted and spoke out.

I leave you with this quote....many have predicted in the past "our future"....their predictions are coming true....

"We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism." -- Nikita Khrushchev

p.s. I know, we bloggers, like warm and fuzzy feelings when we read blogs but there is more to life than just decorating, birthday parties and recipes.

I have already contacted my congressman about this fiasco! I think today my senator will be hearing from me as well. I really don't think people realize all the underlying things in this package and how it will affect them. We must educate ourselves and ACT!

duchess said...

I'm so glad you posted this - we do need to act now. I'm just afraid that the media is scaring people into thinking this ridiculous bill is the only option.
Love seeing this side of you, my SC team has been voting NO the whole time hopefully some others will join in.

Heather said...

This is a great place to put your voice and help others call to act!
I will do it!

I so agree with you. We have tried this thing before, It was called the New Deal. It was suppose to get us out of the depression, but caused it to continue longer. This is a pretty informative article from someone I heard on the radio today.

I applaud you for speaking out. If we don't speak up, we will lose our country. If we lose our country, what have we done to our kids?

Joanna said...

I respect that you do not like the bailout, but what about the one under George W. Bush that basically took our money and lined the pockets of the very rich, this may not be socialism but it is clearly Fascism. That scares me more, my money creating multimillion dollar bonuses for the allready extremely wealthy. I just wish that when things were done under Republicans it was given as much attention as Democrats. Sure I don't agree with this, I would consider myself more in line with Ron Paul on this but most Republicans pushed through the last one and got no flack for it. At least this stimulus is mostly to put back into the pockets of people who are paying for it, at least the intentions appear to be better. However I will read your links and appreciate you caring about the issues we are facing.

Sandy Toes, I feel that your post is so important that my post today simply points everyone here.

Mimi Sue said...

Amen, sister.

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I agree! I will pass this on to my very political husband-who is already fuming about this very issue.

The Thompson's said...

Amen sister Amen! All Obama's package is going to do is create more debt while doing NOTHING for the economy. However, those who voted for him surely should have known that this was what he was going to do.

While my prayers are with him and his staff, I do hope they finally realize that more spending is NOT the way to go.

lmerie said...

I just called to see if Georgia Senator Chambliss was still voting no and he is.

If they would just trim the fat and the far out parts!

::Jan:: said...

I believe in this action strongly too. Sandy. Thanks for pointing this out. If it talks like socialism, it is socialism. I am so sad for my daughter today.

jennykate77 said...

Emily said...

Kacey R. said...

This is a great post and I will check out the link you provided. Brian and I were just discussing this. We tend to disagree on most political points (makes things interesting) but this is something we are both concerned about. Thanks for the info.

vicki said...

Do you guys remember the President that said "You have nothing to fear but fear itself?"

He was a dem that created the welfare system..

Well .. this dem is now creating fear to increase the welfare system.

A true leader would not give such scary warnings and only one solution that 50% of the political machines do not approve ..

He isnt even a dem
He is a socialist

A government big enough to give you everyhting you want
can take everything you want away from you!

vicki said...

If you have to be Anonymous about what your grey matter produces (your brain?!)
then you really shouldn't speak
Because you are scared to be associated with your thoughts ..

Liz said...

Great post! There is a lot of crazy stuff going on, that is for sure. Scary times are ahead. I still believe that God is in control though. But our voices definitely need to be heard.

nikkicrumpet said...

Great post!!! And I'm so glad you did it. More people need to realize what is lurking in that spending spree!

Smelling Coffee said...

So true - and so glad you posted this info and encouraged others to call and make their voices heard. Now, more than ever, we need to stand up and speak up while we can!

theArthurClan said...

I will definitely be checking out the links you provided...the little bit I know about this bill scares the heck out of me. It's always good to be well-informed. Thanks for sharing this!

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

This has been eating at me too.
I think it is time for 'we the people' to stand up!
Great post!... great blog :-)
