A Patriots Duty

I have a question for you. Do you think it is unpatriotic to disagree with the president's (or federal governments) decisions and policies? I guess I had a couple of questions. Do you think our Founding Fathers felt that United States citizens should support the president and federal governments decisions and policies 100% of the time, no questions ask? The Constitution Party's (www.constitutionparty.com) 2004 Vice Presidential candidate, Chuck Baldwin wrote an article that got me to start thinking about those two questions. You can read the article at, http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/cwarchive_041205.html you will find quotes telling how a couple of our Founding Fathers felt about the federal government there.

I feel the duty of a patriot is to question everything the federal government does. I don't mean oppose everything. I'm saying contact your elected officials and ask them for their opinion of bills that are before congress. Let them know how you feel about the legislation they are working on, it's going to effect you and future generations. I feel this is what our Founding Fathers intended for us to do. I don't think they wanted United States citizens to become the herd of sheep that many of them make up today.

I think it is the duty of every citizen to verify what the government (at any level) tells them. We can't simply believe what we are told because a person is in our Party, religious faith or even because they are a friend. Only if we verify and do our own research can we make the best decisions on election day. That's a point I always try to hammer home. Cheers!
