Who's To Blame?

I got an interesting e-mail about who's to blame for our country's problems from Earl Long of FairTax.org. He seems to be willing to except some of the blame and he issues a warning.

Good morning FairTaxers,

Speaking in terms which are not easily misunderstood ain’t always easy.

Recently in conversation concerning the FairTax, I couldn’t resist a few
words about the miscreant politicians who frequently tell people that
all maladies economic, suffered by the general population, are someone
else’s fault. That is to say, ineffective government, inadequate
unions, greedy individuals and corporations, and sundry evil plots are
offered up to the old “blame game.”

The person to whom I spoke responded incredulously, “Isn’t that exactly
what the FairTax message is? It’s the government’s fault!”

Folks, for the record, this is my opinion: All, I repeat all, idiotic,
irresponsible and oppressive action taken by our government is our
fault. Period! We do still live under a constitutional republic. The
government can only do what we, by acceptance, will tolerate.

I have never lynched a congressman or senator, but I have seen many who
earned just such a fate. Nevertheless, I certainly should have done
something. The fact that until recent years I did nothing isn’t someone
else’s fault. If we continue to do nothing I guarantee we will get the
same result.

The Geezer

How often does the media tell us about something the powers that be have planned and we go on with our daily lives without contacting our elected officials to let them know how we feel about the action they are about to take? If we don't hold their feet to the fire every time we feel they are trying to pass an unconstitutional bill we will have only ourselves to blame when our Republic comes crashing down.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.
