Wake up, speak out, get out and vote

The government belongs to us. Wake up! Speak Out! As an American citizen we have a rare and precious privilege called Freedom of Speech which is not allowed in many parts of our world.

Talk, write, speak what is needed. We have been silent too long. Write or call your congressman and tell them that we do not like or agree with their policies. We do not like our money being sent to these governments that hate America and kill our ambassadors. These dictators do not use the money for their people but buy weapons to use against us and their own citizens. Yet, we keep sending them money. Speak out citizens of the USA. No more free money. We can not buy their friendship — we tried and it failed. Those funds could be used domestically for  food for Americans that need it.

Another privilege we have is to vote. Take this privilege seriously. Get out and vote.
