Chief Operating Officer
[Apologies to Carl Sigman and Robert Maxwell, creators of “Ebb Tide,” a beautiful song]
First the tide rushes in,
Plants a dream on the shore,
Then dams out the sea
And the sea is very still once more.
So we rush to your side,
A new oncoming tide
With one burning thought.
Will your minds open wide?
At last we’re face to face
And as you spurn with false embrace,
We can tell, we can feel,
Your greed is real.
In the rain, in the dark, in the sun.
Like the tide at its ebb
We are caught in the web
Of your harm.
The plan is ongoing still, despite its resounding rejection by the people in November, 2014. My consternation is caused by Obama’s expansion of the meaning of “greed.” We the people have always been plagued by our leaders’ unscrupulous pursuit of money via the power of tenure. But now we are subjected to an administrative greed that includes the fruition of an ideology other than thievery. Obama is steadily moving our country toward being a socialist state. He is so obstinately dedicated to this cause that he routinely skirts or ignores the Constitution to make it happen. His followers, including the media, hide the President behind his historically unique status. His charm and persuasiveness disguise the fact that the truth is not in him. The members of Congress should emulate Obama’s zeal with indignant, substantive opposition. They do not.
The brilliance of our Founders is virtually unbounded. Their vision led to the inclusion in the Constitution of a remedy to this abysmal situation. It is found in Article Five:
The Convention of States Project is actively pursuing this goal. This very well organized effort invokes a strategy of generalizing the text of the proposed amendment (reduce the power of government) for the sake of uniformity. Check the link for more information. Yours truly is a proud volunteer. You should be, too!
Honoring the will of the people? What a concept!
