We get so bombarded with noise. Noisy news...other people's views...other people's opinions...other people's wars. Cell phones and emails, texts and some of us even faxes. That the silence at the end of the day or the end of the week is so precious. That the silence that goes with the East Texas sunset, a glass of wine and just being, dreaming off in the distance makes it all bearable. But don't let our desire to have quiet and peace make us silent. I don't get political and don't want to be political. But as Americans, or should I just start with us Texans, don't let us lose our voice. I believe the majority of us Democrats, Republicans or whatever are losing our rights and freedoms at a pace I've never seen...because we are silent.
Over the years I knew those that talk normally don't do anything. And those that do, don't talk. But our talkers today talk out of both sides of their mouths. And the louder they talk, the more silent we get. It is amazing to me that everybody I know wants the same. They want to be free to pursue dreams, free to make decisions, free to take risks, free to fail, free to succeed and free to choose. And everybody I know has no intent or desire to hurt or do unjust. But a small group of radicals on every side of every issue have the voices today. Bullies that stop at nothing to create misery, fear and guilt with everyone that's not boisterous.
I've heard people say they've got a sixth sense - something like intuition or gut feel. Good for them. All I ask is use your common sense. If the rule is good for the goose, it should be good for the gander and if you don't need a rule, even better. Take responsibility for yourself and for those that value the freedoms that we're giving up everyday. Wake up, stand up, get up, go to work, build your own dreams and your own destiny. It's not muscles and mouth that maketh a man, but patience and wisdom and a voice of reason. Ask the good Lord for wisdom and surround yourself with the wise.
We, the majority of Americans, have to speak up. We have to say enough is enough. And no more talk. We need to find doers that can dismantle the burdens and the mine fields of regulations and rules and obligations that we have to crawl through to live our dreams. And yes, we used to be free and it is almost just dreams of that freedom that is left. The birthplace of big government is somewhere in my small town America. And we, the silent majority, feed that monster to devour us when we don't know it anymore. It's time to not be silent. Our silence will be the end of the shining city on the hill.
