Protests across the country have been planned for 9/17/11, a Day of Rage. I favor tribal sovereignty over reform of the US Government. Still, it is good to see that people are mobilizing.
Legitimate government is born of the self-interest and will of the people expressed by its citizens in free and fair elections. It does not spring from a tyranny of special patronage, or a system or ideology that runs counter to the aims of life.
Bought by hard and soft dollars, disloyal, incompetent, and wasteful special interests have usurped our nation’s civil and military power, spawning a host of threats to liberty and our national security.
Free and fair elections inspire good citizenship and public service, because they engage the intelligence and genuine good will of the American people. They produce the kind of stewardship our nation desperately needs, because they ensure that citizens can influence their destiny, and make genuine contributions to society.
