Here’s a clip of the short speech I made in DC last Friday evening to the 120 Beaufort County folks who made the trek to our nation’s capital:
I rode to DC with my constituents because I believe our federal government has embarked upon a course of action that is deforming the relationship between Americans and their government.
There is hope; no need to throw in the towel just yet. As Adam Smith said, “there is a lot of ruin in a nation,” and a country has to travel long and hard in the wrong direction before the damage becomes irreversible. But too many people fail to even realize we have taken a wrong turn.
Our elected officials have failed us, and there’s plenty of blame to go around. I am angry not just with the current administration and governing parties in Congress, but also with Republican leaders who have in recent years voted for massive new entitlements. That said, however, the Obama Administration has certainly stomped on the accelerator.
If you share my concerns, or if you simply like participating in lively political debates, I invite you to become a “friend” of my Facebook page, where I periodically post stories of interest (well, at least of interest to me!). You can also follow me on Twitter.
