Jefferson’s Message To Massachusetts Voters

“I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion.”  – Thomas Jefferson

To the Massachusetts Voters: On Tuesday, you will vote for a new Senator to fill the vacant seat of the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy.

BE that enlightened people who Jefferson refers to above. Stand up for your conviction.

In 1775, with “The shot heard ’round the world,” it was the colonists of Massachusetts who led the Revolutionary War against tyranny and oppression from England. So it seems appropriate that it is you who have the chance to lead a new revolution against another government who are equally indifferent to our will and, if not confronted,  would lead us back to tyranny and oppression.

Unbelievably, that government is, once again, our own. The difference this time is that you can fire that first shot using the ballot of democracy… perhaps the greatest gift of our forefathers.

The stakes are these: Sending a Republican to the Senate in replacement of the current Democrat breaks the 60 seat majority currently held by Senate Democrats. It also ends the so-called filibuster-proof Senate, and would put the passage of the healthcare bill back to where it would have to be  discussed openly and not behind closed doors. 

Making your decision how to vote is very simple: Compare your heritage to those currently leading our government:

  • Barack Obama, and the Democratic Congress wants a government large enough to control every aspect of our lives under the guise of “redistributing the wealth.”
  • Yet it was your own President John F. Kennedy who implored we not ask what our country can do for us, but ask what we can do for our country. In this case, we don’t need to ask. We know. What remains is simply to do it.

The free enterprise system and democracy have “done” for our country more than any other form of government on earth. It has given us a health system that is the envy of the world as witnessed by those who travel here to pay for treatment their own country denies them through socialized medicine.

It has given us the ability to make breakthroughs in such research areas as health, science, agriculture and so many other areas that have enabled us to enjoy a higher living condition than much of the world. Yet it has also enabled us to provice for those less fortunate and to provide emergency relief around the world as we are doing currently in Haiti.

Sadly, we may not be able to do any of this  in the future if we don’t get quality, and accountable representation back in positions of authority. It all can start here once again, by voting for Scott Brown. OR we can continue down the path of the “Hopeless Change” of Barack Obama’s ego-fueled socialist agenda.

The choice is yours, Massachusetts.  You made the right choice nearly 245 years ago. You have the chance to lead the way again. America is calling.
