An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 15 March 2009
Almost 150 years after the Civil War began between the States, we are now as divided a country as we were in 1860. We don’t wear blue or gray to distinguish sides, today, it is Democrats against Republicans. The Civil War was fought for many reasons, but a main reason was to bring unity to a growing nation. Today unity to the nation is the last thing on our politicians agenda. We are living thru an ideology crisis on both sides of the aisle. We have 435 Representatives in the House, we have 100 Senators, and we have 1 President and 1 Vice-President that makes 537 elected leaders to do the work for the people of The United States. Over 300 million Americans depend on these legislators to do the right thing for all of us. Many of us have either conservative or liberal views, and we believe in certain parts of both parties platforms. When we elect a member to an office in Washington it is our hope that we have elected someone with honesty and fairness for the position.
1 O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
