The Herminator's Intelligent Thinker's Movement

When in the course of human events...

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the
Pursuit of Happiness.

We, the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Gives you goose bumps, doesn't it? Our founding documents are inspiring and as close to scripture as any sectarian document can be. The Declaration of Independence also says "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

A man I greatly admire, Herman Cain, believes that we must Take Back Our Government. In his words, "We, the people, must be able to provide succinct and intelligent feedback to Congress frequently and persistently. We can then hold them accountable intelligently at election time, which is our only leverage for holding their feet to the fire."

Have you called your Senator, your Congressman, your governor or your mayor? Have you told them what you want them to do? Have you written to them, emailed them? If you agree that our elected officials are not responsive to our wishes, check out H.I.T.M. If you don't agree with Herman, no problem. Find your own way, but let's take back America!

Thanks for inspiring me. You are right what good is a government for the people if we don't voice our opinions and let them know what we the people want. Thanks!

I completely agree with you, Ilona. Too many times we spend our energy making our voices heard to each other but not to the people we have entrusted to represent us. I pledge to do better!
