Vasko Kohlmayer at The American Thinker asks a great question facing us conservatives today.
Do we have what it Takes?excerpt from his artical
"But even as the American people are increasingly looking to conservatism for deliverance, we need to ask whether we have what it takes to tackle the existential challenges this country faces. Many of us may be startled by this question since we take it for granted that our side has exactly what America needs at this difficult hour. But even a quick look at the Massachusetts race should make it obvious why this question must be asked."
I have been struggling (for some time) with what and where you and I, as The People, if I may, want as a form of government. I believe that the Constitution, is not a living document with flaws. But is as written. But am I wrong?
Over the next few weeks, with your help, I will ask this very question. I plan on reviewing our Constitution, article by article, amendment by amendment. I want open honest debate and opinion. What changes, if any, would you make. What you really think our nation's beliefs are in this moment in history and the direction we should follow, as pertaining to the subject being discussed. I would like for all who respond to keep to the one item, and not referring forward to other articles or amendments, but as the discussion progresses referring back (as pertaining to the subject at hand) will be allowed. Each subject will be open for two days then will move to the next.
This is not a Republican, Democrat, Conservative, Liberal or Progressive forum, it is open to all. I will not allow the name calling or rhetoric that normally falls into being. This is strictly something that I want to do for my own understanding of my fellow countrymen.
I want to now THANK all who participate. This blog will be changing to this open style forum. I will, in the days to come start a second with the day to day normal b.s.. I will annouce that blog shortly and hope you all come by. sharky
Without anything more to say, here we go....
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union,
establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common
defense, 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.
EDIT: the comment moderation is lifted for two days (the time given for the post) for ease of open forum and refering into and back to the document being discussed will be allowed for ease of discussion.
