What Politics is, The Preamble

by Shannon Wright

What politics is is a method by which we can communicate our thoughts ideas and issues to those that can turn our collective concerns into that which can benefit us all~

Our great nation was founded by groups of community and self appointed leaders who came together because they were angry and were not going to take it anymore. Well most of us today are angry about something or another. It could be taxes, education , healthcare, or any number of issues that plaque our communities.

How many of you know the words of the preamble to the Constitution? It starts by saying "We the People". It goes on to say: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure 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.

No where in the preamble does it say anything about we do this for the select few. No where in the preamble does it say for those with big check books. No where in the preamble does it say when it is convenient. The preamble says "for ourselves and our posterity", for us and all of us to come. Somewhere along the line we lost that.

I am running for Congress to bring that back. I am running for Congress to represent the people of my district. I am running for Congress to be the voice of reason that makes others in Congress pause for thought about the concerns of the citizens of their own districts. I am running for Congress to bring the voices, issues, and concerns of my district to where they need to be heard.

To get there we need your help. If you believe in preserving life, if you believe in lower taxes, if you believe in responsible healthcare, if you believe in education reform, or if you believe in what our great nation was created to be please help us reach our goal of raising $50,000 in 50 hours.

Please go to our website and donate what you can, but please don't stop there share this with all of your friends and ask then to donate and share with their friends. Together all of us everyday citizens can let the few in the back rooms know we will not go away and we will be heard!
