With the busy, tumultuous and often whacky year of 2011 about to be relegated to the history books, it is time to ring in 2012. Beginning January 1, we patriots must busy ourselves with making sure it is a year that sets our beloved country back on a course where freedom and prosperity can once again thrive. With that in mind here are my "Patriot Resolutions for 2012" which I believe can help me do my part in putting shoe leather to that goal. I invite you to join me in so resolving.
- The by-laws of MCP read, in part, "Our purpose is to promote the original intent of the Constitution in government at all levels. Our members work to educate voters on the original intent of the Constitution,... " If we are to be able to educate others we must first be educated ourselves. Therefore, I resolve to better equip myself to do so by reading from the Bible, and/or The Declaration of Independence, and/or The Constitution, and/or other relevant resources, daily.
- I don't believe that politics is the answer. It is most of the problem. It is important, however, and since 2012 is an election year, it behooves us to be involved in the process. Therefore, I resolve to work individually and through MCP and/or with other like-minded groups and individuals to help elect candidates who revere the Constitution and consider it authoritative and/or to defeat those who do not; and to do the same with regard to ballot initiatives.
