By Pat Boone Posted: August 22, 2009 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 Here's a personal maxim gleaned from long years of experience, observation and active participation in the politics of our beloved country: In voting and political involvement, we get either what we need – or what we deserve. By that, I mean that if we the people stay informed, stay active and involved, and prayerfully exercise our constitutional power to vote like-minded representatives into government, we can have what we need. If, on the other hand, we become lethargic, apathetic, uninformed (even ignorant) about the issues confronting us; if we choose to "leave it to George" to sort out the best candidates and their positions, their leanings and integrity; if we even fail to vote and otherwise be involved in the electoral process – we will most certainly get what we deserve. We won't like it; we'll rail and complain and ask, "How could this happen?" But we'll be stuck with the consequences of our irresponsibility. Right now, we're getting a big, big dose of what we deserve. [READ ENTIRE COLUMN!]MY NOTE: This is one of Pat Boone's absolute best columns! This is a must read! He's right, we got what we deserve. Well, some of us did... But, I didn't vote for B. Insane Obama. I knew he was a Socialist/Marxist/Communist. I knew about Obama's links to ACORN. I was informed. Just sayin'.... Pat Boone ended this column with the following wisdom:
Just today, I read Proverbs 21:22: "The wise conquer the city of the strong and level the fortress in which they (the strong) trust." From the fortress of the Democrat "strong," we heard a chant we thought was "CHANGE! CHANGE! CHANGE!" Now, as we listen closer, we're recognizing that it's "CHAINS! CHAINS! CHAINS!" If we the people are wise, we'll mobilize and level the fortress – while we can.
