Feet to the Fire

The Freedom Index Thomas Jefferson said,”The price of freedom is eternal vigilance”. If we want to keep our country free and independent we have to be vigilant. Vigilant of what our legislators vote on. We have to hold our legislators accountable for their actions. Monitor their votes. If they vote for any piece of legislation contrary to the United States Constitution, they have broken their oath of office and should be held accountable. We can remove them from office by recruiting someone who stands for the Constitution of the United States to run against the legislator who violated his oath. A good resource towards assessing a Congressman’s or U.S. Senator’s voting record is The Freedom Index published twice a year by The New American magazine. It grades our congressman and senators from 0-100%, 100% being constitutionally right. Be ever vigilant. Our Future, our children’s future and their children’s futures are at stake. Do not say to your self, someones else will be vigilant, most likely they won’t. If we lose our freedoms, because we did nothing, we only have to look at a mirror to see who was responsible. Edmund Burke said,“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
