Grab Your Buckets - Please!!!

By RoseAnn Salanitri

Lately, I find myself saying to friends, neighbors, and just about anyone who will listen that I feel like I’m in the middle of a forest with brush fires erupting all around me and I only have one bucket of water. When one surveys the political forest fires that have been ignited by this administration, only having one bucket of water can be a frightening thing. Below are a few examples of what I'm talking about:

• Offering jobs to political candidates in exchange for their
dropping out of their races – an impeachable offense
• Dept. of Justice dropping a slam-dunk lawsuit against Black Panthers for voter intimidation in Philadelphia
• Dept. of Justice suing Arizona for implemening state law patterned after Federal law in an effort to protect its citizens
• Bank bailouts
• Tarp funds
• Automobile bailouts/takeover
• Stimulus money being sent to foreign countries
• Government seeking to control the internet
• The Fairness Doctrine
• Financial Reform Bill that gives government access to your personal bank account and finances
• The Gulf Oil Crisis/debacle
• Health care
• Cap & Trade
• NASA prime directive to reach out to the Muslim people to acknowledge their scientific achievements
• Illegal Alien invasion
• Government compiling illegal lists about citizens against health care
• Government protecting the rights of Al Qaeda terrorists
• Congress passing bills without votes “deeming” them passed
• Congress locking out minority parties from discussions
• Illegal aliens being given monies for college tuition and housing credits
• Parental rights being usurped by public schools (schools arranging for abortions for under-aged students without parental notification or consent)
• Constant assault against second amendment right to bear arms

Had enough? If your head is spinning and wondering how we can possibly put out all of these fires, there is an answer. We cannot fight on all these fronts successfully so let’s fight in a way that counts. As hard as it may be, we have to stop being distracted by the forest fires this administration is setting all around us and concentrate on throwing our buckets of water at a strategic target. We can tie the hands of the administration by replacing Congress. That should be our only goal throughout this summer. If we don’t win this battle, all may be lost. We can clean up the mess later but first we have to concentrate on saving our country and protecting our Constitution.

Here in New Jersey we can start putting out this fire by recalling Senator Menendez. Removing him from office would be a significant step in the right direction for two reasons: 1. NJ can set the precedent for other states to do the same and we can change the makeup of Congress. There are presently nine states that have recall laws written into their state constitutions; 2. It will send a message loud and clear to the rest of our elected officials that we are watching what they are doing, intend to keep them accountable, and will no longer tolerate crimes against our Constitution. It is crucial that we succeed. The future of our country is literally depending upon us.

FYI, New Jersey, along with Louisiana, Colorado, and North Dakota are founding members of a nationwide coalition (Right 2 Recall USA) that intends to lead the charge to restore our system of government as it was originally designed. We are convinced that this initiative can bear the fruit of change this country needs – change that will lead us in the right direction back onto the path of freedom and protected liberties. We can do this because we are still a government by the people, for the people, and of the people – and it is our job to make sure it stays that way!
