Newsletter for Feb 9, 2015
How would you define humanity? In 1789, Alexander Hamilton, in Federalist Paper #6, wrote that in his opinion, humans are ” ambitious, vindictive, and rapacious.”
How do you think Obama, McCrory, Boehner, McConnell, Tillis, or even Clodfelter would define humanity? Given the state of contemporary politics, their consultants would never allow them to take a stand for fear of upsetting various interest groups.
For what it’s worth, I think the men I mentioned, as well at 99% of the other elected officials in national, state, and local elective office in this country are ” ambitious, vindictive, and rapacious.”
They have usurped authority and enslaved us to a degree that would make King George blush. However, the true genius of the system of government our ancestors lovingly left for us is that ultimately, the real political power resides with ” We The People.”
Our system of government can be reformed if enough citizens do the hard work of reformation. This is what CAUTION is about.
Please join us Monday at 6:00 pm at Dilworth Neighborhood Grill. We have decided to impact the illegal immigration problem that is devastating our community. Three committees are being formed to determine the financial and social impact illegal immigrants are having on Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and the Char-Meck Public School System.
Our goal is to make the community aware of this impact, and suggest concrete public policy to improve the situation.
We need members to serve on these committees. Please choose one to serve on, come to the meeting tomorrow night, bring materials to take notes, and resolve in your mind that you are determined to make our community a better place to live.
It is a great honor to have been chosen to direct CAUTION in 2015. There are no finer patriots in the entire USA than our membership. If we do our best, there is no limit to what we can achieve.
God Bless You,
