March on Sept. 25 and demand answers to these questions

To The Daily Sun,

t’s time for the American people to hold our elected officials from both parties at the federal, state and city levels accountable. Like many of you, I am sick and tired of the lies and broken promises our elected officials have given us over the last 50+ years. It’s time we asked the HARD QUESTIONS of our elected official and demand answers.

How is it a member of Congress making $160,000 to over $200,000+ a year becomes multi millionaires during their terms in office? How do you justify pensions for members of Congress.? Congress was never meant to be a career! Members of Congress should not be paid more than our military, who put their life on the line every day to defend America! Why is it Congress doesn’t have to live by the laws they pass for us? Why is it Congress doesn’t have the same health care they require the rest of us to have? Why are you trying to destroying our Constitution? Why do you allow invaders who want to destroy America cross our borders illegally and then, give them benefits that American’s have to work years for? Who gave you the right to give non-citizens the right to vote? Why are you funding sanctuary cities that hide illegal aliens? Why do you give millions of dollars to countries who hate us while our veterans who have served our country are denied health care and are homeless?

I’m sure you have many questions of your own that need to be asked and now is the time for all of us to Stand Up For America! The time for talk is over. We have been talking about what we can do to take back our country, well it’s time we stop talking the talk and start walking the walk. It is time “We the People” take action. I am asking every American regardless of party to stand up for America and take our country back. One way we can make a change is for all American’s in every state to organize a national rally on Monday, Sept. 25 at noon and have a PEACEFUL march in every state capital and demand answers to the above questions and any others you may have. Let our elected officials know we are sick of their lies and WE ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!

If you agree with me please forward this to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email or in your local paper. We need to make this happen in a big way!

God Bless America.

Neither party has tolerance needed to move their ideas forward

To The Daily Sun,

Mr. Meade, in his most recent column, discusses the use of the word God in the process of the Founding Fathers, who both created the Declaration of Independence as well as the U.S. Constitution. However, let's look at this again. The use of the word “Creator” is used, not God. Then the First Amendment was quoted, and again, the word “God” is not used. One must realize the genius of the Founding Fathers to not include this word.

I agree with Mr. Meade regarding the passions of Mr. Demakowski. To insult this man for his beliefs is unacceptable, particularly in the rude manner of Mr. Vervaeke. We all have our beliefs, and that is the purpose of the First Amendment, to protect these religions, ALL of them. Tolerance is a true virtue for all individuals and that is the defining moment for the First Amendment. John D. needs to have tolerance for Alan V. and vice-versa.

Two important attributes of the First Amendment are two things. 1. It provides for the separation of our government from religion. 2. It also protects all people from other religions as well. One must marvel at the creation of the Declaration as well as the Constitution.

The most significant part of the First Amendment is the freedom of speech. This protects both John, Alan, and Mr. Meade; as well as all of us and myself included. However, while peaceful protests are acceptable, violent ones are not. To impact to the negative assault on the general health, safety, and citizens is directly an insult to the First Amendment, rendering the use of violence as unconstitutional. Therefore tolerance is the key word to keep in mind in these discussions in The Daily Sun. It is not just the Christian way, or the Muslim way, or the Jewish way, rather it is the focus on the peaceful aspects of all religions.

The real purpose of conserving and protecting public health, safety, and welfare is the key element in the design of the Constitution and its subsequent amendments. It develops that this protection is dependent on tolerance and acceptance. Yes, while Christianity is probably among the smallest of worldwide religions, it is a major religion in this country. These Christian populations need to understand that tolerance is the basic premise of their faiths. This comes from the teachings of Christ that indicate, “judge not lest ye be judged” concept. In early Christianity, violence was a way to promote their faith. Over time, it must be realized that violence is not the answer. Muslim faiths ascribe to this same principle. The Sharia is no longer the strength of the peaceful Muslims. They also seek peace as well. Other religions such as Buddhism also seek peace and tolerance. Those that promote caste deny this tolerance and hence greater turmoil is present as well as the insult upon the female gender, and those of trans-sexual background.

Recently I changed my party affiliation to that of Independent, as I strongly feel both the major parties are not heeding the tolerance needed to move their ideas forward. I left the Christian Church for the same reason. Openness and tolerance is critical to the development of strong unity in this country. The present administration, in my opinion, goes against all grains of narrow mindedness and promotes the bigotry this country does not need. This administration clearly attacks the the genuine well-being of our country as well as the world, and our climate. It supports the 1 percent that has sucked the remaining 99 percent dry. Our medical system is under attack. People such as myself, are being threatened to worsen our well-being, particularly with potentially life-ending diseases and those suffering from substance abuse addictions. In short, this is an insult to all of us, John, Bob, and Alan included.
Working together, learning the good traits that define the peoples who really care, can truly make it possible for all of us to live together. What we really need, is a president who listens to everyone, not the chosen few. It is time for this change to come.
