Be Careful What You Ask For

Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers wants to know if you're ready to speak out. In an article yesterday, she expresses her concern for us being able to keep our great republic.

We owe it to our children and grandchildren to stop these spending policies that weaken our economy at the expense of China and other powers. We cannot let this problem fester any longer. Action must be taken before the problem becomes unmanageable.

Every day, our survival is threatened by radical Islamic terrorists whose aim is to kill innocent men, women, and children, even at the cost of their own lives.

Vital American institutions — from our schools to our banks to our hospitals — are being threatened by more federal control and interference.

Our families are being harmed by an erosion of traditional values.

Our entire culture is under siege from a “just do it” mentality that leaves no room for sacrifice, service, or patriotism.

The spirit of September 12, 2001 — the feeling that we are one people united by our love of one country — has been lost but not forgotten.

Personally, I believe there is nothing wrong with the American government that can’t be cured by the wisdom of the American people.

So let's have a look at that wisdom. In the category of "Terrorism Abroad" these are the ideas that have received the highest number of votes:

In the category of "Life":

In the category of "Defense/Military":

In the category of "Ethics":

Welcome to the Internet. All this and more is on America Speaking Out and it is paid for with your tax dollars. Which leads to a couple of related submissions in the "Waste" category.

Hmmm, you just might work.
