“We the People” have spoken. Not against Democrats or for Republicans, but against a philosophy that trivializes individuality while promoting central power in big government.
We voted against fiscal irresponsibility, and deaf governing.
Against individuals who forgot what the foundation of a free society is.
That all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights. That those rights are not up for compromise, and that with freedom comes accountability, the need for self reliance, social conscience and moral ethics.
For too long our representatives have ignored the lessons of history blinded by an ideology that has failed consistently. Let this be a lesson to our representatives. You are not in Washington on your own right.
You are sent to Washington as a public servant; as a voice for “we the people” — not a pawn for the political parties.
Pedro Jose Diaz, Tempe
