Depart I Say

Share

I awoke this morning thinking about the serious problems confronting our nation today, from the wars in Afghanistan and again in Iraq, nuclear weapons in Iran, terrorism threats home and abroad, the economy, the deficit, unemployment to the continuing debate on health care.

I stopped, and paused for a moment, and considered the actions taken, and frankly, the actions not taken, by the members of the House and Senate of the United States over the last year, and realized that one can only repeat the demand made in 1940 to Neville Chamberlain from a member of the English Parliament quoting Oliver Cromwell: “You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing.  Depart, I say, and let us have done with you.  In the name of God, go!”.

  1. Agreed! I am lifted up by the underground surge of rising consciousness that will ultimately have its say. I no longer put any stock in what goes on in our government as I am pretty sure in the end they will not be the ones to save us. More and more I turn off the news and turn to the resources available elsewhere instead.
