For all who missed fifth grade, when we learned about our government I say, wake up America. Itís not those elected officials in Washington or Columbia.

Those are our elected officials who are to represent our concerns. We the people are the government. When our representatives say that the government will take care of your needs, what they are really saying is that you will take care of your neighbor and your neighbor will take care of you. They do this by using taxes to pay for all these handouts. Our officials in Washington have a job to do, and that is to keep this great country safe and strong. As per the Bible, itís the churchís job to help all those in need.

So wake up America before itís too late for our children and grandchildren to become what we are losing.
