56 Brave Souls May Be All We Need

On September 12, 2009 I may have just witnessed the beginning of a new revolution, or the beginning of the end for a political commentator.  Glenn Beck has been talking about corruption for years now and today he called for a symbolic number, 56m of congressmen to come forward and blow the whistle on the corruption in government.  The same number of brave men that signed the Declaration of Independence.

Detractors have been saying for years that Glenn is crazy, along with a slew of more disparaging names.  They may be right about this, but what if they aren’t?  It is their right to be skeptical, it’s what’s great about this country.  You don’t have to risk anything to benefit from anther’s work.  If he is right and his actions lead to something better, then everyone stands to gain, whether they are on the bandwagon or not.

I, on the other hand have a little hope for this.  Every single revolutionary has been criticized by their contemporaries, called crazy, lunatic, and many times much worse.  It was only afterward that people saw them for what they really were.  It’s also not a stretch to say that great change has never come from a politician.  Regular people have always been the faces of change, especially in this country.  If one votes for a person that promises change they are just setting themselves up for disappointment.

I would like to say, years from now, that I was part of that change, instead of just sitting back and benefiting from it.  No one can argue, that if there is corruption in the government, rooting it out would be good for everyone.  I want to be able to tell my son, his kids, and Gods willing my great grandkids that I was on board, that I was part of it.  I would rather admit that I was wrong than have to live with having sat idly by while real patriots refounded this country.  That is what Glenn is calling for.  56 people to re-form this country, to reaffirm our principles, to root out the corruption that has perverted our great Republic.

I am on board.  Whatever I can do I will.  It is time that the good, decent, patriotic majority steer this country back to the right track.  Democrat, Republican, Independent, we all have one thing in common, we are all Americans.  It’s time we started acting like it.
