Free societies only remain free when the people hold leaders accountable. This is what the "tea party movement' is attempting to do.
American society can be restored by political activism and change of leadership. This past November demonstrated the "power of the people". It is only when leaders know that their power is only "entrusted" to them by the voters that they will maintain a stance of humility in the place of power. But, if political leaders ever get to the point where they do not fear the people, do not hear the people and their voice, and do not care to "serve" their nation's interests in the place of power, then the nation and its people will suffer.
Americans must remain diligent and awake as to their country's interests and attempt to make a difference in any way they can.
The Constitution must be upheld so that our country will be "ordered" by the "rule of law" and not people who vie for political power irregardless of proper procedure.
