The Little Guy

December 27, 2011

Americans defend the little guy. In fact, we’re a nation of little guys. Somehow that fact has been lost. Our elected officials trade their offices for lucre, assuming we are blind to the process.

America has one of the few democracies in history. Patriots died for the principles on which this nation was built:  freedom and equality. To the vast majority of us – the little guys of every color and stripe – those words still mean something. We put them into practice every day.

Oh, we’re imperfect. We bicker among ourselves over how best this experiment in self-government is to be worked out. But we manage to live together. That’s what America is all about.

If those in power no longer recognize the vital role they play on our behalf, if they’ve cheapened those principles the rest of cherish, America is in grave danger.
