Guess What, Barack? We Have OUR Keys Back!

We, the People…Have the Keys!

Howard Houchen

 

            In early 2010 Barack Obama’s handlers developed an analogy for him to splash about the airwaves and repeat at public appearances (over, and over, and over, and over, and over again).  The analogy was one of Republicans driving a car (the U.S. economy) into a ditch (deep recession) and the Obama Rescue Crew is called in to salvage the car and get it moving along the road to recovery.  As the story goes, the self-proclaimed Master Mechanic Obama and his Pit Crew (the Lackluster-Lackeys), successfully dislodge the car (the U.S. Economy) from the pit of despair (recession) and put it back on track only to have the Republicans ask for the keys back.  Pit-Boss Obama then tells us that “you” can’t have the keys back.  Hmmm…

            It has always been my contention that what THESE folks did to THAT car while it was at its most vulnerable could more readily be described as “vehicular stripping” and that the man in charge should be known as “Chop-Shop Barack” and that THOSE keys were never HIS in the first place.  Guess what?  The election results of Nov. 2, 2010 proved me, and tens of millions of American citizens, RIGHT!  Those keys are OURS and it is you, Chop-Shop Barack, who possesses no authority whatsoever to decide who gets the keys to OUR economy…They belong to We, the People!

            With a mighty heave and a resounding opening salvo, the citizens of these United States of America firmly rejected the policies of a central-planning “Ruling-Class” who incorrectly believed they were the “Keepers of the Keys”.  With this clear and concise action, Washington can no longer mistake our wishes.  Yes, we have our keys…BUT…we must secure them with vigilance and dedication to our stated principles.  We must never again allow citizen non-participation in this great American experiment in self-government to empower those in legislative positions whose philosophies run counter to OUR founding principles.  We ALL must stay engaged and steer OUR course. 

            As citizens, we are the “Keepers of the Keys” and with this comes the responsibility of ensuring our drivers steer a straight course, a course we have set for them.  Any deviation from the course that leads to greater freedoms, less government interference, lower taxes, more economic freedom, and security in our blessing of individual liberty must be met with swift and clear action on our part.  Yes, we have our keys but what we do with them from this point forward will be the defining characteristic of this movement to restore America to the mantle of history’s greatest and lasting achievements.

    This analogy, “Keeper of the Keys” when used in this article, is very true concerning our new currently elected officials. This also holds true with our own physical bodies. We must keep them well-tuned, oiled, in shape, properly fed and occasionally “worked on.” As individuals in our present society, we will find it as necessary to do the same as Mr. Houchen so stated in his article. Vigilance, prevailing vigor and time-consuming tasks will be in order for all citizens as we travel along this road in life.

    I love this piece and will be sharing!

    It is a good thing to have the keys, but a better thing to steer the car in the proper direction. We must make sure that path is in the paved way of the Constitution binding our leaders and constraining inappropriate actions every step of the way.

    Thank you so much for being such a good friend and such a bright light shining the way forward in your district and for all of Oklahoma. We appreciate you~
