I just spent the last 45 minutes contacting the offices of our Congressional Representative, our two Senators and trying to contact the three leading Democratic Candidates to let them know my feelings on the proposed Economic Stimulus Package.

I was able to reach Hillary Clinton's California Campaign office but had no luck reaching the Edwards or Obama Campaigns by Phone. (They should fix their websites.)

The Economic Stimulus Package is a joke. It didn't work last time and it won't work now. If those who are for this ill thought out scheme get their way, all that will happen is that the US will sink deeper into debt.

Most people who receive this "free money" will not go out and buy a new TV or stereo. What they will do is use it to pay off a bill or put it into the bank. It didn't work last time and it won't work now.

This would not be good for our country, nor would it do anything but make some people feel better. Make no mistake, it will only feel better for an instant and then it will hurt like hell!

Americans do not need our leaders to keep pandering to the people with more feel-good legislation. Americans need leaders who will let us know the truth.

Americans need to feel our pain. ...The pain that has resulted by us not paying attention, by us not getting involved as citizens, and by us not stopping our leaders when they lead us astray.

Our country is deeply in debt! We Americans have to accept that and make the corrections needed to become more fiscally prudent.

We are at war! War hurts and War is not free.

Our citizens and thousands upon thousands of Iraqi and Afghani citizens have been killed or seriously and grievously wounded. We can't have our butter and our guns too.

It is time for us to wake up and pay attention!
It is time for us to face our problems as responsible adults.

Pain was created for a reason.
It is time for us to Wake Up.
It is time to feel the pain.
