But this is the time and this is the place
And these are the signs that we must embrace
The moment is now, in all history
The time has arrived and this is the one place to be

It is often said the President of the United States is the most powerful person in the world. It is the most powerful office to be sure. Sorry Pope, sorry assorted Dictators, sorry Secretary General of the United Nations, you all lose. Like it or not, the Chief Executive of our nation wields the mightiest sword on our planet; economically, militarily, morally, diplomatically. The reality is that the world follows our lead. Being a citizen of this great land is not to be taken lightly. Our Republic is goverened by a Constitution that lays out the truth of the matter. “We the People” are in control. We are no different than the men who declared Independence in 1776: “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” The President is the servant and representative of the People, of YOU. You are the power behind the power – you hold all the cards. You choose the direction our nation, and thereby the world, takes. The individual American voter is the most powerful person not only in the world today, but in the history of the world.

We don’t just elect a President, we by extension choose all the people in his/her Cabinet and every Supreme Court Justice appointed in their term. Therefore we choose ALL of the policies the Executive enacts (monetary, energy, foreign policy and everything else) as well as the makeup of the Supreme Court. We are also responsible for that choice. 2012 will be the toughest, and likely dirtiest, election process we have ever seen in our lifetimes. Next week we begin to Speak. If you are not involved in the Primary process, shame on you. You cannot complain about the quality of a candidate unless you partake in choosing him/her. Unless you are running for office yourself, it behoves you to Speak.

The Power of the free individual will begin to be bestowed Jan 3. If you care about the future direction of your country (and therefore the world), and you reject the progressive socialist direction of Barack Obama , and also reject the “fait accompli” of his opponent already being chosen for you (the enigma known as Mitt Romney), it is time to Rise. Gird up with the Full Armor and prepare to be assaulted from every side, but know that the Power is in your hands. Don’t waste it.
