As a ex soldier of this country, I’m often overwhelmed when people thank me for my service. I never really know what to say. I’m no better than the next guy or gal.

To my fellow Brothers & Sisters in Arms, I’m proud to have served with you whether I know you it not, past present and future.

To everyone else, you’re welcome. Thank you for supporting my Brothers & Sisters and I. We ask for nothing in return save only that you honor, live by, and teach others about our founding documents, and the way of life they describe. That is why we served. So others could live freely, safely, and honorably according to the life and rights outlined in those documents.

We have forgotten, as a people, those core values. We allow our politicians to pay lip service tothose values, all while using the powers we gave them to erode those very same.

You want to honor our service? Each and every one of you need to do as we did, minus the weapons and death, and fight tooth and nail to hold Congress and the President responsible and accountable to We the People and the Constitution. Live your own lives according to the same. THAT is how you thank us.

National Petition for a Balanced Budget Amendment

Sponsored by Patriot Voices

To: All members of the 114th United States Congress

I, the undersigned, a lover of liberty, an American patriot, and a concerned citizen, do hereby implore you, our elected representatives, to immediately introduce, vote on, and pass a 28th amendment to the United States Constitution mandating a balanced budget.

A Balanced Budget Amendment would require by law that the federal government not spend more than it takes in and would ultimately cap federal spending at 18% of gross domestic product (GDP).

Because our country can't afford to continue down this unsustainable fiscal course any longer, I urge you to pass this Balanced Budget Amendment before completing the federal budget for the coming fiscal year.

According to my First Amendment right to petition, I expect full compliance with this request, and will hold you accountable and responsible for fulfilling it.

Finally, I do hereby pledge to stand with Rick Santorum, Patriot Voices, and conservative patriots nationwide in support of fiscal sanity, accountability, and a balanced budget.

Hereby signed,
