December 09, 2013 12:00 am

Are you aware of your power to solve our nation’s problems? It involves these ingredients: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, the cartridge box and the confessional box.

You ask, “What should I do?” Start with the confessional. Humble yourself before God, admit your sins, repent and seek guidance before stepping into the other boxes.

Then get on your soap box with an opinion backed by facts and purpose. Learn all you can about the political parties and candidates before casting your ballot.

Be alert and serious when serving on a jury because tyrants depend on corrupt judges and juries to expand their power. Defend your right to have a firearm for personal defense and to protect our constitutional freedoms.

Then give thanks for all the people engaged in the fight for liberty and justice for all.
