“We the People have had enough”

“We the People” is the beginning of the Preamble to the United States Constitution. “We the People have had enough” is a saying that has been printed on many images.
 
“Walter Lippmann believes that the Wisconsin primary goes to show that ‘we, the people’ have had enough of politicians” was printed in the Boston (MA) Daily Globe on April 15, 1948. “We, the people, have had enough of crawfishing and protesting in Washington” was printed in the Florence (SC) Morning News on October 21, 1960. “We, the people have had enough of taxes and politicians” was printed in The Times Herald (Port Huron, MI) on February 12, 1981.
 
The saying became popular with the Tea Party movement in 2009. “check out http://www.thefreedomteaparty.com!! ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ have had ENOUGH!!” was posted on X/Twitter by Jack Kuchenbrod on February 26, 2009. “fave signs at the tea party- We the people have had enough” was posted on X/Twitter by annahope on April 15, 2009. “The tea parties show that we the people have had enough” was printed in the Press Enterprise (Bloomsburg, PA) on April 22, 2019. “We The People Have Had Enough Bumper Sticker” was posted on X/Twitter by Zazzle Meme Maker on July 19, 2009.
 
   
Wikipedia:  Preamble to the United States Constitution
The Preamble to the United States Constitution, beginning with the words We the People, is a brief introductory statement of the US Constitution’s fundamental purposes and guiding principles. Courts have referred to it as reliable evidence of the Founding Fathers’ intentions regarding the Constitution’s meaning and what they hoped the Constitution would achieve.

Reality ? Why are the people having to force congress to accept term limits ?
Why do we have term limits for the president but not the congress or senate ?
Why are congress members granted free mailing rights ? Why has it taken a major
voter revolt to start to clean the house ? Why has one party controlled con-
grees for over 30 years ? We the people have had enough.

If you enjoy internet freedom, low interest rates, and a thriving economy then read further. If not, then vote against these things.
 
This November will hold the most critical election in modern times when it comes to our freedom. The Republican party is trying again to trick the American people into voting against freedom. They are leading the blind like sheep to slaughter! They will stop at nothing in their attempt to gain control of our country. When they don’t get their way they stoop to lower and lower tactics, remember when they shut down our government? They openly disregard the people’s opinions and could care less about our prosperous economy or world image. Their only goal is to gain total control so that they can further take away our rights and freedoms! DO NOT BE FOOLED!!! It is a guarantee that interest rates will rise as well as freedoms be lost if they get their way. It is time for the people of this country to take a stand and send a clear message to the Republican Party. We the People have had enough!!!

Yes “We the PEOPLE” have had enough. I don’t think the federal government especially the bureaucracy knows what is fixing to hit them at all. They are so out of touch and just refuse to listen.
