So many people sent pictures to Glenn Beck‘s WeSurroundThem  email request that the server limit was reached in a couple of hours.  People where sending in emails who agreed with at least 7 of the 9 points listed below on Feb. 4th 2009.  

Hmmm. If the email Glenn got was like mine then that was 7291MB of storage used up within hours.  It has taken me 2 years to fill up 1/7th of that space and I have 18000 emails.  18,000 times 7 is 126,000.  Glenn received 126,000 emails in a 2 or three hours. WOW!  Here is what started it all.  It is posted on the Glenn Beck Site today.

Anyway.  We, The Belfort Five, are all in for all 9 of the following points:

So many of us who truly believe in this country, but think common sense is dead, feel alone these days. When one caller said he was ready to unplug because he was so frustrated, Glenn asked him to give him a few weeks to prove that he wasn’t alone. Today, Glenn starts trying to make this idea into a reality. Step one—if you believe in the principles that this country was founded on—please email an individual picture of you–and each member of your family who wants to participate to (you might want to tune into Glenn’s show tomorrow to find out about his work around to the popularity of this WE SURROUND THEM project. If you live in Miami, FL then turn to 610 WIOD (click here for live online) on the AM radio dial at 9AM EST and Glenn will be explaining what happened.

GLENN: So I’m going to just ask you right now just to think of these things and just answer out loud. Just say to yourself yes or no. Yes or no. Is this who I am? Is this what I believe? Because I believe you and I agree on most of these.

1) Yes or no: Do you believe America is a good place, that we’ve lost our way over the years, that we have done bad things but generally speaking we tried hard. We try to make amends. We have tried to do the right thing. Just like everybody else, we fail from time to time and we have truly lost our way in the last 20 years. But gosh, if you look at America, she’s good and our founders were good and our founding documents are good. We’ve just strayed too far away from them. Yes or no.

2) Yes or no: I believe in God. I may not go to the same church or synagogue or mosque as the majority of people in America, but I believe in God and he is the center of my life, and God does not tell people to behead others or to persecute others that see God in a different way. As long as that god is not telling them to persecute others.

Yes or no.

3) Yes or no: It is my responsibility to try to be better and a more honest person than I was yesterday. Sometimes I fail, I’ll make mistakes, but it’s my main mission to be better than I was personally than I was yesterday.

4) Yes or no: The family is sacred. I and my spouse are the ultimate authority under God when it comes to my family. I raise my family, and that comes with a grave responsibility. If I fail, I answer to God.

5) Yes or no: If you break the law, you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

6) Yes or no: I have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but that is not a guarantee of equal results.

7) Yes or no: I work hard for what I have, and I will share it with others that I choose when I choose, should I choose. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8) It is not un-American for anyone to disagree with my opinion, but my opinion or others’ opinions may be anti-American. Anti-American rhetoric would be anything that is destructive to the Constitution and our country as our founders understood it.

9) And the last one is the government works for me. The government answers to me. I do not answer to the government.
