Our nation has reached a crossroads. 2010 may turn out to be the most decisive year in our nation’s history. I truly am trying to think of ways to help our nation survive. Survive! I know that we have it in us, you and I, and we can do it.
That being said, we have huge hurdles to get over. Not just the current administration.
As conservative, honest and right living people, we see the best in most people.
Sometimes it is in our friends, or in people that we refer to as friends, when they truly may not be. I myself, in the past, have been very guilty of this very thing. I let people that I knew, and that I liked frankly, into my life, that I knew, inside, I should not have ever let in. They were users, thieves, reprobates, liars and cheats. But, I liked them enough to over look those short comings in them. I always suffered the consequences for allowing myself to be around them. I moved on and anytime I have occasion to see or speak to them, I now have a barrier up between the two of us. Works better this way. As the Bible in 2 Peter 2:22 so succinctly says,’ “Dogs return to their own vomit. Let them, but don’t let them lick you.
I know that a large portion of us, even years after we have moved on with our lives, still get disappointed, angry and upset when our ex spouses continue to do the things that we couldn’t put up with before. We think to ourselves, “why can’t they do this and that,” or “why do they act like that.” That is who they are. Dogs bark and lick themselves, because they can. Accept them as they are, and they won’t disappoint or hurt you anymore.
Sometimes though, and I feel that we are at this point with all politicians, Democrat or Republican, that we somehow just can’t really accept the way things are. I hear it all day long on talk radio. I see at night while watching Sean and Glenn and also in conversation with others. Things like, “don’t they know this is bad?” or “where is the transparency they promised?” and “how is this going to give me free health care,” We still seem to have a problem seeing what is happening to the world around us. We want them to stop being what they are. But they are what they are.
If this were a different place and time. If we didn’t have the staggering troubles that we do. If B. Hussein Obama wasn’t a leftist gorilla subverting our nation, I might feel differently than I do right now. At this point, I may loss some or all of you, as my e-mail and blog friends. But, as a completely fed up, conservative, tea party member, Don’t Tread On Me Flag owning, throw them all out, kind of person, I need to be frank with you in what I know could be the death of our republic.
As a case in point, I agree with Glenn Beck 99.99999% of the time. But, and I think this is a big but, Democrats and Republicans, for the most part are not “all just a like.” Granted, there are way too many Repub’s that have strayed from conservative values, been RINO’s (, Sen’s Snowe-ME, Collins-ME, Hutchison-TX, McCain-AZ), been thieves, been perverts, the list goes on and on. But, there are many in offices that completely agree with you and me.
The same can not be said about Democrats. They are all, regardless of whether they are blue dogs or not, party line carrying liberals. They all vote against our conservative issues, unless they already have enough votes to pass their liberal agenda. When they already own the vote, some hide behind a “going rogue” (Sorry Sarah, not you, still love you) non-party vote to try and fool some of the people all of the time. Even when they run as independents, (Joe Lieberman-CT) they are still left wing liberals and vote that way. Democrats and I must call them out here, so called moderate undecided, always vote democrat, even if they don’t like their candidate.
My point is this; the independent direction is a losing direction in national elections. There, I said it. New York 23rd, Ross Perot are just two examples. Now, please, “can I finish, can I finish” as Ross used to say. I loved Hoffman in the 23rd and know that he should have been the Republican candidate instead of that thing that the establishment put in as candidate. But, he lost.
We need to work in the local levels in the Republican Party. I know it will be a fight. But it will be easier to reform the GOP than replace them. We need to get closed primary’s to keep out Democrats and independents from choosing our Republican candidate. Remember John McCain, how the hell did that happen? My mouth still gets dry and my hands still shake just thinking about having voted for him (loved Sarah though) against Obama.
I kick myself every time Barry comes on the television with his teleprompter. I didn’t get involved. I didn’t get out there and campaign for someone that I wanted. Oh, I voted, but to tell you the truth, the most I ever did was contribute to the GOP and put up a sign in my yard. Well whooptie doo.
From this point forward, as long as we have a republic and I am alive, I am going to be involved.
We can still get our people into office using the Republican Party as OUR footstool. “All politics is local” it was once said and is still true. We take control of the party by letting them know how we feel, what we want and how we are going to vote. REMEMBER, WITHOUT US, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS DEAD. They need us. Well, we need their platform. I feel the momentum is going in our direction within the GOP. Let’s grab hold of it and make it our own.
The facts of life are this. We can not cut off our noses to spite our faces. We just can not spend our precious vote this time to teach the Republicans a lesson. Right now, we can not start up a complete new party and be successful in saving our republic. The Maoist’s on the left have too much power right now. With the voter fraud and attempts to steal elections that the Democratic Party engages in, we have to have our candidates so far ahead that it is almost impossible for them to steal it. Because, believe me, they are going to try, every time, in every election, to steal your freedom.
I hope I don’t get too many “take me off your e-mail list” e-mails from you all out there. We are still in this together and we need all of us fighting together. “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately”, Ben Franklin, at the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
This administration and Congress, along with their sycophants in the bureaucracies throughout Washington and our nation have set us upon a course of disaster. The system will have to be cleansed from the bottom up and the top down at the same time. To quoin a phrase, a “fundamental transformation of America” is what is needed. Fundamental transformation back to the freedoms and the way of life that you and I love, and that we want for our children and grandchildren.
As the days go by, we all get caught up in their agenda’s. Whether it is the healthcare debate, airport security, too many or not enough troops, we get wrapped up in their spin. We fight them on their own ground. It keeps us from focusing on what they are really up to. We yell and scream and they call us Nazi’s. But in doing battle this way, we are losing.
Behind the scenes, they are stealing our country out from under us. We will get them in the elections! Really, will we? 50% of all Americans get all of their income, including housing, healthcare (already), food and everything else from government handouts. These people either by necessity or because they are lazy like being slaves to this government. It works for them. They don’t want it to change. THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO VOTE!!!
They are not about to vote for a party or movement that wants them to go to work for a living. They are not about to vote for something that allows people to succeed on their own. They haven’t, and they won’t. So, they want you to be kept on their level because that is what is FAIR. You make an A, they make an F, and everybody gets a C to make it fair. Redistributive change. How’s that working for us now?
Behind the scenes, Frank, Schumer, Dodd, Pelosi, Reid, Axelrod, Emmanuel and Van Jones’ choice for President, are taking every chance for fair elections away from us. Universal Voter Registration? In every election, they have been cheating till they get elected. Al Gore kept recounting votes in precincts that he had already won because he knew there were more registered that votes counted. If it hadn’t been for an honest Attn. General in Florida, we would have had President Al Gore to fight for us on 911. We have Al Franken as Senator because there is an ACORN person as Atty. General in Minnesota. They just kept recounting and low and behold, they find more ballots in the trunk of a car. And strangely enough, most were for Franken.
In the next year, they will try and cover the tracks. Much in the same manner as a cat does in their litter box, and with the same thing to cover as a matter of fact. We will have to fight them on Illegal amnesty, we will have to fight Frank and Schumer as they try to take over all financial transactions, (they are working on it now) public and private, including your checking accounts and loans. They are going to smear us as racists. Let them. They are barking dogs. Nothing more, perhaps less, like what the cats cover.
Let me leave you with a sampling of another master piece by our Founding Fathers. Please find and read the complete document again. I have, as you can see, for brevities sake only of course, printed what I could fit in here.
IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes…But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security…such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present … is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
He has refused his Assent to Laws…
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant …, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws…
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America… appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name… declare, That these… ought to be Free and Independent States… — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
