Happy New Year!!
We have had a great year in some ways and not so great in others. The great silent majority awoke and found its voice. Although it fell on many deaf ears in the halls of Congress, it was deafening at the ballot box in November.
2010 was the year that gave us Obamacare, confirmation of Justice Elena Kagan, Senate ratification of the new START Treaty, repeal of Don’t Ask-Don’t Tell and the Dodd-Frank Finance bill to name just a few of the not so great.
In 2010 “we the people” took a stand and stopped the Dream act, Cap & Trade, Harry Reid’s Omnibus funding bill, the Police and Firefighter Monopoly Bargaining Bill, the Employee Free Choice Act (Card Check) and many others. We took back 63 House seats, 7 Senate seats and 6 Governorships as well as 675 plus seats in state legislatures nationwide.
Now the big question is, what’s next? We have to keep the momentum going until 2012 when we can take another big step in restoring our country by electing more leaders and a president that represent our values and not those of some academic elite or European model. We do that by taking care of some issues we have remained silent on for too long; by going out into our communities and talking up what has happened. It is not just about the lawmakers and judges losing sight of the Constitution, it is about us losing sight of the importance of families and communities, and our religious heritage and how the mores and laws of our modern civilized society has it’s roots in that heritage.
Don’t think for one minute that Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levine and others can get the job done, they can not, because they are preaching to the choir! The liberals have been inoculated against the conservative media and middle America is busy putting bread on the table, getting kids through school, paying taxes, worrying about their jobs and trying to find a little happiness.
Nope….it is up to each and everyone of us to go out and be disciples of liberty, to teach and illuminate our heritage, so that others can appreciate our rich history and understand exactly what has made America so great. Bit by bit our Judeo-Christian heritage is being stripped from the public venue, even though it embodies beliefs that the vast majority of Americans embrace. Our Judeo-Christian heritage is undeniable, that is until the liberals finish stripping and rewriting references in our history books; the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, other founding documents and those produced by Presidents and Congresses for over 200 years; and before they begin removing vestiges of it from our public buildings in Washington DC where one of the richest displays of our Christian heritage exists, on and within nearly all of our important buildings including the Whitehouse, the Supreme Court, the US Capitol, the Senate chambers, the House chambers, the monuments, our money, our motto….yikes, what a kick in the teeth for President Obama to say we are not a Christian nation!
It is through a strong sense of family, community and Country that we may unite and restore those principles and values to the forefront of American’s thinking. We must speak up, we have been silent too long, we have let the liberals have the stage for too long, we have tried to be politically correct (A progressive liberal tool to place the most important principles and values for conservatives on the back burner; out of sight-out of mind; convincing many to go along to get along) for too long! It is time for all conservatives, Christians, Jews and others to drive a stake through the heart of political correctness and take our country back.
Since when does a tiny minority, be they LBGT, Atheist, Agnostic, Marxist, Socialist, Communist or other drive the conscience and public conversation in America? Well, they have been getting away with it for a long time and it is high time the majority stepped up to the plate and started preserving and protecting their way of life! We outnumber them; we are more compassionate than them; we are smarter than them (although not always as vocal), but we must be willing to work harder than them as we have this past year or so!
You can start in your churches, at the veteran’s service organizations, at your local service organizations…yeah, I know, they have to remain neutral, but that goes for the Non-profit organization, not the members! Silence is not golden, at least, when your Country and way of life are at stake! This is a time when we reflect on past years and set priorities for the future, what better time to speak with family, friends and acquaintances about the state of your country and opportunities to re-prioritize and turn our culture around. You don’t want to have your grandchild on your lap someday and find yourself explaining why professing to be Christian/Jewish or American is a bad thing in a new world where secularism and world citizenry is revered!
I don’t know about you but I swell with pride when we start conservative or Republican meetings of any kind with a prayer, the Pledge and the Anthem. And man o’ man when any crowd starts shouting USA…USA…USA what a rush that is!
Americanism, Nationalism call it what you may, we Americans are exceptional and not anything or anybody should stand in the way of us realizing our dreams in our pursuit of life, liberty and happiness for ourselves and future generations. It has been said that only an enemy from within could confront the American spirit and conquer it.
Come on brothers and sisters, fellow patriots let’s make 2011 a year of Renewal and work to restore faith in God, Family and Country, to shine a light on our heritage that there be no mistaking who we are or where we came from. Let us remain with open arms and welcome others as our forefathers have done, but let them that come know, we have accepted them, to join with us in strengthening America and what she stands for, not remaking America in their vision. And to those that have worked against God, the Constitution, the family, American nationalism/exceptionalism and our heritage, let them be known as the “enemy within” and continue working to identify and defeat this enemy.
Shine a light on our roots; they are strong, honorable, compassionate and reverent; nurtured by God. Cling to them as you would your bibles and guns and protect them for posterity!! We are the conscience of America it is time to exercise that conscience!!
Have a Blessed and Happy New Year
