What political issue affects you the most? Is it the government takeover of your healthcare? Could it be the failing economy or the government indoctrination of your children in our schools? Is it the fact that the government is running a corrupt I.R.S., taking tax-payer’s money to fund even more corruption? Perhaps it is the fact that our current president and his minions have made a mockery out of the United States of America on the world stage with an absolutely abhorrent foreign policy? Could the most important issue be the fact that our precious Veterans have been abused and ignored by a government-run system that, also, is wrought with graft and corruption? Maybe the biggest issue is the fact that our nation has been invaded by throngs of people who come here illegally (by their very presence on our soil, they are breaking our laws; they are criminals!)? Is the most important issue the eradication of our privacy? What about the issue of gun control? What about the creeping masses of Islam who want to turn our nation over to Sharia Law? What about the social deviants and miscreants who demand that we all accept their alternative lifestyles as normal? And, what about the culture of people who refuse to work for a living, yet demand that hard-working, tax-paying citizens furnish everything they want? Is the growing persecution of the Christian Church an issue for you? Or, maybe it is the politicians who want to repeal the 1st Amendment of the Constitution? What does the growing divide between genders, generations and races mean to you? These are just a few of the issues we face; there are many more.
Every issue is important! None of these issues should be ignored. We, as Citizens of this country should be informed on all issues and we should be engaged with others on a regular basis. These are not just national, state or local issues. These are also work, church, neighborhood and Family issues. Every Citizen in this country is affected by everything that goes on in Washington, D.C, in our own State Legislatures, County Commissions, City Council, School Board and every other entity that is supposed to be manned by We the People. This country was not designed to be managed by a hierarchy of professional politicians! This country was designed to be run by the Citizens. The Constitution is the Law of our Land, written and ratified to protect the People from an overwhelming and overpowering government. The Constitution protects the Rights of the People by hindering government’s reach into our lives. And, we have allowed the socialist parasite to come in and suck the life out of our Constitution and the freedom out of our Nation. Shame on all of us!
While Conservatives bicker amongst ourselves over every aspect of the political war we are fighting, liberals are pushing the socialist agenda with ease. Perhaps Conservatives should stop getting caught up in the symbolism over substance idiocy and straighten up! You can shout cute, little Conservative “sayings” until you are blue in the face. You can get Moan Labe, Tea Party or Patriot Pride tattooed on your forehead; it doesn’t matter one bit in the big picture if you are unwilling to step out of your comfort zone and make an actual difference in this fight against socialism. We need to stop worrying about what the Republican Party elitists do and say (they are nothing more than Democrats, anyway) and start returning the Republican Party to the Conservative base. When the Party Elite moves in and pushes a liberal Republican in a Primary, and the Conservative candidate loses; learn from it! When a Conservative candidate wins against the Party Elite’s choice; learn from it! We are not going to get every candidate that we want and we need to dispense with the childish pity party every time we don’t get our way in an election. My point is this: If we sit around and whine and cry that the candidate that the voters just elected is not what we wanted, the socialists win. Citizens need to be reminded often, this is not a Democracy it is a Representative Republic. We the People have a duty to make sure those we elect to political office represent us. Too many people get excited and active for a few months leading up to an election, cast their vote and then go right back to ignoring what the politicians do. It is up to us to hold their feet in the fire! It is up to us to make sure they do exactly what we want them to do. THEY work for US!
The silliness and outright idiocy that people display during an election is sickening. There are coffee shop brain surgeons everywhere. They know more than God about all things and they have no problem letting you know how smart they are. There are pundits who claim that they have all the answers to America’s problems, and we can fix everything with some lame-brained “five point plan”. The truth is simple; no one has all the answers! We must learn from history and the mistakes we’ve made. We must return to, defend and protect the Constitution. We must get over our petty differences and get real about fighting the socialist parasite or we will lose our freedom forever. If we let the government continue to grow and allow the overwhelming bureaucracy to suck the very life out of America, then the next generation will have to explain to their children why rooting for a favorite sports team or going to a movie was so much more important than preserving freedom.
Dear Reader, please forgive me for sharing my anger in this post. My purpose in this fight is to support and encourage my fellow Conservatives, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to do so, because Conservatives have been acting like a bunch of kindergarten brats. Our freedom depends on us, and if we are too busy pulling each other’s hair out and calling each other names, we can kiss it all good-bye. So! Are the issues important to you? Are you going to do your best to get informed and share what you learn with those around you? Are you going to stand up and speak up against tyranny? Or are you going to wallow in self, and choose oppression by default?
