Dear Governor Perry…

Dear Governor Rick Perry,

(With regards to your family, friends, those who work on your campaign and to those who support your candidacy)

There are many things I would like to say to you, Governor. The reasons I am such a staunch supporter of your candidacy for President of the United States of America are abundant. It is my firm belief that you are the best man for the job. That said, as Christians we know that God chooses our leaders for His own purposes.  Governor, it is my sincerest prayer that He has already chosen you to be our President.

With all of the rhetoric and other garbage being thrown at you and your supporters in this messy campaign, I would like to offer you some Scripture that may help build confidence:

“Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.

Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret – it leads only to evil. For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found. But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace.

The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for He knows their day is coming.”

(Psalm 37:1-13 NIV)

Governor Perry, this Christian/Conservative Patriot’s voice will not be silenced! I am committed to pray for you daily, as I pray for God to restore America to excellence. May God bless you, Sir, with wisdom to know what to do, strength to do it and courage to see it through.




What Do You Expect?

In the past few weeks there has been a groundswell of anger among many who call themselves ‘Conservatives’.  Some good old-fashioned righteous indignation toward the liberal/socialist parasite would be in order. But, there are ‘Conservatives’ trying to tear other ‘Conservatives’ apart over the silliest of things. Meanwhile, the liberal/socialist parasite is feasting.

It does not take a genius to know that if Conservatives continue to wallow in the muck and fight each other, we will end up with another president who hates America. A simple study of history shows us that ignorant people are easy to incite, and while they writhe in their own prideful, idiotic rage they refuse to see that they are being manipulated and played. Do we want a Presidential candidate that incites anger? Or do we want a candidate that provokes a resolve to maintain Freedom? Do we want to push for someone who is all talk and no action? Or do we want to elect someone who has the ability to do the job that real Conservatives expect from a Leader?

Real Conservatism is about Liberty! It is about America being strong militarily and economically; it is about having secure borders and a strong handle on crime; it is about allowing Citizens the Freedom to work, grow and thrive; it is about the Constitution and the rights that we are guaranteed being protected and respected by our President, Congress, Courts and the Citizenry. The political operators at the top have tried their best to ruin Conservatism in order that they may retain power.  It is high time that We the People get real and remind them that they work for us! We need to fire the politicians who put themselves and the party first and the People last. We need to support and encourage candidates from local dog-catcher on up to President who will do our bidding. The GOP does not have the best interests of the Conservative base in mind; they only have their own agenda, and they are willing to destroy real Conservatives in order to achieve their goal – power that allows them to feast along with the liberal/socialist parasite.  If you donate money, please consider donating to your candidates of choice, because any money you donate to the GOP will only go to push some lily-livered, liberal-minded loser.  If we let the GOP manipulate the ignorant, angry masses through questionable polls and media hype, we can expect nothing more than some well-known political hack to be our candidate.  If that happens, our expectation of Freedom will be gone.

Every election cycle is the most important in America’s history, because every election can either make or break our Nation. We the People expect our elected politicians to do what they are supposed to do to keep our Liberty safe. In our complacency, we have failed to do our job to work together and make sure our employees in the government keep the oath they make when they take office.  What do you expect? Do you expect great things to happen in America? Then, perhaps, it would be a good idea to stop acting like the ignorant masses that fawn and faint over ‘celebrity’ candidates who have absolutely no idea how to run a nation.  It is time to get serious about the issues and start depriving the liberal/socialist parasite of the sustenance it devours from our Freedom.



A Destination of Excellence

The first debate of Republican candidates is over and the race is in full swing. A lot of people paid attention to the debate and the ensuing antics thereafter. People have formed opinions of the candidates based on their answers to the questions and their reactions to each other. But, have people really taken the time to study those candidates? Or have they just decided to support their candidates based on sound bites and a skewed Twitter feed?  In 2008 and again in 2012 I was forced to vote for the lesser of two evils, both of which lost because the GOP has the insane idea that the candidate should not represent true Conservatism. By the time the next President of the United States of America is inaugurated, we will have had a full 8 years of absolute chaos in this country. Our current President wanted to fundamentally change America, and through his actions he has succeeded to destroy as much of America as he possibly can.  He has managed to feed the liberal/socialist parasite our freedoms, one by one, and has driven America frighteningly close to Tyranny.  This has to stop! And it must stop with the 2016 election.

Our next President must be willing and able to do many things in order to repair the damage done and move America back on track to Excellence. There are many issues to deal with, but for today I have chosen five: The Military, Economy, Education, Healthcare and Immigration. Our next President must be willing to rebuild our Military, lead the men and women of the United States Armed Forces against our enemies and make sure our Veterans are properly cared for.  Our next President must be able to cut government spending, support business and put in place policies that grow the economy, not kill it. Our next President must turn primary education over to the States and allow for competition that will encourage a stronger educational system where students learn the basics that will get them through life. Our next President must be willing to repeal the Affordable Care Act and return Healthcare into the hands of Doctors and Patients – government, lawyers and Insurance companies have ruined our healthcare system. And, our next President must be willing to secure our Borders, remove criminal aliens from our soil and put in place solid policies that will stop the invasion.  I will address many other issues in the coming months, but these five are on the top of the list.

When the election results came in back in 2008 and again in 2012, I was sickened. The Citizens of this country twice elected a president who wants to destroy the Constitution and turn America into a Third-World nation. The GOP has pushed spineless moderates into the arena and Conservatives have been left behind.  People are scared and they are angry – with good reason! We are losing more of our precious Freedom every day. This is why Conservatives must stop behaving like 5 year-old girls fighting over a doll and get real! America is in dire straits, this is no time for experiments; we need a President with a strong track record of leadership and ability. It takes a whole team to win a game; not everybody on the field can be the team captain – the pitcher or the quarterback can lead the team, but they cannot win on their own. We need strong leadership in the Senate and the House of Representatives, as well as the White House. We need men and women who are willing to put their egos aside and work in the trenches on Capitol Hill in order to fight the liberal/socialist parasite in all areas of government. And, we need Citizens who are willing to get over themselves and work together to make it happen.

Donald Trump is a good businessman and is certainly a showman, but I do not believe he would be a good President. Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul are all great Senators, and I wish they would take their jobs seriously enough to stay put and bring Conservative leadership to the Senate. Carly Fiorina is extremely intelligent and I have no doubt that she should have a place in the Administration; just not the Presidency. Dr. Ben Carson is intelligent and has some great ideas, but perhaps he would be better suited to running the Department of Health and Human Services than the Armed Services. Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and most of the others are nothing more than political hacks out to show how important they think they are. The GOP is notorious for manipulating throughout the primaries in order to push a candidate that will only lose in the general election. If we are to have a Conservative President that will, once again, push American Excellence then We the People must get it together, support and encourage the candidate that can do it.

This is my blog, I answer to no one, so I can advocate for my candidate of choice. This Patriot is endorsing Governor Rick Perry! Over the course of the next few months, I will be sharing my reasons with you. In my opinion Governor Perry’s proven record of ability and leadership, what he has already done, what he is willing to do and his extraordinary optimism give me hope. For those of you who have chosen another candidate, I invite you to pay attention to what Rick Perry has done and really listen to what he says. Rick Perry has a vision for America and he knows how to bring it to fruition; he believes in American Exceptionalism, he believes in the Constitution and he will ensure Freedom for future generations. While some of the other candidates talk about the things they will do, Rick Perry talks about the things he has already done and how he can take that experience to the next level.

We have choices to make, and we must make them wisely. If Conservatives get together and fight the liberal/socialist parasite we can turn this country around and reach a destination of excellence. Or, we can let it go down in the flames of Tyranny.

What will it be?

It Means Something

We live in a disposable era. Everything from plastic forks and paper plates to telephones and ice boxes are designed to wear out and be replaced. We spend multiples of billions of dollars each year replacing stuff that cannot be fixed. No, this post is not about recycling or some other such greenie thing. I would like to open your eyes to the most destructive disposable aspect of our current time: Words. Words really do have meaning, and it seems that there is a large segment of our culture that does not understand that.

When I was a kid, we had a saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” It is true! Yet, we have this undulating narrative being pushed by the liberal/socialist parasite that every word spoken in truth must be silenced for the sake of not offending anyone. For crying out loud! Everyone is going to be offended at some point in their lives, but we have become so completely overwhelmed by the wave of political correctness that truth has become taboo. Yet, when a leftist spews forth a river of deceptive filth and hate in the name of tolerance and offends everybody within earshot, it’s all okay? They want to re-write history, take away the right to bake a cake for whomever you want to bake a cake for, dig up the bodies of the past and blemish every known symbol of anything that may or may not stand for something they disagree with.

Christian/Conservatives are not supposed to be offended when homosexuals spray hateful graffiti on Church signs. We are not supposed to be offended when the Flag of the United States of America is burned or defiled in some other perverted way. We are supposed to be quiet when a flag that represents the pride of a people who make up a huge part of our population is maligned. We are supposed to just look the other way when simple symbols of things that we hold dear are used to promote division in our country. The list goes on. We are supposed to just give in to every deviant whim the liberal/socialist parasite throws at us. And if we are offended, they might give us a weak-kneed apology that we must accept, because after all, they said, “sorry”.  The brats that have taken over our country can do or say anything and get away with it. If they cause damage or pain, all they have to do is say the magic word sorry and that is supposed to make everything okay.

Bull puckies!

If we don’t start standing up and speaking up for our Christian/Conservative values, we are going to lose everything that our Founding Fathers and every member of the United States Armed Services since the beginning of our Nation has fought for.  When we recognize malice, graft and every other form of corruption, we must call attention to it. When a politician lies and we know it, we must research the statements and bring it into the light. When citizens are bullied and sued for their belief in God, we must be a force for what is right. If those who ooze the slime of the liberal/socialist parasite want to take away our rights as Citizens under the Constitution of the United States of America, we must get real! We must stand up for our Rights! If we allow them to eradicate our Just Laws because they are offended by our Christian/Conservative values, then we become a nation of slaves; slaves to evil and bureaucracy.

We cannot rely on the media to tell the truth. Most mainstream media outlets are absolutely unashamed of the way they push the liberal/socialist agenda. The thing they do not realize is this: Words that carry Truth are not disposable. Lies that are perpetuated will eventually be thrown away and replaced with more lies that lead to the destruction of everything we hold dear. Common sense is rare in today’s world. Very few people seem to be able to understand that if we don’t put an end to the constant barrage of lawsuits against bakers, celebrities pretending to be climate experts, deviants defiling our history and our landmarks and politicians who cause division between races, genders and generations we are going to lose our precious freedom. Sadly, the liberal/socialist parasite does not realize that when the rights of Christians and Conservatives get taken away, all rights for everybody will be taken away. Is our Freedom disposable? No. Freedom is a word that means something, but in order to maintain it, we must actively fight for it. Complacency is not an option.

Diplomatic Idiocy

For the last several decades American exceptional-ism has been on a downward spiral right into the dumpster. People have forgotten what good manners are; they have tried to eradicate modesty and they’ve promoted the crass instead of encouraging dignity. The results are astounding. People have become vile and hateful. They have turned from intelligence and embraced the fallacy of pride. The 2016 political campaign is already ugly, and it will only get worse.

In this age of Social Media where people try to make a point in less than 140 characters, post endless pictures of themselves and argue their point of view with nothing more than vitriol toward those who disagree with them, we seem to have lost our ability to think things through before we speak.  Americans have the attention span of a gnat, and they seek short sound bites to either back up their opinions or to use against others.  Instead of researching and reading up on the issues that are important, they grab headlines and memes and shout to the world that if you don’t agree with them, there is something wrong with you.  And, if you support any candidate other than theirs, you are un-American.

People are very angry about the current circumstances in our Nation, and rightly so. The liberal/socialist parasite has all but devoured our country with politically correct offense and the endorsement of all things evil.  We are not on our way to Tyranny; we are already there.  The problems we face go far beyond whether or not the Confederate flag is racist. In recent weeks our own Supreme Court has insinuated on the Citizenry that government is a god and if we are to get along we must bow down at the Altar of Bureaucracy.  The only way the American people can reform this Nation is to stop acting like a bunch of 5 year-old girls fighting over a lollipop, and get serious about standing up for Freedom instead of self-indulgent absurdity.

Candidates and partisan pundits, on all sides of the political spectrum, who show disdain for diplomacy by letting their speech be filled with anger, and citizens who push the same narrative are all dangerous to our Republic. If the people of America have become so dependent on hateful sound bites to get their point across, we may be lost forever. It is time to get real. It is time to start seeking Truth and sharing it with everybody. Truth given in kindness will be accepted; Truth displayed in anger will turn people away. If you only support a candidate because you agree with his/her anger, you are the problem. If diplomacy doesn’t work for you because you think we’ve reached the point where only bitterness can win elections, then (forgive me) you are an idiot.

It is entirely possible for candidates and the citizens who support them to win elections by being diplomatic.  Good manners and dignity speak volumes on their own, but if you take the time to listen to the candidate who exhibits these qualities you will find it easier to discern the issues. If a candidate and his/her supporters use rudeness as their mode of delivery, you will find a large group of very dangerous, very ignorant people. Yes, polite candidates can be very wrong on the issues, and rude candidates can be right. It is up to us as individuals to discern which is which. However, if all you do is cling to the angry sound bites and memes, you are failing.

If you want to avoid being a diplomatic idiot, I encourage you to take some time and do your research on the issues; know the context behind the headlines and use some common sense when you converse with others.  If all you have in your political arsenal is meaningless quips, you just prove that the argument is more important to you than the issue at hand. America needs to get her dignity back. America needs to exhibit excellence again. And, Americans need to get over themselves and realize that it is our own diplomatic idiocy that has allowed the liberal/socialist parasite to suck the very life out of our great nation. So, Patriot, what will it be? Is Freedom important to you? Because if it is, it is time to grow up and fight for it.  Are you willing to encourage and support candidates that display Christian/Conservative values and a love for America? Or are you going to let the left win again? Make up your mind, American! We have a Nation to save.
