Liberals represents the state. It should be quite obvious to clear minded people that the current agenda of the left is single party socialist rule in perpetuity. Economic viability, domestic security, national sovereignty, individual liberties and adherence to Constitutional principles are all secondary to their primary goal. Conservatives must represent the people of the United States of America. On the surface, Conservatives today appear to have no strong leadership and no plan. Yet, emerging from the grassroots Tea Party movement are patriotic leaders ready to embody a return to principles and values. National leadership ignores these grassroots leaders at their own peril. Why is this important?
From 2000 to 2006, a Republican Congressional majority abandoned traditional Conservative values and practiced spending habits that were indistinguishable from Democrats. They didn’t demonstrate the fiscal responsibility/discipline practiced when the Contract with America resulted in balanced budgets in the 1990s. As a result, American government, entitlements, deficits and debt all grew. This opened the door for justifiable criticism from the Democratic Party. After running a successful campaign based on promises of fiscal responsibility and discipline, the current Democratic majority and White House resident have set out to double our debt in five years and triple it in ten. This is not the path to long term economic growth and stability.
We cannot borrow and spend our way into prosperity.
Conservatives are awake to this reality because we’ve been betrayed by our own Party. This lack of anchorage to any permanent values, this blindness to the true purpose of our mission produced unwanted results. That time over. Today, the best way for Conservatives to distinguish themselves from the tax and spend policies of big government is a return to fiscal responsibility and fiscal discipline. As Americans, we must be united and we must be responsible in this endeavor. Most importantly, this time, we’ve got to practice what we preach.
A winning coalition must include both economic and social Conservatives. Neither agenda can be successfully pursued without the other; they fit hand in glove.
This is because the government’s power is derived from the consent of the governed, whose rights are God given.
The tea party movement proves that across our great country, a huge natural constituency exists for the bread-and-butter American issues of lower taxes, reduced government, strong national defense, secure borders, term limits and a return to the traditional American values of:
E Pluribus Unum, Liberty and in God we trust.
E Pluribus Unum means from many, one. It doesn’t mean unquestioning acquiescence to multiculturalism.
Liberty means equality of opportunity, not equality of results.
In God we trust means reliance upon the Creator of all thing. It doesn’t mean passive acceptance of secularism, atheism or systemic, state funded murder of the innocent unborn.
These are troubling times…
And there is a time for every event under heaven —
A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the time has come to us.
Whether we asked for it or not, this time is our time.
At this moment in history, there’s no substitute for liberty. There’s no substitute for our Constitution in the defense of that liberty. It’s imperative that the shredding of this document be stopped. It’s inherent upon patriotic Americans to stand up and remind our government that their power is derived from the consent of the governed.
Disillusioned middle of the road swing voters frustrated and dissatisfied with the government’s response to the economic crisis; college graduates who voted for hope and change who’re unhappy at the prospect of not finding a job. Are you ready for a viable solution to the economic catastrophe resulting from big government spending in the hopes that somehow, some way, this time, for the first time in history, it will work? Are you ready for a viable solution? Conservatives offer you the solution.
Americans nationwide need to set aside whatever differences we have and unite behind the goal we all share.
Republicans, Libertarians, Democrats, Independents, even those who aren’t yet registered. Come together! Join in the fight to defend our Constitution, our economy and the American way of life!
Stand up for your God given rights! Let no mortal take them from you.
The question is, are you willing to put aside your egos and personal agendas in order to provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare and secure the Blessings of Liberty for yourselves and your Posterity? The time has come. Are you ready to answer the call?
