We all are well aware that the Republican image as a conservative force supported by conservative principles is, nationally, in danger of becoming irrelevant specifically because the national Republican leadership apparently does everything it can to avoid offending Democrats.
The undercurrents of dissatisfaction spawned by the failure of the National GOP to sell its product, as reflected in the November election, has given us all pause. Where do we go from here? Do we have time to make the corrections necessary to pull America out of its socialist experiment and return it to the American principles upon which it was founded? How do we change the political leadership that has brought us to such an unhappy impasse?
I don’t have the answers but clearly neither do our leaders. We don’t know what they really want except to keep their jobs. The pundits have all pontificated their take on the disaster; why it happened and what should have been done to make the GOP message sellable. We can debate and talk around the issues for ever and not agree. But instinctively, we know what the problem is. It was not Candidate Romney. He is a good and decent Christian man with a record of success at business. He is exactly what was needed for American at this time.
No, America’s problem is a basic philosophical problem between the clashing philosophies of socialistic collectivism, who were November’s winners, and the Capitalistic free market system of small government, low taxes and a Republican representative form of government. The fault is ours, having failed for the past fifty years, of stopping the socialist agenda infiltrating our public schools even when we saw it coming. They were allowed to succeed.
They have now prepared for us a generation of voters who have had the process of rational, common sense and logical thinking squeezed out of them and replaced with the dogma of multiculturalism, sharing personal private property, lining up like sheep to be fleeced, and total denigration of the contribution of western civilization to be replaced with such odious ideas as Kwanza, Sharia Law, holiday trees, and government as the state religion.
That’s where conservatives need to focus their attention and their fullest energy for the next several years. The fight will be brutal, the police state will resist and future elections will be shams. We’re in for a rough ride and many will fall but we must prevail, for our children’s sake.
“There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part; you can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!” This is my favorite quote and it wasn’t made by Winston Churchill. It was made by Mario Savio, leader of the 1965 Free Speech Movement at UC Berkeley, Calif. and, he said it so brilliantly!
So, let’s erase our melancholy, stop assigning blame and look to identifying the sources of the friction that is going to ignite us. Let’s look to solutions of repair or replacement of the damaged parts of the Republican Party, or form a new one. Let’s think about re-educating American’s youth. So far, the US Constitution hasn’t been voided, it has just been ignored. Its well thought out principles have been redefined by non elected judges in terms that meet no level of common sense. Fairness has been redefined to mean “what’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is mine too.” Remember freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. (13 Dec 2012).
