Increasingly, these days I awake to depressing thoughts about my nation and its continued plight to destruction. My mind is relentless in trying to figure out what can be done.
I once heard a commentator remark that in the early days of Massachusetts Colony, for a person to seek or promote themselves for public office was an immediate disqualification for public office. I have not been able to verify this, but it seems a sound principle that may be one of the key ingredients to turning this nation around.
We need nothing short of a revolution to turn this nation around. Such a revolution can be won at the ballot box in a single election if we know how to do battle. Currently, it seems we are the victims of thousands of arrows being launched at us on a continuous and relentless onslaught, and we use what little energy we have to try to stop one or two of those arrows from reaching its mark at any point in time.
Most of us spend the majority of our lives between earning a living, family, and friends. We are not like the enemy, who promote naïve (and counterproductive) ideologies, political manipulation and the acquisition of government power as their life long career. Most of us live off the fruits of our labor, not from the rewards in one form or another of political patronage. And, as the economy goes south, the fruit of our labor is at grave risk.
Political forces divide our people, undermine the private sector, destroy public education, rob us of our freedom and our property rights, ham-string the free enterprise system from creating jobs and wealth, while institutionalizing laziness and moral decay. And we have an entertainment industrywhich includes the supposed news media that promotes its own ideological agenda, much of which is to simultaneously pacify, dumb down, and morally corrupt society.
The enemy works full time at it and many of its soldiers get paid well for it. At best, if we are to fight and win the war, we will have a part time volunteer army.
We are fighting against an ideology an ideology that believes that government, increasingly bigger government is the solution to man's problems. As with any ideology, its adherents consider themselves the intellectuals yet the term pseudo-intellectual is more accurate. They are so caught up in their ideology, that they are blind to the lessons of history.
The problem is that we, the proponents of freedom, do not know how to wage war. Our forefathers won it for us, and gave us a Constitution. But, in answer to the lady who inquired about the new form of government, Franklin replied: A Republic
if you can keep it.
It is our job to keep itor save it the Republic that is.
Even with a part time volunteer army, we can win if we stop our quibbling about each arrow being launched against us and use our energy to organize a battle plan to win. As I mentioned earlier, this nation can be turned around from the results of a single electionbut not unless that election is the result of a master plan of action that is prepared for an immediate process of implementation following that election.
I think that admonition about a person seeking office being a disqualification has extreme merit. Politicians will not win the day for us. Finding the right heroes to represent us is not going to win the day. Our freedom is based on the founding documents of this nation: The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States of America, our Bill of Rights, and such supplementary supporting documents as the Federalist Papers and the Northwest Ordinance.
Our forefathers fought to free us from the decadence of Europe. The crippling of our nation, the corruption of our Constitution came as the teaching of European intellectual (better pseudo-intellectual) thought penetrated into this nation via the progressive movement which supplanted our founding documents with evolutionist ideologies. To win, we must expose the evolutionist ideology for the preposterous fraud that it is and develop a step by step plan to remove the facets of government founded upon progressive ideas and replace them (as needed) with sound law based on Constitutional principles.
If we can mobilize, the numbers should be with us. I would estimate the percentage of people who are die-hard leftist ideologues to be around 10-15% at most. Useful idiots in one form or another probably account for another 35-40% and they are mostly congregated in the urban areas. As we probably can't change the minds of most of the ideologues, we must stop using our efforts to preach to the choir of patriots and instead develop a plan to win the hearts and minds of a good share of those useful idiots.
The goal is to restore our Constitutional Republic.
The idea that a person who seeks public office is disqualified can be a winning strategy. If we play that strategy, our focus will be on the platform, the agenda, the policy that we wish to push forward. Living in the real world with a media that is expert in the art of personal destruction by promoting the agenda in preference to promoting individuals, we will be effectively disarming the enemy. How can they practice personal destruction on ideas? Well, they can try but if we are doing our jobs, we will be promoting those ideas in such as way as to simultaneously debunk the opposition while promoting the efficacy of a federalist system operating under the Constitution.
This is where it gets a little difficult, because so far the Conservatives, the tea party, the Republicans, etc. are mainly fighting to expose the arrows being shot at us: Agenda 21, gun control, taxes, etc., etc. I hear big talk about restoring the integrity of the Constitution, but I do not hear any specifics.
I could lay out quite a list of areas where the Constitution has been corrupted by the federal government stealing rights from the people and the States that were never intended -- and what can and should be done to rectify things. However, that is well beyond the scope of this email and unless someone else agrees with me to some extent on what I have written above I am only wasting my time.
Darwinian Evolution versus Nature's God This is a most serious issue for the survival of our Constitutional Republic. As the Progressive's convince our youth that Evolution is a scientific fact, they pave the way for a demise of our nation's foundational strength. One does not win the war of ideas by being uninformed. If you would like to view an enlightening video on Science and Creation, I recommend the 1 hr 8 minute video by Hugh Ross currently available on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPvO2EkiLls This is an important topic if we are to reverse the Progressive move to eliminate God from the public forum and among the pseudo-intellectuals who mockingly refer to those who accept Christianity as "committing intellectual suicide." I highly recommend all of Hugh Ross's books, and the resources available at http://www.reasons.org/
Do you understand our form of government? If you do not understand the important difference between a Constitutional Republic and a Democracy, you are not equipped to understand the politics of our struggle against tyranny.

Stop letting those who hate the Constitution dictate the agenda and terminology: BLUE reflects patriotism and should be for the Patriots of our Constitution, those, Conservatives, Republicans, Libertarians, and yes: Classical Liberals who wish to restore our lost freedoms and the integrity of our Constitutional Republic. RED is the color of socialism/communism and should be the color to portray Progressives, Libertines, Leftist Liberals, Statists, Socialists, Communists, Fascists, Anarchists, and all those simple minded groupies that are easily led astray by shallow ideologies. Why should we patriots follow the color code dictated by the radical left who wish to portray us in an unfavorable light? Look at the map of our last election in the true blue colors:
If you look closely at the map, you will see that we must win back the cities. The election was no landslide for the opposition; we only lost by just over 2%. What we need to do is to create the arguments (through the popular media of music, video, Internet, etc.) to convince the poor that they are being enslaved by government programs and point them to an optimistic view of a future where they too can have a fruitful and (This can be achieved through such means as true parental choice in education, restored freedoms to work and create enterprise, and restored rights of private property so the poor can realistically pursue and achieve the American Dream!) fulfilled life.
Our nation is going down the tube because our federal government is violating the tenants of the U.S. Constitution. You cannot effectively work to restore our freedom unless you understand the Constitution. The book I recommend (and it comes with an MP3 audio book and also available in video) is the 5000 Year Leap and learning the subject matter should be mandatory for any high school graduate. If you have not read it, you are missing something important to your knowledge of the U.S. Constitution and your ability to fight the good fight to save America.

I am a classical liberal, as were our nation's founding fathers: Classical liberalism is the philosophy committed to the ideal of limited government, constitutionalism, rule of law, due process, and liberty of individuals including freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and free markets. http://www.ncpa.org/pub/what-is-classical-liberalism Just like everything else, those who hate the freedoms our forefathers gave us and want to create a powerful central state to control every aspect of our lives takes perfectly good terms (such as liberalism) and distorts it for their purposes.
