Subject: From Defense to OFFENSE!!
From Defense to OFFENSE!!
Who, other than the Progressives/Liberals/Democrats know how to operate on the offense?
The political email I receive (and to some extent send) from Conservative/Republican/Tea Party elements are almost exclusively defensive: explaining about the attacks on our liberties to inform and a call to “defend” ourselves.
I do not know of any war that was won strictly by the Army staying on the defense.
Right now, a fight is waging over Obamacare and the impending action to raise the debt limit. I listen to Boehner, and all I hear is some weak meowing as to how all previous administrations were willing to “negotiate” but Obama won’t play ball. What bullshit! And this man leads the House Republicans?
While Obama states (over and over) that raising the debt limit does not raise the nation’s debt – Boehner is not calling him on this. Obama is making a play on words and getting away from a blatant deception to the uninformed general public. True, raising the debt limit does not raise the nation’s debt in itself—but as soon as the debt limit is raised, the government will continue to spend and the nation’s debt will increase. Over the past days, I have yet to hear the Republican side state that our government is spending beyond its means and we must slow down the growth of government or we shall surely get to a point of total economic collapse—and we are quickly getting there.
The Democrats have talking points, why don’t the Republicans?
Well, the answer is that the Democrats actually have a plan, and the Republicans don’t. Just like the Tea Party doesn’t….give me a break “Taxed Enough Already” is not some plan of action.
If the Republicans or the Tea Party don’t develop a workable, transmittable, understandable (understandable by your average citizen) plan…how are we ever going to do much more than bitch and complain as the Democrats score one point after another as we do nothing more than try to block some of their shots?
Here are some ideas of talking points:
Obama is playing a game of words and trying to deceive you: Raising the debt ceiling will result in increasing the nation’s debt.
The nation’s debt has increased under Obama at an unprecedented rate and is bankrupting the nation.
Obama and the Democrats refuse to establish a workable budget—and thus have been getting away with wasting your tax money and borrowing 40 cents on the dollar.
Obamacare was passed through legislative trickery against the will of the people and against the best interests of the nation—this is shameful.
Government is the most inefficient and fraud prone method of accomplishing projects for the general public—so handing over the healthcare industry to government is bound to result in steadily increasing costs and continually lower quality health care. Look at the Post Office and every other endeavor that government has taken over. Why would any sane person want to turn such a vital function over to a bunch of government bureaucrats?
Pray for gridlock—just about every bill passed by your legislature caters to special interests and robs the general public.
Roll Back Government – time to clean house.
Somehow, we need to develop a plan—publish it, and promote it.
I for one and getting sick and tired of just sending a bunch of email around to people—I want to help develop and execute a serious plan of action that is capable of cleaning house—both in D.C. and in our State houses.
May God bless America, and may He convict us of our complacency.
A DIRE WARNING OF WHERE THIS NATION IS HEADING: “History has proved it over and over, worldwide; only an all-powerful government could ever hope to control a populace with no moral core.” -- The Eye of Moloch, page 139.
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. Please watch this 10 minute 36 second video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDS1OHk7Lf8&feature=related
Political Opportunism – The forces of political opportunism overshadow and blind us to the real issues. To turn this nation around, we must escape (at least for the moment) the tyranny of politicians and the promotion of such—as no man or group of men will be the salvation for our nation. In the early days of the Massachusetts Colony, it is said that for an individual to seek public office was an immediate disqualification. If only we, who wish to restore our Republic, could grab hold of that concept and live it, perhaps we could not just focus on the battle plan of action needed to restore our limited federal government, but also protect our potential candidates for public office from character assassination—by having the focus being on the policy that is being proposed, and not the individual candidate sworn to promote that policy. This is an idea that bears much thought in order to come to fruition—for in its fruition is the only hope that corporate wisdom of “We the People” will prevail over the short sighted political process that governs modern American politics.
Do you want to understand the sad history as to how our nation is on the verge of bankruptcy due to its supposed WAR ON POVERTY? I thought I understood the background fairly well until I read the book by Marvin Olasky, THE TRAGEDY OF AMERICAN COMPASSION. The saga behind today’s government programs is truly a war on the values that made America a great nation! Maybe, after you read the book, you will be like me and want the book made into a documentary so that the “useful idiots” that are manipulated by the enemies of our republic might learn something! The Tea Party movement is never going to gain a true foothold on solving the nation’s ills until it understands that those at the bottom, the poor, those who have become dependent upon the myriad government programs are just as much victims as those who pay the bill. Until the Tea Party learns this and promotes that reality it will remain a marginal power to effect the change needed to restore this nation.
Darwinian Evolution versus Nature’s God – Our founding documents refer to nature’s God. This is a most serious issue for the survival of our Constitutional Republic—for a valueless, rudderless populous is easy to lead astray. As the Progressive's convince our youth that Darwinian Evolution is a scientific fact, they undermine our nation's foundational strength. One does not win the war of ideas by being uninformed. There are a lot of books that I could recommend on the subject. If you lack time, at least take a little time to view a video on Science and Creation, I recommend the 1 hour and 8 minute video by Hugh Ross. It is 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 if we hope to disarm the pseudo-intellectuals who mockingly refer Christianity as “intellectual suicide." I highly recommend all of Hugh Ross’s books, and the resources available at http://www.reasons.org/ Two outstanding books on modern science, one on the Cosmos “Why The Universe Is the Way It Is” by Hugh Ross, and the other on the biology and physics of life, “The Hidden Face of God – How Science Reveals The Ultimate Truth” by Gerald L. Schroeder. Buying used on Amazon, these make great eye-opening reads.
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%. We need to explain (through the popular media of music, video, Internet, etc.) to the poor how they are being enslaved by government programs, and provide a realistic and optimistic view of a future where they too can have a fruitful and fulfilled life. (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!)
Our nation is going down the tube because our federal government is violating the tenants of the U.S. Constitution. Via a corrupt interpretation of the Commerce Clause, the federal government has usurped authority never granted by the Constitution and based on that corrupt interpretation a lion’s share of our federal bureaucracy has evolved to the detriment of “we the people”, the economy, the nation, and the rights of the individual States. You cannot effectively work to restore our freedom unless you understand the Constitution. A book I recommend (and it comes with an MP3 audio book and also available in video) is the 5000 Year Leap. Learning the subject matter as contained in this book 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 corrupting purposes.

This nation is “losing it” as it progresses in a self-destruct mode. This glorious nation, one uniquely founded on a most reasonable, albeit “sane” foundation than any previous in history—one which brought it to become that shining light to the world—is now becoming an irrational blight upon its own people. Three of the powerful aspects that made America great are being devastated: 1) The strong moral and spiritual base within its people, 2) a free enterprise system, 3) the Constitution of the United States of America established to promote the first two aspects and to protect the public from the tyranny of unrestricted government power.
Our nation was founded by those who fled the despotism of Europe—both religious and governmental. Leaning on the lessons from history it chose to found its government in a way as to keep the three major elements separate: Religion, Government, and Economic Enterprise. For, when any two of those combine, the result is tyranny.
Over the past 150 years, our once strong moral base has been undermined by relentless attacks on our religious beliefs, led by a once plausible theory of evolution—which in light of recent scientific discovery is at best the most far-fetched of pseudo-science—but now enforced by government in the public forum and taught as fact (for those who would care to do some reading on the subject, one book I would recommend is WHY THE UNIVERSE IS THE WAY IT IS, by Hugh Ross).
While the Supreme Court still has the Ten-Commandments prominently displayed, our government actively promotes laws which undermine each and every one of those commandments—making it such that even the most evil of religions can righteously point to this nation as “The Great Satan.”
Unlimited expansion of the federal government has been made possible through a twisted and unintended interpretation of the “Commerce Clause,” –whereby the federal government has undermined the original intent, while blatantly neutering the Tenth Amendment. This has allowed the federal government to unconstitutionally expand is power and diminish our once healthy and prospering free enterprise system.
Any student of history or of human nature knows how fallible man is, and what wickedness he is capable of inflicting on his fellow man. And any man of spiritual understanding can see beyond the shallow ideologies of socialist, communist, and progressive thought which dominate modern politics.
We are in the midst of a war where the enemy is bent on destroying our nation’s moral and spiritual base, our free enterprise system, and the Constitution created to protect it from man’s natural inclination to use government to accumulate power over others.
The attack of the enemy is on multiple fronts and relentless. We must learn to fight effectively—but the battle is the Lord’s. If we are to wage it successfully, we must seek His light, His wisdom, His direction, and His Power. I am not a religious man and must fight off the tendency to hold the institutional church in America in contempt, as it has allowed the enemy to flourish. But thank God we do not need the institution of the church to save this nation, but we do need God. As Christ said in Matthew 18:20: “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them." While I applaud the efforts of patriots in various Tea Party movements to expose the attacks of the enemy, we need to establish a true battle plan to win back our Republic. Only with God’s power and direction can we achieve this. I for one, welcome the opportunity to meet with others in prayer for the purpose of seeking God’s direction and power to turn this nation around.

“It would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights; that confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism; free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy, and not confidence, which prescribes limited constitutions to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power; that our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no farther, our confidence may go….In questions of power, let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”—Thomas Jefferson
