The conservative movement has been hijacked by Republicans in Name Only (RINO’s), Republicrats, and Demopublicans. More and more conservative citizens are declaring themselves “Independents” because of the lack of representation by both parties. We are awakening to the truth that there isn’t a dimes worth of difference between liberals and neo-conservatives. We demand real change, not more of the same business as usual mentality.
Another election year where Americans are stuck with a choice of the evil of two lessers. President Obama is at the helm and travelling full throttle into the abyss. The Republican alternative would travel the same heading at a slower speed. Not much of a real choice when one looks at the situation with an open mind. Enough is enough of two heads of the same coin; America needs real reform.
Seems the political process has become a charade reminiscient of professional wrestling. The establishment is the promoter pitting the ‘hero’ against the ‘heel’, ‘Red team’ against ‘Blue team’, and ‘Bad’ against ‘worse’. When all the name calling and mud slinging is over and the dust settles the winner is declared. The American people are the real losers as the opponents slap each others backs and have a drink on the taxpayer’s dime.
A fellow Tea Party member has an apt analogy desribing the “difference” between the Red and the Blue. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a Blue tick or a Red tick; we are still the host and are getting sucked dry. The excellent article by T.J. Thompson; “The Real Enemy of Conservatism” on Conservative Daily news really breaks it down. Conservatives are allowing their vote to be stolen by letting the powers that be choose their candidates.
Conservatism/ Americanism means standing your ground for limited government, personal responsability, adherence to the Constitution, and a better world for our posterity. Conservatism isn’t settling for increased national debt, government run amuck, entitlement mentality, rescinded liberties, undeclared war, and a skeleton of a nation. We’ve allowed the slow but steady encroachment of the liberal mentality to gain a hold on the conservative camp. Mr. Thompson rightly states; “This real conservative spits in the face of Monopartisan tyranny and fights for liberty-even when I’m one man against an entire army. Stand on Principle…..or Stand Aside!” We as true conservatives need to lead, follow, or get out of the way.
Our liberties and freedoms are in danger now more than ever.We need an honest return to the ideals this nation was founded upon. If we accept anything less; we are dropping the ball and throwing the game. Those who don’t learn from the past are bound to repeat the cycle of mistakes. We cannot allow the blood, sweat, and tears of those who’ve sacrificed it all to give us freedom, to have been in vain. They deserve 110% of our effort and dedication.
It’s past time for Alabama conservatives to roll up their sleeves and get busy. Our main priority is to educate fellow Alabamians on the importance of the Constitution and the threats against it. We need to instill in our fellow citizens and Alabama’s children civic morality and the knowledge of the long term benefits of liberty.
Alabamians need to seek out and elect Statesmen to high offices. We’ve had enough of politicians who prefer an ignorant electorate. They will say whatever is needed to attain their goal of election or re-election. It’s up to us to make this happen. Liberals have hijacked our schools in order to dumb down our future. Our churches have fell silent and are hardly the salt and light needed to defeat the darkness we face. We must be the ones to turn the tide.
Alabamians must re-awaken the spirit of freedom and live up to our State Motto; “We Dare Defend Our Rights”. When our adversaries say that our Constitution is outdated or irrelevent today; it should stir righteous indignation in the heart of every conservative. This kind of awakening in Alabama and our nation could lay the foundation for real reform. If we don’t sow the seeds; we cannot reap the harvest or the blessings.
Remove the rose-colored glasses of neo-conservatism and see them for what they really are sugar coated liberals. There is an old Arabic proverb; “Make yourselves sheep and the wolves will eat you.” The sheep shouldn’t care whether he’s eaten by a Socialist/progressive Democratic wolf or one of the Democrat in Republican clothing variety. We’ve been fleeced for far too long.
There are countless detractors and naysayers vilifying and demonizing Rep. Ron Paul. His message is and always has been a return to the Constitutional Republic our Founders gave us. Congress and the Executive Branch have been slowing sawing away at the chains of the Constitution. Rep. Paul’s intent is to strap them back down. His campaign and views can truly be called a return to conservatism’s roots. This is why he scares the establishment so much. They attack any threat to their hold on power and real choice for the citizenry.
Let’s stand shoulder to shoulder and work on taking America back. Let’s break the chains of government dependency. Let’s work for a strong American Republic. It can be attained if, and only if, Americans wake up, stand up, and speak out. What say you, Alabama? Will you be counted among the Patriots?
