CONSERVATIVES..."YES, WE MUST!!!" How can we stop this "LIBERAL TIDAL WAVE" sweeping across America?
Beloved Levinite | Thursday, November 13, 2008 | Beloved Levinite

Posted on 11/13/2008 10:14:28 AM PST by Beloved Levinite

Conservatives!! There is a "LIBERAL TIDAL WAVE" sweeping across this nation & if we don't "stem the tide" fairly soon & pretty quickly, I'm afraid most remnants of conservative values will be swept away forever. (or at least until *the REAL MESSIAH* comes to our rescue!)

We need to start organizing a *NEW CONSERVATIVE YOUTH MOVEMENT* in this country! Out with the old ideas (they are NOT working!) and in with THE NEW! We need to come up with some *revolutionary ideas* (pun intended) on how we can "indoctrinate" our young people.

For starters, I propose offering home schooling parents a program such as, say, "The Conservative Classroom," where local *young* conservative teachers, *young* activists and/or *young* local politicians could volunteer their time to teach our youth about the *vital* importance of conservative values & our nation's founding principles!

Who is it that once said you need to "get 'em while they're young!" Groups such as the LibTurd educators, gay agenda-ites, the PLO & most importantly the "0bama movement" understand this creed fully, and are indocrinating en masse. We conservatives better wake up & catch up....and FAST! We need to "flood the youth culture" with our beliefs & ideals in new & more effective ways then the Dims @ the grassroots level.

We need to take back this country one child at a time, one family at a time & one politician at a time. I'm afraid that if we don't do this NOW....WE ARE TOAST! I implore you to please voice your opinions here & offer your *revolutionary ideas* so we can start attempting to take back our beloved nation...the *STILL* great & wonderful United States of America!

We need to RE-ORGANIZE, ORGANIZE, ORGANIZE!!! And let's not let these ideas that may be shared here die right along with this thread in a day or three. Let us try & implimate them in our own neighborhoods & stay in touch with one another! For the good of this nation, it's not just "Yes, we can!" It is "YES, WE MUST!"

IN GOD WE TRUST...

TOPICS: Education; Politics; Religion; Society
KEYWORDS:
This idea started as my answer to PhiKapMom on another thread. But I did not want it to go unnticed & get "lost in the mix." I hope it sparks some interesting & neccessary ideas from FReepers nationwide.

Thanks.

Posting more vanities would probably be a good start.

“How can we stop this “LIBERAL TIDAL WAVE” sweeping across America?”

We can start by abandoning the Republican party and finding a REAL home for conservatives.

Actually I have to be the dark horse here and say Conservatism has never been stronger than ever. What is failing is the Republican party. For one stupid reason or another a lot of them are RINOs (hence why McCain was the nominee). The American people are by and large conservative. Just look at the results of many ballot questions across the country. Further, Obama was able to capture 20% of the conservative vote. How? Although his record shows him as far left, he promsied “tax cuts on the middle class” (really tax credit welfare) and ran on a (for the most part) positive and uplifiting message (or so the media portrayed him). Thus, while he is on the far Left, Obama was able to capitalize on some essentials of conservatism: tax cuts and Reagan style idealism. That is not even considering the minority populations who voted for him because of his skin color but don’t typically vote. It also excludes the media’s obsession over him and the ACORN votes.

So the problem, in my estimation, is not so much that the conservatives are leaving or disappearing. Instead, it is that the GOP has, since 1996, shifted further and further to the left. Honestly, how many people here voted for/supported McCain either because of Palin or out of a fear of Obama?

The problem is the parties, not conservative ideology.

I learned a good lesson from Carter. Being young and
stupid, I believed his “born again” status made him
the “right” choice. We’re still suffering the bruises caused
by that fall off the carter cliff.

The bright side is that many of those who elected Barack
Obama are also young and stupid. If our Constitution can
endure him without mortal consequences, I predict an army
of “born again” conservatives who will have seen the light.
They will vote more responsibly and we could be done
with liberalism ... for a while.

IN THE MEANTIME EDUCATE, TEACH AND PRAY!

Although I am Catholic, I suggest to you that Evangelicals have done a very good job at informing. They voted 75% McCain, not in support of McCain, but in support of Christianity. Our Catholic church has been under attack for years and the election results reflected that.

The evil forces of Marxism, Muslim Extremists, CPU, BLT, EU Socialism, Ethnic Cleansers of Planned Parenthood, etc. have obviously all joined forces under the Democratic party. Perhaps we join forces in the name of our God.

If you want to stop the march of liberalism in the short term, you've got to have a good messenger capable of communicating the conservative agenda. For that you need solid leadership preaching sound policy.

In the long term the only way to stop the march of liberalism is to change the educational system in America and reverse the leftwing propaganda being spewed by the mainstream media. A better educated and informed citizenry would go a long way to re-instilling the original intent of America's Founders and Framers.

We should be educating our kids more about the triumphs of
such true leaders as Ronald Reagan,Phyllis Schlafly and Maragaret Thatcher.Hammering home these success stories to our young men and women is an important start towards the road back home to a strong,conservative America-and you cannot start too young.

Here is the website for “The Truth Project”
I’ d love to use Friday nights at our church
for a soup and salad fellowship and then media
related to reclaiming our nation for Christ.

http://www.thetruthproject.org/

Other media I would use:

1. “Amazing Grace” (film)
2. “Mr. Smith Goes To Washington” (Frank Capra film)
3. H. G. Wells “Animal Farm” revival
4. “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” revival (the story is NOTHING like the spin) It was a huge hit for years in our country
5. G. K. Chesterton’s debate with George Bernard Shaw “Democracy vs. Communism” http://chesterton.org/
6. G. K. Chesterton’s debate with Clarence Darrow on “Evolution vs. Creationism” (this was never recorded, but media comments can be pieced together for a presentation) http://americanchestertonsociety.blogspot.com/2006/05/evolution-editorial.html.
7. Anything from Chesterton http://chesterton.org/
8. Anything on Creationism vs. Evolution
9. “The Light and the Glory” by Peter Marshall. This is a book, but I’ll hunt around to see if there’s anything comparable in DVD.

First off,
Do what my friends/family and I have been doing:
1)No more money to Hollywood. I have not seen a movie in quite some time unless it’s made by conservatives. I buy only USED dvd’s!
2) I don’t buy anything from companies that give money to gays, abortion and stuff like that.
3)Only buy gas from companies that use US Oil/refineries!
4)Most important, if they deny God or the word “Christmas” they are off the list for good.

It’s not as hard as it seems. Go to www.frc.org and some other sites for this type of information.

The tidal wave is not "coming", it is here. It has already begun crashing upon us.

Good men ceased to be good men by doing nothing for too long, now all that remains for us are consequences.

Red-handed traitors who were not tried and hung decades ago will now be attending white house dinners, and conspiring with the full force of government against us and our God.

Store your food and supplies, and think only of how to protect your own families, the country is gone, and we deserve it.

Yep. Often the best way to stop something is to let it fully unfold - resisting it just gives it energy. Republicans should consider abstaining from every single vote in the next Congress.

The American people wanted this and as H.L. Mencken said, they deserve to get it - good and hard. ;)

In short, we can’t. Too many dumb, ingorant, soft, entitlement mentality people in this nation make our swing to the far left inevitable.

However, it will stop itself. Leftist ideas are inherrently destructibe to the nation and ultimately those who rule on such a basis. In other words, the system will crash, forcing those dumb, ingorant, soft, entitlement mentality people to feel real pain, to grow up, and to deal with reality.

Our job as conservatives is to preserve ourselves and our families (including close friends) through the coming storm so we lead when it comes time to rebuild.

The nation has been through this before, several times actually, and it will survive, all the stronger for the trials we will suffer.

The moral problem with socialism is profound: It exalts theft as an ethic and overlooks the human right of freedom.

I suggest starting with a different ethic. Do not ask what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your Country.

Well, right now, I can't see any new posts. That time-warp thingie seems to be happening again.

So, I'm tempted to post the most useless vanity I can think of (although, really, how does one top "I'm Wearing New Socks Today" for useless vanities?) because it won't show up for a while.

It's nearly bedtime here so I could kind of do a post-and-run and then I could read all of the angry replies in the morning.

Now, let's see....what would be the most useless vanity title ever? {diabolical laugh...}

We might be able to stop liberals, in 2010, if republican candidates, for the U.S. Senate and House campaign with a set of promises that would be similar to the Contract with America. They would promise that, if they regain control of both houses, they’ll pass a set of about five bills, including tax cuts, welfare cuts, and better enforcement of immigration laws.

It's been forgotten that the states, not the constitutionally limited federal government, call the shots in the USA. Sadly, the feds have been wrongly usurping state powers since the time of constitutional flunky FDR. This is because FDR ignored 10th A. protected state powers in order to start his constitutionally unauthorized New Deal federal spending programs.

But if the people demanded for the feds to respect the following constitutional statutes, ignored by the feds since the time of FDR, we'd see more changes to the USA than misguided Socialist Obama could imagine.

Article I, Section 8, Clause 18: To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution (emphasis added) in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

10th Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Totally agree! Thanks. I have recently come up with some ideas in light of Obama’s plan for youths to volunteer their hurs for service.
We need some conservative group offering good civic or programs, so we can educate them on issues. It is best NOt to be offered by GOP, as it might turn them off immediately.

Maybe Renew America

Restore America’s Greatness or something.

We need conservative mentors/coaches/speakers at these programs.

A rally or music concert from time to time is good

You see, the liberals in this country FEAR that the conservatives are going to make all abortions illegal, even where the mother’s life is genuinely at risk in some emergency situation. . and that women who have abortions are going to be sent to prison.

So, they have gone to the extremes in knee jerk reactions.

The dirty little secret is that the “back alley abortions with coat hangers” stories are likely mostly fabrications. Women down throughout the decades in this country have found so-called doctors who were accommodating to their “choices”. No one stopped them, and, indeed, no one sought to stop them or knew about their personal business. I assume that the Roe woman could have handled her situation without being used to make it public business.

I’m against any kind of abortion, but I’m also well aware that I can’t make anybody else honor my moral values. If the government hadn’t gotten into the middle of it, it would have not become a great big money-making “industry”. Then women could “choose” in private (and PAY for it themselves) rather than making us pay for her radical birth control under the guise of “healthcare”.

When a conservative says “overturn Roe v. Wade”, libs think they mean to put women who have abortions in jail.

THE TRUTH PROJECT is a DVD-based small group curriculum comprised of 12 one-hour lessons taught by Dr. Del Tackett. This home study is the starting point for looking at life from a biblical perspective. Each lesson discusses in great detail the relevance and importance of living the Christian worldview in daily life.

Lesson 1 - Veritology: What is Truth?

The Truth Project begins by defining truth as “that which corresponds to reality.” This absolute and eternal truth, at the heart of Jesus’ mission on earth, continues to be the focal point of the Cosmic Battle in our own time. Back to top

Lesson 2 - Philosophy and Ethics: Says Who?

Truth is not simply an academic concept. The way we think about truth has a direct bearing upon the way we live our lives. What’s more, our understanding of right and wrong is directly dependent on our worldview: is the universe God’s creation or a closed cosmic cube? Back to top

Lesson 3 - Anthropology: Who is Man?

The Bible tells us that man was created in God’s image but fell from innocence through sin. Modern psychology, on the other hand, asserts that man is inherently good and behaves badly only under the influence of social or institutional pressure. This lesson explores the implications of both views. Back to top

Lesson 4 - Theology: Who is God?

Eternal life, according to Jesus, is knowing God in an intimate, personal, and relational way. Such knowledge, which is possible only because of divine revelation, transforms us from the inside out as we begin to see ourselves in the light of His majesty and holiness. Back to top

Lesson 5 - Science: What is True?

Science, the “systematic study of the natural world,” brings to light innumerable evidences of Intelligent Design. But Darwinian theory transforms science from the honest investigation of nature into a vehicle for propagating a godless philosophy. (Part One)

A careful examination of molecular biology and the fossil record demonstrates that evolution is not a “proven fact.” Meanwhile, history shows that ideas, including Darwinism as a social philosophy, have definite consequences – consequences that can turn ugly when God is left out of the picture. (Part Two) Back to top

Lesson 6 - History: Whose Story?

Does the past have an objective actuality and significance? Or does it, as postmodernist philosophy asserts, exist primarily inside our heads? This tour considers the meaning of history as God’s story and shows us why remembering is so important. Back to top

Lesson 7 - Sociology: The Divine Imprint

The order we observe in the natural realm is even more apparent in the social systems God has established: family, church, community, state, labor, and the union between God and man. Life is a series of relationships that flow out of and reflect the Trinitarian nature of the Creator. Back to top

Lesson 8 - Unio Mystica: Am I Alone?

Is it possible for the infinite, eternal Creator to dwell within the heart of an individual? The implications of this great mystery, which represents the very core of the Christian faith, are explored at length in this examination of the most intimate of the social spheres. Back to top

Lesson 9 - The State: Whose Law?

Of all the social spheres, the state, to which God grants the power of the sword for the punishment of evil and the preservation of the good, has the greatest potential to go awry if it oversteps its authority. The civil magistrate must always remember his place under the sovereignty of God – otherwise, havoc will ensue. Back to top

Lesson 10 - The American Experiment: Stepping Stones

America is unique in the history of the world. On these shores a people holding to a biblical worldview have had an opportunity to set up a system of government designed to keep the state within its divinely ordained boundaries. Tour #10 follows the history of this experiment and explores what happens to freedom when God is forgotten. Back to top

Lesson 11 - Labor: Created to Create

Contrary to a great deal of contemporary popular opinion, work is not a “curse.” God Himself is active and creative, and He calls man to share in the joy of His activity and creativity. Labor, economics, media, and the creative arts all have a role to play in magnifying the glory of the Creator. Back to top

Lesson 12 - Community and Involvement: God Cares, do I?

The ethical law and the meaning of the Christian life are summed up in the commandment to love God and one’s neighbor. This command is the source of the believer’s motivation for self-sacrificial service to the needy and their personal involvement in our culture. Back to top
