Skip to comments.America will be Restored
Posted on 03/29/2010 5:57:24 AM PDT by RobaWho
I wrote this blog in October 2009, and never has it been more true than it is today. November 2010 will be historic on a scale not seen in our lifetimes!
Consider what will happen as the following massive voter groups begin to fuse and, at an absolute minimum, strongly trend AWAY from big government liberalism.
Irritated republicans. Angry conservatives. Ron Paul libertarians. Registered independents. Disaffected democrats. Frightened Medicare seniors. Disillusioned Jews. And drum roll: Conservative youth (18-26).
Pray, just for a moment (or longer, it's OK), reflect and analyze these energized groups. While political trends are often difficult to recognize and it's nearly impossible to predict individual winners in specific political races, I hold these observations to be self evident: Common sense, combined with American pride, an internal, passionate belief in personal freedom, a near universal disgust for Obama-Carter-Chavez-Mao-Marx-Ortega-Castro militant fascism inherent in Team Obama policies and appointees, and an economic misery index last seen in the late 1970's, real change is afoot.

Thanks, after the last two weeks, I NEEDED that.
Keep your head in the sand, stew in your own misery - not really healthy. When you get sick and tired of being sick and tired, you’ll realize that 60%+ of ALL Americans are as well. Fake conservatives, RINOs, big government republicans and cowards too weak to call Obama what and who he actually is, will not survive in this climate. American’s are being forced to take clear sides and will NOT support spineless wimps. I would not be surprised to see CONSERVATIVES pick up 80 to 100 House seats in November 2010, completely stunning the hell out of the MSM, American public and the entire WORLD. It could quite easily be the election heard ‘round the world.
America WILL survive this (if it is God’s will).
I do not believe we conquered a wild land, beat the British
Crown, turned back Hitler, the Japanese, the Soviet Empire, etc., only to be beaten by a closeted homosexual muslim, the Wicked Witch and ferret face.
LOVE your post. Thanks so much! We need balls of stone to crush the candy assed liberals and BS MSM - As soon as wee all realize the MSM is no longer the MSM and start laughing at and ridiculing these clowns, the quicker we’ll restore our great country.
ExTexasRedhead sent me this it might help a tad too. And it shows not all young people are kool-aide drinkers.
We have tools our Founding Fathers didn’t the internet, email, twitter, facebook and cell phones...we can send things viral in seconds! We might not fight a battke with bullets but oh the electronics at our finger tips are just as mighty a weapon.
I also think it will be the 18-26 year olds that will rise up and fight the hardest. My 18 & 23 yr old kids are VERY conservative, and this age group still has the “anything is possible-get out of my way” attitude. It takes most of us to get to our 50’s to get pessimistic (I think anyways!)
They aren’t stupid, and do see and understand what this means for them. They are also at the age where they ESPECIALLY don’t like someone else telling them what to do.
From your lips, to our young kid’s ballots! No more Smoke and Change.
It will take epic and and by now, institutionalized voter fraud to defeat the immense groundswell against this administration and its plans.
Monday morning goodie:
WE did no such thing. Better men than ourselves, to this point, did those things. WE squandered our inheritance and through our apathy, laziness and cowardice, gave up the guards of freedom to marxists. The worst mistake you can make is to assume the deeds of others as your own. It leads you to further inaction because you convinced yourself that just through the magic of your being, things will work out.
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE LATELY?! The answer for all of us, for far to long, has been NOTHING of consequence. We have valued civility over freedom and the institutions of government over natural rights. We thought "IT" couldn't happen here so we abandoned our duty to jealously guard our freedom and liberty. Now, after all our backpedaling and redrawing of the lines we made in the sand, we find that there is no place to draw a line any longer we have given ground until there was no ground left to give... All we have left to surrender is ourselves and any hope we may have had for our children and grandchildren to be free.
Perhaps NOW, on the verge of complete defeat and surrender we will find in ourselves the same courage and conviction that made the men who founded this nation, men of great deeds and not just pretty words! Maybe we will find the clarity of mind and principle to determine our course and move forward with single minded determination. Is it possible that we will value something to such an extent to be willing to sacrifice everything that we have to obtain it? The contest of freedom has never been for weak souls or men of weak principles. The drums of war are beating... As they have done before and will do so again... How we respond determines our fate and the fate of our posterity. The men who came before us and whose gift we chose fit to destroy were men of great ideas and words. They were also men who after they most eloquently made their points on paper and in person went on to CARRY OUT THOSE WORDS IN DEED! They put their "money and lives where their mouths were".
"No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope that it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen, if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.
This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty towards the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation?
For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth -- to know the worst and to provide for it. I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House?
Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation -- the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motives for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies?
No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer on the subject? Nothing.
We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves longer.
Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament.
Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope.
If we wish to be free -- if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending -- if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak -- unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?
Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.
The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable -- and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come!
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, "Peace! Peace!" -- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!" -- Patrick Henry
