"I have never publicly protested anything. I have never run for office. I would not want it, even if it were offered without the race, because I'm not one who really wants to be confrontational. If I were in office, I would have to be."

OK....you lost me right here. Overall, a fine piece, I must say.....yet you openly admit to being one who doesn't want to be confrontational.

So, you want someone else to do it for you? You feel that the mess we find ourselves in will be rectified without confrontation?

This isn't just about the RNC or Tea Partiers or any other group. This is all about US; those of us who consider ourselves American citizens. WE have to stand up and be heard; WE have to confront power grabs and idiocy and political correctness and destruction of our society wherever we encounter it: the local school, the local school board, your town or city council, your State legislature, etc., etc.

Let me suggest that it isn't just the RNC that needs to "grow a set".

What I said was that I am not normally a confrontational person. I don’t go seeking it. I don’t WANT power, because with it comes responsibility. Christ, in the Garden, sweated blood praying “ If possible, let this cup pass from me”. We all know He still did it. There’s nothing wrong with not being of a nature that doesn’t seek confrontation.

But if you run for office... and you get elected... YOU OWN THIS MESS AND YOU HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO FIX IT. I’m known in my world as a “really nice guy”.

IF I were to be in office, then I would have a sacred obligation to not just be a little confrontational - a la Gov Christie and some shmuck reporter - but to be the toughest, meanest, most devious, determined and unflagging General there ever was. To rally every troop determined to fight and to fight to the last man standing in the best and most effective way possible. To use every possible weapon at my disposal to do the right thing.

After all, what needs to be done is not just the “Right thing”, but the imperative, due to the consequences.

SEIU thugs are naturally confrontational, but they’re just bullies. Put good men, with good conviction with their backs to the wall, and they truly fight. Even if that’s not their first nature.

So well said, much better than I and in fewer words too. Who will save America? Go look in the mirror. "If not us, who? If not now, when?" - Ronald Reagan
