If you are not fully engaged with the concept of ‘recording devices’, you will be. You….will….be….
You may already know this: there will be a reckoning. Actually there will be three. This is primarily about the third one.
The first reckoning – America’s second Declaration of Independence
The first reckoning will be on election day, November 2, 2010, when Americans vote overwhelmingly to reject the Democrat agenda. It will be a down payment on the epic 10-year butt-kicking that will be delivered to the anti-American, anti-freedom, corrupt, anti-Constitution movement. We lost our vigilence, allowed this statism to creep up for the last 80 years. Now it’s run amok, and we’ll swing the pendulum back. As Dick Cheney would say, big time. Maybe you think it’s just a short-term temper tantrum, which the media hacks will of course assert. You’ll see.
It is a reckoning that will take your breath away. All your cheating will not keep the Republicans from taking 70 in the House, 8 in the Senate. That is the first reckoning. At least while you’re sitting in prison, you can comfort yourself in the knowledge that your cheating kept it from being 100 and 11.
Conservatives, patriots, military veterans, families and close friends of military, and plain average Americans will instantly get this movie. There’s no surprise in it for them, although it is gripping from beginning to end. But this movie wasn’t made for them, not really. It was made for the person who doesn’t quite get it. If you have allowed yourself to be persuaded by those who:
think the term American Exceptionalism is smug and self-congratulatory
don’t believe America is the bright shining symbol of freedom on a hill
think that America’s history is dominated by government-sanctioned oppression, racism, and the haves stealing from the working have-nots (other than the last 2 years, I mean)
think the model of ordered freedom needs to be replaced by a grand scheme controlled by smart, benevolent leaders
have no earthly idea why young American men would flock to recruiting offices by the thousand to sign up for a war in Iraq that could very well get them killed
think America owes you something, but you don’t owe anything back
but something in your heart gives you the lie, that recognizes something dissonant about it late at night, when it’s just you and your thoughts….then this movie is for you. Because you don’t get America, but you could. Somewhere in you beats the heart of an American. And there is something splendid, wonderful, and liberating about finally surrendering to the beauty of America. Read more
Now is an exciting time to be a Democrat, don’t you think? The midterm election is 40 days away. In a short two years we’ve gotten to see the Democrat vision for America take shape before our eyes. America stands ready to ratify that grand vision at the ballot box.
But instead of being loud and proud of the progress they’ve wrought on America, I see Democrats running from their records faster than Carl Lewis. They dodge any kind of forum where they have to meet constituents. None of their ads mention Porkulus, Cap and Trade, epic deficit spending, or even banking and automotive industry takeovers. By all appearances, the words “health” and “care” are not to be mentioned together, on pain of death. Nobody running for office wants Barack to campaign for them; or if he comes to their state, they mysteriously can’t break away from urgent business in order to be seen with him.
This is a strange and unbelievable thing. Why is this so? Read more
[ed – this story was written the day that it was announced breathlessly by lefty sites that nut-job Terry Jones was at the same high school in 1969 as Rush Limbaugh. It led to the expected headlines and yuckety-yucks in the commie media, including the WaPo bird-cage paper. I decided I had better fess up to my own Terry Jones connection before the commie media discovered it] Read more
I wholeheartedly believe that most foundational concepts regarding liberty, accountability, and responsible governance are really, really easy. Those truths that are not astoundingly obvious (like ‘it IS NOT the government’s job to regulate my salt intake‘) are at least fairly obvious to the average 4th grader (like ‘it IS the federal government’s job to secure the borders’)
This one is dedicated to the 41, the Republicans in the United States Senate. Considering the intended audience, I will stick to small words and easy concepts. So here we go.
Do we love liberty enough to keep it? I think we do.
A free people will not give up its freedom. Never has it been more evident than now that America is not Europe. We are indeed the world’s last best hope. And know this: America is spectacularly, magnetically, incurably, incandescent Exceptional. In spite of what the Boy President™ says, we ARE exceptional. And also in spite of what he says, nobody else can lay claim to the term.
We are it. There is no other. We are Exceptionalist America. We are the shining light of freedom that shows all the people of the world that they can be free as well. Read more
