As the host of the NWCR show on Blog Talk Radio, through Conservative Nation Media I have come to realize something. Conservatives talk a good game, and a truthful one, but they are not willing to go the extra mile to try to make sure that the ideals that this country was founded on, and made her great, are enforced. Only the left is willing to get up in “activism mode” and go out behind the microphones and force their ideals on the rest of us.
And really folks, that has got to change or we will lose this great country to those activists.
Weekly, I advertise on my show that we are looking for new show hosts to join Conservative Nation Media or CNM as I will call it from now on, to give those that want a chance to change the direction this country has been led for the last eight years since Obama took office. And no one takes me up on it. The only reply I got was from one liberal who, as always wanted a new way to use a microphone to push their socialistic plans for this country ahead. Liberals want their socialistic eutopia more than Conservatives want to save this Constitutional Republic.
Oh now don’t get me wrong. There are many conservatives out here who will sit behind a keyboard and type things that they believe. There are plenty of Conservatives out here who will do that little bit more, and call into my show and talk. But no one on our side seems to want to take that extra step to put their voice out there. To push an agenda that America is great and worth saving. Oh yes we all believe that, but we are not willing to do anything about it. And it puts me at my wits end.
Reagan said it best when he said in his A Time For Choosing speech on October 27, 1964, when he said and I quote:
I am going to talk of controversial things. I make no apology for this.
It’s time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms intended for us by the Founding Fathers. James Madison said, “We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self government.”
This idea? that government was beholden to the people, that it had no other source of power is still the newest, most unique idea in all the long history of man’s relation to man. This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.
You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream-the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned, “The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits.”
The Founding Fathers knew a government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing.
Public servants say, always with the best of intentions, “What greater service we could render if only we had a little more money and a little more power.” But the truth is that outside of its legitimate function, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector.
Yet any time you and I question the schemes of the do-gooders, we’re denounced as being opposed to their humanitarian goals. It seems impossible to legitimately debate their solutions with the assumption that all of us share the desire to help the less fortunate. They tell us we’re always “against,” never “for” anything.
We are for a provision that destitution should not follow unemployment by reason of old age, and to that end we have accepted Social Security as a step toward meeting the problem. However, we are against those entrusted with this program when they practice deception regarding its fiscal shortcomings, when they charge that any criticism of the program means that we want to end payments….
We are for aiding our allies by sharing our material blessings with nations which share our fundamental beliefs, but we are against doling out money government to government, creating bureaucracy, if not socialism, all over the world.
We need true tax reform that will at least make a start toward I restoring for our children the American Dream that wealth is denied to no one, that each individual has the right to fly as high as his strength and ability will take him…. But we can not have such reform while our tax policy is engineered by people who view the tax as a means of achieving changes in our social structure….
Have we the courage and the will to face up to the immorality and discrimination of the progressive tax, and demand a return to traditional proportionate taxation? . . . Today in our country the tax collector’s share is 37 cents of -very dollar earned. Freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp.
Are you willing to spend time studying the issues, making yourself aware, and then conveying that information to family and friends? Will you resist the temptation to get a government handout for your community? Realize that the doctor’s fight against socialized medicine is your fight. We can’t socialize the doctors without socializing the patients. Recognize that government invasion of public power is eventually an assault upon your own business. If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government, recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he’ll eat you last.
If all of this seems like a great deal of trouble, think what’s at stake. We are faced with the most evil enemy mankind has known in his long climb from the swamp to the stars. There can be no security anywhere in the free world if there is no fiscal and economic stability within the United States. Those who ask us to trade our freedom for the soup kitchen of the welfare state are architects of a policy of accommodation.
They say the world has become too complex for simple answers. They are wrong. There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right. Winston Churchill said that “the destiny of man is not measured by material computation. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we are spirits-not animals.” And he said, “There is something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.
Leaving Reagan’s speech there, are we really doing all we can to save America? Or are we letting it become the “last great stand on earth,” to disappear into the dustbin of history? Think hard on this one before you answer. Cause if you don’t, I think you don’t know what you are asking for. We are again at that time for choosing as Reagan so greatly said.
Are we going to allow the leftists to continue pushing for Impeachment when there is nothing the president has done to deserve impeachment, or are we going to move forward and Choose. The question has been asked. What are we going to do?
God Bless America and our Troops
WE WILL NOT BE RULED!
