It is a fortunate thing that the 2012 spirit was not around in 1776!
Had the spirit and courage of today been the norm then, we would never have seen any revolution. Only quiet submission! Anything, to keep from offending his majesty. Or, better put, "Mars George!"
How about the Texans in 1836. When reviewing their war for independence, it's a miracle that they didn't tell Santa Ana, "anything you say, boss!" Or, "lo siento, Mis Presendente! Es verdad nosotros loco y stupido!"
Many of our people simply can't see the forest for the trees! The Republic is gone. Finished! For anyone not believing such, let me introduce you to a fine piece of swamp land in Hendry County, Florida that you might want to purchase!
We have spent weeks hoping and praying that somehow, someway this current Chief Executive might remember that he didn't receive 80% of the votes in last months general election. There is evidence that he may not have won at all. But, assuming that he did, even his closest friends will admit that the result was anything but a landslide.
Because he never intended to work anything out. He won. He will make the most of it. If the rest of us don't like it, too bad! The president's conclusion is, he'll get his way. Nobody would dare challenge him. We are too set in our ways, too comfortable with the way thing are to do anything, save complain!
Is everybody "cool" with Communism? Evidently so. If we were not, there would be more people talking about the oncoming fate of our country. Maybe we have forgotten the horrors of the last century. Or perhaps, we just don't know or even care. History is boring to most people. Few sit around reading about Lenin, Stalin, Marx and Mao. It's unfashionable.
To be sure, there are millions of Americans who haven't given up. They see what's coming and have for some time. But where do we begin? A Constitutional convention? A third party? A recount of the votes? Disqualifying Barack Obama as President?
Fact is, the disenters are too divided to make a difference. We proved that last year. Even if the Republican party united in force, would there enough of it to win future elections? Maybe it's time to replace the GOP with something new and more inclusive.
Where do we find our role model? Texas? Maybe!
It begins with positioning. And positioning starts with the indentification of an adversary. Once accomplished, we can present our alternative. But what would that be?
Former Idaho Congressman, Curtis Bowers will introduce his sequel to Agenda- Grinding America Down., in 2013. For those who haven't seen the first documentary, please visit www.agendadocumentary.com
Congressman Bowers picks up with Agenda 21. Some ugly things surface. The ultimate goal of the environmental mevement is "global population control. " The final verdict: "Reducing the earth's population from seven million to one million." This is the ultimate agenda of the environmental movement!
Texas stands as proof that the individual states are better stewards of the environmental movement that Washington. Under Governor Rick Perry's watch, Texas has reduced mononitrogen oxides by 53%. The ozone levels have been reduced by 27%. That's a report card, ladies and gentlemen! Best of all,unlike the Washington plan, "euthanasia" is not part of the equation!
When our people become more aware of what is happening with certain states, they may be ready to look at these states and their leaders as alternatives fo Barack Obama. When you add Obama's possible ineligibility to the mix, you begin thinking, "what if we really have lost our country?"
Is America worth fighting for? The question is, "which America?"
This is the key distinction that we must make. We can look at our present state and accept a changing Ameirca that leans toward socialism and ultimately Marxism. We can forget about what built us and why we are different from any nation. We can look at countries like France and Greece and acknowledge that "this is the way things are and will be."
The alternate route is Texas. Can the rest of the nation view Texas as our role model. To be sure, Governor Perry harbors the same Americanism that his hero, Sam Houston held. But his 10th amendment perception is pure Jeffersonian. This frightens Republicans and Democrats who advocate a large Washington, D.C. based central government.
In essence, "practical conservatism versus theoretical conservatism.
For there to be any progress, we must decide who we are. Only then can we zero in on the enemy. Until then, we are nothing more than "armchair politicians." It will take courage and conviction to stop the advancing Marxism that has taken hold in the country. The best and perhaps the only strategy is to hit the opponents with everything that we have! After all, "the best defense is a good offense!"
Their achilles heel is their sordid environmental movement. If we can make the case that it's real objective is to reduce the earth's numbers, the "hope and change" that Barack Obama spoke of will then be defined as nothing short of a "Nazi" movement, disguised as something benign and just.
