You’re deeply upset by the way our country’s going, and in a few days there will be a national election. What will you do?
But first, what’s there to be upset about?
The party currently in power, the Democrats, has in recent years erased our southern border and imported Ebola into our country by refusing to ban incoming flights from African countries where the disease is running wild. Banning the flights would conflict with their open borders, citizens-of-the-world ideology.
They’re making your health insurance premiums go up more than you can afford to pay, as part of their project for a complete government takeover of the healthcare industry. Obamacare was only the first step.
They intend to grant “executive amnesty”—just try to find that in the Constitution—to unspecified millions of illegal aliens, all at once, thus voiding our immigration laws and laying the groundwork for the creation of a new electorate that will give them a license to do anything they please, as long as the welfare checks keep coming. That this will depress the national economy beyond repair means nothing to them.
They have, in just six years, instilled a culture of lawlessness within the government, abandoning their sworn duty to uphold the law.
They have pursued a foreign policy whose only recognizable objective seems to be to weaken our country and embolden her enemies. Other than that, it is no policy.
They have broken the law by using agencies of the government, the IRS and the NSA, for the political purpose of disabling the opposition and stifling dissent.
They have worked tirelessly for the erosion of traditional marriage and the family, devoting a whole month to the celebration of homosexuality and other moral aberrations.
They have purposely worked to poison race relations, every chance they get.
They abuse us, lord it over us, disregard our wishes, and make no secret of their ambition to “fundamentally transform America” into God knows what.
Don’t you want to punish them for that?
Don’t you want to stop them?
There is only one peaceful, lawful way to punish them, and that’s to vote them out of office.
The problem with our political system today is that our leaders have lost their fear of us. They see us as docile, defenseless cattle to be driven as they please.
Don’t you want to make them afraid to do the things they do?
Forget the Republicans. Even though the GOP leadership is riddled with thieves, fools, and, above all, cowards, the Republicans are not the issue.
This election is not about giving power to Republicans.
It’s about taking the power away from Democrats before they can pound the last nail into America’s coffin. It’s about showing our leaders that they can’t do these things to us and get away with it.
But if enough disenchanted voters just stay home, or vote for third party candidates who can’t possibly win, the Democrats will get two more years to finish us off.
Yes, there are plenty of prominent Republicans who are a waste of space. So what? It’s not about them. The point is not to give them power, but to infuse a healthy fear of the electorate in whomever has the power. That can only be done one party at a time; and this is the time to do it to the Democrats, because they’re the ones who are doing it to us.
I pray that in this election, God will move the American people to a massive repudiation of our country’s statist power-brokers, massive enough to scare the Republicans onto the right path. The TEA Party needs more time to grow.
If the Republicans are not sufficiently scared to mend their ways, then the next step is to shatter them in the very next GOP primary.
We have to work with what we have, and what we have, whether we like it or not, is the two-party system. What we have today is a desperate need to stop the march of statism, of lawlessness, of cultural decay. That march is led by Democrats. Running them out of office must be our chief concern.
Our leaders must be taught to fear us. They have lost all motivation to consult our wishes. “I’ve got a pen, I’ve got a phone, I’ve got 51 votes in the Senate, and that’s all I need to do anything I want” must never again be allowed to be the motto of a U.S. president.
Self-righteousness feels good; but if all it does is to empower the wicked, it is no more a virtue. It is only pride.
