The shift to seeming unaccountability for our President's second term has given our enemies a certain frenzied energy to move us quickly to do their bidding before our conservative heart has had a chance to raise her head, let alone recover from her recent beating. I won't site examples, you all read the blogs and know what's happening.
I feel a strong need to reaffirm our conviction to our nation's central idea. I think the majority voters swung for their feelings over their understanding in this election. This is a first, perhaps. They used to call President Ronald Reagan the great educator because he taught us what every American should have known. He did it without lecturing.
He taught us that standing up for America also means standing up for the God who blesses our land. We still look for a spiritual revival, wherein traditional values are reflected in public policy. In order to see victories in our future, we need to start by defending our right to worship God as we see fit.
President Reagan said, "To those who cite the first amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions and everyday life, may I just say: The first amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny.”
“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."
This skirmish was lost, but we aren't through. There's no time for wound-licking. You have power in every letter you write, every stand you take, every prayer voiced or unvoiced. As Clint Eastwood recently reminded us, "This is our Country". Its worth fighting for.
