For Downtrodden Conservatives – What We Do Now

with one comment

Well folks, the shutdown is over and we dodged the so-called default bullet.

I know many of you out there are sad, angry, irritated. We want to punch someone in the face over this. We want to scream and yell at all the “eaters” and “takers” out there who demand we surrender our liberties for their entitlement – and they are thankless ingrates who have no problem sponging off the system and hustling for what we work hard to give to our families. Believe me, I’m angry too. I wanted to print out a picture of Harry Reid, tape it to my heavy bag, and punch it until the paper was shredded, followed up by photos of GOP members for selling out and screwing up this whole thing.

But then, after talking to my wife, who is pretty upset over all of this, wondering, “what do we do now?”, well, I went to my chair and started thinking about all of this. She feels angry and betrayed, as we all do.  But it’s time to prepare for the next fight. That will take some wisdom.

1) Keep On Talking and Listening – We keep on going in the marketplace of ideas. Conservative ideas are good and pure and they work whenever we actually take the time to do them.  Now, don’t expect that the Mainstream Media is going to help – they are the soundboard for the Lib-crats – and there is no hope in changing them.

We won’t change the liberal mindset so long as we don’t have a message on which we all can get behind. Keep on tweeting, blog posting, and “Pass through the Grass” (yes, that sounds funny, but it’s a good slogan – “Pass through the Grass” means keep on talking to your friends, family, and co-workers (the grassroots). Don’t adopt talking points; instead, make the conservative message YOUR message. Integrate it into your thinking and speech and keep on talking.

We gotta stop preaching why liberal ideas are bad and focus on why conservative ideas are good. Do we even know?

Also, keep on listening and pointing out the failures of Obama and his left-wing libcrat Congress.  Continue holding Biden to ridicule. Continue holding the Administration accountable about Benghazi and the IRS scandals. Don’t let up.

2) Keep Resisting – We keep on resisting Government tyranny at every turn. Now I can’t tell you what to do, but I’ve decided to opt out of ObamaCare completely. I’m not signing up, I’m not buying in, and I’m not paying the IRS fee. ObamaCare requires seven million people signed into it for it to work.  I won’t be one of them. And maybe you might choose to not be either.

Now that won’t be easy, because I’ll have to be fiscally responsible and make sure I set money aside, in case something happens. But until they fix the system, I can’t afford the premiums. I have to do what is best for MY family, not someone else.

3) Enjoy Your Freedoms and Liberties – There is something to be said about someone who can continue to live in joy (something not easy for me) amidst pain, suffering, and hopelessness. We can continue to laugh at those angry liberals, drowning in their own misery, but the way I see it, the liberals spike a football every time we roll out our anger. They are overjoyed to see our sad or angry reactions. Don’t give it to them.

Enjoy your liberty and freedoms, because they are given to you by God, not government.

4) Pray and Ally with God – We pray and seek God’s will for all that we do. Remember, we’ll never get the liberals on our side, nor the RINO GOP’s who just want peace and love in Washington. But instead of getting people on our side, how’s about we surrender our will to God’s will and then, draw strength from that.

5) Remember your Reagan – Ronald Reagan taught many good things of how conservative government is supposed to work.  Thing is, Reagan didn’t have a Congress full of conservatives. He was a uniter – the “Great Communicator”. This is what we need to do, so here are some words of wisdom, from the Ol’ Gipper himself. for you:

  • Don’t speak ill of fellow Republicans (That’s going to be tough for us who are more allied with Tea Party values than the establishment)
  • If a Republican agrees with you 80% of the time, he’s your ally.
  • No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.
  • If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be one nation gone under.
  • There is nothing wrong with America that we, together, cannot fix.

Folks, it’s time we step up and remembered who we are, who we serve, and continue being Americans.
