Calls to Arms in an Alarming Time

| Comments (0)

Our country is moving at a dizzying pace right now, patriots and usurpers running neck and neck in the quest to claim the heart and soul of America. While Pelosi and el presidente scramble to “convince” the “undecideds” on health care before a just-announced Sunday vote, Press Secretary Gibbs sweats it out at his daily press briefing where for once he is asked genuine questions, and Jon Voight and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) call all freedom-loving Americans to march on Washington on Saturday….yeeehaaa!!

If you’ve been too busy to keep up, here’s the day in a nutshell:

“I am calling to all of you freedom-loving Americans to come once again to Washington D.C. to gather on the Capitol steps on Saturday, at 12 o’clock noon. We must come by the thousands….I’ll see you there!” – Jon Voight

“If you get a deal for you or your district, I’ve already instructed my staff and the staff of seven other Senators that we will look at every appropriations bill at every level at every incidence and we will outline it by district and we will associate that with the buying of your vote. So, if you think you can cut a deal now and it cannot come out until after the election, I want to tell you that that ain’t gonna happen. Be prepared to defend selling your vote.” –Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) in a warning to House democrats.

“…against the opposition of a clear majority of the American people, the Democrats in Congress and in this administration are prepared to ram through a $1 trillion government takeover of health care. Ignoring the will of the American people, twisting the rules of the House and the Senate into a pretzel, we are headed for a showdown this weekend. But I got to tell you, I like our chances….Let’s have the debate. A minority in Congress plus the American people equals a majority. America, we can win this fight!” –Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN)

And finally, a cry for help….

“If you don’t tie our hands, we will keep stealing.” – Congressman Tom Perriello (D-VA)

Exploding Heads and Ladylike Behavior

So, RINO-turned-democrat Arlen Specter (D-PA), tells outspoken conservative Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) to “act like a lady.”

I, in turn, invite all uppity Grizzly Moms “ferociously protecting home, family, cubs and country” (even when that means defying a flailing Senator’s definition of ladylike behavior), all anti-appeasement/non-bowing Americans, and even Senator Specter himself, to take a look at the following video:

The footage may indeed cause liberal head explosions, but that’s the risk you take when there’s a severe shortage of testosterone in the White House.

Keep Thinking That Way, Guys!

It seems that yet again the left has plenty of advice for the GOP.

Ignoring their own plummeting circulations, muckety-mucks at both Time and Newsweek have warned the GOP that they had better get their act together and ignore the nut-job right-wing extremists out there who dare to oppose the President that they – Time and Newsweek – and all their media comrades have worked to so hard to elect and fortify. Joining the chorus – and also in ratings peril — are Katie Couric and her counterparts from the network and (non-Fox) cable news world.

And now we hear from democratic congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who, in addition to blasting the GOP for viewing women as inferior to men, has told POLITICO that strong women like republican congresswoman Michelle Bachmann don’t “attract women to the party….I think they repulse women.”

And that just leaves women like me, and thousands of others like me, laughing our way to the polling booth.

What so many on the left fail to realize – or choose not to realize – is that what has been happening on the right since November, 2008, has nothing to do with the GOP. The issue here is conservatism, which is a belief system, not a party. And yes, conservatives, who can be found in any political party, are currently in the process of informing the GOP that they need to stop acting like liberals. They made this quite clear in last week’s elections, both at the gubernatorial level and at small local elections throughout the country.

But with more and more people nationwide – including those precious independents – identifying themselves as conservatives, this issue is far too frightening for left-wing media and government pundits to address. So they do what they always do: Criticize the GOP and vilify uppity conservative women.

For some reason, they think this tactic works for them. Fine, keep it up, I say. They will probably never recognize that they are simply exposing to us, their opposition, just how desperate and fearful they have become. So yes, keep it up. We love to hear it.   

Simply put, liberal women remain fixated on a victim mentality (without it, they, and all liberals, would be out of a job), and their belief in the inherent despicable and evil natures of men and America. Meanwhile the voices of conservative women are becoming some of the most powerful in the country. Rather than “repulsing” right-minded women – and men, too –women like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann and so many others, both in and away from the public eye, are energizing the American spirit, celebrating a conservative power fueled by independence, integrity, creativity and family bonds – and all with a positive outlook and a sense of humor. What sad creatures are the women who would find this “repulsive.”

Though efforts were made to silence them, conservatives, men and women alike, raised their voices during the summer’s town halls, on September 12th, and on election day last week. And it’s only the beginning.

So go on, keep dismissing us as GOP right-wing extremists. But remember: Misidentify your opponent, and you just make that opponent stronger.
