Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.
In my 40+ years of living, I have to say that 2010 has been the leading light of my life due to the love of Country being expressed. I have never heard so many people talk about the Constitution and know what’s in it and can recite it :) . I have never seen a mass movement of people stand up for America. The TEA Party Movement was a catalyst for all types of Americans to express their discontent with the Ruling Class. Though much has been written about the psychology of the TEA Party what has not been understood is quite simply our love of Country. There is nothing shameful about Patriotism, though many liberals/progressives/communists/Marxists have spent my entire life trying to make it so. It is through the prism of time that I can see and I know you do as well that the Democrat Party was hijacked by the progressives as they infiltrated our schools, our local and federal government and set about to destroy the America that we love. They have removed God from the public square and instituted a secular progressive God (Government) to fill the void. That one action alone can most assuredly account for the decline in decency that has permeated our society. The TEA Party Movement was a natural extension of the pride that a majority of Americans have in America and had not shown itself since 9/12/2001. We were immediately assailed by the progressives as animals for desiring a direct response to ALL of those who would see our destruction. They made shameful and direct assaults on the President of the United States during a time of war and then expected us to shut up. They did one hell of a number on our psyche and we as a nation retreated. It is with great pride and affection that we recognized that way could no longer be the case. They forced our hand, they stole our freedoms and they took a direct hit on our souls and so we took the fight back to them.
America is counting on We The People of these United States of America to stand up and defend her against enemies foreign and domestic. On November 2nd 2010 the first shot in a battle for the very Country that is the beacon of hope for the world begins. This is a long and protracted battle, there will be wins and there will be losses but if we don't fight (vote) then we lose. It is not enough to get up and go about your day anymore as if nothing has happened because much has been done and much needs to undone. Michelle Obama said that "Barack will never let you go back to your lives as they were before" and in that she was correct. We Conservative/Traditional Americans can never go back because those in the progressive movement will continue to attempt to destroy our Country. We must be ever vigilant because evil never sleeps.
Much has been made of the "anger" of those on the rightside of history but I submit that it is not anger but determination that is the hallmark of the Conservative grassroots American. Alinsky could never have seen it coming because he and the progressives who feed off his work never anticipated Allegiance to Country as the defining factor in the souls of Americans. It never ceases to amaze me how little respect the left has for the power of the heart and soul of the American citizen, whether born here or legally attained citizenship. If they just looked at a group of people when they say the Pledge of Allegiance and see the serenity in their faces, they would understand perfectly. That type of love can never be contained for long.
I think the biggest lesson of 2010 will be that the pathetic race card has finally been rejected. I know of no one who thought that slavery was an upstanding attribute of America and the 50 years since the Civil Rights Act has shown the propensity of Americans to move forward. The President of the United States of America is a Black man, I don't think you can get much more satisfaction that the "ceiling" has been lifted than that. The richest woman in America is a Black woman, Black Americans are at every level of American life, from the poor to the richest and never again will we allow the left to be dismissive and deride this Country as a racist Country. Another group of Americans, Gay Americans enjoy freedoms not seen in a majority of nations around the world and never again will we allow those from the left to call us an intolerant nation. America affords everyone an opportunity that is here legally to be whatever their God given talent allows them to be. The streets of America are paved with gold for those who would get up and work towards their own economic security each and every day.
It is no small feat that which we are about to embark upon. I too thought after 2008 that we must be just a minority of the Country, that only those on the internet were Conservative and yet the TEA Party Movement has proven that to be a lie told by the media wing of the Democrat Party ie: the MSM. America is a center right Country that has been controlled by a center left government and since this Country belongs to us, WE ARE TAKING IT BACK!
