America Is Still Conservative and Republican in 2015, Despite U.S Government’s Desires Otherwise

It maybe hard to believe that after 60 plus years of the silent push of Progressive Liberals to incrementally slide America socially to the political left, particularly after the past 7 years of Barack Obama’s desire to “fundamentally transform” this nation from our traditional conservative foundation, it appears that they may still have some work ahead of them.

I know with all of the recent court victories that have been chalked up be the left such as, the Supreme Court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act in 2013, the Obama Administration ending band on Gays serving openly in the Military, the most infamous one, the Supreme Court’s redefining marriage in 2013, and cases such as the Colorado Baker who was ordered to bake a gay couple a wedding cake by a State court, one would think that the Progressive Left ideology is supreme across the land. But, the exaggerated perception of the demise of the traditional conservative heart of America maybe far from reality.

Lets keep in mind that in 2012, Obama, Mr. Extreme Liberal himself, was on his way to his second reign, when ever the gay agenda was openingly presented to the American people, no matter the form, the American people voted it down in dramatic fashion. CBS reported in May of 2012 that in 32 States, comprising nearly 60% of the nation’s population, where the gay agenda was on a ballot the people voted it down. A Gallup Poll in January of the same year showed that 40% of respondents self-identified as conservative, 35% moderates [fence sitters], and only 21% liberals. It is no wonder that the Progressive Left has to use the Courts and coercion to redefine societal laws to get their agenda imposed on the American majority.

Time and time again, when the citizens of the United States and the people of America have been asked to chose between the values of the left or the right, they have chosen the right. Much to the alienation of the Progressives and the Political Elite, particularly the Federal Republican Party heads. The Party most identified as the champion of traditional American values, the Republican Party, have dominated every Congressional and State General Election since Mr. O’s reelection. In the 2014 Congressional Elections the Republicans smacked down the Democrats and gained more seats in the House than since the 1920’s and retook the Senate. And it didn’t get any prettier for the leftist agenda in the heartlands that day neither as Vox.com reported, “Republicans now control state government outright in at least 24 states, one more than they did before the election. They control at least 66 of 99 state legislative chambers nationwide. And they cut the number of states with total Democratic control from 14 to seven — the lowest number since the Civil War.” Even voters in long-standing blue States of Illinois-Obama’s adopted State-, Maryland, and Massachusetts voted for a change course. Was this a grand show of support for the values and social ideology of Mr. O and his Party? Not in the slightest. Newmax.com answered that question with a heads-up to not only Democrats, but Republicans when reported, “Anti-abortion, pro-family values Republicans who didn’t mince words when it came to stating their views won — and those who ducked taking a bold position on socially conservative issues lost.”

The voters of both the U.S Citizenry and the American populace spoke loudly again in this year’s off-season Elections by saying NO! to the leftist/socialist agenda and gave the Republicans even more or a mandate to change course for the sake on that the nation’s posterity. Kentucky elected its first Republican Governor in 2 decades, in Matt Benin along with its first Black-American State-wide official as his running mate, Jenean Hampton. His election solidly place the whole south in the hands of the Republican Party. The people of Virginia tightened the leash on its new Democrat Governor by increasing Republican seats in its legislature. And on the same evening the people of Houston stumped a ballot proposal by the LGBT to carve out a special protections, outside of those already recognize in the Constitution, and would have given anyone claiming to be transgender the ability to go into the bathroom of the opposite sex. But the Republican Party Elites at the federal level inexplicably propagates the leftist agenda.

A June 2014 survey by Pew Research Center again edified that in reality America is conservative – 56%, fence sitters – 33%, and everyone else liberal. After the Great Society, the New Deal, and Obamanation, America’s is still conservative at heart. The people of the several states have spoken unequivocally and with no silent reservation. Over 60% of Americans believe America is going down the wrong track, according to a recent Rasmussen Poll, and we are hungering for a politician and Party to boldly echo our voices and bring us back on to the right track. Not for the sake of the generations of the yesterday or today, but for those of tomorrow.

The only question is with all of the Establishment Media, the government educational system, the Entertainment Industry, and the Progressive Libs, on both sides of the isle in the federal government, will they succeed in convincing or conforming us, the ideological majority, to accept that there is no absolute right and wrong, that there is no moral and immoral, that lie is now truth, that there is no real Truth? Can they have us accept that the ideology of a group that comprises less than 20% can set an agenda and path for the nation that is repugnant to the traditional values and beliefs to the majority?

The first rule in Saul Alinsky’s book Rule for Radicals states, “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” The reason that Progressive Left has to use lies, coercion, and deception, and move its agenda in the shadows is because it can not win in the light. This is why it targets the young. It was Lenin, the Father of Communism/Socialism, who stated, Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”

America is the one nation where the Founders codified that power comes from the people, from the governed. We have the power to choose to be silent or speak boldly, to choose anarchy over order, servitude over freedom, and chose desecration over righteousness. Will the silent majority, the conservatives and just half of the fence sitters, of the several states voices be risen in time to defeat America’s radical transformation of our social foundation before it is too late? Our nation’s great Founders promised that we would always have a Republican form of government, but it is up to each of us to guarantee it for ourselves and our posterity.

Conformity Of Thought Continues To Erode America’s Fundamental Freedoms Unabated

Pope Benedict XVI said during an Italian Bishop’s Conference in 2010, “that we need to be more critical of the information we get from the Web … that Net surfers ought to be wary of the “dangers of conformity, of control, of moral and intellectual relativism, which can already be recognized in the decline of critical spirit.” Was he ever speaking the truth on that.

After the most recent dust-up over the recorded conversation of the Owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, Donald Sterling, that may cost him not only banishment from the league, over $2 million in fines, but being forced to sale his team, that he has owned since 1981. All because he made some extremely insensitive and bigoted remarks regarding Black-Americans and their relationship with his “girlfriend”, that were made very public. Though I am certainly not condoning or defending Mr. Sterling, what I am questioning seriously is the circumstances surrounding all the commotion. I too question the extreme rush of public persecution, via the 24 hr Media complex, of someone who made statements that were meant to be private, that did not directly hurt anyone, threaten their lives, liberties, nor property, that which he is being accused. But yet, it is an emotionally charge public, whipped-up by the Establishment Media, that seeks to threaten his property-the L.A Clippers. As indefensible as what he was recorded to have said, was this the first time that he has uttered such remarks, displayed such actions or mannerism? Public records say no. Is he the only owner of an American sports team who may harbor such views or opinions? I bet you not. So even the most passive observer should question, why him? Why now? And why in such a public manner? And why is there no effort to comprehensively educate not only him and people like him with similar views, but the public at large, of the real underline issues that causes such mistrust and fear of people who may be of a different ethnic, political, gender, or philosophical persuasion. There seems to be a rush to public crucify anyone of a particular sect in our society who simply have a different point of view and or opinion.

Just as in other recent emotionally charged public executions of individuals for simply what they say or have said or expressions such as, Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, Ex Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, and in even less publicized suppression of seemingly intolerable expression such as, American students not being allowed to wear the Stars and Strips during Cinco De Mayo…in California, a bakery was forced to close for refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex couple, and most of all any expression of displeasure or indifference with Mr. Obama or his policies its racist. There are just some actions, speech, and expressions that just will not be tolerated. But interestingly, it only seems to favor the politically liberal progressive ideology. It’s similar to Pavlov’s Dog Experiment, where we as a nation are being conditioned to react to certain stimuli strictly based on emotional triggers.

Van Jones has admitted to being an out-right communist, he gets appointed as a “Czar” for Mr. Obama and then gets a job on CNN and Al Sharpton has called Caucasians “Crackers”, he gets several jobs on MSNBC. No one in the Media says anything. Mr. Obama hangs an ornament of former Communist China leader Mao on the nation’s Christmas Tree his first year in. Barely a peep is heard. A lesbian JUDGE refuses to officiate a heterosexual marriage. No 24 hr uproar by the Establishment Media. Senator Reid in 2008 said, that Mr. Obama was electable because he was “light-skinned” and has “no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” The Media was on snooze. And lets not forget Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the longtime pastor and mentor of Mr. Obama for many years, has said some very insensitive and some would say bigoted things towards America and Caucasians. Yet the Media shows no interest in learning more about his rational, and even more important his relationship with the man who is now in the seat of the Presidency of the United States?. Huumm… Really? Do we as a nation now only view morality and right and wrong through the prism of political correctness or color of skin, sexual persuasion, and political persuasion, rather than conscious?

Why is it that in today’s America those who have a conservative political and social point of view fear having their views known and expressed?  Why is it that just the mention of Fox News draw laughter and groans from audiences on late nite TV shows?  and why is it that conservative points of view being suppressed from college campuses?

The very disturbing path that this nation now finds itself is now even being voiced by members of the entertainment complex such as comedian Rob Schneider when he said during a recent CBS Chris Stigall interview,“Democracies don’t end well. We are sliding very fast towards fascism. It’s an ugly kind of thing. There’s this kind of mob mentality that we have to be careful of … There’s a polarization that’s happening…I do think you look can look at government and go, ‘Wow, it is out of control now,’ and if you do criticize or tend to be not directly along a liberal stand, you can get murdered.” Wow! If a comedian is boldly voicing such view points imagine what others in the entertainment industry are thinking and saying in private.  Lets keep in mind that we are talking about the actions of the man who sits in the seat of the Presidency of the United States and the future of a nation that was created for free people to never fear expressing opposing points of view regarding the government.

We now live in a nation guided by a man who has since being placed in the Oval Office has truly worked to fundamentally change our country by aggravating our differences and suppressing and demonizing anyone who may oppose his agenda or policies. Under his reign, to have an opposing view of his extreme liberal progressive policies or point of view can no longer be simply graded on the basis of difference of opinion or beliefs, but race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual persuasion. Free expression and speech is being suppressed if it is in any way indifferent to that of the government. This is most disturbing to those who care in the slightest not just for the America of those of us over the ages of 45, but for those that are coming after us.

Just look at what is happening in Great Briton Paul Weston, chairman of Liberty GB, was making a speech that included remarks made by Winston Churchill that was not flattering of Islam.  Someone construed his speech as insensitive and complained causing up to 7 policemen to come and arrest Mr. Weston there on the spot to silence him. The political liberal progressive agenda has made conservative groups in our nation such as the TEA Party, the philosophy of the nation’s Founders, and anyone who dares to share such views, marked for extinction from public view.

It’s not a matter of whether I agree with what someone like Mr. Sterling, Mr. Robertson, Mr. Eich, Rev. Wright, Mr. Jones, or anyone else may say or expressed opinions. But that I am, as an American, is free to disagree with them without fear of being punished due to governmental polices or conformation of the nation’s spirit.  Alexis de Tocqueville said prophetically of the dangers of conformity of thought, After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.” and 1930’s Supreme Court Chief Justice Evan Hughes said truthfully, “Our institutions were not devised to bring about uniformity of opinion; if they had we might well abandon hope. It is important to remember, as has well been said, ‘the essential characteristic of true liberty is that under its shelter many different types of life and character and opinion and belief can develop unmolested and unobstructed.”

The choice is ours.

Mozilla’s CEO Firing Due To His Position On Same-Sex Is Further Evidence Of Brown Shirt-Like Silencing Of Opposing Points Of View

The lightening quick resignation/firing of newly hired Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich is only the latest disturbing sign of the Progressive Liberal’s publicly execution of anyone who dares to claim opposition to their point of view.  What was the crime that meant that his head should be put on display to forewarn any others who dare to come down his path of free expression?  He contributed $1000 to California Proposition 8, that dared to declare that marriage should be defined as between a man and a woman.  Shut da front door!!  Oh by the way, the measure passed overwhelming, and was only rejected by a grossly overreaching Federal Circuit Court declaring that the voices of the people does not matter regarding matters that it [the government] wants to promote.

But this is not the first time in history in which the government sought to silence descending or opposing points of view.  Remember throughout Nazi Germany, with the SS Brown Shirts, and totalitarian/communist nations, such as China and North Korea, where friends, family members, and coworkers are literally turned into government informants, and the citizens are conditioned to self-sensor their actions and words so as not to appear out of step with the conformist population and suffer the wrath of the government.  To the point that hardly anyone dares to speak publicly against the actions or motives of the government or whatever the current politically correct attitude is of the time. Even in the Bible, the story of King Nebuchadnezzar and  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, where the king mandated everyone bow down and willfully submit to his wishes and to be blindly worshiped, or violators would be cast in a burning furnace. When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego openly refused his demands, they were arrested and thrown into the burning furnace for all others to take notice if they too dared disobey the kings demands or wishes.

History has shown us that one of the first things that a tyrant, or a government that seeks to rule of its citizens, is to suppress and or control speech and the flow of communication amongst the people.  And the Founders of this great nation were all too conscious of such tragic episodes in history.  So they placed the freedom of speech as the very first Amendment to the Constitution for the united States of America.  Ironically, it was placed right along with restraining the government from interfering in the free exercise of a citizen’s religious.  At the end of the day, the free expression of religion, particularly that of Christendom, is what all of this dust up is about.  Just as in the Phil Robertson’s, of the A & E Duck Dynasty Reality TV show, brouhaha  over his personal belief that marriage is defined in the Bible as being between a man and a woman.  Period!  We are supposed to be fruitful and multiply, i.e., to procreate according to the Bible.  And though I’m not a biology whiz by any measure, two men nor two women can procreate.  But since the end game is to fundamentally transform this nation into something that it was never designed to become, to detach it, and it’s people, from its Christian foundation, any semblance or representation of Christendom has to abolished from public view and of any relevance.

In order to carry out this grand deception, freedom of speech has to be contorted, suppressed, manipulated, and or extracted, except when it promotes the governments needs,and the truth to made into a lie.  If the government says that a woman can correctly raise a child absent a man, than anyone else who says otherwise is now wrong.  If the government says that the Negro people are inferior to Caucasians and should be made subservient to them, anyone who says otherwise is wrong.  If the government says that Christendom should be detached from the lives of the citizenry for the sake of not “offending” someone, than anyone else who says otherwise is wrong.  And if the government mandates that marriage shall now be defined openly to include those of the same sex, than anyone who does not bow to that way of thinking is now wrong.  And the best way to infuse compliance throughout the population is a public lynching, execution, or burning in a furnace for the populace to be warned of the consequences of noncompliance.  It does not matter of what political party’s affiliation that prescribes such policy.  It only matter if such policy is designed to encourage more freedom, or less freedom.

Tyranny does not have to come via direct brute force, but by gentle coercion and the redefining of truth and right.  Today truth and right is being redefined under the guise of “tolerance”.  Particularly during the past 6 years or so, to publicly show favor of anything traditionally American, whether it be our language, our history, our flag, our laws, customs, values, or religious principles, has been redefined as being intolerable in defense of that of anothers.  Conservative political commentator Erick Erickson truthfully stated, “Evil Preaches Tolerance Until It Is Dominant, Then Seeks to Silence Good.”

True freedom is defined, “The quality or state of being free: as the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action.”  The Founders knew all too well the crucial importance of the people being able to speak freely amongst each other, to be able to disseminate information without fear of government reprisals, manipulation, coercion, or intimidation.  That is why a free and unadulterated press was also placed in the first Amendment.

If we began to self-censor what we say or how we communicate to each other to the point that we only publicly display actions or say things simply because its what others want to see or hear, it stifles freedom and opens the way for government to come off its leash.  1700’s French author and writer, Voltaire, famously said, “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.”  The freedom of speech does not shield you from being offended or having bad things said to you.  I remember back in the day, there was a saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, words will never hurt me.”  As an individual though I may not like what you say or do, or the manner by which chose to act, I can not stop you by force for speaking nor acting in any way.  But, the government can, whether it be directly, via standing near you with his hand on his gun, or indirectly, via public policy enactments, laws, or decrees.  So long as one is not infringing upon another’s right to his of her life, liberty, or property/pursuit of happiness, it should not manner.  We have gotten to a disturbing point in this country that we a self-censoring our thoughts so as not to commit a crime.  Founder Ben Franklin so warned us, “Without freedom of thought there can be no such thing as wisdom; and no such thing as public liberty without freedom of speech.”

The choice is ours.
