Patriotism & Leadership

Patriotism & Leadership:

Joe Louis once said, “Everyone wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die”. Those words ring true to this day and apply to many in the conservative movement. Everyone wants America back, but no one wants to put in the work to make it so. There are thousands upon thousands of people registered on patriotic websites all over America, enough people, that if they all stood as one, the government would have to listen. But, half of those belong, solely to feel like they are doing something, some of the others will fax, email or write letters, some others will do all of that and pick up the phone, yet according to our Senators and Representatives, most won’t go to their office, and fewer still will go door to door, enlisting the aid of their neighbors to save America. Everyone wants to go to heaven, but no one is willing to die. This is not a call to death, this is a call to the leadership and those who lead but have no title, for it falls upon all of us to enlist and motivate the rest. Come with me if you want to be free.

“You can become a winner, only if you are willing to walk over the edge” pronounced Damon Runyan. No truer words have been spoken regarding winning and the leading of others. To win, you must be willing to go where others will not. To lead, it helps if you are not going there alone. Why is it that only 3% of the people in America, chose to fight for their independence? Why is it that those same numbers have fallen today? Part of it has to do with media. In the time of the revolutionary war, people stood in the street and rallied the people, newspapers printed the truth and the places of worship spread the word. In this world, the one we have created by being weak, asleep and lazy with our liberties, the media lies, the churches are afraid to speak out and even the American people are afraid to speak out. Look at your groups rosters, how many people do not use their real name? Why not? The government knows who you are if you are online. Are you ready to take the first step over the edge? Come with me if you want to be free.

Ed Howe said, “Instead of loving your enemies, treat your friends a little better”. We have spent many months arguing and fighting amongst ourselves, egos keeping patriot groups from forming effective coalitions, pride keeping us from seeing the other side in a conservative debate, and emotions getting in the way of progress. Never mind loving our enemies, for they hate us and always will. We must treat one another better, as true brothers and sisters in the fight for freedom, for if we do not, we shall surely lose this battle and our freedom. Rally behind those selfless enough to lead, and if you are a leader, do so out of selflessness, not for personal gain. Come with me if you want to be free.

Our fight, this fight, the fight to once again free America from the grips of those who would tax us and fail to represent us is a lot like fighting a pit bull. We must not stop fighting when we are tired, we only stop when the pit bull is defeated. As leaders, as conservatives, as Christians, as patriots, as Americans, we must rally together, ignoring our petty differences. We have but one true goal, taking back America from the hands of the Marxists, the jihadis and those that would have us become a third world country because of our past success. All of the other things on the agenda pale in comparison, for without freedom, without liberty, without our rights and our Constitutional Republic, nothing else matters. If we fail in retaining our freedom, we fail in all else we seek to do.

I will leave you with one more nugget to digest: Leaders are out in front, in the fray (think Patton), not in the rear, hiding behind a press secretary.
