“CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN”
by Bob Russell, ©2013, blogging at Conservative Daily News
(Feb. 27, 2013) — This is an open letter to a new generation of founding fathers who I hope will stand up and “pledge their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” to the cause of a restored Republic of the United States of America. I am asking for leaders to lead; people with wealth, name recognition, and the trust of We the People to lead us into a revival of the liberty once known by citizens of America. It is time for a political party to represent the disenfranchised in both political parties and the Independents who have been disenfranchised for a very long time.
I speak to Allen West, Sarah Palin, Rand Paul, Jim DeMint, Ted Cruz, Ted Poe, Jason Chaffetz, Mike Lee, Ted Nugent, Glenn Beck, Kelsey Grammer, Bruce Willis, Jon Voight, Donald Trump, Thomas Sowell, Herman Cain, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Neil Boortz, Dr. Benjamin Carson, Pastor John Hagee, Pastor James Manning, and many others who just don’t come to mind right now. You have the money, the name recognition, and the respect of the 67% of We the People who identify as TEA Party members or sympathizers. I know there must be Democrats who are fed up with the Marxist tilt of their party also.
We have a plethora of people, black, white, red, yellow, and a few polka-dotted ones who are ready and willing to work to elect conservatives but are lacking in leadership. Neither political party represents the majority of, or even a plurality of, American citizens. Both parties pander to the fringe on the left, the moochers and looters who live their lives with their hands out and/or the military industrial complex that simply makes money off of war.
Politicians in both parties ignore the two-thirds of We the People who make this nation work. Corruption is rampant and neither political party has any intention of changing the status quo. They make their fortunes and live a life of luxury off of the sweat of common people who just want a chance to be successful and become wealthy also.
The founders gave everything they had to forge a nation based on freedom and personal responsibility, with a focus on helping each other when in need. Many of them came out the other side destitute but free. There are millions of Americans just like me who have a desire to live free yet find ourselves condemned to voting for the lesser of two evils, evils that are working together behind the scenes to subjugate and enslave us.
The Democrat Party has been full-fledged Marxist for many years now and the Republican Party is running as fast as they can to catch up with them. John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Eric Cantor, Jeb Hensarling, John Cornyn, Orin Hatch, and the other RINO’s have not in the past, do not now, nor will they ever represent We the People who have conservative values. They make huge promises to get our votes, then spit in our faces as soon as they get into office.
I wrote a blog article not too long ago reminding people of the promises John Boehner made in 2009/2010. He has never fulfilled any of them, instead minimizing the influence of the TEA Party in 2010 and blaming us for the losses in 2012. Karl Marx Rove has declared war on TEA Party conservatives and all but called us “enemies of the state.” While he has been forced to grovel a bit, we all know he meant what he said and will stab us in the back every chance he gets.
The New World Order globalists running both political parties despise everything our founders stood for, and so in turn despise everything I stand for as a conservative. We the People need not just one, but scores of heroes who will stake their fortunes on our future. The founders did it and won a great crusade that established a freedom and a nation based on God-given rights that has been the “shining city on a hill” (John Winthrop) for 237 years.
Republican governors are succumbing to the allure of millions of tax dollars to implement Obamacare in spite of the opposition of voters. John Kasich in Ohio and Tim Scott in Florida are but two prime examples of Republican politicians who were supported by TEA Party conservatives, got elected behind that support, and are now turning their backs on the promises they made and the people who supported and elected them. There are more, including Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, who publicly denounces Obamacare but works feverishly behind the scenes trying to implement it before We the People can stop it. This duplicity is treason in my mind, and an offense that should be punished by impeachment at the very least.
During the 2012 campaign I worked with a man named John Albert Dummett Jr. who was running for president as a Republican. John is just like me; a nobody who cares about his country and the legacy left behind by such great men as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, Thomas Paine, Nathan Hale, and countless others who risked so much for liberty. John Dummett is in this same class but doesn’t have the national stage of those I mentioned earlier. His platform is one that conservatives everywhere can get behind. He is a well-educated and well-spoken man who can stand with anyone when it comes to knowledge of our Constitution and the courage to “protect, defend, and uphold” same. He should be a part of a new creation also.
When you look at demographics you find that 40% of Americans are Republican, 40% Democrat, and 20% Independent. The TEA Party montage makes up 67% of We the People. If all 20% of Independents identify as TEA people there are still 47% that have to come from somewhere, namely both political parties. Two-thirds of anything is a winning proposition.
It is time for real “change we can believe in.” The outright lies and deceit of both political parties has reached a point that cannot be ignored by anyone who loves liberty. I am as much of a patriot as anyone but lack the financial resources and public stage to make the kind of difference that can be made by the rich and famous among conservatives.
We the People are here, looking for encouragement, direction, and confidence in a future as great as that established 237 years ago with the defeat of Great Britain and the ratification of our founding document, The Constitution of the United States of America.
You people have the financial resources to get a party started and the fame to garner support from millions of Americans desperately seeking leaders they can believe in and count on. If all of you and all of those other unnamed conservatives would band together with the various TEA Party factions, Freedom Works, and other organizations we could forge an unbeatable force for freedom that would rival the accomplishments of 1776. Will you pledge “your life, your fortune, and your sacred honor” to liberty? I have no fortune but will pledge my life, my talents, and my sacred honor to the cause. All I need is a direction and that isn’t available through the Republican Party.
I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
