In these quickly darkening and degenerate days Americans are under siege from the Leftists – the Liberals and Progressive – who live within our nation but are no true part of it just as a cancer may be within the body but is not of the body.
The Left is quick to attack Americans. They do their worst to paint us as racists, bigots, selfish oafs, and anything other lie that they can dream up.
These viscous verbal assaults, along with the low-grade but consistent use of physical violence, are based upon fear, however, far more than they’re based upon the hate and/or loathing that the Left feels towards America and American.
One need look no further than to how these Liberals and Progressives, along with their minority tenants, responded to the town hall meetings during the run-up to ObamaCare or the Tea Party protests to see that this true. They are terrified of our anger because they have no recourse to it.
Americans need to either shrug off these slanders or embrace them as a motivation and a guide book to how to purge the body of America of the diseased tissue within it. To do otherwise is to become complicit in the crimes that these Leftists seek to commit against America, the Civilized World, and humanity as a whole.
The 19th century Dutch politician and theologian, Abraham Kuyper, said it better than I ever could.
When principles that run against your deepest convictions begin to win the day, then battle is your calling, and peace has become sin; you must, at the price of dearest peace, lay your convictions bare before friend and enemy, with all the fire of your faith.
— Abraham Kuyper

That is how it must be if we are to save America from depredations of the Leftists and prevent President Obama’s followers from enacting his plan to “fundamentally change America.” Battle must be our calling; peace has become a sin because that peace is paid for by loss and corruption of our nation and the future of our children and our children’s children.
To those who would name me “extremist” I say, paraphrasing Barry Goldwater, “Extremism in the defense of America is no vice; moderation in pursuit of American liberties is no virtue!”
Remember though that not all wars are fought solely with the open clash of men and arms. War, even within the mortal realm, is fought on many planes and in many ways, not all of which involve physical violence and many of which employ it in only small, targeted amounts. It is war nonetheless and American must steel themselves to offer up sacrifices of blood and treasure upon the alters of America if we are to have any hope of victory.
If we can do that though, I believe we will achieve victory for our progeny because our enemies, as evidenced by the nature of their fears, do not have the faith and the will to do similarly.
Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after they’re down. 😉
