This great country -- and I do mean EXCEPTIONAL -- is in the grips of a domestic enemy. Let's leave aside the politically correct platitudes and politeness for a moment and be honest. The left is the enemy to traditional American values of individual freedom, personal liberty and entrepreneurship.
They want to create a Nanny State, where the government runs your life. Health care is a big piece of this puzzle. Next will come the kind of car you drive, the light bulbs you use and which colleges you can go to. They want to tax and control every breath you take.
And make no mistake about it: the left is now firmly and fully in charge of the U.S. government. There is not a single (as in ONE) moderate or conservative Democrat in the U.S. Senate, and very few in the House. The White House is inhabited by Marxist revolutionaries -- and that includes the guy in the Oval Office.
We are being led by radicals.
That's the truth. And Democrats and Independents (and many so-called "Republicans") who voted for "Hope and Change" may feel hoodwinked, but the reality was there for all to see. The President of the United States is a Saul Alinksy operative with radical friends. That doesn't happen by accident. Americans liked the cut of the guys jib and the fact that decades of race-guilt could be slayed in a single pull of the voting lever, and so the nation took a leap into the great unknown.
Off a precipice, and into an abyss.
And then insult got added to the injury by putting the likes of Al Franken (hey Minnesota -- politics is not really a JOKE!) in the Senate, giving the left a massive majority and the 60 votes needed to ram home big-time change on a purely partisan basis.
And that's really the main message here: this is a President and a Congress that thinks that a straight party-line vote is democracy in action. There was no pretense of bipartisan accommodation or compromise, only a "shove it down your throat" Chicago-style politics. The left is so certain they are right that they simply don't care what YOU think.
We are in for a very rough ride. But it isn't hopeless. We can take back the House in 2010 and put Nancy Pelosi out to pasture. We can defeat Harry Reid in Nevada and give him the good old Tom Daschle treatment.
We can change this in 11 months.
But to do so, you have to get OFF THE COUCH.
You have to start giving -- in money, time and energy -- to Republican candidates. Money is the life's blood of politics, and to win in 2010, conservatives need to raise cash. And if you can't contribute money, then volunteer for a candidate. Stuff envelopes. Walk precincts. Host voter meetings in your living room.
We can't be passive. The enemy is organized, zealous and unbelievably vicious. We must parry their every thrust.
We can't afford to lose this country for another generation. Please do WHATEVER you can. I am working with a Republican Congressional candidate here in Colorado -- Diggs Brown. He's a very good man and a solid conservative.
Find someone -- anyone -- who you can support running for Congress in a swing district. That's the way we can change this -- by putting solid conservatives in office in 2010.
We must do more than complain. We must ACT!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
Let's make 2010 the year we TAKE BACK THIS GREAT COUNTRY!!
