It is very obvious within my sphere of Conservative friends around the country that people are awakening to what is happening within the Beltway. We chat with each other on Facebook and share Tweets on Twitter. It seems like we are “preaching to the choir,” but actually we have formed the “New Media,” along with hundreds of Conservative bloggers, Internet TV shows, Internet newsletters, radio talk shows, television talk shows and even movies. The Democrats call it “propaganda” and call us parrots, just repeating what we hear and see.
I guess it has not occurred to them that we are independent and critical thinkers who do our own research and report with accuracy and truth. We often use videos and audio to replay their own words to reveal their lies.
Shortly after President Obama took office, Rush Limbaugh said he did not want Obama to succeed as president. Horrors! The mainstream media went crazy and began broadcasting Rush’s comments as being anti-American. How dare he say such a thing! What Rush was saying is that he did not want Obama to succeed because of his leftist agenda.
“Look, what he’s (Obama) talking about is the absorption of as much of the private sector by the US government as possible, from the banking business, to the mortgage industry, the automobile business, to health care. I do not want the government in charge of all of these things. I don’t want this to work….I need four (words): I hope he fails….” Everybody thinks it’s outrageous to say. Look, even my staff, ‘Oh, you can’t do that.’ Why not? Why is it any different, what’s new, what is unfair about my saying I hope liberalism fails? Liberalism is our problem. Liberalism is what’s gotten us dangerously close to the precipice here. Why do I want more of it? I don’t care what the Drive-By story is. I would be honored if the Drive-By Media headlined me all day long: ‘Limbaugh: I Hope Obama Fails.’ Somebody’s gotta say it.”
I believe that all of us, as proud Americans, want to give our president a shot at succeeding in office, because if he succeeds, we all reap the rewards.
What does Obama’s election to the office of President of the United States say about a nation with a history of racism? Didn’t it give you just a brief moment of being proud of how far we have come since the Civil War even for a slight moment? Yes of course–but then we were all snapped back into reality of what this man really wanted to do.
After hearing various campaign promises in 2006 and 2007 by then Senator Barack Obama, a lot of us began to sit up and take notice that this man’s campaign rhetoric was definitely not what America needed or wanted. For some, the choice might have been the difference between a Democrat and a Republican; for others, it was a liberal vs. a RINO (Republican in Name Only). But for a whole lot of us, his message was frightening. He was not a “Democrat”, he was, and has proven to be very FAR left. Dare we say a Socialist? Dare we say Communist? Gasp!
I have a lot of great black friends that I adore. Some of them voted for Obama, others didn’t and since 2008, some of those relationships have cooled to say the least. I have been called a bigot and a racist by people I’ve had 30 year friendships with, and I am far from being either of those names.
I am not alone. The entire Tea Party–and basically anyone who doesn’t like Obama’s policies–have been called racist by the mainstream media.
When Obama said “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming America” I did a double take, but little did any of us know the reality of what was to come.
Now we are $16 trillion dollars in debt and this administration has gone 36 months without a budget.
When it became really obvious that Obama wanted to transform us into a country of people dependent upon the government, that turned a lot of apathetic Republicans and Independents (and maybe a few Democrats) into a ball that caught fire and kept rolling until it exploded into a sea of activism like I’ve never seen in my 45 plus years of being in politics.
Just a few years ago, we saw the Tea Party and other Conservative groups rise up to defend our great country against encroaching Socialism. These groups are not various factions; we are one gigantic and tightly united group of gravely concerned Americans. We had great victories in 2010, and we are continuing our fight to take back our country, despite the media’s attempt to diminish our existence.
Between now and November 6, there will be Tea Party and GOP rallies held all across the country. Please check with your local Tea Parties or your local GOP campaign headquarters; search the Internet to find rallies in your area. Even in the most liberal of cities, rallies will be taking place throughout September and October.
I am personally excited about and will be attending three October rallies in the Los Angeles area:
- October 7, 2 to 6 p.m., Federal Building in Westwood, Wake Up America 2012
- October 20, 12:00 p.m., Nationwide, Rage Against the Media, CBS Television City, 7800 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles (Also please organize and gather at a network television studio in your area!)

As California PolitiChick, Anita Gunn, recently wrote for PolitiChicks.tv: “The pundits have a vested interest in pretending this race stays close even if it’s not. The demand for airtime keeps the price high and lines many pockets. Plus they have a vested interest in keeping ‘their guy’ in office.”
