Ever since the murders in Benghazi, the topic of the military has been more popular in social media. Aside from the horrors our men faced in Syria, high-ranking heroes have been removed from their posts, forced to retire, lied about and heaven knows what else. Just months after SEAL Team IV killed Osama bin Laden, 15 of their members were killed in a mysterious helicopter crash. During a recent Army Reserve training class, a paper titled Religious Extremism was handed out. Top danger on the list? Evangelical Christians, and further down the list, Catholics. Eric Holder just defunded a Young Marines program because they mentioned the word “God”. President Obama found it necessary to give a speech in Germany about a further reduction in nuclear weapons while Russia laughs in his face. Surely China is delighted as well. Just days ago, we discovered that the Army will be cutting 10 brigades. We can’t even acknowledge there’s a war on radical Islam/terror! Frankly put, there’s a war on our military and it’s coming from our own government.
Rules for Conservative Radicals: How the Tea Party Movement Can Save America is a pocket sized, free book from Liberty Alliance. In it, authors Dr. David L. Goetsch and Dr. Archie P. Jones outline seven subjects, called strategies, that every American patriot should memorize. The object of the book is to enable Tea Party patriots and other conservatives to clearly articulate why things need to change. If we want to convince inactive conservatives and maybe even a few liberals why we’re right about an issue, we have to know and believe what we’re talking about! Strategy Six in Rules is called ‘Military Preparedness and a Strong National Defense‘. At the beginning of the chapter, it points out that Obama has mastered the Left’s new approach to the military: Praise loudly in public, but attack quietly in private. Why bother now? I’d bet the authors agree, with Obama in his second term with no one to answer to, he no longer hides his disdain for the military or his actions.
After the attacks on 9/11, America was brought together for the first time since the end of World War II. Rules says, “Liberals, conservatives and moderates pulled together in a show of patriotism.” In her 2005 book, The New American Revolution, author, radio host and political commentator Tammy Bruce wrote, “I contend September 11 was the beginning of America’s tipping point.” She added, “It became apparent that the Left’s decades-long effort to condition us to hate this country is failing,” (Bruce went on to remind readers that extremists still needed to be stopped). For that short, sweet time, we all felt…we knew, that America was the greatest country in the world and that no one could touch us. How far we’ve fallen from grace. Surely no one could predict that it would all be torn away by the election of one man. People that would ordinarily balk at the suggestion of decreasing our military, or bowing down to the demands of known enemies (e.g. Muslim Brotherhood) now condone any action by Barack Obama. The same people who protested the Patriot Act joyfully allow for its expansion and abuse under this president.
The actions in the first paragraph of this article are very telling. Rules points out the following as clear evidence of what the Left thinks of our military: 1) Their treatment of military personnel; 2) The new ‘Rules of Engagement’ forced on personnel (e.g. do not shoot unless someone is shooting at you, you must get permission to shoot, etc.); 3) The watering down of military training; 4) The propensity of cutting the military first when budget cuts must be made. The increased reliance on the U.N. is dangerous. The Liberal government is attempting to put our freedom on the line in an effort to wheedle the U.N. into every facet of our lives. China, radical Islam and very likely Russia, have no interest in peace. They want domination pure and simple. The Left can keep blowing sunshine up the wahzoo, but actions speak louder than words. In order to best articulate the need for a strong military and national defense, Rules offers several statements that are sampled here:
- People who hate America are bent on her destruction. They do not think like we think. They do not respond to reason. They respect only one thing: strength. Consequently, any lack of strength on America’s part invites mischief on their part.
- The world is filled with people who hate the United States and everything for which it stands. Many of these hate-filled fanatics are more than willing to lose their own lives if they can kill innocent Americans in the process. We must reject the naïve posturing of liberals who think it’s possible to sit down with those who despise America and talk reason.
- Reject all attempts by liberals and misguided moderates to balance the budget on the backs of the military. Politicians must take the gloves off the military and let it do what it is trained to do, and what’s necessary to protect America.
These points are by no means complete. As always, I cannot stress enough how important it is for patriots, Tea Party groups, 9/12 members and everyday Americans to get a copy of Rules for Conservative Radicals. You can get a free PDF copy right now, or pay only shipping and get a hard copy. While you’re at it, I strongly recommend that you also request your free copies of the pocket versions of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, Catechism on the Constitution and the Right Wing Handbook. You can even get them all together in a set. We all know the hard truth. We’re losing the fight for our freedom, our God and our Constitution…in other words, our Republic as we know it. If we can clearly articulate why we can’t lose this battle and how we can win, we can bring in more patriots to help the fight.
