As I read stories and comments about Conservative/Christian groups being labeled as “racists” and “dangerous” by the Liberal media, Progressive politicians (R’s and D’s), Liberal trolls, and many uninformed voters alike, I have to chuckle. Having a rather successful blog, I can’t count how many times I’ve been called a “hater” or a “radical” just for sharing my Conservative perspective on current issues. If these people only knew my heart, they would think twice before they bear false witness against me. If these people only knew how boring my life actually is as a so-called “domestic terrorist”…To them, I’m apparently living the exciting life of “wild-eyed anarchist” who is “plotting to overthrow the government”. Little do they know I’m a stay at home mom, inundated with piles of laundry, football practices, doctor appointments, PTO meetings, grocery shopping, school projects, plumbing problems, and utility bills.
Oh, and yes, I do happen to be a woman who loves her God, her family, and her country, and I’m not afraid to show it, either. If that defines me a “terrorist” then so be it.
As Mark Twain once so eloquently stated, “In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.”
These days, it does cost something to be a Patriot when you’re speaking out against our cultural moral cesspool; our nation’s 17 trillion dollar debt; all the political corruptions, and the policies that are marching our nation toward tyranny. After all, as a mom, all these issues directly affect my own family. It’s worth the risk of being mocked, persecuted, and slandered by all the Saul Alinsky-ites.
In fact, if I’m not speaking out, then I’m really not fighting on behalf of my two young children. As a parent, I have a moral obligation to use my soapbox, the ballot box, and whatever measures necessary to preserve liberty for my posterity. If that makes me a “threat” to the administration, the mainstream media, and Liberals alike, then again, so be it.
Apparently, the latest “domestic terrorist” alert is now warning U.S. Army soldiers not to associate with or donate to the likes of people like me–God-fearing folks who love our independence, who cherish our U.S. Constitution, and oppose Washington’s socialist policies. According to the “powers that be,” I’m more of an “enemy” to our nation than an Al Qaeda member. As I stand here, helping my son with his book report and cooking dinner for my family, I once again chuckle.
