We all probably felt uneasiness over the election results last night.
President John Kennedy uttered the famous line to the nation during his inaugural address, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”
President Barack Obama’s message to America is, “Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your country can do for you!”
Obama’s first term has been a nice preview of what’s to come: stagnating or deteriorating economic conditions, a lower standard of living (except for political crony-types), and a growing army of individuals feeding at the public trough which some of us not-so-affectionately call the “Free ‘Stuff’ Army”.
What can we do that’s constructive, aside from awaiting the pending economic and social storm, along with a continued attack on our nation’s founding principles?
My recommendation is to network with your fellow freedom-loving conservatives. Build relationships with them for support, including emotional and financial.
Don’t let the left demonize and denigrate a fellow freedom-loving conservative. Instead, support your ideological ally and shine the light of truth and openness on the left’s demagoguery.
If you see a conservative under attack, step up to support them aggressively. As an example, Kurt Hofmann over at the Gun Rights Examiner was viciously attacked by a fringe, far left anti-gun paid shill in an effort to stifle dissemination of the truth. Guns Save Life spoke up in support if Mr. Hofmann and attacked his tyrannical detractors for not only working to deny all of us our Second Amendment rights, but also our First Amendment rights as well.
No Lawyers – Only Guns and Money also spoke up in support of Mr. Hofmann (Why Does CSGV Feel So Threatened By A Blogger In A Wheelchair?) as did some other pro-civil rights activists.
By financial support, I mean go out of your way to do business with worthwhile companies with conservative owners who support your civil rights.
We’ve long advocated the “No Guns, No Money” cards for businesses posting against carrying lawfully possessed firearms. I’m suggesting we expand this soft boycott to businesses who may not post against guns in their establishment, but through words and deeds support politicians who would disarm us.
Ben Franklin said at the signing of the Declaration of Independence, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”
By hanging together, we will weather this storm. Those who fail to hang together will, as Mr. Franklin said, will be hung out to dry individually.
Basic mathematics tells us we can’t continue down this unsustainable path that Barack Hussein Obama and his allies have taken us.
When the collapse happens, save your charity and your compassion for those who deserve it and shun those who eschew personal responsibility for their health, education and welfare.
These are constructive things you can do with your anxiety, and perhaps irritation over the election outcome.
The good news is that in less than four years and three months, Obama and his ilk will be leaving office.
Until then, support your ideological allies, shun those who would limit your freedom and undermine our nation’s founding principles and stay strong.
