Knowing Who You Are

There are many articles that keep us informed of current events, what the Obamanation is up to and what everyone thinks we should .. well, think.  That stuff is important.  I want to know what’s going on, but at no point does anything on TV, in-print or on the radio change what I feel.

The left would have the masses believe that the Conservative movement has come about because of the Tea Party.  No.  The Tea Party arose because America is a Conservative, freedom loving nation and organization is necessary to protect her from another threat.  There were patriots that did it prior to 1776 and there are those of us now that will do it again – at any cost.

Sure, this time it is not an English King.  I understand that we are not being oppressed by a God-appointed monarch.  We now know there is no such thing as divine right.  No, we are now fighting against the elitist, power-hungry know-nothings in Washington D.C. that think that one-world government – the largest possible form of government – is the answer.

I have seen Maddow, Mathews, Stewart et al try to play this American enlightenment off as nothing more than right-wing extremists being led around by Glenn Beck and Dick Armey.  Uh, no.  It just illustrates their ignorance.

While I have caught a few of Glenn’s shows, I live on the East coast .. he’s on when I’m driving home from work (yeah, we don’t collect welfare checks Rachel).  As far as the House speaker from a decade ago .. strike two libs .. try again – he’s not directing Americans .. he’s just doing whatever it is that previous politicians do.  The real American people .. not concerned about it.

I have known how I have felt about debt, killing babies, defending my country, chivalry, charity and work ethic long before Glenn Beck took his first drink.  I am who I am and it is who I have been for a very long time.  I voluntarily entered the armed forces immediately after the invasion of Kuwait.  Yes, I know you progressives will say I was stupid for doing it .. but that’s only because you are struggling with the concept of honor, truth and the American way.  Venezuela is waiting for you and I can’t wait for you to leave.

Glenn, Rush or whomever else you would like to paint me with was not in my life when I got baptized, got my first .22, skinned my first squirrel, had my first communion, shot my first pheasant, shot my first dear, got shot at in  a foreign country, started my first business, met my wife, had my kids, or started my second and third businesses.  None of those people have changed my life – they have just added information into it that the liberal media won’t offer.

I was pissed-off at progressives long before I knew who Obama, Reid and Pelosi were.  I was the only kid in my elementary school class to carry a Ford sign when, for whatever reason, we had to have a political parade at that age – and by the way, my Mom was voting for Carter .. a rebel at 8, who knew?  I was in the military under Clinton and he was the main reason  I decided not to re-enlist.  I have principles.  I will gladly give my life in the defense of the true Republic, but would do no harm to her .. ever.

Don’t let someone define you by who’s on the television or radio.  Weren’t you that same person before you found those channels?  Be who you are, who you have always been.  Let them be ashamed for a change.  They live life by the pamphlet and have no clue who they really are – and they never will.
