People I am sitting here at my desk trying to figure out what has me so pissed off about so many of the things I've read on the net in the last couple of days. I think I may have figured it out. For weeks now I've heard people (mostly neo-con pundits and left wing propagandists) say that Reagan conservatism is dead. Then I do myself a large favor and find all of these wonderful people on the net that I have so much in common with, in so many ways, and with a few exceptions, they believe most of what I do, but other than a vague sense that things should be "this way", they really can't tell me why they believe the country should go on a certain path.
Worse are those that give lip service to founding principles but then hedge when it comes to a topic that makes them uncomfortable. Prop 8 in California is a good example. I've got people sending me emails that are so dead set against it as a civil rights violation. How can this even be debated with a straight face? (no pun intended) To try to make it a civil rights issue you have to completely ignore the purpose that marriage has served and what it was for. Procreation of the species and the education and protection of the same. Nothing else. All of the other narcissistic arguments to the contrary, that is what marriage was ordained by God to accomplish. It wasn't set up to be a symbol of love. Hell, for most of human history, marriages were arranged affairs and the couple didn't have spit to say about it.
But it goes farther than that. Our public education system has succeeded in teaching our youth a completely backward view of our history and the so-called enlightened among us, will not allow themselves to be taught the truth. They are comfortable with excepting deviant behaviors to be paraded in front of us while the boy scouts are touted as a hate-teaching organization, and efforts to keep them off of Government land that are traditional retreat/camping areas for the boy scouts, in an attempt to force them to give over their ideals and moral beliefs. They get themselves so worked up and full of rage because some of us have a very clear moral compass and so we have no problem passing judgement on a behavior that is anathema to our beliefs. But the argument on Homosexual "rights" isn't even a cause for alarm. It's a symptom of the disinformation and dissolving of our soul as a nation. Moral equivelancy was injected into our society when our moral and religious backing was stripped away in the last 60 years. For over 300 years our forefathers lived on this land and had a very clear idea of how the country should be governed and our children taught. The tragedy is that what are children are being taught is a complete bastardization of actual events.
I could write for days and days without stopping on the founding principles and how, if we would just get back to them without ommitting those values that we find uncomfortable, we would find ourselves prosperous and powerful beyond anything yet imagined. Instead I'm going to turn you on to a couple of websites. I hope that each and every one of you will go to them and read for yourselves the truths that our forefathers already knew. Very nearly everything that plagues our society has been covered by our founders if we just look into their words and works of the day.
So here they are. The first website I would ask you all to visit and join up if you will is http://www.wallbuilders.com . From this site you will learn so much of what our framers thought of important issues of the day. Also, I would enjoin you to visit and also support the Heritage Foundation at http://www.heritage.org/ . The heritage foundation and the National Rifle Association are the two organizations outside of my church that I belong to. I gave up my Republican membership when they gave up my principles.
Finally, let me say this; Stop being afraid of standing for Truth. I capitalize it because it is indeed an entity unto itself. In this day and age, the belief in an absolute truth is frowned upon because it forces you to make judgement calls on everything. Learn to except that Truth does not change and is not really subjective. Our enemies try to make it subjective because the blackness that eats at their souls is easier to hide if they keep society from shedding light on it.
