So, I walked into a Conoco to grab a Coke and a Rice Krispy Treat bar (hey, I need comforting here). I grab my snacks and greet Brandi the cashier, a Seattle liberal who admits to being a Christian, but not exactly a follower of Christ by her actions.
Turns out, I’ve had previous political discussions with Brandi and she knows I’m one of those crazy right-wing people. But I’m no ordinary neo-con, I’m the Rabid Conservative….and I am in need of caffeine, which is never a good thing.
“So, are you bummed?”, Brandi says, chiding me on the McCain loss with a smug look in her eye.
Without skipping a beat, I say, “Yeah, I am. But I’m optimistic too. I just want to know how long it will take before Obama starts reneging on his campaign promises.”
Brandi proceeded to give me a most dirty look before handing me my credit card slip.
“Sign!”, she demands, quickly irritated from my small dose of truth.
I chuckle, signing and handing the slip to her. She snatches it as I walk out while she chokes out a “Have a nice day”, which by her tone meant, “Get bent, loser.”
Liberals are so easy to annoy. When you have that much hate and vitriol stored up, hey, it’s like a powderkeg.
Yeah, OK, we lost last night and the Obama-philes are reveling in their victory. Meanwhile, in the bunker, the Conservative Underground awakens…
Y’all read my letter last night and as gracious as I had hoped to be, that doesn’t mean that I’m going to shut up and dance liberal. Oh, no, my friends, we’ve been on defense before and one thing that life has taught me: the struggle doesn’t end here.
It will only end when Jesus comes back. But until that time, our duty as Christians is to be subject to the higher powers. Since the US requires citizen participation to work, Christians should work to further the cause of Christ by changing the political tides when we can.
But before we do, let me illuminate three key expectations that you will probably see (at the risk of sounding prophetic) in the coming days:
1. We can expect that the liberals will continue to shut us down. Chuck Schumer, just yesterday, noted a desire to return the so-called Fairness Doctrine to the table, equating talk radio “fairness” to that of pornography, in the interest of equality towards private enterprise.
Listen up Chuck, if you are so darned concerned about fairness, then let’s talk about how UN-fair the tax rates are to the affluent. Why is it fair for a person making $250k/year to pay 40% of that in taxes while someone who makes $45k/year to pay 23%?
You’re not interested in fairness. You’re only interested in making things “fair” to suit your own liberal purposes.
Additionally, while Nancy Pelosi talks about creating a true bi-partisan atmosphere, something that she has no intent on doing, just know that any purported Republican or Democrat who sacrifices the most basic of conservative ideals for a seat at the table because that against which we fight. If the Founding Fathers found ways to compromise without sacrificing their ideals, then we should seek the same goal.
2. We can expect that the homosexual liberals in California to file suit to overturn the will of the people with respect to Prop 8. The measure was put on the ballot to give the people the right to allow or disallow gay marriage. The people said no. Unfortunately, the gays won’t accept that answer.
I find it interesting because democracy works when it gets Obama into office, but the majority is wrong and democracy has to be hijacked by judicial fiat when California, Arkansas, and Florida pass measures against same-sex marriage. In other words, the people spoke that they want Obama AND a same-sex marriage ban in California.
BTW – Speaking of which, where are all the people on the left that clamor on about how the Electoral College is a faulty system? They were out in droves in 2000 and 2004.
3. We can expect to see a direct attack on life. Obama has already mentioned he’s wanting to push the Freedom of Choice amendment, which will remove any protections put in place since Roe v. Wade and open the door to more infanticide. And he’s already discussed the issue of bringing embryonic stem cells back to the table, killing more human beings in the interests of science and ignoring all the research and potential for adult stem cells, which do not deprive people of life.
Well, it’s time to turn the lights back on and get to work. My friends, we’re all saddened and sickened by what transpired last night; this is not the result that we wanted to see. But now’s the time we get on defense and do what the government refuses to do: protect life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – in that exact order.
If we as conservatives are going to rise again, we have to have a message that reverberates with the heart of Americans. I believe we can do this, if we really believe it important enough to do.
Our time will come again. Our message is timeless. Our God is eternal and sovereign. And we will triumph at the end of all things, regardless of what the forces of Satan may push our way.
It’s not over, my friends. It begins anew….right now.
