The frustration and anger by conservatives about the direction of
this country continue to grow. Even many moderates are starting to wake
up to the failed policies and lack of leadership by the Obama
In the Georgia primary election last Tuesday, July 20, Republicans
cast more ballots than Democrats for governor by a two-to-one margin.
The other races on the ballot also showed that significantly more
Republicans voted than Democrats, but the highest office on the ticket
is a most telling sign about what could happen in November.
“Could happen” is the operative phrase, because Republicans could
take back control of Congress if conservatives get out and vote the
right way in November. The results in the recent Georgia primary are
consistent with an on-going Gallup poll showing that conservatives
outnumber liberals two-to-one. Moderates have a one-and-a-half head
count advantage over liberals in the same poll.
I am not suggesting that Georgia is indicative of the entire country,
but those results along with the Gallup poll provide a huge ray of
hope for November.
The numbers are on our (conservatives) side, but we can’t stay home!
We are the biggest danger to ourselves and the future of this country
if we do not actively support good candidates, and encourage people to
get out and vote in November.
I also encourage listeners and audiences to do three things if we are
going to slow down the Obama-Reid-Pelosi socialism express in November
2010. Stay united. Stay informed. Stay inspired.
The recent accusation of racism by the NAACP toward the Tea Party movement was an attempt to divide and
intimidate these citizen activists. The big government liberals also
hoped the racism charge would discourage further criticism of the failed
policies of this administration and Congress, as I discussed in my
commentary last week. The accusation backfired because they had no
credible proof of their claim.
Their baseless claim was highlighted by the baseless firing of a lady
named Shirley Sherrod when then the NAACP, the White House and the
Department of Agriculture had to backtrack and apologize after all of
the facts were known. That incident diminished even further the
credibility of the NAACP. This attempt to divide us did not work, but
beware of future attempts, which start with name calling and false
Playing the racism card did not make people forget that the stimulus
spending is not working and the economy is stalled. People are more
informed than the Democrats think, because they think we are all stupid.
Efforts by the White House to ignore Fox News did not work. Efforts to
censor talk radio have not worked, because people can distinguish
between facts and hate speech as the liberals claim.
Stay informed, because liberals love stupid people and they hate the facts.
And most importantly, stay inspired.
Liberals want us to give up. They want us to believe that our votes do
not count. They want us to believe that we can’t change control of
congress, and that the United States of Europe is inevitable.
At dozens of rallies where I have spoken and proclaimed that “America
is not going down that road” the reaction of the people has been
enthusiastically the same. Not on our watch! The real change we want is
coming in November.
The fight to take back our government is happening now. It is
happening at Tea Party rallies, conferences, town hall meetings, in
neighborhoods, get out the vote drives, on the Internet and support for
conservative candidates all over this country.
This gives me great hope for our vote in November.
