News From Washington DC

This week will be difficult for me to blog - I am currently in a week long leadership training course in Washington DC, with little access to the web.

Since I have this opportunity in between my nightly reading curriculum, I decided to provide a few words of encouragement and insight from the front lines.

First - Democratic over-reach, corruption, and blunders are abound... though it is adding to hardships from our economy, the true nature of their agenda is hung out on the line for all to see - there is no longer a safe haven of hatred for Bush with which to shield their ugliness - The playing field is being levelled day by day... and when the field is level, Conservative Values - Republican Values - will win every day. It may seem discouraging, but we must endure, protest, and endure some more - always offering the logical and sound solution to the increased problems created by the Democrats. It is our goal, not to simply endure, but to live and die by our Conservative convictions - so much so that our credibility returns, and we can regain the momentum and power to return this country to a free nation of states.

Secondly - now is the moment of reflection and introspection for those who truly wish to see the GOP rise from the ashes of 2008. This does not mean inaction - it merely means that every action must be calculated, every inaction must be calculated, and every opportunity must be seized to reflect and spread the message of what we find within ourselves and within what we believe this party needs to be. We must not only be the change, we must first envision the strategy and goal of our change - the strategy and goal of our party. We must not change for the sake of changing... we must change to regain respect and credibility... we must change to return freedom and liberty to her rightful owners... we must change to survive... for liberty to survive.

Lastly - on change - it should never be the message of the party which changes... liberty, freedom, life... Conservative values, Libertarian values - they are connected... we can encourage social conservatism and the return of true liberties - empowering the people to thrive as responsible individuals... This is the platform of the party - the rest is merely politics. Our message should remain the same... what should change is how we communicate the message... we need to become enlightened on the art of communication - our message is already superior.

    Stay off the streets. And off of Capitol Hill. It's difficult to say which is more dangerous.

  2. Great post, my favorite point "Conservative values, Libertarian values - they are connected... we can encourage social conservatism and the return of true liberties"
    This is exactly correct and the true essence of the battle that America is engaged in. It is not a liberal/conservative conflict. It is truly a battle of the individual/statism. Love your blog.

  3. T D - Thanks for the kind words. And thanks for reading. We have to correctly identify the problem if we ever stand a chance in finding a solution.

    Cheers!
