Let It Begin in New York's 23rd C.D.

Let The Conservative Revolution begin in New York’s 23rd Congressional District.

For the last 50 years American culture has been steadily and incrementally drifting to the left without significant challenge because no one believed –except for a few prophetic voices on the fringes- that we could really lose our liberty.

Now the liberal establishment has overreached their ability to keep the silent majority silent. The radical socialist agenda being advanced by the present administration has awakened the American working class. It has been provoked to action as evidenced by the Tea Party movement, town hall attendance, and a resurgence of Conservatism. In fact, it’s time to see the beginning of a Conservative revolution, and there is no better place to let it begin than in New York’s 23rd Congressional District race where both the Republican and Democrat candidates are liberals.

Only the Conservative candidate holds to Biblical values on the abortion, traditional marriage and on other issues that are fundamental to American values.

People of faith have a real opportunity to send a clear message to the establishment political parties that we will not compromise Biblical values for political expediency. We must stand for life, for traditional marriage and smaller government.

Forget about winning the mushy middle. We must move the middle to the right. After all, it’s not a political decision; it’s a Biblical mandate:

“The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.” (Ecclesiastes 10:2 NIV)

Let this congressional race be the shot heard around the world signaling the return of our “One Nation Under God.” It’s not time to be apologetic for our strong Christian roots. It’s time to say it loud. Be sure to call all your friends and relatives in the upstate New York area covered by the 23rd district and tell them what’s at stake, and encourage them to get to the polls. It’s not just about their district. It’s about the future of a nation, a new revolution to restore liberty and the primacy of our Constitution. It’s about the beginning of a new revolution. Let it begin here, in New York, in the 23rd.

Time to Pray and Work

This is a time for serious prayer for our nation.

The President of the United States is demonstrating, almost daily, his incompetence for the job he has acquired. He is clearly in over his head, or as he put it when speaking of the abortion issue, “above his pay grade.”

The massive stimulus plan didn’t work, and is only serving to create a government- dependent society. (Could that have been his goal in the first place?)

His Foreign policy acumen demonstrated in such events like the Copenhagen debacle has turned us into the laughing stock of the Islamofascist world, and caused great anxiety among the leaders of civility. When the French prime minister accuses our president of being an appeaser you know we’ve got a problem.

Freedom loving people of the world see our wishy-washyness in Afghanistan and realize they can no longer count on the U.S. to, as JFK put it,

“ … pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

Obama’s naiveté, or just plain ignorance, concerning the Iranians may cause great harm and suffering to the people of Israel and others in the region. Other men in his position have risen to the occasion because their core beliefs were rooted in traditional American values. But Obama’s core beliefs are about change, a change we are already witnessing. Unfortunately, this change will bring great misery and pain to America, unless the people of God rise up and say, “No more!” Let it begin in November by throwing out every member of Congress, Republican or Democrat, who is not clearly aligned with core conservative principles. Never mind moving to the center. We need to move the center to the right. That was precisely the strategy the left used –they moved the center to the left. What was considered preposterous ten years ago is now normal. We must reverse the trend.

In November, we must demand from our candidates clear positions on three core principles:

First, a renewed commitment to our national motto: “In God We Trust” and an allegiance to all that that would suggest. That must be our starting point. Then we must recommit to a strong national defense, and third, we must begin the work of dismantling the federal monster government consuming our liberties, and begin diffusing the job of governing back to the states and local governments.

November must mark a turning point or our children may grow up in a country much “changed” from the nation we know and love. We must begin praying and working now.
