There seems to be an increasing level of frustration, arguing, and backbiting appearing on the Constitutional Emergency Discussions. I am very concerned that we are allowing our enthusiasm to wane; that we are taking our frustrations out on each other.
There is no question but what the initial turnout was disappointing. We must make an even greater effort! Try, if you will, to put yourself in Col. Riley’s shoes. This man spent years in honorable service to his country; now, at 76 years of age, when he should be able to enjoy his "golden years," he has once more had to offer up his life for this nation. Think about how disappointed he must have been on May 16, when the 1.8 million who had committed to attending had shrunk to 1000. Yet he never wavered. He marched on with the small army he had.
To those who have suggested we need new leadership, I say: Col. Riley has never deviated from Operation American Spring’s purpose:
1) Oust the "Dirty Seven" - Obama, Biden, Holder, Reid, Pelosi, Boehner, and McConnell;
2) Restore our Constitutional Republic to what the Founders intended it to be.
That, Patriots, is what we need to be focusing on. Not on issues such as the environment, birther argument, or the legitimacy of the Iraq war. These other issues, while they may very well be important, WILL NOT FURTHER OUR CAUSE. We must stay focused. We must put forth even greater effort. We must not allow ourselves to bicker and fight amongst ourselves, for a house divided cannot stand. WE MUST UNITE, AND STAY UNITED BEHIND OUR CAUSE.
Ask yourself: What can I do? Can I find a way to go to Washington, D.C., even for just a few days? Can I do more in my local area? Most of us are already calling and/or emailing our representatives and senators, talking to family and friends, and printing up flyers to pass out. Think: What else can I do? If you can get together with other Patriots, do it. We all can do better with the sharing of ideas. For example, another Patriot came up with a simple way to spread the word that I had totally overlooked: Leaving a flyer with your tip in restaurants (thank you, Maria!).
We are in a battle against evil forces that would destroy our beautiful country. The damage is already very grave; we have no time to waste.
I will leave you to ponder some quotes that illustrate the great change that has come upon our nation over the last fifty years:
"Ask not what your country can do for you; "The Constitution is a charter of negative
ask what you can do for your country." liberties...it doesn't say what the federal
government must do on your behalf."
"A rising tide lifts all boats." "The rich must pay their fair share!"
-John F. Kennedy -Barack H. Obama
Rhonda, Thank you. Your message is inspiring. I will make sure Col Riley sees this.
My husband and I are slowly letting people know what is happening to our Country. Some are aware, but for the most, people are asleep and don't even care. Some that I talk to are not concerned at all, they think God is going to rapture them up to heaven and they will not prepare or even take action against this tyrannical government. I am more fearful now because I see so many people like that. We are trying to wake them up, but some just cannot be saved.
I pray you will not be fearful for God did not give us a spirit of fear. Keep looking at God - in His Word, in prayer, in hymns - let your faith grow and swell up inside and make you bold as a lion - God loves YOU!!!
Keep up the good work, keep spreading the news of what is going on. Ask God to open their eyes and hearts of understanding.
I also thank you Jean for your timely post! Please read mine now and respond. Presidential Platform: Bringing Home American Businesses
The movement fell apart before it ever started. People are not going to trek to DC. There's got to be a better way. Perhaps motivating people to swarm their local congressman's offices?
Why won't people "trek" to D.C.? They'll hop on a plane and lay on the beaches of Cancun? They head to Disney and spend thousands of $$. So why is going to our nation's capitol such a hard task? Somewhere in the Constitution (don't have it in front of me) there is something about protesting against a government that no longer represents the people. HELLO! We should have been there a decade ago! So . . . if people will forego their normal summer vacation, lay down the t.v. remote, get off of their laptops and smartphones, put their butt in a car and head to D.C. for a few days, maybe those that have been there a month now would like to go home and spend some time with their families? Going to a congressman's office is a waste of time. I believe in order to be elected to public office right now one has to pass the class "Learning How to Lie 101". It's a little more difficult to lie when looking out your office window and seeing a million people on the lawn on the National Mall. It's what we'd hoped for, and out of 300 million people living here in all of this freedom that so many fought and died for, you'd think completely possible. How disappointing to make the trip and see a small band of patriots knowing this is the final act before things turn ugly. Well, uglier than they already are . . . I commend Col Riley and all those who are in leadership of OAS and have hung in there. It is the right thing. No one in media picked it up either because they're in on it or they believe they have nothing to gain. That is no excuse with the social media we have access to. People are just lazy, ignorant or both.
I think it is partly what you write, J Merk, and partly what George Massu and Tammy Hyatt wrote. The Tea Party had a rally in DC on the same weekend as the Truckers March DC. How many TP People showed. Negligible. The Motorcyclists, soon thereafter, had a rally in DC. The TP was invited to both of these rallies. How many TP people showed for the Motorcyclists' rally? Negligible again. Now I poured my myself into trying to "rally the troops" to a million figuratively, but to little or no avail. Here come Harry who has his ducks-in-a-row, is more than well organized, and how many showed up in support for Harry's thoughts? Negligible once again. What does this tell the BO? We are negligible....until you view Eric Cantor's defeat. Now what? We like local activities, we like talking, we like typing, we do NOT like to travel. Too much infringement on out time? Perhaps. Lazy? Perhaps. Whatever it is, the Tea Party will not move out of their comfort zone. I applaud the Four of July idea. I have mentioned this before myself. Try it; you'll like it! Where's the beef? It is in DC on July 4 and other weekends and other days. But, being you all love to type and give your outstanding opinions, and the are outstanding, please go to my blog as we need to create a platform on which to judge candidates. The results will be sent to all presidential candidates, and perhaps others as well, who seem to align themselves with the Tea Party.
If you were the new President, would the following be an avenue you would explore?
Please respond first with YES or NO
and then offer any of your comments.
The Bundy issue also pointed out that America, given the right circumstances, will rise up to meet the domestic enemy.............OAS has not yet resonated the grave condition with our citizens nation-wide. Believe me, I'm praying for that catalyst to energize millions to D.C. My heart tells me it's the only way to reverse the threat our nation faces.............there is no doubt the Obama Admin is waiting us to take the first shot.............we won't but it they do, then..........................
I'm in it until the end.
Excellent Post. Understand one very salient truth. Barack Hussein Obama is an enemy of this nation, it's foundational Principles and Our Constitution. Obama is a criminal of the first order, and the fact that not one single member of the Congress has presented Impeachment, and the Military continues to ignore it's sworn oath to defend The Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic, and arrested Barack Hussein Obama, is testament that this nation no longer exists. The fact that the Border Patrol has not defied any higher up orders, and is not defending our borders, is one more criminal act by this cretin occupying the Oval Office.
Wake Up ! I say again !
Barack Obama is the enemy of this nation !
Death to Tyrants !
Oh, and Peter, did you know that we now know that the administration was involved with producing the film that they say started the Benghazi attack? Yes, it is true! Do you remember them saying, We had nothing to do with making that video? I always thought it peculiar when they made that comment. NOW I know why. Digging through the evidence, this video was produced by a man who CLAIMED to be Christian, but we now know was actual muslim. His purpose was to cause international laws (and, I assume, national laws, therefore) making it a crime to delineate Muslimism. And, our wonderful Secretary of State and her buddy BO were solidly behind it all. What does that make Hillary? A Christian hater? What does that make BO? The muslim we all know that he is? Please go to my blog and participate in making a platform for presidential candidates whose results will be sent to every presidential candidate who seems to follow tea Party thinking.
