A Day Of Reckoning Is At Hand

MILLIONS OF AMERICANS nationwide are gearing up for one hell of a fight in 2014. Grassroots organizations such as Red Nation Rising, The Traditional American Movement, The Tea Party, III%, etc., are mobilizing because of the tyranny, lies, and corruption being paraded before us on a level rarely seen in our great nation.

AMERICANS ARE FED UP with the political sophistry being bantered about by Obama and his cronies including the following: our president being caught with his pants down as a result of his multiple lies; Obama's empty rhetoric and broken promises openly on display before the American people; King Obama's parlor games and Chicago-style shenanigans being played out in order to pass his unconstitutional ObamaCare without so much as ONE single Republican vote in Congress. This administration also has the blood of American innocents on its hands as a result of Benghazi and Fast and Furious. His majesty-in-chief modifies the law (ObamaCare) at his own whim, to suit his own purpose and agenda without consulting or seeking the legal approval of Congress, and we are at the point whereby several federal justices are now saying he is breaking the law. Precisely where is the outrage being expressed in Congress? The House of Representatives should be drafting articles of impeachment against this nation's executive lawbreaker. Is there no shame? One of the seven principles of the Constitution stipulates that no one is above the law.

OUR ARMED FORCES are being gutted, feminized, and sissified by the current administration. Our commander-in-chief and Congress are shamefully playing fast and loose with our veterans' pensions, and many such veteran heroes lack the necessary and full complement of medical care when coming home as a result of risking their lives abroad for all Americans while suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, loss of limbs, etc. Civilians are ponying up private donations in order to fund the activities and medical support of organizations such as Wounded Warriors. Blessed be to God that ordinary, hard working Americans are stepping up to the plate and filling in the gap while our federal government is preoccupied with funding programs for our nation's deadbeats and freeloaders. On average, 22 veterans are taking their own lives on a daily basis because of this travesty. Active duty Christian soldiers and chaplains are being persecuted and silenced for speaking about their faith as if the US Constitution they are risking their lives to defend has scarce application in their own lives.

OUR TRADITIONAL, Judaic/Christian morality is under constant attack from the secular-leftist weapons of mass destruction like no other time in our history as evidenced with the annual "War on Christmas" and the marginalizing, castigation, and name calling leveled toward those Americans who simply want to preserve and engage in traditional morality and ethics that have been the cornerstone of this nation's foundation for hundreds of years. Secular-liberals and atheists now have the complete support of the Obama administration and the majority of our politicians in Congress as well as the leftist media and Hollywood loons that affect our culture. Our court system is running amok and trampling on the constitutional rights of the majority of America's citizens. Our president and other politicians in some states are brown nosing Muslims and their organizations, giving Sharia Law authority over the US Constitution. America's public school system is controlled by secular-liberals, their unions, and as a direct result, the education of our youth is in decline and non-competitive with other nations while leftist psycho-babble is being shoved down our children's throats-only to be continued while they are attending college. Many parents are neglecting their parental duties and allowing their children to become narcissistic. Such parents need to take a good look in the mirror for some self-examination before seeking out scapegoats to blame for the dismal failure of their children in school and society. The federal government is taking more authority away from the states and the individual that our Founding Fathers guaranteed us in the Constitution since the beginning of the Republic. Another example is the Obama administration federalizing our police force and providing local law enforcement with military-style armored vehicles, much to the chagrin and fear of local citizens. As a nation, we have lost sight of our history, our vision, our sacred traditions, and traditional morality as our rudderless ship of state can accomplish no greater feat than to draw ridiculous paths of circular doughnuts upon the sea. Indeed, the former silent majority of this nation is now angry and absolutely fed up.

A DAY OF RECKONING is at hand in 2014. Traditional Americans are going to crack the whip as those of us who are members of the aforementioned grassroots organizations are organizing, rising, becoming more vocal, and beginning to become ardent political activists. We are the movers and the shakers who are going to take back our country in November of 2014 from those domestic enemies of the state who are destroying this country from within and trampling upon America's sacred founding documents, the Declaration of Independence as well as the US Constitution which is the supreme law of the land. We have had our belly fill of the dubious and duplicitous actions of those politicians in both political parties in Washington D.C. who have lost sight of the fact that their authority to govern is derived from the American people. They are going to be reminded of this in 2014, 2016, and beyond. We have resurrected the Spirit of 1776 once again as we take on the contemporary role of the Sons and Daughters of Liberty who confronted the tyranny of King George III and Parliament of England during the 18th Century. A day of reckoning is at hand.

The Old America; We Really Miss You!

When President Obama promised the American people that "change" was coming, he managed to keep that promise. Millions of Americans are finally waking up to the fact that this metamorphosis is not at all what we bargained for as it is transforming this nation into a Western European puppet of socialism and military weakness. This president is one of the most secular-liberal and tyrannical leaders America has ever been subjected to, and America's historical greatness and virtues of exceptionalism are at serious risk of being dissevered from our unique past. What precisely has gone wrong, and what must be done to reverse course?

Foreign Policy:

Our European allies, France and Germany, are rightfully furious with the Obama administration because it has been caught with its pants down with regard to spying on them and their leaders. Now they know how Americans feel, especially since this whole spying nonsense is unconstitutional with regard to our own country. But is this policy the best way to solidify our relationship with friends we need at this point in time? I think not. It is an embarrassment for our people and the nation. President Obama has lost credibility internationally, and he appears as an inept, inexperienced ninny to the entire world, and that perception is accurate. We miss the old America.

The Military:

Under President Obama and the Democrats, our Armed Forces are becoming more and more "sissified" and traditional military leaders and veterans are increasingly becoming more alarmed with the direction the Pentagon and Department of Defense are taking our men and women in uniform. I have personally conversed with a number of my friends who currently are on active duty, and they have all expressed dissatisfaction and disgust with the changes currently taking place that are harming national security and the morale of our troops. We miss the old America.

The Great Divider:

President Obama and his Democratic sheeple have divided the American people to the point that we are beginning to reflect the type of resentment and bitter attitudes similar to what we experienced during the 1860s when we were engaged in the Civil War. As a people, we are sharply divided not only along political lines, but cultural, religious, economic, educational, military, foreign policy, and national vision lines as well. As the old saying goes, "Without a vision, a people perish." We miss the old America.

Economic Depression:

Yes, I do mean a fiscal Depression. What exactly do I mean? Statistics and news analysis clearly point out the fact that we have become a nation of people that are more dependent than ever on long-term governmental assistance than any time in American history which includes welfare, food stamps, housing assistance, student loan assistance, utilities assistance, health care assistance, and the list goes on. Because of Obamacare, literally hundreds of thousands of Americans coast to coast are being cut off from their insurance policies. Those that still remain covered by individual and group policies are seeing their policy rates being doubled and tripled as well as deductibles rising sharply. Doctors are dropping their patients because of costs, etc. Remember when President Obama sold us a HUGE lie saying insurance costs would decline, we could keep our current insurance policies if we were happy, keep our doctors, etc? President Obama and the Democrats are not only being disingenuous with the American people, they are the quintessential  "snake oil salesmen" that would do such 19th century itinerant charlatans proud. Employers are either firing employees right and left or significantly reducing their hours to part-time employment due to the explosive costs and regulations of Obamacare which is transforming America into a nation of part-time workers. No wonder millions of Americans prefer to live off of the government dole whereby it is much easier for them to do so rather than trying to make ends meet by working two or three part time jobs with no benefits. We are no longer a nation of producers, but we are becoming a nation of takers and freeloaders. Yet, isn't it interesting that those of us who are producers within the middle class are not able to bring our families as frequently to amusement parks, such as Disneyland, because we are unable to afford them anymore. But when one thinks of it, if you are now a member of the low-information, freeloader class receiving free housing, welfare, food stamps, etc., there is plenty of money available for such people to spend at such expensive amusement theme parks. I have taken the time to drive down the streets of homes within "federal housing projects," and I find the cars parked in these driveways to be ones that are significantly newer and higher priced than anything I drive. We are "spreading the wealth" to the point that middle class Americans are absolutely fed up with having our hard earned tax dollars being distributed to such freeloaders and deadbeats. We miss the old America.

Our Judaic/Christian Heritage:

The secular-liberals now control the nation and call all of the shots with the complete support of the White House, Congress, and the Supreme Court. Christianity is under attack like nothing I have ever seen or read in American history. Military chaplains are persecuted, Christmas celebrations in public forums are now banned, traditional morality is considered radical, yet stores nationwide sure continue to covet and love our dollars being spent on our national holiday to help keep them in business. Ironically, we continue to see signs greeting shoppers with Happy Holidays rather than Merry Christmas in the majority of our shopping centers. Our traditional culture is being torn asunder, and when traditional Americans cry "foul" we are accused of being intolerant bigots and haters while the strong arm of the state and federal governments come crashing down upon us like the hammer of Thor. We miss the old America.

Islam Invasion:

Secular-liberals, Democrats, and the federal government are bending over backwards to cooperate with Islamic radicals' demands, courting their favor and votes, while conveniently forgetting the fact that these same radicals would not hesitate to persecute and kill women, gays, Christians, Jews, and any other infidels they are intolerant of. All one need do is take a peek at what is currently transpiring in Europe and the Middle East, and I rest my case. Sharia Law here we come. The American Constitution and our Judaic/Christian heritage be damned. Muslims are demanding that their sacred holidays be permitted to be celebrated and embraced in our public schools, yet God forbid Christian and Jewish holidays be granted the same courtesy and respect in our public schools and other public forums.  We miss the old America.

The answer is quite simple. Traditional Americans need to take back our country. We need to reprise the old American hymn, Onward Christian Soldiers, and show up at the polls in 2014 and 2016 and  vote secular-liberals and RINOs out of office. We need to be bold, we need to cowboy and cowgirl up and restore the old America while we still can. My book, The Sissification of America: A Fifty-Year Decline in American Exceptionalism, explains how we got to the place where we currently are, and it offers some practical solutions as to how we can restore our beloved old America back to the foundation and traditions we were founded upon. Will you help us Patriots? Buy the book, read it, and please encourage your friends and family members to do likewise. It is an award-winning book and a great read with excellent reviews. We need to quit making excuses, be bold, take the bull by the horns, saddle up, and corral secular-liberals in order to brand them all with a giant "T" for being traitors to the American Constitution and the American people. We miss the old America. Do you?

John Wayne-Traditional American Icon

John Wayne was and still is, a national hero to the vast majority of Americans. He was a traditional, conservative, American actor who epitomized the quintessential American. He was a loyal patriot, a rugged individual, independent, self-reliant, a very tough but fair man, a devoted father, a hard worker, an award-winning actor, a conservative activist,  a devout supporter of the the U.S. Armed Forces, and he believed in the American Dream. During the turbulent 1960s, John Wayne took on the liberal establishment, and he was criticized by the left for his political conservatism, but his love for America and his response to leftist, reactionary ninnies was: "in 200 years had taken the wilderness and made it a farm that feeds the world and a factory that defends the world."

We are living in times where conservative, traditional Americans are under constant attack and ridicule by the mainstream media, leftist Hollywood, the Democratic Party, secular-liberals, the Obama administration, the federal government, etc., yet isn't it quite telling how John Wayne is a popular icon Americans respect and look up to for inspiration from a bygone era, the same era secular-progressives love to malign? The characters Wayne portrayed in his hit films are a reflection of the man himself, what he believed, what he stood for, and what he steadfastly maintained represented the best of America. The following quotes are some of the lines delivered by the  colorful characters Wayne portrayed in various films. They reflect the values he personally believed in and fought for:

Movie Quotes:

"I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people, and I require the same from them."   The Shootist-1976.

"I haven't lost my temper in 40 years; but, Pilgrim, you caused a lot of trouble this morning; might have got somebody killed; and somebody ought to belt you in the mouth. But I won't. I won't. The hell I won't."    McLintock-1963

"Well son, since you haven't learned to respect your elders, it's time you learned to respect your betters."    Big Jake-1971

"There's right and there's wrong. You gotta do one or the other. You do the one, and you're living. You do the other, and you may be walking around, but you're as dead as a beaver hat."    The Alamo-1960

Additional Quotes from the Duke:

"I want to play a real man in all my films, and I define manhood simply: Men should be tough, fair, and courageous, never petty, never looking for a fight, but never backing down from one either."

"Life's hard. It's even harder when you're stupid."

"Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway."

"A man deserves a second chance, but keep an eye on him."

"If you got them by the balls their hearts and minds will follow."

"Some people tell me everything isn't black and white. But I say why the hell not?"

"You can't eat awards. Nor, more to the point, drink 'em."

"I'm a greedy old man. Life's been good to me, and I want some more of it."

"I'd like to know why well-educated idiots keep apologizing for lazy and complaining people who think the world owes them a living."

"My hope and prayer is that everyone know and love our country for what she really is and what she stands for."

These quotes represented John Wayne on the silver screen as well as in his personal life. They reflect the values, honesty, and toughness that once stood for America, and these values and ideals were looked up to by world leaders who once respected and had a healthy fear of our country, unlike today. If John Wayne were alive today, the American left would brand him as a traditional radical. I wish he were alive today for he would absolutely mop the floor clean with such leftist stooges. There are millions of Americans who also wish there were more brawny men like John Wayne, not only acting in films in Hollywood, but serving as bold leaders of our country, men of the character of Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy. America desperately needs Cowboys of the caliber of the Duke who would tell all of us to Cowboy and Cowgirl up. John Wayne was anything but a sissy. He was a lover of books, and he would have appreciated and agreed with the points raised in my book, The Sissification of America: A Fifty-Year Decline in American Exceptionalism.

Without A Vision...A People Perish, Part II--The US Military

The introduction and Part I of my series, Without A Vision...A People Perish, address in considerable detail how, during the course of the past fifty years, America has strayed from its original vision as stipulated in both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Part II will address how the American military has succumbed to the same scenario as well. Please read very carefully the following two Soldier's Creeds of the U.S. Army. The first one is the original pre-2003 version of the creed while the second one is the current version used by the Army. The comparisons are most astounding to say the least:

Pre-2003 U.S. Soldier's Creed

* I am an American Soldier.
* I am a member of the United States Army-a protector of the greatest nation on earth.
* Because I am proud of the uniform I wear, I will always act in ways creditable to the military service and the nation it is sworn to guard.
* I am proud of my organization. I will do all I can to make it the finest unit in the Army.
* I will be loyal to those under whom I serve. I will do my full part to carry out orders and instructions given to me or my unit.
* As a soldier, I realize that I am a member of a time-honored profession-that I am doing my share to keep alive the principles of freedom for which my country stands.
* No matter what the situation I am in, I will never do anything for pleasure, profit, or personal safety, which will disgrace my uniform, my unit, or my country.
*I will use every means I have, even beyond the line of duty, to restrain my Army comrades from actions disgraceful to themselves and the uniform.
* I am proud of my country and its flag.
* I will try to make the people of this nation proud of the service I represent, for I am an American Soldier.

Post-2003 U.S. Soldier's Creed

* I am an American Soldier.
* I am a Warrior and a member of a team.
* I serve the people of the United States, and live the Army Values.
* I will always place the mission first.
* I will never accept defeat.
* I will never quit.
* I will  never leave a fallen comrade.
* I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.
* I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself.
* I am an expert and I am a professional.
* I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy, the enemies of the United States of America in close combat.
* I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.
* I am an American Soldier.

The first version is obviously much more profound and patriotic. The creed places an emphasis not only upon the duties and responsibilities of the soldier, but it is embedded with devout love for country, love for traditional values, morals, and the freedoms our Republic was founded upon. The soldier is dedicated to not only protecting the American people, but the Constitutional rights and principles that we are all guaranteed. The soldier places this duty and devotion above himself and everything else. Service to oneself for selfish pleasure, profit, and personal safely is not tolerated. It is abundantly clear in this particular creed that a soldier's sacrifice for country, the American people, and the Constitution reign supreme.

The second version, while still admirable to a degree, is a watered down, sterile, politically correct version with much less emphasis being placed upon love of country, its traditions, its principles, its morality, etc., and this creed reads more like a field manual of a soldier's rules of engagement on the battlefield, albeit more general in nature.

In my book, The Sissification of America: A Fifty-Year Decline in American Exceptionalism, chapter six which is titled, Cinderella Family, states the following: " We all had a good laugh in 2004 when the now retired conservative US Democratic Senator Zell Miller of Georgia questioned the conventioneers attending the Republican Convention in New York City as to whether or not Democrats within his own party would want our armed forces to fight future wars with spit balls. At the time, the line was quite humorous as Miller mocked members of his own political party, especially presidential candidate  John Kerry of Massachusetts. But you know what? With the way events are currently unraveling in America, I am no longer laughing!" Indeed my fellow Americans, Senator Miller had the federal government pegged.

On Wednesday, July 17, 2013, there appeared an article written by reporter Annie Z. Yu of The Washington Times. Here are a couple of brief excerpts: "Some conservatives say that the American military is not giving a fair shake to soldiers, sailors and Marines who want to practice their faith and express their beliefs more openly."....."The Family Research Council documented a range of events in the military-such as one in which an Air Force officer was told to remove a Bible from his desk."

We have all read accounts of military chaplains voicing concerns about the hostility the Pentagon is showing toward the men and women in uniform whereby their free speech and freedom of religion rights are under vicious, politically correct assault. Attacks upon Christianity are rampant, not only in society in general, but in the military as well. Under the Obama administration, funding cuts are impacting the Armed Forces to the extent that our nation's very security is at risk. Politically correct decisions are being instituted whereby women are now being given full access to Special Operation Forces such as the Navy Seals, etc. that could undermine the effectiveness of future missions under their direct control.  Sexual assaults upon both men and women in uniform are not only numbering in the thousands each year and causing scandals of epic proportions, but are significantly contributing to the lowering of morale within the ranks. Friends of mine who are currently serving in the Marines and the Army are disheartened as they have confided in me over dinner and a couple of beers that the military forces are not what they used to be, and they are looking forward to the day when they can leave the military because they are becoming fed up. Our veterans are having their benefits cut, and they are not being given the necessary care they desperately need upon return home in order to handle PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and other crippling conditions visited upon them while putting life and limb at serious risk on the battlefield. Suicide rates with veterans are on the rise. Recruitment of new personnel is significantly down because of funding cuts as well as the reduction of education programs such as the GI Bill. Retired military officers and generals are openly voicing concerns and disgust with what is currently happening to our Armed Forces. Many members of the VFW are up in arms as to what is currently transpiring in the military and the way both active duty servicemen and veterans are being treated. Need I go on?

But here is the rub. Our military is the last patriotic line of defense for America, yet it too is in serious decline. We are in dire trouble as a country. Americans need to wake the hell up and replace Democrats in Congress, who are directly responsible for all of this mess, with conservative Congressmen and senators in 2014, and we must elect a conservative president in 2016 or the country as we know it is doomed. This is no exaggeration, and I am not being an alarmist. Our original, noble, and sacred vision for our nation has all but disappeared as if that original vision could be described as one that is attempting to herd a bunch of cats who are wandering aimlessly about the country. We are at a defining moment in history. I encourage everyone to view my video book trailer on this website if you haven't seen it already. My book, The Sissification of America, is now on sale in print as well as on Kindle. Buy it, read it, and become proactive citizens before it is too late Patriots. When all is said and done, we need to acknowledge the fact that we are all American Soldiers.

Without A Vision...A People Perish, Part I-The Obsolete American!

During the 1960s, one of my favorite television shows was Rod Serling's, The Twilight Zone. The show was not only entertaining, but it was also a show that could be considered 'cutting edge' and ahead of its time. Case in point: The other day I was watching an episode called "The Obsolete Man," written and produced by Rod Serling himself. The basic premise of the story is how a librarian by the name of Romney Wordsworth, played by Burgess Meredith, is put on trial by a future American totalitarian state for being obsolete as a librarian. The 'state' has effectively eliminated all books, literacy, and the traditional American values including the worship of God and reading the Bible. In addition, there is no freedom of speech and freedom of thought. While on trial, Mr. Wordsworth asks his accusers: "Does history teach you nothing?" The 'state' finally executes Romney Wordsworth while he is reading his Bible in protest. At the very end of the episode, Rod Serling customarily appears and leaves the viewers with this parting thought: "Any state, any entity, any ideology that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of man, that state is obsolete." Fast forward a little over fifty years to American society as it exists today.

The Obama administration and the Democrats are the cast of characters in control of the American government and our educational system who are playing out the aforementioned scenario in 2013 which I prefer to nickname, "The Obsolete American!" Take a close look at the following scandals and situations that are being played out center stage, right before our very eyes:

* The federal government and news media did not protect the lives, much less identity, of the Seal 6 Team members who killed Osama Bin Laden. Most of these men are now dead. They paid a heavy price for their heroic valor.

* The DOJ is embroiled in the Mexican gun running scheme better known as Fast and Furious. Again, lives were lost.

* The State Department and the Obama administration are covering up Benghazi. The death of more Americans including Ambassador Stevens and more Navy Seals are front and center.

* The IRS is targeting conservative Americans because of their 'ideology' such as Tea Party groups, conservative individuals, and even church affiliated groups such as the one led by Franklin Graham, the son of America's pastor, Billy Graham. These traditional Americans are "Obsolete"

* The DOJ is spying on the press. Remember the AP scandal and the targeting of reporter, James Rosen, of Fox News? "Obsolete"

* The NSA is violating the 4th Amendment rights of all Americans by monitoring our phone calls, emails, and social network communications. The 'state' vs "Obsolete Americans."

* Spy drones are flying all over America. Our government snoops on "Obsolete Americans."

* The State Department is interfering with an IG investigation on State Department sexual misconduct.

* HHS employees are bing given insider information on Medicare Advantage.

* Hillary Clinton, the IRS, Clapper, and Holder are all lying to Congress. Average Americans that happen to be in their crossfire are "Obsolete."

* The FBI is failing to investigate criminal activities of the IRS and DOJ. These groups are NOT "Obsolete."

* A significant number of liberals now consider Tea Party groups to be on the same level as 'terrorists' just because they dare to stand up to the power and abuses of the 'state' while defending and fighting for traditional American virtues and values that once made our country great and the envy of the world. These traditional Americans are also "Obsolete."

* Secular-progressives, the main stream media, the entertainment industry, and intolerant atheists are  doing everything in their power, with the complete backing and support of the United States Supreme Court, to destroy our Judaic-Christian heritage and sacred holidays. They are trampling under foot, "Obsolete Americans."

* While visiting San Francisco, Barack Obama mocked traditional Americans who "cling to their guns and religion." On trial, apparently, are millions of "Obsolete Americans."

* The K-12 public school system and the vast majority of colleges and universities in America are under the tight-fisted control of way too many liberal, secular-progressive teachers and professors who are transforming our children into future liberal 'Stepford Kids' by brainwashing them with their vile psychobabble. These paragons of educational expertise no longer want future "Obsolete Adults."

* Low information voters are electing and re-electing low information politicians as if these "Hippie Generation Numbnuts" consisting of the elite, ruling class oligarchs of the 'state' were still on LSD acid trips. I truly wish these ninnies WERE "Obsolete Americans."

Rod Serling had created a horrific thriller for The Twilight Zone in 1961 with his nightmarish "The Obsolete Man." Well ladies and gentlemen, behold the fruition of Serling's episode just a mere fifty years later: "Any state, any entity, any ideology that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of man, that state is obsolete." "You have just entered, The Twilight Zone."

Without A Vision...A People Perish...Introduction

Both the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution established a profound "vision" for America in 1776 and 1789. They laid the groundwork for the establishment of the greatest Republic in world history, and America is at a point in time when her people could very well perish. I do not mean physically as a result of some major war or because of some impending cataclysmic event, but because our federal government and its agencies are leading us down a visionary path that is totally contrary to the sacred "vision" of our Founding Fathers which is enshrined in the aforementioned sacred documents. America declared its independence from Great Britain in 1776 and fought a six year war to shake off the tyrannical yoke of England's arrogant monarchy and oppressive, high-minded Parliament. Isn't it most interesting and ironic how our nation has come full circle by the year 2013? President Obama conducts his state of affairs in the same arrogant manner as did King George III, as if he were above the law. Our Congress is dysfunctional and resembles that of the arrogant House of Lords in Parliament. The nine black robed justices of the US Supreme Court function in the precise manner as Greek gods and goddesses, dispensing their powerful and heavy handed version of justice down upon their subjects with lightning bolts from Mount Olympus. Our federal government was never designed by our Founding Fathers to function in the manner in which it is accustomed to operating today, a government run amok, out of control, and totally unaccountable to the American people. All three branches of the federal government have become about as useful to the American people as teats are to a bull. Consider these salient points:

1.  President Obama, with the approval of Congress, is conducting a spying program on the American people that would make Richard Nixon appear as a charming church choir saint. This current spying program is in total violation of the Fourth Amendment of the Bill of Rights and is being conducted under the guise of national security-using the NSA and PRISM while at the same time, constructing a massive data mining complex in Utah in order to house a mind-boggling amount of data on the American people. Welcome to our "Orwellian Society!" This brings a whole new meaning to the "All Seeing Eye" on the back of the American dollar bill now doesn't it?

2.  Our federal government, as well as some state governments, are thrashing the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights in the hope of totally disarming the American people so we can't fight back while shamefully and cowardly hiding behind the skirts and pants of schoolchildren to achieve their diabolical goals. The ends justify the means.

3.  The federal government is currently surrounded by a host of scandals including: Benghazi and its intentional coverup under the inept and corrupt leadership of Hillary Clinton, the State Department, and President Obama; the criminal activities and abuses of the IRS with the targeting of conservative organizations and conservative churches; the AP scandal and scrutinizing of FOX News reporter, James Rosen, which is in direct violation of the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of the press; the president of the US defending the scandalous treachery of a corrupt Attorney General, Eric Holder. The victims and the families of victims be damned. As Hillary Clinton so sensitively put it as she shouted to Congress and the American people while waving her arms: "What does it matter?!!"

4.  The federal government is bankrupting the country, putting the well-being of the American people at serious risk. Welcome to Greece!

5.  America's armed forces are being weakened financially and spiritually, and as a direct result, the federal government is participating in the undermining of the Soldier's Creed. America's very survival is at serious risk. Veterans are up in arms. Men and women want to leave the military. Where is General Patton when we need him?

6. We are losing the vision of our sacred Judaic-Christian heritage while propping up the religion of Islam and giving that religion and its followers at all levels special attention and protection under the law just as we see happening in England. You had better be prepared folks to replace our Constitution with Sharia Law and the Koran!

7.  Low information American voters who are uneducated idiots, especially many who are members of the narcissistic 18-30 year old bunch, are electing and re-electing low information political idiots who are destroying this nation and dragging it down into the gutter. This is a political replay of "Dumb and Dumber." Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey anyone?

8.  The educational system is drowning under the influence and domination of secular-progressives, leftist public school teachers and professors within the K-12 public school system, colleges, and universities. They must all be fundamentally transformed in order to rescue our youth from being brainwashed by leftist psychobabble and the tyranny of the Democratic Party. Grab your popcorn, candy, and soda as we watch the "Stepford Kids," a Twilight Zone reality television show!

In upcoming blogs, I will be addressing these points in several parts. My book, the Sissification of America: A Fifty-Year Decline in American Exceptionalism, is the 2013 1st Place Gold Award winner in the category of History with eLit Awards. It supports and validates the aforementioned points that will be the topics of forthcoming blogs. If you click on the picture of my book, you can order it in print or on Kindle. It is a fascinating read with excellent reviews, and it will certainly not be a disappointment.

Traditional Americans....Are We Radical?

For those of you who regularly follow the news--the federal government, secular-liberals, the mainstream media, and even the US Army Reserve, are now calling traditional Americans who are Catholic and Evangelical Christians--radical. Oh really? Well if we are...then we are in excellent company for that would represent not only more than half of the country, but it would also include Americans such as our Founding Fathers and Patriots such as: the Sons and Daughters of Liberty of the 1700s, Paul Revere, The Minutemen, Samuel Adams, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, Ben Franklin, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and deceased entertainers such as John Wayne, Charlton Heston, Lucille Ball, Jimmy Stewart, Bob Hope, and many other great Americans and prominent American statesmen. We "radicals" should all consider it an honor and take considerable pride in this label while wearing it as a badge of honor.

Consider the following quotes of a few great Americans:

Patrick Henry
"I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging the future but by the past."

John F. Kennedy
"Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

Dwight D. Eisenhower
"A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both."

George Santayana
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Those of us who are conservative and traditional Americans would not take issue with any of these quotes, but secular-liberal Americans should sit up and take notice while bowing their heads in shame for they are forsaking America's past and its virtues of exceptionalism.

Consider some of the reasons as to what led to the decline and fall of the ancient Roman Empire:

* Public office seen as a burden
* Political unrest with the citizens

* Decline in interest in public affairs
* Low confidence in empire
* Disloyalty, lack of patriotism
* Emphasis on entertainment

* Decrease in general level of education among citizens

* Inflation
* Economy spread too thin
* Heavy tax burden
* Widening gap between rich and poor

* Threat from northern European tribes
* Lack of funds for defense
* Decline of loyalty among soldiers

What occurred with ancient Rome is currently being replicated by America. These same attributes that led to the decline and fall of ancient Rome are being played out right before our very eyes on a daily basis, and they are proof positive that we are forgetting the lessons of the past. Americans now value our privileges over our principles, and we are about to lose both. Our government leaders and half the populace are now asking what America can do for us rather than asking what we can do for our country. And last, but not least, our future is being judged because of the secular-liberals who are being permitted to run amok in this country as a direct result of their ignoring or mocking our past. The lamp that is guiding their traitorous feet is completely out.

Are you as frightened as I am? If you are not, you sure as hell should be! Are you fed up with all of the liberal psychobabble currently engulfing us? There is only one way out Patriots! Traditional Americans need to take the bull by the horns and return our country to the virtues of exceptionalism that have been in serious decline these past fifty years and counting. If we fail to keep these leftist wolves at bay, America will fall just like the ancient Roman Empire did.

My book, "The Sissification of America: A Fifty-Year Decline In American Exceptionalism," is the 2012 1st Place Gold Award recipient of the eLit Awards in the category of History. I encourage you to buy it and read it. The book is a tantalizing read and wake up call as to what we need to accomplish in order to rescue our country from the abyss. It is available in print and Kindle, and you can purchase it by clicking on the colorful book cover to the left of this blog. Become an activist. Get engaged. Do not sit back and be complacent. The list of patriotic, traditional Americans presented at the beginning of this blog were not lazy nor were they indifferent or complacent. Too much is at stake, and our very survival is on the line. I am not being an alarmist for this is the reality staring us in the face Patriots. The task before us is daunting but not impossible. Let us rise again in the spirit of 1776 and fight the good fight. That is precisely what the strong of heart are charged to do. The choice is ultimately up to you. Decide!

The Traditional American Movement

A number of Democratic Senators are retiring and will not run for re-election in 2014. This is a golden opportunity for conservatives to retake control of the Senate. Notice I did not say Republican control.  That is because there is a power struggle taking place for control of the Republican Party between moderates and conservatives. The moderates maintain they need to field candidates who are moderate if they are to win future elections. Uh huh! And that is why we were victorious in the presidential and senatorial elections in 2008 and 2012, correct? The conservatives, or traditional Americans, maintain we need to reverse course if our nation is to survive. Here are the tenets of the Traditional American

*  Traditional Americans will be proud to acknowledge and advocate for America's Judeo/Christian heritage and its traditional morality, and we will do so without making apologies.

*  We will not be ashamed to acknowledge and celebrate our country's vibrant and sacred holidays publicly such as Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Passover, etc. We will not ignore these sacred holidays within our public schools either.

*  We will fight to the death, if necessary, for the individual rights guaranteed the American people as stipulated in The Bill of Rights, especially our right to bear arms.

*  We will restore fidelity to the Constitution by remaining faithful to the original design, intent, and wording of our Founding Fathers when they crafted that sacred covenant between the American people and their government.

*  We will continue to use our own legal advocacy groups such as the American Center For Law and Justice, the Alliance Defense Fund, etc., to promote and defend our traditional customs, our mainstream religious values, and our religious civil rights guaranteed all of the American people in the First Amendment of the Constitution. We will strike a mighty blow for liberty and religious freedom rather than bow to the intolerant bigotry being promoted by the secular-progressives of this nation and their minions within the Democratic Party.

*  We will restore limited government and common sense back to our federal government that has been permitted to run amok as evidenced by its incessant trampling on the constitutional rights of individuals as well as states' rights.

*  We will untangle all business entrepreneurs from the snare of burdensome state and federal regulations so this country can once again thrive economically.

*  We will reduce confiscatory taxes on all individuals and businesses so additional mom-and-pop shops can be created and employ out of work Americans. Families will thrive as they too will be able to retain a larger share of their income that can be better spent in their own homes and local communities rather than being wasted on a plethora of federal programs that should not exist in the first place. The government that governs least governs best.

*  We will restore free market principles to our economy rather than continue to travel down the road of European-style socialism. We will bury once and for all the liberal philosophy of "social justice" which has crippled this nation and created a "class of dependency" whose members continually feed upon the state and federal government gravy trains at the expense of the rest of hard working Americans.

*  We will once again restore the American virtue that states, "You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves," and we will battle against the liberal forces that promote class warfare and class hatred.

*  We will re-industrialize America so we can once again be the envy of the world with regard to our manufacturing prowess and business acumen, while at the same time putting millions of Americans back to work.

*  We will see to it that we become energy independent once and for all by tapping a huge new geyser spewing forth vast natural resources within the boundaries of our own country in order that we may gradually wean ourselves from the teats of OPEC and the Middle East.

*  We will eventually wrestle public education from the headlocks of the secular-progressive leftists by exerting a significant and much needed conservative influence on the current system or by implementing "vouchers" and "school choice" in the very near future if all else fails.

*  By shrinking the scope and power of the federal government, we will significantly reduce our people's dependence on the government gravy train so they can once again take care of themselves and their own families with a renewed sense of pride rather than perpetuating the repugnant philosophy of "spreading the wealth."

*  Traditional Americans will see to it that our armed forces are sufficiently funded so that our men and women in uniform are well equipped to confront any foe with a crushing blow. No one will dare cross us without paying a heavy price for doing so!

These are the traits that define the traditional American. Regardless of what political party you belong to, if you agree with these core principles, you are a traditional American. In 2014 and beyond, we need to unite and elect men and women to political office on the state and federal levels who sincerely adhere to these core values and principles. Only then, my fellow Americans, will we be able to restore the traditional American virtues of exceptionalism that have undergone a serious decline in our great nation over the past fifty years. This is but one action plan offered in my book, The Sissification of America: A Fifty-Year Decline in American Exceptionalism. If you identify with these virtues, buy my book, read it, and help me spread the good news.

Burning Bridges to the Past-Leftist Style

Have you ever wondered why it is secular-liberals have such a disdain for America's past? During every local and national election, progressives mock America's past and ridicule their opponents, accusing conservatives of desiring to return our country back to its past as if all former things are evil and worthless in today's contemporary society. Ever wonder why it is that many of today's liberals maintain our Constitution is outdated and needs to be scrapped? Why do liberals roll their eyes in disgust when conservatives talk about American exceptionalism? Why do they want to undermine our Judaic/Christian heritage by taking God out of the Pledge of Allegiance, to site just one example. Why do they want our young people to be ignorant about America's past and greatness? Why do liberals continue to wage their annual war on Christmas? Well, the following quotations by a few of our Founding Fathers as well as the influential wife of John Adams, Abigail Adams, might shed some light on the subject as well as open your eyes with regard to the questions I have just posed!

"I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no
way of judging the future but by the past."
                                                                                 Patrick Henry

"There are only two creatures of value on the face of this earth; those with a commitment and
those who acquire the commitment of others."
                                                                                 John Adams

"How few there are who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough
to mend them."                                                        
                                                                                 Ben Franklin

"Learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought for with ardor and attended to
with diligence."
                                                                                 Abigail Adams

The following eleven quotes are from Thomas Jefferson:

"Honesty is the first chapter of the book of wisdom."
"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as
corrupt as Europe."
"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to
work and give to those who would not."
"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which
if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world."
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from
wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."

"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from
too much government."

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is,
as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of
patriots and tyrants."

"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which
he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."

"On every question of construction let us carry ourselves back to the time
when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the
debates, and instead of trying what meaning can be squeezed out of the text,
or invented against it, conform to the probable one which was passed."

These quotations pointedly answer the questions posed in the opening paragraph of this blog. Democrats do not want Americans to see them for who and what they really are because their philosophy as how best to govern America is diametrically opposed to the philosophy advocated by our Founding Fathers. To borrow a clever line from the movie, The Wizard of Oz: "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain! The great Oz has spoken!" The liberals despise our past, are embarrassed about it, and no longer want anything to do with the virtues that made our country truly exceptional. On the other hand, the above quotes are reflective of the political and economic philosophies of conservatives, not liberals who are tearing this country apart.

Progressives do not want our children to be educated about the greatness of our past in our public schools. They do not want patriotic assemblies presented to our children that would inspire a patriotic love for our country. Gone are the teaching of patriotic hymns such as, 'America the Beautiful,' 'God Bless America,' 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic,' etc. I seriously doubt most of today's children would even know the lyrics to such songs--songs we proudly sang regularly in public school when I was growing up in Great Falls, Montana during the 1960s. Gone are the Nativity Pageants in our schools and the Creche displays in our communities during the Christmas season. The general populace as well as many of our progressive politicians are ignorant of our Declaration of Independence and the Constitution because of a lack of emphasis being placed on these sacred documents in many of our public schools. Our Founding Fathers would be appalled with what secular-liberals and atheists are currently advocating for America while shoving their vile secular-progressive psychobabble down everyone's throats with the full support of liberal politicians, liberal judges, and liberal special interest groups such as the ACLU, etc. We have mass shootings occurring right now in our public and private schools by deranged and Godless youth, rather than prayer and brief Bible reading which occurred during the majority of our Republic's history. Our culture is dying. Our youth is dying. Our country is dying, and all we can muster are pathetic, lame excuses for all of this hogwash while our political leaders and the majority of the American people are turning blind eyes and deaf ears as to the reasons why such tragedies are occurring.

My book, 'The Sissification of America: A Fifty-Year Decline in American Exceptionalism,' contains many of the above quotes and serves as a clarion call for the American people as to how we might rekindle A City upon a Hill. We had better turn things around now my fellow Americans or we will perish as a nation, or we will follow in the footsteps of socialistic Europe which is what liberals truly desire for this nation. America rebelled against the tyranny of England by declaring its independence from British tyranny in 1776. Liberals, are you listening? Patriots, are you prepared to get your hands dirty and fight the good fight to save our country from those who want to destroy it from within? Where are the muscular Christians who are willing to reprise the old hymn, 'Onward Christian Soldiers,' and take back our country from those traitors who want us to reflect the values, politics, moral relativism, and socialistic economic priorities of Western Europe? If we end up going down the path of the decline of the ancient Roman Empire my dear Americans, we will have no one to blame but ourselves! Complacency is our worst enemy my fellow Patriots. May God help us!!

Storm Clouds Over The American Horizon

The following excerpts are from a former president's Independence Day oration-delivered while campaigning as a candidate for Congress in 1946. See if you can determine who it was that delivered these words to the American people. The answer may surprise you!

"Whenever freedom has been in danger, Americans with a deep sense of patriotism have ever been willing to stand at Armageddon and strike a blow for liberty and the Lord...

...The right of the individual against the state has ever been one of our most cherished political principles. The American Constitution has set down for all men to see the essentially Christian and American principle, that there are certain rights held by every man which no government and no majority, however powerful, can deny. Conceived in Grecian thought, strengthened by Christian morality and stamped indelibly into American political philosophy, the right of the individual against the state is the keystone of our Constitution. Each man if free.
He is free in thought.
He is free in expression.
He is free in worship. ...

May God grant that, at some distant date, on this day, and on this platform, the orator may be able to say that these are still the great qualities of the American character and that they have prevailed."

Re-read the above closing statement of this prominent American politician and ponder it for a brief moment. Can we honestly say that the great qualities of the American character are in serious danger in today's political climate? You bet they are my fellow Americans! I personally question as to whether or not they will prevail much longer. Look how far we have come as a nation in a relative short period of time. Want some other examples? Let us take a brief look at a couple of shocking examples that have recently transpired within some of the nation's public schools.

A few years back, the local school board of Portland, Maine, approved the distribution of contraceptives to the students in its middle schools without parental notification or approval. In 2007, there was a drug and sex scandal at Boulder High School in Boulder, Colorado, that made national headlines when it authorized a highly controversial assembly for its student body without parental notification or approval. According to Bill O'Reilly of Fox News, four guest presenters discussed the virtues of participating in promiscuous sex, drug taking, and breaking the law by experimenting with the illegal drugs of marijuana and ecstacy. These are but a couple of examples of how the nation's schools have sunk to an all time low in standards and morality during the course of the past fifty years, and these examples are but the tip of an enormous iceberg that is poised to sink America as if she were the HMS Titanic! How can anyone seriously maintain America is on the right path economically, politically, or morally? The vast majority of the American people maintain America is headed in the wrong direction, yet half of the electorate voted to re-elect President Obama and a larger Democratic presence in the U.S. Senate.

The aforementioned examples are featured in chapter one of my book, 'The Sissification of America: A Fifty-Year Decline In American Exceptionalism.' Not only does my book educate Americans about our country's historical virtues of exceptionalism, how they came about, and why they are in decline, but it also presents an action plan as to how we can reverse the dangerous course we are on. If we are going to survive, we need to circumvent the storm clouds on the American horizon. We can either follow in the footsteps of the decline of the ancient Roman Empire, or we can rekindle A City upon a Hill. The choice is ours to make. We hold our own destiny in the palms of our hands. Are you still curious who it was that delivered the above excerpts in his Independence Day oration in 1946?
It was John F. Kennedy.
If you are surprised by this, buy my book and be prepared to read many other surprises that are in store for you as the book will certainly not be a disappointment. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines!
