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.
