I am a Texas Conservative.
TexasConservatives.org is certainly a “grassroots” effort. An effort whose vision it is to educate and spark thoughtful, respectful, intelligent and civil debate. Civil debate that will be necessary to solve the economic, social, geopolitical problems that some believe are likely to soon overwhelm this nation.
If you consider yourself a “Texan” and you consider yourself a “Conservative” , then we would ask you to join us and subscribe to TexasConservatives.org by providing your email address to the right.
In what is today, at all levels; Federal, State, County and City; a financially over-extended and dysfunctional government, we must be willing to make difficult decisions effecting our future as a nation.
If we as a nation are going to consider “scrapping” our Republic ideology in favor of a more Socialist, Communist, Marxist ideology; we need to make sure that the decision is a conscious and educated decision. One that the people as a whole agree with and we must still guarantee the protection of the minority… and it must be done peacefully, within the system of government in place.
It is however our government today that is stagnated with its politics, special-interest control and the self-serving politician’s who can focus no further down the road than their own next election.
“We the People” though have to take the responsibility in that we continue to elect and re-elect these same establishment “bought and paid for” politicians to represent us.
Now our own government is moving to label as terrorists, those who sill favor a Republic. Conservatives who still believe our Constitution should be the “law of the land”. Those that would stand up and oppose the direction that this nation is being taken, those “radical and extreme” patriots of yesterday, should today be dealt with as subversive dissidents according to our own government.
Albert Einstein famously defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. Has the average American citizen/voter gone “insane”? If you examine what the American people as a whole have at risk today, and recognize the overwhelming apathy still rampant, perhaps it could be argued they have. As a Texas Conservative, I believe that it’s still a matter of education.
“This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved.
It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins.”
I believe this nation has lost its ability to recognize truth or stand on any principles of absolute truth. We no longer hear it from our politicians, we are told that God’s word isn’t truth, we are told that our Constitution and our Bill of Rights isn’t truth. We are told and assured that it is the government that will protect us and take care of us. The idea of principles based on the idea of an absolute truth has become problematic for the average American to process.
Without the ability to accept an absolute truth you no longer have a solid foundation. I would use mathematics as an example. An absolute truth is that 2+2=4, it is a constant in that it never changes and once you have a foundation that is a solid constant, it can be built on.
The founding principle that this nation, this Republic, was built on was an absolute truth. It was the cornerstone if you will for the entire Constitution and Bill of Rights… that we as human beings are granted by our CREATOR the unalienable rights to Life, Liberty, Property and the Pursuit of our happiness. That no man, no government, can take these rights without the due process of established law.
As we watch today, with the ever-expanding role that government is forcing itself upon us, we are left to wonder how did the American people so willingly allow our government to degrade to the inept and laughable body it has, as a collective whole, become today?
There does however appear to be an ever now expanding number of Americans waking up to the “storm clouds brewing on the horizon”. They can no longer be ignored. Just within the last week or so our President has refused to point-blank say “No, I will NOT kill American citizens with drones without the due process of law.” Are there others awake to see the similarities between pre-WWII Germany in 1938 and what is happening today in this country?
Our own government is quickly now rushing to tighten its grip and is rushing to set the ground work for future moves against our Republic. It seems that in every direction we’ve turned for the past several years, we find ourselves asking why something is being done the way it is. We see where something less than 10% of the people feel like Congress is doing a good job… gee no wonder… because they’re NOT doing their job. We see where legislation not wanted by the majority of the American people has become law. ObamaCare still favors a greater than 60% disapproval rate among voters. We are lied to daily when we are told that the 2.3% reduction in the increase projected for spending is somehow a “cut” in spending… only in Washington.
What will it take for the American people to say “no more”?
As TexasConservatives.org hopefully grows in subscribers and followers, maybe we can help open eyes, educate and motivate those who still don’t understand the threat, be a voice of reason to those willing to listen. For those that are not willing, author Ayn Rand famously wrote:
“Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Do not count on them. Leave them alone.”
