Tea Party Conservatives Respond

Last week a dozen Tea Party activists signed on to a letter to Congress urging them to abandon social issues and focus exclusively on economic matters. The letter was sponsored by the homosexual rights advocacy group GOProud. This week, more than 150 Tea Party organizers sent a separate letter to congressional leaders rebuking the GOProud letter, stating “America is a conservative country. We expect conservative leadership…”

The letter lists seven demands:

*Defund ObamaCare;

*Seriously reduce spending

*Defund the “liberal-political complex” including ACORN and Planned Parenthood

*Disallow any increase in the debt ceiling without a

plan to cut spending

*Permanently extend the Bush tax cuts

*Vote down amnesty legislation

*Retain the 1993 law banning open homosexuality in the military

Are You More Patriotic Today Than You Were 10 Years Ago?

I am posting this late in the evening of July 4th, 2010 so many of you will have already celebrated America’s 234th birthday.  This was so good so I just wanted to share it with all of you.  God Bless America!

This Sunday we will celebrate Independence Day—the 4th of July, 2010

Leo Strauss wrote that America became the only country in history founded, “in explicit opposition to Machiavellian principles”—which simply means the Founders and citizens of the colonies rejected the crass, imposing power politics of the King of England.

For 234 years, their beliefs and understanding of basic natural principles has served to allow America to become the greatest nation in the history of the world.

Exceptional.

The American concept was essentially founded on three principles or core beliefs.

1. “…all men are created equal”

The Founders knew we were not all literally equal, each is born with different capabilities and attributes—to different stations in life. We are, however, created equal in the sense that all men and women have the same “natural” rights, granted to them by God.

Our freedom and independence is first and foremost predicated on the recognition of God and His existence.

2. “…endowed by their creator”

They not only acknowledged God, they recognized Him as Creator.

The core principle of the Declaration of Independence and the principle of natural rights upon which America was founded is that there is a higher moral order upon which the laws of man must be based.

The “authority” of “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God” referred to the Will of God as displayed by the natural order of the world.

The Founders believed power comes from God and is loaned to government.

The Declaration says, “That to secure these rights governments are instructed among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

3. “…the pursuit of happiness”

The Declaration does not say that we have a “right” to be happy.

It says we have the right to Pursue happiness.

And what did “happiness” mean to those who penned the Declaration?

The idea of “happiness” at the time was most closely associated with the idea of pursuing “wisdom and virtue.”

It was not, in their minds, the unrestrained self indulgence that many associate with happiness today.

The Founders understood that government could not give people “happiness”.

The concept of “pursuing happiness” or pursuing your dreams has attracted people from all over the world—from Asia to Europe to Africa, and yes, Mexico, people continue to come.

While the “enemy within” seems to hate America and seeks to “remake” it, America remains a magnate. People keep coming to America.

Take a moment this weekend and thank God for America–it’s past, it’s present and it’s future under God.

I have drawn from a column written by Newt Gingrich, entitled The Legacy of the Declaration of Independence for my comments above. I recommend you read it.

Also, if you can take a moment between picnics, parades, fireworks and barbecue this weekend, why not consider actually reading the text of the The Declaration of Independence? Read it to your kids or grand kids.

It really only takes a couple of minutes. Reading it will cause you to more closely identify with our Founders as we face the challenges of our present day America.

God bless you and this great country called America.

Be Vigilant. Be Free. Be Blessed.

SARAH ROCKS BOSTON TEA PARTY AND THE SOUTHERN REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE

Sarah and the Boston Tea Party are a match made in heaven!

##########################################

She was also the keynote speaker at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference this past week.  Here’s that speech >>>

Palin: Brings Conservatives to Their Feet at SRLC

SLRC2010TeleprompterFrom http://www.townhall.com:

Palin didn’t hint at her 2012 plans in her keynote address to SRLC, but she did provide some meaty thoughts on energy policy, possibly her most important campaign issue if she does decide to run.

“Republicans need to hit the road in 2010, and show America what an all-of-the-above energy policy looks like,” she said.

Alaska is a leading producer of crude oil, and Palin has been an outspoken opponent of Obama’s cap-and-trade proposals, which have been a stalled agenda item for his administration. But Republicans have the opportunity to steal that issue away from him, said Palin. More
