This from reader Truth Hound:
On Saturday, March 28, 2009, my family and I went to thein Long Beach California. In front of the store, a man handed me one of these cards:
To be honest, I actually glanced at the one he handed me, ripped it into tiny pieces, threw it back at him and loudly said "over my dead body, Pal!"
I know that conservative Tea Parties are being planned nation-wideand other dates. I myself plan to participate.
I feel strongly that what we are currently witnessing in America is no less than a global, socialist coup d'état by those in the highest offices of our government and most sacred institutions. I can clearly see the dismantling of ourbeing funded by labor unions, the brianwashing of our youth by radical forces in the hallowed halls of our Universities, and a complicit voice by a negligent, partisan media.
These Tea Parties are mere baby steps in our attempts to preserve the liberties that the current administration seems hell-bent on relegating to their own twisted dust bin of history. But you have to start somewhere.
It occurs to me that the people who printed that attached card also believe that you have to start somewhere. But I shudder to envision the America my children will have to endure if these people have their way. Surely there exists a majority sentiment in the United States that THEY MUST BE STOPPED IN THEIR TRACKS.
So would it not be just as important (if not moreso) for those in our conservative movement to "crash" THEIR parties in addition to holding our own? It seems so bizarre to have to point out in my lifetime that anti-capitalist forces are gaining a foothold in the hearts of the populous. And it MUST fall to us to walk right into the hives if we are to enlighten our neighbors and illuminate the evils of their twisted view of their "perfect" society.
Right now, I'm not seeing or hearing ANYONE pointing out how destructive Socialism has been to the communities that have embraced it FROM THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD TO LIVE WITH IT. Surely there are myriad stories that can be given a real face. Real people who have seen the horrors and enslavement of people in countries where fear is the only motivation to productivity, and all aspirations to excel and achieve are choked by Socialism.
Right now, we seem to be thrusting headlong towards our worst fears. That stupid card, if not counteracted by real facts IS WORKING! Frustrated and angry people are being shown this road as being the best solution to our current. And in their ignorance, vulnerability and desperation, they are BELIEVING IT!.
For the sake of our nation, let's please show up to this (and any other Socialist) event with our OWN cards, flyers and posters. Those attending must leave KNOWING that their efforts will be in vain. We will NOT yield our liberties to their bondage.
Our collective message will reach Washington when our shameless mainstream media decides our Tea Parties are newsworthy. And so far, I'm not holding my breath.
But a gullible citizen from one city over walking into this campus looking for "hope and change" is more likely to snap to their senses if greeted by a brochure which chronicles the evils of Socialism.
Shame on us for getting to the point where an average guy like me has to beg his brethren to evangelize on the behalf of Democracy and the freedoms our forefathers fought and died to uphold. But I implore you to spread the word of this meeting and show up armed with truth and patriotic fervor.
