Rally ‘Round The Flag: Lighting The Brush Fires Edition

05 April 2010 @ 17:58

An occasional feature designed to buck-up the Wolverines as they battle to defeat the forces of Absurdistan…

-Over at The Other McCain, Smitty issues a dispatch from the conn to all of us seadogs to remember who runs the HQ in this battle:

…We The People cannot expect to delegate the preservation of the Republic to the GOP.

We The People have to follow and draw attention to the Tea Party Express, the Andrew Breitbarts, and activities like the Tax Day Tea Party to inform the GOP in Congress that there is still a country worth the struggle against fascism.

In other words: Never forget that The Stupid Party works for us.

-But how do we get real, effective, and, most importantly, lasting control of the GOP?  Ran has a damn good answer:

It’s one thing for the Tea Party folks to “mob” the Capitol – but it is vital that they demand to be heard in local Republican nominations processes and that they demand local nominations and state primaries reforms. That is the first key to success: Own the Republicans from the inside.

The second key to success is to revamp Republican nominations standards and methodology: We must not permit the media and our adversaries choose for us our candidates. We must control our own candidate selection process.

From without, we can be divided for conquer….

A whole bunch of mini-invasions have to be launched at the local, county/district, and state levels.  This is a long process and will take a lot of time and effort.  As we’re thrusting one way [gaining control of the Congress via the 2010 Elections], we have to be thrusting another way to do as Ran suggests.

-Anticipating the dirty campaign the Left will wage against us, Carol, over at No Sheeples Here, issues a clarion call:

When the haunting voices of our Founding Fathers with their warnings about tyranny mix with the voices of today’s politicians who demonize us with their scathing epithets, it sets brush fires in people’s minds.

This president and his minions are trying to drown us out. We cannot let that happen. …I hear the voices of the wise men who sacrificed so much to create a land of boundless freedom—this America. I will not be drowned out no matter how much they try to demonize you and me.

Keep the mind fires burning.

-Stuart Schwartz takes his turn at the trumpet:

Okay. Obamanation won this round of the ObamaCare battle. The first of the Democratic equivalent of the Ten Plagues of Egypt has been passed by a president and Congress straight out of a Michael Moore documentary. Harold Witkov of American Thinker calls this a gift from the “man who thinks of himself as our Pharaoh.”

But he will not win the war. He will not win because American exceptionalism is alive and well, as is God. Yes, I know that this sounds awesomely Neanderthal and about as politically correct as eating Twinkies and playing dodgeball…or, perhaps, eating Twinkies while playing dodgeball.

But, to echo one of those dead white men from the Revolutionary War, when called upon by the British to surrender, we “have not yet begun to fight.” And fight we will against Obama’s expressed intent, as Rep. John Dingell (D-MI) proclaimed with brutal honesty to “control the people.”

Bottom line: Obama is, indeed, out to destroy the freedom and culture that makes us an exceptional nation. Popular FOX News commentator Bill O’Reilly says flatly: “The battle lines are clearly drawn: individual freedom versus federal power.”

Well, guess what? “We the people,” as the framers of our constitution put it, do not want to be controlled. We the people do not consent to your “fundamental transformation” of our nation. And we the people will win…because God is on our side.

Indeed He is.  He gave us Free Will and, therefore, The Lord will favor anyone who preserves, protects, and defends that gift.  Of this, I have no doubt.

-And finally, for this episode, Smitty again:

The Judas Congress is today what the British Parliament was in the 1770s: a distant, un-representative pack of louts. And the Tea Parties, which are a peaceful analog of Washington’s Colonial Army, are not backing down. If you read The Glorious Cause, you realize that Washington’s army won by merely sustaining its existence. By refusing to lose to Royal forces, time was on Washington’s side.

The modern Progressive louts, the Democrats and these GOP squishes that are already trying to cut their deals, promise to be highly entertaining as time drags on, the Tea Parties rise, and Progressive elites sink.

Let us all pledge to REFUSE TO LOSE.


We will welcome to our numbers the loyal, true and brave,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
And although he may be poor, not a man shall be a slave,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

The Union forever!
Hurrah boys hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star,
While we rally round the flag, boys
Rally once again
Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom!
