Ordinary People Answering the Call to Restore America
By: Lloyd Marcus
My faith was tested when I awoke Nov. 5th 2008 to learn that Barack Hussen Obama was president of the United States. I had just returned home from performing at rallies across America on a national â€œStop Obama Tourâ€ with Our Country Deserves Better PAC. Our team made great headway for McCain/Palin in several states.
Frustratingly, the BIG MONEY Obama campaign kept coming behind us and winning back his numbers. I found peace in the knowledge that God is in control. God did not wake up and said, â€œOh no, Obama won!â€
Obama’s implementation of his far left socialist agenda was immediate and severe. Our president obviously has a disdain for America, in it’s current form, and is aggressively seeking to change it.
Still, I see the blessing. The far left agenda of Secular Progressives has gone unopposed for far too long. Spread by casual contact, political correctness has been allowed to infect many areas of our lives. Politicians on both sides of the aisle have betrayed our values and principles.
The Obama administration epitomizes EVERYTHING wrong with big government and politics. Obama’s overreaching into the private sector, outrageous spending, hijacking of our freedom, liberty and culture is the â€œstraw that broke the camel’s backâ€. Finally, the once silent majority has said, â€œENOUGHâ€! Time to take out the trash and TAKE BACK AMERICA!
No marketing firm or big money political machine could have started this spontaneous grassroots movement. It is solely driven by ordinary hard working Americans acting out of passion, concern and love for their country; giving time, energy and funds from their â€œnot so deepâ€ pockets. Protest and activism is NOT in their nature. But, these folks are patriots who REFUSE to sit passively by as America is transformed into something unrecognizable and European. Obama’s vision for America is anathema to the vision of our Founding Fathers.
Patriots of all races, political parties and walks of life across America, are coming together and doing their part; blogging, newbies entering the political arena, organizing tea parties, writing letters and calling representatives.
While we are many, I would like to â€œgive a shout outâ€ to a few of these American heroes.
Teresa Valdes is a Cuban born proud American successful real estate agent. The down turn in her industry has made earning a living quite challenging. Nonetheless, Teresa has decided to run for State Representative Florida House. â€œI believe the Constitution belongs to We The People â€“ that it protects our God given rights of Liberty and Freedom…â€ says Teresa in her Cuban accent.
Heather Bryden in Santa Barbara, CA lost her venue and permit for a Tea Party, the DAY BEFORE. Heather and her committee refused to quit and their rally happened as scheduled. I performed at Heather’s tea party. Despite the last minute location change, twelve hundred excited patriots showed up…IN SUPER LIBERAL SANTA BARBARA!
Frances Rice, is a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, a lawyer and chairman of the National Black Republican Association NBRA.info. Frances is fighting in the political trenches revealing the truth to minorities that socialism is NOT their friend.
I performed at a Tea Party in Lakewood Ranch Florida organized by small business owner, Gene Sweeney. You gotta LOVE this MAN! A Viet Nam veteran and served with the Office of Special Investigations (OSI), a true patriot. Gene is a no nonsense, say what you mean â€“ mean what you say, get it done kind of guy. Gene’s organization is committed to holding politicians to their word. SaltoftheEarthUSA.org
To ALL my courageous patriot brothers and sisters, you have my love, respect and admiration. God truly does use ordinary people. A long time ago, to slay an arrogant giant, He used a faith-filled boy and one smooth stone.
