H/T to Stacy on the Right for alerting me to this great video which dissects the crime stats which are being used to lie to us about the society in which we live. Remember, there are lies, damn lies and statistics, and politicians will always use statistics to drive their own agendas. Be sure you know the truth.
Bill Whittle gives a forward looking discussion shortly after the election on where we need to go next. His view, and mine, is that we need to engage as a cultural movement so the political victories will take care of themselves. We must engage on the cultural battleground or we will continue to lose the political fights as well. Make no mistake though, the war is a cultural one, in which the political fights are mere skirmishes. Get your game face on. #War
University of Mobile version of the traditional Christmas Carol. Merry Christmas.
As conservatives we must take back the culture. One way to do that is to literally stand up and perform our values. In both of these videos religious individuals use flash mobs take to public spaces, malls, during Christmas time in order to inject the Christ, back into the commercialization of Christmas holiday.
As moving as these video are they also provide a way forward and possible strategy for political conservatives. The videos both begin with an individual taking a stand by raising their voice, which then allows other individuals to join in. Some of those people are part of the flash mob, but some are not, and others gain comfort and solace just from seeing the demonstration of faith and belief. The videos are also designed to be shared via YouTube so that the message can reach father over time and space than the incident in that mall on that day.
We must find similar ways to perform our traditional American values in public and give people an opportunity to see that they are not alone.
This video is an amazing testament to the human spirit. I also see it as something that can give hope to those of us who think our best days as a country are behind us. We may have let the muscles of liberty atrophy to the point where we feel we can no longer walk without the braces or crutches of government assistance. However, if we are willing to strive for a better future, one clearly awaits us. It won’t be easy, nothing worth doing ever is, but it is worth the effort.
Enjoy the video.
Bill Whittle provides an excellent post-mortem on the Romney Campaign and what the GOP must do to win in the future.
Gird your loins and prepare for the cultural battle ahead. The Greatest Generation in England and the U.S. had it much tougher than us. Man Up.
Produced for the Goldwater campaign as a televised address in the final days of the 1964 Presidential race this speech is still stands as one of the greatest single articulations of conservative thought. We too are at our own time for choosing. We are in the middle of a war for our country. There are others who have fought before us, and others who will continue the fight after we are gone. Now is our time. Choose wisely.
A classic example of the power of the market made simple by Milton Friedman. It is this power which will make America great again, if only we let it.
Mitt Romney’s speech today in West Allis, WI. Take the time to listen and share to what the future could be.
