My Response to the Call of "The Loft" at GOPUSA.com to be Civil.
I am tired of being told to be "civil". Until about a decade ago I would try to support the GOP. I'd work hard to get a conservative elected only to have a well funded RINO go against them (shall we forget Spectre v. Toomey in PA?), and then if we succeeded the RINOs would tell everyone "vote your conscience if you don't like the conservatism of our candidate".
Gingrich shut down the government until he decided to be more civil to Rather, Brokaw, and Jennings instead of the base. Bush is DESTROYING our military in a perpetual yet growing stalemate, but maybe that is a good thing if I want a smaller government. The dollar is crashing and people are being forclosed and thrown out of their homes courtesy of GOPreenspan. And you tell ME to be civil?
I suppose I should be. I should follow my Lord's example - Jesus was civil to Judas when he was (literally) sold out. And what meaning has "being civil" in a time and place where civilization is being destroyed as we stand back and watch? Perhaps Thomas Paine should have been more "civil" when he wrote "Common Sense"? There is a time for civility, and a time for righteous indignation.
And there is a time for action. For now, it is to support Ron Paul, and encourage support for him in whatever form it takes. Let the cheaters, cowards, and sellouts be the one to keep silent. Let freedom ring! Loudly! Raucously!
Our civility has been repaid with apathy and ignorance. Perhaps the alternatives may fail, but it won't be for lack of effort. We will not be ignored. We will not settle for empty promises from people who have no honor. That is all we got from these complainers for two decades. No more. It is your turn to bow and do what you are told - and we are doing the telling. We were the good little republicans, now it is your turn to follow as you've utterly failed to lead.
We are here to restore the republic. The republic which generations have fought and died for. Where there are markers over graves where people spilled their blood for something even more precious. Not the comfortable take care of me socialism, but raw and hard liberty. Freedom. In all its terrible glory and power.
We shall return to the civilization of our forefathers. The design of Civil government based on God and reason. Then America will again be "Civil". And we will have the freedom to be Civil again. Civil? You don't know the meaning of the word. But we do. We really do. Come and learn from us. Join us. Return to Civility in America at her foundations. Not in the petty squabbles over a few political bones. Such is not worthy of anyone who would even pretend at being a patriot.
