TAKE A BREAK
With the exception of Pat Buchanan’s columns and IMPRIMIS, I have been fasting/taking a break from media politics since Nov 6. I have not been listening to or reading Fox News, Dick Morris, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Ann Coulter or any of the other popular political pundits. Nor will I be seeking re-election as Republican County Chair or member of the Republican State Committee.
This is not a retreat; this is just a strategic step back to help regain a constitutional conservative perspective on what has become a house divided by two competing world views: (1) the presidency and the Senate in the hands of one party and (2) the House of Representatives and most governorships in the hands of the other.
For the Republican Party to become anything more than Democrat-Lite, it (or something that replaces it) must clearly articulate and represent the world view of the Founders of our Republic. This will take a realignment, or reformation, of what could/should have been a majority coalition of constitutional conservative political activists Nov 6.
NEW POLITICAL UNITY
Either from within the Republican Party, or from a coalition that forms outside of it, we must establish a new political unity based on the core constitutional principles of individual rights and limited government.
The problem is that we’re headed towards an unsustainable limitless government by elite bureaucratic edict, a government “of the government, by the government, and for the government” that will inevitably become tyrannical and crush individual rights.
The solution is for Americans who believe we are one nation under God with inalienable individual rights to unite in opposition to the secular-humanistic, relativistic, liberal, progressive world view, characterized by an expanding government of bureaucratic rules and regulations that have the full effect of law without checks, balances or accountability to legislatures or the people who elect them.
KEEP YOUR POWDER DRY
I trust there are others like me who are keeping their powder dry, waiting and watching for the new majority to form; some signs are already emerging from our friends at Hillsdale.
PAY ATTENTION TO BUSINESS
For now, I’ll be focusing a majority of time and attention on business, church and family matters; not sure how long this fast will last.
LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM.
