Are you a Conservative? Are you perhaps the kind of Conservative that believes in fiscal Conservatism, less government, REAL fair taxation, American Exceptionalism of which a strong military is essential AND social conservatism?
Perhaps you are the kind of Conservative that is perceived by Left Wing Democrats as racist bigots as represented by the KKK, various American Nazi groups, violent survivalists preparing to war against the U.S. government and so on.
We real Conservatives view the later group as radical and really not associated with Conservatism. YET Leftists propagandize that Tea Party and Social Conservatives have the same traits as the KKK, Nazis, White Supremacists and aberrant cults that have a militaristic view of Christianity.
After the failure of the Republican Party to convince voters that Barack Hussein Obama is a deceptive Marxist-Socialist on the scale of Gramsci, Alinsky and Cone; I am convinced that the Real Conservatives need to become radicalized. NOT AS THE RACIST-BIGOTS THAT TRY TO CLAIM THE CONSERVATIVE MONIKER!
Have you noticed the political talk now is that Obama needs to seek a compromise-consensus of give and take that both Democrats and Republicans can grudgingly live with? Rep. Boehner as the Chairman of the House has publicly stated that he is ready to get to work on this compromise-consensus of give and take.
Let’s be honest. In the short term compromise-consensus on small details will be essential for government and the rule of law to operate smoothly rather gridlock punishing those in need who lean toward Democrats and lean toward Republicans.
BUT the reality is this nation needs to find the path that ends the polarization in American politics. I am certain Dems and the GOP can both say amen to that. It is the journey of de-polarization that gets Dems and the Conservative GOP steamed. Did you notice I wrote “Conservative GOP”?
There is a reality that Conservatives have lived with for too long after the Reagan Administration. Conservative make up the rank and file of the Republican Party and it is the GOP business as usual elites that make up the leadership of the Republican Party.
It is the GOP elites that willingly push compromise even though the Conservative Base wants to counter Obama transformative change with Christian-Conservative_Values-Limited_Government transformative restoration. In fact I would go so far as to say that the GOP elites are responsible for polarizing America because of the tendency to acquiesce to the desires of Leftist Dems. The Elitist GOP was willing to allow the American Left to chip away at American Values as embodied by Christianity and the Limited Government vision of the Founding Fathers.
This is where a Leftist usually goes hysterical because they want nothing to do with a Christian heritage. Hysterical Leftists take the stand that most of the Founding Fathers had non-Christian Deist religious beliefs and desired to keep the Christian religion out of government.
Of course this is historical revisionism by the Left. American Deism was quite different from the European atheistic Deism particularly of French origins. American Deists had a tremendous respect for the Christian Values that are derived from the Bible. American Deists were simply not big on believing the supernatural acts of Divine miracles.
Even though our Founding Fathers definitely had a penchant for secular government with ideas primarily from John Locke but others of Locke’s contemporaries in establishing an experimental democratic representative republican government, the Founding Fathers also believed Christian Morality was the cornerstone of a good and civil society. Atheism was viewed with disdain leading to an immoral society that ceases to be good and civil.
At least four American presidents have misattributed the following quote to de Tocqueville… “I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers, and it was not there . . . . Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.” Though a misattribution, it does not make it any less so. It touches the core of whom and what we are as Americans. (The Watchman, by Robert E. Freer, Jr; 12-12-2011; TheCharlestonTeaParty.org. For clarity see The Tocqueville Fraud. Bold Emphasis Mine)
I was taught de Tocqueville said this but it seems President Dwight D. Eisenhower said it in a speech as embellished by a speech writer. It is irrelevant who actually said “… if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”
The Republican Elites (aka Republican Establishment) and definitely the controlling interests of the Democratic Party have lost sight on what makes America great.
My fellow Conservative let’s embrace the kind of radicalness that our Founding Fathers embraced. We are not fringe Right Wingers as the Dems paint us. The fringe is reserved for those that place prejudice above Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Let the Left call us radical standing for fiscal conservatism, limited government and social conservatism. Let’s be radical and depart the Republican Party and together as a political party in which Conservative Principles do not yield to business as usual GOP Elites willing to give up more than we can get from Obama’s Left.
I’ve been watching the Fox News pundits. They seem to be blaming Romney’s loss on the Republican failure to court Hispanics and Blacks that have Conservative Values but voted Democrat based on Obama’s deception that he has their backs merely because they are a minority. Obviously there is some truth in that.
I also heard a Fox News pundit say that over 60% of America’s eligible voting youth went with Obama and 36% of said group went with the Republicans. Conservatives need to tap into the Conservative Hispanics and Blacks. AND we need to convert America’s youth to the reality of just what Obama’s transformative change really is. In regard to the youth I found a Bradlee Dean article that addresses Social Conservatism and America’s youth. I am cross posting at SlantRight 2.0 right of these thoughts on departing the Republican Party.
How do we Conservatives pull off that kind of radicalism? Those thoughts are for another day. Perhaps you can help by sending your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Exclusive: Bradlee Dean urges the right to capture the youth if they want to survive
By BRADLEE DEAN
November 8, 2012
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same. – President Ronald Reagan
On Tuesday, Barack Hussein Obama, who has the worst presidential record in history, won a second term. The day after the elections, CNN blurted out the truth in their confusion and came out with a telling report which revealed that the No. 1 reason Romney lost the election was his failure to capture the youth vote. CNN stated:
“Younger voters and minorities came to the polls at levels not far off from the historic coalition Obama assembled in 2008. The reality caught off-guard Republicans who banked on a more monolithic voting body sending them to the White House – and who had based their polling on that assumption. The outcome revealed a stark problem for Republicans: If they don’t broaden their tent, they won’t move forward.”
Obama took home 60 percent of the youth vote, while Romney only took 36 percent.
Obama would not have won without the youth vote, since 19 percent of all the votes came from ages 18 to 29.
In July, I wrote an article entitled, “Can conservatives win without youth vote?” I mentioned that if the conservative populace desires to be successful, they must sow into the next generation:
“I say to those who are willing to fight for our nation and put this incumbent administration out of business: You must understand this generation does not look like you, they do not talk like you, they do not act like you, and they don’t believe like you. This generation, as you know, has been subjected to everything and protected from nothing. The ball has been dropped, and it must be picked up again. It is time you reach out to the youth in a way they can understand, for to ignore them is to bring shame upon yourselves. You must get in the face of this generation and love them enough to tell them the truth. There is no other way.”
In August, I was at the Republican National Convention being interviewed on radio row. On station after station, I talked about the importance of capturing the youth vote.
Even last week I mentioned how dictators of the past used the youth to push their agendas. Out with the old and in with the new – capitalism to communism.
And now, here we are experiencing another failure because conservatives are not reaching the most important demographic. They thought that the economy and playing the political moderate was the answer. They were sadly mistaken. They do not discern the times (Jeremiah 6:16).
The state-run media would have you believe the youth do not want to hear absolutes. I can tell you from experience, having done over 338 high school and college assemblies, the next generation is all ears to the truth. I have seen firsthand that when anyone tries to squander their God-given conscience, they rebel against it in a righteous manner. I have seen numerous students who have been converted instantly on social issues such as abortion and homosexuality, simply because no one had ever told them anything other than what they are inundated with through the state-run media.
Simply put, they are not following the Constitution because they are not told about the Constitution (Exodus 18:21). Many of them do not even know that we are a republic, and then America wonders why they are ruled by opinion (democracy) rather than law.
To the moderate conservative, your political games and your methodology are over with. You failed the test. Game over.
While many professed conservatives are stuck in the same old worthless ideology, they have an entire generation that is ready and willing to sacrifice their all for the truth’s sake. They are not politically correct. They do not want to hear about methods that don’t work. They want to live for something; they want to know who they are so they can know where they are going.
America, men follow courage, not titles. Now is not the time to sit down; now is the time to stand up and lead. Now is the time to take our country back. God is proving His people.
“In the 34-plus years I have been in education, I don’t recall an all-school assembly capturing an audience so completely.”
– Principal of Mount Ayr High School, Iowa
