It's a Civil War: What We Do Now

Subject: txt 1st 2010 hstry edu vals -
A terrible thing happened to America on Sunday, March 21, 2010. The country took its biggest step ever down a road diametrically opposed to its original intent of keeping the state small so that the individual can be free and great.

Therefore, in this unprecedented crisis of values, this is what needs to be done:

1. Know and teach America's core values. We got to this point solely because over the past few generations, Americans have forgotten the values that have made America distinctive and great... [snip]

2. Recognize that we are fighting the left, not liberals. Liberalism believed in American exceptionalism; the left not only does not believe in it, the left opposes it.,, [snip]

3. Democrats should be referred to as Social Democrats. This is not meant to be a slur, but there is no longer any difference between what is now known as the Democratic Party and the Social Democratic parties of Europe... [snip]

4. 6. Do not let other matters distract. Neither Republicans nor conservatives are united on every issue facing America. Immigration is one example. But we are united on the big government vs. free individual issue, which, more than anything else, has defined America. If we allow any other domestic issue to divide us, we will lose... [snip]

5. Our motto: "The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen." It encapsulates this epic battle of American values versus leftist values.

6. Acknowledge that we are in a non-violent civil war. The fact is that the left and the rest of the country share almost no values. The American value system and the leftist value system are irreconcilable. If the left wins, America's values lose. If American values prevail, the left loses.

After Sunday's vote, for the first time in American history, one could no longer confidently believe that the American system will prevail.

And if we don't fight for it, we don't deserve it.


[The challenge:

Everyday Americans will need overcome their two greatest disadvantages is defending their values from the ceaseless onslaught of Progressivism:

1) The aversion of good people to imagine what bad people are capable of. and so slow recognition of evil being done {the enabler of tyrants throughout history}, and

2) The disinclination of conservatives toward 'activist' activities, as contrary to their self-reliant/libertarian/live-and-let-live values.

This combination of traits assures defeat over time, as it faces the opposite in liberal-progressivism:

> Belief in progressive values is self-evidence or superior intellect, and is accompanied with a moral obligation to direct the masses for their own good, and

> The altruism of this end justifies any-and-all means toward achieving - chief among them being stealth and deception, such as secured their virtually monopolies of key social institutions (academia, media, public employees).
{exaggeration? the nationalization of college tuition loans in a 'health care' bill?}

The point:

Everyday busy/self reliant/minding-their-own-business Americans need wake up to the reality that progressive-liberals, by their nature, fervently believe that our business is their business to manage and consider no means toward doing so beyond bounds.

Eternal counter-activism [action] is required or the individual liberty this country was founded on will be consumed by the never ending assault of collectivism.

I.e., it's our turn.
