Hello fellow patriots.
I’ve been doing some reflecting this week. Its been four years since we got the Tea Party rolling in West Michigan. I am actually very encouraged about what is happening. Yes, I would prefer Obama lost and we gained seats in 2012. Yes, I would prefer that our state representatives would hold firm and not take the bribe money for adopting the Healthcare Exchange. Yes, I would prefer that our coup was successful at the convention and we not lost by a narrow margin. But there is much to be excited about.
We’ve learned so much during the 4 years in the Tea Party. Unfortunately, one of the things we’ve learned is that there are no quick answers. We’ve also learned that divine intervention was involved in our founding and will be required as much or more in our restoration. This perspective is necessary when short term “losses” happen.
I’ve enjoyed my time in the trenches with my fellow patriots. It’s amazing to recall the different experience we’ve had together. I ask that you consider doubling down. I ask that you think about the example you are setting for future generations. The establishment GOP / Ruling Class would love nothing more than to see us go away. I maintain that the long time Tea Partiers are actually growing stronger. We’ve moved the protest from the outside of the building to the inside. They don’t like that very much! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t desire to force anyone out of office. They can join us under the Liberty Tree, met with open arms. That said, the convention is a prime example of the Liberty Movement doing its job. Let’s multiply. Let’s bring new people into the fold as part of “Operation Trojan Elephant” or through educational events and or outreach.
Let’s be realistic about the challenges facing us. The GOP establishment while losing its footing has a major incentive to maintain power. Our success might actually make things worse. Perhaps they will try to get what they can while they still have power. (ex. Healthcare Exchange). Unfortunately, this type of activity will turn off their base. The general public Tea Partier / Conservative will not be interested in voting for the GOP in 2014. We need to be prepared to pick up the elephant carcass once the establishment is done running it into the ground. We are in a long term fight. I think many of us don’t want to admit that things have to get worse before it gets better, but that’s the way things look.
I am honored to fight for liberty during this time in our countries great history. I am proud of the example I am setting for my descendents. I am fulfilled when I see my fellow patriots learn and engage in this struggle. I am glad that God woke me up so I can accept a role in His battle. I am honored to take part in the great commission rather than live in an isolated bunker. As painful as it is, I would rather experience the pain of battle than to be apathetic and part of the problem.
We meet every Saturday morning to pray for repentance and restoration in our country. Contact me or check the events tab for more information.
Onward to 2013,
