To be silent or go down trying

As Californiastan goes, so goes the nation.

Truth is often unpleasant, ugly and forces us to rethink ourselves. But to flee Truth makes us cowards. The thing to consider is; are we willing to allow ourselves to be buried alive? Or are we willing to stand and say, "Enough!"?
I have taken that stand by homeschooling and contacting politicians and speaking out, I may be a small voice in the world, but if enough join together, maybe, just maybe someone will hear us.

It has unfortunately, been my experience that too many conservatives and Christians have fallen silent, why? Is it intimidation? Is it a persist belief that it can't happen here? Or to me or mine? Is it because the leftistas are foul-mouthed, vile-minded, perverse, profane, slanderous, and loud?

War is never fun, it is not "nice" and it is messy, bloody and scary. But why are we conceding rather than rolling up our sleeves and getting the job done?

To quote Monteith's toast, "He either fears his fate too much, or his desserts are small, who will not put it to the touch, to win or lose it all."
If you refuse to put it to the touch, YOU LOSE ANYWAY! Why not try? At least you can look yourself in the mirror without shame! And you can't win if you won't try!

Interesting update; Check out Donal's site for an interesting editorial on streetfighting and jihadis here in the US!

conservatives are just too stinkin' nice! we're diplomatic while the few are brazenly whipping us with their agenda.

TMW, well said!!

On this same line we just had a major debate held at the University of Utah between Sean Hannity and the Salt Lake City Leftist Mayor. It was good to have the conservative voice speaking out against Rocky Anderson. Anderson spends WAY too much time being a dhimmy leftist activist than in being the mayor. Salt Lake City should ask for his resignation since he isn't doing his job.

Thanks, ladies! I guess I'm just getting sick and tired of whimpy behavior!
Too much fear; people won't like me, they'll think I'm mean, blah dee blah dee blah...let's face it, they hate and despise us anyway, so let's go out with our self-respect intact anyway!
I'm also sick and tired of people sticking their heads in the sand! At my old church, the deacons and their wives all were saying, "Oh, Jesus will bless us, it will get better, just wait and see!" At which point I wanted to puke on their shoes!!!!!!!!!
I'm sick of the nausea!

We are nice, this is true. We also make the cardinal mistake in treating the whole world as if it were our friend, when it is not. I am convinced that until we as Christians, as conservatives, as libertarians, as free men and women, that until we stop filling our minds with popular culture, we will never be able to truly oppose it. We will be corralled by its strictures and its infinite list of "do not touch, do not taste, do not handle".

The Merry Widow said...

RS- That is part and parcel with what G*D has been impressing me with for about a year and a half now. Pare down, discard, loosen, throw, toss, sift...chose!
I am divorcing myself from the tyranny of the urgent and preparing for battle. Preparing to win the race that has entered the straight away.
This world IS NOT our Home, and it is our enemy! The more that can be saved from it, the better. But I can't tell them how to be saved out of the world, until they know what they need to be saved from!

Do notice how silent the other lefties are now that I am torching Che. They are never put on defense.

I am glad that everyone picked up on that arrogant comment by Ducky about Cubans.

Gayle said...

Excellent, Nanc! I'm sick and tired of it too. The libs yell, whine, scream, bitch, lie, manipulate, and otherwise make so much noise they get most of the media attention.

Remember that rally in DC? The libs got 99% of the coverage! It's because they notified the media well in advance of the rally and because they are well organized. We conservatives sit back and wait for things to change and while we do that things only get worse. We need another rally - a conservative rally that is as well organized and pre-planned and LOUD as the libs. We should flood D.C. with our protest against the idiocy happening in this country. I would somehow find a way to go to that one!

nanc said...

gayle - i'd love to take credit for this post, but it belongs to tmw - who, btw - is going to be much older than me tomorrow!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TMW - (what nancpop said...happy birthday to you - happy birthday to you - you're no longer fifty-two!)!

The Merry Widow said...

Just wait until July, "baby sis"! You may get that stuffed alligator yet...just saying is all...
Good morning, G*D bless(even Nanc, she needs it) and Maranatha!

Thank you, Gayle. I was in a bit of a state when I wrote it, mostly frustration!

This is how the Lefties plan on stopping the war (from the NY Times)...(and how they approach ALL issues)

“The central strategy is creating that toxic environment for people who want to continue this debacle.”

Be prepared to be harassed simply for voicing a contrary opinion. The simply want to tear you down, and not build you up.

Trends in CA--education and otherwise--tend to make their way to the East in about 5 years.

Christians aren't cowards, but there ARE susceptible to peer pressure from the more worldly types.

Excellent post!

Always On Watch said...

Also, Christians fear to be labeled "narrow thinkers." But what does the Bible teach about the narrow way?

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

We can do more damage with our guns than they can do with their mouths.

Go ahead, make some more noise, libbie.

nanc said...

you nailed it, aow!

it is far better to be narrowminded on the side of truth than broadminded on the side of a lie.

and we ARE just as susceptible, yes - it is a battle everyday to keep the mind focused on the prize when there're so many baubles obstructing our view.

PhoenixFire said...

Tmw- it doesnt matter how big your voice is, its how well it projects.
I agree with beamish there words are blunt arrows meant to slow us down, bullets on the other hand....
I'm proud to say i am NOT a coward i just dont say much is all, on my blog anyway. :)

The Merry Widow said...

PF-I guess you're talking to me! LOL! You are right, I've been singing in choir longer than you have been alive! I learned to project!
Blunt arrows and traps to tangle our feet, we need to change the ground and the rules!

And no, you aren't a coward, ditzy sometimes YES! Coward? No!

nanc said...

i've heard p.f. was born talking...hmmmmmmm...

The Merry Widow said...

I have a picture of when he was born, his mouth was open...but it was the ADHD when I was carrying him that was..."disturbing".
My liver hasn't recovered.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!


WomanHonorThyself said...

TMW..NOT to dhimmi...thats for sure!..nice read!

The Merry Widow said...

Thanks,Angel! I'm not good "dhimmi" material, they will have to kill me to shut me up!
To do otherwise is to disrespect the G*D WHO Loved and Saved me from my own fear!
Living in fear is to deny your humanity and the spirit G*D gave us, there are things worth standing up for, fighting for, and dying for!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

"Is it because the leftistas are foul-mouthed, vile-minded, perverse, profane, slanderous, and loud?"

Not entirely. We are also wealthy, well educated and very intelligent.

nanc said...

...and none too full of themselves, to boot.

and through all of solomon's days, what did he learn after having it all?

vanities, all is vanity.

Perhaps, if you consider a parasitic existence an indicator of wealth. Fat as leaches you live off the life blood of the prolitariot without contributing any "wealth" of your own manufacture. Your "art" self referential and delusional snapshots of neurotic fantasy.

If education is a process of consensus among the cognitive dissonate and the moronic posers that you accept as your great "leaders".

As for intelligent, tis to laugh!

I don't call you Nostradumbass for nothing!

Brooke said...

Wow, Ducky... Just when I think you can't get any more arrogant...

TR said we should speak softly and carry a big stick.

Christians certainly have the speaking softly part down-pat, but we have misplaced our stick!

I dont think we`re mad enough yet.
