The greatest tragedy of our time is the loss of personal responsibility by the American citizen. The rise of the Democratic party as we now know it is wrought by the corresponding deficiency of active conservative principles by our citizens. The Democratic party now has espoused the greatest big government agenda in the history of our great nation. They promise free money, free healthcare, free college tuition: who is going to pay for it? Where do we get the money? And more importantly, what do we do when that free money runs out? We will have become so dependant on the government that we will have shed all personal responsibility and will no longer know how to earn anything ourselves.
In fact, we are rapidly heading toward that state now. The Democratic party seems an inexorable juggernaut unable to be stopped by traditional Republican tactics. Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama champion the advent of government run healthcare (read: socialistic health-care) which would add untold trillions to the government debt which we are now entangled in. They support many billions of dollars toward the creation of new and far-ranging government programs for the poor and suffering. I am for the removal of poverty from the American scene, but never at the cost of throwing our security into the briny depths of foreign whims. How can we take care of our own citizens’ money issues while throwing the nation into debt and disarray?
As every conservative knows, big government is the trumping of state and local government and the crushing of the will and freedom of the people of which the government was borne to serve. When government begins to control your wallet, yea, even a part of it, it becomes like a wild animal with bloodlust, it cannot be satiated with just the minor taste, it must consume the entire entity. This means that if we allow our liberal government to control even the minutest fraction of our financial lives, it will eventually grow to be the detestable brute that the founding Fathers intended to prevent through the various checks and balances. We must now elect someone with the great principles that have driven conservatives since the Reagan Revolution: the principles of integrity, honesty, small government, noninterference except when absolutely necessary, freedom of the individual, freedom of the nation, personal accountability and other principles so advocated by conservatives that have long thwarted the liberal pick-pocketing by the scourge of big government.
You may ask why I speak of big government as an animal, or even a cumbersome and obstinate impediment to liberty. Well the common principles of man have long sustained the human race since the days of Noah and Moses to our current state. When God saw the wickedness of the people, he did not indiscriminately destroy Noah as well as the heathen sinners. No, he saw the righteousness of one and seven and spared them. As well as with the rebellion of Korah against the laws of God brought by Moses from the Mount Sinai, God destroyed Korah and his followers yet spared those that remained loyal to Him. Personal accountability made all the difference. The followers of God made a personal commitment to remain loyal and steadfast when others were blindly following one erroneous man. This can be said of liberalism, we follow blindly in the direction our brute big government leads us. With conservatism; however, personal responsibility is the driving force. Personal accountability in finances, freedom, choice and family. The government stays as much out of your life in a conservative government as it intrudes and obstructs in a liberal-run one.
Therefore choose for yourself of which you wish to be yoked under: a government that restricts or a government that uplifts? A government that controls or a government that knows it’s role? A government that determines what you can do and when or a government that allows for personal freedom in bounds of natural law? A government that promises big and falls short or a government that stays out and allows you to become all you can be? A government whose yoke is crushing in weight and destructive in nature or a government whose yoke is light and unrestrictive? A government who lives to control or a government who is controlled by those living under it? A government grown to the size of unsustainable range or a government who helps more than controls? These are the questions before us now in the great moment of elective process. The time in which we exercise our will. We still have the choice, do we have the will? We still have the power to shrink this sizeable behemoth to a manageable and freedom loving ordinance run by us and doing our will. Will we step up and say to the government through our ballots that we will no longer be controlled by them, instead they will become adherents to our will?
Now is not the time for apathy on the part of the great conservative spirit within every American. Now is the time to act, to set forth a new revolution: not one wrought by violence or death, not of communism nor Marxism nor liberalism. A peculiar revolution indeed it shall be, instead of ‘progressing’ to a new depth of personal unaccountability, we shall instead ‘progress backwards’ as it were, to the shining shores of liberty and the sunny plains of personal freedom. We can truly progress, but we shall progress genuinely, for once, toward a right and just goal of freedom and responsibility and the removing of the yoke of government that has become a prevalent factor in the ongoing demise of the liberty we have had for two hundred and thirty two years. We shall indeed break the bondage imposed by government and replace it with a righteous government of old, one of noninterference save the case of war, violence or fraud.
