Over the years I have noticed that anytime a person of liberal thinking dislikes a policy of the government they get up, create liberate sign, dress in eye catching clothes, grabs a handful of friends and family, then head to the street corner to protest. But when do you see conservatives do that? No, instead they tend to only write emails and letters to the editor or to the representatives. They tend to be more worried about others finding out about their views and ending up on the street corner looking for a job instead.
It seems that in today’s world, most conservatives are more worried about what others view them as than how to speak up and be noticed. Where is the sacrifice that created this country that the patriots of the founding had? Many of those patriots lost their entire life savings, homes, and even family members, and not just because of being killed but because of loyalties to the cause. Like Benjamin Franklin, when the war started he never spoke to his son again because his son was a loyalist and fought for the British.
So what is my point here? It is simple. If we conservatives want to bring this country back to the greatness that it once was, then we need to be willing to sacrifice out time, money, and possibly even family ties as the founding fathers did over 236 years ago.
One other thing, those conservatives that are religious need not be afraid of praying for this country during those protest. Lets start asking God to bless this country as he had in the past. Ask him for the help to bring it back to the values, morals and Christian beliefs it was once founded on and our leaders prayed for on April 30, 1789 when our first President lead the entire Congress and Senate in prayer at a little stone church in New York.

To clarify, yes I know many conservatives do make sacrifices, but not most. According to reports and surveys I have seen, most Americans are conservatives and feel their rights are being taken away but do nothing to bring change.

I was on my way to work when the planes hit. I heard the radio news break that the first plane hit. Entered a dead zone for the radio and when the radio came back on the DJ sounded very quite and in disbelief. Then he said that a second plane had hit the second tower during the time I was in the dead zone… My first thought was, “WTH! is going on!” and my second was, “This can’t be an accident… I think we are being attacked…” At that moment I was thinking about turning around and going straight home. But I completed my way to work. Once there, the base (Edwards AFB) went into DefCon Delta and locked down the doors. No one in or out of any building. We were told that at one point that due to the heavy traffic of getting planes out of the air that some commercial plane may have to land on the base. The next 8 hours were torture. No work was really done because everyone was glued to the TV’s or webcast reports. My ex asked me if she should keep the kids home or send them to school, I said they didn’t need to see this and unless the schools closed it would be better to send them…
Thank you teachers for working that day, I can only imagine how hard it was to know what was going on and still keeping the kids…
When the base allowed us to leave, we weren’t sure if we would be allowed back to work the next day or what to expect as we left. Driving by the runways we saw 4 F-15′s at each end ready to launch.
Will I forget that day? Nope, that day is forever engraved into my memory… All those lost lives, the families’ that lost loved ones, those that fought back, and those that were just questioning why they lived when their friends and family members died… No, that horrible day will stay with me until I no longer breath…
Thank you my Brothers and Sisters in the Armed Forces for taking up the call. God Bless America…
