Justifying Conservatism – Are You a Messenger or a Hindrance?

conservatism

by: Tanya Grimsley

Recently throughout my travels in the social networks I have discovered even more discord now then I did before the selection of Mitt Romney as the GOP candidate for 2012. I find myself wondering why some days and can come to only a few conclusions which are strictly my personal views or things that I have actually seen transpire among conversations that I witnessed.

In the world of social networking there are a few things that I have noticed more than others. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, on their own profiles.  To the numerous friends throughout whichever network you are on determines when it becomes another’s right to interject their thoughts and opinion. Herein lies a problem. In a group setting, a group is normally set up with a main topic as the core for the group. I will use for example “Allen West Republic” on Facebook. With its many members and diverse opinions, the structure which is based on the Allen West brand of conservatism can be many things to many people. Albeit the creators intentions were to keep things soundly about the message of Allen West and the things that he talks about. That is not always the case within this, or any group.

Everyone brings something different to the table when you are socializing. There are the strong-willed people, who believe only what they believe. There is no changing their minds. There are the middle ground folks who interact with everything and everyone to get the best circulating opinions. Then they take it to their friend’s and other groups or social networks. Then there is the meek minded, they tend to watch and never comment. They are generally clicking like on everything just to appease everyone because they are not quite sure where they themselves stand. In the end they are looking for the strongest, wisest answer to appear out of the conversation.

There are bloggers who have interests that are different from those who do not blog. Then there are those that aggregate articles from all over the internet. They take and post what is foremost on their minds. The ones that I love are the ones with a strong solid message. They stick to it, everyday, it is their niche’ it is what they do. They know it like the back of their own hand. They can answer any question or have anything you need available at almost a moments notice.

Willingness to help seems to be of short hand lately.  Since the GOP lost the election (no matter who or what the reason was – we lost) the divisiveness among people  is sad.  How do we ever expect to unite under a given umbrella at any point in time if we do nothing? How does passing the message of our own personal opinions and not taking criticism or listening to others views helpful? Why does everything become a battle among who is right and who is wrong? The message of unity is not sound, we do not reach out to one another, we are being selfish, stuck up snobs and its just getting worse.

How do we change it? Better yet………. will you take the time and change it? Do you see yourself as one who needs to change?

1. Conservatism – Conservatives

2. 100% Tea Party – Conservatives

3. GOP – Conservatives (not everyone who claims Republican/GOP is a RINO)

4. Libertarian – Conservatives (yes, I have numerous friends who are)

Look deep my friends. We are not uniting, we are not learning from this past election. If we throw in the towel, whether you are saying it was a million different things, there is no changing them.  We have and are certainly accepting defeat for ourselves and the next generations to follow. I ask you to look at your conversations. Especially those lately. How many times have you “given up” or said “he who counts the votes controls the outcome” or this one “my candidate should have been the GOP nominee and we wouldn’t have lost”. There are many more things I could list here.  I will refrain for now.

The conservative umbrella is HUGE. The effects that are rolling downhill have picked up a strong and steady pace. We are not only in jeopardy of losing again in 2016,  we also will greatly affect the many generations who come after us. I am not saying that standing by your personal opinions is wrong. What I am saying is unless we get to the roots of our problems as a whole. Address how to take this conservative banner forward as one, then we will lose our Republic.  We are hanging on a thread right now. The tyranny we see before us daily should have us in masses reaching out to those we  don’t see talking about things but are all over the social networks. We should be educating the young ones while there is still the opportunity.

I am a Bible believing, God-fearing, conservative. Daughter, Sister, Mother, Wife, Grandmother, and friend. There is nothing too big for God to fix. There is nothing that we are going through at this stage in our country that we can’t get ourselves out of with His help. Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”  No matter the circumstances surrounding us now, or how outnumbered, how defeated, how depressed you may feel. The only way we can get through this together is to unite the entire conservative umbrella.

That starts with pointing the fingers at ourselves and saying……… am I just a blogger dumping my messages everywhere and never taking the time to go back and interact in a non confrontational manner?

Am I just a confrontation starter, you don’t see it my way so I will pound you verbally until you go away?

Or am I just the fence straddler, afraid to say how I feel? Do I let the other people affect how I will come to a conclusion on a given subject?

The point being, we must all take time to see the bigger picture. He or she may be “smarter” in certain things than I am.  Should that ever prevent someone from asking a question? The fear of being made a fool of  is a solid fear, whether by the person who posted or those participating in a  comment thread.  How do we expect to get our message to the young people before the next voting cycle when we can’t even treat each other as sources of knowledge instead of always being combative?

As always, looking for your comments. Your ideas. Thoughts and opinions. Trying to justify a behavior for the past conversations is not what this is about. It is where do we as a collective go from here. Also, why these other situations and behaviors must end.

I know there will be many people reading who won’t stop and see they are at fault, or even consider themselves in any way a part of the divisiveness. This will continue to tear the cause of conservatism apart. We have less than four years to get this right. Focus people, its the only chance we have. It starts with ourselves

Allen West: Negotiating with ‘Marxist’ President is ‘Silly’

by: dentonexable

(via The Blaze) Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) on Thursday called it “silly” for Republicans to negotiate with “Marxist, socialist, rigid ideologue” President Barack Obama.

Speaking on Mark Levin’s radio program, West said the GOP needs to stop its “circular firing squad” and focus on “unity based upon principles.”

“This whole thing about having having negotiations with President Obama is silly,” West said. “President Obama is Marxist, socialist, rigid ideologue and for whatever reason, he believes he has some self-conceived mandate to go out and further destroy and ruin our economy.”

House Republicans and the White House have been deadlocked over how to deal with the looming “fiscal cliff,” which will trigger automatic tax hikes and sharp spending cuts unless both sides can reach a budget agreement before the end of the year.

West, a Tea Party firebrand who lost his re-election bid last month, said that instead of wasting time negotiating with Obama, it’s up to House members to go out and “pass good policy,” then turn to the media and say, “ we’ve done our job now what are you going to do.”

Congressman Allen West On His Future

6711696111_60039e7310

By CHARLES MAHTESIAN | 12/1/12

Florida Rep. and Tea Party favorite Allen West, who recently lost re-election to Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy, appeared on National Public Radio Friday.  Far from despondent, West spoke of Washington politics and his future role with his characteristic assertive, yet calm, tone.

Politico relates the interview’s significant conclusion:

MARTIN: So what’s next for you?

WEST: Look, you know, God closes a door so that he can open up greater doors. I will continue to, you know, stand up and fight for this country. That’s my goal. I have two daughters, 19 and 16, and I want to make sure that they grow up in a great America that provides them all the opportunities that it provided to their mother and father.

MARTIN: Congressman Allen West is completing his term in Congress. He was kind enough to join us from a House recording studio on Capitol Hill here in Washington, D.C.

WEST: And always remember, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.

MARTIN: Duly noted. Congressman West, thank you so much for speaking with us.

Many commenters are interpreting West’s closing remarks as a hint that he may consider running for president some day.  Perhaps, though, he only meant to say that one can still be a pivotal figure, even if they only serve one term in Congress.

Time will tell.

The Myth of Liberal Tolerance: Will This Make the Nightly News? I Doubt It

The Myth of Liberal Tolerance

If there’s one thing liberals pride themselves on it’s the myth that they’re “tolerant” of others. But what liberals mean by the word is not what the word means, nor is it what they practice.

The word “tolerate” means to put up with, to allow to exist. But liberals don’t mean it that way. They don’t preach tolerance, they preach conformity. Look up what these bastions of tolerance have said about the Tea Party. Look what they say about Allen West. Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Clarence Thomas or anyone who dare creep outside the left-wing’s assigned box for them.

See, many liberals are, in reality, are the most intolerant human beings you’ll ever come across. They preach a “live and let live” philosophy, but relentlessly attack anyone with whom they disagree.

They can also be the most bigoted people you’ll ever meet. By bigoted I mean racist.

The most famous examples of this have been directed at Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. In 1994, political commentator Julianne Malveaux said on PBS that she wished Justice Thomas’ wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease,” continuing, “Well, that’s how I feel. He is an absolutely reprehensible person.” And in 1996, Emerge magazine ran a cover drawing of Justice Thomas dressed as a lawn jockey with the headline “Uncle Thomas: Lawn Jockey for The Far Right.

What was the unforgivable sin Justice Thomas committed to warrant such a disgusting attacks? He thought differently than the accepted liberal orthodoxy. That orthodoxy is where the true bigotry lies in liberalism.

At its worst, liberalism sees skin color, gender or sexual orientation and assigns a belief system, their belief system, on those people.

“Principles, pragmatism, passion and leadership” the many qualities of Rep Allen West

by Tanya Grimsley

In a recent interview I read about Congressman Allen West he said four words. Principles, pragmatism, passion and leadership. He does not back down nor will he let his guard down.  A husband, father and Congressman with morals, principles and a heart as big as the state of Texas. His love for this country runs deep, he served consecutively 22 years to defend her and it’s citizens against all enemies as he wore the uniform in the United States Army.  He chooses his words for good reason and does not “walk them back”  even though time and time again he is asked by the media. “Absolutely Not!”  is the answer and he states very pragmatically and with passion why he will not. Why should he?  He is right!

Currently Congressman West faces a tough run for election in a newly redrawn district. It is pretty evenly split down party lines. But, here is where things get ugly. West, has a nation of grassroots support and gets most of his funds from the average Joe. There are no huge SuperPACs, just common people like you and I.  The Democrats are pulling out all the stops where this “meager” district race is concerned.  A swell of huge Soro’s funded and liberal PACs are standing in line to play fast and furious with an Army Veteran’s reputation, his family life and more. They will not be satisfied with simple paid protesters and TV Ads spreading the initial seeds of doubt into a future constituents head, not a chance! They are out to “Take Down Allen West” “Dump West” they want him out of the political scene for good.  West is not just a mere threat, he is a promise! A promise to stand by this country he loves, to defend the oath he gave many years ago, to run through the fires of hell and back again to ensure her citizens have economic freedoms, choices and a safe haven to lay their children and their grandchildren’s heads each night.  He is just one man, he is not running for the highest office in the nation, so why all the fuss?

West is more than just a meager Congressman running for election. He is a force to be reckoned with, a driving force that ignites both the Republican and Tea Party base. Able to speak without a teleprompter, notes or a predetermined answer and has an astounding knowledge of the US Military, Foreign Affairs and History. The intellect he brings to the table is unmatched by most, especially those who like to take his words and spin them for their latest “headline grabbing title” for readership.  The rhetoric they claim to hate from the right does not compare to some of the most vile personal attacks heaped upon him and his family daily.

You see, he never had to run for Congress, he chose to!  Allen West had a desire to continue to serve his country in a capacity that only few in our Congress understand. Honor, values, faith, love of God and Country and above all, a voice for “We the People”.  Ask yourself these questions, why are they trying to silence him?  Why would Soro’s and son go out of their way to do this? And most importantly What will you do today to make a difference? Will you remain silent?

“If you can’t stand up for him and the values, principles and leadership we all claim to want back in this nation, who will you stand up for?”

I stand at the ready, steadfast and loyal with Congressman Allen West and his family.
