The time has come for those who believe in capitalism and the American way of life to stand up and be counted. Laws upon laws are being passed without the consent of the people by elitist government officials almost completely detached from the local citizenry. Radical social extremist are intimidating Corporate America to such an extent that even the Salvation Army is not welcome at many locations across the land.

Recently criticism of President Obama exposing his obvious racist agenda and attitudes has landed Glenn Beck in trouble with advertisers who do not want to advertise during his time on the air. Now, I have no trouble with corporations supporting who they will, but I do have trouble supporting those corporations when they deny support to those who espouse the same views about America I do, while lending their support to the radical extremist who seem bent of destroying the America I love.

Colorofchange.org is a radical political action group seeking to influence advertisers to boycott Beck’s show. The co-founder of Color of Change, Van Jones, now serves as a special advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. Now it starts to make sense. Beck recently exposed Van Jones’ as being a self-professed “Black Nationalist.” “Black Nationalists” desire to make black culture the dominant culture of America. He is a radical extremist who has no business in government, but he is typical of those with whom President Obama is surrounding himself.

Walmart, CVS Caremark, Clorox, and Sprint are among those companies who are reported to be boycotting Beck’s program. The time has come for those who care to do more than attend a “Tea Party.” We need to contact those who are boycotting Beck and respectfully express our extreme displeasure with them in ways they will understand. We need to hit them in the pocketbook.

To be effective, in such an endeavor requires commitment. We Americans have trouble with commitment which costs us a part of our leisure time. We simply cannot miss the golf outing, the hunting expedition, or the sporting event in order to involve ourselves in the perpetuation of our culture. THAT MUST CHANGE. The Founding Fathers of our great nation risked everything they had to give us a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. IT IS TIME to set aside our perpetual pursuit of pleasure in order that we might leave that same heritage for those generations which come after us.

What can we do? We can begin by personally contacting the offending corporate entities and expressing our displeasure in their actions by email, written letter, and telephone. All three entities might take a while, but consider exactly what your failure might result in. Then we can contact the local outlet personally and let the manager know of our displeasure. Next, we can refuse to patronize those entities, and use their products. Yes, it will be inconvenient, but not nearly as inconvenient as it will be when we have lost our ever shrinking freedoms. Finally, we can offer ourselves for service by running for office.

Arise from those feathery beds of comfort, it is past noon, even moving toward the evening and still the work is not done. Who knows but that the night might come upon us more quickly that we imagine when the opportunity to work is no long present. Christian Patriots everywhere need be about the work of preserving this great country which God has allowed us to enjoy, so that we might continue to utilize our great resources to take the Good News throughout the world.

Is This President Acting Deliberately or Ignorantly?

Paul Driessen reports on townhall.com that the Denver Art Museum spent $720,000 for taxpayer subsidized photovoltaic solar panels for its roof. He further reports that while the panels will certainly reduce conventional electricity bills that it will take 110 years to save enough on those bills to pay for the panels. The problem is the panels are designed to last only 30 years.

So what is the point? Exactly this. President Obama gets to promote solar power, with the majestic Rockies in the background of his photo op.

I'm not opposed to solar energy. It just isn't cost effective as long as we have such an abundance of petroleum resources available, albeit, under lock and key.

The time has come for the American populace to rise up in mass and tell our representatives, this is a representative democracy after all, that we want the doors to our petroleum reserves unlocked. We need to drill and drill often. We need to tell those states, California, Oregon, and Florida which don't want drilling that they can like it or lump it. Their jurisdiction reaches only seven miles.

We need to open the vast reserves in Alaska and we need it now. Ecological concerns have long since been adequately addressed along the tundra. The only justifiable reason for continuing the moratorium on domestic drilling is to quiet the shrill, non-sensical voices of the lunatic left which is led by very belligerent radical activists. Let them yell--let them scream, but drill, drill, drill!

President Obama has agreed, it seems, to help Brazil develop their vast offshore oil reserves. If oil is morally wrong, what is wrong with this picture? Recent reports have China, the most populous nation in the world, investing heavily in oil development with their oil rich trading partners with never a word of rebuke from this administration. If oil is so morally wrong, why not slap China with trade restrictions.

It seems to this writer, that oil is only morally wrong if drilled in the United States. Thereby giving a picture of an administration deliberately, or worse ignorantly, guiding us inexorably toward total economic destruction.

The recent "Cash For Clunkers" program certainly generated sales of new cars, but it removed thousands of good used cars from the lots where those who cannot afford a new vehicle at this time have fewer and fewer choices. The used car salesmen, have an immensely depleted inventory. The mechanics who maintain these vehicles have less work, and the taxpayer is hit with a $3 billion dollar bill. Is it deliberate or ignorance?

The anecdotal evidence that this administration is following a path which could lead to the ultimate destruction of our entire economy is enormous. The question we must ask: Is it a deliberately chosen path where they are fully cognizant of the potential, or is it simply ignorance based upon the belief structure they have developed from their association with the radical leftist fringe of society. Which ever is the case, we must pray for Divine intervention, and mobilize the masses lest we be swept into irrelevance in much the same manner as other historical dominant cultures.
