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.
