Have You Given Up

June 22, 2013


ArmChairManRecently I had the pleasure of reading a friend’s comments about how disheartened he was about the political party situation in America. He was very upset about how the Democrats have been driving right over the Republicans. He talked about how much it was a waste of time to vote in the national elections, especially in the presidential elections.

He saw no hope in turning the Republican Party around. He even considers the party too corrupt to salvage. He based his conclusion on the premise that since the party is hopeless then the elections are hopeless. He stated that his future national election methodology would be to stay home. He was going to boycott future national elections because voting made no difference in the outcome. Even if the Republican Party is beyond salvage, I don’t believe America is.

The only problem with his tactic is that he is giving up and he is actually giving aid to the Democrats. His respective would make Democrats very, very happy because that is part of their master plan. They are in an attack mode called “divide and conquer”. They know if they can get enough Conservatives to stay home on Election Day then they win without even trying. They would win by forfeiture.

As a conservative, I agree that we have a long tall hill to climb but we will never get to the top of the hill if we all stay home. We have to fight even if it is up hill. To stay home and give up without a fight because it is “too hard” is the lazy and cowardly thing to do. No hero ever said such things and they never will.

America was not created by such ideas and it wouldn’t be here today if that was the prevailing mindset in 1776. Don’t you think that many of the American patriots in 1776 thought the exact same thing? Fortunately there were enough patriots who did not think that way. Thank you God that not all of them stayed home!

In 1776 America was worth the fight and it is still worth fighting for today. If America falls so does the world. It is the last stand for liberty, justice and unalienable rights. We must fight for her because she can no longer fight for herself.  The present leadership in Washington keeps her hands tied. No matter what else we do we have to fight Washington on this corruption, any way we can.


Fighting not only means not running from a fight but it also means indulging in every fight with vigor, even if it is hopeless.  Don’t you think that the 1776 patriots felt hopeless in their battles? Don’t you think that the soldiers at Valley Forge felt like going and staying home? Don’t you think that many of the soldiers in Washington’s Army were thinking they should have stayed home, while they were standing out on the battle field as the bullets whizzing by their heads? Thank you God, that many of them did not stay home.

Sure it is disheartening to see our elections become corrupted and manipulated but that doesn’t mean we should give up. Sure it is an almost impossible task we have in front of us but we will never get it done while sitting in our arm chairs at home.

You have to ask yourself is America worth the fight or not. If you think it is worth it, then you have to get out of that arm chair and hit the pavement swinging. If however you see nothing in America worthy of your time then by all means, get comfortable in your arm chair, sit back and relax. But you better get ready for the next step because what comes next will not be pretty and it will only come because of people like you.

The saying “All it takes for evil to triumph is for enough good men to do nothing” is one of the absolute truths in the world. It is one of the most important aspects of an evil agenda. That is why evil fights so hard to dishearten so many people. When you give in to it that is when evil wins.

Is America worth fighting for? Are you willing to fight? Are you willing to vote and vote in every election regardless of how hopeless it may seem? If so then take my hand because I want to shake the hand of a true patriot.
