Take Back America
In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinborough said this about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior.
"A democracy is always temporary in nature; they simply have not existed as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship."
The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
In 1961, Ronald Reagan warned us that “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected and handed to our children for them to do the same or one day we will spend our sunset years telling them and our grandchildren what it was once like in the United States where the citizens were free.”
At first the “Tea Party” was a protest movement because we had to get their attention. Then we morphed into a massive “Get Out and Vote” machine because we had to hold them accountable. Now, We Must Govern. “We” that is as in “We the People.”
2009 - Tea Party 1.0, the first iteration of this grassroots uprising for fiscal sanity, was as a street protest. Each of us literally got up off of the couch and started to gather in the town square. Lo and behold, we all discovered that we were not alone in our anger against an arrogant political establishment run amuck.
2010 - Tea Party 2.0 evolved into a powerful “Get Out and Vote” machine. It worked, producing a historic shift in political power in both state capitols and in Washington, D.C.
2011 - Tea Party 3.0 must now take its power established as a protest movement and a “Get Out and
Vote” machine and apply it to the difficult task of legislating change. How do we repeal and replace ObamaCare? How do we cut spending, reform entitlements and balance the budget? How do we reign in the power of politicians, government employees, corporate rent-seekers and an army of special interests that have enriched themselves at taxpayer expense? The right policies might be clear enough, but the legislative path from where we are today to where we need to be will require a continued evolution and increased sophistication in Tea Partier tactics. And that is exactly what is happening.
Question: Who will lead like Reagan?
The answer to this question, is not another Reagan. The answer is not even a politician or an elected official. The answer is you. As part of a leaderless movement of millions of grassroots Americans committed to reigning in Washington’s proliferate ways, you will lead because the future of our country is at stake. The futures of your children and grandchildren might well be determined by what you are willing to do this August.
