ATTENTION! Evangelical Christians; U.S. Chamber of Commerce small business job creators; NRA folk; CATO Institute, Institute for Justice, Federalist Society, and Club for Growth Members; Harley folk on the shop floor in York and Milwaukee and on the roadways of America; and last, but far from least, the entire Tea Party movement:
Beyond the euphoria of all the seats gained in the House in the last election lies a massive and frightening roadblock. When your fellow Americans vote back into office John McCain, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and—good gawd—Barney Frank (I pray I’m dreaming), you have to recognize the sour fact that you won a decisive battle but sure as heck have not won the war.
Should Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy call it a day, President Obama would get another shot at the Supreme Court, but this time we’re talking the swing vote. The last two Obama nominations are anti-Second Amendment, Marxist-influenced judges who are against liberty and freedom. Just one more foul ball in this little socialistic club and you can kiss the Second Amendment goodbye.
In such a setting, conservative Americans will unfortunately be on the search for a new John Galt. Ayn Rand will have been proven prophetic. I am afraid this is the long and the short of it. We are one hairline nomination away. Sound hunky-dory to you? It sure doesn’t to me. So we all must ramp up the effort, expand the team, and develop a battle plan. I have laid out “The Road Ahead” in the grid below. This is how I see the playing field setting up for 2012. As you can see, it will be a tough battle. My guess is that most of you would find yourselves theoretically in either the National Freedom Party or the Christian Conservative Party. As you’ll note, I have omitted Republican and Democrat designations because they are no longer suitable; they group together folks with dissimilar goals.
By gauging the political landscape with my New Era political grid, you’ll easily gain focus and begin to develop a cohesive strategy for 2012. I am deeply worried. America cannot stand a repeat of the neo-con-dominated Bush years or the Marxist-influenced Obama years. It is really that simple. What’s your move?
The National Freedom Party – The NFP supports no government intervention in society, business, or foreign sovereign states. The NFP wants to shrink the national government as much as possible and supports a strict interpretation of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution. Most important to the NFP is a free market, with as few restrictions as possible. The NFP represents many small businesspeople, skilled artisans, and libertarians.
