A Time For Choosing Is Right Now.


John F Kennedy said in a speech April 27, 1961:

The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.

I believe that those words are important today. It sheds a light upon an issue that I believe is central to the destruction of our freedom as we’ve seen a great many things unfold in America that many others have historically warned citizens of happening right here in America if we did not regulate and manage our government properly.

The most recent example of presidents warning Americans about this danger is of course Donald J. Trump. His voice is not the most important one over the last 60 years that spoke directly to the people every chance he could. No, that man would be Ronald Reagan.

Reagan was far from a perfect president but he embodied the first real look at the conservative movement within the Republican party that stood to change American values for the better while attempting to preserve tradition. He might have been a man of God but he held no ill will towards the gay community. Many religious right wing Republicans as well as Democrats seized on this to attack minority groups in the country at the time. Both political parties have things they should be ashamed of because both had mainstream movements that were vile and hateful.

He cared about seeing America achieve a balanced budget. He highlighted problems with government spending, the size of government, the lack of efficiency of government, the wasteful nature of government, and how it was misused to enrich a political and elite class of people. He warned that good things seldom came from government that were good for the people. He told us that the private sector was always a better option that putting trust in government.

Regular American citizens stopped getting involved in government and started allowing for a select few to operate the business of the country. The stopped paying attention to the real dangers lurking in society. The myth that either party truly cares about the needs of the people has been sold on generations of Americans that had no clue that their freedoms, the stability of our country, our traditions, our values, were all being stolen quietly because regular people stopped getting involved in the day to day of our government from local all the way to federal government.

We now have a president that isn’t really the president as a result of corruption in every level of government and a media that was supposed to watch out for the people that got in bed with the elite political class and corporations that control so much of our society. Whether these people believe they are doing good things or not is irrelevant. The facts demonstrate that they are looking out for their own interests while telling the rest of us to fight one another all the time and on every possible platform.

So while Democrats are currently trying to sell the people on the idea of unity, they are stoking the flames of hate and using their militant groups to keep America unstable and funding social justice messages that have no basis in reality. While Republicans are trying to act like they care about the injustice and lawlessness that just transpired in the 2020 election, they too are seeking to regain control of the party they corrupted and stole away from the people.

The American people have a choice. Those who truly believe that our country is at risk must start removing establishment candidates in both parties from office through every legal means possible. Whether through recalls, elections, or even seeking criminal charges for those that have violated the law. It’s either do that or it’s a cry for civil war in this country which is exactly what our enemies want. An unstable America means that the light of freedom is dimming and evil can proceed to go on unchecked all over the world.

Part of the problem is that evil resides in the White House and in Congress right now. They will do all they can to attack the rights of Americans. Some cities, counties, and even states are attempting to thwart any directives from the federal government that violate the Constitutional rights of citizens. That’s a great start. But what really helps is when regular people start running for office and start demanding of their government a permanent restructure of how it operates such as term limits and fiscal responsibility.

I posted a tweet today to Scott Pressler asking him to run for office because we need LGBT voices like his to represent the very best of the gay community in government. He even liked that tweet which I was deeply honored to see that he had taken notice of and I also posted as part of the tweet that I wasn’t going to ask him to do something that I wasn’t willing to do myself. I made a decision to accept a position for a candidate for Mayor in Cuyahoga Falls. She asked me to be her liaison to the LGBT community. She’s running as a Republican but I assure you, she’s a Constitutional Conservative in her thinking. She’s a Christian. She’s a mom, a wife, a nurse, and she also happens to be related to me through my marriage. So she is family as well.

It would seem that people don’t take this seriously enough. We have to make a choice, right here and now. We have to be willing to step up and change our country for right and good and turn back the damage that decades of ignorance and mismanagement have done to our country. We have to take personal responsibility and start owning this mistake. It might have been the boomer generation that helped to create this and push America towards the brink but it was their parents that demonstrated courage in the face of evil and fought to preserve freedom in our country and to help spread that light and good to other countries all over the world.

My generation is equally to blame for the state of things. GenX folks were made to ignore the problems in government. They were the first generation to suffer the initial wave of indoctrination through the education system as it was federally imposed by Jimmy Carter on an unsuspecting nation. My husband’s generation even more so responsible for having no clue about history, freedom, the threat of communism and socialism. It’s time for all of us no matter our age, to wake up and stand up for what is right or risk losing it all.

So the time for choosing is now. Not tomorrow or a year from now. You have to make a choice or suffer the loss of freedom for generations of unborn Americans. You must decide if you are going to be the light and good that the world needs or if you will suffer under the boots of oppression and hate for the sake of just trying to live your life without being noticed. Do you want America to be like China? Russia? If not, choose freedom and fight now. Get out and run for office, get involved, vote, and more than ever spread truth so that the crimes we’re seeing unfold and go unpunished, are finally brought to justice.

God bless you all.

  • The more of your posts I read, the more I find myself saying “Yes! Finally, someone else out there who gets it!” Congratulations on your new position as well. I’ve no doubt you will execute it with all due diligence.
    One thing I would add that so many in office seem to lack these days (besides scruples) is a lack of eloquence. It is all good and well to have the right position, but the ability to express it in a pleasant and convincing way is important on an aesthetic level, and I don’t see any Ciceros or Churchills in either party right now. It would be nice to bring some people like that to the fore as well: effective statesmen who are also effective communicators.
