True Colors

We think these tea party rallies are great -- we attended one in Provo, Utah. It occurs to us that in the sixties it was only the angry, bored, anti-establishment, hippie student-types who protested in the streets. Now, finally, the hard-working silent majority is speaking out, and in a big way. Hundreds of thousands of regular patriotic Americans are fed up with the glutted Fed. We want less government intrusion in our lives! Government taxation has become oppressive, and spending is out of control! Uphold the original intent of the Constitution! Represent the will of the people! Down with socialism! These are the cries of honest to goodness America. (If you haven't read it yet, get a hold of Mark Levin's new bestselling book, Liberty and Tyranny, for a review, or an education, of what America is all about. We underlined practically the whole book.)

But you didn't hear much at all about these unprecedented protests on the network news. People gathered themselves together and showed up in huge enthusiastic groups all over the country and reporters essentially ignored it. The incredible fact that the mainstream media did not give this event the coverage it deserved shows its true colors. The incredible fact that the media is calling average, hard-working Americans "racists" and "extremists" for exercising their First Amendment rights and demanding that government taxation and spending be limited shows who these news media people really are. They have been deceived into thinking America is evil at its very foundations and the rest of the world enlightened. They cast aside history, the accumulated wisdom and experience of mankind. They close their eyes to the realities of human nature. They get caught up in shallow social schemes and don't think things through. They thumb their noses at America's unique foundational principles. They forget God.

It makes you wonder how long the anti-America Americans can with impunity turn a blind eye to this grass-roots, red, white, and blue movement. More tea parties are planned for -- you guessed it -- the Fourth of July.

At SoL we regret that America has not significantly shown its own true colors in protesting against the sexual liberationist movement. It has allowed people to be silenced, fired, punished, and called "Nazi," "homophobe," "ignorant," "bigot," etc. for living and speaking up for their traditional, Biblical, conservative family values. Remember what happened in the wake of the passing of California's Prop. 8. If only we had been brave enough to stand against sexual irresponsibility and licentiousness as it boldly paraded itself in our city streets, before it crept into our public policies, laws, schools, entertainment, and businesses.

Could it be that our pocketbooks are more important to us than our children or our faith? Or is it that an oppressive government is just the last straw on a pile of grievances? Whatever the reason, the exciting tea party movement is a sign that it isn't too late for the people to rise up against any destructive direction our beloved country is headed.

I was very upset that I wasn't able to attend a tea party, because it would have been so amazing to see so many patriotic Americans standing up for their freedom! It is hilarious how easily the media chose not to cover the story, when combining all these people together, it added up to at least a million people... That is HUGE! When was the last time a million people across the whole country protested in the streets for a common cause? It was very inspiring. Hopefully it is waking people up before it is too late!

I like the blog format. Just a quick comment about the Miss America pageant. California's contestant was runner-up to winner Miss North Carolina. Probably the clincher on her losing was the question she was asked, and with integrity answered: her opinion on same-sex marriage. She said she didn't want to offend anyone, but the way she was raised and the way she felt was that marriage should be between a man and a woman! Three Cheers! More than likely cost her the crown, but she won a greater honor!
