*MODERATION WILL NOT SAVE OUR REPUBLIC*

19 Aug

A modern day patriot friend of mine once said “Moderation will not save our Republic” I am in agreement with him. What we need are people willing to take a stand for what is right and not give lame excuses for being lukewarm people with no principles. I am sick to death of men and women who get blown here and there depending on what is “politically correct”, they are what is wrong with this country.
What we need are men and women who have TITANIUM spines. Willing to withstand the assault they must endure when they take a stand. My prayer is that more of these “TITANIUM SPINES” would be raised up and sent out to places of leadership and influence. We must train up and educate the next generation of “TITANIUM SPINED” statesmen and women. These men and women are human like all of us what sets them apart is they aren’t in this for their own political ambition or glory and they do not care about being reelected. Their one main concern is returning this BEAUTIFUL REPUBLIC back to the Founding Father’s original intent. I pray that you and I would be these men and women of TITANIUM SPINES, that we would be willing to do what it takes and count the cost for our future generations.

FOR GOD AND COUNTRY

    To those conservative hold outs in supporting Romney. According to Gallop and multiple studies OVER 1/3 of Americans consider themselves to be moderates. In the Reagan tradition we would well to appeal to them. Not fully understanding the impact people like Rush Limbaugh and others regularly criticize moderates and even tell them to leave the Republican party. Brooks does a good job here explaining the virtues of moderation. Republicans in this republic need to heed better the “Big Tent” principle of Ronald Reagan. Note that moderation is not just finding the midpoint between two opposing poles and opportunistically planting yourself there. And being a moderate does not mean compromising core principles to get along for political expediency. Only people who know nothing about moderation think it means that. Few, if anyone, agree 100% of the time on issues. If you base a party on political purity, rigid TITANIUM spines and 100% agreement – you destine that party to smallness and eventual oblivion. Reagan had it right when he said somebody who agrees with you 80% of the time is an 80% friend – not a 20% enemy. Reagan was a pragmatist not an absolutist; his skill in giving a little to gain a lot politically and advance conservatism both boldly and incrementally was one of his many most notable qualities. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/26/opinion/brooks-what-moderation-means.html?_r=0
