I remember when I first said this. I was nailing shingles on my roof while listening to the radio; talk radio. And I came to the realization that there was a concerted effort by, as David Horowitz describes, a "Shadow Party," to undermine, dismantle, and eventually destroy my country, The United States of America.
When the realization came that we were under attack, not from terrorists, or a foreign army rolling across America with tanks and infantry, not from bombs and missiles, but from traitorous treacherous Americans in business suites, in academia, the press, and Washington DC, I remember shouting from my rooftop, "I will not submit. I will not quit. I will never give in, and they will destroy America over my dead body; over MY DEAD BODY!"
When I said this, my sweet wife probably though I had been out in the sun too long, and it did seem a little silly; shouting from my rooftop. But I had resolved, in a most sincere and even sacred way, to commit my life in the defense of my country; not just for myself, but for my children and their children.
Of course, I had no idea how I would go about doing this. Who was I, just a small town nobody with no fame or wealth or connections? But I knew that even one with God is a majority, and though of myself I could do nothing, yet with God I could do all things. I also knew that this country was formed with God's divine guidance and by men and women that God had ordained for that purpose. And so with faith I looked to play my small part in the preservation of this country knowing that at the end of the day, we would be victorious, and that this nation, and our Constitution would be preserved.
Was I afraid, knowing the great power of the secret combinations who combined against this nation? No, I can honestly say that I am not nor will I ever be afraid. I have been to combat twice in the service of my country; once in Desert Shield / Desert Storm, and a second time in Iraq, and through that experience I have gained a testimony of God's protection.
So, I did what many have done lately. I have made phone calls to Congress. I have sent emails. I have been reading books like "The 5000 Year Leap" and "Liberty and Tyranny" and I have worked to expand my networks. On February the 19th when I first heard Rick Santelli on CNBC call for a "Chicago Tea Party" and I heard the traders cheer I thought, as did many Americans, "Yes, we need to have a Tea Party!"
So, I got online and found the nearest Tea Party Protest, and just one week later my wife and I drove to Houston on February 27th, at Houston's Discovery Green Park, where we joined the first Houston area Tea Party. Since that time I have attended other Tea Party Protests in San Antonio, Dallas, Washington DC (twice) and in College Station.
But I realized that despite our calls, our faxes, our letters, our Town Hall Meetings, and even the big 9/12 protest on the lawn of our nation's capitol building where between 800,000 and 1.2 million people gathered to preserve America, that congress was hell bent to transform (read destroy) this nation in spite of the will of the people.
So, being committed fully to our righteous cause, I became even more determined to preserve this nation. It was then that I became president of our local Tea Party and we are joining with other local Tea Parties to educate and organize ourselves. We are even studying the tactics of Saul Alinsky and ACORN so that we can out-community organize, the community organizers.
But I would like to serve notice to George Soros, Maurice Strong, Barak Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi, and all their evil minions, that THEY WILL LOSE! You can't beat God. It is a fool's errand to attempt to destroy what God has created. And although they will cause much suffering and chaos, and cause the Constitution to hang by a single thread, and it may seem that they are at the brink of victory, that at that very moment, when for those who love liberty and freedom that it seems that all is lost and we are doomed to serve as slaves to a Marxist state; at that very moment, God will save this nation and all the machinations of those who seek to destroy it will come to naught. Know this, sometime in my life most of these people will end up in jail. We will win! We will preserve America! And I join with the millions who say that Tyranny will win over my dead body!
