This year, 2010, could be the most important year of our time. The November election will determine whether Barack Obama succeeds in his goal of “fundamentally transforming the United States,” or stop spending our nation into what our government now admits is “unsustainable debt” that will burden our children and grandchildren. We must make a solid right turn, starting with the typical American can-do attitude. Conservatives should be of good cheer!
The American people are waking up. Tea Parties continue to attract citizens who have never before been involved in politics. Incumbent Members of Congress are afraid to hold Town Hall Meetings because their constituents keep repeating that they don’t want Obamacare. People now realize that the Stimulus spending plan created only government jobs, and that his healthcare bill is a scam because it means higher taxes, less choice, and poorer health care. We used to be taught that all problems have solutions in federal spending and agencies. But now, the majority of Americans realize, as Ronald Reagan said, that government is the problem, not the solution. No politician wants to be called a liberal any more.
We now know we CAN win. When I took on the ten-year battle against the Equal Rights Amendment, absolutely nobody thought we had any chance to win. But we did. Our ERA victory proved that the grassroots can rise up and defeat all the powers that be, including three Presidents, nearly all public officials, 99% of the media, big money, and even Hollywood. Then came Ronald Reagan’s victories in 1980 and 1984, so now we know that conservatives can win elections. Conservatives have suddenly become the majority voting bloc. The Gallup Poll reports that 40% of Americans describe their political views as conservative and only 21% as liberal.
