Convention of Statesmen


It's Your Time in History

The healthcare bill (HR3590) in the Senate right now funds public abortion, healthcare for illegals, robs Medicare of $500,000,000,000 (yes, that's 500 billion), public option (which will destroy the high quality of healthcare we enjoy now) and so much more. The 2,000 plus pages are a travesty of all that is good and right in this nation. I've provided the link so that you may read it for yourself. I urge you to do so and to contact your senators and lay the law down as they decided to abjure the law since January 20, 2009. Demand they listen to their constitutients and vote NO on HR3590. Take no prisoners in this my fellow citizens. The hue and cry raised to the heavens in April must be raised again with no delay or hesitation.

This reform is no reform at all, but a takeover of the American people and nation by the U.S. Congress and the Obama Administration. One sixth of the nation's economic future is tied up in this legislation and it carries with it a price tag that cannot be paid. America will be plunged into an economic disaster deeper and more devastating than we have ever seen. Then no one will have healthcare, plain and simple, not mention any quality of life.

I'm sharing with you Glenn Beck's message to the nation. His plan to restore America is brilliant in its simplicity. Read on:

What an amazing few days on the road this has been. Your spirits have been high, your faith strong and your spine unbendable. I ended my multiday book tour at The Villages with what had been billed as a rally but could be better described as a candid citizen-to-citizen chat.

Today, I have stopped looking for a leader to show us the way out because I have come to realize that the only one who can truly save our us. To change America's course we need to change ourselves, our expectations and our willingness to accept the unacceptable. When we refuse to allow our children to receive a trophy for participation, we are on the road to restoring the meaning of merit in our Republic. When we insist that no one is too big to fail, we will be able to learn from our mistakes, and when we demand that we are self-reliant, we will ensure that others can rely on us, not the government.

There is much to do, much to learn and time is of the essence. While I will be explaining the entire Plan over the coming weeks and months, I did want to give you a preview of some of the highlights:

- Education is key, and not just for our children. To that end, we will be conducting a series of conventions. These will be full-day experiences where you will be immersed in learning about topics ranging from self-reliance, community organizing, the economy and how to be a political force in your own neighborhood and country. The first one will be in Orlando at UCF Arena on March 27th. You will also be able to vote to have a convention in your region by clicking here.

- I have begun meeting with some of the best minds in the country that believe in limited government, maximum freedom and the values of our Founders. I am developing a 100 year plan. I know that the bipartisan corruption in Washington that has brought us to this brink and it will not be defeated easily. It will require unconventional thinking and a radical plan to restore our nation to the maximum freedoms we were supposed to have been protecting, using only the battlefield of ideas.

- All of the above will culminate in The Plan, a book that will provide specific policies, principles and, most importantly, action steps that each of us can take to play a role in this Refounding.

- On August 28, 2010, I ask you, your family and neighbors to join me at the feet of Abraham Lincoln on the National Mall for the unveiling of The Plan and the birthday of a new national movement to restore our great country.

I wish to echo Harold B. Lee's quote on America, for I find such peach and strength in the words of this prophet:
"Men may fail in this country, earthquakes may come, seas may heave beyond their bounds, there may be great drought, disaster, and hardship, but this nation, founded on principles laid down by men whom God raised up, will never fail. This is the cradle of humanity, where life on this earth began in the Garden of Eden. This is the place of the new Jerusalem. This is the place that the Lord said is favored above all other nations in all the world. This is the place where the Savior will come to His temple. This is the favored land in all the world. Yes, I repeat, men may fail, but this nation won't fail. I have faith in America; you and I must have faith in America, if we understand the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are living in a day when we must pay heed to these challenges.

"I plead with you not to preach pessimism. Preach that this is the greatest country in all the world. This is the favored land. This is the land of our forefathers. It is the nation that will stand despite whatever trials or crises it may yet have to pass through. (Ye Are the Light of the World, Harold B. Lee, p350-51)
This is your time, America, your destiny. Know that we stand at the precipice and it is now and at this time that historical decisions must be made. Do you stand or do you fall? Will you fight for your nation or crumple in defeat as communist traitors destroy all we hold dear? Will the Constitution stand or will it fall? I will fight 'til I have drawn my last breath. I stand with my fellow patriots across the land and say we will not surrender this great and divinely created nation. What say you?
