I recommend a book for everyone in America. It is called Big Agenda by David Horowitz. Most of what he writes about is public information from various sources which I have read. What he has done, however, is to condense the horrible examples of the Liberal bullying of America into one succinct book. All throughout the chapters I kept thinking that the deck is stacked against America. Our Liberty has permitted bully organizations to work diligently against America. For example let me talk about the Ford Foundation. We have all heard about this noble foundation initiated by Henry Ford to encourage others to take the road of free enterprise and conservatism to success. When Henry was alive it served to do that. Then Henry had to succumb to life, and he ran out of time, he died. The Ford Foundation remained conservative for a time, but gradually left-wing liberals infiltrated the board of directors. It didn’t take long before the entire board and the CEO was liberal. Since Henry established the Foundation to be totally independent of the Ford family they could not change the dynamics. The Liberals hi-jacked the Ford Foundation and re-wrote the mission statement to serve the liberal agenda. That is only one of the many foundations that have been taken over by liberals. Our laws allow them to operate tax-free as long as they fulfill the requirements of a 501c3 organization. One thing I learned is that there are somewhere around three hundred very tax free liberal organizations that work to change and transform America. There are very few on the Conservative side, and as we saw during Obama’s tenure the IRS worked against conservatives by denying them the same tax free status as these many liberal organizations. Remember Trump’s statement that the system is “rigged?” The tax free status of these subversive organizations is only one of the many ways it is rigged.
Each chapter of the book takes on a different aspect of life like for instance the public service unions. President Roosevelt, as liberal as he was, believed that unionizing people who work for the government is criminal. It becomes a monopoly. When you consider that police, firemen, teachers are all public service workers who can hold the government hostage by striking, it becomes clear as to why Roosevelt believed them wrong. Some of the largest trouble we have today are under funded retirement funds. Do the union workers worry? No, because the government will raise taxes in order to give them what they ask.. You and I need to improve our productivity in order for our company to give us a raise, but the public service people don’t have to do anything except to hold us hostage with a strike.
One subject that will get me on the soap box is that of under-performing public schools. I live in a district where that is a hard idea to imagine because I don’t live in the inner city where the school kids don’t stand a chance to get ahead. Our school system, and the teacher’s unions all work for the benefit of the teachers and the administrators instead of kids. Inner city kids have no chance in hell of going to a private school. The system does not allow competition, therefore, what ever product they turn out is fine. The parents and the kids be damned must be their motto. I got mine, and your kids are on their own. It is not my fault if they are un-teachable. What I have to watch for is my district feeding some liberal bull shit change of history, or worse yet an Islamic infiltration. Our college system is totally lost to liberals who feed our kids a different history, there is no God, the one percent are evil, capitalism is corrupt, equal outcomes for all, etc., etc., etc.
Somewhere within the book, the author quoted boxer Mike Tyson. I will paraphrase the quote, “you can go into the match with a game plan, but the plan changes once you get punched in the mouth.” This is the advice author Horowitz gives to republicans. Democrats all unite for their cause and any opposition from republicans will be addressed with a punch in the mouth. Republicans hate to be called racist, homophobes, misogynists, etc. His recommendation is for republicans to fight back. Republicans are too afraid of the outcome of putting up their dukes and slugging it out. President Trump’s election win is the result of his not being afraid to call out his opponent as a crook and a liar. All he did was state the truth, but none of the other republican candidates had the stomach for doing that.
When I was in grammar school back in the 1950’s I was bullied a lot. I was a small runt of a kid who was afraid of his own shadow. I feared the kids who goaded me and insulted me because the idea of getting punched in the mouth was not appealing. More than that I feared what my mother would do to me if she learned of my fighting. One day, I had enough of the taunting, and I jumped on a kid named Otis. I wailed the crap out of him. He went home bloody and crying. My mother severely reprimanded me and I lost privileges, but my honor remained intact. The punishment I got was well worth the consequence. A second time I was confronted by a kid named Ron who was just egging for a fight. I obliged, and sent him packing. I never had a problem with a bully again.
The task of undoing over fifty years of liberal legislation, and social attitudes is monumental, but Horowitz has put forth some basic changes that we can make to get the momentum rolling back in the conservative direction. All we have to do is to speak loudly and clearly to our meally mouthed republican congressmen to write and pass laws to make the change happen. Will it be easy? Hell no, the liberals aren’t going to lay down and die just because we punch them in the mouth a few times. They have enough money and organizational power to bury us. We can’t let them do that without a bloody battle to defend our liberty.
