As anticipated, to denigrate and marginalize the Tea Party Movement and the Restoring Honor Rally on 8/28, in characteristically unscrupulous form many on the rattled left have launched a cascade of venomous racist epithets against Tea Baggers, Glenn Beck and all other conservative Americans--leaders and grassroots types alike--who have dared challenge the insufferable elitism and alien progressivism which now dominates the once venerable Democratic Party.
Like many other Rochesterians, I too attended the rally in DC on the 28th and was genuinely inspired by the propriety, patriotism and rectitude of the half-million grassroots Americans--men, women, children, veterans, and their families--who peacefully demonstrated their sincere and proud commitment to restoring constitutional order, free enterprise, our founding principles and honor to America.
A Second American Revolution? Absolutely no question about it.
I came away with this certainty in mind: awakened to the domestic political threats arrayed against us, a resurgent "we the people" WILL restore constitutional order. In time, cancerous alien ideologies like Socialism and Marxism, aka Progressivism, will soon have no home, much less a beachhead, in these United States.
Frankly, I've never felt more hopeful. But, the struggle is not yet over. We must keep our eyes on the ball and our noses to the grindstone. More dispiriting challenges await us, so don't go along to get along, don't surrender, and keep moving forward.
