These vines manifest themselves through:
Social media censorship of the free exchange of ideas
Mainstream messaging that drives toward thought control
Political correctness designed to force behavioral compliance
The selective application and weaponization of the very ideals, laws and institutions designed to protect us
Large-scale attacks on the family and on patriotism itself
These problems are big problems, but you do not have to be some D.C. superstar to be a part of the solution. Victory can be achieved through the coordinated efforts of many people doing small but courageous acts of patriotism.
Start by reaching out to those around you. Be an outspoken voice in your church and community. You will be amazed how many hearts and minds can be swayed just by calmly, intelligently and respectfully presenting a viewpoint outside of what is said in mainstream news.
Next, make it your goal to be where the action is taking place. It is commonly said that “history is made by those who show up.” Take the time to go to meetings at city hall. Be a presence at your local school board meetings. Get to know your state’s legislators and keep on top of what is going on at your state’s capitol.
Don’t just complain about how elections are not conducted fairly. Be a part of the solution by petitioning or lobbying at whatever political level that suits you to strengthen election integrity laws. Contact your local party precinct about volunteering as a poll watcher. Remember, the most powerful office in the world is not the President of the United States but, on any given election day, it is a determined and patriotic precinct volunteer.
If your local officials refuse to stand for what is right, employ the ultimate weapon of the grassroots activist. Tell them that you will run against them and follow through on it.
Every politician at every level fears nothing more than the possibility of losing their power. Even if the odds are stacked against you in your township or district, a strong showing from conservatives can keep your officials from straying too far to the left in the future.
However you decide to get involved, make the decision today. America needs soldiers in the fight for freedom.
No one is coming to rescue us from our problems. Some think that the judiciary will solve all of our problems, but they have proven themselves to be unreliable at best.
Rather than waiting for someone else to fight for us, we must be willing to do the hard work ourselves.
The forces arrayed against us are great. They have money, power and privilege on their side.
They want to force the neck of every hardworking American into the yoke of servitude and taxation.
They want to force our mouths into the muzzle of Big Tech censorship and cancel culture.
They want to take our children from us, forcing them to look to Big Brother government rather than those who truly love them.
Yet, for all their plans and power, the forces of darkness can still be defeated.
A friend recently gave me an interesting new perspective on a familiar chapter in American history. Remember that General George Washington commanded a small band of patriots against the greatest military force on the planet.
My friend said “His Continental Army was out-trained, out-gunned, and out-numbered by the British Regulars. The Red Coats were a hardened and well-disciplined army against whom Washington’s rag-tag volunteers were no match.
“The colonies were divided over the war. Congress was practically dysfunctional during the most critical period. And in the infamous 1778 winter encampment at Valley Forge, Washington’s 11,000[-man] army nearly dissolved from starvation, disease, and discouragement among the ranks!”
We all know how the story ended. Against all odds, the Americans beat the British an history.
