Kevin Bryant

After last Sunday’s healthcare vote in the house, it is hard not to feel deflated. It seems like the people of the United States has done nothing but fought against the policies and agenda of this president since the day he took office.

Next comes the immigration crisis, then that will be followed by the education crisis using no child left behind as a basis to control all education public and private, then the climate change crisis leading to cap and trade, after that there will be who knows. The government owns half the car industries, many of the banks and financial institutions, they now control healthcare and for the love of God, I don’t know how government control of student loans made its way into a healthcare bill.

Overwhelm the system. That was the strategy of Cloward and Piven. It was also the strategy of Saul Alinsky. One item after another after another in rapid succession until the foundation crumbles under the pressure. In this case, the foundation is the constitution. When you have an administration and congress that circumvents and/or completely ignores the constitution, then it doesn’t take long for it to mean nothing anymore. In the eyes of the administration and congress, it is a document that has restricted the government for far too long and has outlived its usefulness.

Another aspect of overwhelming the system is to take the fight out of the people. Once the people give up hope of retaining the God given rights, government is allowed to whatever it feels like and wants to do. We have been fighting for what is now 15 straight months against this administration and this congress. When you throw in the bailout bill of the Bush administration and the 2008 election cycle, we conservatives have been fighting for around 2 straight years. I stand in awe of the people of this country who still has any fight at all left in them because I have to tell you, I’m pretty drained.

Not all the fighting against the government has been by conservatives either. We have been joined this past year by many independents and moderate democrats. Somewhere between half and three quarters all Americans has been against 2 or more actions by the government in the past year alone. In all these fights, we, the American people have come out the loser. Besides having to take up arms against our own government, what other way is there to actually get our elected members in congress to do the job they were sent to Washington to do and represent us, We The People?

Like many of you, though I want to give up and quit fighting because I am tired of losing, I will continue to stand up and fight for our country, our freedoms and our way of life as intended by God for us.

Stay strong America. November will eventually get here and TOGETHER, we can start voting these self serving clowns out of office and not stop until we get true representation in Washington.

AL; I log on to many conservative web sites like IBDEditorials and cover all of the Rush, Hannity and Beck radio and TV programming. Thus I read a lot of good conservative blogs and news coverage. Your “Deflated” is a great piece of writing indeed with a message that has to resonate with all of our fellow conservatives. Might I recommend you seek wider publication of this piece?
