2012 – The Sleeping Giant Awakens!


Posted on January 1, 2012 by Ron Ewart, ©2011

…  Pearl Harbor brought out the ferociousness of the most powerful nation on earth, a nation that found itself under attack by a determined foreign enemy.  It also brought forth the rage of a sleeping giant, and this great nation defeated three aligned and heavily armed countries who dared to test the commitment and will of the American people and its military might.  They lost in utter humiliation.

Not all of our enemies are so blatant and obvious as were Germany, Italy and Japan.  The 9/11 attack was perpetrated by the unseen enemy of religious fanaticism, and this enemy will be testing us daily and remain in our sights for many decades to come.  We will struggle on how best to defeat this enemy in that it does not emanate from a nation with borders.  There are no uniforms, there are no flags and there are no rules, just hit and run and bestial brutality with the goal of absolute domination.

But there is one more enemy that lurks in the shadows, masquerading as a benefactor, when in reality it is a radical ideology, not much different than radical Islam in its attempt to intimidate and control the masses.  For years this ideology has been growing like an undetected cancer (Also see GLOOG), metastasizing in the fabric of our culture and eating away at the foundations of our institutions.  This growing cancer is foreign to all of the principles of freedom.  Its weapons of domination come in the form of irrational compassion and the exploitation of emergencies.  It undermines our liberties and brainwashes our children through propaganda, hype, distortions, lies and the enforcement of political correctness.  This enemy has been so successful in its efforts to conquer the hearts and minds of the people, that America, as a free nation, hovers precariously on the brink of self-destruction.  …

Let 2012 be the start of term limits for all politicians, a balanced budget, secure borders and a reasonable and fair immigration policy that does not grant amnesty to those that break our laws and English becomes America’s official language.  Further, that all federal lawsuits against individual state laws that are designed to control illegal immigration, be dropped.

Let 2012 be the year that scales back government spending to pre-2008 levels, with substantial reductions every year thereafter.  And let this move to scale back government spending also be a move to scale back government itself.

Let 2012 be the year where marriage between one man and one woman, as nature and natural law intended, is officially mandated by federal law and the U. S. Justice Department defends that law with vigor.

Let 2012 be the year that our foreign and military policy transmit the “walk softly but carry a big stick” message to the rest of the world.  And let’s quit fighting wars we don’t intend to win.

Let 2012 be the year we stop appeasing our enemies, bowing to our friends or enemies and apologizing for America.

Let 2012 be the year that the unconstitutional Obama Care legislation is summarily removed from the law books and reasonable laws are adopted to help control health care costs and deliver the same quality health care we have been getting that you can’t get in any other country on earth.

Let 2012 be the year that the Department of Education, the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency are dismantled or scaled way back and most of their functions returned to the states where they belong.

Let 2012 be the year of a national energy policy that puts America’s energy needs first.  Highly subsidized alternative energy sources such as wind, solar, or ethanol from corn can never replace crude oil, natural gas, coal, nuclear or hydro-electric power.  A nation without a growing energy supply is a nation in peril.

Let 2012 be the year we start a reasonable environmental policy that recognizes constitutional safeguards and protections.  Let’s bury, once and for all, this non-sense and global con-game of “man-caused global warming“, euphemistically called “climate change” and the absurd policy that forces its implementation, “the precautionary principle.

Let 2012 be the year that state and local governments quit buckling under Federal mandates and international social and environmental policies like Agenda 21, smart growth and sustainable development.

Let 2012 be the year that we de-fund the United Nations and send it offshore where it belongs.  The United Nations is one of the most corrupt organizations on the planet and it never works for American interests.  In fact, the UN works against American interests and our sovereignty and yet the American taxpayer pays almost 25% of the cost to support the UN.

Let 2012 be the year we return to our roots of freedom and where we all, the people and politicians alike, truly preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States as the Founders intended.

Let 2012 be the year that the “Sleeping Giant” awakens in full force and fury and subdues the domestic enemy, this radical ideology, that for over 100 years has threatened to rip and tear a free and prosperous America to pieces.

Let 2012 be the greatest year since freedom was born in 1776, “….. when some ordinary men, with vision and the wisdom of age and experience, in a time of turmoil and confusion, gathered together on the distant shores of a new land and laid down a ‘blue print’ for free men and women with common purpose and resolve to live out their lives and govern their individual and collective affairs by adhering to that ‘blue print’.  The guidance of that ‘blue print’, through years of significant change, has allowed a free society to pioneer, grow and prosper into the strongest nation in all of recorded human history.”  (from our book “The Dimming Light of Freedom”)

Let 2012 be the year that freedom is born anew!

Ladies and gentlemen, we don’t have to pick up our guns and kill someone to save America.  All we have to do is to vigorously and judiciously use the processes, the mechanisms and the laws already in place, with sufficient courage and force, by millions of Americans of one mind and we can change America for the better.  No it won’t be easy, but who said maintaining freedom was easy.
