It is easy to lose sight of the fact that conservatives are the majority in the land. We leave the shouting and screaming to those who think they can bring perfection to an imperfect world. Conservatives busy themselves with tilling the fields, striving to achieve their goals, and yes, painting that picket fence so often derided by the left. We find time to teach our children right from wrong and to help a neighbor in need. There is just no time left to complain about what government has not done for us.
But every once in a while, into the life of a man, a society or nation, there comes a mortal threat. Normal pursuits are put aside. We rise to meet the threat and we are the silent majority no more. Our voices are heard; heads are turned, the left is surprised. They forgot we were there. The left is confused for they understand us not. First they smirk, then they fear, then they fight with smear once that they see that we are here.
The left fears our guns but we bring not guns to the fight. Our weapon is our vote. We are the majority but that is to no avail if we do not bring our weapon to the scene of the battle. Vote. What else can you do? You can give up a day in November and volunteer to drive voters to the polls. That’s just one idea.
