We Have a New Blogger!

We have a new blogger- His name is Jonathan Thatcher and he has written a compelling peice.


Our nation is once again in deep water. A global war of extremists openly seeks to divide and wear down our national will. However, it is the domestic extremists that pose . Our nation is functioning with only a single intact political party, the Republican Party. The Democratic Party has become little more than a fund raising and media coordination machine, marching to the tune of the Clintons, George Soros and their allies who no longer value the United States of America. The extremists in their camp openly mock their own citizenship, our nation's miraculous history, and the very Americans who lay down their lives in defense of our own lives. Insensitive to the very shoulders they stand on, and profoundly blind to history, they create a concept of a disloyal American opposition. 230 years of enduring moral values, national accomplishments, respect of life and family, and expectation of freedom and democracy stand in the way of their "inevitable" rule. Inevitable to them because of their policy of fear. Fear that our nation is collapsing too fast --that America's bedrock values that sustained us through civil war, depression and two world wars are no match for their "enlightened" 1960's era non-democratic leadership.

It will be up to the skill, wisdom, and experience of the President to defend and strengthen American values in the face of such challenges. This calls for a Statesman, not a politician. A politician acts in 90% self-interest and in 10% the common individual. A Statesman reverses and exceeds this ratio, particularly during times of war or great challenge, often with astonishing courage and wisdom. A stark example is the comparison of President Clinton to Winston Churchill.

Mitt Romney is indeed a Statesman. His record of past and present accomplishment is truly unmatched, and always favors the individual, whether as shareholder or as citizen. And his courage to engage difficult burdens and work undaunted until victory is legendary. No ordinary politician would have dared touch, let alone righted, the Salt Lake Olympics, itself reeling from the corruption of intense self-interest. Few governors would have acted so swiftly to remove the entrenched Massachusetts tollway fiefdom in favor of the safety and accountability for the citizen. All are sure losers in the face of media and campaign advisers. To a politician, this is all important. To a Statesman this is far less important. A Statesman understand the dynamics of business, politics, and leadership and will openly rely on deep core values to deliver enduring solutions.

However, as a contender Mitt Romney has a Primary and National election to win. And not enough of our nation truly knows him. The liberal media already see him as a threat. However, 21st Century style campaigning will help bypass this issue. The solution is on our very computer screens. Enabling awareness of Mitt Romney is a worthy citizen task as the burden on the next president will be an awesome one. Defense of values in the face of fierce opposition is never easy just as it was for Americans that the very dawn of our nation.

Defense of values in the face of fierce opposition marks the challenge of our new century also. Yet history shows that steady weakness and failures of early 20th century politicians lead to decades of calamity and world war. How different are Europe's and Russia's leaders in our day? As the only remaining superpower, US politics and politicians as usual no longer seem up to the task. Our Presidential vote is indeed a global one.

No doubt the noise of political pseudo-psychology and media-manufactured 'opinions and soundbites' will compete for national attention. However, let it be us to help enable a true Statesman, Mitt Romney, to compete for the Presidency of the United States. As encouragement for our action, some wise Americans left us these time-honored words:

We the people, in order to form
a more perfect union
establish justice
ensure domestic tranquility
provide for the common defense
promote the general welfare
secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity
do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America
