It’s Our Time Now

December 22, 2009

The Founders spent endless days fighting over a vision for this nation.  Our grandparents fought to keep it free for us.  Men and women continue to fight on our behalf today.  Our parents do everything in their power to make our lives pleasant.  But it’s time we take matters into our own hands.  I’m talking to the youth of America.  As I sit here writing this my mind is whirling about with thoughts of what is going on in this country and my heart is heavy.  I am just one of a growing number.  A growing number young people concerned about their futures.  We come from all backgrounds, beliefs, and economic standings.  But we all share one thing in common, we love America.   We love America and have a similar vision.  Our parents have taught us morals and ideals but we also have some thoughts of our own.  We’ve been inspired by the likes of Ben Franklin, George Washington, Ronald Reagan Sarah Palin, and countless others who have gone before us and who are speaking on our behalf right now. The one’s who have fought in the past and fight for our future.  But we have decided we need to take some action of our own.  We’ve started blogs, begun tweeting, gone to tea parties, started reading and becoming informed.  We’ve even started a website.  We’ve set aside our evenings to watch endless debates on cap and trade and healthcare on CSPAN.  We irritate our parents and friends with our endless thoughts on what is happening and what we believe should be done.  We are young but we are not dumb.  Our experience with politics and the way things should be done is limited but, we have common sense.  For most of us, this is all new.  We see our futures being spent by greedy politicians, we watch the debt clock and think “How am I suppose to pay for that?” We see that our wealth is going to be spread around and that common sense inside kicks in and tells us that isn’t right.  We didn’t grow up getting trophies for trying; we got trophies for winning and winning only. We are fed up.  We aren’t going to take it anymore.  We are poised and ready to do what needs to be done to save this country.  We are more than eager to get out and campaign and vote for those candidates we see fit to work for us.  We will stand firm in our convictions and not let anyone tell us to sit down and shut up.  We’re coming Washington.  Watch out.  Our future rests in your hands and we will do what we feel is best for our future and the future of our families. 

Young people, gather round together.  No more sitting idly by as your future is being flushed down the toilet.  Stand up.  Fight for your God given rights.  Don’t let anyone tell you your voice doesn’t matter.  Read up on the issues.  Learn history.  Decide for yourself.  Do you want a future filled with paying for greedy politicians spending sprees?  Do you want a future where you can’t live in a home unless it meets the government’s energy standards to fight a non-existent environmental issue?  Do you want to be told you MUST buy healthcare even though, you know you’ll be fine without it?  Do you want to live in a country run by union thugs?  Do you want to live in a country where any disagreement with the government results in your being punished?  Do you want to be told that what you believe doesn’t matter?  If not, join us at The Conservative Youth Project.  There you can meet other like minded young people dedicated to educating themselves and getting facts out on the issues facing this country.

    It’s heartening to see young people take the time and make the effort to educate themselves and others about the realities of politics and their impact on so many lives. I wish you all the very best. God bless.

    Hey, I’m a “member” of CYP and I’m an old fart. Heck, my daughter is older than the founders of CYP and I’m sure she’d be fully supportive, if she were allowed to voice her opinion that loudly (US Military regs). It warms my heart to see folks like Jackie, Ian, Cole, et al actually educating themselves and taking a stand.

    Perhaps with youth like these and many others, all is not lost after all.

    But I do agree, young people. Stand up, educate yourselves to the history of this great country and don’t allow the schools to tell you what they want you to believe. And then speak out from the roof-tops, knowing there are many more like you doing the same. And you know there are many who came before you (and are still alive and kicking, like me) who are also speaking out. You are not alone in this but your voices are indeed necessary.

    All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good men (and women and youth) to do nothing.

    I agree.

    It will be extremely difficult to undo everything that has been done in the last 100 years. Both parties have been passing laws that take away freedom since the 1930s. We need a way to roll back laws, or an expiration date for laws. We also need an approval voting system, so neither party can get too out of control of their voting base. (so we can get more presidents like Reagan!)
    And term limits for congress would be helpful. 🙂

    I am a young person myself. I will have to check out the CYP. Thanks for the post!
