Just about every website around is asking for donations or
support from sales, right on up to Drudge's site with its 700
million hits a year. If my Flagship website weren't hosted
gratis by an Australian netfriend from his personal server (he is
a superprogrammer type) then either Flagship would be gone, or I'd
be crying for donations also.
What's the problem? From what I see and hear, it's a
matter of results. People contribute not just to read what's
going on, but what's happening as a result of all the smoke and
flame on the pages of our various e-zines (liberal and
conservative). I'm as guilty as any of the other writers in
aiming my articles toward "what's wrong in our country"
but it hasn't sparked any activity that I'm aware of among
right-wing conservatives who would like to see our country return
to constitutional government. Regardless of what the people
want and what the writers write, the government moves on like an
explorer space probe that once released from earth, may send back
signals but it responds to no commands from earth.
We need to have more reporting on results of conservative
efforts, if there is any amount of it to report. If there
isn't we need to know why. Is it really a lack of money?
Or is it just that a small number of us regret losing America to
the globalists of either of the "major parties" (which
are two faces of a single coin) while the majority of Americans
are asleep or want a bigger government for bigger socialism?
Conservatism has never been popular compared with liberalism
for one reason: the abundance of the few "lucky
guys" like Bill Gates and Co. emphasizes the merits of luck,
of being in the right place at the right time with the right stuff
... and the rest, the majority of us, just plug along for what
purports to be a living wage, constantly fighting the war against
inflation, higher taxes and diminishing returns, cyclical
recession, and company changes due to mergers, new technology and
public demand. Conservatism doesn't seem to offer the
"security" of the liberal agenda, a spoof that's worked
for years because folks don't realize there is no security.
Take the infamous 911. At 6 a.m. Eastern Time, New York
had Twin Towers and alarm clocks were ringing to alert folks that
it was Tuesday morning, time to get to the job. By 10 a.m.
Eastern Time, the United States was on a wartime footing from
which it has never recovered. What happened to the general
sense of "security?" Americans came with their
security certificates in hand to deliver them up to the federal
government in exchange for any kind of "security" that
the government could deliver. What did it deliver rather
than security? A system of controls that has put us one pen
stroke from martial law, border to border, coast to coast.
In the midst of all this flame and smoke, horror and heroism,
grief and glory, flag-waving Americans rallied to get that
turbaned guy who is now of not much concern to our government,
Osama bin Laden. The president received emergency powers
from Congress equaling or exceeding anything FDR had during World
War II. We're on a wartime footing even though Congress has
declared no war on any nation. We're at war against
ideologies, perhaps religious fanatics, but most decidedly against
the right of sovereign nations to rebel against being brought
under the control of global governance. Now Iraq is the
villain, even though to this point, Iraq hasn't launched a missile
against Israel or perpetrated any direct, overt acts against the
United States. We're just at war against "evil"
and the great "might be a threat" groups.
Who has risen up in America to speak for the conservative
cause? A bunch of alternative media journalists and
columnists who see that this nation is just participating in the
great global governance agenda for the elitists who want control
of earth, water, oil, gas, and the world's population (including
the right to determine who lives, who dies and who comes to
We have no real results to show for our efforts. Can we
keep asking for support when there is no effort to unify
conservatives, setting aside internecine differences as to
religion and third party affiliations to form a party or a
movement with the strength to make itself heard in Washington?
We can ask, but we shall not receive a great deal until our people
see results, and it's difficult to tell them that the results are
up to them and not us. We can write ourselves blue in the
face, but it's the people themselves who have to take the
initiative to form the citizens groups to confront the issues,
both foreign and domestic.
We have a lot of hurting people in this nation who need to know
that conservatives aren't out to throw grannies in the street,
close down Social Security for those who put into the system for
decades, or take away the children from the poor. In fact,
it's the liberals who do these very things, and then cry about
"victims" as if liberal agendas helped the poor.
No, liberal agendas create elitists and thrive off victim classes,
which is why they continually and relentlessly support their
If you doubt that the liberal agenda supports the continuation
of victims classes, look at who belongs to the liberal elite:
Rockefellers, Ford, Carnegie, names of the super-rich of an
earlier America that was free. Their huge amassed fortunes
support taking away what incentive there is to exploit opportunity
in America, and create serfdom for the victim classes, and control
for the elite.
Who supports the American Civil Liberties Union? I'd like
to know. Their sources of income might prove very
interesting, although the money is probably funneled through a lot
of vague sources. A significant portion of their membership
is comprised of lawyers, and if anyone can create loopholes, it's
Constitutionalists would like to see some results. Among
those, and this is my hobby horse, is the creation of a major
media broadcast network to publicize the conservative voice.
No one seems inclined to come forth with the money to support that
One reason past tyrants and dictators have seized the media
first is that people generally will believe the "news"
as reporting the truth. And yes, millions of Americans still
tune to the major networks for their news, although the number is
growing smaller since the alternative internet media came into its
own. Nevertheless, we in the internet media risk the danger
of being shut down as "anti-American" unless our
position as patriotic, constitutional Americans can be vindicated.
"Show us the results" is the cry of many a
No ... conservatives out in cyberland ... you show us some
results. Otherwise, we who write are spitting in the wind,
risking our names and safety so that you can read, agree and wish,
but do nothing.
You show US the results.
