We have to keep our message simple and clear. What are Conservatives conserving? The Rule of Law. The basis of all our laws is the Constitution.
We must follow the Constitution to limit the federal government as our founders envisioned. Tell your elected officials to follow it if they want your support. Make sure they know what it says and what it means. The language is simple, clear and definite.
Remember, they are our representatives, not our “leaders”. They are supposed to be representing US, We The People, securing our rights and our freedom in our stead.
Once they are in office, strap them down tightly to the Rule of Law; make them read, understand and explain every bit of legislation they consider. Let them know we are watching and listening. Email or call them often with your facts and opinions, or they will tend to ‘go with the flow’ in DC, and we all know how that always turns out.
Read and know the Constitution! Teach your children what it says and why.
Republic = Rule of Law = Conservatives = Republican Party
Democracy = Rule of Mob = “Liberals” = Democrat Party
I, 100Rifles, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
