America teeters on the brink of Obama’s and the liberal Congress’ 2011 dream-child sequestration. Now the President wants a “balanced approach” to fix sequestration. Remember his “balanced” package for the fiscal cliff was tax increases and NO spending cuts.
Broken promises, cover-ups, a loose interpretation of truth, and “At this point, what difference does it make?” disclaimers convince us one party has no conscience and the other has no courage. Who are the heroes (usually ordinary folks) born for a time such as this and training to serve in this battle?
Consider some examples from history. The LORD told Gideon to pick his team. “You have too many people on your side… ‘Anyone who is afraid or unsteady may return home ….” Twenty-two thousand people went home, leaving ten thousand. “There are still too many people. Take them down to the water, and I will weed them out for you there… Set aside those who lap the water with their tongues, as a dog laps, from those who bend down on their knees to drink…With the three hundred men who lapped I will rescue you…” That band of courageous, mentally alert warriors defeated armies of thousands.
There was no battle at Valley Forge, but it was the turning point of the Revolutionary War. The Continental army was bloody, beaten, battle-weary, and ready to quit; ravaged by hunger, disease, despair, raw weather, dozens of desertions, and death. General Washington conceded, “If the army does not get help soon, in all likelihood it will disband.”
In February the weather eased. In March, General Nathanael Greene was appointed head of the Commissary Department, starting the flow of food and supplies. In April, Baron von Steuben, a mercenary not a baron, began training the troops into a fighting force. May brought the French Alliance with military and financial support. On June 19, 1778, exactly six months after they arrived at Valley Forge, the American revolutionary forces immerged, transformed from rebels into a mature Army that defeated the tyranny of the elite English ruling class.
During the Korean War personnel from Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT) formed a small, elite force of 300 men. Training commenced with one grueling week designed to eliminate the men from the boys. It is still considered “HELL WEEK.” They were trained to operate on Sea, Air and Land, hence their name. The U.S. Navy SEALs established by President John F. Kennedy in 1962 are the counterpart to the Army “Green Berets.” Navy SEALs are physically fit, mentally sharp, mature and resilient. They conduct on-the-ground Special Reconnaissance and carry out clandestine, small-unit, high-impact missions that large forces cannot.
Who are the brave, tenacious, trained Conservative Commandos? They are the protectors of the grail of freedom who write books and blogs, host talk radio, citizen lobby, and cast lonely “no” votes against spending, taxation, over-regulation and entitlements in local, state and federal governments. In short, “Uncle Sam needs you!”
