In Light of the Conservative Convention

The CPAC Convention was held these last few days, firing up the Conservative base in light of our nation’s current socialistic and entitlement mentality (i.e., the “narcissistic crisis”). A variety of conservative speakers were on tap, and the commencing address was given by none other than the true leader of the Conservative movement, The Doctor of Democracy and America’s Real Anchorman: Rush Limbaugh.

For the last 20 years Rush has blazed the trail for the New Media via talk radio and set in motion a conservative media movement challenging that of the established “Drive-By” Media and the Liberal, Socialistic “Left.” As Americans, we owe a great debt of gratitude and praise for his fearless, never-ending pursuit of the truth over all these years.

As I listened to Rush I couldn’t help getting fired up. He was throwing out that delicious “red meat” that we conservatives love and believe in with all our hearts, but as he went on I couldn’t help but see the current reality inlight of the rhetoric and Rushtillian optimism.

In our human existence here in time, conservative values and morality are truly the best ideology for living here on planet earth. These values help to restrain the unbridled passions (i.e., Fallen Nature) of humanity and include personal accountability, individual responsibility, charity and caring for the well being of our fellow man.

As we have arrived in the day which now exists, these conservative principles have helped us to achieve the status of the greatest nation on earth. We were founded on the bedrock of a Judean/ Christian heritage from which all conservative values spring forth. Our founding Fathers comprehended how crucial our godly heritage would be in light of the freedoms that we posses. John Adams made the following statements:

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion (Christianity). Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”

“Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is Religion (Christianity) and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure than they have it now, they may change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty. They will only exchange Tyrants and Tyrannies.”

John Adams and our founding fathers knew that once a firm reliance and sense of accountability to Almighty God dissipated, the door would be open to abandon our Constitution, and the resulting vacuum would bring in a Fascist state of tyranny.

It is not my place to reject the optimism and hope that was presented at the CPAC convention. God knows, we conservatives need it in light of the nation’s present conditions. As a student of history, however, such optimism is delusional in light of the realities at hand and the times in which we live.

Global tyranny exist today in such forms as European Socialism, Islamic Fascism and Terrorism, the Putin and Chavez Dictatorships, South and Central America Socialistic Communism, African Dictatorial Fascist Governments, Red China aggression, etc. Now in our own beloved country of these United States of America, we face the absolute erosion of the once prevalent Judean/Christian values and moral compass that guided us in our last 300 years. Since the 1960’s we have never recovered socially, and all the conservative ideals in the world will not stop the decay and erosion which has taken place. Now in our country led by President Obama and the Left-controlled House and Senate, what remains seems ready to disintegrate right before our eyes. When this is done absolutely nothing will be salvageable. (See Chart) Such an environment as exists at present has in the past empowered tyrants like Mussolini, Hitler, Mao and Stalin. This trend is a historical fact, and we can expect our county is certainly no different. Optimism and great expectations in the light of a nation adrift with a culture of subjectivism and narcissism is a delusion. Wake up CPAC Americans! We are hoping for the best as we are about to head right off a mile-high waterfall and perish in our good intentions.

The Conservative ideology in no way can ever change and correct the fallen nature of humanity. All that conservative values can do is contain that which will one day succumb to the heart desires and passions of fallen man. The bottom line is that our hope can only be found in the reality and truth of Almighty God and His Saving remedy for humanity.

This writer is not saying that we shouldn’t fight to preserve this once great country, to write our legislators and to voice our opinions while we still have time to do so. We should with all our might, but the reality is that there is no Utopia - Conservative or Liberal - that will bring human peace. That is the absolute hardest reality for men to swallow (conservative or liberal) and it is commonly rejected. When this reality is rejected the only thing left is to create an optimistic delusion found in both liberal and conservative camps.

In light of our present conditions at hand, in a similar situation at the brink of national apathy, unbelieving rejection and demise of the nation of Israel, Jesus made this profound statement to whosoevers that would listen to Him:

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light (Matt 11:28-30).

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name (John 1:12).

In these last days, Almighty God calls out to whosoevers that will have an ear to hear. Our hope and expectations are not found in us or in political ideologies, but in the Faithful and Trustworthy Person of Almighty God.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me (Rev 3:20).

As the days draw nigh and the Kingdom of God is at hand, may your only expectations be found in the wonderful promises and precious truths of Almighty God. In Him alone is found the consolation we need to get us through. Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, as taught by Almighty God through His Word? If not, put your trust in Him today.

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil (Proverbs 3:5-7).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
