And Now What?

       In the ministry I have often said that one of the most dangerous times in a church's calendar year if the Mission's Conference. Why? Because emotions run high, commitments and sacrifices are made and then the inevitable happens. The conference ends. Gone are the thoughts of the work involved, the sacrifices made, and most importantly the cause. The goal has been met and people are tired.
       So what does this have to do with Reclaiming America's Future? Everything! The 2010 elections are over, most victories were achieved, and people are tired. But though a battle was won the war has just begun. One of the most dangerous things that can happen to us as well as the Tea Party and other Conservative groups is to think that we have a leg up on things when in fact we only just started our journey. During the long and arduous campaign process there were many tedious yet necessary tasks. During those times it was hard to understand just what difference we could make. Well the differences were the landslide victories of 2010. The unthinkable and what was considered the un-doable happened.  All this occurred because of convictions and with those convictions determination.We removed a record number of liberals who had their hearts set on destroying our country.
        We have a long road to travel before 2012 and all the gains of 2010 will be lost should we not keep our shoulders to the work. But what of the "lesser" tasks? It seems that in the excitement of the elections certain things drifted into oblivion.
  • What of the Ground Zero Mosque?  Was this only an election hot button or do we really care about what Muslims have planned on this memorial site?
  • What about illegal immigration? Was this also just an election issue or is it still a National Security issue? There are reported deaths daily at our border.
  • What about local church involvement in everyday issues? Do we only want them involved during elections? Its because the church slept that we are in a recovery mode.
  • And HB 5741? Will we not ask our newly elected officials to make sure that it is dead? Or do we believe in servitude as long as its the right master?
      And what of critical new issues? One in particular is to hold our "representatives" accountable. Many of my friends worked tirelessly to get these people elected. So now what? Will we be ignored or will we demand that they follow up and honor the trust that was bestowed upon them? We need to make them accountable and one way is to keep running reports of their actions or inactions.

      The 2010 Election was indeed historical. But we have more history to make. Rest assured that those who do not cherish this great country as we do are not sitting on their hands and waiting till 2012. They are active in taking America apart and taking from us what is rightly ours. So what will you do now? Will you help us fight on? We now have ears that will hear, but it is up to us to make them listen.

       We need your help. Will you be willing to give up a few hours a month in order to address the things that we felt were important leading into the election? If so come join with us in the fight to Reclaim America's Future. If not then the elections were indeed just like a Mission's Conference. I for one will fight on. Will you join me?
