I told you on Thursday, after looking at what's in this financial "reform" bill, the republic as we know it is over.
The values and virtues of America's generations past are not even close to what we have right now. Let me correct that: You are still the same. It's Washington that has changed.
And when you read, as I have, all about revolutions and revolutionaries and begin to understand how they think, you can see what their game plan is. When you compare the revolutions in places like Venezuela, Cuba and Russia to where America is, you can see where we are in the revolutionary timeline.
They've already taken over health care. Is there any greater control than that of deciding the fate of someone's life?
They also decide which businesses live and which businesses die through the financial bill and unelected bureaucrats.
So they control your life and your pursuit of happiness. There's only one missing piece: Liberty. But they are coming for it. It's only by the grace of God — and by you standing up and being heard — that they don't already have it.
I know I'm called a fear-monger for saying things like the republic as we know it is over. That may be scary, but I'm not saying it to scare you. I don't say it lightly; I believe it.
Maybe I'm wrong — I hope I am. But I'm bringing to you what I believe to be the truth. And the truth is that by 2012, at best, we will be France. And in case you need a reminder on France, they've sucked at everything since the beret and even that sucked.
That's not who we are, but that's who these radicals want you to be. What do we do if that's reality and what I'm telling you is true? You don't have to believe it. I just want you or your friend who's not awake yet, to consider it.
Next week, I'm going to go through what I believe is the blueprint being followed by this administration. It's everything they are planning to do — read through it at GlennBeck.com. You'll be nodding your head going, "Oh, yeah — that's done. That's done."
But you cannot fall into the one trap that they are hoping you fall into: Becoming discouraged and frustrated.
It's easy to get frustrated. We go through all of this effort and seemingly nothing has changed. But don't stop what you are doing. Keep going. Don't despair. They need you to get angry and act out.
But we have to come together. Put aside any differences they've had — any bickering — hug, make up — whatever.
Ronald Reagan had a sign on his desk that read: "There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he does not mind who gets the credit."
A 9/12er got a hold of someone on our staff and they wanted me to lead more Tea Party events, etc. He said he couldn't do it because he "didn't know what he was doing."
You think I do? I'm a dad. I'm busy. I'm tired. But these are the times that try men's souls. God helps those that help themselves. Let's help ourselves.
Put your boots on.
In my lifetime, I have never served my country. I have never put my boots on and gone out into the field with a gun. I'd wet my pants; those guys are heroes. But every one of those heroes will tell you, no sir, I just did what I was supposed to do.
Are you doing what you're supposed to do?
I have not yet begun to fight. I'm not worn out, because I expect miracles. There are people now who are saying: I don't know if I am going on 8/28. I don't know if I'll go to another Tea Party.
Well, if you're done, then the republic truly is done. If you're done, they will take your liberty as well.
