Needed: Principled Conservatives; It’ll Take a Miracle, But …

Written by Allan Erickson on March 4, 2014

The sad truth is most Americans are ignorant, and apathetic. 
They’ve only recently awakened, partially, to the activities of the criminal in the White House, and only then when their health insurance was canceled and costs skyrocketed.
Perhaps they will fully awaken when electric bills triple, when the cost of food and gasoline doubles, or when DHS kicks in the door to confiscate firearms. 
At this point the American people are only reacting to pin pricks to their comfort zone, a selfish orientation.
To save this republic people must react on principle.  They must develop a fierce devotion to proven, traditional principles, to liberty and the general welfare.  That kind of devotion requires a selfless, inspired posture.  It will take a miracle for this to happen in the time we have left.
Thankfully, the God of love specializes in miracles. 
No doubt part of that miraculous movement will involve inspired leadership capable of dealing with ignorance and apathy.
