Rallying the Base

As the midterm elections approach, we need to energize our base.  We need to get people out to vote and take back the senate.

But it is really hard to get a lot of community organizing going, or protests organized or rallies going when your battle cry is:

“Leave me alone.”

That is the problem with this silent majority.  It has been silent too long.  Conservatives just want to be left alone to live in peace, raise their kids and play Jenga.

Meanwhile, liberals (for some reason) believe that their way is the only way and anyone who disagrees with them doesn’t really deserve to, like, breathe.

Any one who doesn’t believe completely in every liberal ideal is called really terrible things that would be inappropriate to call a baby seal.  So, conservatives are marginalized and are really being attacked.

While we have remained silent, everything that we hold dear is being taken from us.

Conservatives are at home going, “Ha, ha, you didn’t say it in the form of a question, you lose!”

Republican-PartyLiberals are out there signing up people for Obamacare.

Conservatives are home field dressing a deer.

Liberals are out there organizing communities against eating meat.

Some conservatives are at church.

Liberals are using tax money to remove all references to God in every possible forum all over the country.

See, here is the thing, conservatives really truly don’t care about anyone’s alternative lifestyles.  Seriously, we just don’t care.  It’s not that we don’t care about the people, it’s that we don’t care about how they are living their lives, it doesn’t have anything to do with us.

So someone is gay.  Great.  We don’t care, it doesn’t bother us, it doesn’t have anything to do with us.

So someone loves the environment, great, so do I.  I am going to use it.

So someone doesn’t eat meat, great, more for me.

Conservatives just don’t care about other people’s private lives and choices.

We don’t hate liberals, we just don’t care because it is not our business and someone is going to get voted off Dancing with the Stars.

So atheists hate Christianity, fine.  But, why can’t I worship the way that I want?  And for that matter, why do we have to re-write the history of our country?

Conservatives care about the economy, jobs, taxes, small businesses, our energy policy, our military.

Conservatives, mark your calendars, get out there and vote.
