This is written to all Americans who love their country and want to stop this path to ruin….

 

Dear L. J.,

The year’s coming to a close and finally, just for a few days, maybe even just a few hours, it’s quiet around here. There are some staff still here, and will be working through Christmas, and through New Year’s Eve. Others are wrapping up and preparing to leave for the holidays. Some have already gone. This is good. They work exhausting hours and they need this time off, especially those with families. My office door’s closed; email’s shut down; the phones are off. There are no copywriters, no editors for this letter.

I am thinking about our consequential times. We are at a seriously critical and equally dangerous moment. Next year we will vote as a nation to embrace socialism, or to reject it. I take comfort in the confidence I (still) have that America will reject socialism if presented with a referendum on that form of governance. But if the forces of the Left are successful in muddying the waters, as they were in 2008, the transformational moment that was promised will be reached. And if these Leftists are given another four years with the keys to the kingdom, surely the kingdom will fail.

How many Americans see this? Not enough, unfortunately. It’s never enough. It’s always in the hands of the few to lead the rest.

Last Sunday President Obama was making his umpteenth visit to “CBS 60 Minutes,” that program that regularly unleashes pure vitriol on conservatives, then rolls out the red carpet for the left. It was a typical love-fest, but this time Obama made what is probably the most outrageous statement of his entire presidency.

Obama declared his socialist administration to be at least the fourth greatest presidency in history.

“I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln —in terms of what we’ve gotten done.”

Obama is more accomplished than… George Washington? Thomas Jefferson? John Adams? Teddy Roosevelt? Ronald Reagan? Obama is greater than all of them? What sheer arrogance! This is a man blinded by power. But here is what should really frighten us: He is destroying the America we know – there is no question of that — and that is an accomplishment in his eyes, so great an accomplishment that he sees himself as at least the fourth-greatest president in history for doing so.

This is a dangerous man.

How many Americans see this? In the case of the “60 Minutes” audience – not a one. CBS purposely edited out that sentence. The single most striking moment in the interview – and CBS deliberately took it out.

The leftists in the “news” media will say and do everything, including spiking the news, to promote this man’s re-election. By the same token, they will say and do everything, including acts of character assassination, against anyone who dares challenge his rule.

This is what we’re up against. Next year will be the most important election since 1860, and the second most important in our history, and the national “news” media are absolutely committed to getting Barack Obama re-elected so he can complete the transformation of America.

The America you and I know – the most radical and successful experiment in human history, a nation built and governed of, by and for the people – will be no more. Instead we will join the community of socialist states the world over.

The America you and I know – a nation of laws, and limited government powers specifically enumerated in the Constitution, under God – will be no more. Government will wield authority over the individual on a level never before imagined, not in the United States, not in our worst nightmare.

The America you and I know – the nation with the greatest economic engine in the history of man, an economic experiment based on the principles of personal freedom and personal responsibility, with the ability to succeed, and the ability to fail – will be no more. Instead it will be the collective. There was a reason Obama refused to condemn Occupied Wall Street revolutionaries.

The America you and I know – a nation bursting with pride with her exceptionalism, the knowledge we are unique not just in the world, but in history, the beacon of liberty, the leader of the Free World, the savior of freedom in two world wars, the Cold War and every other major struggle since – that America will disappear. We will instead atone, atone for all the sins committed against the world. Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright will be triumphant.

No, L. J., this will not happen. You and I will not allow it. And I am equally convinced that if the American people understand the stakes, they will not stand for it either.

But this is where the few must sacrifice, and lead the many, again. You, L. J., you must be a leader.

Much is written about the upcoming elections being the most important elections since 1860. But there was an even greater decision we made as a nation before that. Before we were even a nation.

It was almost exactly 235 years ago today. George Washington’s Continental Army was on the verge of obliteration. With one defeat after another at the hands of the British and their Hessian allies, Washington’s army was driven from New York, then New Jersey, into Pennsylvania. Washington’s army of almost 20,000 proud volunteers had dwindled down to barely 2,000 stragglers, hungry, cold, discouraged, beaten.

On December 23, Thomas Paine wrote “The American Crisis,” and as his men sat on the banks of the frozen Delaware River, Washington ordered it read.

These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of the country…Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have the consolation wit us that, the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph…

Let it be told to the future world that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive, that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet and repulse it…”

And that is just what they did. In one final, desperate act, Washington and his extraordinary patriots crossed the ice-filled river on Christmas day, surprised and defeated the feared Hessians at Trenton and ten days later defeated a far greater British army at Princeton – and the United States of America, in her infancy, survived.

This is now our winter and now we must decide. Do we pick up our muskets and wade into the cold, icy waters, prepared to give our lives and our fortune for liberty – or return to the safety and warmth of our homes, forsaking freedom?

We are not sunshine soldiers. We are called to be Washington’s patriots again. I will make this vow to you: If you continue your activism with us at ForAmerica, we will defeat the forces of tyranny – decisively. Nothing will stop us. This organization, your organization, ForAmerica, will be the beacon of freedom in 2012. We will do it in honor of every one of George Washington’s Continental Army who gave his life to create this wondrous nation, and honor every man and woman who has made the ultimate sacrifice defending her since. We will do it for our progeny and generations to come. History will record that at the moment when it seemed America’s sunset was at hand, a new birth exploded, taking this nation to even greater heights.

Could it happen? Of course it could! We are Americans.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, not just for joining the ForAmerica army, but for your commitment to freedom. I say this with fervor: You truly are an American patriot. George Washington would be proud of you. What an honor it is for me to have your support.

Onward, to victory.

All my best,

L. Brent Bozell III

Founder and Chairman, ForAmerica.
