2016 – What to do?
The power of a determined human being who is not willing to give up is truly inspirational.
I have been inspired over the years by many friends, business and political activists with causes bigger than life.
The question at this turning point in time and a year away from the next Presidential Elections of 2016 is do the people of this nation have the determination, drive, and willpower to seize the reins of power and return the country to its place as a beacon of light and inspiration for the world? A nation that is powerful, yet benign? Do we have the courage to stand up for what we believe or will we continue to cower in the corner and hope no one sees us?
One way to develop courage is to consider what will happen if we fail to act. When considering action, I always do a best/worst analysis. I ask the following four questions about the prospective action:
1. What’s the best thing that happens if I do it?
2. What’s the worst thing that happens if I do it?
3. What’s the best thing that happens if I don’t do it?
4. What’s the worst thing that happens if I don’t do it?
Let’s consider these questions with respect to being courageous enough to go against the flow of political correctness and demand our constitutional rights.
What is the best thing that happens if we refuse to abide by the dictates of political correctness?
I believe that we could return to a nation that truly cherishes freedom of speech and freedom of expression. A nation where people are unafraid to express their opinions and beliefs and are eager to engage in intelligent and constructive conversations about their differences. A nation where we value even those with whom we disagree and work together to accomplish common goals.
What is the worst thing that happens if we oppose political correctness?
I believe that every attempt would be made to silence those who oppose political correctness and to make examples of them to discourage others. World history demonstrates that it is very difficult to eradicate every single fighter for freedom.
What is the best thing that happens if we don’t oppose political correctness?
I believe we would achieve a very homogeneous society with little original thought but complete harmony.
What is the worst thing that happens if we don’t oppose political correctness?
I believe we could see a dictatorship with brutal domination of any individual or group that opposes the leadership. The worst things that can happen if we don’t take action are considerably worse than the worst things that can happen if we do take action. Therefore, we must take action.
There is no freedom without bravery.
As a society, are we free if we tolerate intimidation by government agencies like the IRS?
Are we free if we allow the NSA to illegally search and seize our private documents without cause?
Are we free if we allow the purveyors of political correctness to muzzle our thoughts and our speech?
Are we free if we allow ourselves to be forcibly placed into an ill-conceived health care system that controls the most important thing we have: our lives?
Are we free when our government controls every aspect of the business community and stifles the entrepreneurial spirit that built America?
We are in the process of relinquishing the freedom that is America. Are we really brave if we allow all these things to occur and keep silent because we’re afraid that someone will call us a name?
Our nation was formed by men and women of tremendous courage.
Think about it all before you cast your vote coming next year. Do your homework right. Recognize facts from fiction and don’t be swayed by the media.
