People ask me why RR takes such a “militant” political position as we teach families sustainability and help them to build affordable, energy efficient homes.
“Can’t you just teach housing and NOT politics?” they ask.
The simple answer is “NO.”
The REASON that we’re pushing so hard, the reason that we’re working virtually around the clock is that we see the political environment in America changing…
… and not in the favor of American middle class families, who are the very SPINE of America. It’s our values, our sweat and our toil against all odds that have made this great nation strong. It is the compromising of those values that built this country that now undermine it. There are those who are actively trying to legislate us out of existence.
We see acts to strip civil liberties from Americans as “theft of Constitutionally granted and supported rights.” We see continued (even escalated) governmental intrusions into American lives as being “beyond the defined bounds of Government” based on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
We see the fabric of America being torn into tatters by those who seek personal profit and not progress for all Americans.We live in a land where there are more people on Government programs than there are employed, self-sustaining people. The economics are obvious. It cannot be sustained.
This means change. And, we’ll point out that change is never easy nor predictable.
We counsel our families to achieve a level of sustainability that will insure that they not only survive difficult times, but SURPASS it.
People like Barbara Walters think Obama is the “messiah.” It’s those left-leaning journalists (whom we suspect have no clue about what it’s like to live in the “REAL AMERICA”) who keep spewing their “kool aid” about how great things are… thanks to Barack. Walters’ recent admission on Piers Morgan’s cable trainwreck about how Obama is revered as a “messiah” can only reinforce the notion among conservatives and gun owners that America’s mainstream press is fundamentally shallow, reckless and incredibly stupid. This further supports our belief that the media cannot and will not report healthcare or 2nd Amendment issues (or any other issues) fairly or accurately.
To survive difficult times, you must understand them and their nature. It is only in their recognition that you become empowered to survive these events. We strive to insure that our families survive this and any following administration.
We’re talking about our children’s future…
