One by one the progressive mayors and college presidents across the south have been chipping away at not only our heritage, but the honor of fallen heroes, many of who died in the great 'War for Southern Independence'. Actually those who would tear down these Confederate Monuments could care less about the statues themselves. It's not about these pieces of stone and bronze stained by the years. It's a power struggle between progressives and conservatives. I thought this was settled, a least for a short while with the election of Donald Trump. I was wrong, and now I fear we are on the losing side once again. Some of us are fighting back. The purpose of this blog is to inform you there is hope. We are attempting to raise funds to erect plaques honoring our fallen Confederate boys in gray. Plaques that will grace the town squares of small towns in the South where they will be welcome. Towns where the voters still have some common sense, unlike those idiots in the large cities and those poor lost young people in our universities. All denotations will be appreciated with the lion's share going to preserve the memory of those who fought and died in that great conflict.

The American Right: Defenders of the Revolution

The American conservative is NOT an extremist, but rather the defender of the status quo. The defender of principles laid down by the founders in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. He is the modern day patriot who champions the values laid down in the Bill of Rights. He is often portrayed by those on the left as a radical extremist when nothing could be farther from the truth, for it is they who are the extremists. They are the ones seeking to overturn the principles of the first American patriots. It is they who are unpatriotic, because they are the one fighting against the ideals of the early patriots.

Many say that all Americans are patriotic, but that is not true and has never been true. Just as there were many Americans who opposed the first patriots, there are many that oppose today's patriots and these unpatriotic Americans are found on the American left. The left in this country is seeking to overturn the American Revolution and therefore they can be rightly called counter-revolutionaries. They will a times, when challenged, wrap themselves in the flag and claim to be great patriots. This is a lie and goes against their very goal----the overturning of the Constitution as written.

There are times when I wear the badge of extremist proudly, such as when the term is hurled by those on the American left, but when the term is used by those supposedly in the main stream I recoil for I know it is not I who is the extremist; but rather those who seek to radically change this country by overturning the principles laid down in the Constitution. True, the early patriots were extremist, but when the revolution was over and the victory won these patriots became the defenders of the new status quo. Today's patriots follow their lead by continuing to defend their hard fought gains and those who oppose today's patriots are the unpatriotic forces on the American left. And it is these people who seek to re-write or destroy the Constitution and when dealing with them there can be no retreat and certainly no compromise.
