Wanted: A Rendezvous with Destiny

September 25, 2010 07:15

“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.” – Ronald W. Reagan, 1964

So, now the Republican Leaders have published a Manifesto and taking the Pledge. What is it and how shall we receive it? For those who have not seen it or heard of it, my “activist patriot” sister has sent me a reliable “draft copy” of the document here:

What specifically do you intend to do to restore “the Constitution and the Tenth Amendment?”

What is a “Robust Defense?” Does this mean an expansion of Forces? Our current force is reportedly broken: overextended, overworked, underpaid and ill-equipped, according to many on-the-ground observers.

What specifically do you mean by “Wider Liberty?” Will you end political correctness, Social Engineering within the Military, Respect and protect Life at all stages of development?

What do you mean by “Transparency?” To Obama this meant cramming 2000 page bills down the throats of Americans without open debate, discussion, or revision.

Does “Careful in Stewardship” simply mean not spending Other Peoples’ Money” as fast as Obama has?

Do you mean “Honesty in Dealings” as in the way you have treated Sharron Angle, Joe Miller, Rand Paul, and Christine O’Donnell, when you failed to enthusiastically endorse a primary winner in places where your establishment endorsed candidate [often a RINO] did not win?

Do you, Republican Party, really mean to make the case for a Second Reagan Revolution? If not, why not? If not now, when?

The clarity of Reagan is striking. He did not see his message as a single election issue. He saw this as a generational struggle, a “rendezvous with destiny.”

Until the current Republican Leadership learns to get it right and listen to the Tea Party and other traditionally minded groups, their pledges will remain as inscrutable as tea leaves and as meaningful as the promises inside a fortune cookie.
