"For the most part, they control education across the board, control media across the board, and control entertainment across the board. Conservatives and those who believe in traditional values have inexplicably ceded all those areas to the left.”

When I asked if there was any hope left for our nation and for those who still believe in traditional values, he slowly nodded his head, and said:

“Some. Barack Obama and his devotion to his far-left ideology has frightened a great many Americans. Especially moderates and independents. It turns out that real-world experience does matter.

“If the Republicans -- as equally corrupt as the Democrats -- can put forth a candidate who honestly puts the needs of our nation before his or her own, they may have a chance. This is not complicated. The vast majority of Americans do believe in God and don’t believe the word ‘Christian’ should be used as a punch-line by the left.

“The vast majority believe we are a sovereign nation with borders that must be protected. That the heroic young men and women of our military should never be used as political pawns. That we need limited government. That taxes must be lower to fuel job creation.

“That far-left media propagandists like Maureen Dowd, Jon Meacham, Evan Thomas, Keith Olbermann and others must be held accountable for unethically disseminating lies for the left. That the rule of law must be enforced and that the 2nd Amendment must be protected. If that’s the actual foundation the next Republican candidate stands upon, then he or she could win.”

“And if not?,” I asked.

“Simple,” he answered. “Like Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and Chavez, the far-left will work overtime to ensure the United States of traditional values is systematically stripped from our history books as if it never existed.”

Game on.
