Glenn: Before you stand up, you MUST know what you are standing up for

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Four things to commit: 1) Commit to a higher calling – Read the Pledge of Nonviolence HERE; 2) No finger pointing; 3) Personal Responsibility – Read the Declaration of Rights & Responsibilities HERE and MLK’s Commitment Card HERE; 4) Be hopeful.

For weeks, Glenn has been promising that this week of shows would mark a change in GBTV from a network to a verb. He would be taking action and asking the audience to join him.

Glenn explained that you have to commit to a code and decide what you believe. You have to activate not only yourself, but those around you into taking action. You must live it and “mean what you say and say what you mean”. If you believe in small government and also want to help others, you must be the stop gap. And you must create a culture that inspires and fosters decency and goodness.

And tonight was step one – commit.

To begin the show, Glenn reminded listeners what he told them when he first announced GBTV – that the network was not a place for passiveness but a place for people to be active and involved. “GBTV is a verb” he said back in 2011.

Why the need for the shift? Even though Glenn said that he and his company and his fans are all moving at lighting speed, progressives have a 100 year advantage.

“We’re moving at light speed but everything that goes into repairing all the damage done by progressives in the last 100 years is daunting to say the least,” he said.

“Tonight we begin to roll out what i’ve been asking you to be patient for, but the first 4 steps are really important. We’re going to unleash the verb GBTV was designed to be,” he explained.

“Let me tell you a little story. I teach teenagers at sunday school. We were doing a study and I asked them, ‘so what does this tell us?’ It was scripture about one of the prophets standing up and the people rejecting and then killing him. They said ‘it means you have to stand up for what you believe in’ . I said no, you are missing a step. Before you can stand up for what you believe in, you have to know what you believe in and then still before just knowing it , you have to make a declaration,” Glenn said. “You have to commit.”

“I want you to know with a humble and contrite spirit that I’m sometimes embarassed to meet viewers and listeners because some are doing so much more than I am in your public your professoinal and your personal lives. And I am no different than you. I have members of my own family that are not as committed as you. I have the same family issues that you have. Some don’t believe me, some do. I’m bluffing on how to raise my kids – so im asking if you are committed because you know what, we’re making this up. Were doing things that no ones ever done before in history. So when I ask you these questions I’m asking this of myself too,” he said.

“Are you really committed to restoring america to it’s founding principles? Are you really committed to reducing the size and power of an out of control federal government?”

“If Romney happens to beat Obama, will you exhale and say ‘Whew, that was close!’ and then retire back to the couch for doritos and Dancing with the Stars?”

“This is bigger than Obama. He’s stepped on the accelerator and is driving towards the cliff at alarming speeds, but the problem existed long before obama got into office. Obama is, believe it or not, what I’m worried about the least. Because if we don’t fix ourselves first, it doesn’t matter who is  president, we’ll eventually find ourselves in the same exact predicament.”

Later, Glenn discussed the theory of the 10% – that 10% lead in one direction. Some the right way, some the wrong – with 80% in the middle.

“This audience is not the 80%. Youre the 10%. Will you commit to lead and  be the 10% who lead the 80% to the right exit?” he asked.

“If you think you aren’t qualified to lead, you are wrong. The true mark of a leader is not what money or power they have, but rather what they don’t have. Ego. Arrogance. Self interest. Leaders have a heart dedicated to servitude, and a calling greater than oneself. You must be that 10% because there will be another 10% leading people in another direction and that direction will be revolution,” he said.

But how do you get into action? Glenn aid out four steps for people to take action and commit: 1) Commit to a higher calling – Read the Pledge of Nonviolence HERE; 2) No finger pointing; 3) Personal Responsibility – Read the Declaration of Rights & Responsibilities HERE and MLK’s Commitment Card HERE; 4) Be hopeful.

A big focus of the opening monologue was Martin Luther King, Jr. and the movement he led in the sixties. To explain further, Glenn had his niece Alveda King join him in Dallas:

    King Koheleth says it well in Ecclesiastes,

    whether you are good or wicked, all will be judged.

    Without wickedness there is no good.
    Without good there is no wickedness.

    Be who you are suppose to be, the ones who ride the fence are only fooling themselves.
    Be true to yourself and who you truly are, the ones who battle themselves inside, destroy the world. Make a decision, stand by it, good or wicked? All is vanity.

    Question?

    Was Hitler true to himself by being wicked? If he was meant to be part of history in that fashion, and you are a G-d believer, did he do what was expected of him? Will he be judged differently because he did what he was put here to do? Just a out of the box question.

    When Alveta King was talking on the show tonight, something hit me squarely in the face.  Those who say they are working to fix America (by activism, working for candidates, blogging, etc.) can’t fix America in that way.  Ask your self, “what IS America?”  Some land? Government agencies?  Stores and factories?  I say America is its PEOPLE.  To fix America, we must fix its people (the hard part) - more precisely, we must fix ourselves.  The rest is easy.

    My ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War in the Pennsylvania Militia.  They were Scots/Irish farmers who placed everything, including their lives, on the line.   They fought bravely and fearlessly for freedom; not only for themselves, but also for those who would come after them.  They saw us beyond their horizon. They have done their work and now sleep. 
    We can, we must,  pick up the torch they so bravely lit.  Let us carry the torch with faith, bravely into the future.  May those who come after us remember us as faithful, brave & fearless Patriots, who also placed it all on the line for them.  Stand up Patriots one and all. The future is in our hands.

    ‘What God has joined together, let no man put asunder’ meant for marriage but true in uniting all of us to fight for what we believe in. Brothers and Sisters united to fight for what we believe in.  I salute Donna Cullard for her eloquent words. We are one.  We are united.  And we are brave.Stand strong and fight the good fight. Our children are the price if we allow things to continue as they are.  In ten or more years they may be working for the Chinese.  They may not know freedom.  They may not be able to have families and buy homes. They may be in a statist system that controls everything they do.  This isn’t fantasy.  This isn’t sensationalism.  This is the reality of the direction our country is going to.

    I will not jump from frying pan into the fire.  I will not pledge NOT to fight evil here in this (my) country.  I don’t ‘join’ to be part of a group.  I am a PATRIOT.  I am an individual.  I am a descendent of Patrick Henry.  Liberty or Death is in our genes.  I have been fighting for 6 years, actually before, more since 2001 and then 2006.  I don’t want ANYONE telling me what to do, how to do it.  I’ll help.  I’ll listen.  I’ll support, but I sign nothing.  There is serious evil afoot.  I agree not to start fights, but I won’t back away from one and I’ll finish one.  I’ve had to fight hard. MLK was correct to tell his followers to take the peaceful route, but Peaceful would not have stopped the Brits with Geo. Washington.  Otherwise.  I think it’s a great idea. I’ve owned my own co. for years.  I have many entrepreneural co’s and tasks I do and try to help as many people as possible share the $.  I’ve had it up to here with people trying to tell me how to live, what to eat, etc.  So I’m for you, but not in lock-step with anyone.  Tread lightly on the “all being alike”  America is great because we are ALL DIFFERENT but we love FREEDOM.  I will fight like a tiger to preserve that.   :)

    Patty, Fighting is left as a last resort when all else fails. I don’t think Glen’s intent is for us to be a bunch of pansies in signing the contract.  I believe what is meant is to live life as Jesus did as that is how Jesus expects us to. Love your enemies as much as you love yourself. Keep thoughts and words positive so you are not feeding and falling into Satan’s trap. If war comes to where we need to protect ourselves and our freedom.. than that is a different matter and God will lead us if that be the case. When you stand up to what is right and someone belittles you, or calls you names trying to get you to react and do wrong by a violent act or spewing out curse words…. turn the cheek and be kind to them instead. Don’t cave into violence. Somewhere in the bible it says don’t fight evil with evil. I forget exactly where that is in the bible off hand, but I just read it a few weeks back. Makes sense to me. Most often one cannot attack someone who is being kind. And who knows, you might have the opportunity to turn that lost soul around and get him/her on your side, and more importantly save a soul for God in the process, of which you will be recognized and rewarded for.  Think about it and then you will hopefully see the point Glen is trying to make.
    Wish you well!

    Robert,

    We must remember that we are NOT here to serve ourselves, but are here to serve our Lord. He is in control; not us. Only through prayer, obiedience, belief and faith we can ask God to make a mountain move and he will move it for us.

    When glenn teaches in Sunday school does he teach them about the Mormon founders promoting  polygamy?  This wasn’t thousands of years ago, it founding was less than two hundred years ago.  The U.S. had already completed the Revolutionary and War of 1812.  The Constitution had been ratified, but polygamy for Mormons was religious law.

    Unfortunately, in order to fix America, we must educate the people. For many years, the Socialists have been using our Department of Education to preach Socialism to our kids. Instead of teaching them the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they have been teaching our kids that they have the RIGHT to be taken care of by the government for life, even if they do NOTHING to contribute to the welfare of the Nation as a whole.

    We must change this attitude in our schools FIRST. This means that we must make our kids teachers ACCOUNTABLE for the messages they pass on to our kids.  WE THE PEOPLE must stay on top of the education of our own kids and make sure that, in order to make this country strong and proud again, they must CONTRIBUTE through their efforts to accomplish that goal.

    FREEDOM IS NOT FREE. A lack of strength and persistance does NOT make our country greater. It makes us weaker and subject to attack from many of the member States of the United Nations who are moving to become the one world government.  We must not allow that to happen.

    First time to this rather interesting forum.  I can’t help but notice the frequent cries for freedom, which in itself is good, I suppose.  However, I wonder if the calls for freedom and liberty in abstraction are not more problematic than they might appear on the ground, so to speak.  I would be interested to know what some of you mean by ‘freedom’ as such.  It is not at all obvious what it might actually mean; and I’m sure the more you try to put your finger on it–the more you begin to pull it from its point of rhetorical abstraction–the murkier its meaning becomes.  In short, then (to use Dworkin’s saying), “Liberty or freedom of what?”  This isn’t meant to be polemical.  I’m only interested in pointing out that if each has their concept of liberty, then they are bound to conflict on innumerable levels.  How is this to be reconciled?

    I just posted this on the BLAZE …what FREEDOM?  TO think my own thoughts, take my own chances, take my own lumps when I fail or Victory when I succeed.  To be kind and thoughtful as I hope others will be to me, but not feel I have to be like anyone else.  GOD made us all for a purpose known only to Him (hence individual finger prints!)  No one else is like me,  I’m not like anyone else.  We all have a role to play.  We can certainly have common goals ! But we may all climb that mountain our on way.    So this in answer to PENN GILLETTE:

    THINKABOUTTHIS: There is only one reason for THIS life: To
    decide if we are trustworthy. IF we’ll make the right decision and
    choose God. What would seem to outsiders as terribly binding and
    enslaving is actually the most FREEING and Fabulous existing there is.
    To know your Creator Loves you and that you are learning how to be the
    best for His Highest. Silly people throughout the ages have used
    Religion, Politics to try to make OTHERS do what they wanted (when they
    couldn’t begin to control themselves). IF there was something better in
    the Universe than GOD or something more meaningful I’d want that…but
    Iearned decades ago that HE was the very TOP of the FOOD CHAIN and I
    have tried to learn and understand (and become albeit failing daily) to
    be MY UTMOST for HIS HIGHEST (a fabulous daily prayer book now in it’s
    second Century of publication). True Faith is total Freedom, Penn.
    You should try that book. You are obviously seeking (maybe don’t know
    it) !

     I totally understand the “TURN THE OTHER CHEEK” and don’t think it’s weakness but superior strength…however…we already ARE under vicious attack.  We are this close to being under a dictatorship.  Like the Muslims these Communists/Socialists/Marxists don’t want to be our friends no matter what we do.  They either want to kill us or enslave us.  They are being used by people like Soros to ruin America so he can scoff it up 10 c on the dollar.  I tolerate young Liberals, we were all liberal then, but I so dislike old broads who parrot known lies…who have -0- integrity about making up facts to try to prove their point. There are too many of us awake now to allow them to continue the
    charade.   But of course, we want ALL AMERICANS to support one another and others in the world.  WE have made a great mistake by not requiring ENGLISH and AMERICAN HISTORY and we were asleep at the switch when Muslim Extremist and others co-opted our very TEXT BOOKS etc.   I believe that RIGHTEOUSNESS flattens evil.  GOOD overcomes evil.   Therefore I fight with the TRUTH.  I would never make up “faux facts” to try to prove my point, nor would I ever “TAKE THE ADVANTAGE JUST BECAUSE I HAD IT” nor would I shoot innocent people etc. etc. etc.  But these people attacking us have already gone over to the devil,  I actually pray for the unknowing Muslims, but I will flatten those who would try to hurt our Nation, our people, our Freedom.
    Muslims living in the USA have been very surprised that the “Satan” that is USA is so different than they were taught.   They almost had us.  By standing up they know they can’t get us and we will never tolerate this attempt under this horrible president to take over America.   Call that whatever you will.   I will help anyone who needs it.  I will stop anyone trying to hurt us.   (or die)  That’s it!! :)

    Beck needs to stop lying and fix himself first.  He is a sick, Romney lover.  He is a happy partner of Romney.  It is not only Obama that is the problem, but Romney and his friends that include McCain and other friends of Beck.  But Beck doesn’t want to admit the problem, because he is part of the problem.

    Welcome, Forms.  I think, if you’re like me, you start to do some study and research.  I enrolled in a Master’s degree program in Political Economy, because I knew there was something WRONG with where we were heading but wanted to understand what the solution really was, since it was clear to me our politicians for the most part didn’t have a clue.  I’ve been trying to study what our Founders studied so I could understand what freedom and liberty really mean.  I’ve read Smith, and Keynes, and Marx, and  Rothbard, and Hayek, and Bastiat, and Plato, and Aristotle, and Locke, and Machiavelli, and Kant and Rousseau….if anyone wants a better understanding of liberty and rights and law I highly recommend such a course of study.  They are questions (and this is exactly what Glenn is saying) that each of us needs to ask for ourselves, and identify just what we really DO believe about freedom and liberty, and how we fight for that.

    Fools mock, but they shall mourn.  You know what?  I’m so SICK of the mockers, and the critics, and the bullies, and the hypocrites, and the liars who think they are running the show today.  It’s so easy, and so “safe” in this “liberal” political climate, to hate, and to persecute others who don’t believe like you do, and to threaten, and try to intimidate and marginalize and shut people up.  Mock Glenn, go ahead.  Make fun of people like Sarah Palin, or Rick Santorum, or me, because I believe in God and traditional values, and American exceptionalism.  Laugh at me because I “cling to my guns and my religion” and I’m a member of the Tea Party and my neck is redder than yours and I drive a beat up pickup and can still cry at the national anthem.  Make death threats against me and others because we support God’s definition of marriage, and stand for the rights of the unborn.  I’m done.  You want war?  You got it.  This will not be a physical war, for the most part, though I believe that will be coming as well – it is a war of ideologies, of culture, of words – you think we’re down for the count?  Game on.

    Liberty and Freedom have clear definitions.  They aren’t antithetical:  Of and being of direct and unequivocal opposition.They are clear in meaning. We all aspire to be free.  And I support Glenn Beck in his effort to protect our freedoms.  You might also look at the Bill Of Rights and The Constitution for our Freedoms that are protected.  Both explicitly outline our freedoms and rights.  These are legally defined. Beyond those protected rights – which are being threatened – most of us would prefer to conduct our lives the way we want individually – without someone telling us what we can think, what we can eat, and much more. Otherwise, at 30, 40, 50, 60, 70  – and this is happening daily – we would be told by a parental figure – an authority – that we have to behave their way.  Do you want that?  Or did you move out so you can run your own life?

    Meg– Sorry, jen where have you been? There are two sides or forces working in the world today. One is Good, and the other is Evil. You are wrong as you can be, Beck is on the Good side, and to me Obama is on the Evil side. Which side do you claim to be on? Either one?

    Another thought for Glenn Beck and for all of his followers.  We assume when we tell someone something, or show them a figure, or display numbers or a chart, that they are interpreted the same way you or I do.  That’s not the case.  A picture tells a thousand stories… but the story may be different individually.  Think about the different versions supplied by witnesses in a car accident.  So, be very clear in what you are saying – paint the picture for them, use examples and analogies that someone might relate to.  The best in advertising will vividly show what they are saying.  Do not assume someone knows the definition of a word or term.  Give an example.  In a day and age when texting is used more and more, a lot of the English language is forgotten.  Also, consider using texting to talk to those who are used to that more than any other media. There are applications available to send texts, that someone opts into, to get a message out. We need to relate to everyone.  Churches are a good venue too.  Reach out.

    Look up words. You’d be astounded by their clear definition, and their definition may astound you!  The dictionary is an incredible tool for communicating and great for those of us who are really curious.  Right now there are words and terms that are misused and twisted by media and politicians.  Thomas Sowell just had an article about it.  I had posted a comment recently after reading an article that said Congress was debating whether to give tax credits to illegals.  I had to read it several times.  My brain tried to turn inside out.  Think about it.  Illegals.  Getting tax credits.  I asked, is there some new definition of illegal I’m not aware of? In Sowell’s , he pointed out how Autism has been redefined by Government and politicians, poor has been redefined.  These are things we are bombarded with daily.  Most probably goes right over our heads.  And yet, these are transforming our society, costing tax payers, and defining our future. It really is a time to be more alert, to pay more attention, to ask questions. Things are taking place at such a fast clip, it’s easy to miss it.  Take the actions Glenn suggests – and I would also challenge all of us to pay more attention, ask what’s going on, and take a stand.

    lol well if the nuts who call Glen names would do what he says would sure make all of our lives a little easier. If they would read and study the bible and then be obiedient following the word, we would not be where we are today with our freedoms being threatened while living in fear from the high crime rates due to lost souls who have no God in their lives. No morals, no values. Me me me mentality. (selfish self centerness: which stems from a liberal concept) Instead of locking ourselves in our homes, we would be able to leave our doors unlocked like we used to not so long ago. We didn’t even lock the car. We could park it in the driveway and not think twice about locking it, because we knew it would still be there come morning. I sure miss those days! Thanks for the response. Take care.

    Meg– Very well written. You make a lot of sense, and so does Glenn. The ” nuts,” who call Glenn names should do what he says. Do your own research, don’t believe me. It has turned out that Glenn has been right at 100% right on what he says. I trust him, because he does the research. Not many others do. Link to comment

    Patty,
    I appreciate your spiritedness. I am not disagreeing with you. I am just stating a different point of view as to what I think Glen is trying to do with the contract. It is an honorable contract that has nothing to do with the battle of war. I am sure that all of us who are patriotic will step up to the plate and defend if need be. I know I will. But I think the contract is intended to be more for when one protests, marches and gathers to object the opposition like in the days of MLK protesting. To refrain from name calling, spewing negative words that just gives Satan delight, refrain from violent confrontations even when opposition trys to get your goat by egging you. Hold your ground with your head held high, HUGE smile on your face and don’t cave into Satan’s tricks. That is basically what the contract is all about. Nothing to do when one is called to defend in battle as in war to defend our country and our freedom. Wishing you well. Take care.

    I totally understand the “TURN THE OTHER CHEEK” and don’t think it’s weakness but superior strength…however…we already ARE under vicious attack.  We are this close to being under a dictatorship.  Like the Muslims these Communists/Socialists/Marxists don’t want to be our friends no matter what we do.  They either want to kill us or enslave us.  They are being used by people like Soros to ruin America so he can scoff it up 10 c on the dollar.  I tolerate young Liberals, we were all liberal then, but I so dislike old broads who parrot known lies…who have -0- integrity about making up facts to try to prove their point. There are too many of us awake now to allow them to continue the charade.   But of course, we want ALL AMERICANS to support one another and others in the world.  WE have made a great mistake by not requiring ENGLISH and AMERICAN HISTORY and we were asleep at the switch when Muslim Extremist and others co-opted our very TEXT BOOKS etc.   I believe that RIGHTEOUSNESS flattens evil.  GOOD overcomes evil.   Therefore I fight with the TRUTH.  I would never make up “faux facts” to try to prove my point, nor would I ever “TAKE THE ADVANTAGE JUST BECAUSE I HAD IT” nor would I shoot innocent people etc. etc. etc.  But these people attacking us have already gone over to the devil,  I actually pray for the unknowing Muslims, but I will flatten those who would try to hurt our Nation, our people, our Freedom. Muslims living in the USA have been very surprised that the “Satan” that is USA is so different than they were taught.   They almost had us.  By standing up they know they can’t get us and we will never tolerate this attempt under this horrible president to take over America.   Call that whatever you will.   I will help anyone who needs it.  I will stop anyone trying to hurt us.   (or die)  That’s it!! :) Link to comment

    You need to read the article above this posting where he talks about committing You will find it in the following paragraph and it is located just above the last video clip.
    “But how do you get into action? Glenn aid out four steps for people to take action and commit: 1) Commit to a higher calling – Read the Pledge of Nonviolence HERE; 2) No finger pointing; 3) Personal Responsibility – Read the Declaration of Rights & Responsibilities HERE and MLK’s Commitment Card HERE; 4) Be hopeful.” and click on the ‘HERE” that is underlined and in a different font color. Each one opens and you must read each one completely before you sign it. 
    Hope this helps you. =)

    Politics and religion are not supposed to be mixed in the U.S.
    glenn beck says he teaches Sunday school. glenn beck also claims he a historian and that today’s generation needs to read, understand and go back to its origins.
    This can only lead to the fact that glenn should be, at the least, informing young Mormons of their polygamist past!

  • SoThere

    You’re an idiot. You have no idea what Glenn Beck teaches in his Sunday school classes.

    Harry Reid should resign from the Senate because he can’t separate his religion from his politics and he’s a Polygamist.

    Take your garbage and hatred somewhere else you sick STD infected moron.

    I love it.
    First glenn beck tells his lemmings to fight or commit for freedom to protect their rights…
    Then the propaganda prince tells his lemmings “how” to commit properly in order to follow his beliefs.
    I am constantly shocked at the naive and ignorance of glenn beck’s lemmings who follow this historically successful path of a cult leader?!

    Joe et Al,
    We must encourage people of faith to become involved in the civic arena, through
    prayer and direct involvement.  In my State (also Glenn’s former State) only 20% of Church going members vote.  They Shake their Bibles on Sunday from 10:00-11:00 and the other 167 hours of the week they DO NOTHING except complain……..
    “…Therefore to him who knows to do good, and does not do it, to him it is a sin…”    JAMES 4:17 As President and gospel minister; James A.
    Garfield stated,
    As President and gospel minister; James A.
    Garfield stated,

    “Now, more than ever, the
    people are responsible for the character of their Congress.

    If that body be ignorant,
    reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance,
    recklessness, and corruption. 

    If it be intelligent, brave, and
    pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in
    the national legislature. . . .

    [I]f the next centennial does not
    find us a great nation. . . . it will be because those who represent the
    enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in
    controlling the political forces.”

     Founding Father and educator Noah Webster (1758-1843)
    “The moral principles and precepts
    contained in the scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil
    constitutions and laws. All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice,
    crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their
    despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.”                                             

    It is imperative that we return to the ROOTS of Our Country;
    we must return to the 7 Principles of
    the Judeo-Christian Ethic.
    What is that?
    It is what our Founding Fathers
    believed in:

    PRINCIPLE #1- The DIGNITY of Human Life

    (Respect the PERSON regardless of beliefs)

    PRINCIPLE #2- The Traditional Monogamous Family

    (Marriage=
    ONE MAN + ONE WOMAN)

    PRINCIPLE #3- A National Work Ethic

    (Stop
    asking for Government hand outs, get off your “occupy” deadbeat butt
    and find a job-ANY Job, stop expecting the Government to be your “Mommy”)

    PRINCIPLE #4- The Right to a God-centered Education

    (That
    means applying the 1st Amendment CORRECTLY! The Bible USED to be taught in ALL
    schools, the Left/Liberal AGENDA have perverted the 1st Amendment; the
    “Separation of Church and State means the Government is RESTRICTED from
    making Laws that PREVENT YOU from religious activities ANYWHERE!  Not the other way around…..Start standing
    up for YOUR Constitutional Right!)

    PRINCIPLE #5- The Abrahamic Covenant

    (What
    is the Abrahamic Covenant? Well….guess it’s time to dust off that Bible and
    do a little refresher course…..Don’t have one? Well…..guess it might be
    time to BUY ONE and crack it open……it’s the RULEBOOK of Life, contrary to
    popular belief, everything you NEED to Know, you did NOT learn in
    Kindergarten….)

    PRINCIPLE #6- Common Decency

    (Something
    a Lot of people on these comment threads could learn, just because you don’t
    like their politics, doesn’t mean you need to belittle the individual-Grow up!
    What are you Five?)

    PRINCIPLE #7- Our Personal Accountability to God

    (…….in the words of Ethan Tremblay/Chase/Stu (actor Zach
    Gilifianakis) from the movie “Due
    Date”; “You had better Check yourself before you
    wreck yourself”……stupidly simple yet profound; too many times
    we cast stones into the mirror…

    If you ever want to doubt the power of God to get your attention to act Now, listen to this. At work today my co-workers mom accidently “butt” dialed her phone & left a message that said I’mm buying our tickets to go to Dallas to attend the event at the United Airline arena. It was meant to be heard by her “church ladies of faith”.  Some dang thing in Dallas about Freedom connectors & Matt Kibbe. Roz called her back thinking it wa s for a rock concert! I said WOE there ! I need to go to Dallas too. But I need a place to stay. So I need to go now & get tickets. Because this is so important I feel can’t  allow this moment in history to not go because of doubting God to supply all my needs. God Bless!!

    People tell me all the time, why do you do what you do? You are one person, and that I will not make a difference. I disagree. Even if I can wake up 1 person, I feel successful. I do this by listening the truth, then repeating it. I do it by doing sign waves, and if 1 person stops to talk to me, I am successfull. I take responsibility to join others at tea parties, becoming involved in any local and regional political activities I can find. I do it mostly to involve my children so they are educated. And, they are learning the truth, not what they are taught at our public school. So when they are taught something that is incorrect, they are wise enough to know the difference. Not scared to speak up because they are educated. My children are 9 and 10 years old. They know more about how our goverment works than most adults. THey care more about it, too. When we encounter evil during our quest to speak and stand up for the truth, which we have many times, I just tell them we must pray for those people and remember the Serenity Prayer. Accept the things we cannot change, courage to change the things we can, wisdom to know the difference.

     Sorry Jen. You are of the generation of takers not of givers. Those who have given much, and those who have given their all, have done so willingly, just so you can live your life and believe the way you want. , It is so sad to see people like you who believe the government and everyone else owes you something. This is NOT what America is. America is the Home of the Brave and The Land of the Free. It is people like you that want to make Her like the socialist countries. I have news for you…..The true American people will NEVER let socialism take over this GREAT NATION. She may struggle and she may bend, BUT SHE WILL NEVER FALL. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THE TRUE AMERICANS WHO WILL STAND UP AND SAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

    Mr. Beck, please don’t – for one moment – feel that you have, in any way, shape or form, let us down!  You have informed, taught, clarified, nudged, challenged and inspired.  I have been faithfully watching and listening since your very first show on FOX.  You have struck such a chord, all the way along, for me.  I thought I was the only one who was aware of history and its lessons and I thought I was alone in my fears for my country and where America is headed and then along came Glenn Beck, and the movements you started.  I have paid attention, i have read, confirmed, emailed, signed petitions, contacted my representatives, talked to others right, left and sideways and it’s all due to you, your words and your actions.  Thank god for you and all that you have spearheaded.

    Good stuff Glenn.  Committing to non violence is a good idea…..but only if the “other side” commits to that as well….and…. I do not believe they have or will.  Their ideas, their beliefs, are no different than Stalin’s or Hitler’s or Chavez’s. Oh they would like to do it “non violently” but simply because it is much easier and less costly that way.  But in the end, I believe, if they have to use force….they will. Frankly, I do not see Obama just stepping aside if he loses.  I believe he has more tricks up his sleeve.  Obama cannot afford to lose and I believe he will not allow himself to be forced out of office.
    I hope I am wrong.  Just have to wait and see I guess.

    Freedom is a reward, priviledge, and token.  Once acchieved we can tape it up on our frig, post it for all to see, and be happy to hold on to it!  We can learn to color inside the lines.  We shouldn’t handycap ourselves.  Confidence in our Constitution and the Heart of America are exactly what we must teach and pass on.  I totally agree with you!! 

    Righteous pride and humble good deeds! Helping others!!   Self-control of our own U.S.A. government and compassion for all we must be consistent.

    God bless you. !!

    Wow.  Yes.  You put it exactly like I would have.  Yes.  Its time that we stand.  Stand for our convictions.  Stand for our morals.  Stand and not move.  Let the aggressors come.  We are not those, but still, we will not budge.  We will not move off of what we know is right.  There may come a time when what we stand for draws blood.  Let us not be the one that draws first.  But rest assured, if they so choose to cross that line.  I will be ready.

    Glen Honey…….where would we be if George Washington had his 4 commitments and they had to be signed before he crossed the Delaware?   would you like some “fish and chips?”   I love the way you say things and I love the way you do things.  I have been to most of your rallies, Israel was awesome. 
    BUT, there will be a time when people are going to get so sick and tired of all the reheortic that is going on and I am afraid it is not going to make a difference who signs what.   Believe me most of the people that want this nut out of the White House does not WANT VIOLENCE…we want to help our country get back to at least some what of what our four fathers fought for us…did you see what I wrote “fought”  our land is full of grave markers of people like you and me that have “fought” for us.  foreign countries are full of our young men and womens grave markers that have “fought” for our freedom’s

     What I feel is the right way to go Glen is to keep doing what you WERE doing…..we don’t have to read your commitment cards, we need to follow your cue’s YOUR ARE THE LEADER that’s what made you who you are……not this “I have to make these people read and committ because if they don’t they won’t do what they are suppose to do”  WE all believe in the Good Lord, We All Believe in non-violence, We all believe we should take care of ourselves and our own, We All Believe in the Good Lord and That if we stay faithful and let him guide us through all of this there will be hope.  You have helped change this country BACK  We ALL LOVE YOU>>>>>
    So Glen STOP PREACHING TO THE CHOIR   Just start doing AGAIN what your good at.  Keeping us informed Keeping all of us Hopeful.  Your rallies are the BEST THING YOU COULD POSSIBLE DO FOR ALL OF US.   I GO JUST TO BE WITH ALL THE HOPEFUL PEOPLE THAT LOVE THIS COUNTRY……KEEP DOING THIS AND STOP WORRYING ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT we are committed WE ARE!!!!!    

    and we are spreading the word.  Thanks to you…..hang in there Glen, we need you.  We all Love you.  Respect you.  Stop worrying about the small stuff.  AMERICA IS ALIVE AGAIN MOSTLY DO TO YOUR EFFORT.    Thanks Glen, Mona Callender, Waukee, Iowa
