The future of the conservative movement

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Tuesday night on The Glenn Beck Program, guest host Dana Loesch opened the show with this:

“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”

A quote from Ronald Reagan’s first inaugural address as governor that serves as an important reminder that freedom, liberty, and the understanding of tyranny is not genetic. Freedom and liberty have been taken for granted for a long time in this country, and the result has been a generation of apathetic 20-somethings that don’t know what tyranny looks like.

Or so media would have you believe.

Dana was joined by a studio audience of people that the media would have you believe don’t exist, young conservative activists, “the future of the conservative movement.”

America is at a crossroads and young conservatives know what’s at stake for them – the choice is clear. America as the founders envisioned it, with a small, limited government, or what you see at Occupy. A group of young Americans revolting because Uncle Sam didn’t give them enough. A new class of citizens who don’t understand that if you rob from the rich to give to the poor, no one is better off for it.

“One choices gives your freedom of government intervention in your speech, your religion, your assembly, your press. One grants you due process and doesn’t impede petition for redress of your grievances,” Dana said.

The other choice, she continued, looks more like Rahm Emanuel and other authority figures in our country who use intimidation to shutter businesses and shut down the freedom of thought and speech of anyone with an opposing viewpoint.

“A choice that removes your 4th Amendment right upon travel. A choice that demolishes the 10th Amendment’s soft sovereignty of individual states. A choice that makes you financial responsible for your neighbor while denying you the decisions that effect your cost.”

For years we’ve been told that the Democrat Party is the “party of the youth,” and lately they’ve been trying to keep their boot on the neck of the youth by offering them cradle to grave care – “the ultimate nanny experience.”

It has become socially acceptable for a 26-years-old to be on their parent’s health insurance and still living at home with mom and dad – a description that used to be the description of a loser. Because of the growing nanny state, the nation’s debt is growing out of control.

“Every child born is now born into servitude with a personal share of around $50,000 worth of national debt.”

Despite this, every child in America is being told that they have to go to college to be successful. But not just any college, society is teaching young Americans that trade and tech schools just aren’t good enough.

“So we go into debt to pay for an education that can’t be used after graduation because no one is hiring. Why is no one hiring? Business can’t plan ahead because Congress fights over whether or not they’re going to increase taxes on job creators.”

Dana went on to explain that the youth-loving Democrats pushed to artificially lower the interest rates of student loans for 1 year, something that would have to be subsidized by a decade of higher taxes on businesses that file as S-Corps. Sounds great, right? Except, when these students graduate they can’t find jobs. Why? Businesses lack the capital to hire them – like the majority of businesses that file as S-Corps.

The Democrats have a different motive than the average young adult who is going to college, looking five years into the future at what they hope do with their education. No, the Democrats aren’t worried about the future of these students looking at six-figures of debt. They’re worried about how to hold onto their power and win the next election, so they’re using the concept of “free education” as a sales campaign for the youth vote.

“This was the lens the Democrats attempted to reach the youth, with their faceless, composite freak, Julia,” Dana said. “Julia is the Democrats dream woman – faceless creation with no mouth and no voice…Her entire existence was provided for by the government,” Dana explained. “There is no freedom in that.”

“Our generation, we crave freedom,” she continued. “I’ve said it before, we are the true counter-culture. We are like salmon swimming upstream. We recognize the danger in seeding liberty for convenience. The hand that feeds you is the hand that holds you down. And instead of dedicating on cop cars in the street, we’re taking the fight right to congresses doorstep. This is one of the reasons the media has tried so hard to pain the Tea Party and grass roots as old and out-of-touch. Their entire narrative is destroyed the moment the recognize how youth lead it truly is. We are living proof that liberty sells.”

“We don’t want to be the generation that loses that freedom, so we’re giving it all we’ve got.”

    It is true that since the collapse of the Soviet Union a generation has not known what tyranny is; what oppression and evil at the core are face to face. Under Obama we have come to see the truth of the matter, all generations, and recognize it for truth…

    Evil and tyranny are inside the walls, at the helm of the ship of state, and sending us on course for the final ending of our freedom.

    The Democrats saw in 2010 the first awakening of America, and shall see it again in full this November; and even if Obama goes for broke and his dictatorship as many assume he will, those who commit such treason and insurrection and rebellion will learn the truth of america:

    “Today we have seen the face of evil, recognized the enemies of freedom, and they are OURS!”

    In the end WE the PEOPLE will win!

    2012 We shake DC to the core of its world.
    2013 We are a free people again.
    2013 The treason and criminal trials begin.

    Let all enemies of the nations people understand, all those within the borders and without, we have had enough, we are awake, we are taking our home back.

    One thing I Don’t Understand is Why would a Parent Not Help Their Kids to Be the Best They Can Be???

    I have seen many families where the Parents Only Care About The Kids Is When It’s Tax Time!  (Need them Deductions & EIC’s more than Love and a Good Future With Responsible Adults)

  • Draxx

    We are starting to Home School Our Kids from now on…

    I ask all kinds of kids from friends, family, and social events, a simple question, “What Songs Do You Sing In Music Class?  I am curious to find out if they are the same songs I sang as a Kid.”  And They All give me the Same Answer, “Uh, I Dunno just some songs I guess…”; the Funny Thing about it for Me Is, I Remember Almost Every Song I Sang In Grade School!  Why are they so scared to tell us what they are being taught?

    One thing we know, that by teaching our kids we will Know what Content, Morals, History, and What A Future With Freedom Can Be Like!!!

    Excuse me, but every young person I know in this situation wants nothing more than to find a good job, earn a strong salary, and begin their independent life.  However, the economic situation in this country is putting that dream on hold.  The reason:  the mess created when we turned a blind eye to what the financial sector was doing.  Deregulation, lack of oversight, and blind faith in “free market capitalism.”  All, I would point out, conservative principles!

    Uh…Excuse me…but no other president in the history of this nation has driven the deficit to such soaring heights. O’Bummer set records there! No other president has punished small business as severly as this current moron has. No other president thought that a job was a three monthy stint with a government agency building something that the tax payers funded…and paid the workers for…needed or not. HEAVY regulation is paid for the the half (HALF) of this country that pays taxes, you dolt, because it drives businesses into bankruptcy and forces the former employees onto the GOVERNMENT handout system. Liberals…sheesh…I don’t get your line of thought…if you can call it that! This current government has RUINED our country’s economic status. In a few short months, we should be just about where Greece is. If O’Dumbo should steal another election with the fraud perpetrated in his first, we will be a third world nation, dependant on big brother for everything. Which, in the end, will be NOTHING! Liberals (pinko’s) are just reason tards.

    I forgot…The nanny state is what O’Dumbo wants. Free market capitalism is what gave us the time of plenty during the Reagan years. It’s representative of FREEDOM. Since then, liberal ideals have begun chipping away at the greatness of this nation.

    I swear…you make me ashamed of my honest disability… This is NOT the America I grew up in(I suppose you’re tired of hearing that)…BUT YOU ARE CORRECT! As usual,We’ll have to “do it ourselves”if we want/expect it to get fixed. ‘dis sucks!

     I love the way you said what you said…These people(congess)is sooo imbeded in our living,they are going to have to come to understand…They…”they might become part of the recipe for OUR stew”. Tonight,if they don’t do their jobs. Kicking the can down the road is NOT what we elected them for…Kick the bums out! Take their living away from them…R.A.T. NOW!

     Since I became Christian….it’s like my eyes were opened for the 1st time. All(or most)of the stuff on TV is sold by sex and greed…My friends Grand kids have been home schooled now for 2 years…They are(not my imagination) the only children I can be around. They have manners,don’t sass,and reflect a respect their parents gave them. Also,the children don’t have unlimited access to the television. The shows are too much for children…it just gives them too many expectations that children were NEVER meant to have.

     Death by a huge blow or a thousand small cuts is still DEAD! And yes,”WE” may have eventually got “here”, but NOBAMA is trying to do the “hope and change” in 4 years…So much for incrementalism…

    Save me your recently-amplified love-related self-righteousness. Conservatives and liberals hate alike. There is no imbalance there. Meet us in the real world where we don’t live by your myth (liberal = bad; conservative = good)

    The only problem is I AM in the real world already, where are you?

  • Anonymous

    That’s true, it is a problem. Your problem. Can you say you love Obama and your fellow Americans who happen to be liberals?

  • Anonymous

    Absolutely.  I love them, I also respect them and their views on how to run the government.  I don’t agree with them, but i respect them.  I agree that gays should have the right to get married, i’m also a converted global warming skeptic.  Now i ask you, do you love and respect the views of your fellow Americans who happen to be Conservative Christians?  And do you respect the view that people should be allowed to own and carry guns?

  • Anonymous

    So you are an exception to the Beck crowd. Good for you. And yes I do. I love them all. And I think our right to own and carry guns is something we have paid for many times already. It is a freedom earned. It has consequences, yes, but we must live and deal with them. You know what, I even love Glenn Beck. I love him enough to be here a be a constant dissenting voice to his continuous contradictions. He, in me view, hasn’t have the life and credentials to be a voice for love, as his anti-Obama rants are full of hatred and are designed to inflate the hate toward one of our most exceptional presidents.

    I get that, and yes I sort of do think of myself as an exception to the Beck crowd. He is promoting his “Restoring Love” tour and that sounds all fine and dandy but how long will it be (if it indeed ever happens) until he is promoting an “Obama Should be Executed because we Think he has Committed Treason” tour? Also he claims he is “unelectable” because he speaks the truth but yet he goes so far as to build an exact replica of the Oval Office in his studio…?
    I think you and I are a good example of people who disagree about political views (I won’t be voting for Obama this election) but yet can agree on other moral views and have a natural sense of wariness toward people that have a large following of devoted disciples that will do anything, even if it’s harmful or disrespectful to others, to show that their way is the only true right way.

    Then I apologize if I was rude. We surely need steady minds that don’t blow which ever the wind blows. You sound as having one of those. Be well, God bless.

    Deregulation didn’t cause this mess.  Get a clue. Lack of oversight, lol, it was Barney Frank that prevented any “oversight” on Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. It was the government insisting that the banks make loans to people that couldn’t pay them back that lead to the housing bubble bursting.

  • Greg Williams

    The same reason they abort them.

    I love how the left calls us intolerant but yet they ignore human
    sex trafficking coming crossed the broader because doing something about the
    broader is racist.

    FineTapestry, You sound intolerant.  There is a difference between intolerance of people that are just different than you and intolerant of bad ideas.

    I love how the left calls us intolerant but yet they ignore human sex trafficking coming crossed the broader because doing something about the broader is racist. See I think it is intolerant not do something about young children being raped but I guess left wing idiots have to enslave minorities because their too lazy to take care of their own yard.
