Well, I just watched Glenn Beck's keynote address at CPAC, and let me tell ya. This man is spot on in all his comments about the state of the GOP and America in general.
When I first started I wondered what he was going to do. Was he going to be nice to the GOP, or was he going to be his normal pull no punches self. Well within the first couple of minutes he was slamming (without naming him) John McCain and his admiration for a certain progressive president. At that point I was glad to see that he is not going to pull a punch about anything.
He brought his now trademarked blackboard to the platform and it was met with a "standing O". He taught about the dangers of the Progressive movement that is facing our Country, Future, and Constitution. He talked about the pride that all of us as Americans should feel for our country. We should not try to be more like Europe, they should look to us, Glenn Proudly proclaimed, and I must say. I agree!
As I was watching the 50 minute speech I thought to my own convictions, and where I stand on the current political climate. The message I got, well at least on the them, is that we need to stop accepting the status quo of "good enough" and a little better when it come to the quality of politician we elect. We need to hold our politicians to a high standard, and we need to make sure that the polices set in place are held to that same standard. What standard is that? The standards set in the constitution. We need to completely eradicate the progressive and unconstitutional behavior from Washington DC.
He spoke about mans right to fail. He spoke about how it is a a right to fail and that we should not be stripped of that right. In fact he proclaimed that for the Govt. to do so is harmful to America and its path to success. I have to say, I agree!
