What’s left for the right?

I know you’re busy earning a living. And I know that it’s not that you don’t care – but that you care so deeply that it’s hard for you to even think about what’s been going on in this country this week-it’s just so painful.

But, if you’re a conservative, I think you’ll need to stop long enough to call up your local talk radio talk show and vent.

After all, you deserve it, since it’s your hard-earned dollars paying the salaries of the politicos who not only want to take the aforementioned hard-earned money away from you, but destroy all the values you hold dear in the process.

It’s time for conservatives to rise up out of their cul-de-sacs and take back control of their country. Or else our children are going to pay the price.

Here’s what the past week of liberal Democratic control of Congress has done for our nation:

Democrats summarily dismissed the President’s new strategy for Iraq We are in the midst of a war that is putting our troops lives on the line. We owe it to them to support them in the field.

Yet Democrats claim the president’s plan is unworkable. Yet they have no plan of their own. If you truly cared about winning a war, really wanted to safeguard national security, and didn’t care for the Commander-in-Chief’s war strategy, wouldn’t you at least propose a plan of your own? But that would require too much work. And you’re too busy posing for TV news cameras anyway.

Democrats attempted to embarrass President George W. Bush by forcing a vote on a federal funding plan for stem cell research he opposed. Embryonic stem cell research has resulted in zero successful treatments. That’s why its backers are so determined to get federal funding, because private investors aren’t willing to fund it. Instead, they’re funding the proven, ethically sound research known as adult stem cell research.

If we’re going to give our tax dollars to scientists, wouldn’t it be better to give it to those who are achieving real results?

No, the Democrats say, we should open up the public coffers to anyone willing to fiddle around with human embryos for fun and profit.

As a fellow conservative, I don’t blame you if you’re fed up with scandal, corruption, and political gamesmanship in Washington. So am I. But if you care about this country’s future – and the future of your grandchildren – you’ll take action now.

You’ll write a letter to the editor, you’ll call your Congressman. You’ll tell your children that country is more important than political advantage, that patriotism isn’t a dirty word, that the best way to make money is to earn it. You’ll stand up for the conservative values that your parents and grandparents instilled in you.

And you won’t apologize for trying to reverse the course of Pelosi’s 100 days.
