Stop apologizing: America’s New Year’s resolution

american-eagle-day_120612I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions in general, because they tend to set people up for failure.

The resolution is as follows: Stop ceding ground to America’s enemies.

Ceding ground to America’s enemies is something that we have been encouraged to do, under various pretexts, for decades. Usually the rationales for doing so have been such things as tolerance, compassion, egalitarianism and, of course the old standby, for our own good.

While some of the people or interest groups ostensibly benefiting from said tolerance, compassion and egalitarianism may not necessarily be advocates of the tyranny that their interests are helping to advance, sometimes they are; their leaders and spokesmen almost always are.

In the end, complete enslavement will be realized.
