As the progressives gain more and more ground, the stakes become higher and the point of no return gets closer.  Are you still sitting on the sidelines?  Are you still expecting someone else to come along and stop them?  Are you content to continue stealing from your children and grandchildren?  Will you continue to willingly hand over your liberties and theirs?  Do you still think “someone” is going to fix all this?

“If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to.”

The “progressives” are not sitting on the sidelines and are getting what they demand. When will it become too late to get off our butts and change course toward freedom? Do we really want the United States to morph even more into The Democratic People’s Republic of Amerika? Or do we want to return to a Constitutional Republic?

If not now, when?

If not us, who?

That’s what…
