So says Mark Levin about American government in his new book, a href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1416562850?ie=UTF8tag=wwwviolentkicomlinkCode=as2camp=1789creative=9325creativeASIN=1416562850″emLiberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto./em/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=1416562850″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”" style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / I looked over the book a while back after Glenn received an advanced copy but didn’t read it thoroughly due to time constraints. It looked pretty good then but when I saw it was up to #1 on Amazon, I decided to give it a second read. I’m glad I did. For his “Conservative Manifesto” is a wake-up call to all of us who care about individual freedom and resisting the transition to statism.br /br /Mr. Levin gives some thoughts on what conservatives need to be doing. He describes why many conservatives don’t become engaged in public matters but explains why it is important to change:br /br /blockquoteThe Conservative must become more engaged in public matters. It is in his nature to live and let live, to attend to his family, to volunteer time with his church and synagogue, and to quietly assist a friend, a neighbor, or even a stranger. These are certainly admirable qualities that contribute to the overall health of the community. But it is no longer enough. The Statist’s counterrevolution has turned the instrumentalities of public affairs and public governance against the civil society. They can no longer be left to the devices of the Statist, which is largely the case today.br /br /This will require a new generation of conservative activists, larger in number, shrewder, and more articulate than before, who seek to blunt the Statist’s counterrevolution–not imitate it–and gradually and steadily reverse course. More conservatives than before will need to seek elective and appointed office, fill the ranks of administrative state, hold teaching positions in public schools and universities, and find positions in Hollywood and the media where they make a difference in infinite ways. The Statist does not have a birthright ownership to these institutions. The Conservative must fight for them, mold them, and where appropriate, eliminate them where they are destructive to the preservation and improvement of civil society. /blockquotebr /br /We are already seeing people who have never been politically active taking part in tea parties across the nation. You will often hear that these tea parties “don’t matter” but in reality, the tea parties are a “mind hit.” That is, they are not what people expect. Lefties form groups and rally–building connections and networks of grassroots activists who can be called on when needed. Conservatives typically stay home. But not anymore. Moms,Dads, business people and others are taking to the streets and forming connections with each other and learning to organize against the statists of the world. br /br /If there is a tea party near you, attend. I plan to.

If you have not checked out AlfonZo Rachel’s show, emZonation,/em on PJTV, do so. He is funny, understands pop culture and is a conservative. His short two minute segments may be amusing, but they are filled with a serious message for conservatives and those on the right. Culture drives politics. If we can change culture, we can change politics. It takes time and effort but Rachel is on the right track.br /br /a href=”http://www.pjtv.com/?cmd=pagepage-id=162″Take a look at his shows here/a–they are short, easy to watch and to the point.
Their highest words of praise are “shocking,” “disturbing,” “searing,” and “radical.” Forget about faith, decency, sweetness, or charm.
