President’s Message: Stand Up!

Fellow Young Republicans,

Obama Offers Liberal Vision: ‘We Must Act’

That’s the top headline of today’s New York Times.


When a left wing editorial like the NY Times describes your agenda as liberal even from their point of view, you bet your bottom dollar — it is!


In his second Inaugural Address, President Obama made clear that the 48% of Americans that voted for the other guy could, effectively, kiss it.  Never having to face the voters again, Mr. Obama intends to enact every left wing dream he was unable to force upon the voters the first time around.


Think I’m kidding?  Listen to President Obama in his own words, when he thinks the microphone is off.  He already pledged unequivocally, “This is my last election. After my election, I’ll have more flexibility (to the Kremlin).”


Pseudo-conservative David Brooks, who also writes for the NY Times, concisely said of the second Obama inauguration“It was about collectivism…  Four years ago it was about trans-partisan, healing divides… Now he’s in the fray.  He’s picked a team.”


Believe me, that team doesn’t represent you.  So, when will President Obama get to work enacting his more flexible, more liberal agenda?  Immediately!  In fact, he’s already started.


Presidential Historian Richard Norton Smith says that second term presidents like Obama know they have effectively six months to effectively govern before they face congressional mid-terms and become lame ducks.


Knowing what we know, I call upon Young Republicans to stand as firmly as ever against the coming onslaught of left wing goodies President Obama intends to unleash upon our country.  It is up to us to support our elected officials as they fight for our values in a Washington that doesn’t care what our half of the country thinks.


Over the next 6 months, we will be stepping up our presence online, on air, and on the ground.  We have to let America know that we have a voice too, and we intend to use it.


I encourage you to stand firmly with us. When you hear false liberal narrative, call it out — by name!  When Washington negotiates away our future, call your representatives.  Write letters to the editor.  Follow and tweet to Republicans and tell them you’re counting on them to stand strong.


The next two years literally depend on whether or not you and I have the wherewithal to stand up and say “No!” to President Obama and lockstep liberals.  Let’s politely — but firmly — show the president that he does indeed still have to answer to the 48% that said “No!” to bigger government, more spending, and pawning away our children’s future.


I leave you with the legendary battle cry of a time honored war hero and veteran Republican standard bearer:


“Stand up!  Stand up!  Stand up and fight!  Nothing is inevitable here.  We’re Americans.  We never give up.  We never quit.  We never hide from history; we make history.”  — Senator John McCain  (watch the video here)
