Take Back Lost Ground
by Pete Ketcham
Myself and many others have went on at great length in numerous articles, editorials, Facebook, Twitter, and other means, expressing what is wrong with the liberal socialist left. The conservative talk shows, also express what is wrong with the liberal left, (almost on a 24 hour cycle), but I am yet to see a winning solution or strategy among all of us that could be realistically adopted to defeat the left’s agenda.
When I use the term “realistic” I am referring to some tactic that would immediately be recognized as a logical doable solution, and be put into effect throughout the conservative movement. I realize there are many conservatives doing all they can do twenty-four seven to save our constitutional nation, and I applaud them for their dedication and effort, but still, we desperately need a major “game changer” to win this constitutional war.
We conservatives, for the most part, have been fighting a defensive battle, reacting to the offensive actions of the left for many years, and perhaps that is the root problem. It would seem, that our basic goal would be to develop a strategy to “TAKE BACK LOST GROUND” in all the arenas we lost it in. The first and foremost arena is the national education system, then the news media, and lastly the entertainment industry. As we all know, these three entities drive the culture, which in turn drives the politics, all of which determine the moral and political course of our nation.
I believe this “take back lost ground” strategy should be a grass roots movement similar to the TeaParty movement, but much more unified nation wide. A potential game changing asset within this movement could be the political uniting of the evangelic christian churches. This effort to step into the political arena by the evangelic churches would not be a dilution of preaching the gospel of Christ, but instead it would be the taking on of an additional burden of bringing our nation back to it’s christian underpinnings. I had found in my TeaParty experience, that there were opportunities to share the gospel of Christ with people who would normally never “darken the doors” of a conventional church. I believe that if the churches did step into the political arena (regardless of tax consequences), it would open up additional opportunities for evangelism throughout the nation.
Over all it would take some very wise planning and support throughout the conservative community to develop an effective strategy to take back the lost ground, yet, if we remain in our defensive mode, we will continue to lose ground regardless of who is the president, or who holds majority in congress.
In future articles I hope to be able to articulate some of the specific elements that would need to be considered in the development of new conservative strategies.
