A partisan view...


Interesting word used a lot today. Many speak of themselves as 'non-partisan' for themselves or their group. But have you ever looked at what it means?

Here is Websters definition for partisan....

1 : a firm adherent to a party, faction, cause, or person; especially : one exhibiting blind, prejudiced, and unreasoning allegiance
2 a : a member of a body of detached light troops making forays and harassing an enemy b : a member of a guerrilla band operating within enemy lines

So if we take this word as defined and then add 'no' to it, we now have "no adherence to a party, faction, cause or person".

In other words, not black or white but a whole lot of grey. A big tent. All inclusive. But... standing for nothing. No thanks. If it's the cause of returning our country to the constitution... I am entirely partisan. The guy in the white house is extremely partisan in his desire at destroying it. And I have no desire to add his views to my camp. Because this is war. And the very survival of our republic is at stake.

Look at the second definition. "A member of a body of detached light troops making forays and harassing the enemy. We are at war. And is our DUTY to attack those on the other side. Because to not take a stand is appeasement, which I have no stomach for. We are at war. Those who would diminish the founder's intentions and directions of this country, THEY ARE THE ENEMY! And while the battle in front of us (for now) is in both word and ideas, we have to stay on the offensive because it's not about keeping our ground, it's about reclaiming it all.

I use to refer to the term "Don't Tread on Me" as another way of saying "Leave Me Alone". The problem is... by the time I'm affected, it will be too late. I'ts time for the offensive. 'Don' Obama is laying the groundwork to redo our country and sooner than later this will not be the America of the past.

"Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God!" It is my oath to my kids... and yours.
