We were there. Our sons insisted we go. They were willing to chip in their hard-earned paper-route money (they deliver 250 homes each Saturday) at the ages of 11 and 13. They appreciated the value of hard work and how they must save for their future.

This is the video we made in the car on the way home from Washington DC. We could not have been around a calmer, gentler, family-friendly environment than even compared to an amusement park. People broke out into cheers on the subway, chanting USA, and other patriotic expressions. There were a couple “off’color” signs, but we didn’t focus on them. They were certainly out numbered by the just clear statements, or clever expressions that expressed our “outrage” at a government out of control.

We are very proud to be a part of history in this way. Older people stopped us and thanked us for bringing our children. Some even asked if they could take our picture. Elderly strangers, stopped us in the street to talk to us and the children about how important this is to them.

Without further ado, here is our video:

Bless Glenn Beck’s heart. He is up to something wonderful by getting us to consider these 9 principles:


We Surround Them – Glenn Beck

1) Yes or no: Do you believe America is a good place, that we’ve lost our way over the years, that we have done bad things but generally speaking we tried hard. We try to make amends. We have tried to do the right thing. Just like everybody else, we fail from time to time and we have truly lost our way in the last 20 years. But gosh, if you look at America, she’s good and our founders were good and our founding documents are good. We’ve just strayed too far away from them. Yes or no.

2) Yes or no: I believe in God. I may not go to the same church or synagogue or mosque as the majority of people in America, but I believe in God and he is the center of my life, and God does not tell people to behead others or to persecute others that see God in a different way. As long as that god is not telling them to persecute others.

Yes or no.

3) Yes or no: It is my responsibility to try to be better and a more honest person than I was yesterday. Sometimes I fail, I’ll make mistakes, but it’s my main mission to be better than I was personally than I was yesterday.

4) Yes or no: The family is sacred. I and my spouse are the ultimate authority under God when it comes to my family. I raise my family, and that comes with a grave responsibility. If I fail, I answer to God.

5) Yes or no: If you break the law, you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

6) Yes or no: I have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but that is not a guarantee of equal results.

7) Yes or no: I work hard for what I have, and I will share it with others that I choose when I choose, should I choose. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8) It is not un-American for anyone to disagree with my opinion, but my opinion or others’ opinions may be anti-American. Anti-American rhetoric would be anything that is destructive to the Constitution and our country as our founders understood it.

9) And the last one is the government works for me. The government answers to me. I do not answer to the government.


Glenn is asking anyone, Right or Left, Republican or Democrat to step away from the insanity and stop and consider some very basic principles – principles that are basic and decent. They are elements of our moral compass around which we navigate through our American life. Some, however, trash these ideals and are perverting everything good and decent.

The deal is this, if you support or believe in seven or more of these ideals, then send a picture of yourself  and spouse to wesurroundthem@gmail.com or wesurroundthem@foxnews.com . Glenn plans to use these photos in some way in the future, including the possibility of showing them on his show on FoxNews.

The reality is, that Obama and the other liberals are trying to shove through the most vile and outrageous deviation from our Constitution imaginable. The whole idea of getting us to feel cut off and isolated and helpless – is exactly what they want. This has been a stealth move, orchestrated since the beginning of this century by a group called the “Progressives”. See book Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg.

We encourage everyone to keep up with Glenn Beck and what he is planning to do with all these photos. As of this point, he will have a studio audience on his FoxNews show on Friday, March 15th 5:00pm. His show begins at 5pm est. Be sure and record the show if it is too early.

There is also another great thing happening. Glenn has helped everyone around the country gather together on the night of this broadcast in a “Meet-Up” gathering. You have probably heard that Obama and friends such as “Move-On.org” get everyone to meet together at rallies or in each other’s homes – this is how he motivates such enormous ground support. Obama and friends are masters of the Internet and new media. Well now it’s time to turn the tables. The ground is swelling in a way rarely seen in America.

So everyone, it’s time to get to work and get connected. We are Americans – those 9-12-2001 people. We are the people who are hurt but not broken; down but not out. We love this country and it’s time we take it back.

We Surround Them!


P.S. I’d also like to recommend Smart Girl Politics – a social networking web site for Conservative women – but it doesn’t look like just women are joining. Smart Girl is a fun, hip place to find other people, just like you,

Hi everyone,

I apologize for the light blogging. Number one, I have a lot of thoughts on the current political tides in our country – but am very frustrated with my powerlessness to effect any changes. I have actually started at least 10 articles in the last couple of weeks but have quit 3/4 the way through.

Meanwhile, I am preparing for a 360 fusion of my lumbar spine. There has been a lot to do – donate blood, get fitted for a back brace, pre-admission testing, type and cross-matched – and all the other pleasantries of having a rapidly deteriorating back. There is also all the fun stuff of getting a family prepared to live without the CFO (Chief Family Officer) out of commission for the NEXT THREE MONTHS!!! and beyond.

I will do what I can here. I would like to point people to Glenn Beck’s newsletter for the day which has all the articles of Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism:

Liberal Fascism Recap

February 25, 2008 – 9:40 ET

Below is a recap of the Liberal Fascism series by Jonah Goldberg that appeared in the Glenn Beck email newsletter…

Feb 22: Emulating FDR: A horrible idea
Feb 21: Government Knows Best
Feb 20: What Hillary and Barack have in store
Feb 19: The facts your liberal friends need to hear

Emulating FDR: A horrible idea
By Jonah Goldberg

“America has a dictator,” Benito Mussolini proclaimed, watching FDR from abroad. He marveled at how the forces of “spiritual renewal” on display in the New Deal were destroying the outdated notion that democracy and liberalism were “immortal principles.” “Roosevelt is moving, acting, giving orders independently of the decisions or wishes of the Senate or Congress. … A sole will silences dissenting voices.” That almost sounds like Harry Reid talking about Bush.
Mussolini reviewed FDR’s book, Looking Forward proclaiming the author a kindred spirit. The way Roosevelt “calls his readers to battle,” he wrote, “is reminiscent of the ways and means by which fascism awakened the Italian people.” “Without question,” he continued, the “sea change” in America “resembles that of fascism.” Indeed, the comparisons were so commonplace, Mussolini’s press office banned the practice. “It is not to be emphasized that Roosevelt’s policy is fascist because these comments are immediately cabled to the United States and are used by his foes to attack him.”
The German press adored FDR. In 1934, the Vlkischer Beobachter, the Nazi Party’s official newspaper, described Roosevelt as a man of “irreproachable, extremely responsible character and immovable will” and a “warm-hearted leader of the people with a profound understanding of social needs.” Hitler sent FDR a letter celebrating his “heroic efforts” and “successful battle against economic distress.” Hitler informed the U.S. ambassador, William Dodd, that New Dealism was also “the quintessence of the German state philosophy.”
The New Dealers were not so much mimicking the Soviet Union, Fascist Italy or Nazi Germany. They were attempting to recreate what they had built -up under Woodrow Wilson’s war socialism. Today we have no historical memory of how brutal the Wilson Administration was, nor do we realize that many Progressives supported the war not so much because they championed its foreign policy aims, but because they yearned for the “social possibilities of war,” in the words of John Dewey, the 20th century’s premier political philosopher.
