Glenn Beck's plan?

"Educate ourselves".


What an amazing few days on the road this has been. Your spirits have been high, your faith strong and your spine unbendable. I ended my multi-day book tour at The Villages with what had been billed as a rally but could be better described as a candid citizen-to-citizen chat.

Today, I have stopped looking for a leader to show us the way out because I have come to realize that the only one who can truly save our country…is us. To change America’s course we need to change ourselves, our expectations and our willingness to accept the unacceptable. When we refuse to allow our children to receive a trophy for participation, we are on the road to restoring the meaning of merit in our Republic. When we insist that no one is too big to fail, we will be able to learn from our mistakes, and when we demand that we are self-reliant, we will ensure that others can rely on us, not the government.

There is much to do, much to learn and time is of the essence. While I will be explaining the entire Plan over the coming weeks and months, I did want to give you a preview of some of the highlights:

  • Education is key, and not just for our children. To that end, we will be conducting a series of conventions. These will be full-day experiences where you will be immersed in learning about topics ranging from self-reliance, community organizing, the economy and how to be a political force in your own neighborhood and country. The first one will be in Orlando at UCF Arena on March 27th. You will also be able to vote to have a convention in your region by clicking here.
  • I have begun meeting with some of the best minds in the country that believe in limited government, maximum freedom and the values of our Founders. I am developing a 100 year plan. I know that the bipartisan corruption in Washington that has brought us to this brink and it will not be defeated easily. It will require unconventional thinking and a radical plan to restore our nation to the maximum freedoms we were supposed to have been protecting, using only the battlefield of ideas.
  • All of the above will culminate in The Plan, a book that will provide specific policies, principles and, most importantly, action steps that each of us can take to play a role in this Refounding.

We're screwed if Glenn Beck's "plan" works. Because, America can be reclaimed through just one path: Electing Conservative Republicans to Congress. Period. Besides, the plan of Glenn Beck sounds more like a Presidential stump speech, than a honest-to-God attempt to reclaim our Nation from Liberal/Progressive Democrats.

Knowledge is Power. However, when compared with 218 Republicans in control of Congress, and the powers that be. I think we should focus on the latter choice, while supporting the former choice during times of political peace, because we're in a political war, and real soldiers don't call a "time out" and read the Rules of Engagement. They do anything to claim, or in this case, reclaim power and our Nation.

Mr. K, for the last time I'm going to tell you: shut the fuck up.
