    PROGRAM
      SPEAKER:   Bradley Beck, Former Boulder County GOP Vice Chair
 

“Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you." - Pericles

 

Have you been asked, "Why do we have a Caucus?" "What's a PCP?"  "How do I get involved?"  These are questions you may be asked as you have become more active in local politics. How do you answer them often determines how you recruit and get people involved in your community. 

 

I too have pondered these and many other questions as I have become involved in one of the toughest battlefields in Colorado. Boulder County.  To paraphrase, "If you can make it here you can make it anywhere."  Do we win elections today in Boulder County?  Heck no.  At least not yet.

 

However, we have been laying the ground work to build a farm team, by attracting, connecting and engaging by giving value first.  You can too. All it takes is a few dedicated and persistent folks to make things happen.  Come listen, learn and laugh with Brad as he shares his experiences of helping to build the "Army of Freedom" with his many friends in the liberty movement.

 

Bradley Beck is a former Boulder County Republican (BCR) Vice Chair, and he currently runs the BCR Monthly Breakfast Meetings with guest speakers and is active in many special projects for the county party.  He does messaging and marketing as well as tables over 35 community events the last several years.  

 

As a Distinguished Toastmaster, (DTM) and the Founder of Four Liberty Toastmasters Clubs and several in development, Bradley has a grounded perspective on how to connect with neighbors, friends, family and the opposition.  He is a 2009 graduate of the Leadership Program of the Rockies and the winner of the Leader in Action Award in 2015.  

    TOPIC:      HOW TO GET MORE INVOLVED IN 2016 - WINNING IN NOVEMBER

AMERICA THE EXCEPTIONAL

Excerpts from

An Aussie’s Love Letter, by Nick Adams/ Centennial Review March 2015

 

STRIVING FOR GREATNESS

            In 5,000 years of recorded human history, there has been no nation even resembling the United States.  The American model has offered and continues to offer, a greater chance for dignity, hope, and happiness for more people than any other system.

            As  Margaret Thatcher, the former British prime minister, put it:  “Europe was created by history, America was created by philosophy”.  Lady Thatcher was right.  This philosophy is one of individual liberty, free market opportunity, and belief that it’s all a gift from God.

            America is the best idea the world has ever had, the greatest value system ever devised.  What are these values that make America exceptional?  Individualism, not collectivism, Patriotism, not relativism, Optimism, not pessimism, Limited government, not the nanny state, God, not Caesar, Faith, not secularism,

 E Pluribus Unum, not multiculturalism, Life, not death, Equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome,  Goodness, not moral equivalence.  America is about being Bold, not bland, Brave, not meek, Striving for Greatness, not mediocrity. Tellingly, all of these values are aligned with what’s called today a conservative outlook.

            America rewards success without government approvals and bureaucratic interference.  It embraces religious faith, aspiration, and risk.  As a result, the people of America have been the most enterprising, market-oriented, individualistic, and averse to taxation and regulation that have ever walked the earth.

But daily we are dealing with The Onslaught from the Left:  They have created an economically unsustainable and character-destroying welfare state, they have undermined Western military strength, politicized universities and the arts, authored the culture of complaint and its close cousin, the self-esteem movement until today we are less free, poorer, weaker, less innovative, less confident, and less family oriented more divided and more faithless.

It’s past time we Relearn the American Trinity!

VIRTUE, FAITH AND LIBERTY!

            America is therefore in the fight of its life.  Individualism, patriotism, and liberty – the unique properties of American life and culture- are at diminished levels, beleaguered by the anti-American virus prevalent in schools, and universities, entertainment media, and the arts.

                                                                                    -2-

            Saving America requires bringing intellectual ammunition to the battle of ideas.  Too many people have forgotten or never learned what makes America exceptional – and you cannot advocate what you cannot articulate. Reason and faith are the two wings by which the American eagle took flight.  The arithmetic of the American trinity is simple: Virtue cannot be sustained in the absence of Faith, and if virtue is absent, then Liberty must be as well.  Yet new generations of Americans are unable to write out the formula, let alone balance the equation.

            Nothing is more anti-American, anti-freedom, anti-truth, and anti-reality than political correctness.  It is a noose around America’s neck, growing tighter each day.  From identity politics and secularism to the all-powerful welfare state and the war against national identity, every problem in America today is compounded by this suffocating regime of thought control. Unless plain speaking is allowed, clear thinking is denied.  Recognize that the unfettered American dream and the regimented politically correct mindset cannot coexist.

            The words of Thomas Paine in 1776 resonate with Americans today:

            “These are the times that try men’s souls.  The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in  this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”

           

What does America have to do to come back in these trying times of our own?  How do we win this fight?  How do we vanquish the forces besetting us and restore American glory? We do it, I believe, as Americans always have: through liberty, good constitutionally-limited government, free enterprise, and traditional Judeo-Christian values.  Who can vindicate American Exceptionalism?...  Patriotic citizens with traditional values.  People just like us!

“To whom much is given, much is required,” said Jesus.  Ponder that, my friends.  You have been bequeathed the high responsibility of continuing to support and export the greatest value system ever devised.  STAY THE COURSE, AMERICA!

It's the Soldier,

not the reporter

Who has given us the freedom of the press.

 

It's the Soldier,

not the poet,

Who has given us the freedom of speech.

 

It's the Soldier,

not the politicians that ensures

Our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

 

It's the Soldier

who salutes the flag, 

who serves beneath the flag,

and whose coffin is draped by the flag.

 

 


Fracking Brings Lower Heating Bills This Winter 


CRED_02WeeklyGraphic-Groundhog_SL_TW1024x5121.png

 

Tuesday was Groundhog Day, and Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow.

Regardless of whether Spring comes early or not, fracking will keep you warm for the rest of winter—and you won’t have to spend an arm and a leg on your heating bills.

The large amount of oil and natural gas production in Colorado has created an abundant supply of energy, leading to lower prices for residents. That’s why Colorado’s 2015 energy bills were the lowest in the nation, averaging $224 a month.

President Obama believes he can stop terrorists by taking away your 2nd Amendment rights. Let's review his logic: stop bad people with guns by taking away the guns of good people?As Mark Steyn recently said, liberals only want two groups to have guns: police and terrorists.

Tell the President: Leave My 2nd Amendment Rights Alone!

The right to protect yourself against tyranny and threat is a God-Given right.Earlier this year, liberals even tried to take away my right to bear arms. I fought them and I won.Stand with me in telling the President NO to taking away our 2nd Amendment rights!

Standing for you,

Sign Petition: Protect My 2nd Amendment Rights
