In Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings Gandalf fought the ominous Balrog and fell in the Mines of Moria.  Today, Tea Party patriots and every day patriots and some leaders in congress are standing in the proverbial gap trying to hold back the ever oppressive expansion of government:  our Balrog.

Much like Tolkien’s creature, our monster is facing the line in the sand drawn by the people and they are being told  ”You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you…Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass.”

LIke the multi-thongs of the Balrog’s fiery whip are the slimy tentacles of this administration insinuating itself into our health, our energy, our pay, our possessions, our savings, our citizenship always searching, feeling, looking for ways to wrench our freedoms from us.  

The people are under assault from Democratic Senators who have now made accusations of vandalism, threats, and feel they will be in danger if they go home and face their constituents because of their votes on Sunday.   Some people have fallen for their smooth-talking rhetoric, but not conservatives.  These traitors SHOULD be very afraid for their political careers.  I am confident that these accusations will be proven false just like the allegations of racism and name calling against Tea Party members made this weekend. 

Violence, destruction and vandalism are the hallmarks of the left.  Conservatives value the democratic process, unlike their neanderthal counterparts.  Any conservatives in PETA?  ELF?  ALF?  Conservative greenies?  Examples can be found here, here, here, here, here, here, here or at NumbersUSA.      And while on the subject of traitors,  a number of Senators and members of the House are also card carrying members of the Democratic Socialists whose principles are:  Dignified Work, Environmental Justice, Economic Redistribution, Democratic Participation, Community Empowerment, Global Non-Violence, Social Justice. Those things can only be achieved by assaulting the republic and battling those who will defend this country. 

We may be just Grey Pilgrims, but we must stand firm in the face of insurmountable odds. We must stand tall, stand on principle and keep the faith of our forefathers.  This battle has been brewing for some time, it didn’t happen overnight.  We have our line in the sand.  No waffling, no appeasing, no giving in.   Take it to the Democratic/Socialists and tell them bring it.   You need encouragement?  Go here.
