Conservative Tenets: Freedom 1

This Conservative Movement is about leadership at the highest level – larger than any individual candidate and about ideals that are the fabric of every human being in living a purposeful life. This Conservative Movement is about Citizens who yearn to be more and who seek more in their leaders to create a society of honor and forethought. It is a lifeline to the 21st Century for greater thought and humanitarian action. The role of government is to keep things honest, not to provide for us or control us – there is infinitely more brainpower, initiative and desire in the private sector and the revitalized conservative movement will show how to harness this power for society as a whole… — The Conservative Movement

(1) Freedom requires a moral society and this is why the first Amendment states “Congress shall pass no law interfering with the practice of religion.”

(2) Freedom requires our leadership and representatives to be dedicated to preserving our Freedom and to serve the people with honor.

(3) Freedom requires an informed society – people must have information to elect and manage their citizen representatives.

(4) Freedom requires a Free Press to sound the alarm when our Freedom is threatened.

    Commentary on the Pledge of Allegiance
    Red Skelton

    As a schoolboy, one of Red Skelton’s teachers explained the words and meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance to his class. Skelton later wrote down, and eventually recorded, his recollection of this lecture. It is followed by an observation of his own.

    I – Me; an individual; a committee of one.

    PLEDGE – Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self-pity.

    ALLEGIANCE – My love and my devotion.

    TO THE FLAG – Our standard; Old Glory; a symbol of Freedom; wherever she waves there is respect, because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts, Freedom is everybody’s job.

    UNITED – That means that we have all come together.

    STATES – Individual communities that have united into forty-eight great states. Forty-eight individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose. All divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common purpose, and that is love for country.

    AND TO THE REPUBLIC – Republic–a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people; and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.

    FOR WHICH IT STANDS

    ONE NATION – One Nation–meaning, so blessed by God.

    INDIVISIBLE – Incapable of being divided.

    WITH LIBERTY – Which is Freedom; the right of power to live one’s own life, without threats, fear, or some sort of retaliation.

    AND JUSTICE – The principle, or qualities, of dealing fairly with others.

    FOR ALL – For All–which means, boys and girls, it’s as much your country as it is mine.

    And now, boys and girls, let me hear you recite the Pledge of Allegiance:
    “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic, for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

    Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our country, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance: “Under God.” Wouldn’t it be a pity if someone said that is a prayer, and that it would be eliminated from schools, too?

    Red Skelton
