“Our gas tank is empty   and there is a combination lock on the gas cap.  Government won’t  release the combination.  If we can’t get the gas cap off, we can’t  fill the tank with fuel and our engine will never run again!  Is this  true?”  Ron Ewart
In all of our wars and all of the  difficulties we have faced as a nation in the last 235 years, if we would let a  little thing like a combination lock get in the way of where we wanted to go,  America would have never gotten where it is.  If there was a wall, we went  over it, around it, under it ….. or through it.  If there was a lock in  our way, we “picked it” or blew it up.  If there was a frontier, we  explored it.  If there was a beachhead, we took it.  If there was a  tyrant, we pulled his teeth and rendered him impotent ….. or dead.  If  there was a bridge to be built, we built it.  If we wanted to go into  space, into space we went.   Literally nothing stood in the way of  Americans, when they wanted to create something, build something, stop a  dictator, or get to a place where they wanted to go.   We were  unstoppable and contrary to popular opinion, we still are.
When a person or a nation was in  need, we met that need out of the greatness, goodness and kindness of  our collective hearts.  Americans are the most generous people on planet  earth and don’t let anyone tell you different.  We could do all these  things because we were not only free, but that freedom allowed us to create the  wealth from which we were able to BE generous.
Which brings us to today.  How  is it that Americans, who not only carved out an  unprecedented free society based on unalienable individual rights as a gift  from our creator at a horrendous sacrifice, conquered a continent, but who also  created a country of vast wealth and riches, would a let a little thing like an  Obama, or a corrupt Congress, or a mis-guided judiciary that have  thrown our unalienable rights and our constitution to the wolves, stand in the  way of reclaiming our freedom and our Republic?  Have we lost our  courage to enter into a fight to prevent being enslaved?  Are we so afraid  of losing what we have, that we would back away from aggressively  challenging those that are trying to take it away, even if those that are trying  to take it away are some of our own people?  Just because our enemy is a  domestic one and not a foreign enemy does that preclude us from taking them  on?  Have we grown so timid and apathetic that we shrink in  fear when a fight is thrust upon us and ladies and gentlemen, a fight is  being thrust upon us like never before?  It is a deadly fight between  two opposing ideologies and a government that uses those opposing ideologies to  divide, conquer and enslave us.
What are we waiting for?   Must we be frozen like a deer in the headlights until a Messiah  or a charismatic leader appears, before we challenge those that are hell  bent on robbing the fuel from our engine and locking us in chains and throwing  the key away?
If this is true, then America has  little chance to restore itself.  But   we don’t, for one minute, believe that this is true.  Still it begs the  question, who is going to re-start America’s engine?  Who will find   the combination that will unlock our gas tank and fill it with  fuel? Who will turn the key that starts our engine, revs it up and peels  rubber towards the goal post of freedom?
We know for sure that it won’t be one  man, it will be millions of men and women who have united under the foundation  of unalienable rights and the willingness to sacrifice all, to preserve those  rights for current and future generations.  It will be a million  charismatic individuals, or just hard-working, determined   plodders, that will inspire others to follow him, or her.  Some will  take on the city, or county council.  Some will take on the school  board.  Some will take on the state legislatures and it will make no  difference what political stripe the council member or the legislator  wears.  Each will be equally challenged by those who will not  tolerate the destruction of “THEIR” America!
As we get our feet wet taking on  local and state governments and institutions, it will give us the courage and  experience to crack the big nut, an out-of-control federal  government.  Because you see, all across  this great land are individual after individual and group after group that are  springing up out of no where to take on the status quo that has grown like a  cancer, out of 100 years of apathy and indifference to what government was  doing.  The infiltration of international special interests and policies  into American institutions is being challenged.  Radical  environmentalism and its brainchild, man-caused global warming, is being  debunked day after day.  Resistance to world government and the attempts to  dissolve American sovereignty, is also growing.  Government programs  that are fully designed to brainwash and indoctrinate our children, are getting  a more thorough vetting and then discarded.   Talk of dismantling the  U. S. Department of Education grows stronger.  Small skirmishes are turning  into wins as the people shrug off their fears and thrust their angry noses  into the closed club of power politics.
High tension is in the air and  changes are riding on the wind like we have never seen. There is a grand  awakening and those that have perpetrated the destruction of America grow  nervous.  They are fighting back to maintain their power, but their actions  are taking on the sour smell of desperation and their power is  showing signs of weakening, as the rising crescendo of the American spirit and  patriotism echoes across the fruited plains and reverberates through  the canyons and valleys of our mighty mountains ….. from sea to  shining sea.  The enemy is on the defensive and as the crescendo rises even  more, they will eventually be on the run.  We WILL reclaim  a free America!
Sure, we are divided right  now and our efforts are fractured.  We are being forced to take on this  domestic enemy across a thousand different fronts because the  Progressive’s plan to defeat us, that has been in the making for 100 years was  to do just that.  The plan was to divide, conquer, buy off and dumb  down the people, the oldest strategy of a covert war.  But our true  strength lies in uniting all of our factions under one bright flag.  We  have yet to coalesce around a single issue and gather our collective  strengths to find a solution to that issue, or tear down the infrastructure that  allows that issue to exist.  When we do, the seemingly impenetrable walls  that lay before us, will begin to crumble.
In an article we wrote in August of  2010 entitled “What If  60 Million People Signed a Petition to Repeal Obama Care?” we  said this:
“So much of  life presents itself as a bundle of sticks.  If we try to take on the whole  bundle at one time, we find the task too daunting, get frustrated and turn  away or give up.  And so it is with our struggle  to preserve, protect and defend freedom and liberty.  The bundle  we must break appears to be overwhelming, unless we take the bundle apart  and start breaking (fixing) the ‘sticks’, one-by-one.  Even  armed with this knowledge, so many of us lament, ‘….. but  there are so many sticks, how can we possibly break them all?’   And  indeed there are many ‘sticks’.  But if we don’t start breaking the  ‘sticks’ right now, one-by-one, more will be added to the bundle until no matter  how we try to take the bundle apart, no matter how many ‘sticks’ we break, many  more will be added to the bundle and the task becomes too  difficult.”
The first major “stick” to  break is dumping the current president and taking control of both houses of  congress.  Without that significant change, we will not   have sufficient political power to re-shape our government and roll  back what government has done, that has taken us to the brink of national  bankruptcy and just possibly merge America into a global government.  If we  fail to do this, it doesn’t mean that we will be denied victory in the  end.  It just means we will have to fight harder and longer at the local  and state level, where we can win.
But what if we could break the  first “stick” with a simple image and that image became so ingrained into  the body politic that it took on a life of its own? What if that  image was a prediction of the future and people started believing in  the prediction so much that it would change the way they think about who is in  charge of our government and it influenced how they vote?  What if  that image flashed across the internet and went viral?  Sometimes it only  takes a “face” to launch a thousand ships, or a  “shot heard ’round the world” to start a revolution,  or a simple idea to start a religion, or a powerful image to take down  a dictator, or a socialist?  What if you could find that image  HERE?
So ladies and gentlemen, America’s  tank is not empty and her engine is still in fine working order.  There is  power under the hood and we just need some guys to come by to put some more gas  in the tank and some brave drivers to take her out on the road.  We need  more of us to expose the corruption, the double dealing, the crony capitalism  and the irrational compassion that has enveloped our institutions and then  spread the information far and wide.  People in general, hate  corruption and backroom deals and will voice their displeasure over  it, especially at the voting booth.  We need to start undoing, by  political pressure, all of the social and environmental unconstitutional laws  that have been passed, at all levels of government.  We need to take our  schools back by checking what our children are being taught and then  pressuring the local school boards to bring sanity and common sense back to our  schools and textbooks.
We need more people to take on the  political dolts at the local and state level, millions more people, if we are to  have any effect.  The simple idea of freedom can be reborn, that is  if enough people grasp the importance of that idea and the deadly  implications if that idea should die.
America is far from dead.  As  long as there is the breath of life in just one patriot’s body, there is hope  for America.  It only takes one patriot to trigger political  change.  It only takes one hero that has the courage  to enter the free fire zone to drag those hiding in the shadows, out  of their hiding places and charge.  How many of YOU will come out of  the shadows and “Re-start America’s  Engine“?
What is “The NARLO  Solution“?
