• If We Surrender ‘Americanism’ … We Don’t Deserve It in the First Place

    Surge Summary: “Americanism” is a glorious system, but we have to fight to preserve it, right now. If we don’t, we deserve to lose it. 

    by Allan Erickson

    The American system of government is totally unique in all of human history. It delivers liberty and prosperity for the greatest number. It’s called Americanism.

    Ours is a system of self-government securing the blessings of liberty. This is a government of, by and for the People, as Lincoln pointed out. It is a work in progress, admittedly, but it remains the best defense against tyranny, anarchy, and deprivation.

    Either we renew our commitment to Americanism, agreeing on the fundamentals, and contracting with one another in its defense, or we will consign posterity to 1,000 years of darkness marked by unrivaled atrocity.

    This is the hour of decision, the pivot point.

    If we surrender to communism or Sharia we betray 250 years of patriot blood spilled in our defense.

    If we surrender, we commit an unspeakable act of cowardice.

    If we surrender, we show we are not worthy of liberty.

    However, if we unify and fight for our God-given rights, if we renew our commitment to “One Nation Under God,” and if we rely on His grace, wisdom and mercy, we can stand against any adversary and win the day.

    Urge everyone you know to do this patriotic soul searching, encouraging them to vote for Americanism: Prosperity, Liberty, Security.
