My friend in the ether and co-conspirator in the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, General Robert “Bob” Belvedere, has penned a response to Brent Bozell’s claim that we conservatives are The Revolutionaries.

To paraphrase: “Au Contraire” says the Belvedere, “The revolutionaries occupy the White House and have their butts firmly planted in many seats of our houses of Congress. Butts that one January day in the near future will be thrown out of those seats.”

All we seek is a restoration of those unalienable rights that we are endowed with by our Creator and that are codified in the freedoms and liberties bequeathed to us by The Founding Fathers in The Constitution Of The United States Of America.

Conservatism is not revolutionary. It is, in fact, quite the opposite. By definition conservatism seeks to preserve tradition and tried and true methods that have proven worthy of merit.

A restoration is exactly what we seek.

Sometimes one person or group’s definition of progress is not desirable. For instance, why on earth would America want to run headlong into Communism or Socialism, when the rest of the world is running away from those political, social and economic policies? They obviously don’t work and yet we have the numb skulls in office, on both sides of the aisle, clamoring for the Keynesian policies that, if left unchecked, will eventually enslave our entire population!

I say we need a thorough delousing of Congress.

Bob’s tale is short and spot-on to the point. Do make a trip to his place and read the whole thing.

Carol of No Sheeples Here has offered to aid the Democrat Party in their new logo redesign attempt.

    I saw Bob’s article earlier..good stuff. We are not revolutionaries. We are the counter-revolution, or better yet, the Resistance. Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

      Heh, you noticed that too? I thought of using that line to promote the Resistance site and got side tracked. Been busy right-braining lately and my blogging has suffered. Hopefully the fruits of the project will be worthy of my absence.

      Bob’s post would be a good to use on the Resistance site. Bet you’re already on that one, aren’t you, you sly dog you. :)

    Excellent post, MNR! We are the resistance and bring back tradition.
    I can’t wait until we kick those bums out of their (our) seats in gov’t.
    That pic Carol did is just too cool, it’s gross, but that’s why it’s the perfect logo for the dems. We’ll commence “delousing” soon, the WH esp. needs it.

    Resistance, revolutionary, call me ‘fired up’!

    Thank you, MNR, for the kind words.
