Gingrich and Defeating Leftism in America

By Rick Pearcey • January 23, 2012, 09:10 AM

Bruce Walker writes at American Thinker:

Gingrich can beat Obama and add more Republicans to elective office. His debating skills will eviscerate Obama, and a Republican platform like the Contract With America would put the left on the defensive through November. More importantly, however, Gingrich can actually defeat leftism in America.

Thus far, Gingrich has done the best job of articulating the antithesis between the rules of freedom (as set forth in the Constitution and Declaration) and the rules of unfreedom (as embraced by radicals Obama and Saul Alinsky).

Whoever wins the GOP nomination, however, if the United States is to escape the clutches of Obama and Obamaism, this fundamental antithesis must be front and center, with particular issues (education, marriage, life, energy, foreign policy, jobs, etc.) framed as choices between these two different destinies for the American people.

And then, while in office, a new president must govern in ways consistent with the rules for freedom. Arrayed against him will be the Democrat machine and RINO Republicanism, not to mention islands of unfreedom in media, the academy, Hollywood, unions, and secularized churches.

Therefore, while the new president is governing, American society in all her sectors must be educated anew in those founding and liberating principles that alone have demonstrated an ability to make this nation a "shining city on a hill."

In this way, the American people can begin throwing off the chains of liberalism and squishy Republicanism.

And when your kids and their kids ask what you did in the struggle to liberate America, those who participate in refounding this great nation will have some terrific stories to tell. Gather around the campfire to pass the torch of freedom.
