CS Bennett – The Case for Unity -Winter Haven 912

The Case For Party Unity

The following is a speech I gave in Winter Haven, Florida on 07/08/2021…

 Let me begin by saying that I am here to advocate for party unity and stress why we conservatives, patriots, freedom lovers, and God fearing people must unite, despite our many differences. I am here to promote togetherness, not to bash the Republican Party, but I will not shy away from laying the blame for our Constitutional failures where it belongs, and that is at our party leadership inside, and outside, the DC Beltway. I am also here to make it clear that the two major political parties in this country are at war, although leaders on our side do not seem to be aware that we are. But before I touch on this subject, allow me to share something with you, and it is this…
 Some people like their coffee black, while others like their coffee with sugar. Others like it with cream. And then there are those who prefer tea, not coffee. Some of us are drawn to clergymen and clergywomen who are firebrands, others are drawn to those who are more like our favorite school teacher. In politics, some of us lean a little liberal in social issues, while we are hardcore conservative on education and national defense. In the spiritual world, some of us are Christians, some Hebrew, while others claim other belief systems. Even nonbelievers believe in something, if it is only themselves. 
 My point is this, we are all unique in the way we think, what we believe in, and in the things we are drawn to. In the political sense, though different, we all have our reasons for being a part of this conservative movement we have come to identify with; some because the Republican Party is good for business, some because being a republican is a family tradition. For the grassroots members, which is the soul of the party, we joined this party because we actually believe in the core principles it was originally founded on. Some here this evening may not even be republicans, but rather independent patriots and freedom lovers. But that is alright because we are all unique.
 Differences we will always have, my friends, but there are times we must put our differences aside and unite for a common cause. If you remember world history, ancient Greece was once a divided nation state. Each Greek state was a separate nation. Most of them got alone, while others had issues with the other, some so much that they often went to war with one another. But there was one occasion when Greece was threatened by Persia (which is now Iran), and the individual Greek nations realized that it was in their best interest to unite to defeat the Persian invaders. And that they did, led by the great navy fleet of Athens, and backed up by the most feared and greatest military power in Greek history, the Spartans. United, they defeated the Persians, and beat them badly. Then some time afterwards, they went back to fighting each other.
 If you remember American history, then you know that the thirteen colonies, though both the North and the South were at odds with one another, banned together after a not so great compromise, to form this republic, the United States of America, in declaring their independence.
 My point is this, it is true, “united we stand, divided we fall.” It may be hard for some of us to believe, but the democrats and their liberal/progressive/socialist base, are playing for keeps. This is not a game to them. It is all out warfare, as they attack our religious beliefs, our culture, our traditions, and our rights and freedoms. We had better understand this and respond accordingly. Sure, it will be a great challenge, but for me, God plus one equals a majority. Knowing this, whom shall I fear? Whom shall I be afraid of.
 Speaking of fear, one is left to wonder about this so-called pandemic called Covid. I want to say that if you took the COVID vaccination, I hope it was of your own free will. I say this because this is not about taking the shot, or those who took the shot. This is about the powers that be wanting to find a way in forcing everyone to take the shot. In America, once considered the land of the free, we had choices, backed up by the United States Constitution. We once had leaders who believed in that document and defended every principle within that document. They were never too quick to say, “Hey, buddy, we can’t do that. It ain’t constitutional.”
Sadly, there are those who could care less about what the Constitution says today, as they have deemed their agenda more important than any centuries old document, which I remind you, was written and ratified, to protect the American citizen from big government, and any other entity wanting to trample over citizens rights. To this, I say, government and corporate America, brace yourselves. You are not going to have your way with us without one hell of a fight. We are not North Korea, and we are certainly not Cuba or China. Let their people rise up, as we surely will.
Far too many people have died for the cause of freedom in this country, and far too many have suffered the wrath of government and corporate America when they decided to exercise their Constitutional, and God given, rights. As the saying goes, “Freedom is not free.” Just take a look at the tombstones lined up side by side in our national cemeteries going back to the Revolutionary War. These are gallant men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could live the American Dream, and fiercely defend it, if necessary.
Now, we all know that our former president is no longer commander-in-chief, and he is sorely missed by his followers. Lets face it, whether we agreed with President Donald Trump, or not, he was more than a figurehead. He was a true leader and remains a formidable one. Contrary to those who saw him as being a liability to the Republican Party, this man singularly awakened the average card punching conservative and also brought millions more people legally into the party. I am talking a party it’s elected leadership has shown little interest in promoting our conservative brand and values and bringing more Americans into the fold.
 For whatever reason, the inside the Beltway Establishment mob, conspired to be a resistance movement against Donald Trump and the needed changes he wanted to bring to the nation, in addition to his efforts to drain the SWAMP. And true to form, they went after him. Of course, the Left took the lead, but many RINO republicans played major supporting roles in bringing down this president. This was more than a silent coup d’etat, my friends, this was outright treason.
 The stolen election of 2020 (which left-wing news organizations are quick to proclaim is false and without merit), left some in our party dazed by what we witnessed, and shocked by the degree and extent of corruption leading up to the election, during the election, and after the election. That our government, at all major levels, failed us, stunned us, leaving us all scratching our heads, and wondering how truly deep is the Deep State.
 In light of our government institutions’ betrayal, there are many who feel that the Republican Party is history. Just plain done! They say that we must divest ourselves from the very party that has defended, and has proven overtime to be more protective of, and more adherent to, the core principles this republic was founded on more than any other political party.
 Sadly, it is the Democrat Party leadership, and their buddies in the Republican Establishment, which seeks to destroy these founding principles. Some on our side are convinced that we must start anew and create a third political party. Others say that Trump should not run again, while his supporters cannot wait for him to announce his return. A few do not seem to know which way we should go.
 To this I say, in the face of great adversity, President George Washington did not quit, nor did President Abraham Lincoln, when things were not going well in this country’s struggles. Generals George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, George Patton, and Admirals William “Bull” Halsey, Jr., Ernest King and Chester Nimitz, never gave up. None of them ever capitulated. Instead, they forged on. But today, we have those among us who are adamant that we should abandon the ship named the Republican Party. Keep in mind, the Republican Party is an organization for which we can come together and push our pro-American agenda. It is not a social club or a organization we pledge our allegiance to. Our allegiance are with God, family, and country. However, the Republican Party remains the one political vehicle with clout and a long record of accomplishments, by which we can do battle in the arena of ideas, philosophies, and policies.
 I say, let’s look at the real problem. You do not see members of the Democrat Party running away from their party, or their party’s name, just their nefarious and corrupted past. So, the problem is not in the party name, although the left has done a masterful job of defining those identify with the republican name. As outraged citizens, we have to put a stop to that.
 Most of us know that the problem lies with our republican leadership. They have failed us. What was supposed to be our interest they served, became self-interest that they served, along with a lust for power, and a need to influence and control those they swore to protect and serve.
 So, if our leadership is the problem, we ought to start there and correct the problem. We do this by firing those whose self-interest is greater than the people and the nation’s best interest. They must also be held accountable under the same justice system the ordinary citizen is subject to.
 As for creating a third political party, just remember the name Henry Ross Perot and his Reform Party. His entry into the election allowed William Jefferson Clinton and Al Gore to ascend to the presidency and vice presidency. Is this the outcome we want in our next election? I say we regroup, renew our commitment to our republic, and our party, and reinvigorate the enthusiasm we felt and displayed during the Trump years.
 Yes, the man could be abrasive and a mouthful. But let me say this much, Trump’s supporters understood that he was human, and being human, he was flawed. Outside of that, he was a staunch patriot, and a fighter. He was a true stalwart in the effort to save this country from the tyranny, oppression, and imposition, of the left. Yes, his followers supported him and because our party lacked a fighter and warrior for decades who could run circles around liberals, while leaving them in a panic. For them, Trump was, and remains, a viable threat to their nefarious agenda.
 It is no secret that the left never quits. This is why I urge us all to remain united, stand united, and conduct ourselves in a way that is obvious to the left, that we are united, when we go toe to toe, and round after round, with them and their socialist agenda, which remains the biggest threat to our country’s future. I ask that you do not give up the ship.
 Once again, we must decide if we are going to stand up and fight the forces of evil, or submit to their evil whims. Now, whether others offer to join me, or not, in this fight, I will continue to stand up to these forces, and alone if I have to. I will never capitulate. I will never surrender. So, while we still can, let us unite.
 In closing, I am inviting all republicans, independents, libertarians, conservative democrats, and other freedom lovers who want to preserve the freedoms and liberties we are rapidly losing, to join forces, much like the Greeks had the courage to do, and beat back this affront to our republic. And once we are victorious, let’s not ever allow the left to define who we are again… Never, I say! Thank you!
