(h/t THE right scoop)

I had the opportunity to attend the Douglas County (GA) Tea Party, but opted to not go.  Douglas County is on the opposite side of traffic-burdened Atlanta from me, and the event started just one hour after work.

Today, I found out that I should have braved I-285’s daunting traffic corridor.  At the end, I’d have been treated to this:

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Indeed, this verse describes precisely what conservatives are on about.  Particularly the line, “Then conquer we must, when our cause is just.”

It describes our fight against Islamic terrorism.  It describes why we take the positions we do with nations like Iran and North Korea.  Why Americans have fought and died along the hills and valleys and in the forests and deserts of six continents and throughout the world’s oceans and seas.  It’s why we’re fighting to stop the spread of socialism and overbearing government into our daily lives.  This is why we support liberty and freedom and oppose tyranny: Because the cause of liberty is just.

This fantastic performance by a man America now knows only as “Lewis”, a former Marine, reminds us that our cause is just.  We will–no, we must win back the House in 2010.  We must win back the Senate and the White House in 2012.  With men like this to remind us of what we are fighting for and strong, truly conservative candidates, we can stop the Left from its aims of destroying everything we hold dear about America.
