We Will Fight...

Now is not a time to be glum or depressed. We lost. Get over it. Now is a time to fight. It is an exciting time, actually a time of great hope and promise. Now more than ever it is important that conservatives be positive, courageous and bold. I am reminded of the words of Winston Churchill in his great speech delivered on June 4, 1940. They were delivered in the context of the menace of Germany and the defense of England, but they can be equally stirring and profound in light of our present situation. Substitute what words you will to make the speech fit our present challenge ( the halls of congress, the courts, the school board, the church, the boardroom, the classroom, etc.)

"We shall fight on the seas and oceans,
We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air,
we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be,
We shall fight on the beaches,
We shall fight on the landing grounds,
We shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
We shall fight in the hills;
We shall never surrender...."
