A Time for Boldness: Calling All Conservative Constitutionalists

God Bless America, Land that I Love, Stand beside her and guide her, thru the night, with a Light from above...

Our Founding Fathers

Our Founding Fathers

Thank God for these Bold Americans

The Drafters and the Signers of the Declaration of Independence had to step out of their comfort zone and become to speak.

They had to become emboldened in order to distance America from tyranny, they had to act and act boldly they did!

Our Founders were conservative and yet they were compelled to rebel...and, oh boy did they ever, our fight for freedom was the rebellion of all rebellions -

Since we speak of boldness, each and every time we speak of our Founding Fathers, I will boldly use a term used regularly by our former President -

our Founding Fathers rebelled and they rebelled, "bigly"

Two of those bold men, who would eventually be Signers of the Declaration of Independence, John Hancock and Richard Henry Lee...stood tall, did not back down and were instrumental in moving us closer to Independence.

Under British Rule, the Stamp Act went into effect.

Virginian Richard Henry Lee initiated a boycott of the Act and Massachusetts native John Hancock wrote a letter to Parliament stating that it was a bunch of b.s. (or something equally adequate and powerful for the times)

Parliament repealed the Act in record time....


Thank God for all of the men that put their lives on the line, as they fought against tyranny, cut ties with England, declared Independence and eventually signed the Declaration of Independence.

Although British armies were stationed close by, these men boldly went to a place, where there would be no coming back!

They knew there would be hell to pay, but they did not back down, they believed in the fight, they believed in freedom for all Americans and so...they went and fought for it!

They boldly went where our elected officials of today...rarely ever go.

Today, both Parties seem very comfortable with the status quo, they don't seem to recognize any longer what the Founders meant by ''limited Government."

They are all about what they want, what they think they can get with their status, not what is in the best interest of this Country and her people.

They back down too easily from a fight; making deals, not necessarily with a publicized handshake, but rather with an inconspicuous wink and a nod. Compromising in ways which often go against their Constituents wishes, ultimately hurting their Constituents, rather than representing them and their best interest.

As for those who have such a difficult time recognizing the sacrifice of our Founding Fathers and only recognize the defiance of their actions and their treasonous ways, I simply say....

I am so glad that you were not there and that it was not left up to you!

Our Founders were obviously Constitutionalists, but they were also Conservative

The only ones that ever have a problem with massive spending monstrosities, liberal agendas and the like, (you know, those expensive things which go hand in hand) are a handful of Constitutional Conservatives.

But, sadly their numbers pale in comparison to the numbers of the establishment-types (the swamp dwellers) those in office for selfish reasons, for power, for every reason, but the right reason(s)….spending like crazy!

You know, those (R's and D's) that are interchangeable, you can't tell the difference?

So, nothing ever changes!

Yes, we hoped, prayed and believed that Trump would, as our founders, be a difference maker and, no doubt, he was.

Certainly, more-so than a Clinton Administration would have ever been!

But, he needed help, he needed men and women that would always have his back, when he was acting in the best interest of America and he seldom had it.

It was the same handful of Constitutional Conservatives and unfortunately for him...and for us, there aren’t enough!
There aren’t enough who consistently have the backs of, the American people!

It will take a lot more than a handful, America needs a lot more of them.

America‘s children must be educated about the significance of our U.S. Constitution. It is imperative that they know the why and the how and completely understand how that precious content, protects them from tyrannical Government.


A Time for Boldness

Some of you will remember when Sarah Palin (Governor of Alaska) was the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee.

I remember being very excited about the potential of a female Vice-President.

Not just because she was female, but because she was conservative, a staunch supporter of our Constitution and so very gutsy and bold, she refused to back down, no matter what was thrown her way....and there was a lot thrown at this woman!

It was an exciting time for women, especially conservative women!

In the past, there had always been great hoopla when Democratic women were nominated for President or Vice-President.

But, it was a far different story when Governor Palin ran.

She was 'labeled' early on....

not for having a backbone or for being gutsy or bold, none of that, she was labeled a ”radical right-winger”.

The "winger" was put through the wringer!

Criticized and critiqued continually without end, much like the spunky Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kaleigh McEnany, Donald Trump's Press Secretaries, were.

Palin was portrayed regularly on Saturday Night Live, by Tina Fey, as a complete and total dimwit. In fact, dialogue which would be used in a skit on Saturday Night Live, would make its way into the headlines...people confused her with the character and began to think Sarah Palin had said things/done things, which had only been said/done in these SNL skits.

I ask rhetorically, who does that make dimwitted?

Same thing with other conservative women, such as Michele Bachmann, Mia Love and Marsha Blackburn, they too have been treated very unfairly by the press.

Most recently, Kristi Noem, Governor of South Dakota, has been vilified for taking the bold steps to keep her State open, while keeping it as safe to live in, as is possible. For that, for not falling in line and victim to, the over the top, freedom-robbing Covid-19 ‘pandemic’ policies so many lackluster Governor’s did, she was mocked and criticized.

Much like our wonderful conservative Governor, here in the State of Florida, we too have pretty much stayed wide open through it all and have fared much better than the easily compliant, weak, failed, so-called leaders, of other States.

Winners dare to act with boldness!

Governor Ron DeSantis, President Donald Trump and Governor Kristi Noem

Be a Hancock...

I have come a long way since my initial support of Ted Cruz during the 2016 Primaries.

I and every other Conservative-American, are forced to compromise over and over again, accept the results time and time again.

I came to appreciate President Trump and believe that he ran for all of the right reasons and governed in all the right ways.

He belonged {still belongs} right where he was, at this moment in time.

I did not believe that initially, but I do now!

I've had it with liberalism and the swamp dwellers and the limitless power they’ve had and have to wonder what the future of America looks like, if we cannot rein in the massive spending and the corruption that never ceases.

I've had it with the illegal entry into America that never ceases (when Democrats are in control) we've all seen the footage circulating of the Rio Grande illegal crossings...

I have had my fill of those with a weak spine, so called leaders of this Country that wouldn’t know courage or boldness if it smacked them right upside the head and between the eyes, simultaneously.

I've said it more than once, if I would see that Trump stumbled, I would call him on it

Who, on the left, in the Democratic Party, is calling Joe Biden out for being in a constant state of stumble?

Who, other than the Constitutional Conservatives, question anything he does with boldness or questions his dictatorial behavior at all?

We must elect leaders who are strong on enforcing our immigration laws and strong on border defense and our welfare in general, they must not falter!

There is no longer room for error!

The President, members of the Senate and of the House, Governors, those of you who feel called to run for office, I implore you...

be a Hancock, be a Richard Henry Lee, don't back down, when your moments come and Lord knows, they are going to come!

~ Be bold

God Bless and Keep these United States of America

Yeah it's a shame that we can count true Constitutional Conservatives, on 1 (maybe 2) hands. Not enough! from upstate, NY on May 04, 2018:

John McCain and other leading Republican's allowed Sarah Palin to be mocked and even joined in themselves This the very definition of gutlessness, these politicians need to pay a steep price.

What bothers me also is Republicans who make show votes on issues that have no chance of passing so they can appear conservative. The Omnibus bill is the one that really matters and they end up pushing it through anyway.

My Republican Congress women seemed to appear conservative but then signed off on everything the liberals wanted during the Obama years. We have to make sure they folks don't get reelected!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 24, 2018:

Thank you Tim, I appreciate you and my other friends/followers so much.

Write on!

A. B. :)

Tim Truzy from U.S.A. on March 24, 2018:

Truthfully, I have no idea what R.H.L. would have done, if anything, to his great, great, whatever, R.E.L.

I agree. I like to let my children reach their own conclusions about issues. It increases dedication, especially when it comes to our history.

I make sure they know we all played a part.

By the way, you were right, my friend. You said you would call Trump out on things where he was wrong; that's the dedication I know from Abwilliams.

I hope the children I work with show half as much conviction toward our nation.

As always, thank you for a well thought out and written article.


Your friend,


A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 24, 2018:

Don't you love our history Tim? Awesome so often, imperfect at times, but like no other, in a class of our own.

I want our children to learn more about our History and to know more about the many incredible individuals that gave so much (in many cases everything) throughout our relatively short history.

I hate so much that they are often in indoctrination, when in class, rather than learning, as school was intended.

Tim Truzy from U.S.A. on March 24, 2018:

In one of my history classes, we had a great debate. Would Richard Henry Lee, one of the Founders, had systematically, with extreme prejudice, put his Founding Father's foot up Robert E. Lee, his later ancestor's, you know what. Rebelling is in our genetic make-up as Americans. (We are the country that created rock 'n roll, jazz, roller derby, etc., after all.)

We respect compromise; we don't always get everything we want. Trump wasn't happy about signing the bill. Compromise can make you "feel" that way. However, he understands the government must continue to function as well.

One thing we do not do is practice taxation with some common sense. When the economy is slow, lessen the burden of taxes on the populace. When times are great economically, look at potential increases. This is not popular thinking, I know.

Great article. But later, the Founding Fathers had to address a Whiskey Rebellion due to taxes as well. Should we borrow Richard Henry Lee's foot?



A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 23, 2018:

Well I don't see much to celebrate so....

JOC from Syracuse, NY on March 23, 2018:

Well, both sides got something, but neither side knows restraint. Should we celebrate their bipartisanship or rue their math skills?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 23, 2018:

So the President did not veto this "Yuge" spending Bill, he chose to sign it instead...Disappointed to say the least!

If there are still differences between the two Parties in power, I do not see them.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 23, 2018:

Yes, I agree JOC, they definitely should look closer at areas where they can cut back, but the military shouldn't be the starting place.

JOC from Syracuse, NY on March 23, 2018:

For example, do we really need 174 military bases or installations in Germany or 113 in Japan?

JOC from Syracuse, NY on March 23, 2018:

Don't you think it's time for there to be accountability with some of the ridiculous spending that our military does? I'm all for taking care of the troops, but let's make all parts of government efficient.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 23, 2018:

I have been holding both sides accountable for some time now!

We cannot cut back on military spending, if there is one place that we cannot afford to cut back, it is there!

But, as for funding Planned Parenthood and Sanctuary cities....what the heck!! What other crap is in this mammoth bill? Really Republicans....what's in it for you? What is your deal?

The problems are the "social programs" and "the establishment" getting their way on their little pet projects, etc. (whether they be Republican or Democratic) that must stop!

They've all lost their way!

JOC from Syracuse, NY on March 23, 2018:

I wonder if we could hold both sides accountable for once. Reign in wasteful military spending and keep social programs to moderate levels. Blaming only one side in this debacle of a spending bill is part of the problem of our current political situation.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 23, 2018:

Yes Eric we are 'progressing' ourselves straight over a cliff, with very few yelling "Cliff!"

I debated about using the word "Revolution" in this Hub, Honestly, I have had second thoughts about many words/phrases used in many of my Hubs.

Nowadays, every word is so closely monitored and scrutinized.

I usually go for it without revision, because who am I to ask for boldness, if I cannot be bold (have a backbone) myself? :)

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 23, 2018:

The lack of backbone shows our American decay far more than anything else. If you stand for nothing you will fall for anything. My community is active and vibrant with all the good stuff like reduction in crime and great schools. But my state is a madhouse of goofiness spending -- but no serious debt because of the high taxes. Living in a "progressive" state is challenging. And the same for the U.S.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 23, 2018:

Congress has let us down....once.again!

President Trump, do it...use your VETO power!

Nancy and Chuck are practically dancing in the streets, that tells me all that I need to know about the Omnibus Bill!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 22, 2018:

I applaud Rand Paul much more often than I disagree with him.

He, like our Founders, is all about limited Government.

JOC from Syracuse, NY on March 22, 2018:

I actually applaud Rand Paul on this issue. He seems to be the only person who cares about balancing a budget.
