THE GATHERING

The following is from http://www.glennbeck.com/.

It references a "get-together" many conservative Americans are having Friday, March 13, 2009 at 5:00 PM Eastern Time, to watch a special edition of the Glenn Beck Program on Fox News.

Thousands will be joining in restaurants, hotels, meeting places, churches and other venues, to demonstrate to each other that we are not alone, and to demonstrate to non-conservatives that we are not just a flash-in-the-pan, but are many in number.

It's called (From the website):


We Surround Them FRIDAY!


Do you watch the direction that America is being taken in and feel powerless to stop it?

Do you believe that your voice isn’t loud enough to be heard above the noise anymore?

Do you read the headlines everyday and feel an empty pit in your stomach…as if you’re completely alone?

If so, then you’ve fallen for the Wizard of Oz lie. While the voices you hear in the distance may sound intimidating, as if they surround us from all sides—the reality is very different. Once you pull the curtain away you realize that there are only a few people pressing the buttons, and their voices are weak. The truth is that they don’t surround us at all.

We surround them.

So, how do we show America what’s really behind the curtain? Below are nine simple principles. If you believe in at least seven of them, then we have something in common. I urge you to read the instructions at the end for how to help make your voice heard.


The Nine Principles

1. America is good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

You Are Not Alone

If you agree with at least seven of those principles, then you are not alone.

Please send a digital version of your picture to: wesurroundthem@foxnews.com and then stay tuned to the radio and television shows over the coming weeks to see how we intend to pull back the curtain.

Now I am not polyannish enough to think this is a cure-all for conservatives, but it is a starting place and is a good thing.

If you go to the web site, you can find where groups are meeting in your area and join them, or you can watch the program on Fox News at 5:00 PM, Friday.

Together, we can pull out of this mess!

Day 51 of President BO's War on Achievement.

I'll be watching. Count on it. God bless Glenn Beck. He's another one the Libs are totally intimidated by.

Obama reiterated his call for a "civilian defense corps" yesterday. It's been serious but now it's becoming urgent.

PCC: I'm not certain they're smart enough to know when to be intimidated.

CB: Do the words: Gestapo; SS Troops and KGB have any meaning to President BO?
