Yes, it is time to take America back, from the liberal politi cians who are attempting to erase every evidence of God from public life, from gov ern ment officials who hide their radical, anti"'Christian bigot ry behind a twist ed view of "the separation of church and state," from gay and lesbian radicals who not only claim the right to lead their Godless lifestyle, but demand that we support this abominable behav ior, from the radical fem i nists whose "right to choose" has caused the murder of mil lions of inno cent unborn little babies, from the militant left which is the fount of all evil--take her back from every group or individ ual that refuses to recog nize our beloved nation for what it truly is--a nation under God! [Falwell]

We are the only society in history that says that power comes from God to you . . . and if you don't tell the truth about the role of God and the cen trality of God in America, you can't explain the rest of our civiliza tion. I look forward to the day when a be lief in God is once more at the center of the defini tion of being an American [Gingrich, 1].

As to the future, if you think about the notion that the great chal lenge of our lifetime is first to imagine a future that is worth spending our lives getting to, and then, because of the technolo gies and the capabilities we have today, to get it up to sort of a virtual state, al though that's done in terms of actual levels of so phistication, all that's done in your mind.

And that takes leadership. Most studies of leadership argue that lead ers actually are acting out past decisions. The problem when you get certainty with great leaders is that they have al ready thor oughly envisioned the achievement, and now it is just a matter of implementa tion. And so, it is very different. And so in a sense, virtuality [sic] at the mental level is some thing I think you find in lead ership over historical periods. But in addi tion, we are not in a new place; it is just becom ing harder and hard er to avoid the place where we are [Gingrich, 2].

In fighting this fight to avoid this place, we face an increas ing ly mili tant, radical, socialist left. And this is how we are going to win the war against this left. We will use the same strategy Gen eral Douglas MacArthur em ployed against the Jap a nese in the Pacific in World War II: by"'pass their strong"'holds, then sur round them, isolate them, bombard them, then blast the individu als out of their power bunkers with hand"'to"'hand com bat. The battle for Iwo Jima [2] was not pleasant, but our troops won it. The battle to regain the soul of America won't be pleasant either, but we will win it [Robertson].

Yes, with your help and God's blessing we will win it. Thank you and good night.

A Connie Conroy Note (December 27, 2004)

We did it! We pulled it off! We got the Prez a good speech, a great speech, if I may say so myself. And after all those drafts he didn't like at all, too. Trying, honestly, honest ly, to come up with a new way to say the same old thing he had been saying over and over in the campaign. And so, what did we do? We went back to some tried and true stuff from our "Pa tron Saints," (if I may say so, reveal ing my Catholic back ground -- don't let any of the true Fundy Minis ters hear me say ing anything like that!): Pat Buchanan, Pat Robert son, Gary Bauer, Jerry Falwell, the Newt Man. [3]

Just took some of their best stuff, threw it together, nobody was the wiser, especially the Prez, and presto! The best speech mon ey could n't begin to buy. And I'll tell you, after old Carney, I think that this young guy is going to be fun!

Author's Commentary

The Hague Heritage

On Tuesday, November 2, 2004, Jefferson Da vis (J.D.) Hague was elected as the 45th President of the old United States. He was a great-grandnephew of the pre"'World War II Mayor of Jersey City, NJ, Frank Hague, a man who once said (Pe ter):

"You hear about constitutional rights, free speech and the free press. Every time I hear these words I say to myself, 'That man is a Red, that man is a Communist!' You never hear a real American talk like that."

J.D.'s father, "Big Daddy Hague," was a truck driver who sported the old Confederate States of America flag on the radiator of his 22-wheeler's tractor, and carried a loaded sawed"'off double"'barreled shot gun underneath the passen ger seat. It was there, Big Daddy would confide in friends, "to protect myself from the niggers." His choice of name for his second"'born son came as no surprise to his friends, espe cially since his first"'born son "Nat" had been named after Confederate Gen er al Nathan B. Forrest. This man's principal claim to fame was that a year after the end of the First Civil War he had founded the viru lently anti"'black terrorist organization known as the Ku Klux Klan.

Big Daddy happened to be a passionate reader. His taste in books ranged from those carried in the Paladin Press catalog (1991, focusing on guns, explosives, and survivalism) to those carried in the National Van guard Books catalog (1993, featuring anti-Semitism, racism, glorifi cation of Hitler's Germany, and children's books).
