"In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
– George Orwell, author of "1984"
This past Sunday as I was strolling through the halls of my church, my friend Chad greeted me. He encouraged me to press on in my radio and writing endeavors without compromise. Then he asked if I had ever heard that quote from George Orwell's book "1984." I hadn't. However, hearing it was the boost of energy I needed after feeling so dismayed over the Iran nuke deal, the persecution, rape and murder of Christians by ISIS, and the dismantling of our First Amendment rights in America, as evidenced by Kim Davis, the Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk sentenced to six days in jail for living out her faith.

The world is upside down! America has made a deal with Iran! Stop and think about that! Guaranteeing the leading state sponsor of terror in the Middle East nuclear weapons at the peril of our allies and ourselves. The sanctions we imposed on the mullahs of Iran allowed us to stop their nuclear program at every critical juncture. They were forced to choose between prosperity – as they define it – or nuclear warheads. Thanks to Obama, they'll have both!
Christians are mocked and ridiculed in America while the religion responsible for 9/11 is revered. Obamacare lies continue to mount up. Our economy is in shambles. Unemployment numbers continue to rise but are reported otherwise by an agenda-driven media. Our military has been gutted and abandoned. Planned Parenthood is still partially funded by our federal government, and it appears it will stay that way despite having a Republican-controlled House and Senate. We're the only civilization in the industrial world whose borders are revolving doors – and encourage it. America's 14th Amendment wasn't meant to benefit illegal aliens over its own citizens, yet we can't even get that straight. Personally, I suggest we adopt Mexico's tough immigration laws.
Lastly, according to SpaceandScience.net and Claude Allegre (one of the founding fathers of the man-made global warming theory), the earth is in a cooling cycle, contrary to what current global warming extremists paid for by our federal government tell us. Despite, President Obama's claim that 97 percent of scientists agree that climate change is a real and man-made danger, the actual number is only 1 percent. The truth is over 31,000 scientists have signed a petition stating that there's no scientific evidence that the human release of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane contribute to global warming.
Do you feel discouraged yet? Certainly, I do at times. What's the solution? Truth! Truth, however, is only as good as its source. For me, those truths can be found in the God-inspired Holy Bible and our Judeo-Christian heritage framed by the Constitution. If truth is a revolutionary act, then it's time for us to become revolutionaries. No, not in a Barack Obama, Saul Alinsky type of way, but in a you and I type of way, led by the power of the Holy Spirit. True freedom can never be void of objective truth.

Thursday morning, following the second GOP presidential debate, I had a full schedule: approximately four hours of local television interviews providing my analysis of the debate, and I was slated to give a speech later that evening at a Constitution Day rally, which I did. But when the cameras were out of my face and the speech was complete a void filled me that could've only been satisfied by what I did next:
I got to share my road to conservatism, as a result of my faith, with a black Democratic analyst that also provided his commentary on TV. He was amiable and a good guy. I spoke to him about my faith and true black history in America that he'd never heard before. He shared his concerns with me about the tea party movement and the GOP, and some of his observations were spot on; some were misconceptions. Nonetheless, we didn't hate each other, we listened to each other. At the end of the day he told me some of things I said were causing him to re-evaluate some of his positions. Wow!
Later on that day, before I gave my speech, I got to listen to a pro-Constitution and Christ-centered speech by a millennial that was awe inspiring. Afterward, he and I both stood around to greet some of the audience gracious enough to give us their time. We encouraged each other. It was refreshing. However, we all came to the conclusion that the Judeo-Christian revolution won't happen necessarily within our church walls or at rallies with like-minded people.
It's time for us to become revolutionaries of truth. Leave your political parties behind. Bring your God, your love for your neighbor's well-being and your knowledge of history and liberty, and just talk – and listen. The old adage is still true: "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."
Will you be a revolutionary? Will you use the only proven sources for unity and freedom both spiritually and practically ever known to mankind – the Bible and the Constitution? If you have a pure heart, the truth you share will trump left-wing deceit.
