Who Am I?
My name is Michael Wolfe, and I am an American Citizen who is deeply concerned about the direction my country is headed.
It seems like yesterday it was 2007, and the looming threat of a strong progressive presidency had activated many previously dormant citizens to action. It seemed there was a real hope that the then growing movement would bring about a real reduction in the amount of government in our lives, that we would elect men and women to congress who would not only resist the statist agenda of the establishment and the progressive left, but put forward their own agenda, dedicated to the proposition that that government is best which governs least, that Obama’s spending plans would be halted, and we would ultimately be able to turn the tide.
2012 saw the ascendancy of Mitt Romney to the title of Republican nominee, putting a sour taste in the mouths of many activists because of his parallel agenda in Massachusetts to much of Obama’s own plans. None the less, the house majorities were grown and the senate was taken. Unfortunately, even after Boehner was deposed as speaker, the cave and sign strategy that had enabled Obama’s spending agenda to pass through pretty much unscathed continued. Paul Ryan showed why he was Romney’s running mate.
Forward to now. Hillary donor Donald Trump has all but officially secured the nomination for the Republican party, and is already hinting at significant “walk-backs” to his “previous” beliefs regarding gun rights and government healthcare. It has become clear that the liberty movement has been hijacked. Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and even the venerable World Net Daily have succumbed to Donald’s appeal to win- to win at all costs, even to the abandoning of those things that appeared to differentiate the Republicans from the Democrats. Having conducted extensive studies of Obama’s history and followed his movement, I can say that the emotional and soundbyte support which comprised his campaign’s general body is the same type of support that fills Donald Trump’s campaign. Vetting went out the window when he said build the wall. The mainstream conservative movement shows that they were every bit as susceptible to a catch phrases and slogans as their counterparts on the progressive left.
I am simply an advocate for individual liberty. I want to be free to live my life without having my choices dictated by a remote federal government. I do not want to have my meager treasure squandered by that same government in the pursuit of endless war or cronyism or subjugating my fellow citizens or foreign nationals abroad. I want to see this country become a beacon of hope and liberty to those abroad. That our heritage might be ceased to be joined with globalist forces who engage in endless conflict in the middle east, and across the globe. The actions of the post-constitutional government we have allowed to be created do not represent my beliefs and values, nor those of a reasonable minority of my countrymen. Fortunately, my faith remains in God, and not in Washington or Brussels or any of the other man made governments. They will fail, they will lie, they will destroy but God is always true and always faithful.
- Previous Political history –
My political genesis began when I watched Bill Clinton lie to my face on TV. It was after this that I began to question the common myth that liberals were for “the little guy.” I began to study American history (thanks in no small part to my father, a WWII and Civil War buff). Before leaving high school, I was well grounded in my beliefs, though I still had some learning to do regarding the difference between genuine Republican conservatives and RINOs. I graduated Pensacola Christian College in 2006 and came back to Ohio. Thanks to my earlier studies, when Obama came onto the national scene with his presidential bid, it took me little time to come to the conclusion that his belief system was built on one of the worst “failed policies of the past,” namely, that of socialism.
On April 15th, 2009, I joined with many other Americans stepping onto the field of grassroots activism. Attendance at an “Economic Meltdown” hosted by the JBS and subsequent meetings, I gained a more complete understanding of the dangers I was already somewhat familiar with (or, more appropriately saw the things I studied myself verified by men who had studied the matters for much longer than myself), namely the dangers of the federal reserve’s fiat money and the extent to which UN treaties and actions threaten the freedom and sovereignty of the United States. Thanks to involvement with my local 9/12 group, I learned of the importance of local offices, and took a leap of faith in running for the Union County Republican Central Committee, which I won in the spring of 2010. I am positioning myself to become actively involved in the political process to preserve and defend those sacred liberties God has blessed me with as an American.
I oppose: Marxism in all its flavors, fascism, administrative disdain for the life of the innocent unborn, the constant push for laws that diametrically oppose the laws of nature and of nature’s God, and the ever growing power of the executive branch that surpasses all constitutional constraints.
Please join me in praying for the salvation of Barack Obama and for his policies to conform to the Bible and the United States Constitution. Please also join me in working to prevent the social and economic destruction of the United States of America. God had revival in store for Nineveh, but Jonah still had to go and preach. God doesn’t call us to prayer alone [though some have a special ministry of such] but also to action. The Bible says “faith without works is dead.”
