To say that the turnout for our February 18 meeting was disappointing would be an understatement. (About 15 people.) I am hoping this was an anomaly and that the fire has not gone out with regard to our desire to make a difference for the future of our beloved country. This low turnout has solidified for me a change I had already been considering in the way I try to communicate our message.
What I mean is that in the past I have taken a positive approach, attempting to encourage us to action through sharing of facts and truths from our history, the Declaration, Constitution and Bible. For the foreseeable future I intend to approach the matter from a negative perspective.
So now, rather than take the positive approach and ask, "Has the American Experiment failed?", then go on and point out that it is still an unanswered question, I will argue from the negative perspective and state, "The American Experiment has failed!", then go on to explain why that is so. I now believe the negative approach will a more realistic and effective way to motivate people to action, which is what I am trying to accomplish by my posts.
From either perspective, the solution is the same. We must get back to the Constitution. As I said, I hope the turnout at our February meeting was just an anomaly and our March 10 meeting will have a much different outcome. Either way, I intend to use this space to communicate the message of MCP as long as this forum is available to me and as long as the Lord gives me breath and a keyboard. My first "negative message" will be forthcoming. Stay tuned.
