The Silent Majority

We all have heard about the Silent Majority since the 1960’s but not much is said about them, The “Silent Majority” is a group of people that makes up the majority of the voters, in this country, but does not widely express their views through marches or demonstrations, or even speaking out. For example. This expression and representation was first recorded and used in 1874, but gained much public recognition and respect in the 1960s, when President Richard Nixon claimed that his policies were supported by a majority of citizens who did not bother to make their views known, and he was right! The silent majority is an undetermined large majority of people in a country or group who do not express their opinions publicly. A lot of the readers of Conservative View Point are the same way. The blog receives a lot of emails and letters by postal mail that agree with the articles but they will not make their views made publicly known. What a shame. It is time to stand up and be counted. People need to stand up and be heard before it is too late.
I once wrote { and still do on occasion } articles that could be seen and read at The Daily Times which is located in Salisbury, Maryland. The majority of the comments, from my articles, I received were from liberals and they were very negative. I was called a racist, along with many other names that I will not mention here. Some I could not even post. I guess you could call their comments “Politically Correct”, because that is what it amounted to. They just phased their comments somewhat different. Very few conservatives made any comments at all on the blog section, But their support by emails and the postal mail was and still is over whelming. I cannot and will never understand why people will just sit and say nothing when our country is being destroyed, by people who are so far to the left it is impossible to go any farther.
We have a president that calls this country bad every chance he gets. He has people (his czars) that are making policy behind closed doors, We have communist in the government that has been appointed by him. He is friends with terrorist and see himself as a world ruler. We do not know where he was born, anything about his life before he became president. But yet most Americans just go about their daily routines as if everything is great. Where are we as a nation headed to?
Just as we sing the national anthem and pledge allegiance to the flag of this great nation we should also stand and say enough is enough. We want our country back. Obama may think that he has a convincing case, but there is one thing that he did not consider: “THE SILENT MAJORITY”. Let us as Americans go to the ballot box in November and turn this country around. Stan up and be counted!!
