Hello Folks !

We hope this Common Ground will serve the entire Traditional American Movement, all of the many groups and individuals who are working to right the "Ship of State" and recapture the dream that is America.

All of us have gathered into local or regional or national groups to cuss and discuss our complaints and common demands. Much like the "Committees of Correspondence and Safety" of pre-revolutionary times, our groups have done much to spread the message to all we can reach. We have gathered together in huge rallies that have proven the worth and reality of this historic citizen uprising.

There hasn't been much in the way of inter-group discussions yet. The time is upon us now. The movement must find a way to a common voice on main issues. We must find a way to talk together without "leadership issues" and turf protection getting in the way of the common mission. Our strength is in our individuality. Each American citizen has something to contribute, if only to help refine what others say.

We hope that this "Neutral Ground" will provide a forum for members of all of the groups to gather to discuss priorities, tactics, and action for the entire movement to consider. If we meet here we can better coordinate the timing and tactics and most important demands so that this movement has a stronger, undiluted voice.

The only rules here are civility and selflessness, honor and the courage of your convictions. Leave egos at the door for another time. Talk of making leaders is for later. Leaders will appear in time. Now we must focus on the mission before us and work to retake OUR Nation and prove once more that WE will NOT be RULED !!

Well I believe that some folks even here have had to suffer over the seeming silence and indifference to some mighty troubling trends in America for quite a while. Some have been slow to recognize the troubling warning signs; while other have been treated like freaks on the fringe for sounding the alarm early and often. Fortunately one good sign of some common ground that we can hang our hats on now is the rally cry for America to WAKE UP! The tea party movement shows not everyone was sleeping or confused or apathetic. Unfortunately the sparks that have ignited action in our populous unparalleled in our lifetimes are due to radical and drastic un-American behavior's and agenda's by those that have weaseled themselves into office and undeserved positions of power. These are not people of high character, wisdom or morals, and they are against most of that which Americans value.

Nevertheless, the wake up call has begun. It seems to be universally accepted and is independent of dependence on leaders for us to believe in. The evidence of the deceitful manipulations of the people, and the perilous positions of free enterprise and personal liberty are readily seen due to the liberating and lightening fast warning network called the internet. This despite a complicit, and dangerously irresponsible former warning institution known as the mainstream media morphing into a degenerate propaganda arm for the ruling class.

But it not merely enough to wake up enough to recognize the obvious problems in time to halt them short term, we must also continue to educate and warn of the systemic cultural changes designed by the left to incrementally and continuously ratchet society into their mindset and so accept their alternative corrupt perceptions of reality over truth and the traditional American values and principles.

These common battles will not be fought in a central national battlefield but rather locally in our communities and neighborhoods where people meet face to face and reinforce the strength of our families and our faith and our morality and reality. In our schools and local offices for city and county utilities etc.

The awakening must be a complete new awareness of and rejection of the insanity and destructive nature of the progressives.

Again you are correct in that it begins and will be determined by the individual who acquired from a superior force both a heart and a brain to make reasoned decisions unique to mankind. Those faculties must be employed to strip power from the hands of the pretenders and restore it to decent , honest, wise and honorable patriots who know that we the people are the masters and they have been temporarily delegated an awesome responsibility that they must exercise always to the best of their ability. And maybe we can all agree that we all need to be there to watch them to make sure that they are.

I remember as a young child saying that young child phrase of "You`re not the boss of me" to punks, bullies and others that wanted to lead or rule me. In many cases that led to a fight. I did not want to be ruled or bossed around back then and I sure as hell do not want to be ruled nor bossed around now that I am older. Not by the government nor anybody else.

Each of us has our own set of rules we follow in life. That is what makes us unique. But it is time we put petty differences aside to join together to fight a common enemy.

Right now we face the most perilous time of our lives for sake of our great country. We are being ripped apart and put asunder by powerful people with agendas. While the grassroots groundswell of Americans have recognized this socialist agenda and in many ways a totalitarian one we are not laser focused on the target so to speak.

The Tea Party Movement has created many great things but it's inherant flaw is that it is spread out and incoherent on it's focus. We have no leader and that is the way it should be to avoid personal attacks but that is also a hindrance to the movement as a whole. Having no centralized leadership means we then lack in both focus between the groups and effectively targeting our enemies. While we dont need a leader as each of you are leaders we do need a centralized clearing house for all individuals and groups to meet and partake in healthy discussion and debate over what our goals are and how best to proceed in accomplishing them!

I cannot tell you how many times another Tea Party group put on an event close by to me that I was not able to attend because I did not know about it till after it was over! I am in the loop but the dispensing of information is horrid because it does not come from a centralized place.

We cannot be effective as a movement if we continue to practice this "My Group is Better Than You're" group mentality. This type of ego trip thinking will be the ruin of our common cause if we do not combine forces to face the enemy as a group effort instead of splintered cells where each is heading in it's own direction with no common target.

We hope to correct this flaw. By being a centralized area for others to unite and to disseminate the information to others without all the ego's getting in the way.

We are splintered, fractured, and divided in many cases. We walk behind a thin veiled mentality of "My group is better than your group" train of thought when we should be all on common ground focusing on trying to save our country from others that wish to turn it into a third world order. It is not the "New World Order" it is the "Third World Order" that the socialists want for us and our Republic.

It is time that we as members of differing Tea Party groups and other freedom loving groups stand together as one voice to air common ideals and share common goals to more define our focal point on our enemies. We do not have the luxury of time on our side.

The bully thugs, corrupt politicians, liberal lapdog media outlets and others are just waiting to knock our lights out and rip our freedom away. They have lost ouch with mainstream America and they desperately want to "Be the Boss Of Us".

We must unite on common ground and fight them with the rallying cry of,

This was attempted and appeared to be on its way to success in one particular instance. The error in its failure was the effort to become a political power force in its own right as the individual group rather than a collection of individuals within that group. If that makes any sense.

I believe that's where they've all fallen short to this point-each wanting to "be" that one powerful voice for the movement and each creating their own "leader for power" within it, making decisions the individual members are not in agreement with and/or know nothing about. That's exactly what the government is doing to us. Is it not?

I believe we can collect together within a group that has no power driven purpose behind it other than to offer a forum for the networking and connections necessary to further the people's agenda and retake this nation and will do what I can in my limited power to help in this effort.

So far we are on the same page. The idea is simple common sense and the reason for talking among all groups is intuitively seen by anyone active. Human Nature leads to both good and bad action. Self elevation is natural and attempts to garner power are instinctive.

We are adult Traditional Americans. We must return to the tradition of individual sovereignty and high moral character. The guides are historic. Review the principles that made OUR Nation great and apply them to our discussions here. This is about the reverence we all hold for the dream, the ideal that America is and why we have justifiable pride in Americans.

We are all Traditional Americans and WE will NOT be RULED by false servants and poor motives.

Common Ground for me is shared values.

The reason the left is in so much trouble is that they have walked away from values that most of us share.

The problem that the left has experienced is that they have walked so far off the edge that folks can now clearly see that they do not share common values.

The racist card, extremist card, right to choose card, have all failed.

The left in it's double speak nonsense has confused 'ruled' and governed'

Many who were paying no attention now clearly see and have identified this brand of Federal Anarachy and the exception of do as i say not as I do, and everday citizens like me and many others do not want thier personal choices made by the state.

The left has overstepped and misread their mandate.

That happens when you become ethically challenged, and you have a deaf ear to your constituents.

Restoring the intent of the Constitution is all Ive ever desired all this time and now perhaps it may happen if only enough of us can see that all must sacrifice to do so.

The great members of this movement want the same thing, Rhodes. Some of the "Leaders" have become personally ambitious but, the majority of the members in every group are all singing the same song in their own voices. We hope to blend the voices into a powerful harmony for America here. We will by doing it right together and this common ground will help.
