Why we must win


Raising of the Cavalier standard, Nottingham 1642

I have been silent not for lack of things to say, but for too much, indeed. The clash of ideologies, the battle between the traditionalists and the liberals is continuing, and thus far, it is too close to predict a winner. National and Labour are neck-and-neck, see-sawing rapidly. September 17 is Election Day, and both sides are beating the drums to summon the faithful. My own contributions to the ammunition can be seen on my blog, and what is at stake can be seen here. National has made up the ground it lost last time, and looks set to take several rural electorates in the South, which is an important symbollic rejection of Labour by the heartland, and there are encouraging signs that a Tory victory is at least possible, something unimaginable three years ago. Even given National's legendary capacity for pointing a rifle at their feet and pulling the trigger repeatedly, I am hopeful that we can shake this rotten government to its foundations, and turn the course of our decline into a South Pacific Banana republic. Our Australian and British friends are ashamed of us, and rightly. Our American brethren have not forgotten our betrayal of ANZUS. Our Canadian fellow-travellers in the Liberal Party look upon us as a co-belligerent in the service of vice, corruption and plain evil. We are departing into the wilderness, with our new friends. France, Belgium, Germany and the Asian countries. We have rejected our heritage. God have mercy on us. We must stop the rot. We must strengthen what remains. We must, and we shall, be a country of heroes again.

Everything I believe in, the maintenance of family life, the place of the sacred altar of God, and the Throne of the Queen herself, is at stake this election. The traitors, haters and wreckers must be stopped. The barbarians are shaking the very foundations of our culture. Let us fight, and shake them to their souls.

"Whatever the King's subjects consider as most dear and sacred, the stability of our happy constitution, the security and honour of His Majesty's crown, and the preservation of our laws, our liberty and our religion, are all involved in the issue of the present contest, and our zeal and exertions will be in proportion to the importance, magnitude and value of the sacred objects for which we have to contend"

William Pitt the Younger,
Responding to the declaration of war by Jacobin France, 1793.
