Patriots, snap out of it! America too extraordinarily precious to surrender!
By Lloyd Marcus

My late Mama instructed, "Never put your business in the street." Due to the extremely serious situation in which we find our country today, I must share my personal testimony (put my business in the street) to save America.

In 1993, I quit my 15 year position at an ABC affiliate TV station in Baltimore to pursue a new career in music. At that time, callers on the Rush Limbaugh show were losing their jobs to down-sizing. Rush encouraged them to view it as an opportunity to pursue their dreams. Inspired and with Mary's blessings, I quit my position, despite being in line for department head.

In short, Mary and I lost everything — home, cars and savings. On numerous occasions, we were financially down-for-the-count with no hope in sight. Every time, God came to our rescue with just enough to keep us going. During our several years "wilderness experience," Mary and I grew in character, wisdom and gratitude. But most of all, we learned to trust God.

So while I am in solidarity with the frustration of fellow patriots across America regarding the reelection of Obama, the surrender of the Republicans, the transformation of what it means to be an American and the deterioration of our culture, I MUST continue fighting to restore/take back America!

I can not and will not join in your hopelessness and surrender.

My firm resolve and optimism are rooted in the Word of God. Galatians 6:9 "And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up."

I can not tune out the news and allow an evil Godless liberal Administration and mainstream media to treat the Constitution like toilet paper and ravish our culture. Edmund Burke said, "The only thing needed for evil to prosper is for good men to do nothing."

Patriots, along with myself, you are good men and women whom God has prepared for such a time as this — to save America. You fought valiantly over the past four years. I totally understand and share your disappointment, anger and sadness for our country.

However, sticking your heads in the sand, is not the answer. For me to do so would feel like me telling God, "I no longer trust You. Thus, I will not continue the mission you called me to fulfill." For me, such a decision is impossible.

I am Chairman of a new PAC, Conservative Campaign Committee https://secure.donationsafe.com/ccc , to fight back with TV ads and etc.

Brother and sister patriots, come back — get back into the battle. America is too extraordinarily precious to do otherwise. We can not simply allow them to "have it"!
