Radarsite's Mission Statement: Updated

A post-election update:

There may come a time in the life of an individual, or in the life of an entire people when they are offered a great choice. Fundamentally, this choice may be relatively simple: either to honestly accept responsibility for their own lives and their own actions, and seek to improve their lives through hard work and disciplined endeavor; or to make a different (and often the easier choice), one which avoids responsibility for their own lives and their own actions and seeks to improve their lives through viewing themselves as victims, victims of an evil and omnipotent oppressor, the prima facie cause of their suffering. From Black America: The Great Choice


On November 4, 2008 America made its choice and now we must live with the consequences of this fateful choice. It is Radarsite's opinion that this was a horrific mistake and that we will suffer greatly because of it. Our mission will stay the same, with this one major readjustment. We can no longer attempt to influence our readers against voting for BHO, it's a done deal. But we can and will watch his every move like a hawk. And we will accord him that same measure of respect that the liberals accorded to President George W. Bush: we will not refer to him as President Obama, but just Obama, and sometimes, just BHO. After suffering through 8 years of vitriolic anti-Bush rhetoric that's the very least we can do. rg 11/6/08

Radarsite is a conservative pro-American, pro-Western, pro-Israel, pro-military website. Radarsite was developed as an attempt to counter the self-loathing, self-destructive leftist anti-Americanism rampant in today's Western culture. Our skewed MSM is overflowing with it. To be considered knowledgeable in today's ungrateful topsy-turvy world one must be loudly and proudly anti-American. Patriotism is now to be considered some lower form of life, a weakness demonstrating a lack of intellectual capacity or historical awareness. In this current environment it takes more courage to be patriotic than to be a dissenter. In fact, if one is unabashedly patriotic, one automatically becomes a dissenter.
America and the democratic West are presently at war-- and not just in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Western world is in the midst of great cultural upheavals, virtual civil wars that will ultimately determine the nature of our civilizations for decades to come. Our traditional democratic Judeo/Christian values are arguably in more peril at this particular moment in history than ever before. We are even more imperiled because half of our Western societies refuse to acknowledge this imminent peril and hide under a blanket of lies and euphemisms.
Daily we are besieged by enemies from both without and within. We are battling against ruthless fanatics who seek to dominate or destroy us, and against delusional multiculturalists who would gladly give our great societies away. We are fighting against terrorists, collaborationists, propagandists, appeasers, apologists and deniers. Our enemies have innumerable resources at their disposal and innumerable venues from which to expound their negativities. They find themselves warmly welcomed at our most prestigious universities, in the hallowed halls of Congress, and at trendy Beverly Hills cocktail parties.
But not here.
Here we still believe in the American dream. Here we fight back against those who would destroy that dream. Many of our readers are veterans, all are patriots. We do not come together here to debate the merits of America, but to protect her. We have studied the issues and have worked hard to understand just what is at risk. Our opinions are not borrowed, but are the results of our studies. We defend our opinions only so long as we believe them to be true. The moment we begin to doubt them, we will abandon them.
I am so immensely proud of our readership. I believe we have accumulated some of the most intelligent, knowledgeable and most honest writers and thinkers on the web. We believe in America and we believe in each other. And we will not give in to negativity and despair, no matter how popular it becomes.

I humbly thank you all for your loyal encouragement and support. - rg

  2. Well said Roger. Why should The Big Stench, BO, expect anything less than the left gave to President Bush? It’s going to be an uphill battle for all of us that truly love America.

  3. I like you will not stand idly by, but keep their feet to the fire. And we will work on 2010. Making an attempt to take back the Congress.

    We will survive this mess the nation has gotten us into.

  5. Roger, I thank you and congratulate you.
    I thank you for providing this forum so others may share with you our concerns.
    I congratulate you for being an exemplar in the spirit of Patrick Henry, Burke, Clay, Webster and Lincoln - to name but a few.
    One in particular comes to mind.
    "O' Tempores! O' Mores!" ("Oh Times! Oh Customs!") as Cicero declared as he was arguing his case against the conspiratorially power greedy Cataline.
    Roger, You carried the message as Cicero a man committed to the Republic.
    In addition he penned to his scribe, Terrence, "De Officiis" ("On Duty").
    Thus, in humility may I dub you "Cicero" which speaks to me as Duty, Honor and Country.
    Ave Cicero Rogerus! Ave!

  6. Sorry it took me so long to get over here Roger, I've been out of town.

    Glad you reiterated so clearly the feelings of many like-minded Americans.

    We begin anew, back to basics, with a core group of old Conservatives and a brand new generation of Conservatives.

    May we grow strong quickly.

  7. In your blog you have just expanded on the words of JFK: " Don't ask what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."

    You have also described the exact situation happening right now in Israel and the words of Cicero which you uqote are so deeply appropriate to our country as well.

    I suddenly don't grieve so much in the knowledge that there are others in the world who feel what I feel about the change happening in the world.

    Perhaps Nostradamus' prediction that within 27 years the Western World as we know it will be taken over one botn in Saudi Arabia - may not come true after all. We have yet another 20 years to go! Let's fight the good fight! Let's love our country, hate war, want peace but not sell the honor of home and country to acquire it. Such a decision would eventually destroy all you hold dear.
    Keep strong!

  8. Applicable to both President Obama and also President Clinton:

    "The great statesmen of the past saw themselves as heroes who took on the burden of their societies' painful journey from the familiar to the as yet unknown. The modern politician is less interested in being a hero than a superstar. Heroes walk alone; stars derive their status from approbation. Heroes are defined by inner values; stars by consensus.....When a candidate's views are forged in focus groups and ratified by television anchorpersons, insecurity and superficiality become congenital."

  9. Hi Roger...Been absent for awhile .. Congratulations on all the avrious recognitions you have received.
    I just received the following Explanation of THE DIFFERENCE...Thought you might enjoy it..
    "I don't think I've ever seen the differences explained any better....


    If a conservative doesn’t like guns, they don’t buy one. If a liberal doesn’t like guns, then no one should have one.

    If a conservative is a vegetarian, they don’t eat meat. If a liberal is, they want to ban all meat products for everyone.

    If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy. A liberal wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.

    If a conservative is homosexual, they quietly enjoy their life. If a liberal is homosexual, they loudly demand legislated respect.

    If a black man or Hispanic is conservative, they see themselves as independently successful. Their liberal counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection.

    If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

    If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels. Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down.

    If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church. A liberal wants all churches to be silenced.

    If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it. A liberal demands that his neighbors pay for his.
    Stay well!
