Over the weekend, I was struck by the words of Paul Ryan at a rally in Manassas Virginia.
It was how he opened his comments.
What he said has been the clarion call of conservatives since the 2010 midterm election.
As the music played at each rally announcing Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s running mate, I could help but think…
We need an anthem. No…We need a battle song.
What we DON:T need is a rehashed song bent and twisted to meet the need. Any old song will do if that’s the criteria.
What we need is a song, written by someone who feels the way WE do. A song which expresses OUR clarion call.
We need a song which speaks directly to US, of who WE are and to what WE must do.
It needs to be a song OF the People, BY the People and FOR the people.
That’s why, when I heard Paul Ryan’s opening words in Manassas on Saturday…I knew EXACTLY what our song should be.
If you are not yet familiar with Ava Aston…You should be.
A while back, I found the song that she wrote and it shook me to the core.
