No secret that Chuck Norris is politically active and a conservative.
In fact he was Smart enough.
When he campaigned for me when I ran for president in 2008.
And he regularly writes a column for town hall dot com chuck and his wife Gina recently recorded a video message.
On why they think this is the most important election of our lifetime.
We are here to talk about a growing concern we all share.
If we look -- history our great country and freedom are under attack.
We're at a tipping point and quite possibly our country as we know it may be lost forever if we don't change the course our country's -- Well here to explain why he's so concerned about the direction of our country is Chuck Norris please welcome.
You and Gina had just.
Put out a very provocative.
Public service announcement that says.
This election puts everything on the line.
What motivated you to say that this is the election of our lifetime.
Well you know 119 -- talking in just talking about the future for our country.
And we know we felt.
-- -- President Obama tried his very best.
He just wasn't good enough.
And other -- years and -- the lack of experience you know like in any profession.
You've got to be experienced what to do.
They like and acting you've got picked a lot of acting courses you know but the thing is is that we need a leader.
That has the experience to lead us to the next four years and so we we realize that our freedom.
In -- is in jeopardy and our country today.
And -- -- and I sit down and wrote that speech in about fifteen minutes.
And saw I was -- the total gym in commercial and so we assess the produces that -- we do this.
PSA and -- -- golf course -- -- filmed it for us that day and that's where it started.
This week during the Democratic National Convention when the big.
How Bob happened over the platform language and god was taken out then -- back -- What did that say to you wish you watched all of that unfold well it just shows how they really think.
You know that they have no.
Reason to believe that god should be -- -- -- part of our society.
And you know and have.
Joseph Biden you know.
As he's given his speech.
You know I gave him four no -- because his -- kept getting longer and longer.
Don't go by and I'm sorry.
You know what he has a lot more afraid if you did you ever have to be -- yeah.
That is for sure.
You you you regularly right.
Articles that appear in town hall dot com and other publications.
And on the Internet.
You've not been afraid to be politically active morning here.
Acting co hearts Clint Eastwood took -- stand.
Not many conservatives do but you have why is it important to you to use the celebrity status that you have to say look.
I have some deep convictions about America and here's what they are.
On -- extremely worried about my children and my grandchildren.
And the thing is if we don't get off this course there were heading right now they're not gonna have a future.
You know we've been there and done that.
But the thing is our kids or grandkids are the ones that we -- worried about and that's why I write these articles weekly is that I've gotten so concerned.
About the future of our country and then if we don't get done up going down -- where a crossroads right now Mike.
And no we can -- -- go to the left path.
Uncontrollable government that dictates everything that goes on in our lives.
-- pick the right path what we limited government and let us dictate what the government does and that's and that's really what my articles are all about.
-- you had a recent -- which you talked about ten reasons why we shouldn't re elect President Obama.
What are some of those -- -- and I get all ten of them but a couple of them that come tomorrow or like I said earlier you know the thing is is I think key.
Tried as best you know I don't think you've there was malicious and wondered how he governs -- just that it's not the right way.
And I realize that and and he in -- hasn't been successful.
You know that they has he said in the speech that I'm gonna get one million jobs in the next four years what we got 23 million people unemployed.
And these are Democrats.
Independents and Republicans.
-- so I'm just -- to the Democrats you know you really need to search your heart.
The other thing is since sand do you want another four years.
A man not not to forget about party politics.
Do you want another man for four years who has not had the experience to govern these four years.
To govern another four years and I I think if you look in your heart if you realize that stuff.
The -- what is they'll.
If there was an important.
Big issue that you feel were over shadows everything else in this election as to why we should or shouldn't vote for Barack Obama.
Tell us what it is you -- experience but they that all the only thing -- what worries me if he gets elected.
We're gonna have some supreme US Supreme Court justice is retiring from.
And so that means that -- -- mostly putting in more liberal.
And I think that's going to jeopardize our constitution.
Is going to jeopardize a Second Amendment Rights for sure.
Because they will eliminate gun control in our country.
And so this is what I'm extremely worried about Mike.
Is that is that.
If Obama gets re elected us a direction will be going -- that it really has me concerned.
You know when you said about the Supreme Court justices the entire audience you can hear them audibly responding I think a lot of people forget.
But that is one of the most permanent powers of -- president is so much of what he does can be on Don but that.
Has long term generational.
Implications and a very significant thing I'm willing Ronald Reagan said you know a thousand years of darkness you know I want bringing that up -- Ronald Reagan's statement from hot headed to an end up.
But that the thing is this true adult you know if we don't get down the right path we could enter very dark period.
A -- of our lives in this country and that's extreme extremely concerning to me for my kids my grandkids I'm really concerned.
