With its uninterrupted history of peaceful transition of power through elections, America has a multitude of citizens who justifiably feel pride in the strength of their democracy. But it cannot be denied that political tensions are rising, and it is not uncommon for occupants of both ends of the political spectrum to voice fears of (or hopes for) revolution. Is there any reason to believe that the republic is in danger of revolutionary activity?
The correct definition might be the CR1, or the First Counter-Revolution. For what is occurring is a covert revolution by leftist Alynskyites, pretending to use the constitutional framework, while legislating (including by leftist judges) revolution in the Marxist sense.
So we are actually counter-revolutionaries, working to defend and uphold the existing Constitution. No more, no less. And that is why the oath will become central to the war, whatever it is called.
And in any event, no matter how it started, as defined by our side or theirs, the result will be a bloody Civil War, sort of Bosnia times Rwanda. Yes, it will be a Civil War. Historians can quibble about definitions.
We murder our offspring
We put our returning veterans of war on government watch lists
We elect “leaders” solely because they will take fewer freedoms away
We debate the role and place for our enemies amongst us
We accept that whole sections of our populace want and demand what they have not earned
We sit idly and discuss the fact that the Founders of our great country would have been at war by now...
no pity for the lazy
Read mycomments years ago, that is what I called it, a counter-revolution.
I don’t think it can be done gradually, though a few years of horrific inflation might make it brief.
For now, the dam is still holding.
We want to live in peace. To deal with each other as absolute equals.
They demand our obedience and refuse to leave us alone.
Defensive use of force is ALWAYS ethical.
The calculus is pretty damn clear from there.
I can do the cyber tho.
But in this case, tragically, many of the host's own cells (the electorate) have turned against the body and joined the invaders (the Marxists). Kind of like cancer.
Agreed. I just can’t imagine a political solution that keeps the damn from breaking.
Then again, I never thought, with our heritage, that we’d get here.
A source of protein if nothing else.
There is Fort Sumter, Colonel. The Lieutenant is ready to touch off the cannon. What do you say to him? Are you ready? I am sure not. CW2 would be a bloodbath, a horrible searing scarring trauma, and probably the end of the USA. I think we need to keep fighting the Cold Civil War. If it goes hot, we will all be losers.
The dam, either.
Cyber is the high ground today.
The Gramscians and Alynskyites (the same one-world Marxist crowd) had a terrificly effective game plan, and multi-generational patience. While we were all making a living, they won the “Long March Through the Institutions.” At the critical phase, they control most of the levers of power.
We’ll be damn lucky if the damn dam don’t bust right while we’re standing here looking up at that little seeping crack down the middle.
That die has already been cast. They have already declared war against us and fired the first shots. Time and again...
Ruby Rodge. Waco. Elian Gonzalez. People die in outright illegal raids by government agents weekly....
Some don’t. The Hutaree and David Olfson. Red’s Trading Post. David Sarti...
Is it STILL a “cold” war just because we haven’t fought back?
I’m trying to come up with a list of tests. One would be, “Are Rush, Sean, Laura, Michael, Mark and the rest still free to rant their spleens on national radio shows?”
As long as they are, I’d say we’re still mostly free. If teh left finds a way to silence them, I’d make a big check mark in the box.
And I’m still free to write and sell “radical anti-government” novels.
If you have any other freedom markers, I’d be happy to add them to my list.
“Well be damn lucky if the damn dam dont bust right while were standing here looking up at that little seeping crack down the middle.”
