An Army Ranger Sets Us Straight on the SCOTUS Ruling - STEP UP!

From Alan Vera of True the Vote:

Alan V I majored in political science and minored in military science. I’ve served this country as an Army Airborne Ranger in special operations.
In modern history there has never been a war settled by a single battle. In modern history there has never been a military force that won each and every single battle. In our own Revolutionary War the Patriot Heroes suffered nothing but defeat for the first year. Yet they won our freedom through perseverance and determination.
Yesterday we lost a battle. It stings because we were betrayed by someone in whom we previously had confidence. It stings because the enemy is gloating over their “victory.” BUT IT IS ONLY ONE BATTLE.
We bear the blame for allowing the Communists 40 years to infiltrate our government, our media, our schools and our courts. We have given them an enormous short-term advantage. And we’ve lately paid the price for our passivity.

  1. We know Congress is corrupt and spineless.
  2. We know the White House is filled with Chicago Communists.
  3. Now we know the Supreme Court will NOT protect the Constitution.

With all three branches of government now out of touch with the constitution, it’s time for all of us to realize that the burden of preserving the republic rests directly on our shoulders.

Yesterday’s setback is not the end of the conflict. It doesn’t matter how many times we’re hit and stumble. All that matters is who is left standing at the end.  NOBODY ELSE is going to do it for us. It’s time to STEP UP.

STEP UP!

That's the first thing I said when my sis called me and told me how upset she was over the decision. “Sis, yes we lost this battle but we are not going to lose the war. I told her that the left, lately has been calling the Tea Party dead,well, they were maybe dormant but not dead. I said “watch what happens with the Tea Party now and up to November, you're going to see them come back stronger than ever before. If the Dems already fear the Tea Party, we have just begun to fight. This Roberts decision breathes new life into the grass roots movements like never seen before. This is just my opinion but I believe this decision moved November from a close election to a Romney landslide.

After this pep talk, I shall refer to the CJ as “Benedict Arnold” Roberts.

I don’t trust Romney. I will not give him money, but he will get my vote. I want FReepers to give me guidance on the best organization to give money to, who will make the most noise, shine the brightest light and do the best job supporting our true conservative, Constitutional interest and cause during this election. Help me out folks.

It’s time to severely limit the governments power to tax and spend. They are out of control. It will take more than an election or two. It’s time for action. It’s time to starve them and refuse to go quietly into that night.

We need a new vision for America’s future and a plan to carry it out. We need to inspire folks who have lost hope that any greatness still exists in the world. We are capable of getting back to basics and understanding that the progress of mankind lies in the hands of those of us who still believe in the power of the the human spirit and the fact of an American exceptionalism that took us to the moon and back.

Find out who’s running locally who agrees with your point of view & help their campaign. I’m working with a candidate for commissioner in my town. Unfortunately, my town might as well be part of San Francisco. We’re getting next to nothing in donations & barely scraping up money to print campaign materials. We’ll be doing a walking & talking campaign, as all we have is shoe leather. The state party is no help at all.

Once again, help your local candidates & let’s take back this country from the ground up!

Can anyone tell me where Roberts is going to be buried?

I want to start pissing on his grave right away. No reason to wait.

Maybe I should start a business. Send me your urine and I will pour it on Roberts’ grave.

Well said & true sadly we have been less than outstanding in holding our politicians feet to the fire . This I believe will be changing in very short order . Get upset folks with this decision & law then get MOTIVATED this is gonna be a long nasty fight so lets get stuck into the bastards REGARDLESS OF PARTY.

This Roberts decision breathes new life into the grass roots movements like never seen before. This is just my opinion but I believe this decision moved November from a close election to a Romney landslide.

I agree, but unlike others, I think Justice Roberts intended his decision to shake us awake. It's not the Supreme Court's duty to fix Congressional mistakes, that's OUR job, and we have that chance every two years, or six, in the case of the Senate. If we don't like em, convince as many of our fellow citizens as possible to vote em out!

The article repeats and stresses what you have been reading on FR for years.

This November may well be our last chance to restore the constitutional republic peacefully. DON’T BLOW THIS CHANCE.

See #9.

This election is our last peaceful chance. There may not be any more elections if 0b0z0's communists steal the election through the Soros connection, which is the Spanish vote-counting firm that the government hired!

Sadly, it's come down to that. Mitt is merely Obama-lite but the not so grand old party has shoved this sleezy used car salesman down our throats. It's anyone but Hussein for me.

my turn to agree with you now. Even Rush thinks that Roberts screwed up but I’m not so sure. Usually Rush brings me up when I am down about things but today he was a depressed bummer. Love the guy but when he says he is always 98.7% right, well, to day was the other 1.3%.
