If you recall I've mulled over the effect of the “push-push-push” for the past few years. It was either just going to grind everyone down and completely de-sensitize the populace with a daily dose of low-grade tyranny, or it was going to ultimately wake people up. The pressure of the jackboot on the accelerator pedal was the main variable at play. From my perspective it seems that the daily grind was working “well” (from their perspective) for quite some time. When they crossed over into hammering hard on religious liberty issues, I think that was the point that a lot more awakening has occurred. (Combined with the crumbling economy that can no longer even be spun into anything palatable.) Too little, too late? As you say, we will soon find out.
I'll check those KWC posts later this evening, thanks. Also, looking forward to anything that I can do to help with the manuscript, you know where to find me (very glad to hear that it is moving along!).
I think the enemies of freedom and human dignity have made some serious miscalculation with respect to the nature of the American spirit. A fatal blindness, built right into their outlook.
The must not only be defeated. They must be utterly crushed.
