Posted on 06/12/2012 7:42:16 AM PDT by MtnClimber
When a ruling elite starts to fail, you'd expect this sort of thing. How dare, how dare those peasants challenge our divine right to rule?!
The United States is entering a pre-revolutionary situation, where a significant faction in one of the political parties has said: "We're getting screwed; the deal's off." And that is exactly what James Piereson is arguing in "The fourth revolution" in The New Criterion. We are entering a period of revolutionary upheaval, he writes, caused not just by the Crash of 2008 and budget deficits, but by "the exhaustion of the post-war system of political economy that took shape in the 1930s and 1940s." Cue Margaret Thatcher: "They always run out of other people's money."

We are getting very, very close to a revolutionary situation.
agreed. The ruling class, the democrats, bureaucrats, media/hollywood, and unfortunately a good portion of the Republican party don’t seem to be listening. We have essentially won every battle since early 2009 electorally, and it is still pretty much business as usual. There has been some nips and tucks around the edges, but nothing substantial on the Federal level. Many of the states are seeing substantial improvements, but even these changes are largely just minor improvements that help to get the books in balance. The Wisconsin and NJ changes were really not radical, as advertised by the unions and leftist media.
“We are getting very, very close to a revolutionary situation.”
We’re actually in a low boil civil war that Progressives have been clamouring for the last hundred years. I wrote “Surviving Civil War II” which goes in depth into the Left’s radical philosophy and how to fight back. We’re actually in a war over the debt slavery of our children to the welfare state, and Romney won’t solve the problem because the debts are so huge.
The local Conservative Party petition people came by for signatures last night.
I took one look at their list of candidates and said, “Not him, not him, not her, not him. I’m sorry, I can’t support this ticket of career hacks.”
The volunteer was aghast and asked why.
My answer, “they’re all incumbents and all signed off on Obamacare.”
I doubt if my message will be noticed by anyone.
That is why, what took place in WI will not only embolden other conservative governors to take action against the government unions, but if you get conservatives into the Senate, with more into the House, they will have to end up putting Romney’s feet to the fire.
I also hope there are enough conservatives to take the Senate, outvote the RINOs in the House and hold Romney’s feet in the fire.
I want to punch someone in the face EVERY TIME some dimwit types or says “keeping Romney feet to the fire”
That is a rationalization for supporting a socialist, It ISN’T going to happen and ONLY a dimwit or someone vested in lying to dimwits speaks or types those words.
Just stop it... You insulting the intelligence of everyone who reads this forum.
Romney is a socialist. You think its better to have a socialist be elected as a republican than have the democrats socialist be elected. You think the conservatives in the GOP will fight against romney if hes president, not really thinking about the fact the the gop leadership are progressives that WILL work with the democrats to pass whatever socialist entitlements they feel they can get away with.
We have a President bent on distroying this country. Obama has to go!
I am viewing things from a REALIST perspective. This is what is being faced. Get ENOUGH conservatives in the HOUSE and SENATE, and they CAN KEEP AN EYE on ROMNEY, whom there is NO LOVE LOST FROM ME, translation, NOT CRAZY for him AT ALL PERIOD.
After reading your post, it makes me wonder, who to support?
I have never heard of a president moving right after being elected.
Especially one who his entire life has seen conservatism as a flaw, a hindrance, a progress halting product of inferior people and inferior thinking, who feels that conservatives haunted and harassed his family and kept them from winning elections and their proper place in history.
As I look to read the subtle signaling of campaign Romney, I see him doubling down on distancing himself from conservative and tea party figures and voters, even agendas, he seems determined to cut off the right and to make them irrelevant, as though that is a sub-goal running alongside the defeating of his democrat opponent.
The Left, for some reason I don't understand, had been pushing the public towards violent anarchism, perhaps they think it the quickest way for them to seize complete control.
The ruling class on the right side also gladly went along, I might add.
Willard makes me sick, but not nearly as sick as the POS in the WH now does.
