We are witnessing today a great revolutionary crisis, a crisis where the demands of the economic order are conflicting directly with those of the political order.
It also is in deep economic difficulty.
What we see here is a political structure that no longer corresponds to its economic base, a society where productive forces are hampered by political ones.
Since the exodus from Egypt, historians have written of those who sacrificed and struggled for freedom -- the stand at Thermopylae, the revolt of Spartacus, the storming of the Bastille, the Warsaw uprising in World War II. More recently we've seen evidence of this same human impulse in one of the developing nations...
Day after day we were treated to stories and film slanted toward the brave freedom-fighters battling oppressive government forces in behalf of the silent, suffering people of that tortured country.
And then one day those silent, suffering people were offered a chance to vote, to choose the kind of government they wanted.
They (were) threatened by death to any who voted, and destroyed hundreds of buses and trucks to keep the people from getting to the polling places. But on election day, the people ... an unprecedented (many) millions of them, braved ambush and gunfire, and trudged for miles to vote for freedom.
A grandmother, who had been told by the guerrillas she would be killed when she returned from the polls, and she told the guerrillas, ``You can kill me, you can kill my family, kill my neighbors, but you can't kill us all.''
Strange, but in my own country there's been little if any news coverage of that war since the election. Now, perhaps they'll say it's -- well, because there are newer struggles now.

I just visited the Reagan library a few days ago. An uplifting experience even in these grim times.
I saw your ideas on your personal page - I live in SoCal, near the RR Library. Did you see this?
I was thinking of a PAC myself. My name for it would be CLEANERS. Constitution Loving Exasperated Americans for the National Elimination of Republican Socialists. It would target Rinos in the Primaries and its first goal would be to remove a RAT sphincter from Pennsylvania
