The Double-D Strategy for Rescuing America
To The Point News ^ | 17th December, 2009 | Dr. Jack Wheeler

Posted on 12/17/2009 11:48:50 AM PST by shield

A friend of mine lives in Kona on the Big Island in Hawaii. He has a fishing boat which he proudly named the 44-DD after a spectacular feature of his wife's anatomy. This is not about that sort of Double-D.

While it may be difficult to keep your mind off what that spectacular feature might look like - just as it's hard to comply with the demand that you not think of a pink elephant - let's try and focus on a Double-D that can rescue our country from the clutches of the Fascist Democrat Party and the destruction being wrought upon it by President Zero.

So - what does this Double-D stand for? It's a strategy for any Republican wanting to get elected or re-elected to Congress in 2010, and for any Tea Partyer wanting to take individual action now against a government that ignores the Constitution. Double-D stands for Defund and Disobey.

Let's talk about the Defund D first. The Founders in their usual brilliance place the power of the purse in the House, whose members must face election every two years - for if they become profligate with this power the voters can throw them out within months (24 max) rather than wait years (6) like the Senate.

All Appropriation bills authorizing any branch of the federal government (legislative, judicial, executive) to spend any money for any program must be initiated in and passed by a majority of the House. The Senate can only agree or disagree, and the same with the President.

The obverse of this appropriation authority is that if the House doesn't authorize money for something, then no money can be spent on that something by anyone in the federal government.

I reject the association between the need for guns and the need for violence.

I reject the rejection. I also reject the original premise about what we don’t need. They are breaking rules, having Senators and citizens argue about a bill which isn’t even what they have in the back room and which will appear on the desk of that usurper and legally logged in the Federal Register. I don’t know what you call it, but this is just pure insanity and ultimate arrogance. I don’t know what else than what’s been rejected to cure it.

What does the left intend to use to make sure we obey them?

Why, VIOLENCE, of course... state approved violence.

And we’re supposed to reject it?

IIRC it was Gandhi who said that the three words, NO I WON'T are the most powerful ones in the English language. However we are not dealing with peaceful people here. The KOS kiddies are fanatics and will resort to violence to get there way. Remember the guy beat up for selling t-shirts outside of the health-care town hall.

A weapon is not always a prescription to violence, but it's presence will often prevent violence. After all when they beat up the t-shit vendor the Obamathugs only had their fists. Violence can happen very easily when everyone is unarmed. But when everyone is armed there tends to be a natural hesitancy to become violent. SEIU and ACORN are not Jihadi who want to die for their cause. They just want your money, and they want to live to spend it.

When ACORN or SEIU comes for you would you rather have examples of the collected works of Gandhi or John Browning. God may have created all men but Sam Colt made them all equal.

Most likely.

The ENTIRE federal law enforcement would need to be defunded.

Rats will retaliate with Marxist court orders.

Feds would fund themselves with asset forfeiture.

Jury nullification would take too long and require training the ignorant citizen, and secrecy.

Big problems.

You understand that I rejected the implication that the need for guns presumes the need for violence?

>> I don’t know what else than what’s been rejected to cure it.

The answer to that concern is above my pay grade.

I help many a well endowed girl go through college. They were so humble they never asked for more than a dollar at a time and were so poor they could only rent clothes that they had to remove after wearing for only meer minutes.

I just analyzed probable countermeasures to the tactics suggested in the article.

Disobey federal law and Fed law enforcement will act. They can arrest many and ignore the rest. Leftist statist judges can set high bail amounts for tea baggers and OR for counter demonstrating anarchists. Property seizures including cash can be immediately used by cops.

The only way to control selective enforcement/prosecution is to defund ALL law enforcement.

This would rely on sympathy from statist media and statist liberals to turn public opinion in favor of the defunders. If they are portrayed as the selfish rich defunders, public sympathy may never come.

Excellent premise, and well worth heeding.

One of the main strategies of Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America and consequent “revolution” was exactly that - to defund (immediately or gradually) the programs which were the pillars of Democrats’ hold on power - welfare reform, reform of Medicare finance mechanism and its bureaucracy “withering on the vine” and unions through the sets of laws and court decisions (such as Beck).

Unfortunately, people like Bob “The Compromise” Dole and “compassionate conservatives” like George W. Bush and Tom “We are not spending too much” DeLay thought to benefit from granting the largess of bigger government... and we know the predictable results.

Defunding the opposition through public policy and public relations campaign justifying it is step one in putting this country on sound fiscal footing. Democrats are very adept in this, but do it under the cover of tangential bills, Republicans should expose it and bring it to light as much as possible.

We have to define them before they “define” themselves and demonize the opposition. Sadly, after Reagan, very few have even given it a try - and they have been demonized by opposition and the media without much support from their cohorts.

IIRC it was Gandhi who said that the three words, NO I WON'T are the most powerful ones in the English language. However we are not dealing with peaceful people here.

Neither were the Brits at the time and place. Gandhi was jailed, and so were many of his followers. The tide turned for him when hundreds of his followers were killed.

Put at blood-and-gut level, Gandhi's strategy of non-violent resistance involves showing the immorality of the oppressor through said oppressor jailing and killing people who don't deserve it. In order for the strategy to work, the innocents have to be jailed and/or killed.

When spelled out, it gets a leetle less inspiring.

You left out that the oppressors must also have a conscience that can be stung by such injustice, which the British did have.

Thanks for the ping. Defund might work, if we can get enough Congress-critters to sign the pledge, but Disobey won’t work because laws will be enforced as they were in Ruby Ridge, Waco, and the Soviet Gulag.
