It's a Civil War: What We Do Now
Townhall.com ^ | March 23, 2010 | Dennis Prager

Posted on 03/23/2010 4:56:20 AM PDT by Kaslin

A terrible thing happened to America on Sunday, March 21, 2010.

The country took its biggest step ever down a road diametrically opposed to its original intent of keeping the state small so that the individual can be free and great.

Therefore, in this unprecedented crisis of values, this is what needs to be done:

1. Know and teach America's core values.

We got to this point solely because over the past few generations, Americans have forgotten the values that have made America distinctive and great. Even the "Greatest Generation" failed to communicate them.

In a nutshell, they are what I call the American Trinity: "In God we trust," "Liberty" and "E Pluribus Unum." The left has successfully made war on all three -- substituting secularism for God and religion in as much of American life as possible; substituting equality (of result) for liberty; and multiculturalism is the opposite of "E Pluribus Unum."

People who do not understand American ideals -- especially small government -- now dominate our schools, our entertainment media and our news media.

(My own contribution here is a video titled, "The American Trinity" at prageru.com. Please view it and forward it.)

2. Recognize that we are fighting the left, not liberals.

Conservatives and centrists are no longer fighting liberals. We are fighting the left.

Liberalism believed in American exceptionalism; the left not only does not believe in it, the left opposes it. President Obama, when asked if he believes in American exceptionalism, replied, "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism, and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism."

Liberalism believed in creating wealth; the left is interested in redistributing it.

Liberalism believed in a strong defense. The left believes in cutting defense and a strong United Nations.

3. Democrats should be referred to as Social Democrats. This is not meant to be cute, let alone as a slur. But calling Democrats Social Democrats is an effective way of reminding Americans that there is no longer any difference between what is now known as the Democratic Party and the Social Democratic parties of Europe. When the Democratic Party returns to its roots as a liberal, not a left-wing, party, we will happily resume calling the party by its original name. However, since no Democrat can cite a significant difference between the Democratic Party and the SD parties, there is no good reason not to use the more accurate nomenclature.

4. Work tirelessly to repeal the bill.

We must single-mindedly work to repeal the government health plan. We all know that it is difficult to repeal entitlements because they are like drugs and it is very difficult to wean people off drugs. But it is not impossible. We need to warn our fellow Americans that entitlements will do to America what drugs eventually do to addicts.

All Republicans must run for office on the "repeal" issue. Even when they lose, the difference between right and left, between Republicans and Social Democrats will have been made clear; and clarity is our best friend.

5. Our motto: "The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen."

I used this phrase in addressing the Republican members of Congress. It has become widely used, including by Rep. David Dreier, R-Calif., on the House floor during the Congressional debate on Sunday. It encapsulates this epic battle of American values versus leftist values. Every movement needs a motto. I nominate this.

6. Do not let other matters distract.

Neither Republicans nor conservatives are united on every issue facing America. Immigration is one example. But we are united on the big government vs. free individual issue, which, more than anything else, has defined America. If we allow any other domestic issue to divide us, we will lose.

And here's why: If Americans forget what America stands for, it won't help us if there is not one illegal immigrant here. And if we do remember what it means to be American, we can handle anything.

7. Acknowledge that we are in a non-violent civil war.

I write the words "civil war" with an ache in my heart. But we are in one.

Thank God this civil war is non-violent. But the fact is that the left and the rest of the country share almost no values. The American value system and the leftist value system are irreconcilable. If the left wins, America's values lose. If American values prevail, the left loses.

After Sunday's vote, for the first time in American history, one could no longer confidently believe that the American system will prevail. And if we don't fight for it, we don't deserve it.

“And if we don’t fight for it, we don’t deserve it.”

ain’t it the truth!

Our forefathers fought first with words and ideas and only when pressed and attacked was force used to repel the tyranny.
We must flood the net, the airwaves, the streets with these ideas. When we are pressed and attacked (and we will be if we are not silent) then and only then will force work in our favor.

Love Dennis Praeger, a gentleman and scholar.

More specific suggestions: Until we are militant about representation in the media and education on all levels, this will continue downhill. Most conservatives still just accept liberal domination there and it is killing us.

It's only non violent because our side isn't using violence. I don't know what confiscation of liberty and property at the point of a gun is if not violence.

Why does it have to be civil?”

The War of Yankee Agression was certainly not civil. Not when the Yankees intent was to destroy the Confederacy, by any and all means. Murder, rape, the burning of Atlanta were not civil.

My only concern is what will our enemies do if the War restarts. I don’t believe AQ, Iran, North Korea will sit idly by.

I agreed with what was in this article -- NINE MONTHS ago. This advice is, unfortunately, dated and now irrelevant. There WILL be a civil war; Obama and his minions have guaranteed it.

I remember telling people, a year and a half ago, "there will be blood in the streets before this is over." Very dark times lie ahead.

Prager is right on many counts. What he means is that we are in a national conflict over the future of our country. The Left and the Democrats (pretty much the same thing) have their agenda. If we oppose that agenda, then we must engage ourselves through all legitimate means to do something about it. And we must not give up.

This does not need a civil war.

BRING DOWN THAT BILL

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
"
President Ronald Reagan

“Western thinking has become conservative:
the world situation should stay as it is at any cost;
there should be no changes. ....
The communist regime in the East could stand and grow due to the enthusiastic support
from an enormous number of Western intellectuals who felt a kinship and refused to see
communism's crimes. And when they no longer could do so, they tried to justify them. In
our Eastern countries, communism has suffered a complete ideological defeat; it is zero
and less than zero. But Western intellectuals still look at it with interest and with
empathy, and this is precisely what makes it so immensely difficult for the West to
withstand the East.”

The non violent Iranians have not had too much luck with a non violent civil war. The other side has the guns, holds the power, and counts the votes.

That should tell us something about what is coming on the horizon.

I’ve had a leftist ask me why, when I mentioned the fact that the free individuals of America were arming up to an extent never seen before, that I would advocate murder in order to fight the democrats’ policies.

They JUST DON’T GET IT, or, I believe, they are simply intentionally obtuse to the fact that anything the government does is with the inherent threat of killing those who won’t comply.

You are not going to turn the tide as long as we have 15% of the population in the entitlement class dedicated to OBAMA regardless of what he does. These same folks are not going top give up their free entitlements and government checks on abstract concepts such as principle and sacred honor. Also consider the fact that 20,000,000 new voters( illegal aliens with new amnesty laws) will be on the roles with free health care by the 2012 election.

Unless you are talking about a real shooting war, forget it! The scum who voted for OBAMACARE and the entitlement class are not going to let anyone vote this away in 2010. They have been waiting for decades to take this country down.

We all better get our minds clear as to what has to be done. Otherwise a lot of innocent Tea Party protesters are going to be gunned down this summer.

The Social(ist) Democrats are more than willing to use force, ie, MURDER, to advance their agenda. How willing are we to resist with force as well?

A couple of points of clarification -
1) when using the force of government, the inherent threat of killing the non-compliant is always there.
2) “more than willing” - most leftists get a big ol’ stiffy at the thought of using the guns of government to punish and kill their ideological opponents.

All good points. I was thinking about our schools again yesterday, and I was thinking conservatives have to be much more agressive in controlling our schools. We should really have a core agenda we want taught in our schools. We should also look at liberal and conservative school teachers and professors and demand parity in staffing with our public funds.

I write the words "civil war" with an ache in my heart. But we are in one.

Who is winning the Civil War? They are cleaning the floor with us. GOP or Democrat, it really makes little difference. The "social democracy" project advances. Elect a GOP Congress: get "No Child Left Behnind", the very name Orwellian, as is the concept that all kids are equally able to achieve at the highest level. It's not that different from the liberal habit of giving every kid on every team a "participation trophy".

Elect Bush and get a brand new BigGovernment entitlement: Medicare Part D. And, oh yeah, no plan to pay for it except deficits.

Nominate McCain and see the GOP's standard bearer explain his unending devotion for the citizen-replacement policy of amnesty and unlimited immigration.

Go into opposition and lose a big health care bill. Ho hum. The beat goes on. We are losing every single day, we are losing every issue. Liberty is being swept from the field!

The standards of "Statism" "Big Government" "We know Best" "Our Way or the HighWay" "Taxes and Death" fly from the high ground.

Thank God this civil war is non-violent.

Yes, thank God we lack the strength of our beliefs, the conviction, the guts and determination, the trust in our God to actually use the methods our forefathers used to win our freedom to protect it in the 20th century.

I pray every day to God to spare me from the horror of war, no matter the cost in innocent human life (as long as it's not mine), or human dignity, or a future for my progeny.

So far my prayers, and Denis's have been answered.

May the darkness of socialism fill all the days of my lives for ever and ever, as long as there be peace.

AMEN.

Spot on. The government has a monopoly on the use of force, but, as many non-violent revolutions have shown, force is often a deception for those who poses it. They forget from whence their power comes and that is their downfall.

Even the great US Military could not stand against the combined weight of the American public (figuratively speaking, of course). The whole compact of government is that by ceding the monopoly on the use of force to a government, it is supposed to use that force to protect us. When it is used to subjugate, as I claim it has been doing since the advent of the income tax, it can no longer properly be called a representative democracy.

I would submit that the closest forms of government that fit our current situation prior to the Obama administration would be an oligarchy and after Obama, a Facist state model with private enterprise partially owned and directed by the state but with private companies nominally directing their affairs.

Yes, he is...to quote mine own evil sef', here:

”Zimbabwe On The Potomac...”

You know there were warning signs...

I kept telling people when Bill Clinton slithered in to office, and clung to it, despite all the scandals, and Impeachment itself-- “He's just a symptom. Like a fever is of a disease- there's something wrong with America.”

Like Popular Culture- look at the magazines-- I call it “thugs & jugs,” or “which Pop Tart is popping out whose baby this week?”

Or Katrina- ever seen so many people milling around with their hands out, when they should have been helping themselves?

We did it to ourselves, and The New, Improved Black Jesus is merely a symptom.

All civilizations have a shelf life- once enough citizens figure out that by electing the “right” representatives, they can use the power of the government to pick the pockets of others,

...it's all over, except for the details.

Well, we're in the “details,” now.

Meanwhile, I have to figure out what Miss Emily and I do with what's left of our lives, and bush hog her Mom's old place in the country, because City Life isn't going to be worth living from here on out.

I'll catch you all later...

...maybe...

I advise everyone to do a more formal assessment of their ammo stocks. At least 1000 rounds per weapon, minimum.

I was gonna say "Also, it may be a good idea to invest in a "throw down" gun right about now", but that may be skirting illegality. So don't invest in a throw down gun right about now, unless you really want to.
