Posted on 11/13/2010 7:50:14 PM PST by Neil E. Wright
We now have what we have been waiting for. In the words of Barack Obama, "we are the ones we've been waiting for." We, the patriotic masses who find comfort in the stars and stripes, who know what it means to be an American have arrived at the precipice of history. It is a dangerous and deep chasm we see from above that separates us from them.
We are embroiled in a tug of war for the future of the nation. It is an ideological gulf that separates the sides. If one truly believes that America should be a socialist/communist country, that cannot be reconciled with the sentiment that it should not. This is not a new conflict where the sides are ill-defined and yet to be set. This is an old battle taken to a new terrain. Rather than being fought by one government to another, it is being fought right now in the minds of the populace.
The socialist/communist faction in America is largely made up of media personalities: of them are Chris Matthews, Lawrence O'Donnell, Oprah Winfrey, PBS, television, movies and labor unions. Their forces have infiltrated the government (yes, even the Republican side) in Washington and state houses all over the nation. Socialism/communism can be found in the courtrooms, the classrooms and even the boardrooms of those seeking one last chance at profit before they sign away their rights with ours.
This conflict has been an underground stream of discontent between the sides for one-hundred years. Think of it. This is not new, only the open declaration of the socialist/communist faction has the twinkle of novelty about it. They wear union insignia and boast of their connection to the highest offices in the land. Under every SEIU T-shirt is a hammer and sickle, if not, let them deny it, let them denounce it. Pull the mask from their faces and make them reveal their intent. Their willing violence in the streets in defense of the political class says all a patriot needs to know. But, they will probably admit it if pushed, if coerced, if brought out of their routine of denial.
I believe that we are at the starting point of a long and arduous journey toward a Restoration of the Constitution. It is our duty to breathe new life into the ancient document, to make words mean things again. As Orrin Hatch appropriately stated this morning on FOX News, "if Obamacare is allowed to stand, it means that the government can make us do literally anything."
Repeal is more than symbolic, it is the central actionable cause left to the patriot. If we cannot rally all of the patriotic people of the land to stand in defiance of this bill, to demand a passage and a presidential signature, or the override of the veto, then we shall stand for nothing else again. If you are looking for that peaceful moment to make your voice heard, to drive home your demand for republican government and the rule of law, this is it.
January 21st, we should meet on the steps of the capitol and demand the vote in the House and the vote in the Senate. On January 28th a new set of patriots should take up the rotation and let the others go home. Week after week there should be a changing of the guard. Take your valuable vacation and make it count. Take your unemployment and put it to use. Take your leave from war and contribute to the home front. Take your slowed business cycle and come to Washington for a week. Use whatever funds you can. Identify with others who cannot possibly go and ask for a donation to help you go. Who in the D.C. area can put some people up? These are the thoughts of a patriot, of a dedicated republican. Plan your trip now. Do not let them breathe. If we fail at this, there will only be one outcome: civil war.
If not now, when? If not us, who?
America! It's about
I like it!!! I’ll be there!!!!
OUTSTANDING post, Neil E. Wright!!! (It’s good to see you again.)
Life, liberty and the pursuit and destruction of totalitarians.
To anyone reading this that things socialism is a good idea - I'll put this as gently as I can. You are an ill-informed idiot. You have been, and continue to be manipulated by people who would be (and in many ways already are) your masters. Break free and as the T-shirt says: "Think, it isn't illegal yet." Do you really want some government flunky telling you what car to drive, what light-bulb to use, what appliances to buy, how your kids should be educated, how much water your toilet can use per flush, what your doctor can and cannot do for you, stripping you naked (literally or virtually) at an airport, what you can and cannot eat, etc. etc. a myriad of useless regulation covering the silly to sublime, the trivial to the life-or-death.
It is long past time to get government out of our lives - they work for us, not the other way around. We need Col. Slade to come in and "take a flamethrower to this place."
Please!...Utahans...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE dump that RINO Hatch!
You need to spend more time here. :D
Jim, David, Rodger ... your thoughts?
America! It's about
LOL! I know you've been here longer than me and I'm on here alot, but I guess our paths don't often cross. Anyway, thanks again for an OUTSTANDING post and if you have a ping list, please include me.
All of the above is true. If we cannot get this obvious usurpation repealed, then there is NO limit on federal government. The Marxists will have voided the entire constitution.
A huge march on Washington is in order.
I’m surprised Jim Rob still resides in California. What is there to stay here for? More of the same? All Freepers living in California should be pulling their ejection seat handles now. Make their way back east!
I should have never retired in this nutty state and I was warned!
America! It's about
Seriously? Let it start.
This struggle is no longer about conservativism versus liberalism... it is about good versus evil. The bad guys are in the wire, and I’m ready to mop the frigging floor with them for trying to destroy my country.
If you will pass through Nebraska on your way to DC, then I am on board. Count me in!
Im thinking...prob-ly a mistake but anyway...
#1,Social disorder and economic hardship can only help the cause of these socialists in fact seem to be considered useful tools to them “Rahm Emanuel”said “never waste a good emergency””Bill Clintoon said “The U.S. needs to be brought down to a more equatable level in order to compete fairly with other countries”.
#2,Who is in control of our Alaskan defenses?
We cant wear masks ...unless we, also.............. kill dogs,beat women,restrict free speech,hang gays,pray 5 times a day and cut off the heads of people we dont agree with.
If we fail at this, there will only be one outcome: civil war.
Then I will save my money for food and ammo. It’s been proven repeatedly that elected officials do not listen to us, the people. This entire march on DC (yet again) is a waste of time. “WE” have not failed. Our government has failed us.
See Glen Beck’s rally. See TEA PARTY rallies. See the day we, the people, shut down the phone system in Congress to block immigration reform. “WE” stopped nothing but a corporation who installed a POS phone system. The Congress is still trying to pass this bill on the QT. Just as they did Obamacare, Gov’t Motors Corp, etc.
There is nothing left to do but wait for the other shoe to drop. No more tourist dollars to DC. No more writing, faxing, calling your Rep’s. No more anything but waiting for the Gov’t to show their next hand. We still have a hand to play. It’s called the 2nd Ammendment and we need to use that.
When I can walk around the District of Columbia armed, I might consider a trip to D.C. Until then. No. The irony of that is what infuriates me most.
“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for” — I’m assuming that’s the message of your picture. They all look like smug, European marionettes and that, I guess, is who we’ll be. So much for multiculti diversity.
i agree we should meet in DC on Jan 21st. the problem is Odumber would view this as a civil uprising. the guy is just waiting for something to happen and he will shut down the internet, and talk radio. thn he has the control he desires. It is all about control, nothing more.
Odumber is a marxist parasite. Just like george Soros is another Marxist Parasite - Revoke his naturalization and deport ther SOB. freeze all his assets and arrest his parasite sons
This struggle is no longer about conservativism versus liberalism... it is about good versus evil. The bad guys are in the wire, and Im ready to mop the frigging floor with them for trying to destroy my country.
You’re right on and I’m with you!
You can. Criminals do all the time.
You might get harassed by cops or lowlifes. But that's a gut check thing.
What is your freedom worth?
I've pretty much got a measure of what it means to you.
What *is* that picture??
Please tell me the source for this image of all the faces.
I'm a native Californio who pulled the lever on my ejection seat five years ago. Landed in North Texas and couldn't be happier.
As Orrin Hatch appropriately stated this morning on FOX News, "if Obamacare is allowed to stand, it means that the government can make us do literally anything."
Hear..hear!! Well said and oh! So true! It truly is time
to take the country back from the brink!
I’ve been to DC a few times, and feel nothing I said or did made any difference. They don’t listen and don’t change, and we need to learn from that.
But I agree that something must be done. It’s been long and expensive trips from Colorado, and fruitless so far. How is this time going to be different from the others?
...and my children!! >:-(
Good vs. evil is exactly right! Then enemy within has pulled off the kid gloves and is outrightly attacking the very fiber of this country’s being—we have to take off the kid gloves and fight back equally tough (forget this PC crap!) or America as we know it goes the way of ancient Rome!
I for one will fight to the last to prevent that from happening...I refuse to leave a country that is worse than it was when I was a child as a legacy for my children and their children!! >:-(
Yes, JimRob should move to north Texas—I have a feeling Texas may be in the forefront of some future civil ‘battles’—this is the place to be if you want to stay free according to the US Constitution!
Wonder what Martin Luther King would have accomplished had he stopped when the Government wouldn’t listen to him either. But he marched on and on until they did...and so did all the citizens who longed to be free. We all should at least have the degree of steadfastness and resolve that these citizens had....what an example!
So no...I do not agree with your remarks that these gatherings do not matter....they have and they will...the elections proved as much and will in the future.
For all the credit given MLK and Ghandi (who MLK modeled)...
That works in a society where there’s FREE PRESS willing to cover/promote the cause.
Think about it.
You march in China, you’re shot. Never reported. Never happened. Ditto under Hitler.
Ghandi and MLK used the press to get out their message but without a system which values freedom of speech — even dissent — non-violence simply does not work to affect change.
Excellent post. I will march.
Excellent post. I will march.
And I agree with you... these marches have an effect.
I read some on liberal sites (to know the enemy) and some liberals say the tea party gatherings/town hall meetings/marches swayed the election. So these events, while greatly downplayed in the media, ARE noticed. It’s an accumulative effect and we must keep the pressure on, now that we have the clear upper hand.
Great post & thread.
I recall a discussion awhile ago, about how to get those in DC to take notice. Revolved around ‘traffic’. Lots & lots of vehicles....preferably big ones.
It sure would be a shame if some convoy of trucks, ALL took a wrong turn off an exit ramp, and dozens & dozens of them wound up in DC blocking traffic. :)
And, of course, just a coincidence that it was the same day that a legion of patriots were hanging around the capital..
Right on, brother. Imagine the load they would drop in their pants if they see 1 million True Americans on their doorsteps.
It would be a real grassroots thing. No Unions paying for people to come. No Blogger hag springing for buses. No expert printed signs. Just real people expressing their concerns.
That is a scene with people wearing the mask of “Guy Fox” (his name), and the movie is “V for Vendetta” (fiction but with some basis in past events, but a fictional film about future ones) IIRC, he *ahem*, disrupted the British Parliment. You can Google him...
And it wouldn't hurt to show up with tar, feathers and a railroad rail.
On 11/4/08 all things changed - nothing will ever be the same. Obama & the Left hopes we will be content to continue faxing, e-mailing, calling, and spending our money in D.C. for rallies. It means they can go on ignoring us.
We’ve long since past the time for civil disobedience (of a non-violent nature). However, folks like Glenn Beck keep warning conservatives not to do anything but the SOP. Continuing to do the same things in light of a changed world is naive. When will conservatives wake up to the realization that we aren’t just “in a cycle.”
You’re onto it.
>>Guy Fox (his name), ... You can Google him...
Try “Guy Fawkes” instead.
Civil war is the only way. Namby pamby wishiwashiness will fail
NO Tea Party is over until the job is done.
A Match is well in order, on the day the new Congress is seated, and there should be Tea Partys all week long.
