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.
