The Second American Revolution is Just Around the Corner!
Coach is Right ^ | 8/14/2011 | Doug Book

Posted on 08/14/2011 10:06:07 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax

Prior to the 2010 elections, pollster Pat Caddell warned members of the political ruling class that the nation “…may be at a pre-revolutionary moment,” calling the November vote “…more of a national referendum than any [midterm] since Watergate.”

A longtime Democrat, Caddell’s warning was not directed exclusively to his party, for though it would bear the brunt of voter scorn, Republicans were also widely mistrusted and arguably enjoyed a record victory principally because they were NOT Democrats.

As a measure of voter distemper, consider that John McCain, a presidential candidate just 2 years earlier, might have suffered a primary defeat had he been challenged by a more formidable opponent.

Indeed, finally called to account for his frequent betrayal of conservatives, the McCain campaign was forced to craft a right-wing political caricature which left him barely recognizable as the aisle crossing capitulator he had been…a role which cost other Republicans their careers.

Nor has the mood of an angry and suspicious public changed in the interim unless it be for the worse as the arrogance of political elites and their contempt for voters, the nation and the law have intensified with each passing year.

After all, politicians readily boast an ability to do as they wish while blissfully ignoring Constitutional limits placed upon the powers of the state.

“The victors of this second American Revolution will determine the social and economic course of the United States for centuries to come. Most of us will be around to watch it begin.”

The thing is, we don’t have anybody who rises to the level of the victors of the first American Revolution. I’m hesitant about the course they might lay, unless it is to return to the original course.

That is exactly why the country needs a war time President. One that can take control and prove to the people that he will protect this country and work to make it as strong as it was in the past. The people of this country will take a lot if they believe we are heading in the right direction. As Commander in Chief, he must have the military’s best interest at heart, knowing full well that they will protect this country............not just to adhere to the RoE’s that in place now. At the present, just the regulations that the WH has placed on this country has cost $1.6 Trillion. That has to stop and allow the people to control their own lives and not bend to a small group of people that say “It’s not fair.”

I think we have some people to rise to the top—it is the masses that I worry about—most are selfish, can’t sacrifice their immediate pleasure for any type of hardship that would have to result.

They are immoral.

The people who founded this nation and came originally suffered a lot for their future—particularly the future of their children and grandchildren. Too many “good” people now have children for dress-up and as a status symbol—it is all about themselves—you can see the narcissism and selfishness on Facebook. They don’t spend much time with their offspring—give them to others to raise and form their “morals” and worldview as if “others” will love their genetic offspring as much as a mother should.

Leaders usually always appear on the scene—like Churchill—but it is the masses that will either follow or turn to the “easy” solution—the one that appears “nicest” at the moment-—but will end up to be the hell of the gulag.

This is why we need an unashamedely American President that is PRO America. I am proud to be an American and make NO apology for living in and being part of the GREATEST nation on the face of the earth. America is still the great melting pot - taking the best of all cultures and adopting them as our own - then improving them.

A nation where one can change your state in life through your own actions at any age from any place - with drive, determination, and a large dose of the American Spirit.

Our next president must communicate this and be living proof of the power of the American Spirit, including the goodness of America and her people and, as Reagan did, inspire Americans to greatness through the truth that America and the American way under our Constitution (as written - not interpreted) is the last best hope for the nation and the world.

Right now we have a few American success stories as candidates, but the only candidate (pending) that inspires the Reagan type of confidence and belief in America among hard working Americans is Sarah Palin.

This is why she is so explosive, true Americans don’t need the Government, we need Government OUT OF OUR WAY economically and limited to those areas clearly delinieated in the Constitution and NOTHING MORE. Sarah lives and knows what all Alaskans know (and the Tea Party is remembering) - the Government that governs least governs best.

...which is why there must be some restrictions placed on the dead-beat American class....those who get all of their daily living needs met by government....

...they must be able to show that they have "skin in the game" before their votes count.

..it is impossible for us to continue as a free society when freeloaders are becoming the majority of the "tax payers".....for they will vote every time for the politician who promises them the most stuff....

I have mixed feelings towards there being a second Revolution. I waffle. As of now I don't think it will happen. The leadership, real and prospective, is composed of midgets riding in gaily colored buses mouthing platitudes at various Iowa campaign stops. The people themselves have even stopped being a "People" and have become a mere demographic; a vice ridden populace steeped in the deep political philosophy of bread and circuses; all while being led by a Third World self proclaimed black "Divinity." The rise of the "Tea Party" demonstrates that the current leadership has lost its way and at the same time the respect of the governed. Whenever the people become involved it is a sure sign that the political capacity of those in power has seriously declined.

On the other hand there may be enough left in people who have not yet seriously intervened. The names of the leaders to come may not even be known to us as of today. Such a man might tap whatever remains of Western ability, virtue, tradition and care for all in our population. In short, while our "Golden Age is long past, we may have a "Silver Age" left to us!

It’s not going to be the “Second American Revolution.” Talk to some progressives, listen to their radio stations (like KPFA or the equivalent in your area) and read their books. It’s going to be the “Second American Civil War.” And it’s not going to be like “Civil War I.” Expect something along the lines of Somalia or Bosnia.

Worth noting. Our “Civil War” involved a clear delineation of opponents. The Mason-Dixon line made it simple. This time, the delineation is rural/urban, with further neighborly differences.

When shooting starts - and it will because one group has no workable survival skills - it will be a true civil war.

Liberals think that laws and regulations should apply to everyone else except themselves.

You'd probably be surprised by how many Liberals are closet gun owners. Or would be in a flash if threatened.

They are hypocrites.

There was a huge rush to LA gun stores during the LA riots. People were surprised when they had to wait several days... another issue. Betting that many of them were Liberals.

Many may come over to our side if it gets rough. There are undeniable facts when society collapses. For example, the police are not readily available during disasters.

That is why they are changing the face of all the police forces nation wide.

They are hiring thugs with little real education and paying them more money than they would ever see otherwise while supplying them with armored vehicles, encrypted communications, and a host of weapons that would topple some third-world nations.

These thugs are beholden to the leftists and will do everything they are told, including mass murder, Constitution be damned.

That is an urban legend, originated and fueled by socialist progressives. Silly suburban liberals may feel icky around guns but true progressives own them, love them and are ready to use them.

Exhibit A: The Democratic Underground Gun Forum. Far superior to anything FR has like it. Many of them understand what's coming and are getting ready for it.

Exhibit B: They own lock, stock and barrel the top leadership of of the large metropolitan police departments. I am unfamiliar with San Diego P.D. (but the Sheriff there is William Gore who approved the shoot to kill order at Ruby Ridge) but Los Angeles, San Jose and San Francisco are completely subordinated to the leftists agenda. They already have the someone else to do their dirty work.

You are correct—Theodore Dalrymple writes about this “underclass/welfare” society that England has created which is literally burning London down.

Teach and condition children and families into Marxist ideology that they don’t have to work for anything and they are owed by the fact that they are alive—there will be no appreciation for anything—only envy and resentment and hatred and a man eat man mentality.

That is what Marxism/Socialism is all about—creating division/hatred/groups(feminist,homosexuals, la raza/black power/etc)—to divide and label and create chaos instead of unity—revolution.

“Many may come over to our side if it gets rough.”
I don’t want them to come over to our side when the going gets rough. It probably wouldn’t have gotten rough if they weren’t who/what they are now. They won’t change, all they will do is go along for the ride and then climb to the top of the pile after it is all over. Then once again try to tell everyone else what is right, how they should live their lives and why we can’t hold anyone responsible for their actions.
Screw them (polite wording); let them stay on their side. Win or loose.

Good point. Holding someone responsible for their actions is important.

However, a convert has it's merits. Many Liberals around the US are rethinking their positions on guns. How many? Don't know. Two of my Liberal friends have asked me for my opinions on guns. What is the best self defense weapon, etc. Gives me an opportunity to try to convince them that registration is a bad idea, too.

A lot of people are scared. And when people are scared, the idealistic, ivory tower, BS is one of the first things to go.

Just my two cents.

Gallup Poll

Republicans are much more likely than Democrats to report having a gun in their home. A majority of Republicans (55%) say they have a gun in their home, compared with 32% of Democrats.

Exhibit A is a good example of liberal owning guns but few liberals belong to DU. I’ve met lots of liberals, as has anyone else, but they usually own maybe a pistol or a shotgun. Few own anything much more than that. There are some loudmouth types that think they are Rambo, but compared to conservatives they are way outgunned.

No doubt ANY political appointment in a city, from Police Chief to Mire Marshall, is a liberal, however, many rank and file members are as mixed as the rest of the country.

Useless poll. The number of people that say they do to look cool or the number that refuse to answer makes any such poll useless. We all know the people in our lives and who does and who doesn’t own a firearm and can use it.

I know a guy that owns perhaps the largest gun store in the country. His view is it is 50/50, but the vast majority of military grade weapons are not purchased by the liberals.

Let’s also not forget that liberals are emotional people and are prone to stupid decisions. Let’s hope any use of a firearm by them is given the same stupid emotional considerations.

Isn’t that the truth. Lol.

Liberals live most of their lives in a perfect ivory tower where their omnipotent government will always protect them. This is probably reinforced by their friends and family and by the mantra of the Democrat party.

It is a shock to them when they find out that it isn’t true. A couple of good examples to offer to them are the LA riots and Katrina. It is impossible to argue against the fact that their government failed them in both situations. I tell them that they must be responsible for their own safety. It seems to make sense to them.

Also, I am not advocating anarchy. America is still mostly good. A revolution would mean that all attempts to resolve our problems would have ended in a complete failure.

We all have a lot invested in this country. Some of us — many generations of ancestors. And we all still live pretty decently. And we do have some control over the situation. All hope is not lost.

However, it is always good to hope for the best and to be prepared for the worst. That is what the founders of our Constitution taught us.
