We have been at war since the ink dried on the Constitution. We have labored too long under the misconception that we are a nation of laws. We have held to the high ground, thinking (falsely) that good would win in the end.
Well, the end is here. The republic was murdered by The Destroyer John “Can’t we all just get along” Roberts. All the compromising that stole our liberties, all the apologies to “our good friends across the aisle” - was it really worth it to kill the most wondrous form of government ever devised by man?
Now that we realize we are at war for our very lives, what are we going to do about it? Write letters to Congress? Do you really think it will do any good? They are as complicit in stealing our freedoms as the SCROTUM (formerly known as SCOTUS).
IF SECESSION NOT BE, THEN REVOLUTION MUST.
I live in California. I’m pretty sure that fervent please laid down in letters to Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, and Nancy Pelosi, are not going to achieve the desire effect.
California is a one-party, union-contolled, Democratic Party dominated state.
I have tried repeatedly to seek representation through the ballot box. I know that I have no recourse left to me but the cartridge box.
The cartridge box is unpalatable to 99% of us here, as we all have too much to lose. By which I mean, are you prepared to see your wife possibly raped by armed opponents, and are you willing to see your children starved or dragged off to re-education camps.
We have too much to lose today for the cartridge box to be employed, and so we are going to be dragged kicking and screaming into socialist totalitarian oppression by our fellow voters.
The way I think of this is you have 10 people in a lifeboat, with 4 bailing out water that comes in from the waves, and 5 shooting holes in the bottom of the boat, while the remaining party refuses to do a thing.
That is the USA. There is no place to go. I go down with the ship. But the problem is, we conservatives, and middle class taxpayers, and responsible job-holding consumers, are doing all we can to uphold our Constitutional Republic We are the 4 in the lifeboat.
The 5 in the lifeboat are the parasites and leeches, the financial industry, the government sector, the industrial complex, the socialists, the communists, the discovered Hollyweird starlets, the Microsoft Millionaires.
They are the 5 shooting holes in the bottom of the boat and we don’t have numbers to either bail faster, and we certainly don’t have either the courage or the means to holster their weapons or break their trigger fingers — whatever it takes to get them to stop shooting holes in the bottom of the boat.
That is why my most realistic hope is to fight a rear-guard delaying action against socialist totalitarian oppression. It is coming. It is obvious it is coming. So lets work hard and slow it down.
The people who think we can REVERSE socialism and restore liberty are delusional in my humble opinion. I mean it sincerely and I don’t mean to insult anyone.
For those who believe that liberty can be restored to a nation in the long process of societal collapse, I would bet those people to cite me one example of one nation at any time on the face of the earth that went from relative oppression to relative freedom, without first going through absolute dictatorial tyranny.
The sequence of events as laid out by Tyler strikes me as completely accurate when you look through the past 2000+ years of recorded history, which as you know goes like this:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependency back into bondage.
We have rounded apathy and our racing toward dependency. There has never been a nation on earth that hit the brakes and backed it up form apathy to liberty, without first bottoming out into bondage, and then going through the spiritual faith.
I will grant you that we could “theoretically” back up if we had sufficient spiritual faith. I will leave it to you to decide if after 50 million on-demand abortions, with gay marriage set to become law of the land, and with such wholesale irresponsible, selfishness by so many in this nation, as to the current state of spiritual faith.
