Skip to comments.America, A Quaint Memory....
Posted on 11/09/2012 12:39:44 AM PST by Lazamataz
It appears the America I knew and loved will be a quaint memory.
By whatever means, the forces of the extreme left have undertaken, and apparently succeeded, in performing the coup de grace on a staggering nation.
The causes of their Presidential election-year victory are many. They include:
Demographics helped tip this election. This is another unrelenting trend. Single mothers will not lessen any time soon, and these women tend to view government as a caretaker -- and so they look to Democrats. There is talk in the Republican camp of loosening immigration standards and, probably, amnesty for illegal aliens. Therefore, we will continue to see an inexorable rise in the number of Latinos in America. I say this without judgment, but merely as an observation. However, they vote predominantly Democrat.
And as our students are relentlessly taught morals and values that the extreme left holds dear, the adults who will stand by our side, and eventually replace us, will continue to add to the numbers of the extreme left citizenry.
What can we expect?
I, your humble author, wish I had better news. I wish I had a solution to all this. I don't. Perhaps someone smarter than I can come up with an idea.
I will mention this: The solution must be Gramscian in nature, that would allow us to slowly subvert the forces of Marxism. Gramsci was a Marxist himself, and he came up with the concept of a 'political society' (which rules through force) and a 'civil society' (which rules through consent). The Marxists understood this and realized that the most powerful ideological shifts can only come by the will of the people. The failures of Nazi Germany and the USSR generally show the Marxists that force is a poor substitute for civil will. It should show us the same.
There are those among us I hear speaking of a complete collapse of the US economy as a solution -- a reset button, if you will. Does anyone seriously believe that a government that would follow would be MORE like the America of liberty and free enterprise that we yearn for? Remember, the citizenry (with great voter fraud help) voted Obama back into office after a miserable four-year leftist performance. Even without the voter fraud, there still remains fully half of America that holds the ideals of the left as sacrosanct. We can dismiss the 'reset button' idea as impractical and unlikely to achieve our goals.
Any solution we undertake will be and must be, multi-generational. We will not live to see its fruits. There must be a meeting of great minds to start determining a long term course that will help return our land to the liberty and the love of free enterprise we once had.
I do have some good news. It appears that the left is not choosing to kill its enemies, at least not yet. I hope they continue to remain nonviolent. If they have studied Gramsci well, they probably will remain nonviolent. Political force is ultimately self-defeating.
If that remains the case, we can still pursue our lives. We can raise our children, marry, laugh, love and honor our God, and enjoy and build the best life we can, albeit at a lower standard of living than we have had. I recommend that, while still searching for a solution to these issues, each and every one of you do this very thing. We have no control over the nation, ultimately (though we can impart our small spin) so enjoy your life to the fullest!

Where is THE best place to purchase a Gadsden flag? An organization that will truly use the proceeds for good..??
Heartbreaking but true. Checkmate. We lost.
We lost, but if you read to the end, you will get two shots of hope.
One, there may be a long term solution. I don’t have the actual solution, but I do have the methodology.
Two, there is, at the very end, true hope, and a reminder of what is important.
Heck, wasn't even drinking this time and they pulled it off while was cold sober. I'm gettin' drunk next time.
I cannot answer that. Make sure not to despair. We have our lives, our loves, our commitment to God. Stay close and honor that which is true.
The left, the right, eff them both, I’m playing by my own rules now. Now that the democrat/socialists and their republican boot licking suck-ass buddies have declared war on conservatives and the constitution, all bets are off, bring it on. Whiny hand wringers need not apply.
To what end?
Count on it. (I hope, I pray...)
I’m going out LOVING people...I’ve got a great family, I have wonderful friends, I have a community that *gak* needs me. They don’t KNOW they need me...but hey.
And, God gave me a sense of humor. So there.
(But I’m still getting a Gadsden flag bumper sticker)
Noncompliance is understandable, however.
Solution? Don’t run RINOs.
Because of 1864.
Being under no illusion, once the world has our guns, they know they can take us. Giving up our guns without a fight is what is being sought. Yep, this is becoming a depressing read. Hope I make to the end.
But take a look at the markers. The demographics, the snowballing voter fraud. Just running a conservative won't fix those.
We need a long term, Gramscian way to reverse the trend towards leftism. Not running a RINO is a tactical decision, one I agree with -- but we need a strategic vision too.
Uh, tagline removal. LOL

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Natures God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
