Dear readers, it has taken a long time for the events of the last few days to completely gel and sink in. I'm sure it has been the same for you all. Hopefully, when you read this, though the prognosis is bleak, you will get a shot of hope -- and a realization of what is important -- at the end of the article.

I do not dispute what you have written. I have one comment on a single line:

"Firearms ownership will be drastically curtailed, via a UN Treaty that will subvert, if not supercede, our Second Amendment. The world looks at America as an oddball, and the world wants our guns gone."

At that point, there will be blood.

Well thought out Laz..

So that is where you have been for the last 3 days writing a well thought out editorial.

Thanks so much for posting it.

I have trying to weigh the pro’s and con’s of the “reset” button and you helped me out with some of that.

Long Live our Republic...

Very well thought out but extremely bleak, Laz. Thank God I reside in Texas, where, though we have more than our fair share of illegals, we still have an economy that is perking along...and a governor that won’t let the feds horn in on it if he can possibly prevent it. We have jobs and NO state income tax unless the dims take over here next cycle, which they keep hinting out in our local paper.

I find that politics are very distasteful to me after seeing the shenanigans that went on during this past election. I think I’m all about puppies and kittens from now on. :)

I don’t want my head to completely explode.

I have read “The Book” and know how the story ends....the good guys win.

That is one ray of hope in this cold, dark world.

I agree with your plan, we need a 100 year plan, like the Chinese...a campaign plan with strategic objectives and shorter tactical goals and objectives.

Pray, Prepare, keep your head on a swivel.

Chiming in late here. I agree with what you wrote. We have clearly passed the tipping point to socialism. My brother thought we had passed it several years ago. I knew the floodgates were creaking in 2000 when Bush narrowly beat Gore, and we managed to stave it of one last time in 2004 when the dems ran an unlikeable arrogant prick in Kerry. This was despite what I thought was the media’s best efforts to win the election. But now, it is clear that conservatism, as a national political philosophy, is dead.

Three things have all come together to kill conservatism. First, the American public has been dumbed down and conditioned to expect government to do everything for them, including doing their thinking. The takers outnumber the makers and the demographics have irretrievably shifted. Second, the media, which always leaned left, now knows that there is no accountability and they are openly agitating and propagandizing for the left. Third, because of both of the above, the left knows they can steal any election they want.

The GOP will be allowed to exist for a while as window-dressing. The left needs a convenient boogeyman while it cements its final control over the nation. But yes, it’s over.

I have voted in my last national election. It does not matter any more. For the time being, I live in a “red” state and will still vote in state and local elections. However, it is only a matter of time before the left begins the purge here, too.

So like you, I will hold my family and my Lord close. I will not cooperate with the statists to the extent possible. I will not fly the flag. I will not go watch “Red Dawn”. If the Chines or whoever invade, let them. I no longer have a country to fight for. It was already conquered from within so what do I care who it is that seeks to oppress me?

Larry, if those who will not sign on to the socialist model of oppressive federal oligarchy will raise their children to be more self-reliant and do their best to close OUT the debauchery onslaught from Hollyweird and TV, and home school their children, then a more virtuous people will rise up in the midst of the debauched democrat socialist society and become the light to many who haven't a clue but love their children. It is an internal flux which can save America, but which is very hard to define in sound-byte communication.

Sting had a song titled 'I Hope The Russians Love Their Children too', IIRC. We can hope the liberals love their children too, and that as the society becomes more and more cancerous at least some of these progressive fools will awaken to see the destruction they are endorsing which is destroying their children. But we can only accomplish it through example, because one of the hallmarks of liberals and leftists is that they have closed minds so rhetoric has no chance of awakening such dead souls.
