Posted on 12/13/2012 8:32:15 AM PST by Kaslin
News flash for conservatives, Christians, libertarians or anyone in America who embraces traditional values, the rule of law, common sense, basic math, a more secure nation or politicians who put you and your family first: You have lost or are losing across the board. Period.
With the re-election of Barack Obama — and he and his campaign should be congratulated for not only running a winning campaign but, more importantly, for also exploiting the weaknesses created by the nanny-state — there is now no more mystery or doubt. Liberal ideology rules supreme in our country and to say otherwise, is to deny the facts.
This winning liberal ideology — or theology to many on the far left — has been aided, abetted, guided and shaped by many in the mainstream media who now openly turn their backs on ethics, professionalism and character in favor of evangelizing for their new faith.
Be it the major networks, the cable networks or most of the top newspapers in the country, all now have highly influential personnel who have deliberately cast aside morality for liberal victory at any price.
Unfortunately, much worse than that, many of these same media personalities and outlets have added character assassination of conservatives or conservative viewpoints to their rhetorical arsenals.
The most egregious and recent example of this being when the editorial writers for the Washington Post gleefully smeared almost 100 Republican House members with the charge of racism. In their jumping-the-shark attack titled, "The GOP's Bizarre Attack On Susan Rice," the Washington Post wondered:
"Could it be, as members of the Congressional Black Caucus are charging, that the signatories of the letter are targeting Ms. Rice because she is an African-American woman? The signatories deny that, and we can't know their hearts.
"What we do know is that more than 80 of the signatories are white males, and nearly half are from states of the former Confederacy. You'd think that before launching their broadside, members of Congress would have taken care not to propagate any falsehoods of their own."
Amazingly, the Republican leadership just took this false and obscene charge on the chin. Rather than taking to the airwaves to demand an apology from the Post and rounding up a good legal team to sue for defamation, the GOP leaders went silent.
Of course, this would be the same leadership that threatens the few conservatives in the House with expulsion from committee assignments if they don't tow the "water down our principles" line, so their ducking an issue of integrity may be understandable.
In and of itself, that's yet another glaring example of why the liberals now control the megaphone of America and rule supreme. All too often, conservatives, Christians and anyone who espouses traditional values will simply wring their hands and say "what are we to do" when their beliefs are attacked or eradicated.
The polar-opposite of that being the reaction from the far left when they feel threatened. Be it gay marriage, the unsustainable and economy-destroying benefits for public-employees, "global warming," ObamaCare, extending unemployment benefits to infinity, open borders, legalizing drugs or a host of other issues, many on the far left will fight tooth and nail to defend that which is dear to them.
They will march, they will boycott, they will harass, they will cyber-attack, they will be relentless. And finally, they will intimidate many politicians and corporations into complete capitulation.
As to why those who believe in traditional values and the rule of law don't fight back, it's because everywhere they turn, they see the battle lost.
The media? The far left controls it. Entertainment? The far left controls it. Education from pre-school to post-graduate? The far left controls it. Music? The far left controls it. Pulitzer and Nobel prizes? The far left controls them. The unions? The far left controls them. Historians? The far left are the historians.
The "message" of America? The far-left dictates it.
Somewhere along the way, conservatives and all who believe in traditional values ceded every single bully-pulpit to the far left. The evidence is clear:
The far left has won, and its power grab and influence continues unabated. Now what?
Let it burn.
Yep. Passive resistance. We built this country, it’s been taken from us. Let it go to hell.
Now we get to endure the same destruction and loss of freedoms that any country has undergone when taken over by communists. The only question is.....
will we go silently and blythely to that fate?
I say HELL NO.
We can survive just fine without their money. They can't survive without ours. Starve that beast.
It's way past time to get seriously frugal. You and your family must come first. Let them fend for themselves for a change. Force them to live off the absent fruits of their own absent labor.
E Pluribus, Pluribus.
1) Encourage/urge/insist/DEMAND that at least one state of the Union DEFY every last federal fiat and mandate that originates in DC...
Move your capital elsewhere. Cloward-Piven is a two-way street.
Crash the U.S. economy. It will be the legacy Barack wants. I suggest we let him have it.
Yes, there is no appetite for revolution in this country. We are a social welfare nanny state now. This is what the people chose. Our fastest growing demographic are ignorant Hispanics who are a natural Democrat constituency. They support big government in such numbers that it is becoming difficult for traditional Americans to overcome it - soon even states like Texas and Arizona will be difficult to win.
This just has to play itself out till our economic house of cards implodes. But that may not happen soon, it is possible to kick the can down the road for a long, long time.
Liberals didn’t accomplish this on their own, because face it... THEIR ideology is dated and flawed beyond credibility.
They had the complicity of decades of Conservative politicians who said ONE thing to get themselves elected, THEN went to DC and DID something else!
“Move your capital elsewhere. Cloward-Piven is a two-way street”
Only if you are willing to use it. The simplest thing to do is to out Alinsky Alinsky. However because the left is so far entrenched into government agencies, the only thing that can be done is to take down the messenger.
The MSM needs to be destroyed. That is the only way we are getting our country back.
Yeah, that’s right.
It’s what happens when you don’t fight your enemy at all.
Hope for a reversal is just that HOPE. The dwindling power of the conservative American in the political scene is evident that if America ever comes back it will because of a civil war. And if the military supports King Obama, all is really lost. Add that the huge portion of GOP are worthless wimps, reality must be faced.
Leftist administration was a given after the primaries.
The Left uses the rule of law and the Constitution only when it serves their purposes. We have to realize that the Constitution is dead, especially with 0-care. There is no rule of law that applies to our political masters, no Constitutional republic and we cannot restore the republic through the political process via incrementalism or other conventional means.
We need to let the system collapse, but also create some type of organized alternative structure to oppose the hard Leftist tyranny that will fill vacuum during the period of anarchy to come. I know one thing, if the collapse occurs, the organized structure will definitely not be the GOP.
Soviet style dissolution.
When? I suppose it will be when the Fed-gov cannot borrow any more money while maintaining the astronomical deficit spending. There seems to be not enough politcal will to reign in spending for the forsee-able future.
That day the Repubs better prepare to capitalize on the crisis. Oh, yeah, the stupid party.
Good grief, no it doesn’t. We just saw Michigan pass right to work, an Illinois court just ruled some of that state’s restrictions on guns to be unconstitutional, Virginia is in the process of dumping card check, and conservative Republicans picked up seats in state legislatures and governourships across the country.
It’s just at the national level where the GOP can’t get its head out of the sand. And even then, Obama just barely squeaked back in, and that on the back of vote fraud.
This is the time to get busy about defeating the Left. This is NOT the time to chicken little like a bunch of pansies.
When the economy collapses, there will be no government checks for anyone. The police, the firefighters, the military personal, the medical personal, the electrical workers, the oil workers, will all leave their positions to save their own families. Everyone will have to care for themselves. The only ones who won't be able to do that are the far left. There will be no one to support them. They'll be the minority, because everyone else will labor to rebuild, and those working hard to rebuild will NOT tolerate the left wing freeloaders or dictators.
In the end, every man will sit under and tend to his own vine, and no man will be able to take it away from him ever again. People will be free of left wing oppression and slavery. Everyone will have to share the work and the wealth will share itself. Only then will there be peace in the land.(The Pilgrims learned this the hard way, too.)
I am in same boat and only hope that the outright fighting either starts soon or after I am gone. I don’t want to be unable to engage because I am in the last chapter and cannot muster it anymore.
I would guess that at least 40% of this country's inhabitants aren't idiots or else permanent vassals of the State.
It is we who now need to organize, just as the other side has - from the bottom, up. We also could use a leader to help spread a coherent message of liberty and the potential of American Renewal from the top, down.
And: we need to get our children the hell out of the mind-numbing, life force-draining Socialist International Indoctrination Centers that our public schools have become. Home schooling is one answer, but it is clearly not for everyone. Other alternatives to public "education" are clearly required. I've got some ideas along those lines, and I'm working on them.
Political parties are not the answer, either. The GOP has proven itself useless as a means of resisting the increasingly radical assaults on our freedom. Too many of its leaders quite evidently value their careers and elite lifestyles above abstract notions like "liberty" and "limited constitutional government".
No. It's going to be up to us - the citizens who still give a damn about freedom and are willing to fight for it, no matter where that decision leads - and I use these words advisedly: no matter what must be done. People like Bill Ayers, Barack Obama, Van Jones, Cass Sunstein, and John Holdren rule our lives because we have come to depend on people who have no real intention of ever stopping them.
I'll give you all one parting hint: if you want to stop people from stealing your liberty, you first need to stop facilitating their power and control by no longer recognizing their authority. That's correct: we need to start breaking more laws, more frequently. Including - no, especially - the Federal tax code. That's just for starters. Because when the law is set against honorable people, honorable people must become outlaws.
In the meanwhile: join your local Tea Party affiliate. Stop patronizing the poisonous mainstream media and instead find the many alternative information sources (still) available. It will be a long, hard struggle. But the first step is knowing not to give up before the battle is over. The truth is: it hasn't even really been fought yet,
And this is the utter folly of allowing political office-holding to become a career choice instead of a civic duty. Many of our "conservative" politicians are only interested in re-election so they can continue to enjoy all the perks, benefits and privileges that go with the office.
Many are only in DC to lobby for special interests (aka, the people who fund their election campaigns.) Many have no core principles, unlike the Marxist Left which has the destruction of capitalism "by any means necessary" as its heartfelt goal.
"The Federal Judicial System" The far left controls it.
OK, but there is something disagreeable about leaving it at that.
Must be the insurgent within.
My, what a striking Kulak you make! With an attitude like that you'll suffer the same fate too.
Surely, Doug, you meant "TOE the line" .... instead of giving us another example of Net illiteracy?
Don't post like a Balchinian.
I'm really disapointed in most of these replies.
The Constitution is NOT DEAD. It is we, "the conservatives", that are not reading and following the instructions of the Constitution. The Constitution tells us EXACTLY what to do to preserve and regain our lost liberty. It's found in Article 5.
We must use the power of the states to call a Constitutional Convention.
As little as three amendments or changes to current amendments could return full liberty to ALL of the fifty states.
The left has a HUGE weakness. They simply don't have the numbers to defeat us on a level playing field. This has always been true yet we have failed to exploit it. An Article 5 Convention levels the playing field where the left will be outnumbered three to one.
I encourage all on this thread to do two simple things.
1. Study up on Article 5 of the Constitution. Understand the reason the founders gave the states the option to call a Constitutional Convention.
2. Put up a picture of the red and blue states and precincts from the last election and stare at it frequently.
The answer to "Now what?" will soon be very clear.
The MSM needs to be destroyed. That is the only way we are getting our country back.
Precisely. They need to be the first casualty in the coming war.
Keep your powder dry.
When the freebies start running out watch them turn on each other.
No they won't. When the freebies run out they will make ever greater demands on those of us who work and pay taxes. Look for a tax on savings, investment, 401ks, etc. Oh wait they're ALREADY talking about cranking up taxes on these.
Hmmm, if I were a Leftist, I might see a certain utility in promoting a caterwauling jeremiad like this in an opposition opinionmaking blog or news outlet.
MSM = the democrat party. and the media has ruled the U.S.A for 100 years so we see the threat. the media/democrat party = the enemy of freedom and must be destroyed. I've seen people here suggest the media is the problem and they are right but the media is just part of the democrat party.
You're right about that . and I see many other good solutions here. I think we have to get out in the streets and demonstrate against the media and the democrat party. Have we ever done that? not enough at all. I have never even seen someone even here or anywhere name the enemy = the democrat party. The media is the main weapon of the democrat party . The democrat party including Obama and the media want to own every piece of property in the U.S.A. . That is socialism. And then they can own us and so we all will become starving slaves as in Cuba, N Korea, Venezuela . that is socialism. I've seen people in Egypt protesting and fighting in the streets against THEIR dictator. I don't see conservatives here out in the streets even after this piece of crap Obama stole the election with fraud. I've seen the Georgians in the old soviet union out in the street protesting .What are we waiting for. we need signs like "the media is the enemy" , " the media = democrat party" , "Obama stole the election " , "abolish the EPA" , " Obamacare = slavery" , "Obama is a socialist dictator" etc. but no we are all content to sit here and watch football on our made in China big screen while they steal more of our freedom and country. We need to get off our ass or at least name the enemy here = the MSM (the democrat party). How can we even start to fight when we don't agree on who is the main enemy. I get the impression that most on this site think the GOP is the MAIN enemy and hardley if at all do i see the democrat party named as the main enemy: I"ve never seen that and the media has ruled this country for 100 years.
Of course they did. They share the 'Rats' aversion to social conservatives, especially Southern ones -- because so many RiNOs are homosexual or other liberals themselves, educated in East Coast privlege academies to despise everyone and everything west of the Catskills or south of Mason-Dixon.
This is a major working meme of the Left. "Social conservative = drooling Southern cracker = Neo-Nazi manburner". This is their Goldstein rant, their Two Minutes' Hate that they've used for 190 years, to divide the agrarian West from the agrarian South, and place the whole country into the hands of a few score Northeastern industrialists.
That's what it's been all about since the time of John Quincy Adams.
Conservatives who don’t go to museums, conservatives who have never been to the ballet, conservatives who think that James Michener’s novels are an example of literature, conservatives whose last contact with jazz was a Tommy Dorsey record, conservatives who have little contact with major cities, conservatives whose idea of contemporary cuisine is food cooked in a crockpot, conservatives who have no interest in and take no delight in arts, letters, music -—
are suddenly complaining that a bunch of bad guys have taken total control of all the things that you showed no interest in, know nothing about, do not participate in, and despise.
And the fault for that lies where.......?
I respectfully disagree. Facts say that people who don't embrace those ideals are the ones who are emphatically the biggest losers in most measurable aspects of life. I think if the point is that traditionalists are losing the argument in favor of those ideals, I believe it is a transitory loss.
Satisfaction in life is not gained by flaunting traditional values unless failure is your goal. There are numerous and profound examples of this which trace their source straight to the loss of traditional values. That is the message thay we must continually drive home each and every day of our lives as we seek to make an impression on the poor and uneducated. Abdicating our authority to pass that message along is what got us into this position. We must be bold and humble in communicating this to our fellow human beings whoever and wherever they are.
The mainstream media doesn’t need to be destroyed, it just needs to be bought. The $2 billion that Karl Rove frittered away would have been a great start on that.
Comment: The left has worked hard to achieve their current dominance. Over the years the left captured control of all major institutions that influence public opinion such as: church, businesses, schools, media, and education.
Further, the left has been far more intelligent than has the conservative. Leftist propaganda has been masterful, relentless and effective.
Finally, leftists have been acting as one in achieving their goals. When a leftist theme is to be promulgated they move as a choreographed ballet.
We know what the situation is that we as a people and a country are in. Yes, it does look overwhelming, BUT now that we've acknowledged this point, let's look on to what we can do about it. How about if we FReepers give positive, what we can do, commentary as each subject comes up? For one thing, we must associate with like-minded people, like-minded organizations like Americans for Prosperity, Glenn Beck's 912 Project groups, I can't remember the name of this organization, but it has to do with Brent Bozell and is out of California, but it is another good group, YOUR LOCAL TEA PARTY PATRIOTS group, just to name a few.
OK, now let's get to work on the POSITIVE...what we can do as a people to resist, push back, oppose, delay, obstruct obozo’s attempts/decrees/demands/ against the Constitution, our liberty and freedom. DO what the freedom fighters of wars past have done...DON'T sit around and moan about the bleakness of our situation and how it will never change in our lifetime, that we are doomed...you get the idea. Instead, ask yourself what you CAN do about it....and then get up off the chair and get out there with others and make use of ideas you're read, of ideas that you've brain-stormed with other like minded people, and then put these ideas to use...WE ARE AMERICANS under occupation of a socialist/communist/fascist/jihadist, sharia law loving enemy of the people. Face it and then get to work to deflect it until we can DEFEAT IT.
Conservatives and Christians are on one side.
Liberals and libertarians are on the other side, we can’t win the war against the West and civilization as long as we keep counting the left’s commandos, as part of our side.
Libertarian Party Platform:
Throw open the borders completely; only a rare individual (terrorist, disease carrier etc.) can be kept from freedom of movement through political boundaries.
Homosexuals; total freedom in the military, gay marriage, adoption, child custody and everything else.
Abortion; zero restrictions or impediments.
Pornography; no restraint, no restrictions.
Drugs; Meth, Heroin, Crack, and anything new that science can come up with, zero restrictions.
Advertising those drugs, prostitution, and pornography; zero restrictions.
Military Strength; minimal capabilities.
AEMILIUS - I don’t think “Left Wing Ideology Now Rules In America” That statement presupposes that Obama voters have an ideology or know what Obama’s is. If this were true, how does the GOP control congres and 60% of the governorships and state houses in America?????
I’m willing to say that 90% of Obama voters had no idea what he stood for prior to voting for him in either election. The election of Obama in America is nothing more than voting for 6th grade class president - all based on popularity and who your friends said they were voting for.
That’s nice, Captain Cut N Paste.
Good luck getting the soccer moms to defend your rights to own guns, for cutting the size of government and cutting your taxes and getting real cuts to spending. You guys do have so much in common, like the overwhelming desire to force everyone to live the way you think they should at the barrel of a gun. Just as long as someone else is doing it for you.
Enjoy your permanent political minority status. The big differnce between you and libertarians is that we’re used to it.
23 posts before any common sense. Sage advice.
The rest of you, stop the pity party and read post #23 again, again and again.
This is not the type of attitudes Freeper’s are suppose to have. Remember “Get out of Dick Chaney’s House!” protests? How about the day’s of Clintoon?
Knock it off or we’ll demand JimRob send you back to DU, Huffpo or some other rock you crawled out from underneath.
