I very truly fear that it is coming to just that.
God help us find another way.
I say we get it over with now. The sooner the better.
God helps those who help themselves, I have heard it said.
What do you propose we do?
All goes into flux at that point and the law of in intended consequences takes over. A clearly articulated and led political alternative is needed first.
This from NY Sun ? Last time I saw something from it here it was fronting for the regime. Any New Yorker FR know anything about this publication ?
The Colonel has hit the nail on the head.
This thread should have at least 300 replies.
Now, rather than leave it to the kids.
The day will come and when it does I will be ready
and for all those that say “Nay, we will die in vain!”
at least we went down fighting, less can be said for others
If you read the essay, you’ll note that the Colonel has already dismissed elections as a means to an end. The election process in this country is corrupted to the point of failure, and I believe we’ll see how truly bad it has become in 2014, if we make it that far.
“When Injustice becomes Law, Resistance becomes Duty.” Thomas Jefferson.
Jefferson said a lot of things that were pertinent back in the day, and those same words — and the above is just one quote — are more pertinent today, because the assault on freedom is so much more intolerable today than it was in the 1770s. George III was a benign benefactor compared to Obama and his minions.
The messiness of revolutions isn’t limited to physical violence. Societies convulse as well.
We revolted, in part, against Great Britain because colonial administration did not provide for civil means to redress our grievances.
Our wise Framers provided those means, of peaceful redress. First among them is the fact that the people are represented.
Let’s say we fight and win. Then what? The same corrupted populace will remain. Will they demand a return to the Constitution?
Don’t bet on it.
It really is surreal, how much the country seems to be rapidly re-configuring itself into a one-party rule. You have the media transforming from age-old liberal biases to becoming an all-out “partner” to Obama and his agenda, while the GOP has all but given up being a genuine “opposition” party, capitulating and even colluding on every issue from budgets to amnesty to just about everything.
This one-party rule is a paradigm that leads to tyranny. Always. And very, very quickly. We’re at an incredibly dangerous stage.
And if so, the good news is that there would be no one left alive to work for and therefore sustain the 47% who will not work to feed and house and clothe themselves.
Then the Statists will have the unpleasant duty of trying to force them to work. And the entirety will collapse completely.
America will be a political ghost town and the first one in gets to stake their flag.
I do agree with the Colonel’s diagnosis, it’s the severity of the cure I have reservations with. Unless a case be clearly made, with violations of the constitution clearly articulated and damages to the republic be undeniably placed in evidence, the cart is way, way in front of the horse.
And remember...Big Sis is always listening.

the situation we’re in is dire. There are any number possible outcomes; these outcomes will be determined by known and unknown factors. We can still hope for the best while preparing for the worst.
Think out of the box - what are small ways that everyone, young and old, can protest against the FEDS every day? A kind of protracted civil-disobedience campaign....
Remembering Waco, Ruby Ridge and before that Kent State, I don’t see a scenario where Americans would sacrifice to interrupt their sports TV watching, shopping, talking and texting on cellphones (women), and Twitter tweeting in order to engage in a rebellion. Recall that they (”we”) wouldn’t do that to seriously consider our choices during the past election, despite hard times, gasoline prices twice what they were 4 years earlier, food prices going up, effective unemployment at 15%, and so on. Don’t bug me now, I’m watching Okrah!
