Is America in a Pre-Revolutionary State this July 4th?
pj media ^ | July 2, 2013 | Roger L Simon

Posted on 07/02/2013 7:55:08 AM PDT by EXCH54FE

We are two-thirds of the way into the most incompetent presidency in our history. People everywhere are fed up. Even many of the so-called liberals who propelled Barack Obama into office have stopped defending him in the face of an unprecedented number of scandals coming at us one after the other like hideous monsters in some non-stop computer game.

And now looming is the monster of monsters, ObamaCare, the healthcare reform almost no one wanted and fewer understood.

It will be administered by the Internal Revenue Service, an organization that has been revealed to be a kind of post-modern American Gestapo, asking not just to examine our accounting books but the books we read. What could be more totalitarian than that?

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal warns the costs of ObamaCare are close to tripling what were promised, and the number of doctors in our country is rapidly diminishing. No more “My son, the doctor!” It doesn’t pay.

And young people most of all will not be able to afford escalating health insurance costs and will end up paying the fine to the IRS, simultaneously bankrupting the health system and enhancing the brutal power of the IRS — all this while unemployment numbers remain near historical highs.

No one knows how many have given up looking for work while crony capitalist friends of the administration enrich themselves on mythological clean-energy projects.

In fact, everywhere we look on this July Fourth sees a great civilization in decline. And much of that decline can be laid at the foot of the incumbent. Especially his own people, African Americans, have suffered. Their unemployment numbers are catastrophic, their real needs ignored while hustlers like Sharpton, Jackson, and, sadly, even the president fan the flames of non-existent racism.

I think the runaway, widespread success and longevity of “Occupy Wall Street” provides the answer.

As long as the populace finds itself materially satisfied, no revolution will occur. People first have to feel desperate in ways they never have before.

“People first have to feel desperate in ways they never have before.”

Given the ineptness of this administration coupled with the total lack of IQ in upper govt levels, that will not take long.

Obama has thoroughly coopted the military. He has purged it of loyal officers and staffed it with queers and apparatchiks. They have the latest and greatest in cutting edge weapons technology. Barry the Alinskyite will not be shy about turning it upon us.

Will be the shortest Revolution in history, I fear.

There used to be an underlying fabric of moral structure in our society, no matter how delicate and threadbare. That framework is now completely gone, residing only in the individual conservatives that inhabit this now-foreign land. I honestly can't call it home any longer.

Sorry FRGang. Love y'all, but this is us talkin', not "people everywhere," who seem dumber than a box'o'rocks these days.

Them as votes for Obama are, one way or another, a bit more than half of us when it comes to voting, and they will die before admitting that their saviour is a weird and criminal(-ly inept) azole.

BTW WTF is with the Reggie-Barry-GW-Michelle-Laura $100Million African Adventure Tour and Lovefest? Does GW really think that preaching Gay Marriage and Global Warming to Africans is a worthy use of his retirement time?

Unfortunately, most Americans aren't even aware of that. Unless it touches them personally, they won't bother.

“Police: Fear of losing guns led Granville man to fire at police”

“Man Takes Biden’s “Warning Shot” Advice And Has His Guns Confiscated

Man Takes Biden’s “Warning Shot” Advice And Has His Guns Confiscated

“MaN Takes Biden’s “Warnign Shot” advice and has his guns confiscated”

http://politicaloutcast.com/2013/05/man-takes-bidens-warning-shot-advice-and-has-his-guns-confiscated/

Biden’s quote

“[I]f you want to protect yourself, get a double barreled shotgun. I promise you, as I told my wife, we live in an area that’s wooded and somewhat secluded. I said, ‘Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out, put [up] that double barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house.’ You don’t need an AR-15—it’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use, and in fact you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun! Buy a shotgun!”

As for the military vet who took Joe Biden’s advice, he was charged with Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Menacing, and Reckless Endangering. They also confiscated his rifle, because it was “used in the commission of a crime.”

The book The Harbinger explained things to me better than anything I've heard or read from the political, societal and economic ex-spurts.

The first two Harbingers, 9/11 and 2008, most will agree were very impressive and life altering. Even radically so.

Looking around at how the pieces on our board are being arrayed, I'd say the next "now scheduled" Harbinger should be a real show stopper!

Perfect, the real answer to the question. Will the country collapse, perhaps soon? I expect so. Will the collapse be precipitated by domestic unrest? Not a chance.

Not unless he plans on taking out over 50 million. It won’t be a conventional event it will happen in people’s yards and offices once the oppressors are identified. Unless they will move, along with their families, into a bunker complex.

The unwashed masses (known as the low information voters to us) can turn very fast.

I would expect civil unrest to start with them first, as the catalyst for greater unrest.

Sadly, the people that should be revolting won’t because they are producers, preparers and largely honest, hardworking people.

The ones that will revolt will be the entitlement masses on EBT (TANF, WICs, Section 8, EITC, et al) when the rest of us have given up, cashed out and gone Galt. Most urban areas, as the sentiment goes, are only 4-5 days worth of basic supplies before the urban denizens go Zombie.

When the government can’t collect enough taxes, or borrow money with something of value behind it for collateral, when all the world’s financiers of debt put the USA in the sh!t investment bucket, the only option is to print scrip, just like they’re doing now to buy T-Bills and stocks on the NYSE. Only this scrip gets doled out directly and look for goods sellers to start upping prices.

If war comes to America it will be a Social War with a few added economic factors. Also, a Social War requires a dedicated minority; i.e. Lenin conquered Russia with about 200,000 people as did the French during their revolution. Most people will stand idly by and see "which way the wind will blow." A Social War will be composed of members of the coalition that put the current clown in office; the black, the Mexican, the Asian, the Sodomite and other criminals,the Non-Christian and a degenerate white youth. The other side will be Western Man-if any can be found!

I don't think Western Man is ready. The question being-can he get ready?

Never forget stories during WWII that they found a few officers with holes in the back of their helmets.

“Western Man” is, IMHO, the ‘sleeping tiger’. When the”Social Warriors” poking at the sleeping tiger finally awaken it, numbers will count. America is solidly and deeply committed to its Christianity and generally conservative history/beliefs.

IMHO, when Americans realize what Islam is and what it mans to America and women in particular, America will play Cowboys and Muslims and will include the social warriors in the game.

Bet on the Cowboys.

If the Zimmerman rail is decided before the July 4th holiday, rioting is likely and may be the excuse for Obama’s attempt at imposing tyranny.

The Urban Ferals are restless, deluded with visions of “self esteem” and have simmered in racial hatred of whites since Malcom X’s time.

Islam knows its power is waning as the world becomes ever more cognitively demanding while places like Egypt can’t even feed themselves. Expect an Islamic ‘Hail Mary’ - - oops - make that an ‘Allahu Ackbar’ move of desperation.

Look for Putin and the Chinese to deal with such Muslims are in range. Look for the Palisimians and their allies to finally cause their own destruction.

“his own people, African Americans, have suffered. Their unemployment numbers are catastrophic”

Except that you have to CARE that you are unemployed, and suffer from it.

HOW can you afford all ‘that’ and be unemployed?

Oh, it is given to you, as you are entitled to it. Got it; you see no problem with the current course.

The Occupy movement reminds me a lot of the story of the Palestinians and the greenhouses. They want to tear down capitalism and impose anarchy but then they will wonder where the free food went.

RE: “ Look for the Palisimians and their allies to finally cause their own destruction.”

That would probably be the fulfillment of Psalm 83, followed after a spell by Ezekiel 38-9.

It would appear that Isaiah 17 is about to be deployed in Syria and Chapter 19 in Egypt.

The Old Scrolls seem to be unrolling just about as the Ancient Ones predicted they would.

If I hadn’t read to the end of the Book and know how it all comes out, I probably would’ve drank myself to death years ago.

The "man in the African-American Street" has been cruelly misled.

He legally voted for "Hope and Change" at least twice, and there ain't no hope yet....much less change in his substandard lifestyle. The people for whom he enthusiastically voted, based perhaps on skin color, are enthusiastically recruiting millions of new voters who come to the US illegally and "eat his lunch."

But "the man in the African-American" Street" is an American. He can not easily admit a mistake!

The error cannot be his. The increasingly inescapable facts of a faux-Presidency weigh heavily.
A gay, fraudulently documented, "Community Organizer" from Chicago for whom the African-Americans cast 97% of their votes, apparently based in the man's claim to be a "typical African-American, cannot possibly be the problem.

The "problem," must be yours. Or mine.

That was an interesting read. Regarding your opening remark pertaining to solutions, I can say that there are many ways things could play out, and my earnest hope is that the rule of law can be salvaged/restored to our erstwhile Constitutional Republic peaceably. Nonetheless,
