"THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman." Thomas Paine, from the essay The Crisis, December 23, 1776
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. Abraham Lincoln
Oh how prescient these men were. And so again weve reached that point as history repeats itself. Once again a Republic finds itself rotted from within and corrupt to the core and on the precipice of dictatorship. Will we suffer the fate of the Greeks and Romans and Weimar Germans or will the people rise up and throw off the shackles of the impending dictatorship and restore this once great Republic to the principles and rule of law contained in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution? Hopefully the American people are made of stiffer timber than those whom have passed before us. Time will tell, but one must admit that time is getting shorter, with each passing day the storm clouds of another far more devastating civil war gather in the distance. There is still time to stop the impending dictatorship through the ballot box; but as more organs of the press, academia, big business i.e. those too big to fail, and the establishment wing of the Republican party become cheerleaders, supporters and propagandists for the wannabe dictator, the window of opportunity fades as the winds of progressivism threaten to extinguish the flame of liberty, and the ability of the people to stop it at the ballot box draws perilously short.
Thankfully there are several elected officials that are calling for the dictator wannabe and his acolytes in the executive branch, and elsewhere, to be held to account through impeachment. They are called the Tea Party caucus and they deserve the support of all Americans, at least those of us whom still support the Constitution. The Tea Party Caucus and the Tea Party candidates whom will be running in the next two election cycles are the last best chance to preserve and restore our Constitutional Republic without armed conflict. Hopefully I am wrong, but history suggests I and others whom harbor the same opinion, supports this conclusion. IMHO
And since the NSA, used as it is by this administration as their personal Gestapo, will capture this email and save it for posterity and proof of guilt for whatever charge they think up when the time comes and the camps are open for business, let me just reiterate that I do not advocate for an armed conflict, rather my rantings are just a prediction based upon historical precedence. Of course this qualifier will not make any difference since the next step in the advancement of dictatorship, if were defeated at the ballot box, will be the same kind of kangaroo courts seen in banana republics and Nazi Germany, thus evidence will not matter and the verdict will be pre-ordained. For proof, just look to recent history and the machinations of the executive branch attempting to pervert the justice system to obtain a conviction of George Zimmerman for political purposes rather than justice. The executive branch of the federal government organized marches threatening riots if not convicted. That my friends are what we would expect in places like Venezuela or North Korea, not in America. That alone should have prompted impeachment charges against the President and the Attorney General if we lived in a country where the rule of law was still sacrosanct. But alas it is not. Although in the end justice was served the fact that the attempts were made to fix the trial, and that the opposition party did nothing to prevent this attempted perversion of law prove beyond doubt that the rule of law is in grave peril in our country.
I appeal to all of my fellow Americans, and especially to those whove actually taken the oath to preserve and protect the Constitution, to get involved in the process, not just by giving money to Tea Party candidates but to volunteer time to help them. One of the things we must do is to walk precincts with our candidates and attempt to persuade those whom are persuadable that the caricature of the Tea Party, created by the press, the democrats, and the GOPe are incorrect and based upon lies about what we stand for. We are entering the end game for elections and they will become a thing of the past unless we win in 2014 and 2016, most importantly to sweep out the GOPe because they are progressive wolfs in sheeps clothing, everybody recognizes what the progressives are, they are open about their cult of personality and want of an imperial executive, but the GOPe go about the business of advancing progressivism with as much stealth as they can muster and now with the acquiescence of big business using the US Chamber of Commerce as cover. If we dont go all out to win and end up losing there is only one result after that and it is almost too awful to contemplate.
I submit it is far, far later than you think.
Know what time it is.
The ballot box is no longer a viable option to preserve or maintain our natural rights. We are already become a MarxoFascist dictatorship.
we’ll have to agree to disagree on that point. My belief is if it was too late to change it elections would already have been banned and Obama would have already disbanded Congress and the USSC. Don’t lose hope my friend, get involved now in the political process for the Tea Party candidate in your area/state while it’s still possible.
I'm with INVAR...I submit it is far, far later than you think.
After all, a comfortable couch negates the burden of most shackles.
We limited government conservatives and Christian conservatives had better understand now: in November of 2016, a Christie/Romney type nominee will be the official GOP presidential "choice" of wholly rigged and arranged primaries, and we're going to be looking once again at the "hold your nose and vote statist liberal Republican because the other guy is worse and third party only guarantees Democrat victory" syndrome.
Likely, Democrats will be voting for their candidate/nominee thinking the same, that he/she stinks but the Republican would be worse.
If we really want to take advantage of the ballot box, we must EMBRACE the power of a third party to force leftist statist politicians of either party into a weak plurality win.
Jettison the very stupid "conventional wisdom" that Perot "ruined" things and start realizing that indeed, Perot, by splitting the vote among an American populace who rightly rejected the Uniparty D/R candidates (HW Bush v Clinton; Dole v Clinton) by majorities in BOTH elections (Clinton never received the support of even half of the voters -- the first time, 57% voted "against" him, the second time, 51% voted "against" him) -- by splitting the vote to force a plurality win on the victor, the victor (Clinton) was so weakened politically (not with the MSM, which loved him, but in real world politics) that his first term, he was snowplowed with the Republican Revolution, and his second term, he was impeached.
Had it not been for third party politics, that probably wouldn't have happened; instead, Clinton or HWB or Dole, all three of them big government statists in mind and deed, would have been powerful "victors." The third party impact of Perot was GOOD FOR CONSERVATISM in the big picture by denying power to those statists.
So it is time NOW to embrace the fact that in 2016, our only hope for weakening the leftist president, D or R, who will likely win, is by voting Third Party in order to force that victor into a plurality so that he/she is WEAK and on defense.
Both of you offer an opinion but neglect to offer any evidence in an historical context help prove your contention. But I understand your point. On the other hand both of you seem to support my conclusion, written on another blog, that the dems and GOPe are engaged in psyops against the American people with the goal being to beat them down mentally such that they believe that there is nothing they can do electorally to avoid the coming dictatorship such that the candidates that would oppose them will never get elected. I hope you guys have not fallen into that trap and simply given up on an electoral solution. If you have then their psyops are obviously working. Please tell me that’s not case.
I concur with INVAR as well, the time for the ballot has long passed.
We have ballots? I thought we have outcomes, then we go through the election motions.
So if a one party MarxoFascist dictatorship does not look like you expect - it's not a dictatorship?
Congress has already been neutered. SCOTUS has been stacked and corrupted (see John Roberts) and the Machine is furiously working to make sure Pelosi is make speaker in November.
The Soviet Union had "elections" every 6 years. Care to guess how 'free' those 'elections' were? We are become worse than the Soviets - Cook County went national, I've already seen it at work and 2012 ought to have been your first real clue how far gone we are.
I have no hope whatsoever in the institutions that have been corrupted by the MarxoFascists and the Ruling Class.
Watch what happens in this year's 'elections'. You will end up shocked, bewildered, and in a state of disbelief - but maybe then you will understand how late the hour is. There is no remedy or stopping this juggernaut by any civil means. They do not uphold the rule of law now, what makes you think they will adhere to any electoral result they disagree with?
It is far, far later than you realize. Pray and prep, your faith in the system and this people is misplaced in an age of universal deceit.
I see the psyops have worked very well on you. Either way if the shooting war comes we will be on the same side.
Revolt is coming.
No it isn’t. If O-holeCare hasn’t gotten people to take to the streets, nothing will.
Psyops? I judge the fruits and actions and consider the lessons of history and experience, not vain hopes or optimistic expectations.
None of you believed Obama would get a second term. None of you believe Pelosi will be made Speaker again.
You do not know what time it actually is. For all your warnings of 'time growing short' - you fail to recognize that your solution is already so out of date - it's dead.
Hearts will fail in bewilderment if they place any hope in elections from keeping us from where the MarxoFascists and Ruling Class are taking us. And that will kill any chances for successful resistance.
You INVAR (and others) talk as if the alternative course to the ballot box will ever happen. At least fatman is making an attempt to do something. I commend him for that.
We shall see is all I am going to say.
Finny’s post is well worthy of you time.
So far INVAR, you have proposed nothing, you’ve only talked trash. Come up with a course of action and let it be known. As I said you’ve already played right into the hands of those hoping to impose dictatorship and you offer nothing in response. You’ve already surrendered and that is the point of the psyops that have been played against you and the sad thing is you don’t even realize it. In fact you seem to be one of the people you have no faith in, I guess there’s some symmetry in that.
Thank you. I am glad to see that some understand the point of my commentary, others not so much. The American people are an amazing lot whom I believe will not allow the flame of Liberty to die, whether that be by ballot or by force of arms, to steal a line from FDR “with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph — so help us God.”
So it is written, so it shall be, again as history repeats itself and it will happen even though some have already surrendered. To them I say stand aside and let us do our work without interference; one must make a choice to either lead, follow or get the heck out of the way.
