If you’re a conservative, you don't need to silence the opposition.

In fact, we conservatives want liberals to talk, to make buffoons of themselves, to prove their folly. We want liberals to expound upon their ridiculous ideas, to show the world exactly what they're about. Nancy Pelosi? Give that tiresome woman a microphone. Chatty liberals are the best advertisement for conservatism.

Although I generally agree with the sentiment of this article, the quote “legitimate rape” comes to mind...

I'm inclined to believe that we cannot allow the left to violate the rules when they can, and then bind ourselves to those rules that prevent quick action when (and if) we ever retake the reins.

I'm afraid we need to consider extreme measures to at least UNDO the damage the Left has done, kind of like evoking executive powers during a time of war. And trust our leaders to reset to the norm afterwards.

The left has already broken with precedent. We'll need to follow suit to fix what they've destroyed.

Socialists Advance Totalitarianism As Their Words And Deeds Are Not Challenged.

Five easy actions:

1. IDENTIFY Socialists/Totalitarians.

2. DEFUND socialist collectives.

3. DEPOPULATE socialists/totalitarians from the body politic and their enablers/sycophants from your life.

4. EDUCATE family, friends and anyone who is receptive.

5. CONGRATULATE yourself on a productive life enjoyed and well-lived.

It’s easy to…

Good points, skeeter.

Victims of Lawful Plunder

Men naturally rebel against the injustice of which they are victims. Thus, when plunder is organized by law for the profit of those who make the law, all the plundered classes try somehow to enter — by peaceful or revolutionary means — into the making of laws. According to their degree of enlightenment, these plundered classes may propose one of two entirely different purposes when they attempt to attain political power: Either they may wish to stop lawful plunder, or they may wish to share in it.

Woe to the nation when this latter purpose prevails among the mass victims of lawful plunder when they, in turn, seize the power to make laws!

Conservatives need to follow the rules.

Keep our hands and hearts clean. When the reckoning comes let democrats be the one's covered in filth and lies. And yeah, the reckoning will come...

The way we're fighting elite liberals is the only way possible. The press is in their pocket - elite liberals can kill, break laws, rape etc... If we were to jay walk it would be on the front page of the New York Times.

Democrats also have their criminals in the IRS, 'FBI and Homeland poised and ready to attack us. Being totally clean at all times is our only shot at stopping our country from becoming a third world totalitarian hellhole. Stay the course...

Thanks for the historical reference. My hope would be we would be motivated by the former.
