Fed up: Anger rising across America
Fox ^ | 7/7/14 | K.T. McFarland

Posted on 07/08/2014 4:59:07 AM PDT by workerbee

**SNIP**

We are now governed by elites, some the second and third generation of elites, who have decided the rest of us aren’t smart enough to govern ourselves. They believe modern society has become so complicated that government needs to be in every nook and cranny of it, making the decisions for us, for our own good. They know what’s best for us.

This growing dissatisfaction hasn’t reached a boiling point, but it shows no signs of simmering down. The signs are everywhere.

**SNIP**

She finishes with:

But maybe the Leviathan just gets too big to ignore and the people rise up, and vote them out of office, en masse.

Given the corruption she enumerates, I have little hope that's even possible.

People have tried elections . . . and seen them invalidated repeatedly. Remember Prop 8? At this point, the only possible solution is dissolution of the country.

Americans will show their anger by continuing to vote democrat. It’s just what sub-human filth, intent on detroying their own heritage, nation, and civilization, does.

I actually skipped a primary for the first time in my life. It's all BS. Obama was absolutely shocked the night he was “re-elected”. That said all I needed to hear.

Probably true....Even Obumbo could not believe that Americans would want a Communist/Marxist nation.
I will never again underestimate the stupidity of the American electorate.

Well, in many ways that is true....

We have let the progressives successfully dumb down, brainwash, make dependent vast numbers of Americans...

They have been trained to look to the government whenever life becomes overwhelming because they have been denied the critical thinking skills and ability to take care of themselves...

I live in a red state. Western South Dakota. The tea party had no shot. We will win Johnson's Senate seat in the Fall I am pretty sure. But it changes nothing. The Pubbies will just continue to shoot each other down like they always do. I am pretty fed up with the lot of them.

We have a handful of conservatives who are standing but very few. Most of them are doing what they can to preserve their rich, elite lifestyle in D.C. They love going to those parties and feeling like they are among the “populars.” They have not lived long enough to know that the narrow road leads to the promised land, not the wide path that leads to destruction.

Just think France....1789.

Buchanan said on TV yesterday, what has happened is we the right have become the counter culture now. We allowed it to happen by neglecting what was happening in the media and the schools to name two.

IOW, we are like the poker player who looks around the table and cannot find the one who is the sucker not realizing it is us.

Yep that true. When I lived in Indiana, there was the Evan Bayh-D of Indiana. When he was in Indiana he sounded reasonable. The you'd hear what he said in DC, two totally different things.

Out where I live we just have to get more votes then the grass eaters east of the river to win. We have only one Congress Critter. We really don't see much of them. Just as well. We moved out here so as we'd be left alone.

...”I will never again underestimate the stupidity of the American electorate.”...

Remember the terms “instant gratification,” and “the individual me?” Those are the rules of the generations educated in America’s government schools. Only fools work hard and try to leave this planet a better place than when they found it. Others do everything in their power to suck off those who work and their robbers can be found in the government who take the biggest slice of the blood, sweat and tears of the taxpayer to line their own pockets. Look at the tiny cost of birth control for well off leftist women..$9.00 a month and it was used as a propaganda tool to assist the steam roller in Washington D.C. against the taxpayer!!! If we had a media, this would not be happening.

“A Call To Arms”
by Mike and the Mechanics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzHHj1cBDJk

Pass the word, it’s a call to arms
Midnight man at your door
Blackened faces run in the night
Daybreak under the floor

Bring my bow
Fill my head with flame, and we must
Let them know that the torch is lit again
Crystalize the pain behind your eyes
Are you ready to fight?

(You hear the drum and) run for your life
(Sweet Avalon the heat is on)
In other words, I hope and pray
That time and tide wash the hate away
A simple man with simple thoughts
Who turned to force as a last resort

All around us, chaos rings
Buildings crumbling down
Silhouettes in the fiery rain
Timbers crash to the ground

Bring my spear, invested with my youth
Bring the children near, they must now be told the truth
Old and young and those of foreign tongue
Are you ready to fight?

(You hear the drum and) run for your life
(Sweet Avalon the heat is on)
In other words, I hope and pray
That time and tide wash the hate away
A simple man with simple thoughts
Who turned to force as a last resort

In other words, I hope and pray
That time and tide keep the day away
When simple men with simple thoughts
Will turn to force as a last recourse

“Silent Running”
by Mike and the Mechanics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_zWl8xnT00

Take the children and yourself
And hide out in the cellar
By now the fighting will be close at hand
Don’t believe the church and state
And everything they tell you
Believe in me, I’m with the high command

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

There’s a gun and ammunition
Just inside the doorway
Use it only in emergency
Better you should pray to God
The Father and the Spirit
Will guide you and protect from up here

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Swear allegiance to the flag
Whatever flag they offer
Never hint at what you really feel
Teach the children quietly
For some day sons and daughters
Will rise up and fight while we stood still

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me running (can you hear me calling you?)
(Can you hear me) hear me calling you?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running babe?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running?
Calling you, calling you

Where I come from they call that, “Job Security”...security until the American people get so outraged and disgusted they vote the bastards out and replace them with more corruption and the process starts/continues all over again.

“Americans will show their anger by continuing to vote democrat.”

Couldn’t have said it better.

There is a growing part of the electorate that loves the shenanigans of Progressives and the reactions they’re eliciting from the “knuckle-dragging, bible-thumping,
gun-loving, Christian morons in flyover country”.

(and it continues to rise from 40% and up-shameful)

IMHO

Liberalism’s nannyism is a play toward the natural human(ist) tendency to believe yourself to be “elite”.

My libinlaw once stated that “60% of the people are too dumb to make their own decisions”. Right there was the implication that she was “special”, an “elite”, not one of “those people that can’t make their own decisions”.

No thought was given as to why it didn’t use to be that way,
or that liberal policy actually ENCOURAGES incompetence.

When your policy is based on “someone pooped their pants so you all have to wear diapers”, the next step is to make sure that more people poop their pants in order to justify your policy.

“At this point, the only possible solution is dissolution of the country.”

But... but... but if the country is dissolved who will service the 18T debt, the bond repayments and support the dollar? See, if it happens a lot of very wealthy and powerful people will be deprived very large payments on debt as well as a significant reduction in the value of their capital and power. Ergo, they won’t let it happen. Reference the NSA, oligarchy-run MSM and your local police’s Armored Personnel Carriers for supporting evidence.

In 1775 we didn’t have peaceful, constitutional means to press our demands to the rights of Englishmen.

The Framers gave us Article V to address the current crisis, to reestablish republican freedom.

I do not believe that Article V was the intended remedy. Indeed, the present unrestricted suffrage, with enough bribed voters, to block anything worthwhile, practically eliminates anything even mildly constructive, coming out of one of the Amendment processes, at this time.

America's Founding Fathers would never have imagined that things would drift to this point, without a complete upheaval and new start.
