...who'd dare get in their way of "the plan."
That was, of course, also the attitude of the Communists ruling the USSR in 1990.
And a year later, you see what it got them. If it comes to that here, they can have a choice: go out quietly, like Gorbachav and the Communists replaced by Yeltsen, then Putin in turn, or go out like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu of Roumania in December 1989.
Yea sure, Archy.
But there was an awful lot of misery between 1919 & 1990, too.
Even so, I can appreciate your point.
"If it comes to that here, they can have a choice: go out quietly, like Gorbachav and the Communists replaced by Yeltsen, then Putin in turn, or go out like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu of Roumania in December 1989."
Yes, an excellent attitude.
I pray to God I live long enough to see such a scenario come to fruition.
No argument there; &, who could argue this one's had "a fall" coming for some time, too.
Even if such a fall were only to purge the past 150 years or so of misguidance responsible for taking the nation so far from the framer's original intent.
"One of the contingencies we really haven't planned well for is the possibility that we'll attract numbers WAY out of proportion to what we've expected: What happens if instead of 20,000, we get 200,000, or a half-million?"
IF your organization were to attract a half mil numer; or, for that matter 20 times that?
I'd bet anything they'd be the kind of people one could expect order, cooperation & a spirit not seen on this continent for a very, long time.
Your "problems" would be the kind one might find extremely satisfying, I dare say.
"That may be bluesky,..."
There'll be a lot of people watching y'all like hawks, &, I'll be one of 'em.
The possibility of this dream becoming a reality is exciting enough, but, if it were to become a smashing success?
It'd provide this citizen a golden opportunity to actually *see* which of my friends & neighbors are genuinely serious about the direction this nation's going, as opposed to what they've said.
Maybe even a chance to settle a few other things once & for all, too.
...like whose side God's really on.
