Beck: Blow-up coming by 2010
Glen Beck Show | 2/10/09

Posted on 02/10/2009 7:36:55 PM PST by pabianice

Beck was animated tonight. He predicts some sort of blow-up/revolution by next year. Rationed healthcare for those over 50. Obama's Brownshirts. Three trillion dollars down the toilet in ObamaAid. The Left confiscating private firearms. Illegal aliens getting "stimulus" money and amnesty. The Obama war on religion. The second and third ranking Justice Department nominees child pornographers and anti-military hatemongers. Interesting.

What does my sign-up date have to do with anything? Free Republic has certain rules that members agree to follow when they sign up. Members should keep their word and obey such rules especially when said rules are there to protect the board and owner from legal troubles. Is that so hard to understand?

Unlike Hannity, Beck has been busy reading, educating himself and talking to ecomomists... HE really needs even more visibility on Fox than his afternoon show.

“Americans simply do not have the stomach for it anymore, and the federal government is simply too powerful to defeat in a military confrontation.”

Your wrong on both counts. I guess back in the day the British Army looked too powerful also but a “ragtag” Contintental army fighting with the right tactics won

“We have no choice but to work within the system.”

And when that system is obviously suspect due to 4.5 BILLION tax dollars going to support vote fraud perpatrators like ACORN? How much good does working within THAT system do us?

OK. So, how can we help you cave so as to avoid confrontation? I mean, if the feds are that powerful what makes you think they’ll ever listen to you, so why are you here and not thinking of clever things to do to support them? If can’t beat them, join them, right?

I watched the program this afternoon, it wasn’t insanity. The healthcare issue he was discussing is IN the stimulus package and it indeed rations our healthcare... and socializes medicine all in one fell swoop.. Turns out Daschle had told the democrats the only way they could get socialized medicine passed was to stick it into a spending bill because most people wouldn’t know it was there until it was too late — so the did — and most people are clueless that it’s there.

“I’d almost guarantee the United States will be less than 50.”

You hit it dead on. Either they will already be less, or will have filed to secede. The fallout from either will be overwhelming and far reaching.

Excuse me, but the Left is doing a damn fine job destroying liberty, not the Right. If we fight, we fight for our God-Given Liberty, and for the Constitution. They have both Houses of Congress, the Presidency, the Media AND the Bureaucracy. At a certain point, we are left with very few options. They want us to fight back, to have an excuse to take away the freedom of We The People.

Yes. One thing he said today was when he started warning people over a year ago this financial meltdown was coming he lost his radio ratings, station owners called and asked him to tone it down because he was scaring people, he said he would rather not have a show than to lie to people and he feels it is his calling to tell people the truth that is going on around us right now. IF people haven’t been watching, they really should DVR this and watch it in the evening...

The military will stay out of it so long as it stays political. And I don't think The One is dumb enough to bring them into it. Too much risk on his part. First they voted overwhelmingly against him in the last election. So if he pushes too hard they might say no, which puts him in a very bad place.

In addition any one of a few units going rebel could bring down Obama's administration without firing a shot. What if 1st armored division down at Fort Knox went freelance. Not shooting mind you just used an M1 to open the door and the tank transporters to empty the piggy bank. What if the crew of an Ohio class decides to go on strike because their pay isn't arriving regularly. This isn't like the bounty where they can be allowed to just vanish. And how do you threaten someone with the power to devastate a continent? The answers are too nasty to contemplate, and do Obama will never put the military in a position where they would need to think about it.

I would not be so sure about that..There is a simmering anger out here and I do think there will be a revolution of some kind. I was thinking about this obscene stimulus thing..lets get the total of it, then find out all the places that are going to get this so called money bailout..then if it is a program we don't want our tax dollars to be applied to, determine the % of that particular category and deduct that from our income tax so that our money goes where WE want it to go.

"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Look, I sympathize with the frustration many are feeling here about the direction our country is headed in, but talk of open revolt or even civil disobedience is crazy. If any groups ever attempted it, they would instantly be labeled terrorists by both the government and the media, and most Americans would then see us as the enemy. Obama would have the excuse and support he needed to openly target anyone on the right and wipe anyone opposing him out. Conservatism would be dead as would our country. Think about it.

“Rebels will then find themselves going up against the most powerful military on the planet without any support from the rest of the world. How long do you think they will last then? A month? Two months?”

Lol...the war in Afghanistan is going on it’s eight year battling the Taliban who in no way compare in size, firepower, or technology to the coalition forces. I’d give the rebels at least 15-20 years based on this alone and coming out with the victory.

That theory hasn’t worked against the illiterate Muslims armed only with AK-47 and RPGs in the sandbox. We’ve been there 5+ years and still can’t get them settled down. What makes you think better armed, equipped, educated, trained, and military experienced Americans would fair so much worse?? Not to mention we outnumber any forces by far, far greater numbers than those over there. Sorry, ain’t buying the “lay down your arms, ya ain’t got a prayer” argument.

I don’t know about Beck. I’ve only heard him once or twice, so I’m not claiminig ANYTHING for or about him.

But, humanly, because of the sin nature that affects even (by human estimation) good and upright men, all real visionaries, prophets and seers have temporary moments of insanity. Many are eccentric and very hard to deal with.

Hear, hear. The way to get the Marxists thrown out is to make them abject failures. There WILL be an election in two years, no matter how much Chicken-little crying we hear here. People will throw the Dems out if they have no jobs, as long as we are smart enough to make sure that they know that the Dems are at fault.

The Internet has perfect memory. Why do you think the Dems hate sites like FR so much? Our job over the next two years is twofold:

1. Clearly and concisely lay out EVERY Dem economic failing. We all know where today’s “stimulus” will lead — economic disaster. We just need to connect the dots for the “average” sheep.

2. Do everything in our power to ensure that the Dems do indeed fail. If we lose focus and give them the economy we gave the Clintons, then we richly deserve whatever happens to us. Anyone too squeamish to face four years of Carter, this means you. The Dems know that their base is not their tax base; they are the moochers, the leeches, and the need US to fund it. We can deny them that. It’s time to limit our spending to bare necessities, and do everything we can to find less expensive ways to survive. A dollar spent is a dollar that Zero can tax.

This is war, but not the kind that some people think it is (and if you disagree, then fine, let’s see if YOU can organize several million armed Americans before you get rounded up.) That’s just crazy talk, and counterproductive.

Thankfully, you weren’t born during the time of the American Revolution, you would be utterly useless to the cause. People said the same things you are saying about the patriots during that time period and I for one am glad they didn’t listen to it and went ahead and risked everything for their principles and our freedom. Those same freedoms we used to enjoy we are losing now with collectivists firmly in control of government and the media.

Are you sure?

People like Adams and Jefferson amongst others were very reluctant for revolution for a long time. It took many repeated ‘Injuries’ of many kinds to get them to move forward. They too often spoke of the unbeatable power of England as a sobering reason to do nothing.

Americans now are suffering repeated ‘Injuries’ by our govt like never before in history.

Though it doesn't look like we will do anything, rebellion is in our blood and heritage, and we've sat at the dinner table too many nights angered by what our govt is doing to us!

May I suggest watching the DVD John Adams Miniseries, and reading the book. The only account I know of the first 50 years of our history in proper context for a true understanding of our countries birth. Many people then were no more motivated to do anything about King George than we are now with our govt.

What I see as appropriate for now in the 21st century is a Nationwide Tax revolt. Perhaps an organization like Human Events, or the Heritage Foundation would start a National Tax Revolt movement, maybe build it up like the NRA, as tax ‘Injuries’ are Federal and Statewide. There are multiple tax revolts occurring in California right now. Search the KFI 640 John & Ken page for a look at the ‘Head On A stick Campaign’.

***There will be no revolution. Americans simply do not have the stomach for it anymore, and the federal government is simply too powerful to defeat in a military confrontation.
