yeah, things are bad. A very large percentage of Americans are takers instead of producers. Romney failed to differentiate himself from Obama. He was not an ideologue. He was a nice guy who thought people would vote for him because he was a nice guy. We have to have a conservative candidate who can try to educate the electorate and illustrate why the Dem Party and socialism are evil. I’m not saying it’s assured that candidate will win. But we ran a moderate Pubbie who should have stomped a walking disaster like Obama. He lost. In four years if we lose with a genuine conservative, it’s time to talk about splitting up the country.
If you want to have that conversation in 4 years you be wise to start it now as many of us already are. It will take a great deal of effort and origination to put together a 2nd American revolution.
We will require decades of planing and perpetration before we get to that point, and so far we have but 4 years into that road, and anther 4 still to come.
Do as you think best driftless2, But I see this game is already over. The American repubilic is dead as the Constitution practical limits on Government power, and the democracy that has taken its place has already in the process of murdering itself.
Frankly it is that process that we should be watching for that process is the process by which wealth is compensated from those with the sprite and drive to be productive and rewarded to those who choose to be idle thieves.
As the productive are driven out of business and onto the doll they or their children will cease to be patriots and become yet anther part of the mob seeking to consume the next bit of our population.
In this way we patriots are on the clock. If we are to stop this cycle we must amutate(secede) to cut ourselfs off from the criminal reach cancerous criminal bit of our population.
But each day that we wait & prepare that goes by the cancer will spread. It is thus wise to begin preparing the political, physical, and moral ground work for the revolution now, so that when the time comes that you decide it is nessary we will be ready.
Your argument is very reminiscent of the perpetual argument against 3rd parties: we can’t support a third party because we have to give the gop just one more chance. But some day in the ill-defined future date, we’ll try something different. And that ill-define future date never comes.
This was not just an election defeat, it was a repudiation of the values that we as conservatives hold dear. The choice couldn’t have been much more stark. I am no great fan of Gov. Romney, but to his credit I don’t see anyone else who could have done any better. Yes, he is a lot further left than I like but given the choice between radical socialism and a sort of liberal moderate conservatism, the people picked radical socialism. And it wasn’t even close.
At a certain point you realize that Ronald Reagan is not coming through that door on his charging steed.
