Whereas with the IRS , Fast & Furious, "gun control," the Hutaree "militia" and many other examples, the government is bringing the full weight of the despotic, administrative state to bear against its political enemies, real or imagined, while large segments of the press and the Left (but I repeat myself) cheer them on.
The notion that a normal election process is going to correct this when the media act as the semi-official propaganda arm of the Democratic Party is quaintly naive.
The most effective action would be to organize at the state level and get the states to assert their sovereignty by nullifying federal acts, tossing out federal bureaucrats, and telling federal judges to go eff themselves. But that would take courage and the ability to articulately defend the notion of Liberty against the unholy alliance of corporate welfare queens (banksters, contracters, cheap immigrant labor) and the Left.
I've come to the conclusion that the belief that a normal election process even still exists, is quaintly naive.
