Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country.
And they cant settle the question through elections because they dont even agree that elections are how you decide whos in charge.
Thats the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.
The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But its not the first time theyve done this. The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didnt really win; that the Supreme Court gave him the election. Theres a pattern here.
What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they dont accept the results of any election that they dont win. It means they dont believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.
Thats a civil war.
Theres no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.
This isnt dissent. Its not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think theyre the worst thing that ever happened to the country. But then you work harder to win the next election.
When you consistently reject the results of elections that you dont win, what you want is a dictatorship.
Your very own dictatorship.
The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to the Democrat Party, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, its inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States cant scratch his own back without his say so, thats a civil war.
Our system of government is based on the constitution, but thats not the system that runs this country. The Democrat's system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.
If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance His power is unlimited. Hes a dictator.
But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President cant do anything. He isnt even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented. A Democrat in the White House has discretion to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesnt even have the discretion to reverse him. Thats how the game is played. Thats how our country is run. Sad but true, although the left hasnt yet won that particular fight.
When a Democrat is in the White House, states arent even allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasnt allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries.
The Constitution has something to say about that.
Whether its Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This is what I call a moving dictatorship.
Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds. You cant serve in if youre not a member. If you havent been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you arent in the club. And Trump isnt in the club. He brought in a bunch of people who arent in the club with him.
Now were seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down.
Thats not a free country.
Its not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an insurance policy against Trump winning the election. Its not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. Its not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. Its not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasnt supposed to win.
Have no doubt, were in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and a leftist Democrat professional government.
Elections don’t give one side the results they want.
We the People are “in charge”.
It will not stay cold forever.
Jeff Sessions says “cool”.
Great article and it really brings it all to light. I don’t think that we can deny that we are a divided country and that there are irreconcilable differences which can not be settled amicably.
We had better decide what we are going to do about it, because when Trump is no longer president the left and the establishment will come roaring back with a vengeance to crush any other person who poses a threat to their power.
When Trump is no longer President ... . Thats been my fear since the election. Weve never seen a leader like this. What will we do when hes gone? Termed out?
You’re right. Most people that i know are sick and tired of this liberal revolt. I cannot believe the disrespect exhibited towards the president and the disloyalty enacted towards this country.
There’s a long list of organizations and people that need to be eradicated as they are a real threat to this country.
Am i angry? You bet?
If it got “hot” tomorrow I’d want to be involved
Trump’s presidency has exposed what many of us always thought existed but never had proof. I thought that once Trump showed the way that Republican patriots would follow his direction and take up the torch.
Not only has that NOT happened many who I trusted have betray the President and US. We are a country on the verge of extinction, oh I don’t mean the US will disappear but it will no longer exist as founded and that is a damn shame.
I don’t have an answer for you my friend, I wish I did..
“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded here and there, now and then are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.”
“This is known as ‘bad luck’.”
- Robert A. Heinlein
America is in for a huge dose of bad luck, and it’s likely to start less than two years after America’s enemies retake power. Good thing I was a Boy Scout back when the Scouts were Boy Scouts and not Scouting BSA: “Be Prepared!”
When it’s all said and done, after the bodies are buried in pits, after the left has pushed too far forcing action and their eventual defeat; what country will the leftist POS’s live in because they can’t stay here. They would be a constant reminder of our lowest point. Besides, they will never change, just regroup and try again. I’m thinking Venezuela and Mexico are good countries for them to be deported to.
The shooting has already started. Ask Congressman Scalise.
The Left hates you and wants you dead.
Back in the 90s when I lived in California, I was alarmed by a new trend: Democrats using the courts to overturn the passage of ballot propositions they disagreed with. At that time, I was wondering when they would go one step further and start using the courts to overturn the elections of persons.
Then, in Y2K, it began.
Thats one of my favorite Heinlein quotes.
IMO if the rats take the House and Impeach Prez Trump, you can count on a Civil War.
Always remember Tuco's dictum.
Sums up what I believe to be happening perfectly. The division also exists among the populace, even more so than in the revolutionary war.
What you said.
I’ve been a Freeper from near the beginning. Five year old daughter who must understand this. DJT is an absolute anomaly, proof positive that God remains in control. That time remains for our nation. For us all.
A lot of wisdom and good old fashioned horse sense in The Notebooks of Lazarus Long...I still re-read my Heinlein from time to time...Timeless...
The only thing that keeps me going is knowing that we are all in God’s hands and His will be done.
Blessing for you and your little girl, my wish for her is that she will inherit a strong, corrupt free nation which lives up to its motto, “In God We Trust.” ;-)
