We are nearing a crossroads in America at a very high rate of speed, and the brakes have failed! A decision will have to be made to yank the wheel to the Right or the Left. Either choice will have serious, long-lasting consequences, and the result will be felt around the world. "We the People" are in the drivers seat, and unfortunately, most of us don't have a license to drive. It is our collective fault that we have allowed each other to "drive" through life without a license, and "we" have limited recourse at this moment in history. Will enough of us reach-up, grab the wheel, and with one concerted effort, steer this nightmare ride back onto a true course? God willing, we will.
From the moment that President Obama was sworn into office, there was a rift forming in America that started to open in a hurry. Within weeks, the euphoria and novelty of electing the "first black President" began to wane, and reality was setting in quickly. "We the People's" eyes began to open, and what we were seeing was not Hope and Change, but Despair and Anger. The Tag-Team-Trio of Obama, Pelosi and Reid were aggressively taking strides to turn our nation into some third-world, Banana Republic, tin-pot dictatorship. The bailouts and take-overs of the Auto Industry and the Banks, the smack-down on Wall Street, the Health-care Deform, the Czars, and the endless list of atrocities, have taken their toll on 'We the People". We took to the streets to protest peacefully, we swarmed town-halls to the point that members of Congress didn't want to show-up. We called, we faxed, we emailed, we got in their faces; but they have failed to listen to us.
The Tea Parties were born. Groups of like-minded, freedom-loving, patriotic Americans of all races, religions, and political parties, rose up to collectively voice their disapproval of the Federal Government and its policies. They failed to listen. We have taken back some prime Congressional seats in special elections, and hammered incumbent politicians in primaries. They failed to listen. We have begun to grab hold of the wheel, but will it be enough? We have the momentum, but do we have the political will, the fire in the belly, to fight the onslaught of Liberal hatred that is about to besige "We the People" in the coming months leading up to that fateful day in November?
I believe that we have two choices:
Revolution - Yank the wheel to the Right...
The Founding Fathers gave us the perfect form of term limits and regime change - the ballot box. Unfortunately, "We the People" have not been good stewards, or students, of history, and we have neglected our civic duty for far to long. Pitiful, painful, pathetic politicians have been elected and re-elected, over and over, to the point that our Representative Republic is a hollow shell of its former glory. That tide has begun to turn. I pray that it is not too late, and that our momentum does not wane. "We the People" have begun to rise-up and take back our country, and by doing this at the ballot box, the Revolution will be mostly peaceful, albeit very vocal. The Left will not go quietly into the night, and they have not even started to drag their artillery up to the front lines of this battle. We must be prepared to fight, to the death if necessary, because this "war" is going to get nasty... The Purple People Beaters, the Progressives, the ACLU, and the MSM will yell, scream, fight and lie till they're vanquished. When we are at our darkest moment, with all the hatred spewing our way, will we light the torch of Liberty and stay in the fight? The good news is that we have our B-52's loaded with truth and reality, ready to rain-down hell on the opposition. We have learned Alinsky's rules well. We have studied the opposition. Will we take the fight to them and keep them on the defensive? Time will tell...
It will take decades of persistence to roll-back the Progressive, Statist mess we find ourselves in. Those in the general population who have had their hands out for generations, are going to be really, really angry when we start to trim-back and eliminate all the government programs, agencies, and regulations that have created the government-teat-sucking cycle of dependency. The road to self-reliance will be littered with the bodies of everyone who is unwilling to "change" or adapt to their new reality. We must be willing to step-over, go-around, or drive over anyone who stands in our way of re-taking our Republic! With the Online Right and God's Might, we can win this war peacefully. There will be bloodshed, but it will be caused by them as they realize the DOOM they are facing. "We the People" will have begun the onerous task of righting this ship. No Liberal or RINO will be safe from our reach!
Failure to win this November leaves us only one other choice...
Civil War - May God have Mercy on their Souls...
If we fail to re-take at least one house of Congress, the peaceful Revolution will not happen. The match will be lit. We will be forced into a very ugly, bloody, Civil War that will make the first one look like a Sunday stroll in the park. The extreme Left will have at least two more years to cram-down Socialist legislation that will destroy America at her very core. All the crap that has already been passed will begin to take effect. Our taxes will skyrocket, our health care as we know it will vanish. The unions will have their Card Check and all businesses will be taken-over. "We the People" will not be able to afford gas for our cars, or electricity for our homes and businesses. Fifteen million illegals will be granted amnesty (health care, social security, education, etc.) and the border will still be wide-open. Our National Debt will roar past our GDP, and our country will be bankrupt. Life as we know it will cease to exist, and the dark-days of a dying socialist experiment will be our reality.
The Americans who still have some semblance of reality (and fight left in them) will begin to organize into small, then huge militias in the various States. The skirmishes will start out small in fly-over country, and there will be serious bloodshed as the Government attempts to quell the uprisings. Remember that match being lit? The Governments' use of deadly force on her citizens will ignite the rage that will sweep across the nation, like a wildfire on a hot, dry prairie in August. A lot of very good men and women will die fighting for our Liberty and Freedom, but as Thomas Jefferson wrote...
"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all and always well-informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. We have had thirteen States independent for eleven years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century and a half for each State. What country before ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon, and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."
At the very least, the major metropolitan areas will be isolated (they are already surrounded by Red) and there will be no escape. To get anything in or out of a Blue county, it has to go through Red at some point. Good luck with that. When the Blue areas are sufficiently starved, they will come looking for food, and they will either be set right to the facts, pardoned or pacified. If not, we will refresh the tree of liberty with their blood!
Time will tell how things turn out. I pray every night that November rewards all of our hard-work and perseverance. We have an opportunity to change Americas' course, and we must be good students and stewards of history. We must not let the radical Left retain power, and we must be dutiful to ensure that those we put in power, keep their word, and fight for us. Anything less than one-hundred percent commitment from our elected representatives is unacceptable. We know that power corrupts and it is our duty as citizens to keep their feet held close to the fire at all times. Serving "We the People" is not a career, it is a responsibility, and one that should not be taken lightly. They will listen to us or be sent home!
A few closing thoughts. For those of you that know me, I abhor violence and civil unrest. I like to be allowed to live my life as I see fit, and allow others to do the same. However, I will not stand idly by and watch my Liberty and Freedom be taken from me by our Government. I spent way too many years becoming an American citizen to watch her go down in flames. I will defend my God, Country and Family from all enemies, foreign and domestic. They can pry my gun from my cold, dead hand, as they step over the first half-dozen or so that try!
May God Bless America in her darkest hour.
