It’s a long way from 1776 and the momentous decision made by courageous and determined men to put aside the oppressive yoke of olde worlde monarchic dynasty and create a fledgling nation consecrated in free men’s blood.
The 56 signatories to the Declaration of Independence were fully well aware that their lives were definitely on the line. The British were not known for leniency, and a charge of high treason against the person of King George the Third was a quick trip to a hanging or worse. Five of the signatories of the Declaration of Independence were tortured to death by the British.
Both British regulars and colonial loyalist militias were accused of atrocities against the colonists, which only served to enrage the Americans even farther. The point is that every single person associated with the revolution was under the threat of death. This wasn’t some high flown political theory… this was right now in real time.
There was no one to help them… they were on their own. By a fortuitous accident of history, the French King saw an opportunity to stick his thumb in King George’s eye later in the war. The influx of men and material enabled the colonialists to ultimately triumph.
Today, we have much the same situation with Barack Hussein Obama and his gang of Marxists. This may be the new American revolution… we’re in a fight to the finish with an entire government and every single person who chooses to identify as a DeMarxist. We’re not simply setting out to win an election, though no one will deny that this is an election we cannot lose.
But it’s more than that. We have to deliver a crippling blow to this evil philosophy of mismanagement, corruption, greed and the erosion of the rule of law. We have to literally break the back of the Democrat Party as it is presently constituted.
We’ll never eliminate the liberal mindset entirely… there will always be those who feel as though someone or something owes them sustenance. But we can send them slinking into the background of history as a nightmare story to be used when children misbehave.
It’s all on us now.
