My God, I just never thought in just 6 months or so that Biden and his democrat buddies could get things as screwed up as they are but then again, I think I was deluding myself that they would not.
Fact is that we are in a world of trouble right now. ‘Covid-scare’ is still a power tool for the autocrats in government. I have heard noise of a mandated vaccination and know that will not go very well with a big portion of the population; including myself for that matter.
Masks and lockdowns are starting up again. People are dropping dead after getting the jab and we are not supposed to ask why or say a word about this. Time will tell what we see as the next coercion to force us to get the jab but I am sure it will be pushed by the mindless members of the ‘Pravda’ media.
We have a few hundred political prisoners being held in solitary confinement by the feds for walking in the capitol on the 6th. Where is amnesty international?????? I know, a rhetorical question….. Maybe it is time we marched on the prison where they are being held without trial which is a violation of their rights under our Bill of Rights. I imagine that the insurrection of the 6th that the democrats have imagined having happened will pale in comparison to the armed citizenry that could march on the federal prison to get these people out of there.
We marched on the 6th as patriotic Americans (unarmed) who wanted our voices heard and our concerns addressed. We have been ridiculed and labeled as terrorists. We have been called insurrectionists and outcasts of society. They describe all 80 million Trump voters with this broad brush.
Regarding Insurrection and our American history in regards to this, a little history lesson is in order at this point.
On July 4th in 1776, the Colonial Congress declared war upon the crown. This was not a sentiment that was universally popular among the colonists. It took the leadership of the Colonial Congress and those many brave Americans to prod the citizens into the battle. They organized the army and militia and directed them in effective ways to win the Revolutionary War. It was the leadership of these brave men that brought us our independence. The insurrection that was the Revolutionary War was initiated not by the population directly. It was represented and focused by these members of the Colonial Congress.
In comparison to today, we have a large portion of our nation (80 MILLION) who are very dissatisfied with the goings on in DC and around the country. We abhor the open door at the southern border and the insurrection (real violence and destruction) in our inner cities and the lack of any palpable response from the “child fondler in chief in the oval office”. What we lack as a group is a leadership that can direct our energies to changing this. Problem is any action other than political is treason or insurrection both of which are serious and potentially deadly charges.
Am I suggesting revolution? No, but it seems that the more the left does to tear this nation and its heritage apart the more likely that will come to pass and it is on their heads if it happens. Am I suggesting armed actions by citizens against the government? No, that is treason and I am an American first and will do all I can to avoid any action that is contrary to that. However, we patriots are not the only ones who are proverbially ‘poking the bear’ as far as instigating violence. We have been the butt end of the policies of the left that has destroyed our heritage and nation and is an anathema to our American Culture.
President Trump is a great American and he is a patriot. He is not going to take any course that would change that and he sees the solutions we need coming from within the political system. I respect him for that but have my doubts that we can save the nation or restore it to a pre-socialist status without some serious resistance from the leftists who are embedded in politics and the deep state. They will not go quietly into the night. Even if we win the White House in 2024, we will be faced with a solid wall of resistance of the left who want our nation to resemble socialist Europe and not the independent and proud American heritage we were born into.
Our federal courts and law enforcement agencies are infested with socialists and liberal activists. They are polluted to such an extent it would be easier to replace them with new agencies that have new hires who are screened to ensure they are not closet political activists such as we are seeing in the various alphabet agencies. Create new agencies and fire the rest. Sounds easy and it is not as I know.
I read an interesting article today where a foreign born person noted that we are in a post-constitutional society. That our government and various political actors and agencies regularly act outside of the Constitution with impunity knowing that it takes years to get any non-complying policy or action they take halted or reversed. Politics has taken over the courts and the process so much that law is subjective. I am afraid that this person is correct. Our rights are constantly under assault and our recourse is always years in the future if we resist and with the politicized courts we may not get satisfaction when our case is finally heard.
We see the rights of the citizens who are being held due to the events of January 6th who have been denied their right to a speedy trial or what is known as ‘Habeas Corpus’. Sixth Amendment to the Constitution guarantees a speedy trial so citizens are not held indefinitely prior to trial.
Instead of Trump supporters, if these were BLM or Antifa activists that Trump had locked up we would not hear the end of it. Because these are conservative, patriotic and loyal Americans who sought to demonstrate non violently their displeasure with the government and the conduct of an election they are being punished in ways that Stalin would be proud of. I noted at the time there were a few who did act in ways that are illegal and not in keeping with a demonstrative nature of the event and they should be held to account for their actions. However, holding them for months without a hearing, legal counsel or in solitary confinement is worse than how we treat terrorists and these are Americans who were unarmed and simply inside a building they were let into. Then there is Ashley Babbitt who was murdered by a Capitol policeman who was not threatened physically who can be seen in pictures of the event brandishing a pistol in an unsafe and reckless manner. This is obviously a case of ambush as he did not warn or otherwise advise of his intention of utilizing deadly force before he did just that. This officer should be subject to a trial for his actions.
As human beings, emotions are what drive us as individuals. They are expressions of love and care and also anger and upset. Being upset is not a reason to go to war. The concept of sanctioning violence against the government is something we must look upon as being a last ditch option. As upset and angry as we may all feel, we must act within the law if at all possible to advance our agenda. This is of course, the opposite of what BLM and Antifa have done but keep in mind, we are being held to a higher standard because the left controls the playing field; at least for now.
I can say with certainty that a divided nation is not an option as a means of resolving this problem. Our national institutions are too enmeshed in every state, every region and every aspect of our society to simply raw a line geographically and think that life can exist separately in each area and not have problems. In fact, the urban areas cannot exist without the rural areas supporting them in every way. The silicon valley nerds will starve and die without the power and resources that are funneled into their areas from the wilds of “Fly over America”. As much as they despise us as being hicks and ignorant farmers they cannot survive without us. They know this and fear it. A divided land is not going to be acceptable to them. We would not be allowed to ‘secede’ from this nation due to this.
All of this being said, I do think it is time for an open discussion about what we, the 80 million people, can do to effect the changes we want to see. No talk of insurrection or revolt but in how we as a group can affect the policies we find objectionable. We must avoid the temptation or acting out in any way that utilizes violence; at least for the time being.
So, how do we demonstrate our dissatisfaction with the policies and agenda of the inner city politicians who have co-opted our government and polluted it with socialist policies and anti-American agenda.
I have a suggestion.
Shut it down.
Fly over America goes on strike.
Stop the power. Stop the trucks and cars. Stop the trains. Stop the communications. Stop everything. Anything that has to pass through flyover country would be stopped.
We need to do this for perhaps 10 days. Long enough for the inner cities to get hungry and cold or hot. Long enough for their phones to die. Long enough for them to run out of gas. Long enough for some real pain to set in these leftists lives so they know we are angry and unhappy and not going to take it anymore.
Let them see what it is like when we saw our little towns and businesses go bankrupt during the shutdown while the government paid people to not work. Let them feel what it is like when they are not in charge if only for a week or two.
I can think of little else that will demonstrate our dissatisfaction legally and without the threat o charges of treason or insurrection.
This would be the STRIKE that Ayn Rand spoke of in “Atlas Shrugged”.
Shut it down.
SHUT IT ALL DOWN!!!!!!!!
It is time to flex the muscles and controls we have. We can hold out longer than they can and we outnumber them.
If we do not unite in our dissatisfaction and act as one to demonstrate this we will forever be trampled upon by the likes of Schumer, Pelosi and Biden and Obama and the rest of the liberals who treat us like dirt.
