It has begun…….
The last few days have given proof that a shooting war has started in our nation. A civil war between factions, not states.
The battle is over political philosophy and doctrine and not over a singular social issue. There is a faction who have decided they are unhappy with the system that brought us from 1776 to the present and they want to completely replace it with socialist based concepts that are truly foreign to our original system of government set forth by the founders.
One problem is that the socialists have done the same thing as Mao and Lenin by claiming that the system in place is patently unfair and that if they are given power they will ‘distribute’ the wealth of our nation out ‘fairly’. They are the arbiters of what is fair or not and to a great extent this is a revenge based movement and not one dedicated to promoting a fruitful society.
Just as we have seen in Venezuela that the people voted their way into a system like this only to find that they are starving to death, we will inevitably see our nation follow the same path. This is also what happened in Russia and China. Once you slay the motivation of making your own way in life and earning as much as you can and replace it with government defined ‘equality’, you find people are not willing to put the effort forth if they cannot reap the benefits of their hard labor and creativity. You cannot mandate people to excel solely for the benefit of others.
The socialists had to wait until the WWII generation as well as most of the Korean war generation were gone before they could take their movement to the mainstream. It would not have been tolerated by those who remembered the brutal actions of governments supposedly dedicated to equality as were seen before and during WWII, and after in nations such as China, Cuba and various eastern European nations that were crushed under the Soviet thumb after WWII.
Problem is that even if we can stop the drive of the socialists this time around, as long as they are a viable political entity we will have to keep fighting them and they will up the ante seeking more and more violent confrontations so as to create martyrs to use as symbols of society’s unfairness. This is even if these supposed ‘martyrs’ are criminals and had been engaging in criminal acts at the time they met their fate.
Our nation had the red scare and despite the awareness of the dangers of communism and socialism now we see them as a threat not just in our society but in our government leaders. This presence in our government by people professing these beliefs that are antithetical to our founding actually is the threat is the end of our freedoms as we understand them. You have to understand that to the left, freedom is unfair because they do not control it. Only when everyone is equally imprisoned in a economic and socially controlling systems will they supposedly be free and equal. I would add that they are they generally unable to fight their way out of the controls they find themselves in as well. You see, disarmament is merely one aspect. Curbs on free speech for some as well as the mandatory activities directed by the state are controls such as in our public schools are used to maintain order in a socialist society.
Our founders would be spinning in their graves if they knew of the treachery afoot in our nation today including within our government. Everything we are hearing from the BLM and ANTIFA and socialist representatives is in diametric opposition to the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Those founding concepts and documents are the hindrances that the left seek to destroy.
We are in a shooting war now. Blood has been spilled in socialist controlled cities with only the conservative (founding documents) based individual being held accountable. This is the pattern we should expect to continue until these revolutionaries are pushed out of power and their followers either arrested, driven from the field or put down whatever way is necessary. We can no longer sit back and expect others to pull our weight along with them in protecting and preserving our nation. It is time to stand and be ready to do what is necessary to protect the republic.
