Well, it's been a Hell of a year end. My wife lost her mother and I started a new job after spending almost 5 months out of work thanks to my company going under. But that's old hat, so I won't be writing about that. Instead, I want to write about some of the things that are pissing me off the most right now. Conservatives.
Oh, that made some eye brows go up. Yes, conservatives are pissing me off, right now. Actually, they have been since the march on Washington this summer. It should have become apparent then that no amount of talking, phoning our congressmen or senators, or letter writing and demonstrations were going to do any good. Hell, check my posts for last April and I told you then that it wouldn't work. I've said this before, when a people loses their ability to have their voices heard they have to get their government's attention. There is a natural progression for this and I've run through that too. But the conservatives in this country seem to have lost their nerve. They called and wrote letters. They went to tea party rallies. They even squirled up the courage for the largest, and as far as I can tell, first conservative march on Washington, D.C.
And what did they have to show for all of it? Exactly nothing. They were ignored by those in power and those that carry their water. Not once have I heard a 9/12 group or Tea Party group talk about marching on the capitol building with intention of shutting it down. Or even to have a mass show of PEACEFUL force, by having everyone that went to the march on D.C. repeat it with a loaded dear rifle slung on their back. Loaded but not brandished. Nothing to get the point across. Now we are coming into the next election cycle and the optimism that I am reading from politically right wing blogs on the chances of taking the congress back is really starting to irritate me for its simplistic views.
Do I expect the GOP to pick up a few house seats and even bust the 60 vote majority of the Senate? Sure. Mid-term elections always go bad for the party in power. Will that allow the Republicans to remove what the Leftist have done? Of course not. Any bill that was put through to Barry would be summarily vetoed and no way could a 3/4ths majority be mustered to over-ride the veto. So, we and our future generations are still screwed.
And that's assuming that you expect the Libs to fight fair and actually let the voting process take a natural course. Every year the Leftists get better and better at rigging elections and perfecting how to get away with it. I would like to point out that the Black Panthers that tried to bully one precinct with weapons, was never prosecuted by the Federal or state governments. In November, we can expect much more of the same. And yet, I've not heard of one organization that has any plans to do more than roll over for it the way they did for that ass-hat comedian (alleged. Personally I've never laughed at a single one of his jokes) in the Senate.
We have lost that fire in our belly that told us we were a free people and that we would place that above our lives, our comforts, and our petty concerns for personal gain. We think that because we've marched and called and written letters, that these people are going to respect us and our opinion enough to turn around? Face the facts folks. The whole damned playhouse is busted. According to the Declaration of Independence, when a government has become tyrannical, it is the DUTY and OBLIGATION of the People to throw down that government and remake it to preserve our GOD-GIVEN rights.
At some point in the recent past, I have gone through a metamorphosis of a sort. I am still a patriot, I love this country. But I no longer hold any love or affection for the government in power. It is a bastardized half-image of what our Founders wanted. It must be remade. So, my prayers have changed from a returning of our government to the founders path, to a prayer for dissolving of the union through secession and a remaking of it. A Much more bloody path to be sure, but one that will ultimately be more effective at renewing the tree of liberty.
