2010 will be the watershed year for the survival of the American Republic. During this year we will determine whether we wish to adhere to the vision of the Framers of the U.S. Constitution of ultimate individual liberty or ditch the whole thing and embrace the notion of most in the present government that the vision of Chairman Mao, Hugo Chavez, Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, and Fidel Castro is the ideal.
The debate as to whether or not the Obama Administration and the current Democrat-controlled Congress is Maoist/Marxist in nature is over. Abundant evidence has been presented during the past year that shows conclusively that the present government in the U.S. prefers the vision of Mao, Marx, and Chavez over that of our own Founders such as Madison, Jefferson, and Henry.
Thus, it is futile to engage in such a debate any further. The dye is cast. The charlatans have been outed.
This government has proved itself to be the enemy of the American citizens who only want government to leave them alone and do only that which is spelled out specifically in the U.S. Constitution.
2009 saw the beginnings of citizen unrest with Tea Parties, the 9/12 Project, the Oath Keepers, the Town Hall meeting protests, and others who are sick and tired of the daily onslaught against liberty being perpetrated by this government. We have every reason to believe that such unrest will only grow more vehement, given that our elected officials have ignored the cries of the people.
And the thing that has essentially sealed the fate of this government in the eyes of the ordinary citizens is three-fold–1) The manner in which Obama and the Democrats in Congress rammed through a healthcare takeover against the wishes of most citizens, 2) The obvious fact that Obama and company are asleep at the wheel when it comes to terrorism, with the Fort Hood massacre, the attack on the Detroit airliner, and the decision to proceed with the closing of Gitmo although the thugs that are being released and sent elsewhere are now fighting against us again in the war on terror, and 3) The ominous and secretive change to an executive order in the dead of night by Barack Obama that gives INTERPOL complete immunity from U.S. law and places them out of the reach of the provisions of the Constitution.
Of course we can add to these the fact that Obama has made the wildly unpopular decision to bring 9/11 terrorists to New York City to stand trial in civilian court, provided with full legal protections offered to U.S. citizens including taxpayer funded lawyers, and allowing the terrorist thugs to have a platform from which to spout anti-American hate.
One can sense in the heartland that most Americans have made up their minds about this Administration and its bond-slaves who run Congress. They want no more of it. They are sick of it. They are appalled that such things could happen in their beloved country.
Add to this the fact that Obama loaded up his Administration with self-avowed Communists and those who have publicly praised Chairman Mao who systematically slaughtered 70 million Chinese in the Communist takeover, and your have the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.
Americans–the real Americans–the patriotic ones–have had enough, and they want their country back.
Thus, what is the next level of protest? Everything we have tried thus far has not worked due to the refusal of our elected officials to listen to the citizens.
What the citizens need to do is to ‘protest with teeth.’ Pitchforks and torches.
The next protest needs to be massive, persistent, demanding. 20 million citizens are needed to move en mass into Washington and demand that this current government cease and desist from its onslaught against our liberties and our Constitution, or else we will shut it down until new elections can be held.
