Good evening, my good friends. Welcome to another session of these fireside chats via the Internet. Tonight, although I am not one to encourage anyone to drink, you may need some strong brew for what I have to say this evening.
So, you might want to break out the Scotch, the Vodka, or the Sake. What I have to present to you will quickly sober you up from a stupor.
Someone asked me today how I am doing a week after America lost its freakin' mind and reelected a dangerous fool to office, and even sent back to Congress his enablers who are just as dangerous for the country as he is. I responded by saying that I am feeling better but doing much worse. I am more pessimistic about the future of this nation than I was a week ago.
This election has hit me very hard, and I mean VERY hard. I was certain that most Americans still had their heads screwed on straight, that when presented with the facts they would see through the lies, the smokescreens, the duplicity, and the deception and oust the thugs from the White House and Congress. Little did I know that the Marxist Progressives now have the majority, albeit a very slim one, in this country. The Constitution is no longer the ultimate law of the land. The law is whatever the charlatan in the White House, or the rogue Supreme Court, or the joke of a Congress, say it is. They now have no restraint on their power. Their authority is absolute and unbridled. The clear limitations placed on their power by the Constitution are ignored.
This time, no one has a viable excuse. The truth was proclaimed loud and clear about who and what Obama really is. The facts about his dangerous political ideology were presented incessantly before the public. Thus, there is no excuse for ignorance. The country knew who and what he was and what he stands for. And they voted for it anyway.
Some believe that Obama actually lost the election but due to massive voter fraud he got away with stealing an election. There is some evidence that indicates that may be true.
But what, realistically, will be done about it?
Do you honestly expect anyone in this government, in Harry Reid's Senate, or Eric Holder's Justice Department to actually investigate thoroughly and honorably each and every case of possible voter fraud that occurred on election day?
And House Republicans have shown that they have about as much "balls" as a eunuch. As a effective check and balance to Obama and the Senate's wild excesses, they have shown they are, for all intents and purposes, totally worthless.
And the Supreme Court? Mmmm. Herein lies much of my deep distress. Obama will now have the opportunity to appoint two or three more Marxists to the bench, and the Senate under the control of Democrats will approve anyone he sends up.
Do you know what that means? Let's say that Obama only gets to appoint two more justices. That means that the Marxist Progressives will outnumber the conservatives 6-3. Can you image what such a Court will do? Gun rights? Gone! Freedom of speech? Gone! Kagan has already said the government has the "right" to limit free speech. Freedom of the press? Gone! Expect the mainstream media to be canonized as the official voice of the government and expect the conservative presence on TV and radio to be scaled back significantly. And there won't be any such thing as "private property" once the United Nations' Utopian vision for a "fair" society is implemented.
If Obama gets to appoint three more justices, there is a chance we could have a 7-2 split on the Court, meaning there will be only two conservatives left.
You see, THIS is what this election meant. This is why I preached to the top of my lungs for the past four years that this election was the most important since the Revolutionary War...even more important than the election of 1860 and following, during the time of the Civil War. I also preached to the top of my lungs that Romney was the wrong choice for this particular time. We needed a hard-nosed dyed in the wool conservative who would have placed Obama on the hot seat for his crimes from day one, and kept him on that hot seat until the last vote was counted on election day. Times such as these with crooks such as these running the government call for bold, brave, brazen, and hard-nosed opposition. Instead, like four years ago, we got milk toast.
And we lost the country.
In short, my friends, we are screwed unless drastic action is taken, and I simply do not believe most Americans, even conservatives, have the stomach for it. I have completely lost my faith in my fellow citizens, and there is not much anyone can do to gain back my trust apart from something drastic.
I am quickly coming to the conclusion that our only hope for liberty to be regained and protected is what patriots call "Jefferson's reset button." I do NOT relish the thought of living out the rest of my days as a senior adult fighting a civil war. But I am quite certain that the only thing that will save the Constitution and therefore the Republic itself is exactly that. The ballot box is not working. "Majority rule" has given us "tyranny by majority vote." Democracy is nothing more than despotism by majority rule. By a simple majority vote every single liberty guaranteed in our Constitution can be negated IF we were actually living in a democracy. We do NOT live in a "democracy" and never have. We live in a Constitutional Republic that is built around the notion that some liberties are so vital to human life that they should not be subjected to a majority vote, that they are sacrosanct no matter WHAT the majority wants.
THAT is freedom. THAT is liberty. Democracy never meant liberty or freedom, and that is why our Founders considered it to be dangerous. I truly wish our politicians and citizens would drop that word from usage when referring to our form of government. It is a big lie and terribly misleading.
If you believe in this "majority rule" business, then you are just as flat out dangerous as a Communist or Nazi. Stalin, Hitler, and Chairman Mao had nothing on you when it comes to tyranny.
So, in order to safeguard our freedoms from further encroachments by this illegitimate government that has broken every conceivable Constitutional law and principle known since our founding, we must restore the Constitution to its rightful place as the supreme law of the land and oust the usurpers who now occupy the highest offices in the land.
If the ballot box didn't work, then the next course of action will be swift, permanent, and history-altering. Jefferson foresaw the time when this would be necessary. He was convinced that the natural tendency of human beings is to vote themselves gradually into more and more slavery. And at some point a deadly line is crossed. It becomes more important to the citizenry to have a little "security" and to vote themselves a bounty from the public treasury than it is to preserve liberty. And it is at that point, said Jefferson, that a mid-course correction of the shocking variety is needed.
And it is at this point that the minority says to the majority, "There are some things you are not allowed to do no matter how big a majority vote you get." You are not allowed to trample on my gun rights just because you get a majority vote. You are not allowed to trample of my free speech rights just because you may get a majority to agree with you that what I say should be disallowed.
Someone within this past week asked me where they could get in touch with "the underground liberty movement." But I am not the one to be asking about such things. I am part of no movement. I do not belong to a militia or any covert group. I know such groups are there and to those who seek diligently they can be found, but I am not part of them. The reason is not due to any animosity on my part. It is a matter of logistics. I am getting older. I have some chronic illnesses that prevent me from engaging in certain activities.
And of course I am fairly high profile. I know for a fact that I am being watched and monitored by the powers that be, if for nothing more than to see who I know and who I have contact with. They won't find much, because most of my contacts are also fairly high profile who are also being monitored.
My point is that I am not going to lead the jackbooted government thugs to any covert group that stands for liberty the way our Founders intended. If they want to find such people they can look for themselves. I am not going to do their dirty work for them.
Sometimes people say they can't believe I put my picture on the Internet. Well, I had that done for me when I became a writer for the Examiner. It was a requirement. So be it. As I said, everything I say and do is pretty much out there for all to see. What you see is what you get. If this is my God-ordained role, then so be it. But I do not represent any movement either officially or unofficially. I am a conservative Christian American, in the tradition of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Henry, Adams, Coolidge, Goldwater, Buckley, and Reagan. I read for myself and come to my own conclusions. I do not allow others to think for me or tell me what to do. I believe the Constitution is the supreme rule of law in this land, and therefore, much of what has been done since the middle of the 20th century has been largely illegal. When you get right down to it, this travesty all started when the Income Tax was implemented in the early 20th century, and when the Federal Reserve Bank was created at about the same time.
Since that time Americans have gradually discarded the rule of law. They allowed Woodrow Wilson to throw millions of American citizens into internment camps for nothing more than their race and ethnic background during WWI. They allowed FDR to confiscate the gold that millions of Americans owned during the Great Depression--gold that the government stole from its citizens in order to keep the federal treasury from going bankrupt. FDR was a worthless thief who should have been hauled to jail. And he, too, like Wilson, sent millions of American citizens packing to internment camps during WWII. Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, I'm sure, were most proud. And then we had the gradual vilification and rolling back of Second Amendment rights. We even had some so-called "legal scholars" arguing earlier this decade that the gun rights mentioned in the Constitution are "collective" and not "individual" rights. What barefaced, sorry, worthless, demonic LIARS! The Framers themselves, IN THEIR OWN WORDS, told us that they wanted ALL CITIZENS to keep and bear firearms as a means of guarding against tyrannical and oppressive government!
And now due to a complete imbecile, a joke, a buffoon appointed to the Court by a Republican president, we are now being forced to buy health insurance policies whether we want one or not. Roberts could not find any legal justification or "precedent" for such a ruling, so he made one up out of thin air. He should be impeached and disbarred.
And now we have a Chicago thug reelected to the Oval Office, who lies in every breath, a criminal running the Justice Department, a tax cheat running the Treasury, a Vice President who acts half the time as if he has advanced Alzheimer's, a Secretary of State who has bungled foreign policy like an amateur in the Middle East, Libya, Iran, Syria, and Israel, and tells a pack of lies about a massacre of American officials at our consulate in Libya.
Who in their wildest dreams could have imagined such a sick joke being foisted on the public? And our fellow citizens proceeded to vote for this clown show yet again? Once due to ignorance is forgivable. Twice, after all we know about this gang of Ringling Brothers buffoons, is UNFORGIVABLE.
Yes, I still believe that if you voted for this abomination, this travesty, you are an imbecile, a moron, an idiot, that is, if you are not demon-possessed.
Who would vote to perpetuate pure evil except others who are held in the grip of pure evil?
I believe that we are now under divine judgment, not because God is vindictive toward sinners but because we bring upon ourselves dire consequences by our actions. Each act we take has its own accompanying consequence, good or bad. And in this case, how can we expect a vote for these corrupt clowns to result in anything other than the most dire of consequences?
I remember one evening when I was praying about my country and these dark and distressful days, I received the distinct message that the light had gone out on America. I even felt that a light had gone out within me for merely being part of a society that has perpetrated this evil. Yes, when a nation shakes its fist in God's face, even the innocent have to suffer along with the guilty.
The weeping and gnashing of teeth that is on the way for this nation will hit the righteous and the unrighteous, those who made the right choices and those who did not. Maybe it is because those of us who are aware did not do enough all along to prevent the country from going this far into darkness. For sure, most of us could have done much, much more, but we were not fully awake until we were jolted out of our slumber one day in 2008 and realized that while we were asleep the enemy not only got through the gate but made its way right to the control center. At that point we were awake alright, but we were probably too late. Too much dirty work had been done by Marxist vermin while we were in our long sleep.
An now we see the consequences of failing to exercise constant diligence, just as our Founders warned when they said, "The price of liberty is eternal diligence." We did not exercise constant, eternal diligence, and the enemy slipped in unaware.
My friends, this is not going to end well in the short term. The coming economic meltdown may do all the work for us in defanging the enemy. When the money dries up in a true economic meltdown, then there is no money to feed people or "meet their needs." The suffering will be too widespread and overwhelming for government to do much about. It is then that conservatives can come in with the way out. In the end, we will prevail, but getting there is going to be hell.
If no economic meltdown occurs, then other action may need to be taken to restore legitimate government to this land. But that too will not end well in the short term. In the long term, however, we will prevail because we have the motivation, the fire in the belly, the burning for liberty, the Founders' vision, the blessing of God on those who love freedom, and, well, we have the fire power. We WILL prevail one way or another. But again, getting there is going to be hell. There will be much pain, loss, and agony.
But the question we all must ask and answer is, is it worth it in order to live in a land as free men and women rather than slaves?
