You ever feel like giving up? I mean, giving up on America; giving up on trying to keep America the kind of country you grew up in. I don't need all the psychological pain--who does? I don't need the anger, the never-ending astonishment at what is coming out of Washington. The whorishness of the Obama media. The disillusionment of knowing deep down that for whatever reasons a majority of Americans think communism is the best way to go. That's what we're doing you know? Not liberalism, or progressivism, or socialism...it's flat out no bullshit communism. The financial sector goes first, then the automotive sector, soon to be followed by health care, energy and the military. Big brother?
This is way beyond Big Brother. This is a politburo ( czars ) putting out endless five year plans designed to make us all equal, meaning poor peasants dependent on the local Duke for his life giving largess; mandated gas mileage targets for new cars so no one can own an SUV or other chariot of affluence that assaults the sensitivities of the green weenies; control of CEO salaries to cut down the number of yachts and thus limit the carbon footprint of the pleasure boating industry and preserve the self esteem of the boatless; outlawing incandescent light bulbs and replacing them with the energy efficient and long lasting florescent bulbs that won't fit in your lamp fixtures and put out the light equivalent to a 6th century candle; funding corrupt organizations and labor unions like ACORN and SEIU so they can use taxpayer money to proselytize for the communist cause and find more dead people to register to vote; spending our cash like it's all Monopoly money to weaken the dollar and push for a new "global currency" ( workers of the world unite! ) because the American dollar is naught but a tool of capitalist greed; working to "give" taxpayer dollars to developing nations ( third world shit holes being raped by ruthless killer dictators ) with "Climate Change" initiatives as payback for Western Civilization "dominating" said shit holes by introducing modern medicine, the rule of law, and other assorted alien technology, like roads and flush toilets; sapping the morale of our military by giving them impossible missions with impossible deadlines and impossible rules of engagement, because the military is the ultimate tool of Western Imperialism, while at the same time granting constitutional rights to throat-cutting barbarians held in Gitmo by putting them on trial in civilian courts as if they were your run of the mill convenience store stick up men.
Alice In Wonderland? The Matrix? Dante's seventh ring of Hell? Timothy Leary's best acid trip? The Reverend Wright's ultimate wet dream? Pick your nightmare.
All of this in less than a year. Obama has another three years to go. What do you want to bet that come 2012 there will be some momentous emergency that prevents the scheduled presidential election? Perhaps the election will be put on hold while we see if the Mayan prediction of the end of the world actually happens. Maybe a giant asteroid will be detected just six months out from colliding with Earth. Maybe the black messiah manifests himself in Obama's morning bowl of Count Chocula.
I would give up, except for one thing...there's nowhere else to go. There's no frontier, no undiscovered country, no new world. I'm not able to emigrate to Barsoom or Ring World or Middle Earth. I'm stuck in this world...and if America becomes just another failed experiment in freedom, I'll be dead...because I refuse to be a peasant, or a subject, or a slave.
If this continues, there will be blood shed.
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. ... God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion; what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms." -- Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787
Does America still "preserve the spirit of resistance?"
