Questions We Can No Longer Avoid
In a posting over at The Other McCain this afternoon, after citing several recent examples, we get some very thought-provoking ruminations from Smitty:
People in positions of trust seem increasingly criminal in their approach to their tasks. Worse still, and this is the question I’m throwing out here, is the only remedy for honest people to engage in increasingly lawless behavior, with break-ins here and feigned criminal activity there, in order to support reform?
These were non-violent acts. One hopes that the reasonable, honest and sane can generate sufficient revolution at the ballot box to preclude worse.
This has been on my mind, as of late, as well. As I wrote yesterday in the final paragraph of my posting on Obamacare:
If we lose this battle, then we must work even harder to throw out each and every member of the Congress who voted for this power grab next year and neutralize the Executive. If we fail at those two things, then it would appear our only recourse will be, shall we say, a more ‘active’ resistance.
We may be facing many of the same choices that the Founding Fathers did. I think that each and everyone of us who loves America must be prepared for this scenario. One has to ask oneself: how far are you willing to go to preserve, protect, and defend the United States against all enemies domestic?
The Leftists in power seek nothing less than an overthrow of EVERYTHING America is and stands for. They want nothing less than to make everyone subservient and enslaved to their version of the state. And they are willing to do so by any means necessary. We have no choice now but to take the time and contemplate what we are willing to do, how far we are willing to go, as the situation gets worse. And signs indicate that it WILL get worse.
I had hoped that it would not come to this, that we would be forced to ponder such questions. But our hand has been forced because we let the cancer that is Leftism gain a solid foothold in America.
In the first sentence of his posting, Smitty asks: ‘Are we moving into a new stage in the struggle for liberty?’
The answer appears to be a resounding ‘YES!’.
The Founding Fathers warned us that everyone must pull guard duty in the fight to retain our freedoms and liberties. A final question: will you shirk your duty?
A final thought: How friggin’ sad that it’s come to this.
