Suicide Or Consolidation?

19 November 2014 @ 14:19

A question for all of you: Is the Left In America, by it’s actions, committing suicide? Or are it’s endeavors going to result in a consolidation of it’s Power And Control over us?

Roger Kimball thinks it is the former [tip of the fedora to GeoffB]:

This latest folly by ideologically-motivated Democrats [the voting down of the Keystone Pipeline by the Senate], who put their party before the people they supposedly serve, is a prescription for suicide. We witnessed part of that ritual earlier this month when the people issued their tart referendum on Obama’s policies. The concluding pieces will come in the following months as Obama endeavors to circumvent Congress and the Constitution and govern by dictatorial fiat. The Founders feared just such an eventuality, and they provide a mechanism for dealing with a rogue executive.

Before the election there were few voices on the right that dared to utter the i-word. Now you can scarcely turn on a television news show or scan the latest headlines without stumbling across the word. The country’s experience with Bill Clinton still has people terrified of impeachment. But an errant president, bent on imposing his will on the country, in contravention of the Constitution and against the wishes of the majority of the people, has no mandate. On the contrary, he has lost the confidence of the country. With every day that passes, the chances improve that his impeachment would be followed by conviction in the Senate.

We’re not there, not yet. But the president has made it clear that, far from being chastened by his humiliating defeat at the polls, he is ready to “double down,” go it alone, and engage in an all-out dictatorial press. The people, I predict, will not stand for that. And once that is clear, the Senate will, however reluctantly, take up the process where the House will have left off. Impeach. Convict. Remove. Unless the president changes course, and soon, that will be the mantra in 2015.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

    Certain men, believing themselves great and therefore due subservience, pray to die. What an odd way to seek greatness, to demand to be humbled by death.

      Suicide by voter.

    Suicide is a deliberate act so, since liberals don’t even know they are self-destructing, I wouldn’t call it that.

    Involuntary self-inflicted manslaughter maybe?

    There will be no impeachment hearings in the House. And if by some miracle there were there would certainly be no conviction in the Senate. The fear of the ensuing ” frank exchange of views” in the inner cities alone will be enough to prevent that. Not that that’s any reason not to do the right thing, but there we are.

    I thought Joe Biden was impeachment insurance, but two years of him as a caretaker…

    There are certain Rubicons which cannot be “uncrossed.” This President is intent upon crossing as many of them as possible, because he does not have the respect for our system, nor does he have the restraint which is necessary for a leader in a republic such as ours. I had held some small hope that he would step back from the abyss, but he will not. He is determined to destroy what’s left of this country on his way out, and the feckless Congress will let him, simply because they’re more concerned for their own places at the trough than they are with the oath they took to protect, preserve and defend the Constitution.

      Crossing Rubicons is part of the Leftist Strategy. They believe [and are probably correct] that, once a Rubicon is crossed, the tendency in the vast majority of cases is not to go back to the status quo ante, the way things were before the particular Crossing.

      The Left are high-stakes gamblers who, forgive me, ‘know when to hold / know when to fold’.

    Impeach, convict, remove, imprison.

    As long as the palace guard in the MSM does Obama’s bidding it will be very hard to convince the average voter that he needs to be impeached.

    The Democrats are nearing the end of a power grab of such magnitude that they could care less what their opposition thinks or does. Regardless the last election, they still have a majority of ignorant cannon-fodder Americans supporting them; and more on the way, given the floodgates opened at the borders.

    It’s just a matter of time now before their tyranny gets violent, because repression of dissent is intolerable. Do they have the stomach for the violence a civil war will bring?

    Heh. Even their cannon fodder outnumbers us.

    “Impeach. Convict. Remove.” And imprison.
