Leftism 101: Unicorns Crossing Rubicons

20 November 2014 @ 08:13

In the Comments section of my post of yesterday, Suicide Or Consolidation, Shermlaw makes a damn fine point:

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.

Dead solid perfect.

Crossing Rubicons is part of the Grand 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 ’em / Know when to fold ’em / Know when to walk away / Know when to run’.

While it is not in the Conservative Nature to be such a kind of Gambler, there are times when adopting such a tactic is necessary to preserve our Freedoms and Liberties. Many of The Founding Fathers were in possession of a Conservative Nature, yet, they eventually and individually came to realize that the time had come in 1776 to effect a separation from Great Britain. And they boldly and courageously stepped aboard that ‘skiff made out of paper’ — The Declaration Of Independence — and sailed against the prevailing high winds into uncharted rough waters.

We conservatives must be willing, to use a uniquely American cliche, to saddle-up and ride.

Those in Power And Control in America — the Leftists and the Useful Idiots in the GOP Establishment — have declared us, we who seek nothing more than to live under The Constitution Of The United States, preserving the Spirit that animated The Founders, they have branded us as Outlaws.

Well then: Time is running out / Let’s roll…

    I think it is as much a mistake to ascribe too much cleverness to the other side as it is to sugar-coat our situation. And while it’s true they don’t have to be geniuses (they think they only have to outrun the Establicans), they aren’t running from a bear — and the Gods of the Copybook Headings aren’t so predictable.

    I also think it’s a mistake to think that everyone in America who receives benefits from the public trough is dependent on those benefits.

    You and I avoid partaking because we know the moral danger such “benefits” represent, but to most they represent only an opportunity to enjoy an abundance they didn’t have to work to create. When the abundance wanes, necessity will send them back to work, leaving only the irredeemable to fight over the scarcer and meaner slop left behind.

    And they rarely venture outside their own neighborhoods to burn and pillage.

      When all the food is gone in their neighborhoods, they will venture out as far as they must to survive.

        That’s a different scenario than I’m talking about, and one I have never really seen as likely.

    In large measure in our concern for our own safety and prosperity as well as for those of our fellows we properly take into account not the cleverness of the lusting tyrants but their wretched ignorance. Where they believe they run from the bear, they are mistaken: they run into the bear. Their incipient destruction will harm us all, and unnecessarily for all that. It’s the foolishness of it all, the despicably chosen absurdity we rue.

    Actually stepping ”aboard that ‘skiff made out of paper’’ was the naturally ‘American’ conservative thing to do. It was their only option left if they were to conserve their liberties and freedom. What they did was considered radical at the time because it deviated from traditional ”European conservativeism”.
