What Is To Be Done?

08 February 2015 @ 01:05

For this post only, just call me: Bob Aleksandrovich Lennon [if you get the reference, you get a cookie].

In commenting over at Protein Wisdom the other day, Serr8d remarked:

The pendulum might swing a bit to Right, but #LosingMoreSlowly ensured it will never return far enough Right to stabilize, much less preserve our little Republic. Barn door’s been left open for far too long.

I’m heavily leaning towards believing that the Elections of 2016, both Congressional and Presidential don’t and won’t really matter.  The national government is too far gone down the Rathole Of Despotism, down the Sewer Of Tyranny, to be able to save.

It is, perhaps, time to cut our losses, as it were, and spend our valuable energies rebuilding The Republic in a smaller size.

I’ll have expanded thoughts on this to share in the near future, but I wanted to get this out there to see what you think.  I do read every comment left [oh, that word] here, but find it difficult to respond to as many as I used to — apologies tendered.

    The problem with another Republican ascendancy will be the mistaken impression that conservatives and conservatism will be the governing philosophy of our Republic. Meanwhile the civil service commissars will still be there turning the wheels of the fourth branch of government.

    The only way to get our Republic back is to fire each and everyone in the civil service, do away with all those superfluous federal departments and return control to the states where it belongs.

    And those civil servants who were the most aggregious usurpers of Americans’ constitutional rights, should be tried for crimes against humanity and tarred and feathered, if not out right hung to set an example for the rest of them.

    Secession is the only answer.

    Just beating the dead horse here, but yes succession will be the final result.

    The only way to pare down the out-of-control fed is to fire pretty much all of it. Since that will never happen the states will eventually have to give it the old ‘f-u’ and tell the feds to get bent.

    Even the chances of that are slim. But that’s the primary reason I hate all the talk of Walker running for Pres 2016. Dumping Walker down the shithole that is D.C. will just give another opening for a marxist asshole to win the WI Governor spot while doing abosolutely nothing good on a national basis.

    Lost the war in 2012, most won’t realize it for decades.
    They’ll blame the end of America on GWB or whoever ends up being the last Republican president. The fault is ultimately Americans, they voted for surrender twice.
