Liberty or Tyranny, which will you choose?
Ladies and gentlemen what should we do if Barack Obama is reelected in November? The Liberal, socialist Left has for decades been trying to force this country and its citizens into becoming a welfare state with the vast majority of us being dependent on the federal government for food, shelter, money, health et al. They do this so they can control us. The intellectual elite on the Left believe that they are somehow endowed with superhuman abilities to direct the lives of We the People and believe us too stupid and ignorant to manage our own lives.“They would be the shepherds over us, their sheep. Certainly such an arrangement presupposes that they are naturally superior to the rest of us. And certainly we are fully justified in demanding from the legislators and organizers proof of this natural superiority.” – Frederic Bastiat
Is this who we’ve become? Is this who we want to be? Have we lost that great spirit of independence and defiance that made this nation the greatest power on earth? Do we want to substituterepresentatives for rulers? Given the current partisan divide and bewildering, in my opinion, support for Obama it appears as though almost half of the population does in fact want to live at the expense of the other half and live in a form of slavery. “The state is the great fiction by which everybody seeks to live at the expense of everybody else.” – Frederic Bastiat
We know what Obama has done and suspect what he will do when unrestrained by the need to be reelected. He will continue to issue EO’s that override the will of the people and Congress. He will continue to use the bureaucracy to force his vision of socialist Utopia upon an unwilling populace; Obamacare was only a first step. “People crushed by laws, have no hope but to evade power. If the laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to the law; and those who have most to hope and nothing to lose will always be dangerous.” – Edmund Burke. Obama, at the behest of earth worshipping environmental extremists, will continue to deprive us of access to domestic energy and as a result drive up the cost of just about everything as everything is dependent on energy. This course of action all but guarantees an increase in poverty as people spend increasing percentages of their incomes on energy.
So do we conservatives just accept our fates and agree to become part of the collective? Do we accept defeat and acknowledge that resistance is indeed futile? Do we lie down and agree to become subjects begging our new masters for bread? Or do we come together and develop strategies and plans to fight back against the state and restore our liberties? How far should we be willing to go to restore and then selfishly guard our liberties? What are our options?
One option I’ve considered, and that will likely never actually happen, is that the Left and Right peacefully agree that the differences between our visions of America are so vast that we can no longer live together in a single country. We would then agree to physically divide the country in half with the Left to one side and the Right to the other. The alternative is a continuation of our cold civil war which may at some point turn hot as conservatives decide against subjugation. As we should all know by now the Left will never give up its efforts to enslave us all to the state and we will never give up our resistance to it. Do we want to spend the rest of our lives fighting against the Left for our freedoms?
Perhaps an Obama reelection will bring the worst as he aggressively continues to push us down the road to full blown socialism and enough Americans get fed up that talk of a second American Revolution or Red state secession starts. I for one am armed and ready and I urge everyone of like mind to purchase weapons, ammunition, food, water, and medical supplies, and to start coordinating your activities with other patriots.
As Americans we have the right to dissolve our federal government if we tire of its abuses and believe it incapable of reform.
“…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their safety and happiness.” – Declaration of Independence
“The people cannot delegate to government the power to do anything which would be unlawful for them to do themselves. … whenever the Legislators endeavor to take away, and destroy the Property of the People, or to reduce them to Slavery under Arbitrary Power, they put themselves into a state of War with the People, who are thereupon absolved from any farther Obedience, and are left to the common Refuge, which God hath provided for all Men, against Force and Violence. Whensoevertherefore the Legislative shall transgress this fundamental Rule of Society, and either by Ambition, Fear, Folly or Corruption, endeavor to grasp themselves, or put into the hands of any other an Absolute Power over the Lives, Liberties, and Estates of the People; By this breach of Trust they forfeit the Power the People had put into their hands, for quite contrary ends, and it devolves to the People, who have a Right to resume their original Liberty.” – John Locke
Will you take a stand for liberty or will you submit to tyranny?
