Remember when the American people rose up in outrage to resist Obama’s illegal, trillion-dollar health care takeover? They flooded town hall meetings across the country for months with massive crowds furiously demanding that politicians reverse course immediately. Then there were the polls. Then there were the historic upset victories against Democrats in Massachusetts (Scott Brown), New Jersey (Chris Christie), and Virginia (Bob McDonnell).
The American people screamed from the rooftops in every way they knew how that they did not want this Marxist, economy-killing attack on free market health care (because it would needlessly destroy the system that eighty-four percent of Americans were happy with, based almost entirely on lies). But condescending elitist snobs in Washington responded by telling voters to sit down, shut up, and take what they were given.
It was at this moment that it became unmistakably clear that this is no longer a representative government. Those who were supposed to be taking their orders from this increasingly appalled electorate had completely abandoned their oaths of office, hijacked the republic, and turned it against its rightful rulers—the American people.
Since then, it has only become even more clear that words and voting can no longer restore our utterly trampled rights and liberties. After Democrats blackmailed and bribed Obamacare through Congress, the presidential election of 2012 was then rigged for liberals by the nomination of the guy who authored the state version of Obamacare—leftist Republican Mitt Romney. This was made possible by liberal states allowing Democrats to vote in Republican primaries.
Then, the Supreme Court ludicrously contradicted the authors of the law (and its own previous assertions) to illegally redefine and legitimize Obamacare as a massive tax hike. This, of course, completely ignores the fact that the Constitution provably does not authorize the Federal Government to do whatever it feels like, simply by calling things tax hikes.
As with slavery, segregation, Japanese internment, etc., the Supreme Court regularly proves itself to be on the wrong side of history and tramples the Constitution more than almost anyone at this point. It’s treasonous refusal to defend the citizenry against even the most blatantly illegal attacks on our God-given right to self-rule has officially removed all doubt that it is an open enemy of the American people, and cannot be counted on to restore anyone’s rights and liberties.
Then, there were the huge, sweeping victories for Republicans in both the House and Senate in the last two elections. The GOP responded to this historic, across-the-board support by completely surrendering on every front and fully funding Obama’s Constitution-shredding amnesty, environmental extremism, and Planned Parenthood.
The American people are running out of peaceful ways to reclaim what is rightfully theirs. All indications are that Washington is now a liberal, one-party system with a flaming socialist wing (Democrats) and a moderate wing (Republicans)…with zero actual representation for the American people.
Regular citizens are being stabbed in the back and thrown under the bus at every turn. And as they are endlessly bankrupted, impoverished, and enslaved by the rampant abuses of lawless tyrants in Washington, they are increasingly willing to resort to desperate extremes (Donald Trump) to stop the insanity.
Only a bold, unapologetic conservative proposing drastic measures can pull us back from the cliff at this point. And as we are violently shoved into the re-enslavement phase of the liberty-tyranny cycle, if that person is not elected president in 2016, we will be left with civil (or un-civil) disobedience and/or secession. In other words, we will officially be out of peaceful remedies.
Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence that when government becomes adversarial to the rights and interests of The People, it becomes both the right and the responsibility of The People to rise up and “alter or abolish” that government. And as John F. Kennedy once warned, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.”
But history teaches us that people often will not dare to risk everything to revolt as our Founding Fathers did until they have been deprived of some basic human need. As Claire Wolfe put it in 101 Things to Do ‘Til the Revolution: “America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.”
