Part one of a series of political commentary on the upcoming breakdown of the nation.
America is broken there is no doubt about it. The political system in Washington DC has become so corrupt and distorted it’s not even funny. America knows that to be true. Average Americans both on the left and the right in this nation see the problems within the system in place in Washington DC. Now don’t get me wrong I’m not talking about the Constitution being broken as some leftist radicals like to say. No the Constitution works if followed and honored. Our Constitution has created the third longest lasting form of government in all of world history. So something has to work right. It also contains the amendment process…why…because our Founders knew they didn’t have everything right and they knew that society would change. So the amendment process allows the core of the Constitution to remain (you know the core that allows us to enjoy freedom and liberty) while we corrected anything that needed to be fine tuned. No it’s not the Constitution that is broken, but the system of merry-go-round government that ignores the voices of the people and blatantly violates the Constitution hand over fist.
Now the American people over the past three to four years have taken a step in the right direction. We got off the couches and started to do something. We became more active and informed than ever before. We saw groups like the TEA Party and the 9/12 groups take an active role in what was going on in the political game that for so long went un-supervised it seemed in America. These groups were quickly attacked and isolated. They demonized them by associating them with republicans and conservatives. The politicians that felt the heat and saw their cushy jobs threatened and their news media cronies very successfully drove a wedge between these movements and America. Now the average American democrat even though they might agree with some of what these groups are saying will not associate with them because they are branded crazy republican fanatics. Other average American conservatives have become too afraid to take a stand with these groups because they fear the possible backlash and violence that is brewing in America towards these groups. Yes violence that we will talk about extensively in this series of opinion pieces.
The foundation of America has been called a great many things. Some say the Foundation of America is the Constitution, but personally I feel beyond a shadow of a doubt that the foundation of America is the American people themselves. “We The People” control our destinies though freedom and liberty. So if things go wrong it is the people to blame. Let’s not sit by and take the blame…let’s take a stand. America is suffering from a serious wound, one that requires stitches not a band aid. So far we have done our best, but we have only applied that band aid. It is more important now more than ever to put aside our differences and stand united as Americans for what is coming.
What is coming? Civil unrest and attacks on the nation itself. Progressive left organizations are targeting Wall Street, the TEA Party, and the federal government itself to begin this fall. It isn’t isolated to progressive left radicals either groups ranging from communists to anarchists have joined in the attack. Even the Congressional Black Caucus is calling for civil unrest. To risk being called a fear monger what to come is best described as a dangerous storm on the horizon. An attack at the very fabric of America’s foundation itself. It is clear that the progressives plan to make the first strike, but their attempts will be for nothing if the average Americans can put aside our petty differences and unite against this “divide and conquer” agenda. Arm ourselves with the truth and with facts. Be prepared to not stay silent no matter how loud the opposition gets. We must push forward.
By playing their game and taking them head on is not the answer. Violence is not the answer it will only lead to their victory. I truly believe that is what they want. Civil unrest leads to violence which leads to chaos and the breakdown of society itself. At that point the government would have no choice but to cave to their demands and that means socialism and more government control of our lives. However if we use our Constitutional right to free speech and show that united front we will expose their lies and tactics. It is inevitable. Once the truth about them is revealed they lose their influence thus losing their power. We must be prepared so this week I will take one event at a time and break it down to expose the enemy for what it really is. Tomorrow we will take a look at the attack on our economic system and capitalism with a look at Stephen Lerner’s U.S. Day of Rage.
