What Worries Me
A friend of mine sent me a link the other day to Lew Rockwell's site, titled Is Obama really preparing for civil war. The article was pulled, but god bless google for caching everything, right?
Anyway, the night before I had been listening to George Noory on Coast to Coast Am, which used to be The Art Bell Show. Before you start throwing brickbats, let me tell you that George et al cover topics no one else does and even with the tin foil crowd, it's the most interesting radio out there and you will learn more than listening to Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck or Sean Hannity, but I digress here.
George had a guest on, G. Edward Griffin, who is a very knowledgeable writer and speaker. I highly recommend listing to the podcast and to check out his website. My friend's email along with the previous show got me thinking and worried. I responded to my friend thusly:
I will tell you this: If anything, he is waiting for a rebellion. There is a difference. Rebellions are conflict that are against something without an end game in sight, often without centralized leadership. In our history, rebellions are put down time after time. We need to be wary of that, as it is a loser out of the box. Even if a rebellion won, then what? In the case of our own revolution, our founders had a very good idea of what they wanted to do, how they wanted to do it, and were willing to discuss it. With rebellion, anarchy follows and some despot that is meet the new boss same as the old boss takes power.
My opinion, if Obama is wary and preparing for anything, it is possible secession. It’s my opinion that he wants to destroy the dollar (money control ed. listen to G. Edward Griffin.) and create a scenario that makes the NAU (North American Union) possible. He will also try to foment a global currency. Without our own currency, we will have given up sovereignty. Even the brits have kept the pound. What will happen is an economic adjustment that will push our worth down. That will make people very unhappy. The pilot to this is healthcare. Obama et al are doing this inspite of public opinion. They know they have a short amount of time and once done, it’s almost impossible to undo. Basically, they are purposely driving us over the cliff.
The only solution is states rights. Gary who posts at LR is wrong. Redoing the districts for 100K people will do nothing much. The leadership of the states have to step in and say enough and be willing to back it up. Every state has it’s own military. Just like in the 1770’s, it was 13 states that agreed to split. While I am not officially endorsing revolution or secession, I will say with out some sort of united front from states invoking their 10th amendment rights, Obama wins.
That is the short and long of it. Obama et al are in fabian progressive socialist mode. Which is to say, approaching socialism progressively and deliberately. Yes, they know damn well their programs won't be repealed by future versions of congress, even if the GOP and other parties strike back next november. There's no precedence for it. My esteemed colleague Chuck Coffer offers the solution of term limits. Good start, but it is down the road and honestly, many pols don't see it in their best interests to do so anyway. We need to make it so.
I have posited previously here that states are the key. States have standing in this fight and carry more weight than even a group of individuals, even very large ones. States also have better standing before SCOTUS. While I do not like courts making law, it is fully appropriate for them to knock down laws as unconstitutional and send it back to the legislative branch for fixing. This brings me back to my statement, what worries me.
What worries me is a populace that would react with rebellion, but also not react at all and capitulate. Both of those are extremes that do not solve any problems. If we come to an impasse of major proportions, then it should be through the states that we act, with full authority of our 10th amendment rights, through non-violent means. This means Tea Party, this means 912ers, this means getting involved with a political party that opposes Obama and his fabian socialists, this means yelling from the rooftops that socialism is coming or unfortunately it is here. It also means getting rid of the scum left in congress and the senate by voting them out next November. If all that fails, then come back to me and we'll talk some more, but it won't be about anarchy non-sense or stupid ass rebellions.
Thank you for reading this blog.
