The Fix is In. Those of You Who Love Liberty - Brace Yourselves

I shall not openly admit that this is over. Though it appears that things look bad. The Enemies of the Constitution have apparently gained the opportunity to "remake" our 232-year-old Republic into something that our forefathers would not have recognized. "How?", you ask? Through a successful combination of
(1) 50 years of race-baiting,
(2) 40 years of class-warfare-baiting,
(3) a government complicit in a fraudulent election a la A.C.O.R.N., and
(4) a public, largely so media-obsessed that they presented no resistance to the smooth operation of the empty eggshell of a campaign run by a self-described Marxist, class partisan, and terrorist symptathizer.
No, I shall not openly retreat. As a former Marine, I prefer to "attack in a different direction" (Col. Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller, Korea, 1951). I also swore an oath to "defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic". Because I take that very seriously, and because I sincerely believe that Barack Hussein Obama and the rest of his socialist atheist democrat colleagues are a threat to our Constitutution, I will try and prepare you all for what an Obama Administration can and very well may do to (and despite) our beloved Constitution.
Incidentally, here's a much better and more comprehensive treatment of Obama's record on the Constitution than I could ever produce.
Chris of Rights blog (excellent reading, incidentally)

If the campaign and his past votes, statements, and actions are any indication, we can expect

  1. An administration that squelches free speech (especially free speech that is disagreeable to him - that's "hate speech", by the way, punishable by law).
  2. We should prepare, once again, to defend our right to bear arms - quite literally to the death, if necessary. May God forbid.
  3. We should prepare for a further erosion of our civil liberties and civil rights...unless, of course, we are one of the "Special Americans" identified as fertile ground for unquestioning Democrat votes - homosexuals, minorities, atheists, and communists.
  4. We should brace for a massive expansion of the central government and
  5. We should prepare to see a massive increase in the amount of money we must give them to spend on their pet causes that undermine our economic and physical security.

Those of us who continue to believe in the ideals upon which this country was founded must make a decision, now. What will we do to best serve our nation and our families? Wait for the mid-term elections and hope for a 1994-style Gingrichesque backlash? Go survivalist and await the nearly inevitable decline of our society when Reed, Pelosi, Frank, Schumer, and Obama can not resist the temptation to raise taxes? Secede?

I don't know what to do or what to advocate. But I do know this. I will continue to teach my son about the country as it should have been. He needs to know what was great about our Republic before we gave it away to the worst kind of American - one who wants to make us mediocre like everybody else. And I will remain ever-vigilant, hoping to see some sign of life - like the first tender green shoot to spring up in the wasteland following a volcanic eruption or something - the undeniable evidence that Freedom and Liberty are growing in a new land. Then I will go there and help, and teach my children to help. And we will try not to repeat the mistakes that have led to this tragic loss of Liberty. Maybe we'll get it right next time.
