Heating up?

06 Feb

It appears (at least on the surface) that things are indeed heating up between the two fringes.  The far left, who has come ‘out of the closet’, and the far right, who want to kill everyone in Government.  Actually, the one wants to turn us into a Communist system, replete with mass murder and labor camps, while the other wants to just kill.  In large part to give themselves some sense (having largely failed in the receipt of societal recognition) of import, or perhaps just for the sake of killing.  One wants to protect and expand the centralize authority of Big Government, while the other would kill all Government officials, both bad and good.  There are no gray areas for either of these factions. 

And, apparently, no gray matter either.

Both are driven by huge levels of fear.  That’s right.   F E A R

Had our founders operated under such a motivator, they would never have signed that damned parchment.

Their greatest fears came from the concept of a Democracy being established, or of the establishment of a Party System.  Perhaps, the concentration of Political Power.  From time to time banking, and its corrupting nature. 

“In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” ~  Thomas Jefferson

But they never feared for their lives. 

“We must, indeed, all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.” ~ Benjamin Franklin -In the Continental Congress just before signing the Declaration of Independence, 1776.

Like so many do today.

“…and the wisdom to know the difference.”

    The danger here is that we could easily become what we despise the most. However the difference is we desire to hang on to something that is ingrained in the soul of man by our creator, Liberty. The will to live, to survive, is deeply embedded in mankind. Many of us have seen evidence of this in others, and probably even experienced it at some point in our own lives. When terrible injury or death suddenly appears imminent we react instinctively sometimes even forcefully against the threat.

    We are at that time in our lives now, and we must act forcefully but with careful and deliberate measure.

      Well stated. I’m not trying to take a cheap shot at the parties (well, maybe the pussies on the left 🙂 ) but both are sounding like fools. We don’t have to get down on their level, and we don’t need to advertise our cause, or threaten that which is real. There is just too much fearful chatter going on. When it really get’s down to the nut cuttin, I doubt that either side will be of any physical consequence.

    It is coming down to the wire, here is one from one of our Supreme Cort Justice Scalia, http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/scalia-internment-ruling-happen-22353561

    Keep your powder dry!

      Yep. And I’m sure that this is behind (at least) a portion of the heated rhetoric. While we should thank him for his candid comments, we should not spaz out by sending TPTwB an invitation to begin this move. Let them start their war. The Kenyan’s move today was a good start in that goal. If those people with terroristic ties don’t get it start, we know that his people will.

        I will definitely let them start this Soffitrat, I am in no way going to poke the proverbial bear with a stick. I will just wait till the bear gives me the moral and legal reason to shoot to kill.

        The one thing that separates an FNG(Vietnam acronym for Fucking New Guy) and a combat veteran is mainly patience. My first two to three months in Iraq was filled with a lot of anticipation when we left the wire. When we were mid tour at around seven months, we would leave the wire with more of a relaxed but very aware nature. When the “Surge” was in full effect, you really did not have anytime to really think. We just did our missions, slept, did our missions(rinse, lather, repeat).

        I only wish that everyone will come to their senses before the fuse is lit, but I have very little hope that it will happen. The polarization is too damn deep for either to swallow their damned pride.

    “Actually, the one wants to turn us into a Communist system, replete with mass murder and labor camps, while the other wants to just kill.”

    Third choice?

          As long as they have their widescreen tv’s, 300 channels, and all the junk food they could ever want, then no “the people” are to far gone to save. Why do we call our selves the III percent?

    Exactly. I didn’t say that most won’t have to learn all over again. But they will. Or die. Do you remember the feelings (and actions) of the people right after 911? That will always be the case, for better or worse, when we are challenged. It’s who, and how, that gets funneled into the response. To the owner of that, will go the victory. The .gov always has the ‘leg up’ on this due to the bully pulpit. That doesn’t mean that the III can’t win this. Especially when the masses begin to feel the pain and see the abuses that will surely come.

      “Especially when the masses begin to feel the pain and see the abuses that will surely come.”

      Anon you are right, many more are sitting on their asses in their own world but I do not believe they are oblivious to what is going on, they damn well know. Because of what ‘rat said above we are almost assuredly to see many more people sit up, take notice and make a stand. Probably reluctantly, but that is understandable and okay, considering they do not have the training, discipline and experience that many of us possess.

      I believe we should look around for these types, snatch them up, train & LEAD them. They will rise to the occasion. If we don’t the regime will grab ’em. Obviously I’m not talking about everyone, we all know there are people that are rabid supporters of the regime and are concerned only with what freebies are in it for them! They will be easily recognized by their words and deeds and they will be totally useless to us, frankly not even worth the cost of a round. Their masters will do that for us, that’s one of the reasons for the billions of rounds the regime has been stockpiling.

      Another reason for the billions of rounds are…they fear the armed American Citizen.

        The PTwB will chase many to the armies of freedom. No, nobody wants to fight. But they will. They are Americans and never cease to amaze. Those behind the lines (aka: progressives with Democrat voting histories) are the Trojan horses that will have to be identified and dealt with. That is a time consuming ordeal. Heartbreaking in many cases. Yet, to leave them un-dealt with will also result in death. So, they are worth the round. Does anyone really think that the new ammo will remain in the hands of the USPS? If it does, it means that the .gov will attempt to utilize the PO carriers as a means of gathering intel. Thus making them targets of opportunity. Most carriers will simply defect.

          I think you are right ‘rat. And I know of one USPS employee that will “defect”!
