Porretto: Wishful Thinking Department - A Bloodless Revolution
Fran Porretto injects some reality into the throbbing anticipation re the 2010 election.
Beck calls the event more correctly, IMHO, but Fran is not delusional, either:
...There will be no bloodless revolution back toward individual freedom, objective justice, Constitutional constraint, and American sovereignty and dignity.
Deterrence, by free Americans against those who would subvert and destroy this country, has failed.
The Bad People have
- the initiative,
- both the checkbook and the printing press,
- the controls of the Combine,
- the mainstream media,
- academia, from pre-K through grad school and beyond via the professoriate,
- an array of unscrupulous allied organizations,
- a standing domestic army of Federal, state, and local law enforcement,
- possession of much of the nation's remaining economic activity via regulation and/or outright ownership,
- the armed forces,
- financial and other support from strategic enemies and other transnationals,
- a domestic surveillance capability to make the Stasi blush,
- the half-hearted collaboration of the Dead Elephants, and
- a shockingly-ignorant electorate.
More importantly, they also have both
- a plan to do more transformation of America, and
- the will to implement that plan, no matter what it takes.
The Good Guys have
- some bold words,
- two ladies in suburban Atlanta with stickers and a video camera, and
- a few hundred men and women in total across the country with the courage to stand peacefully, armed, in public, quixotically demanding the restoration of this country's authorized political structure.
Looking at that balance of forces, is it wrong to echo this commenter's question?
And, even more importantly, is it possible that the only blood that will be shed will be that of the FreeFor and potential witnesses for that cause?
That's more than a rhetorical question.
Let's look at the record thus far, focusing only on events in the Nineties:
William Colby? Still dead.
Vince Foster? Still dead.
Vicki Weaver? Still dead.
All of the Davidian members from Waco? Still dead.
On the other side of the table, is there anything other than promotions, increases in personal wealth and power, successful retirements, and the prospects of even more into the future?
Didn't think so.
When they think of the Patriot movement at all (which is likely seldom), "Waco Jim" Cavanaugh, Lon Horiuchi, Jamie Gorelick, Eric Holder, Louis Freeh, Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and the hundreds of other FedGov veterans of the past 20 years of struggle almost certainly just roll their eyes and chuckle about the "gun nuts".
Why isn't anyone rolling their eyes and chuckling about the Zetas?
Think hard on a quiet Sunday about that question and its necessary implications.
