On all levels something is rotten in these united States. Sounds almost obvious and simple. Yes and no.
Those who study history know that while outer pressure, political and military machinations, etc are part of the chessboard, it's the internal 'struggles' (such a fave term among collectivists) that bring a country down. It is the enemy within.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague." Marcus Tullius Cicero
Not all of the story, as traitors pretty clearly are evident. They attempt to do as Cicero says, but analysis shows them as the two faced pretenders and liars they are. In fact, the current occupier of the Oval Office is pretty blatant.
These red diaper babies and elitists think they have it made. They believe we who hold to the Republic will eventually fall, especially soon as the guns are gone. Ain't gonna happen. We must keep lighting the dark corners of their collectivist plans.
I keep urging folks to study the enemy. A good place to start is with the Communist Manifesto and Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. Believe me, these mokes study us and our documents in order to subvert The Republic. Studying this stuff doesn't make you a collectivist, nor nuts (mutually exclusive -s-?). It is simply part of history. And again vis a vis Sun Tzu, study your enemy and yourself, as it were.
Note the predominate insulting and ridicule via Rule number 5. It goes on ad infinitum like some kind of hi-speed automated dung flinger. We stand for something and it's the job of subversionists to counter it.
The cure for this is to use their tactics against them. Bit by bit, we fight that enemy that never sleeps. We must continue to sleep less and reclaim the Republic.
Our difference is we are based in truth. Collectivists are ensconced in lies and half truths. They can and are countered and beaten. I believe we can win the final victory. But finality is only as good as vigilance.
They also appeal as we know to emotion, eschewing logic/reason. We should remember that reason is the key for victory. But we should balance head and heart, for just cold facts need personality to convince the truth.
The internal battle includes so many facets. Collectivism, like cancer attaches to healthy cells and indeed rots them from within.
Disarm us, flood the country with people who are heavily infiltrated with criminals and factionalize. No more E Pluribus Unum. We become a house divided. And oh yes, destroy the economy with socialized medicine and hindering American business.
It is a matter of Countering these things.
Nobody said it was easy. But how far have we come and where do we want to go?
When something goes rotten, we toss it. And we replace it with the freshness of Freedom/Liberty forever!
