Out of control

Perhaps when American citizens start dropping dead from Ebola, or perishing in a renewed wave of terrorist attacks, the government will get serious about securing our borders: “A leaked intelligence analysis from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveals the exact numbers of illegal immigrants entering and attempting to enter the U.S. from more than 75 different countries.”

I don’t believe there’s any room left for intelligent doubt concerning the president’s psychological alienation from the very concept of America, and his belief that the world would be a better place if our country were an amorphous and heterogeneous stew of competing cultures, unassimilable because, in his ideal polity, there would be no central body of normative beliefs for people to assimilate – save for the primacy of the state, of course, and the necessary elimination of such outmoded ideas as individual liberty and personal responsibility.

Yes, Obama is an unmitigated disaster, but the effectiveness of the body politic’s “immune system” has been declining for generations, so Obama or someone like him was inevitable. More’s the pity that the opposition is led by mental midgets, self-dealing scoundrels and quaking poltroons. How this political dog’s breakfast is to be rectified short of another revolution is quite beyond me; if this lawless administration, and its fellow-travelers in the GOP, gets what it wants with respect to amnesty, I’m not sure that a revolution at the ballot box is even going to be possible for much longer. Even without the prospect of hordes of new Democratic voters, our future is looking grim, as a secular cloud of unknowing has descended on millions of our fellow citizens, enveloping them in the grossest ignorance of the tangible value of freedom and the soul-destroying consequences of its absence, leaving them prey to the blandishments and bribery of the ruling class’s shrewdest confidence men, unwitting hitchhikers on the road to serfdom.

I've been rooting for an steroid to hit 'reset' because that's the least ugly option.

What I figure is the most likely is reality doing it.
We just cannot go more than a $trillion deeper in debt every year for much longer and we're one of the best off in the world.
The world probably owes each other more money than there is in the world.
That cannot be good and it will be ugly when our gov't has the choice of doing its primary job of protecting us or paying the welfare state.
What happens when our debt payments exceed the tax revenues?

The worst is that Obama gets his wish and we have revolution/civil war/popular uprising against the overarching nannarchy.
One thing about that, he might regret firing all the combat tested veterans.

What obviously cannot happen is that we fix it.
Our politicians cannot even 'cut' the rate of increase in our budget, much less actually cut (reduce) the budget.

We are boned and nobody in power will admit it.
I keep thinking of the last days of the Byzantine empire where their leaders were too busy fighting each other to pay attention to the barbarians outside the walls.
And we don't have any walls.

What we must continue to seek is peaceful means of redress, but prepare to defend ourselves.

The Jarrett Junto, and their allied forces, would like nothing better than for us to 'fire the first shot', as it were, and then launch a Revolution.

What we seek is a Restoration of our Rights as Americans, not the tearing down of Society.

As Samuel Adams always urged: Keep our Enemy always in the wrong.

Let them be the ones to attack first, but be prepared when it comes.

I don't have any answers, but I feel deep down that something really bad is coming.

Will we continue down this road to progressive hell, or start to get back on course?

I think a good indicator will be the results of the 2016 presidential election. Four years of Hillary Warren may be the end.

Young people know their rights, are taught their responsibilities are towards 'the environment' and 'minorities'.

Obama is both the epitome and the king of that.

It's like France before the Revolution.

This is not tempramental or accidental. I fear you may find out why the DHS purchased all that ammunition.
