Danger! There’s a Muddy Road Ahead

DANGER!  THERE’S A MUDDY ROAD AHEAD
by Robert Williams

There may be a few people around that would do nothing to “offend” an attacker even if that attacker were raping their own daughter right in front of their eyes.  I am not one of those people.  But neither am I in favor of unnecessarily offending folks who most Americans would think of as “decent”.  Therefor I make an effort here not to insult where insult is not deserved,  but I don’t hold back when it comes to raw fundamentals.  These raw fundamentals include my instant willingness to defend my family and friends and country even if I might ultimately have to include violence as a last resort.  That is why I joined the U.S. Army in the 1950‘s,  to defend what I sincerely hold dear and valuable about my homeland which is the United States of America.

So just what do I hold dear and and valuable? It is really rather simple and straightforward.  The founding fathers of our country made a sincere effort to overcome their seemingly insurmountable differences in order to forge a Constitution that would stand the test of time and seal in place the firm commitment to a balance between individual liberty and governance by temporary representatives elected by an adult citizenry where every legal citizen has an equal single vote.   Then what endangers this concept?  Foreign powers have tried to disrupt it in two world wars and Islamic Jihadists continue to hate America’s existence because we stand for the freedom they wish to deny everyone.  So far we have successfully resisted such blatant external threats.  The internal challenges are in some respects more difficult because they are more subtle and gradual over time.  It has become obvious to me that as a societies go,  the Europeans have gone completely into “ineptocracy” and are now suffering the dire consequences.  No, I didn’t invent the word.  Somebody else did, but I do think it more and more fits our own American society and therein lies the danger.

I recently ran across a definition of ineptocracy as “A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing,  and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed  are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.”  I would only add to this that America has become close enough to that definition so that I believe we are in serious danger of no longer having enough producers to balance or even begin to pay off a National Debt of unbelievable proportions that is increasing BY THE DAY.   And that is only one of our major problems.  The others being a decline in general public intelligence in spite of pouring billions of taxpayer money into schools,  enough foolish greed to go all around, and a rapid drift towards the type of socialist-communist insanity which collapsed Soviet Russia and got Europe into very deep do-do.

After observing what has transpired in our country over the past few years I have concluded that both our major political parties and the general public are culprits in this disaster.  I include myself because I was economically and politically asleep for most of my working life and only woke up to pay real attention after the shock of 9/11.  I am way past the age of vigorous physical activity,  but I can still YELL!  So I’m going to do a lot of yelling.  I believe we now need a wake-up resurgence of the kind of old-fashioned deep-down American patriotism, accountability, frugality, respect for real education,  and hard work,  that too many Americans now sneer at.  I don’t give a damn who sneers at me — I’ll do my own sneering for a change — and I’ll do it especially at those I feel are the most guilty — namely our political party hacks,  the millions of lawyers and lobbyists and bureaucrats supporting them, farms and corporations on welfare, and most of all the damned socialists and communists who have infiltrated our educational system for so long and duped our young people.  THEY HAVE TO BE SHOWN THE DOOR!!

The fundamental issue is the same as it was in 1775. VIGILANCE AGAINST TYRANNY. The King and government of England forced their American Colonists to violence as the last resort when all diplomacy had failed. The goal of the American people now should be the same non-violent initial diplomacy, but with an added advantage. In 1775 the American Colonials had no say in their governance.  Now we American citizens still have the vote, but our so-called “representatives” no longer reflect the interests of a truly free people because huge government agencies and their non-elected bureaucrats have eroded so many of our original liberties and taken on so much unconstitutional power that the whole idea of government of the people, by the people, and for the people has been distorted almost beyond recognition. “Obamacare” is just the latest and most heinous example.  2700 pages of government regulation of our bodies.  We don’t even own our own selves anymore — which means we can be completely controlled.  THINK ABOUT THAT!  But the most alarming thing of all,  is that a large proportion of Americans have been hoodwinked into thinking that Obamacare is a good thing!  You don’t believe me?  THEN READ THE 2700 PAGES!

Betrayal of  the system our founding fathers presented us began not too long after the 1930‘s when “Social Security” became popular.   It started as a voluntary “savings” program with certain government “guarantees” that you’d get your money back when you retired. One of these guarantees was that the funds would remain untouched by other government expenditures. Later this promise was violated by including collected Social Security funds in the “general fund” and then spending that money lavishly on other government social engineering projects. So much for government promises. There are many other examples — far too many. When the spendthrift politicians finally ran out of taxpayer money they borrowed from foreign countries including America-hating China. Now that debt has reached unfathomable trillions so huge that economists tell us every American baby born today starts out life owing foreigners about $50,000 and that sum is going up daily!

To top it all off, each U.S. government since the 1930‘s has squandered the citizens’ hard-earned money on ever more hair-brained projects that never reach their stated goals but always cost more and more money to pay more and more enforcement agents. The government itself is so corrupted by money and power mongering that it even affects our Supreme Court that sides more and more with the power-mongers. There is a hole in the dam of Liberty and it is widening BY THE DAY. If we are to prevent a total tyranny in the next decade we have to do more than stick a finger in the hole. WE’VE GOT TO JUMP IN WITH BOTH FEET ! That is the fundamental issue requiring immediate action. Jumping in with both feet in a disciplined and highly visible way as a unified force of true American Patriots who are uncompromising in one very important issue — UNCOMPROMISING DEDICATION TO PREVENTING THE TYRANNY OF BIG INVASIVE CENTRALIZED GOVERNMENT.

George Washington was uncompromising in the following related aspect. In his 1786 Farewell Address he warned against overly intrusive government as follows: “It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in their exercise of powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to use it which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositories, and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasions by others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern; some of them in our own country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them.”

General George Washington was advocating “reciprocal checks” of one department on another, but he did not seem to anticipate what is happening now, which is THE COLLUSION OF ALL GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS TO CONSOLIDATE POWER AGAINST THE PEOPLE AND IN FAVOR OF INTIMATELY RUNNING EVERYONE’S LIVES BY DECREE OF SOME “PANEL OF EXPERTS” WHO FANCY THEMSELVES SMARTER THAN THOSE WHOSE LIVES THEY PROPOSE TO CONTROL. That is what the 2nd. Continental Army is to guard against — with our lives if it ever comes to that. But it won’t come to violence by our own intent. As it was in our first violent revolution, there will only be a second violent revolution in America if the forces of government run so far amok as an attempt to destroy American liberties altogether, as Hitler and Stalin did to their people at the cost of millions of lives and eventual economic collapse.

THE DUTY OF ALL AMERICAN PATRIOTS IS TO WATCH FOR THE EARLY SIGNS OF TYRANNY AND ALERT THE PEOPLE. SUCH EARLY SIGNS ARE QUITE EVIDENT IN THE SERIES OF ADMINISTRATIONS AND CONGRESSES SINCE AND INCLUDING FDR’S GOVERNMENT OF THE 1930′s. THE TIME FOR ALERT IS NOW!! THE SIGNS HAVE MULTIPLIED AND WILL CONTINUE TO MULTIPLY AS LONG AS ABOUT HALF OF THE POPULATION IS HOODWINKED BY FREE MONEY CONCOCTED FROM NOTHING BUT MORE DEBT.  BUT THERE IS A LIMIT TO HOW MUCH LENDERS WILL CONTINUE TO LEND AS THE BORROWER SHOWS LESS AND LESS FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY.  AND THERE IS A LIMIT ON HOW FEW PRODUCERS CAN SUSTAIN HOW MANY FREE-LOADERS.  THIS IS VERY EVIDENT IN EUROPE RIGHT NOW!

FAIRNESS IS NOT ENFORCED EQUALITY.  FAIRNESS IS PROVIDING THE LIBERTY TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ONESELF IN A MANNER CHOSEN BY THE INDIVIDUAL — AND NOT BY THE GOVERNMENT.  FAIRNESS IS EARNING YOUR MONEY BY YOUR OWN LABOR,  NOT DEMANDING THAT SOMEONE ELSE SUPPORT YOU BY THEIR LABOR.  LEGITIMATE GOVERNMENT POWERS ARE CLEARLY LISTED IN THE CONSTITUTION AND WE THE PEOPLE MUST SEE TO IT THAT OUR GOVERNMENT DOES NOT EXCEED THOSE POWERS.   HOW? — GATHER AND SPEAK OUT ! — MARCH AND DEMAND!  — AND VOTE!
