(Written a few weeks before the Nov. 6th election)
I am hopefully anticipating that if Obama is somehow re-elected, his reign will be short-lived.
The train of executive abuses and excesses already perpetrated by this imperial president can no longer be tolerated.
Faced with the awful reality of an unbridled neo-Marxist at the helm, and at the insistence of millions of irate, fearful and demoralized citizens, I anticipate that Congress will be compelled to impeach and remove him from office. Of course, this assumes that the GOP and what remains of the 'blue dog" Democrats handily gain overwhelming control in both the Senate and House and that each seeks to restore constitutional order. If this overwhelming majority fails to materialize, then other forms of resistance will be inevitable.
But, let's say the Senate remains in Progressive hands. What then?
There is precious little doubt in my mind that many millions of patriots will eventually take to the streets and, eventually, massive marches on DC to curb federal overreach and profligacy will ensue. And if that too fails to rid us of the Obama and Progressive plague, then Americans should prepare for likely debilitating and widespread civil disobedience, and even patriot occupation of State Houses to push for nullification and secession.
Even a patriotic military takeover is not out of the question. And, of course, there is always the specter of a second American Revolution.
Frankly, to prevent the total collapse of the nation, I believe the people will insist upon impeachment and removal. We will be momentarily shaken by this unsettling development, but we will survive intact and, more importantly, we will be on the road to constitutional and economic recovery.
Clearly, this is a critical juncture in our nation's history, probably the most critical since Valley Forge. In the final analysis, we either restore constitutional order nationwide, or the union fractures, and rightly so. And given the deep and likely irreparable ideological divide which already exists in these "united States", perhaps a confederacy of socialist republics on one side and of constitutional republics on the other will be irresistible. Even without Obama and Progressive tyranny, isn't such a dissolution and reordering of our political system inevitable anyway? I think so, and I think history is on my side.
When our learned and perceptive founders delved into political history to guide them in fashioning an efficacious system of governance grounded in republicanism, they essentially agreed that a republic is successful only when the polity is manageable both in size and population. They well understood this republic was an "experiment". And while they hoped the experiment would succeed, they were not delusional.
They understood that a large and excessively diverse electorate would inevitably undermine republican principles and lead to authoritarianism and centralization, this in an effort to effectively govern; that, historically, the natural inclination of government was to expand its dominion. This, of course, would mean a unitary system of governance which would rely upon a one-size-fits-all formula, a formula which would prove to be inefficient, arbitrary and heavy-handed, and which would, inevitably, lead to tyranny, resistance and dissolution.
In any event, one way or the other patriots will get through it all--IF we remain rigidly united and determined to safeguard our unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
