Remember Churchill

RedState warns that the actual reformation of America will not occur by magic after 11/2.

Regardless of the outcome on November 2nd, the fight for America’s future is only beginning. The Left has had 100 years to denigrate America into believing that statism is the ideal, the collective is superior to the individual, and that a league of nations is better than the sovereignty of one. Today, our nation is controlled by collectivists and while they may be beaten back on November 2nd, the fight will not end here. Nor will it end in 2012, if Americans are serious about saving America from the enemy within.

There were 15 years passed between the Tea Party and the ratification of the Constitution.

Wilson initiated Progressivism in the early 1900's.

So it's entirely likely that many of us will not live to see the defeat of that monster. Thus, Churchill:

I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: Victory. Victory at all costs — Victory in spite of all terror — Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

It's for the children. And, unlike the pander-liar (D) statists, we actually MEAN "for the children."

You get mad everytime you (and teaparty goers) get accused of inciting violent revolution against the U.S. government.

But you bring it upon yourself when you cite things like Churchhill's reference to, "blood, toil, tears and sweat...". The first time these words were spoken was on the cusp of violent revolution. Churchhill uttered these words in defiance of looming Nazi invasion. In 1940, there was no question what those words meant. And rightfully so.

But when you cite quotes like this and then tell folks that the Teaparty "movement" (or certain elements of the "movement") are not advocating violence against the government, this becomes very difficult to believe.

If I didn't hold the opinion that the Teaparty "movement" is a paper tiger, I would probably take this kind of stuff more seriously. That being said, I don't think you can post stuff like this and then tell the world that you don't somewhat support violent revolution against the government. Just saying......

That's the ticket.

Since I'm a pro-lifer, it's a given, eh?

And more Churchill....

Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves, that ... for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour.

Welcome to the next 100 year war.

The mid-term 2010 election is just the beginning.

Sorry but this whole random foreshadowing stuff is just too weird for me.

Exactly, J Strupp!!!

FAIL, Dad29. It just goes to show how inept you are when it comes to history. Without Progressive reforms by TR, Taft, and Wilson, our country would be owned by corporate interests running roughshod over the Constitution.

Secret ballot? Check

Direct election of Senators? Check

Truth in advertising for products? Check

Meat inspection by the feds? Check

And on, and on, and on...

Dad29 said...

Direct electionof Senators was a horrific error, contributing substantially to the MegaFed we have now.

I can live with Fed meat inspections (FDA).

Truth in advertising? You need your mom to measure a cereal box?

Dad29, you do realize that corporations had routinely BOUGHT Senator seats by controlling state legislatures prior to the 16th Amendment.

So much for being a defender of democracy!

You do realize that food companies regularly made false, misleading statements regarding the potency and cures of their products in the late 1800's/early 1900's, leading to the deaths of countless Americans, prior to those consumer
protections being enacted.

So much for being a defender of human life!

Just awful. Imagine that! BIG MONEY buying Gummint.

Can you say "GE"?

Yah. That helped, eh?

And Big Pharma is still buying Gummint. 18 dead girls (one/month) from the Big Pharma "vaccine" against cervical cancer in just the last year.

3300 dead babies every year from Planned Parenthood's purchase of the (D) and (R-Country Club) Parties.

Tsk Tsk Tsk.

17th Amendment, Anon. The 16th was a completely different horrible mistake.

17th Amendment, correct. See, Dad29, how easy it is to admit an error.

17th Amendment = Horrible mistake? Fiddle faddle, in my opinion. Here's an interesting take on the matter.

As history has borne out, "self-proclaimed small-government conservatives often find they rather like lots of government power, as soon as they actually get into positions of power."

16th Amendment? I will admit there are troubling aspects with that one.

Volokh has a respectable opinion.

And he can be wrong.

Clearly, the Fed has arrogated power to itself which may have been less easily taken were there objections from State interests--particularly those powers which pass the costs to the States, but not the revenue-taking abilities.

Thus the perversion of "populism." Real populism embraces the theory of subsidiarity. We now have 'top-down' populism, a contradiction in terms.

And by the way, pointing to flawed men is not a legitimate argument against a good system. Otherwise, e.g., the Teamsters' Union would have to be disbanded, right?
