I feel as though I need to write this now. Many of my fellow bloggers are posting like they might need to be talked off the ledge, so to speak.
If you accept what they write, it’s all but over, and we never even fired a shot.
Not that I’m the shooting type. Well, I was taught to use a .22, many years ago, by my Daddy (all good Redneck girls are instructed in the proper use of firearms by their Dads, don’cha know?). But, it’s been years since I practiced, and, since an unfortunate wrist injury in my dominant hand, I’ve not tried to get back to it.
But, other than that very mild “insurrection” in January of this year, the Left has been flaunting their “victory” without a worry or serious effort to stop them.
So, no, armed revolution is very unlikely, for now.
Well, then, what CAN we do to stop the UN-American Sons (and Daughters) of Wayward Mothers and Absent Fathers?
Fran says, and I think rightly, that Voting Won’t Do It. So, maybe we stop. Not completely, we still need to show up at the local and possibly the state level (depending on your state’s resistance to the Leftist Juggernaught). So, yeah, vote for the local candidates – work for and contribute to them, as well. That is the level you might call the incubator level, and it allows you to help guide them in the way you want them to represent you.
But, our motto in the future should be NOT ONE MORE RINO! Don’t vote for them, don’t contribute to their campaigns, and make their endorsement or personal recommendations radioactive.
Merely speaking out won’t do it. Can’t argue with Fran there, if by speaking out is meant standing up in public and risking assassination. But, there are other ways to speak:
- You can try listening to other people’s concerns, and asking clarifying questions.
- You can chair the meeting, and help keep them on topic – and, off any public speech that is likely to get them arrested.
- You can volunteer to write the meeting minutes – and THAT gives you a lot of control over the record, and the tone of the meeting.
- You can create a podcast or video series that allows you to voice your concerns. You can be public about it, or anonymous.
- You can write the script for others to voice. You can invite the guests, produce, or otherwise work in the background.
- You can be the Tech Guy that keeps the information flowing.
Fran discusses why the American Revolution worked, and why it wouldn’t today.
Point One was that the British were an ocean away. It’s true that the Overlords aren’t that far away in distance, but they are MORE than an ocean away in support. Outside of the major cities and their nearby Elite bedroom communities, the Leftists have little support. Even in the major cities, the enclaves that house the Elite and the government workers are surrounded by angry, hostile, anarchistic minorities and their allies.
I’m not too impressed by the military and weaponry capabilities of the Left. There are MANY ex-military vets, angry about having been driven out of their service arms, and many of who have actually experienced combat. As the Afghan insurgents showed, high-tech is not always the answer. It doesn’t hurt to have the capabilities, but rebel forces can manage without them.
Drones can be designed and built in the garages of small towns (and, provide a nice tax-free income for fly-over residents). It doesn’t take much to hijack the enemy drones, assuming that you are willing to violate FCC and FAA regs – which I assume is not an issue.
A relatively small group of people can bring down a complex society with a few attacks on chokepoints. Hell, look at the damage the shipping situation has done to the economy. It’s hurting us a little, but it’s KILLING China, who HAS to move their stuff through those ports.
