The Fallen Republic: A Summing-Up

     I found this at IOTW Report. I hope that site’s proprietors won’t mind that I’m reproducing it here. It deserves the widest possible audience:

     I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here.

     But today I woke up and I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same.

     I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life so filled with hate that they will agree with opinions that if they were in their right minds they would never express as their own.

  • If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.
  • Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
  • Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.
  • It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.
  • Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.
  • People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.
  • Inflammatory rhetoric is outrageous, but harassing people in restaurants is virtuous.
  • People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.
  • Immigrants with tuberculosis, Covid and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.
  • Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.
  • $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.
  • If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
  • People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.
  • We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.
  • Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
  • Criminals are catch-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.
  • And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”?!

     Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China.

     We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right, where darkness is light and light is now darkness.

     Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water and sinking fast.

     The choice is yours to make. What will it be?

     Time is short, make your choice wisely!

     The choice is being taken from us by the Usurpers: through uncontrolled borders, rampant election fraud, insane borrowing and spending, the strangling of our energy supplies, and the across-the-board displacement of facts in favor of regime-dictated propaganda echoed by their Big Tech allies and “narratives” to which media handmaidens eagerly assent.

     Time isn’t “short;” it has run out. Either we rise now or we fall forever.

     Remember that you read it here first.

    Well said and well written, pretty much spells it all out. We can get the country we grew up in and love back, but it will take spine. Much more than is apparent today in all walks of life. We are fast approaching the point where in our Declaration, there is that clause that states:

    That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying it’s Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

    This is what it’s going to take and it will not be through flowery speeches and referring to your opposition as “esteemed colleagues” in our entirely corrupt congress. This present govt is completely corrupt in any sense imaginable. All its agencies and branches are corrupt, infiltrated by treasonous traitors with the enrichment of themselves as the only objective. We already have an extremely good Constitution and blueprint for a successful society, so we will not be recreating it from scratch. It’s barely used. Not that anyone alive today has the IQ or intelligence to write a new blueprint for a successful society. All that have attempted (I’ve read a few of them) are nothing more than a watered down attempt at socialism and ultimate failure.

    Heinlein’s future history novels used to refer to this time period as “the crazy years.”

    “We can get the country we grew up in and love back, but it will take spine”


    it’s going to require a lot more than that. the entire apparatus of the government is arrayed against us. with very few exceptions they do not believe in the same fundamental principles the country was founded on, as we do.

    Two things are apparent, at present.

    First, the current state of things did not happen overnight. These things have consumed decades in the assembling, and throughout this process there were always means by which they could have been diverted or arrested, were those objectives to be sought.

    This list of options, of measures to correct that which was in error, began as a lengthy one, filled with actions that had a low price tag and a short lead-time. These were at the top of the list, the easy-to-implement, low-cost choices that would have punched way above their weight if implemented in a timely fashion.

    The bottom half of the list contained measures that were darker, costlier, more difficult and less convenient to execute, those options that would require great sacrifice and great personal risk to have any chance of success.

    The top half of the list was time-limited; there was only ever going to be a narrow window of opportunity. The bottom half carried those things that are eternal, ever-present, proven through the ages to be effective but oh, what they cost.

    We have now exhausted the top half, through ignorance, inactivity, or normalcy bias. The bottom half are the options before us, and they are terrible to contemplate. Our choices will now be… difficult.

    The second thing is that it is most interesting how these increasingly onerous actions by government are affecting us in stages. First they required a carport for international travel, and I didn’t object because I had no intention of travelling anywhere. Then they came for the internal travel, and I didn’t do anything because I was content to remain in my province. Then… well, it’s beginning to sound a bit familiar, isn’t it?

    We are now facing the selfsame situation as those in Europe did, not so long ago. Will there be gas chambers and executions this time, too? At this point, would you really be surprised if there were?

    As your president keeps reminding us, ‘nothing is off the table’.
