Sunday - A Day For Prayer

The coming War has been a long time in reaching the combustion point.

Today may be either another dash of fuel on the embers or another small dash of water, depending upon how things go in that Great Insane Asylum on the Potomac.

I don't have the talent to express my emotions on the subject and likely would receive a visit by dark suited men wearing sunglasses if I were.

But a Rubicon has been reached in America and perhaps will be crossed today.

Mike V lays it out much better than I, along with others who have been quoted in his post. It's a little lengthy but you need to read it. Follow the links therein.

Then spend some time in fervent communication with your Creator, God, or just with yourself to fully understand and make decisions based on your understanding of where you will stand in the coming days.

So a vote for ObamaCare is also a vote against the vitality of American capitalism. Business elites have mostly held their tongues, or calculated that they can later dump their health-care liabilities on the government. Yet ObamaCare will lead to much higher levels of taxation across society. The tax wedge—the share of labor costs that never reaches workers but instead goes straight to government—will start flying towards the 50% that prevails today in most of Europe. In America, without the same welfare state obligations, it hovers near 30%.

A self-governing democracy can of course decide that it wants to become this kind of super-welfare state. But if the year-long debate over ObamaCare has proven anything, it is that Americans want no such thing. There is no polling majority or any bipartisan support, much less a rough national consensus, for this expansion of government power.

This is no small thing, to restore a republic after it has fallen into corruption. I have studied history for years and I cannot recall it ever happening. It may be that our task is impossible. Yet, if we do not try then how will we know it can't be done? And if we do not try, it most certainly won't be done. The Founders' Republic, and the larger war for western civilization, will be lost.

But I tell you this: We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. Indeed, we will make with our defiance such a sound as ALL history from that day forward will be forced to note, even if they despise us in the writing of it.

And when we are gone, the scattered, free survivors hiding in the ruins of our once-great republic will sing of our deeds in forbidden songs, tending the flickering flame of individual liberty until it bursts forth again, as it must, generations later. We will live forever, like the Spartans at Thermopylae, in sacred memory.

I think I'm gonna jump the gun on April 15th and go buy some precious metal over at Wally-World.
