Everyday I read blogs and news stories. Everyday I am more and more astonished at what passes by either unnoticed or unaddressed. There are daily instances of rampant socialism, communism, Marxism being taught in the schools. The environmental movement is nothing more than classed up Marxism. It isn't so much that these things are out there and readily available, but that there seems to be an out and out antagonism toward our own system of government by our system of government. It moves and changes to accommodate whatever Marxist policy that is needed to further enslave the people. There is no resistance.
The problem is not only that there is no resistance, there is out and out advocacy for Marxist socialism without response. The blogs report it, point it out, write posts about it, but it goes no further.
It seems to me there has to be some identification of some targets here. It's easy to complain and write about it. It's easy to commiserate with others who feel the same way. These people are direct opponents to the Constitution, to your rights, to even the concept of a republic, where principles dictate laws rather than the majority opinion.
This issue arrived through another post. There is a question as to what being a patriot is all about, what being loyal is. I mean if being loyal to the United States is merely abiding by what the elected leaders tell us, then what do we need a Constitution for? All we would need would be a means of electing officials, then they could tell us what is legal every day. There would be no need of a Bill of Rights, or a Constitution at all. If there is no condition under which one might resist the power of government so long as elections take place, but there is no Constitution to tell us who a citizen is, who is capable of voting, or, as in the current situation there is no way to keep someone from voting without proof of citizenship, if there is no boundaries on citizenship, then the whole world might vote in our elections and choose for us to give them our taxes. Foreign aid would be our only expense.
Otherwise, there must be some limits on acceptance of authority. There must be some causes worth resistance. When I look out on the events of the past few years I realize that we are cattle and there is no stopping the train to the slaughterhouse. What feeble resistance I have been able to put up is dwarfed by the enormity of the machine which daily oppresses my brothers and sisters in liberty.
The fact is, if there is ever going to be any resistance to the steam-roller of Marxism there needs to be some targets established. We need to identify those working openly to destroy our Constitution. There needs to be a ranking of those targets. It seems to me if they can openly attack us, we should be able to openly attack them. If they can denigrate freedom and justice, should we not be able to denigrate their Marxist policies without apology?
We should be deciding how to attack these organizations within the law, ways to engage them in lawsuits, keep them buried in regulations. What regulations have been heaped upon the unions? We need to find ways to hang some weights on their efforts the way gun rights are constantly being defended.
Here's the thing: the prototypical American wants to be left in liberty to pursue happiness, nothing more. That desire for independence has led to isolation. That desire for liberty has led to an unwillingness to encumber the enemies of liberty. We are in a box, what we find important about America is being destroyed before our eyes and our principles prevent us from reacting in kind to those determined to bring it down. This has to change.
Our fight, instead of being individual pursuits to beat back the oppressors must become a coordinated effort to encumber them with regulations, with lawsuits, with restrictions. Take the fluorescent light bulb, we should be mounting attacks against the mercury used in its production, calling it the "poison" bulb, pointing out the irresponsibility of the average stupid American that will lead inevitably to these light bulbs being discarded in landfills to poison the water table.
We need to Alinsky them right back. Identify the enemy, isolate it and destroy it. Start with the easiest first, the poison bulb, just to get our feet wet.
