The announcement of Santorum only confirms what we all knew, that no matter who got the GOP nomination there would be a big-government liberal in the White House after the 2012 election. The announcement only sets the field. Santorum would have been no different, in my estimation, none of them would.
I know I have been through this before, but there is no, none, zero chance that any government stooge will ever do anything to keep the U.S. from economic collapse. They couldn't if they wanted to. No president would be able to get congress to propose and pass a law that would drastically reduce the deficit. Look at Wisconsin to see what the nation would look like, look at Greece, look at OWS unleashed, it would erupt, they all know that. American spring.
Liberty cannot be secured under the current system. It cannot. As the nation drifts closer to chaos consider the moves the government could make, the moves they will have to make when they suddenly come to the realization (as I had to at one point in my business life) that the bills on the desk cannot be paid. They will be the first to know that those checks will not be in the mail and they will act.
Where do you fit in that scenario?
The Tea Party is the biggest wasted effort of the American people to date. It is as if George Washington assembled his army, consolidated his ranks, prepared to fire and blew kisses at the Brits. The Tea Party represented the angst and frustration of many more people than ever joined, people genuinely aggrieved, properly angered and motivated and then, what? They became a minor player when they should have commanded the stage, brushed off accusations of racism with a roll of the eyes and steam rolled on. Their hesitance, their propriety resulted in the blowing of kisses, the weakness in the knees at all the wrong times.
I stood on history's doorstep in Denver, watched as the moment passed for the Tea Party to become what it had to become to change the course of American history. I was disgusted. In that brief moment there came a time to act, to engage, to provide the outrage that would have inspired the courage of those left at home, behind their monitors, on their couch and was admonished severely for my efforts.
"This is not how it is done," I was told. No, this is exactly how it is done. Expose the left for what they are, get them to commit the Boston Massacre all over again.
I know the response from the Tea Party, it rings in my ears even without having yet been said. It is predictable, they are predictable when they need to be unpredictable. They needed to be the wild card to make this election about something instead of nothing. They needed to be the leaders they have claimed as a title. They needed to do what the PatComs are doing. Take nothing off the table in the first negotiation.
It was actually a moment when peace was possible that I saw drift past. Without courage, Mr. Chamberlain, the war is lost.
I welcome those of the Tea Party who feel as I do. You need to change tactics as I have. You need to see the way to victory is not through capitulation. There is a time for peace and a time for war, but without the willingness to wage war, one cannot achieve peace.
At all times I am an advocate for peace, a hold out for the last possibility of it, but the troops are in OWS, in ACORN, in SEIU, in Soro's private provocateurs, they are marching on the last vestiges of our culture and our nation. They have maimed the intimate soul of America with the constant encouragement of the Executive Branch. We are being attacked on every front, we have suffered casualties, real and as analogy. They mean to drive us to the ground and put their boot on our collective necks. Drop the white flag and fight!
