Careful Planning. . . politically

“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
THE REALITY OF AMERICAN SOCIETY right now is that the statists have infiltrated our governmental system. We can try and deny the truth, or scream that we refuse to believe that Senator McCarthy was on to something, but that won’t change the fact that we must prepare to do battle against communist socialist progressive statists right here inside our own country.

So far we have strategized, organized, communicated, and studied the tactics available to us. We say that we are ready for the fight, for we have seen the enemy, and we know that the opposition must be removed from our American System.

Action requires planning, and careful planning takes into account the strengths and weaknesses of the organization, unexpected factors, and the capabilities of the enemy. The terrain is marked with landmines and booby traps, which means in addition to the careful planning, we must also be able to adjust and improvise. Sometimes, we have no plan, because no amount of planning can predict some of the idiotic moves we see from the liberal left statists.

Planning to train, be orderly and logical, and fight the good fight with direction and purpose begins with the leadership.

Birds of a feather flock together, so as the fight grows, the numbers will increase naturally. The confrontations will primarily be with political figures, but the uniformed voters and socialist wealthy corporate types may also attempt to engage us in battle. The younger generation, fresh out of their indoctrination camps masked as institutions of learning will play a large part in trying to stop what we are doing.

There is no need to reinvent the wheel. Our path has been taken before, though in most cases a bloody revolution breaks out. Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it, but those who study history can take from it the best tactics and plans. Sometimes, however, we must remember that sometimes history, and what really happened, are two different things.

We must realize that we have the true power. More than three-quarters of the nation agree with us either totally, or partially. The silent majority screamed a little bit when the Tea Party movement emerged, but the liberal left statists have successfully stuffed them back into their harmless corners. And, as far as the statists are concerned, silence equals surrender.

In the planning of our revolution against statism, “making lots of noise” must play a part in our plans. We must seek out allies, and funding sources. We need to locate allies on the campuses, and in the hallways of political offices. We need advocates and activists who are willing to rebel against the statist establishment, and attack the power structure with words and protests.

Everyone has their own talent, and we need people to act in a manner consistent with their God-given gifts. Some people are great at making noise, some can knock on doors, and others can call people on the phone, or email lists as necessary. The troops must include old and young, male and female, family and friends. Sometimes the going will be rough and unpopular. We may have to cut certain people out of our lives who will hold us back. We live in an insecure, fast-changing world, and it is a scary thing to take up political arms, bring attention to oneself, and possibly become a target for the government to attack. We will be labeled radicals, extremists, bitter clingers, agitators, troublemakers, and seditionists. We will be accused of things we could never imagine we would be. We will be called evil, phobic, sexist, racist, and anarchists. We will be labeled as hating the poor, wanting to end government aid for folks that can’t fend for themselves, and sufferers of mental illness.

Breaking dependency on government is like trying to get a junkie to stop sticking needles in his arm. People are used to sucking on the government tit, and can’t imagine life without it. They are distracted by television, jobs, their children’s activities, and propaganda. The future is hopeless, they believe, so it is easier to ignore it. To do nothing.

“Government will do what it does, and there is nothing you can do to stop it,” I was once told.

I disagree.

There is no such thing as a no-win scenario.  There is always hope, and there is always a way.  Change, restoration, and resurrection of the republic is on the horizon. I can see us turning this around. We are not outnumbered, and it is not hopeless. All we need is hope, organization, and numbers. If not us, then who?

The general public has been told not to worry, they are numb, bewildered, or frightened. Fear is a great tool for the statists. When people are fearful, they lose the will to fight back.

It is time for the counter-revolution.  Thomas Jefferson believed we would have a bloody revolution about every twenty years. We have forgotten the original intent of the United States Constitution.  We have forgotten the list of grievances in the Declaration of Independence.  We have forgotten the purpose of the creation of the Second Amendment.  We have forgotten that this country was forged with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence. Our way of life requires that we are a virtuous society, and that we fight for liberty. We can’t turn this around, however, if we don’t actually do something.

Power is powerless without action.
