Many accounts will praise the sacrifices and deeds of those who fought in the American wars. Some versions will emotionally express their thanks and respect, while others will list their heroic actions. There is another viewpoint that seldom gets the attention that it deserves. Simply put, what is the true reason that all this blood was shed and the meaning of continued torment that follows, when the guns are silenced? Some will say, we just need to revere those who served. Others may dare to ask, why and what for?
Once in a while a phrase embodies the critical circumstances of the times. Society is essentially stuck on stupid. The American social order is especially afflicted with the habitual disease of self-delusion. In their gut people feel that all is not well. But few know in their bones that the cause of the discontent is a lethal cancer. The illusion of progress even infects the body politick. The nature of or the methods used to practice the black ops of realpolitik is lost on the vast majority of empathic – socially acceptable – populace. The notion that to be a good citizen, one must internalize the popular culture and established order is a malignant death sentence. This vast melanoma of a deceptive virus is spread by defining the ‘PC’ limits and curtailing meaningful political debate. At its core is the art of perfecting stupidity as a national standard of conduct.
“True Believers” in the lunacy that has become American politics have lost all sense of reality. This dementia especially applies to supports of George W Bush. The most contemptible treachery in recent times comes from the utmost bait and switch scam that threatens the very survival of America. The Bush double-cross will invite Pancho Villa to pillage your community and grant him amnesty so he can count the loot. The Quisling President has proposed immigration-law changes to allow workers from Mexico to enter the United States if they have jobs waiting for them. Those magical job offers at a time when systemic unemployment is rampant, is like offering a bone to a rabid dog. The canine will eat it clean and then infect a horrible death upon the hand that feed him.
What kind of culture do you want? A secular society where the lowest level of debasement is the standard that all must accept? Well, the definition of secularism is a doctrine that rejects religion and religious considerations. There is no clearer example of what it means to adopt that vile cultural road than the confrontation over Alabama’s Supreme Court Chief Justice Judge Roy S. Moore, struggle for Liberty and faith in God. The monument now residing in the Judicial Building in Montgomery, if the federal magistrate has its way, is ready for banishment to Mt. Sinai! The Ten Commandments may be the most endangered species – so says U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson on August 5, 2003. He is the federal judge who initially ruled the monument to be unconstitutional, and now issued a bench order that required the monument be removed within fifteen days
Governments have a rule they like to enforce. Defining the standards for citizenship is fundamental to the organization of society. The State has emerged as the final arbitrator for disputes, especially conflicts between the ‘person’, and the government. But is any person a citizen? The wording within the U.S. Constitution on this topic is clear and indisputable.
As the exodus of well-rewarded jobs leave our shores or evaporate as downsizing efficiency marches onward, we are left with an inevitable conclusion. Life is getting harder, earning a livable income is more difficult and the prospects for the future are less upbeat. Covering all the reasons for this shift – away from a secure future – are continuous themes for pundits and reporters. The world is quite different from the fabulous fifties when a father could support a family without working overtime.
The Republican Party has long pursued a path contrary to its heritage. Under President George W Bush, that direction has cumulated in a repudiation of traditional conservative principles. Any honest conservative maintains a core roster of values and policies that reflect their passionate support for the Republic. Belief in limited central government, the rule of law, fiscal responsibility, a free enterprise economy and national defense are essential positions. Despite, lip service to these ideals, the Bush administration has systematically turned its back on those standards and has chartered a course that inevitably will preside over the death of our nation.

There is immense confusion about the nature of the State. There is, even more, bewilderment about what constitutes a patriot. Any discussion in the civic realm begins with a cultural viewpoint. An attitude toward the proper role of the individual’s relationship with government based upon one’s value system and interpretation of civil order is natural. One man’s patriot is another man’s traitor. Where do you stand on the sentiments behind the penning of the below ideas? Quiz yourself and see if you can figure out the name of the author.
All the buzz in the aftermath of the last election is that secession is in the air. Despite the improbable prospects that the globalists, that control the federal government, would allow the upstart masses to leave the dominion of Disunion States, it is promising that the country builds critical mass for dissolution. Secession in this day is not your call to arms in the defense of home. “Honest Abe’s” version of despotism caused many politicians to “Wave the bloody shirt”, but today’s crop of brave leaders just asks you to sign a petition to beg for a cordial severance. Just imagine the response from the unprincipled governmental career class. The re-education FEMA facilities are ready to become today’s “Camp Douglas” detention centers.
