I hate change. A lot of people do. We want life to sail along smoothly like a placid river, gently winding and curving on its way without any sudden changes or surprises. Adventure is fun to read about but the ancient Chinese knew what they were doing when they coined the old curse, “May you live in interesting times.” The idea, of course, is that times that are interesting to read about are hideous to have to live in. A lot of people are like that; we don’t want to live in interesting times, we want to live in boring times so we can enjoy life, go to church, get married, have kids, and retire in comfort.
Unfortunately, the senile sniffer in the White House who was foisted on us by the election-stealing apparatchiks in the so-called “Democrat” party has decided he’s going to ensure we live in interesting times. Naturally, the more interesting things become, the less we like them. King George had a similar attitude back in 1776.
So, what else do King George and Joe Biden have in common? Here’s a pop quiz:
If you answered yes to all five questions, go to the head of the class. Joe Biden and King George are like two peas in a pod. The only thing Biden hasn’t done is trigger a civil war. The Revolution of 1776 was a civil war until we won it, at which point it became the Revolutionary War. Other than that, Biden and King George are nearly identical twins and Biden is well on his way to pushing America into another civil war.
Here’s the thing though; civil wars – aren’t.
By that I mean, they aren’t civil. Indeed, history would argue that civil wars are among the bloodiest, cruelest, most inhumane wars people have ever fought. They are also, sadly, necessary from time to time in order to stave off tyranny, slavery, and death.
Writers and commentators by the score have been published far and wide on web sites across the internet, repeatedly demonstrating beyond any shadow of a doubt the criminality, duplicity, immorality, intolerance, dictatorial nature, and sheer evil of the Biden regime, the so-called “Democrat” party, the Deep State, the Mafia Media, Big Tech, the LGBTQ-whatever coterie of activists, Teacher’s Unions, BLM, Antifa, “fact checkers”, out-of-control judges, and the deep-pocket woke corporations who support and pay for it all.
Feel free to add to the list, I’m sure there’s more.
Not only have writers and commentators talked about and proven all the charges against the accused, readers have posted endless comments about these issues, often adding to them from their own personal and sometimes heart breaking experiences.
Furthermore, we know the Conservatives and Republicans who are supposedly on our side are fair weather friends, at best. How many times have we seen those we thought were rock-ribbed conservatives turn to jelly the moment they set foot in Washington? In 2014, I stood in the parking lot of a local church listening to John Ratcliffe during his campaign to represent District 4. I was standing directly beside him when a man asked him if he would promise to vote against John Boehner as Speaker of the House and Ratcliffe promised he would. Well, we elected him, sent him to Washington, and the first thing he did was break his promise, he turned on a dime to vote for Boehner instead of against him.
Pure quivering jelly.
Then, in 2020, I was at the County Republican Convention and Pat Fallon was campaigning for Ratcliffe’s old position. In person, Fallon seemed like a stand-up guy so we voted to recommend him to the voters and put him on the ballot. Now I wished I’d hogtied him and thrown him out so hard he bounced.
And yet . . . there are constant articles and videos from those on the political right claiming the upcoming midterm elections are going to be a watershed moment for Republicans and a wipe out for Democrats.
Even if it’s true, so what? Does anyone honestly believe the RINO’s we’re sending to Congress – ‘cause they ain’t no other kind no more – are actually going to stand up to all the Leftists in D.C.? The media, the special interests, Big Tech, etc.?
As John Wayne once said in Big Jake, “Not hardly.”
The Founders wrote the Declaration of Independence for several reasons, one of which was to justify their actions to the world. In the second paragraph of it they wrote, “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security,” and at the end of that paragraph they added, “To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.”
Then, they went on to list 27 reasons for their declaration. After that they devoted an entire paragraph to their “British brethren”, listing the ways they’d asked for help and warned them of the unlawful efforts being made against them, all to no avail. It was only in the last paragraph of the Declaration that they formally declared their independence.
The Declaration of Independence didn’t arise in a vacuum, there had been years of insults, injuries, and legal injustices leading up to that point. They didn’t revolt until their backs were against the wall and it was fight or be turned into slaves. They didn’t want to do any of it, they wanted to live in boring times but King George wouldn’t leave them alone. Sound familiar?
Does anyone doubt we have 27 accusations to list against the government?
How about 50?
Are you going to let your baby starve to death because the government would rather send baby formula to the border than to your local grocery store? My youngest grandson is only three months old. If my daughter runs out of formula, rest assured her husband and I will do anything, break any law, hurt anyone to get more for him. Anyone who says they wouldn’t do the same thing for their family is either lying or heartless.
How long will we allow the political prisoners from January 6th to languish in jail for exercising their God-given right to protest a stolen election? None of them imagined in their wildest nightmares what was waiting in store for them as a result of that day. What if it’s someone in your family next time? What if it’s you next time? The DOJ doesn’t seem to care about our God-given rights anymore. What will happen to the next batch of political prisoners? Will they be “suicided”?
How long will we suffer under arrogant, evil, racist rules handed down from on high by a senile usurper in the Oval Office, a brainless halfwit in the Brown House, Granny Boxwine in the House of Representatives, and sexual perverts and groomers on our school boards?
How long will we stand by as anarchist brown shirts run riot across our nation, burning, looting, and pillaging as they go? Kyle Rittenhouse stood up to them and he’s lucky he's not sitting in prison right now. Do you really think they’ll let the next one get away with it, especially if the RINO’s leave him twisting in the wind? Or will a mob be allowed to haul him out of jail and string him up from a street lamp before the trial even begins?
We’ve asked for help, we’ve written to Congress, marched, protested, explained, reasoned, tried everything under the sun to get the other side to put an end to the insanity, all to no avail.
How long will we wait, people?
When is enough enough?
