What if the economy wasn’t the most important issue in our coming election after all?
What if the underlying motive for the deliberate destruction of our economy, was to convince Americans that we can no longer afford to shoulder the burden of defending Western civilization, from the global forces of tyranny?
I have been impressed with Trevor Loudon’s New Zeal Blog since Glenn Beck first mentioned it on the radio, back before he even got his gig with FOX News. Insiders knew that it was the source of much of the research, which Beck used to expose the ubiquity of the Marxist connections in Obama’s past and present, including the outing of Van Jones as an avowed communist.
Loudon’s plea here is the the most compelling argument I have seen yet, for perhaps once again abandoning one’s principles, and voting for the lessor of two evils. While I remain unconvinced that voting for Romney would accomplish a damn thing toward returning this country to Constitutional government, I have to admit that allowing the Obamunist to retain his perch, is tantamount to turning off the lights for good in the first American Republic.
It is all well and good to say that we need to crash and burn, so we can rebuild a second Republic from the ashes; but Loudon makes a very good argument that once we lose our power, the tyrannical forces that take over the world will never permit us to regain it. As a budding anarchist, even that wouldn’t bother me; but the pragmatist in me is constrained to acknowledge that we have become a nation primarily composed of authoritarian sheeple, who require an authority to follow. They would bow to a new global government in a heartbeat, if it promised to restore the bread and circuses.
There are no good options. If Romney is the answer, we are asking the wrong questions; but at this late date, any alternative (including Johnson, who polls less than 2% anywhere) would be naively pissing into the wind. Perhaps the best course would be to help elect Romney to stanch the bleeding, and immediately begin to work in earnest to create a viable third party for rational individualists, to extirpate the Incumbrepublocrat duopoly in ’14 and ’16. ◄Dave►
