Taking Turns

It would appear that the politicians both democrats and republicans are taking and have been taking turns stabbing the middle-class in the back. Both political parties are filled to over-flowing with big-government politicians, Whigs and Socialists. On one hand we have the democrats(Socialists)taking this Republic down the path to socialism, on the other we have the republicans(Whigs)taking us down the same path. If they get their way this republic will be inhabited by the same classes as Venezuela, the poor and the wealthy. The middle class will be eliminated here just the same as there. Of the two the democrats seem to be in the biggest hurry, the republicans seem to be a bit more patient.

There is another thing about the democrats, they are willing to risk losing elections on the way to Socialism. The democrats knew full-well that Obamacare would at some point implode, fail if you will. Still they did not care and moved ahead full-speed. They also knew that by passing Obamacare they would lose elections, the voters would take out their anger at the polls. Losing elections did not bother them. They lost control of the House shortly after passing Obamacare, retaining the Senate and the Presidency. Later they lost control of the Senate but retained the Presidency. For democrats losing was winning.

Now the republicans control the House, the Senate and the Presidency. Six months in and Obamacare is still with us. The republicans can not get rid of Obamacare, nor do they really want to. The democrats are coming to the rescue, they seek a bi-partisan effort to fix Obamacare. They knew it would fail. They sought no republican input is “crafting” that piece of legislation, yet they are willing to help the republicans to “fix” Obamacare. The thing about republicans is that they are not willing to lose elections on their march towards Socialism.

There is no way that we can ever go back to the way it was, or the way it is supposed to be. Big government politicians will see to that. Healthcare is just another thing under federal government control, one of many. Government has control and will never give that up. Power and control.

What will the republicans run on next year? Can or will they run on their record? Will they say they just needed more time? Maybe they will say the time to repeal Obamacare was lost, it has been with us to long? Will they say that too much time was lost investigating “Russian collusion”? The republicans have total control at this time, they could repeal Obamacare. If only they had the Nerve, had a Brain and had a Heart. They would never do that they might lose the next election.

What will the democrats run on next year? Will they run on saving Obamacare?

The democrats stabbed us in the back by passing Obamacare.

The republicans stabbed us in the back by failing once again to full-fill campaign promises. Which goes to prove that a politician will say anything to get elected or re-elected.

The democrats will in all likelihood use their time-tested tactics, the republicans will aid them(wittingly or unwittingly). The republicans will fail to repeal Obamacare. Obamacare will fail(implode), after all it was designed to do just that. The democrats will say that they were voted out before they could perfect Obamacare, what they had accomplished was only a first step. A first step that did not go far enough. The republicans had years to fix Obamacare, they could have helped us fix the flaws. The republicans knew the flaws, they repeated/regurgitated them often enough. The republicans refused to help fix it and now it has failed. The republicans did nothing, it failed and its failure is their fault. Now it is too late to fix it, we must take the next step. The next logical step in the minds of big government politicians is single payer health care. They will find a way to blame Obamacare on the republicans. They will even blame single payer on the republicans, had the republicans acted in time we would not be at this point. Even though single payer was their goal all along. The republicans in Congress will face and feel the wrath of the voters, the republicans will find themselves in the political wilderness.

There is another thing about socialism, there is only one political party. The republicans fear that the democrats will be in control when the change occurs. The republicans who stand up against the democrats of today will have no political future tomorrow. The republicans who side with the democrats today may have a political future tomorrow.

Well just imagine that

The latest republican plan to repeal or repeal/replace Obamacare has failed, at least that is the breaking news. The true story should read; Everything is proceeding according to plan, we never really had any intention of repealing or repealing/replacing Obamacare anyway.

For over 7 long years the republicans have been running for election/re-election on repealing Obamacare. First they said give us the House and we will repeal Obamacare. They got the House and we got nothing. Next they said give us the Senate and we will repeal Obamacare. They got the Senate and again we got nothing. Next they said give us the White House and we will repeal Obamacare. They got the White House and yet again we get nothing.

Well, I just wonder what will be the excuse they will offer for not getting it done now. The republicans control the House, the Senate and the White House. Is there anything else they need? Besides a spine. I would have said that they need to grow a pair, but there are some female politicians. So a spine covers that best, seeing as both sexes have one. Although the lack of a spine can be beneficial to politicians, especially to politicians, a spine makes it hard to slither around, especially if one tries to slither under a door.

Since Obamacare became Law the republicans have been complaining about how it was bad for Americans and thus bad for America. Since the republicans can not/will not repeal Obamacare reveals much about the republicans. It reveals much about the politicians(D,R and I)priorities. Their priorities are:
1. Themselves. Getting re-elected.
2. Their political party. Keeping their party in control or putting their party in control.
3. Themselves. Increasing their personal wealth.
4. Their big money donors, the lobbyists, the special interest groups.

You will notice that the list of priorities does not list Americans or America. That is because in my opinion, Congress does not give a flip about America and therefore can not/will not give a flip about average Americans. Let’s face it average Americans ain’t a special interest group.

The big government Whigs are back, and back with a vengeance. They have aligned themselves so closely with the democrats it is next to impossible to tell the difference.

Obamacare, since it became law has had zero effect, on me personally. I have group health insurance offered through my employer. I had group health insurance before Obamacare came along, my premiums were low then and are now and my co-pays remain the same now as then. Most people I know also fall into this category.

So now you must be asking yourselves why I rant about Obamacare so much and so often. Well my friends, you will notice that I said most people I know fall into the same category as me. I did not say that everybody I know falls into the same category as me. There are many that have had to return to work after retirement simply because they could not afford to by a private health insurance policy, the premiums and co-pays are just to high. It is good to see familiar faces, but it would have been under better circumstances if they returned because they wanted to rather than coming back because they had to. There are still others that are seriously considering giving up their own business(closing their doors)and going to work for larger companies because of the price of obtaining health insurance. Still others have already closed up shop. That is a crying shame, driven out of business not by shoddy workmanship, but driven out by government and health insurance.

Perhaps these are two intended consequences of Obamacare.
First. Keeping or actually forcing people to stay in the work force longer and longer, past the time they wanted to retire. Those that have group health insurance leave the group if they leave the job, forcing them to buy health insurance. Making health insurance so expensive people simply can not leave the work force because they can not afford the premiums and co-pays.
Second. Eliminating competition. The small business man/woman can not afford to comply with the law. He/she closes shop and goes to work for a bigger company or corporation. The politicians are in the pockets of big banking, big business and the unions. Using laws to eliminate competition.

Obamacare never was about making healthcare affordable, it was about forcing people to buy insurance. Insurance they neither wanted or needed. Insurance they can not afford. If the insurance was affordable there would be no need to subsidize health insurance for some. As for the cost of health insurance, the politicians do not care what it costs the average American. Let’s face it the government does not care what anything costs, what ever the cost it is the American tax-payers who pay. As for subsidizing health insurance for some, this is how that works. One pays his/her premiums for the policy, the government then takes taxes out of his/paycheck(income taxes)and then uses that tax money to pay a portion of another persons health insurance policy. Paying twice.

There is another reason why I despise Obamacare so much. Government intrusion and interference. Some how the government thinks that its place and has the right to tell a person they must by healthcare insurance or pay some sot of penalty. Not only that they must buy the insurance policy but what it must cover. As stated above Obamacare has had no direct effect on me there is another reason I speak out against Obamacare. Obamacare has had a direct negative effect on some near and dear to me.

The republicans will most likely fail to do anything about Obamacare. They at some point will act of desperation to pass something good or bad. The other option is that they will seek help from their mirror image, the democrats to come up with a plan. No matter which way this goes the government has gotten its big fat nose in an area they had no business meddling in. They have gotten control of another part of American lives and they will not give that back. Obamacare or something like it will be with us for a good long time, until the next scheme comes along. Obamacare was a welfare scheme, two schemes in one. An entitlement program for some and corporate welfare for the insurance companies. This republic is on the path towards single payer insurance, government insurance. That will be a truly sad day for this Republic and its citizens.

Everything is as planned and moving right along on schedule. There is nothing and no reason to delay the August recess now.

This government intrusion and many like it only go to prove that men Like Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson were right in 1786 and 1787. It also proves the South was right in 1861.

God Bless Dixie. DEO VINDICE

And then what?

Is a Civil War possible here in America? I would have to say, Yes. So with that in mind, I looked into 3 Wars in the past a War of Aggression and Conquest, a Revolution and a Civil War. I did this looking for similarities and how the circumstances of each could come into play in modern America and in fact the World.

A Civil War is defined as; a war between opposing groups of citizens of the same country.

By the definition above there is no way possible that the War of Aggression and Conquest 1861-1865 could have or should have ever been called the American Civil War. It was not the citizens of the North fighting amongst themselves, and it certainly was not the citizens of the South fighting amongst themselves.

There was another definition; a war waged to overthrow the government of ones own country. Even by this definition the War of Aggression and Conquest could not be called a Civil War. There were two distinct countries involved. The United States of America and the Confederate States of America, the Union and the Confederacy. The Confederacy nor the citizens of the Confederacy did not wage a war with the Union to overthrow the government of the United States of America. The citizens of the Confederacy certainly did not wage war against the Confederate States of America in an attempt to overthrow the government of the Confederacy.

There was even another definition; a war waged between geographic regions within the same country. While this definition comes close, it still does not fit the bill. True enough North and South are two geographic regions and they could be regions in and of the same country. The only way the War of Aggression and Conquest meets this definition is that the Confederate States of America was in the South, and the United States of America was in the North. America from the time of the Articles of Confederation until now has always been two countries in one, in more ways than one.

There was yet another definition; a war waged between political factions. A war based on politics now this really comes close, nearly a “perfect match”, close but no “cigar”. I encourage you to dive deep into this area on your own. There is much hiding in the shadows in American politics, then and now. Politics and politicians started the rift and placed the kindling.

It was not the Confederacy that started the war, the Confederacy was forced to fight. Forced to fight for its survival. But just what was the Confederacy fighting for? You can answer this for yourselves. But you must look at the reasons and the timing of the Southern States seceding. First was South Carolina then 6 more for a total of 7. Later 4 more seceded for a total of 11. Then look at what would be the benefit(s) of remaining in the Union. You may be surprised at what you find.

The Russian Revolution 1917. This was a two stage Revolution. First Removing the Czar in February(forced abdication and subsequent arrest). Second the “Reds” coming to power in October. Atrocities and Retributions abounded during and after the fighting.

The Spanish Civil War 1936-1939. This was a Civil War based on politics and political factions, citizens fighting citizens within the same country, overthrowing a government. At the conclusion General Franco became dictator(1939-1975). Atrocities and Retributions abounded during and after the fighting.

So let’s get back to the question, is a Civil War possible in America? My answer was and is Yes. If or when it happens it will not be a repeat of 1861-1865, it instead will be a combination of the Russian Revolution(1917)and the Spanish Civil War(1936-1939). The ground work has been laid, the kindling is in place, put there by the activists just waiting for a spark.

America is a nation divided, always has been always will be. This is best proven by some of the founding documents, most notably the Constitution. The Constitution established a government based on compromise. The Framers made compromises to get a document that enough states would support. Each state got a little through negotiation but no one got everything they wanted. Negotiation was the key, though now it has been made apparent that not all of the delegates negotiated in good faith. The big government types left themselves a little “wiggle room” in the Constitution but said there was nothing to fear.

America is at this point more divided than ever, and unfortunately it appears that compromising and negotiating will not and can not heal or even lessen the divide. Some groups want what they want and will resort to violence or threats of violence to get it. It is difficult, no impossible, to negotiate with a person or a group who is unwilling to make a compromise. Strangely enough most of the divisions in this Republic today are based on politics and demagoguery instead of geographical/cultural differences.

Think on this for just a moment. How many in America are calling President Trump an illegitimate president. There has been a lot of time and energy devoted/wasted trying to tie the election of President Trump to Russian influence in our elections. There are even some democrats seeking to find ways to remove President Trump from office, whether by impeachment or invoking the 25th Amendment. They want him out of office voluntarily(abdicate)or forced(impeached or the 25th). They would probably rather that he just abdicate, not as messy. I suspect that some republicans fit into this as well.

How many in America are promoting, supporting and encouraging violence as an end to political differences? The most prevalent in this area are the entertainers. There is another aspect to consider when examining the Spanish Civil War. The Fifth Column, the enemy within. Four columns assaulting from outside and the fifth on the inside aiding the four. Think about this, we can all agree that the Media is against President Trump, that could be one column. The anti-fascist element, that could be another column. The illegal aliens could be another column. Those who fall into the heated and inflammatory rhetoric could be yet another column. But who or what would make up the Fifth Column, the enemy within, the enemy among us?

So what would happen if Civil War was visited upon this Republic, citizens taking up arms against their fellow citizens? Will/would it just happen or would/will it be forced to happen? First let me say this; There will only be fighters and victims. The surest way to become a victim is not to pick a side, there will be no fence-setters. The federal government will step in and depending on who heads the government depends on how heavy the hand is. Martial Law will most certainly be declared as Local Law-Enforcement will quickly be overwhelmed. The Writ of Habeas Corpus will most certainly be suspended. The Military will be placed between a rock and a hard place, they will be forced to either take up arms against their fellow citizens or take up arms against their brothers. The same goes for Law-Enforcement. The entire country will be put between a rock and a hard place.

People should spend some time thinking about the aftermath of a Civil War. There will be no way back, not for this Republic, it will cease to exist. The land will still exist but the dream will be extinguished. Atrocities and Retributions will abound during and after the fighting, especially after. They always do.

There is another thing to consider. If there is a Civil War there will be a vacuum, a vacuum that must and will be filled. What will fill the vacuum? Look at the Civil Wars in Syria and Ukraine.

There is another thing to consider. The Civil Wars in Syria and Ukraine have had little effect on the global economy. What effect would be felt by the global economy if America were to fall into a Civil War? Something tells me that the U.S. is not going to have a Civil War for purely financial reasons. The reason is that it is not time to sink the global economy, not yet anyway. Even the smartest animal trainer knows that the animal they have trained so well and for so long can turn on them at a moments notice. Just because the time is not right for them it may happen(ready or not)anyway.

Just in case the handlers may have “hedged” their bets. Remember back to the “Fast and Furious” gun running episode. Did all of the guns find their way to Mexico? Would it be possible that some of them did but the majority of them are still in America? A possible cache for a possible Fifth Column. You would want your side to come out on top.

A Civil War would usher out the last President and Usher in the first Dictator. Who will/would be which?

So let me ask those who think violence is the way to solve/settle political differences this; Are those that inspire you to action insulated from what they cause? You can bet that they are. Most if not all of those who inspire your acts of violence are nothing more than “attention whores”, they say what they say just to get attention. Learn to think or yourself. You at present are acting out on their behalf.

Be careful what you ask for and understand the consequences, intended and unintended.

Just tell us the truth, for once

And again the Republicans have failed. But, then they never had any intention of coming through and never will. Campaign promises(lies)left unfulfilled, but then they have been making promises since the days of Reagan to secure the southern border. Actually, I am not at all shocked that the Republicans in Congress failed the voters(time and again)who sent them to office. Failing is their only success. At least they are not a total loss, they would be a total loss if they did absolutely nothing.

By all appearances the Republicans have “mystical powers”. They can talk out of both sides of their mouths at the same time, and the audiences hear different things. One could say that one audience hears what the politicians say and the other audience hears what the politicians mean.

You had nearly 7 years to come up with a “fix” for Obamacare, and that almost 7 years appears to have been fruitless. You had no plan, you made no plan, no I take that back you had a plan. Your plan all along was to “bitch and moan” then do exactly nothing about Obamacare. The House took two half-hearted stabs at it, nothing. Now the Senate has taken their stab at it and again nothing.

You seem to have time to do everything but your job. You had time to practice for a baseball game. You even found time to play the game. Quick question for you. Had the republicans been busy taking care of business at work instead of out “goofing off” on our dime would the fellow from Illinois been able to do what he did? You claim that the baseball game is a long-standing tradition and that may be so but it is not important. There is another long-standing tradition for Congress and that is to legislate actually getting things accomplished, and that is important. You put “play” before or instead of work. We out here in work-a-day America play after the work is done.

You seem to have an abundance of time to go on recess and take one vacation after another. You seem to have time to go on the “news” programs and give interviews. You seem to have time to “probe” and hold hearings. You seem to find Russians everywhere, while finding them nowhere.

Speaking of vacations and recesses, you have a vacation coming up real soon. When you come back from your vacation it will be the middle of July. Then you will have about 2 weeks before your August recess. How much can you get accomplished in just 2 weeks? I mean after all you had nearly 7 years to come up with a plan to repeal Obamacare and apparently that was not enough time. So in 2 weeks you plan to come up with a “fix” for Obamacare. Do not forget we are still waiting on a tax “fix” and a border wall among other things. Speaking of the border issue, how much time do you really need? I guess over 30 years was not enough. Seems to me some one said something like; Do this now and never have to do it again.

You people are truly overworked. Oh, by-the-way September comes after August, that means budget time. You have the same amount of days available to work as do most Americans that still have jobs. I put in over 40 hours a week and still manage to have time to goof off. How many hours do you manage to put in every week actually working? My guess is next to none.

So tell us the truth. Are you ever going to secure the southern border? Are you even planning on “fixing” Obamacare? Are you even planning on addressing the tax issue? My guess is NO to each question.

Maybe I am being to hard on you. After all why should you do anything right now, you have plenty of time. Next year you could do it all. After all if you did these things now the voters might forget. If you manage to get it all done next year it would still be fresh in the voters minds. Would it not? This is not an election year, next year is. No, this is not your plan.

Do nothing this year and next year and the voters will remember. President Trump does not face re-election until 2020, while the House as well as 1/3 of the Senate face re-election in 2018. Is that your plan to do nothing and risk losing control of the House and the Senate in 2018? If that were to happen the years 2019 and 2020 would be lost, absolutely nothing meaningful would get done. That would place the re-election of President Trump in jeopardy. My guess is this is your plan.

Which is it you despise the most President Trump, the American people or America?

Imagine This

A War is being waged, not just any War but a Civil War, bot just any Civil War but a Political Civil War. A Civil War between political factions, within the same country. A country that is divided along political lines. Two opposing “armies” readying for battle. Two countries within a single country, like parasites, so I shall call them parasites. Each trying to remake(reconstruct)the host nation in the image of the parasite. For simplicity I will call one parasite RNC and the other parasite DNC. Each parasite has its own president or dictator. Each parasite has its own mascot. The mascot for the parasite RNC is an elephant(pachyderm). The mascot for the parasite DNC is a donkey(jack ass). Each parasite has a notional color. RNC is Red. DNC is Blue. Each parasite has a National Flag which also serves as its Battle Flag. RNC has a Red Flag. DNC has a Blue Flag. For simplicity for the Remainder of this post, unless special circumstances arise, I will refer to them as Red Forces and Blue Forces.

For many years the Red and Blue Forces have been locked in a struggle, political struggle, for total and absolute control for the Republic known as the United States of America. In years past the Red and Blue Forces took to the field in July preceding the November elections. That was then this is now. These days the political “season” never ends. The elected members of Congress spend more time campaigning and fund-raising than they do in governing this Republic. They simply have found it easier and more beneficial for and to them to Govern less and Rule more. The map of this republic during the election season represents the political parties. It does not represent the Freedoms and Liberties that the Continental Army fought so hard for. The political battles of the past and those of the present have caused this Republic to become a nation of “Untied” States. Sadly, this Republic is no longer United in Cause or Vision. The common bonds that held this Republic together are becoming strained, and in some cases non-existent. Much like a rubber band stretched to the point of breaking, at some point it will snap if the tension remains high.

History does repeat itself and each time it does it becomes increasingly expensive. Take a look back in history and see the root cause of almost all “Civil Wars”. You will find Politics and political factions have caused almost all civil wars. The rest was caused by Despotic Tyrannical Governments.

Now, back to the Political Civil War. Picture this in your mind. The Red and Blue Forces are preparing to meet each other again.
The president/dictator(Chair) of RNC has placed the Red Forces on full alert. The Generals are putting on their uniforms and alerting all subordinate units. Big Business is activated. The Special Interest Groups are activated. Donors are contacted as funding for the battle will be needed.
The president/dictator(Chair)of DNC has placed the Blue Forces on full alert. The Generals are putting on their uniforms and alerting all subordinate units. The main stream media outlets are activated. The colleges and universities are activated. They may have a hard time activating the ones who are in their safe-spaces. Special Interest groups are activated. Rioters disguised as protesters are activated. Donors are contacted as funding for the battle will be needed.

Now you are really going to work hard to even visualize this part, a true stretch of the imagination. Picture this.
General Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House, standing there in his uniform. Rallying the Red Forces in the House. He is the one chosen to lead them into battle.
General Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader, standing there in his uniform. Rallying the Red Forces in the Senate. He is the one chosen to lead them into battle.
General Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader, standing there in her uniform. Rallying the Blue Forces in the House. She is the one chosen to lead them into battle.
General Chuck Schumer, Senate Minority Leader, standing there in his uniform. Rallying the Blue Forces in the Senate. He is the one chosen to lead them into battle.
(Almost fell out of my chair typing that part, what with laughing so hard.)
Each of their Lieutenants doing their part to rally all of the subordinate and supporting units.

That is damned hard to imagine ain’t it? Would you really follow those clowns anywhere or for any reason. Look at the members of Congress. Would you really be foolish enough to let them lead you anywhere? Hell, I would not even follow them down a hallway. I mean really, just look at them.(ROTFLMFAO)

This is the scene that plays out everyday in “The Swamp”(Washington D.C.). The Red Forces fighting for total and absolute control of everything in and about this Republic. The Blue Forces doing the same thing. Both the Red and Blue forces have the same goal in mind, they only argue about which path to take.

When all the seats in Congress are filled, there are a total of 535 combatants. They never suffer, the only time they become a casualty is when they either lose an election or get caught with their hand(s) in the “cookie jar”. By far the greatest number of casualties in this Political Civil War come from the citizens of the Republic, most often those in the middle-class. The political parties may from time to time suffer a minor setback, but they rebound. The Republic however, may not rebound from all the set backs caused by this continuing Political Civil War.

Each passing day proves my ancestors were correct.

Fake Right, Go Left and Run Out the Clock

The describes the entire “playbook” of the Establish Republicans, three plays that have worked time and again. During the primaries and election they fake a move to the right. After they get elected they go left. While holding office they run out the clock. And presto before you know it the cycle starts again.

Way back when the republicans, in the House and the Senate wanted to repeal Obamacare as it was such a disaster. They were the minority Party and a democrat was in the White House. Now they want to replace Obamacare. Now they are the Majority Party and a republican is in the White House. What happened to Repeal? Now the plan is to Repeal and Replace. Yea, like the republican plan won’t be a disaster. It is apparent that neither party believes that the citizens are capable of making their own decisions when it comes to healthcare or much of anything else. Neither party, democrat or republican, represents one thing about this Republic. They instead represent themselves, their party, their donors and the special interest groups.

The first time the establishment republicans in the House tried, half-heartedly, at their repeal and replace they were unsure they would have enough votes to go forward, so it was pulled from the table. Now the House has narrowly passed a bill on the way to the Senate. A bill in the House that some or most whether they voted for or against never even bothered to read. That kind of sounds like the same thing the Democrats did when they passed Obamacare, remember “You have to pass it to find out what is in it”. Most of them never bothered to read it they just voted to pass it, no democrat opposition and no republican support. This time no democrat support and only a few republicans in opposition. It would seem that some republicans now think that Obamacare is the best thing since sliced bread. It is all about the political party machine and nothing about this Republic. Power and Control. Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

The Senate republican leadership said that the House bill is dead on arrival. The republican leadership in the Senate will most likely will have the “best minds” available working on the Senate’s solution to Obamacare. The Senate will of course take their time to “get it right”. Apparently the Senate had no confidence in the House bill. It is entirely possible that the House did get it all wrong. They had to get something going, even if it was as bad or worse than Obamacare. Acting a little desperate. They would just use the excuse, this was just the beginning, we can always “tweak it” later. The democrats often say, “we did not go far enough”. The republicans often say, “this was just the first step, “we can tweak it later”. Actually both are saying the same thing, just using different words. Both mean that there is more they can do or should do.

The House, all 435 seats and 1/3 of the Senate are up for re-election next November. If something positive doesn’t happen and soon the voters will remember that they were shafted again. But maybe this is the plan. Do nothing as always. Maybe the republicans are willing to lose the House or The Senate, perhaps both, just to keep things as they are. No matter what the politicians remain in power. The Majority Leader will simply become the Minority Leader. If the House and/or the Senate falls into the hands of the democrats, or if the republicans keep the House and/or the Senate, Obamacare will be with us until something worse comes along. Single payer healthcare is just over the horizon. But then that was the plan all along. It will surely arrive, just as soon as one party finally goes far enough, or when the other party finishes tweaking. The only delay is that the parties haven’t yet decided who wants the credit if it works or the blame if it does not work.

What is needed and has been needed for far too long is a serious third-party, not some fringe party. I had thought the TEA Party was the answer. It was one heck of a “grass-roots” effort, I admire what they stood for and for what they tried to accomplish. It was too bad the Politicians hi-jacked the movement, it could have really been something.

We have had enough politicians.

There has got to be a reason

I mean really, there has got to be a reason. There must be a reason why the Liberal Socialists keep “shooting” at us down here, you know in Dixie. The War Between the States ended some 152 years ago. Yet today, there are still volleys being fired at Dixie, our Culture and our Heritage. The latest volley fired at our Culture and Heritage came from within Louisiana itself. The sad part is that Louisiana is not the only State firing volleys at itself, Georgia and South Carolina have also willing participated in the Destruction of Our Culture and Heritage. I would imagine that this is an occurrence all across Dixie. Even here in Florida it is happening. At least in this county the Flags went back up, political reasons(pressure).

What happened here in Marion County is a major problem all across Dixie. It was the politicians who had them taken down and it was the politicians who had them put back up. Who knows what the politicians will do next? They did not stand their ground and were pressured to take down the Confederate States of America Flag. Then they were pressured to put It back up. Politicians are like a weak tree they go which ever was the wind blows, not just the limbs but down to the roots.

The major problem with politics in the Southern States is that the political and economic interests of the South are ignored. One of the biggest reasons is that the politicians at the federal level are more concerned with the interests of their political party than the interests of the People or States they are sent to represent. It is no better at the State and only slightly better at the County level. My belief is that the politicians allegedly representing the South and the Southern people are at worst “carpet baggers” and at best “scalawags”. As said in the last post, I consider a Skunk better company than a politician.

Let’s leave politics(though it is the root of the problem, always has been and always will be)and discuss what is really happening down here in Dixie.

What is happening here in Dixie is nothing less than Cultural Genocide, the attempted total elimination of a culture. The destruction Southern Culture and in the process destroy our Heritage. There are only two groups engaged in the Cultural Genocide of the South.
The first group is composed of those who do not care about any Culture or any Heritage. They seek to keep this Republic in a never-ending process of Destruction and Reconstruction. These people are on a mission and there is nothing I or anyone else can say that will cause them to stop. Therefore there is really no need to address them, they can not be reasoned with.
The second group is those who do not know. You do not know for lack of education, you are well-educated. You were taught well, but you were not taught the truth. I will give you the benefit of the doubt. These are the people I address, you can be reasoned with. You must teach yourself, it does take time. When you are exposed to the truth you may just come away with a different view of the South, the Southern People our Culture and our Heritage. You may find the reason, the real reason, we from the South love our Culture and Heritage so much. You may even be opposed to the Cultural Genocide occurring in Dixie today. You may join us in protecting what is dear, you may even become an Honorary Southerner. Dixie is a real catchy tune.

In case you, in the second group, can not be reasoned with and/or simply refuse to learn and accept the truth, this is for you. The Southern Culture is about much more than Flags, Statues and Monuments, those are only inanimate objects erected in honor of memories and our heroes from the past. Seeing them does cause a certain amount of passion in me, patriotic passion. They are a part of our Heritage, a Heritage we do not want to see torn down. You may one day complete your works of destruction of our Flags, Statues and Monuments. You will however never complete your works of destruction on our Culture, if that were to ever happen it would truly be a terrible day for this Republic. You make get some lily livered politicians to side with you, you may even cause some Southerners who have been brow beaten for so long they too will side with you. But you will still be left with those of in who will never deny their Southern Culture or Heritage. For that to happen we will have to be destroyed. In our ranks there are those who refuse to be Reconstructed and those who are becoming Unreconstructed. To accomplish that task you will need help. During the Revolutionary War the King of Britain needed help as he was unable to subdue the Colonials with his might, he had to seek help to complete his works of destruction(see the Declaration of Independence). You may have been taught how that turned out.

Are you confused by now? In case you did not know I am a veteran of the U.S. Army, served over 20 years. Actually you should not be confused at all. If you look back through the history of this Republic and it’s Military, you will find that with the exception of The War Between the States, Southerners made up the majority of the volunteers in the military. No other region of this Republic has contributed so much in the way of manpower for our fighting forces. Consequently no other people has paid a higher price in fighting for this country. Military service is also a part of our Culture as well as our Heritage. We answer the call.

I need to make a side trip here for just a minute concerning our military and the Warrior Culture. If you do not believe that Cultural Genocide is possible you should check out an article I found the other day. Found it in my reader, a re-blog by none other than Gunny G, which sent me to Free Republic with a link to US Defense Watch. The article can be found at US Defense Watch titled: How Desert Storm Destroyed the US Military. Read it you will find out that Cultural Genocide is entirely possible, the Warrior Culture. If you desire further reading check out sentinelblog, a post from Frontpage Mag entitled; The Bay of Pigs 56 Years Later. Read it to the end, it might open your eyes concerning Southern Culture.

Now back to Southern Culture. A lot of Southern Culture is just plain good manners. Holding a door for a Lady. Standing for Lady so she can sit, offering a seat. Respect for our elders, saying Yes Sir or Yes Ma’am. Not to brag on myself, and I am sure that other Southerners do the same on a daily basis. I have gotten out of line to let Ladies go ahead of me at the check out counter. Just the other day I was almost to the register, my few items were already on the belt. There was an elderly gentleman and his wife behind me, I promptly removed my items and told the gentleman that he and his wife could go ahead. He of course refused, I insisted. His wife then declined so I honored her wishes and placed my few items back on the belt. All just plain good manners.

There is another thing about Southerners, we are a tolerant people. Well to a point. Even when we are forced into intolerance we are nice about it. We say things like; “Well Bless your heart”, even when something more harsh would be needed. Well that is what our Southern Ladies might say. Sometimes the men will say what needs said or do what needs doing.

There is another thing about us down here when it comes to meddlesome people and the like. We just say “Just Leave Us Be”. We also do not believe that Might makes Right. We believe that Right is Right and Wrong is Wrong.

Come on down and meet some real Southerners, you might just take a liking to us. There is one more thing we are a respectful people, we give it freely and we expect it in return. Don’t make us say, I wish “Those People” would just go back where they came from.

April is Confederate History Month, in case you did not know. Come celebrate with us, we just sit around have a good time and go “visiting” not bothering a soul. Going “Visiting” tomorrow, had to work the 26th.

DEO VINDICE
God Bless Dixie and Her People

Oh, one last thing. Please do stop shooting at us. You might just want to keep Us and our Culture around a good while longer, you might just need our men to answer the call once again. I hear war drums in the distance. Some of y’all don’t got a good record of answering the call.
