I read a great piece in The Conservative Tree House, Steadfast Doesn’t Mean When it’s Easy. This has summarized the way I have been feeling recently, and tied it all in a neat little bow.
This election has shown me the level of corruption in The System™. There was a time that they needed to stay in the shadows, but this election fraud in the major cities was right out in the open.
I was listening to David Webb, and he said that we don’t need to rise up because we elect our representatives. Do we really? We didn’t so far this presidential election, and it’s clear to anybody who cares to pay attention that like Josef Stalin said, it doesn’t matter who votes, it matters who counts the votes.
And now we are seeing in our group of representatives some shining stars of courage amid a sea of corruption, cowardice and apathy. We were just royally screwed, and only a few want to step up.
So we are at a crossroads. After the Constitutional Convention, Ben Franklin was asked: “What sort of government do we have?”. He answered: “A republic, if you can keep it.”
Franklin and the other founders understood fallen human nature and the machinations that would need to be taken to keep it in check.
Contrary to what the media would like you to believe, we are not divided Republicans against Democrats, men against women, black against white, gay against straight. We are divided against the oligarchy of government and businesses against “we the people”.
President Trump represents ‘We The People‘ and as a consequence those within this corrupt system viewed his appearance with the same dismissive outlook they carry toward those who voted for him.Sundance
When we the people don’t believe we can make our voices heard through the ballot box, we will make it heard through the cartridge box.
