More on Plan B

I don’t want to radically change the site. I just want us to be realistic and still optimistic. This morning I posted an exit poll that said Obama supporters… well, never mind what it said. I posted a poll and Jim said that he didn’t really want to hear anymore about how dumb Obama supporters are. I don’t either. It is depressing.

I want everyone to post the things they want to post. I have never limited the cob-loggers and I am not now. It is just that I am tired of Bronco Bama and Mitt Romney and all of the rest of whatever band of clowns are in charge of what branch of whatever. I really am.

I only ask that we try to make this site a place, not of despair and mourning, but of steady optimism. We are not subjects of the state and we are sure as hell not victims. We are individual entities, endowed by our Creator with immortal souls who live on the ground on which we were born. We were born free and no election changes that.

So go ahead and post what you want to post but try to remember that we are the heroes of our own life stories and that we will decide how to live our lives. There is nothing they are going to throw at us that we can’t overcome. We won’t be victims. We won’t be passive. We were not defeated. We are free.

That is Plan B. We will abide.

Men who are sincere in defending their freedom, will always feel concern at every circumstance which seems to make against them; it is the natural and honest consequence of all affectionate attachments, and the want of it is a vice. But the dejection lasts only for a moment; they soon rise out of it with additional vigor; the glow of hope, courage and fortitude, will, in a little time, supply the place of every inferior passion, and kindle the whole heart into heroism. ~Thomas Paine, The American Crisis: PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 12, 1777

    I’ve got to tell you, for the most part I haven’t cared to listen to talk shows on the radio or watch the news. It just drives a stake through my heart all the more. I don’t need to listen to people who get paid to tell me what I already know.

    As we are talking about Plan B and more on Plan B, I will bring a suggestion here from another publication thread.

    We need a permanent topic thread entitled “Prayer Requests”.

    I know that this spot on the net was never intended to be a religious site. As the years have gone by we have increasingly become more cognizant of the source of all our Strength and Liberties. Our Founding Fathers leaned not to their own understanding and made it known that an appeal to Almighty God was what our Nation required in order to be free. We all acknowledge that our most basic Rights come from our Creator. We are not pushing any sense of morality on anyone by humbling ourselves before our Creator by having a special section of this site dedicated to prayer requests.

    When we lean toward our own understanding, we cut ourselves short. President Reagan said that he turns his eyes toward Almighty God, from whom all his strength comes. Let us all be humble enough to provide a space here for those who are in need and are humble enough to know who will provide for those needs.

    I really think that in order for us to be most effective we must at least acknowledge the source of who we are and make a space that will provide a network for mutual support that will inform our family of who here has needs that God can meet.

    The candidate I voted against won. That does not make me or the others who voted against him wrong. It just makes us losers. I cannot predict what the future holds or when the pendulum will swing back my way but I will not piss and moan. I will determine what went south and work to make sure it does not happen again. Washington and his soldiers had a worse time. Did we really expect to prevail without experiencing some pain and disappointment? I my friends will not stay a loser for long.

    “I will determine what went south and work to make sure it does not happen again. Washington and his soldiers had a worse time. Did we really expect to prevail without experiencing some pain and disappointment? I my friends will not stay a loser for long.”

    I like that. The reference to the Army of the Revolution is right on.

    Perhaps we can make the plan backfire. I think the plan has been to cause our economy to fail and then for those on the left to rebuild America from the ashes into their dream regime.

    They have been building the foundation for the economic, moral, and intellectual collapse for decades. That has been successful in bringing our country to the point where a majority of voters have voted for free stuff rather than freedom.

    I suspect that the future will be difficult for many. Those who have put their faith in a benevolent government will learn that it is not their savior. It is incompetent and corrupt. Witness the results of hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. Local, state, and federal governments are shown to be not just unprepared but uncaring.

    We should be able to point this out – but not until it’s time. Today it’s Obamaphones. Before long it will be deaths from starvation, insurrection, lack of medical care, and violence.

    Only then will some of the big government lovers discover the error of their ways.

    What has history shown about countries experiencing extreme distress? It shows us that the people will often follow surprising leaders; not always the ones who caused the difficulty.

    US House Republican seats (2014)will be contested by Democrats, but it should remain in Republican hands. US Senate may have 28 seats up for grabs by Republicans…worthy of organizing for this important event.
    A possible “Plan B?”

    Both House and Senate (if RNC head, Priebus, is replaced) will be sucessful if RNC in Washington DC doesn’t gerrymander this opportunity. Once and for all We The People can steer our beloved USA in a “center-right” direction (away from current “center – far left” course the country is on).

    John Bohener was heard to say a “Tea Party Caucus” won’t be created (read:allowed) in US House!!! Question: Why NOT???HUH???

    Allowed the “Democratic Socialists of America” to have their own caucus (a far left, commie/socialist 82-member organization), why not a “Center-right Tea Party Caucus – TPC?????” HUH???

    Remember, “The God who gave us life gave us liberty…Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction…that these liberties are a gift of God?” Author: Thomas Jefferson.

    Back to basics. Our Founding Fathers gave us a path, why deviate from their sage advice??? Pray. Amen. Teavangelicals, Tea Partiers Unite!!!
    We The People cannot depend on RNC or GOP to quit their time worn mantra and political gerrymandering.

    Contemporary literature cites the 4 Estates or Columns of democracy. Originally there were 3 columns; The First being the clergy, the Second was the nobility and the Third estate commoners. In 1837 the press was named the Forth Estate. It is well documented that the press was an unbiased popular entity where their increasing power and influence became a prodigious factor as people became more enlightened and literate. The press provided a clear demarcation between opinion and factual matters..
    I believe that the fourth estate, one that adheres to the journalistic principals of integrity should remain as is.

    Now enter the Fifth Column or Fifth Estate. A new entity born of the likes of Milan Nedic, Joseph Goebbels, Emilio Mola, Lenin and Anton Quisling. All degenerate traitors working from within to impose their will and destroy the rule of law and their respective governments. Their premise, as it was then and as it is now is to subvert, to lie, distort, divide, pervert and destroy all of societies noble attributes, institutions, truths, ideals and religion. Enter now and add to the list obama and his gang. Parasitic takers.The democratic party and his legion of brain dead soulless conspirators and his complicit press. And to this list we must consider and notate the power and brains that control the diminutive despot now polluting the White House. To this ignoble list we include and cite: the Gestapo. Stazi and NKVD. We cannot add the FBI,CIA, BTAF&E, DHS or like institutions at this time. We can however add Eric Holder to the list as he only serves one master and not “We the People”.

    It is they of whom I speak and indict.
    It is they who have infested our centers of learning and politics at every level.
    It is they who seek the complete disenfranchisement of a people.
    It is they who foment class warfare.
    It is they who are the self-serving leaches sucking the life blood and intent and provisions guaranteed by our Constitution.
    It is they who trash our religious institutions and beliefs. It is they who removed God from their political platform. It is they who demonized and ridiculed the Tea Party.
    It is they who will subjugate the United States to a foreign entity.
    It is they who will disarm each and every law abiding citizen.
    It is they who wish to open our borders. It is they who apologize for our greatness.
    It is they who will open this land to the terror of islamic domination.
    It is they who will remove any incentive to excel and prosper.
    It is they who will make the wealthy poor and the poor poorer.
    It is they who decry the ownership of private property.
    It is they who will replace the capitalistic system with socialism and communism.
    It is they who will redistribute the wealth of this country. It is they who will make all completely dependent upon government.
    It is they who espouse the concept of cradle to grave control.
    It is they who will squander the wealth of this great nation.
    And it is they who try to diminish our military and make the ideals of patriotism, duty, and loyalty words of contempt.

    Who are they of which I speak?
    They are the Evil.
    The Fifth Estate,
    The Fifth Column.

    It has been said so eloquently in this forum that we must fight back the evil that infests and permeates this great land.
    We will.

    I am part of “We the People” and I will fight back.
    We are the Sixth Column. The Sixth Estate.

    Be warned that history is replete with the evidence that once the precipice of freedom has been breached there is no return. Just victims.

    xenical, that was sweet. 6th column…hmmm. And I was content with the New Pamphleteers :)

    Btw RD,
    “we are the heroes of our own life stories and that we will decide how to live our lives. There is nothing they are going to throw at us that we can’t overcome. We won’t be victims. We won’t be passive. We were not defeated. We are free.”

    In some form or another thats what I’m going to have to tell my daughters over thanksgiving. They’re pretty confused as to how everything their daddy told them about how this country works, why it works, and what it is based upon could be so ignored by so many people. Even a 9 and 8 yr old are baffled by the election. What times we live in…
