But when shall we be stronger?

2012 October 17
by justrand

On March 23, 1775, Patrick Henry gave what I truly believe is the greatest speech in the history of mankind (note: I don’t consider the ‘Sermon on the Mount’ to a “speech”…it was a sermon)

Towards the middle of his casus belli, Patrick Henry posed a question that resonates (or should) with us today: “But when shall we be stronger?”

This question was pointed directly at those who hoped there would be a more favorable time for action (if need be) in the future…and he had alluded to them early in his speech:

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts.”

There are those who cling to the hope that if Barack Obama is reelected there will be another chance “later on” to put America back on the path our Founders intended. To which I reply, if we cannot effect such change now, “when shall we be stronger?”

Patrick Henry then asked: “Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house?”

But in our time the question is: “Will it be in the next election, when 4 more years of Obama have seen all hope of Voter Identification wiped out, and our every move is controlled (directly or indirectly) by the government…our very access to medical attention depending upon the government favoring us with such? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a government agent monitors every sermon, every utterance, every communication…in the name of “Fairness”?

There is much that a President Mitt Romney MAY do…for better or ill. There is one thing he WILL do (or rather, make possible): he will provide an opportunity for a do-over in four years.

The ONLY reason Obama has slowed down in his push for an Imperial Presidency is that he needed to be reelected…he needed “flexibility”. If reelected he will not even wait to be re-inaugurated…he will step on the Statist gas and run roughshod over what remains of our Constitution and the “co-equal branches of government”.  Depend upon it.

Henry’s next question applies to us now, as it did those in attendance in 1775: “Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?”

Make no mistake, President Obama WILL have us “bound hand and foot” well within 4 more years. And then what? With TalkRadio, FoxNews, and Conservative blog-sites such as this muzzled…or outlawed…how shall we fight back?

“It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, “Peace! Peace!” — but there is no peace.”

Except in our case it’s: “Gentlemen may cry, “2016! 2016! – but 2016 will NOT matter!”

There are those have declared that though they are opposed to Obama, they will “sit this election out” (or vote 3rd Party) to display their dissatisfaction with Romney (and/or ANY “Mormon”)…such willingness provides aid & comfort to the enemy of American freedom: Barack Obama. In the words of Patrick Henry: “Forbid it, Almighty God!”

I pray not for the victory of Romney, but for the defeat of Obama. In 2012, however, it is the same prayer.

    IN all of the confusion of when Obama finally admitted Benghazi wasn’t a result of a protest about a video but an AQ terrorist attack, DON’T FORGET… Obama refuses to call FT. HOOD murders a terrorist attack and still calls it workplace violence.

    Awesome post, justrand. What a way you have with words and history. Perfect response to those who are being so selfish as to think it would be better to stay home and not vote. I understand folks not wanting to violate their principles, I’ve been there, done that, but how is allowing Obama to win protecting anyone’s precious principles? Isn’t it in our hearts and minds to promote and secure the constitution and our country, our very freedoms? We can’t very well do that if we no longer have a country…

    I’m just blown away. Someone has lost their ever-loving mind. I’ll take the Mormon over the Moron any day and twice on Sundays.

    We will have work to do, but oh my God, if Obama wins, we are really…well, it’s all over then, cause the fat lady will have sung.

    In 4 years, if churches are not outlawed, there will be a government official in the back pew of every one. Only pre approved messages may be taught. Count on it. Churches that still wish to preach the non-diluted gospel will be forced to do so…underground. This is what the churches in China go through, and it will absolutely happen here. Additionally, we have only to look at who Obama admires, to see what direction he plans to take.

    After the media orgasm is over, they are realizing that Romney won all the key points in their own polls.

    Don’t seem to be touting their own polls. BUT, THE VOTERS KNOW!!! AND THAT IS WHAT COUNTS!!!

    Rom is over 50% in Gallup and above the margin of error.

    The theory being that reduced economic activity reduces demand for gas.
    Theoretically speaking, if no one drove anymore, gas prices would be zero,
    as demand would be zero. Same for buggy whips. Somehow he never takes the supply side of this equation into account.

    Didnt seem to me that ole Patrick Henry simply wanted to replace the current Tyrant (the king of England) with a more “acceptable” one or one that simply was part of his political club

    Nope

    He fought hard to educate people on the dangers of Authoritrian, top-down, elitest, run-of-men not law, unlimited government……

    As pointed out, he wasnt a wishful thinker or dreamer…….he took meaninful actions not siddling up with whatever Statist political charlitan that happened to placate him with meaningless platitudes

    As far as the world as we know it ending…….well the world of Constitutional government and Liberty has been dying for over 100 years

    #18 The important thing is not “voting” or participating in some ritual that puts the appearance of approval on the oligarchy we have this country……

    The meaningful things is espousing and acting on the right principles…..

    Which at this momment, I refuse to compromise again

    Especially on the vauge hope that an Estabishment GOP wind-sock will somehow get a clue about Liberty, Individual Rights and REAL free market economics

    But hey, if you can rationalize doing that…..go for it

    As far as this being “the most super duper critical election ever”……..arent they all according to the professional politicans and media?

    Read history…….we have been on a 150 year slide back toward re-instatement of centralized, authoritrian Oligarchy – which has been the norm in human history

    I have lived under Statist leaders and Congress my entire life, and yes there has been a steady compounding of Federal power at the expense of the state and individuals that entire time

    So I am not going to freak out or compromise my values about that anymore

    I dont base my life or freedom anymore on the pronoucements or “laws” of flawed men called “politicans” for sure

    10 – Do you really need it explained to you? You do remember oil was like 115$ a barrel at the beginning of sept 2008, and it was like 50$ in November. Contracting economies everywhere = less demand or perception of demand hence the lower price. You may not like it but what the president said was pretty dam accurate as to why the prices were where they were – at that exact moment in time. Of course this does not mean they shot higher because world economy skyrocketed, but a combo of partial recovery and the fed flooding the market with dollars = something oil is priced in. Course the later was never touched on at the debate.

    The point is choosing……..yes, choosing not to chose is a choice

    In fact, the goal is to have a society respective to individual rights and free markets and a government so constrained in its power that the “choice” or vote or whomever holds the office beomes irrelevant

    The fact that we increasing have this “winner take all” sweepstakes for the power to impose dictatorial fiats on your fellow citizens just shows how far we have strayed from real Liberty

    In fact, when we get those Euro-like 80-90% participation rates in election is when I will get scared crap-less because that means that NO SPHERE of human lives is not up for grabs by simple one-time majority vote…..

    The fact that 50% plus people in this country see no bearing on their personal lives in participating in this political circus simply indicates strength to me in that government is not yet fully pervasive in everybody’s lives yet…..

    That is, their world dont revolve around the fiats of some establishment hack in DC

    Please inform me of substantive policy positions or better yet ACTIONS by the party or its main candidate that back up your claim of a real difference….

    I have asked for that specifically on dozens of issues:

    Medicare? Is the GOP going to abolish it?

    Medicade? Same

    SS and forced “savings” for your own good? Seems that the GOP keeps talking about “saving” it

    Government run central bank? GOP loves it

    Fiat Money? All for it…..gold standard…..wow…..they want to “investigate” it

    Debt/spending? Continues to increase under Ryan’s plan only at a slightly lesser rate then D’s

    Taxes? Keep em…….simply raise them via elimination of deductions (“simplification”) vice rate increases

    ObamaCare? Love it – invented it (romney) and extended it to elderly (ryan-wyden plan)….keeping it

    Wars? Start new ones in Syria, Iran, and Libya while keeping the current ones in Iraq and Afgan going…..same position as D

    DO Education – DO Commerce – DO Energy? Eliminate them GOP? NOPE…..more money for education!

    So where is this huge difference?

There’s really not much left for him to surprise us with, since the unemployment numbers fell flat. There is a website hinting at some kind of surprise, and they are not saying who it will benefit/hurt. The blurred pic they posted looks like a tax form.

    “‘Dems and GOP Agree, Government Needs More Money’

    Posted by Michael F. Cannon

    That’s the (fair) title of this blog post over at National Journal‘s Influence Alley:

    The federal government needs more money. That’s one thing both parties can agree on, Republican and Democratic lawmakers said Tuesday. The rub, of course, is how to get it.

    Reps. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., and Allyson Schwartz, D-Pa. said at a National Journal panel on Tuesday morning that there’s no question that more revenue is needed. Democrats say they can raise the money by letting upper-income tax cuts expire, while Republicans say economic growth alone will help raise the cash.

    “We need more revenue,” said Roskam, the House GOP’s chief deputy whip. “If you can get the money to satisfy obligations, that’s an area of common ground.”

    Let’s hear it for duopoly, eh, comrades?

    Without it, we might suffer political parties that question whether those government “obligations” are wise, or necessary, or constitutional; or that point out governments don’t have needs, people do; or that reject the premise that politics is an exercise in deciding who needs what; or that argue for eliminating entire spheres of government activity.

    Can you tell I’ve just watched a presidential debate?”

    http://www.cato-at-liberty.org/dems-and-gop-agree-government-needs-more-money/

    Can someone explain the “huge” and “obvious” difference in governing philosophies here that I need to get all worked up about so that I need to spend all my time and money shilling for Willard and the GOP establishment?

    Gotta a story to relate. Having bought the homestead we are having the usual BS of receiving some former resident’s mail. Usual note sends it back to the mailman. But we received two letters from the Board of Elections. So I called them up to pass on the information. The answer —

    “Just send it back Sir. We’ll take it from there.”

    I was dumbfounded.

    They won’t take the information from me over the phone but if I scrawl some nonsense on the envelope they will believe that. What the?! Which then brings me to observe what about absentee ballots? If I wanted to create a bunch of mischief I would just walk down the block opening mailboxes scrawl return to sender and invalidate both a vote and their registration.

    What a way to run a country.

    More backup on my post yesterday —

    Its largest drop? From Q3 to Q4 2008, when it collapsed from 78.8 to 16.5. In this diffusion index, above 50 means growth. So, within a quarter, these CEOs transitioned from decent growth to utter fiasco. Nestled in their own world, they’d been caught flat-footed by the financial crisis. Incredibly, the index had actually edged up in the prior quarter though the housing bubble was blowning up, financial institutions were cratering, and Bear Stearns was gone. These CEOs should have seen that something big was on the way. But blinded by optimism and intoxicated by confidence in the system that had served them so well, they didn’t. Which left them with exactly zero predictive capabilities.

    Now, suddenly, these CEOs have become morose. 58% expected sales to increase over the next six months, down from 75% in the prior quarter. By comparison, on the eve of Lehman and AIG, 78.8% of these prescient CEOs had expected sales to grow—and watched with astonishment the nosedive weeks later. Only 30% of the CEOs said they would increase capital expenditures, the lowest score since Q3 2009. And only 29% expected to create jobs, while 34% expected to cut jobs. For a direr picture, you have to go back to Q4 2009—when the unemployment rate perforated 10%!

    Chirsitian Libertrian Beliefs……

    Disclaimer up front: libertarian is the adjective and Christian is the noun.

    I believe in the Apostle’s Creed, either traditional or ecumenical versions. Additionally I believe God is the Creator and sustainer of the universe; no God, no universe.

    As God gave man free will, I believe God intends for man to be libertarian. Giving man the ability to accept or reject God is the ultimate in liberty.

    I believe that the Christian Bible is the inspired word of God.

    I believe that all laws must agree with Natural Law; as St. Augustine said “An unjust law is is no law at all.”

    I believe the Constitution and Bill of Rights are the law of this land and that any subsequent federal law not required by those documents is invalid.

    I believe that government exsists only to protect our God-given unalienable rights that He as Creator endowed to every human: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness.

    I believe in the sanctity of human life, in utero and as a basic right which government must preserve.

    I believe in the Zero Agression Principle; that is, violence of any type (if used) should only be used in defense.

    I believe God revealed will in the Bible calls every beliver to charitable works toward the poor, the weak, and the elderly. However, God does not give us charter to use violence against our fellow man to aquire the resources to do said works either as individuals or collectively through the agency of government or the color of secular law.

    I believe that America should stirctly adhere to the long held Christian theory of “just war” before entering into conflict with other nations. And when doing so, it should be done Constitutionally through a valid declaration of War only.

    I believe more government always means less freedom and liberty.

    I believe in the Free Market; absent of all government intervention and governed only by mutally agreed upon and completely voluntary exchange. I believe that the Bible teachings actively support individual free exchange and volutary cooperation as the basis of prosperity.

    I believe if “justice” is the solution, then “judgment” is on the table; they are inseparable. I believe only God’s judgment is always just.

    I believe you cannot successfully legislate morality. Attempts to legislate morals with regards to sex, alcohol, and drugs will invaribly fail as history has shown time and again.

    I believe that I can’t be good enough to get into heaven; only faith in Jesus Christ and His completed works can save me. I cannot save myself through my own works or efforts.

    I believe that God will forgive me if some of my beliefs are wrong.

    Nationally he is pretty close — http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/unemployment-charts

    But depending on your MSA it could be higher. Places like central valley CA its approaching 40%.

    I believe all of the Libertarian Creed youpublished. So, why do you wish to allow continuation of the Party which believes none of that, but in fact is trying to destroy to destroy all of the platform?

    …or consider this. “All it takes for evil to win is for good people to do nothing”. Not voting is doing nothing. A vote for nothing is a vote to allow the evil dem party to continue.

    RP, 70,

    That is a good read. Now the author ought to do us a favor and write another piece on the complicity of the MSM in covering it up for the Oministration. The facts were out there for them from their foreign partners from nearly day one yet they preferred to orchestrate with the sad sacks in this group of thieves. They are co-conspirators in this coverup.
