Yesterday was the most demoralizing day conservatives and defenders of liberty in America have suffered since the onerous health care law was signed into law by the lawless President Obama. The Supreme Court’s ruling to uphold Obamacare is nothing short of a disaster for liberty loving people in this nation. Congress can now punish American
citizens subjects for any economic activity or inactivity so long as they backstop the mandate with a tax.
If Congress wants to force you to buy legal insurance and you don’t want it, no prob, you can pay a tax instead. If Congress wants every American to own a 2012 or newer vehicle, no problem. If you don’t want or can’t afford a new vehicle you can just pay the tax for not buying one! See how that works? We can play this game all day long.
But the question becomes, what now? Now that the concept of individual economic choice is dead, now that the government can force us to buy crap we don’t want and tax us if we don’t obey, what now?
Now, we fight. We fight like hell. Tooth and nail. We seek no quarter, we take no prisoners.
We conservatives have always tried to play nice. We’ve always played by the rules. We know the dead vote, so rather than trying to convince the dead to vote for us we work to get enough of the living to vote our way that the dead can’t swing the margins against us. No more. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more McCain style “I’d rather lose gracefully than win by playing dirty.” Nope. We’ve passed the line of demarcation. We’ve crossed the Rubicon. The point of no return is in our rearview mirror.
Pelosi, Reid, Obama, and the rest of the gang proved conclusively that the only thing that matters is absolute and total power. Not just the accumulation of power, but the unapologetic wielding of that power.
So now we fight to accumulate power. We accumulate enough raw unchecked power to roll back the socialist, bureaucratic entitlement, liberty-infringing tide that has drowned our country in debt, regulation, and fear. We fight not just to win, but to defeat, to crush, to leave the other side in utter devastation. We fight to reclaim our way of life. We fight to throw of the burden of being a Subject and to reclaim our rightful title of Citizen. We fight to abolish the Crown.
Our fight must be at every level. Every election must be contested. From dog catcher to school board to city council to county executive to state legislature, governor, congress, and president. We have to utterly destroy the idea that once instituted, a burdensome law can never be repealed. We have to roll back the bureaucracy and remind the Executive that they don’t make laws, they enforce them. The nightmare of bureaucratic rule making must end. Congress must reclaim its authority and its power over the purse.
Yesterday we got shellacked. Badly, horribly shellacked. Today we man the barricades. We mount an offensive. We charge the field with reckless abandon. Today, we fight. In November, we win. In January, we repeal. President Romney’s signature accomplishment should be entered into the Federal Register before Former President Obama’s plane lands in Chicago on 1.20.2013.
If you’ve never been politically involved, get out there and volunteer. If you’ve never donated money, donate. Set aside your Starbucks money or your McDonald’s money or whatever small luxury you allow yourself, and put all of it into the campaign between now and November. Make phone calls, knock on doors, talk to your friends and neighbors. Join your local GOP GOTV operation. Leave no (Republican) voter behind. If you’re unsatisfied with the candidates in your local races, run for office yourself. We can’t bitch about bad candidates if we’re unwilling to step into the ring ourselves. Argue. Persuade. Fight. Win.
Remember, winning is all that matters. The accumulation of abject power, and the exercise thereof, is all that matters now. It’s the only way we roll back the tide. Now let’s get out there and do it.
