The Republic is Dead, and a Storm is Coming
By Ron Lee
The Verbal Assassin
“Wake Up, America,” people cry. “Have hope, faith, and heart that the Republic can survive,” others proclaim. Honestly, I don’t know why everyone can’t face the reality that it’s dead already – the dream, the great experiment of America, has failed. While the idea of an American Republic has been kept alive to assuage the masses, the reality is it was taken from us years ago while we slept.
Face it, liberty is gone. Freedom exists, now, only in the ideology of the Constitution, not in the practice of “Democracy” and a United States Government who rules us with tens of thousands of “laws” that yoke us to an indentured servitude of paying for its spending spree. Those in government have completely usurped the power of the people, all under the guise of protecting the people from, well, themselves. Because, left to their own devices, the people would choose to do things that are bad for their bodies, or maybe even good for their bodies, but bad for corporate profit bottom-lines – lobbying corporations, the bedfellows of government. The people, however, should have the absolute freedom to do, say, eat, be or think whatever they want, but they don’t, because Big Bro says, “no.” And that’s that. No more Republic.
So where is the outrage? Where are the people fighting the overthrow of their God-given liberties? Where are the true patriots? …Nowhere. They’re still talking about preparing for action while not even realizing the game is already over – the past inaction all these years has assured the King’s victory.
But, what if it wasn’t over? What would be the threshold that government would have to cross to make the people rise to take back their Creator given rights?
During a recent “Support Rural America Sheriffs’ Event” hosted by a great American, Josephine County Oregon Sheriff Gil Gilbertson, 6 sheriffs told their stories and emparted upon the constitutionally patriotic attendees that they would stand for the peoples’ Constitutional rights. As I was listening, I found myself inspired to hope for the future by their stories. Then an analogy sprang to mind…
What if the People were like Israel, fighting against others who didn’t believe they should even exist. The People just wanting to be free and left alone … to have a country that is theirs.
The government is Iran. It has grown ever powerful and believes it is because of it that the world is different today. It believes that the People shouldn’t freely have a country to call their own and they are doing everything they can to make sure they don’t. In fact, they are building the potential to nuke the People’s constitutional rights once and for all and have plans to sell off their lands – the People, as intended, would cease to exist.
The Oath Keepers, and Constitutional Sheriffs, those who are in positions of power that truly believe in the Constitutional Republic, are likened to the International Community who has protected the People all these years. They believe that you have to work within the confines of the government itself (“play by Iran’s rules”) in order to make a difference. They believe the courts aren’t corrupted beyond belief; they believe government still believes it is accountable. But they are wrong. And because of these beliefs they refuse to draw that line and truly support the people.
Right now, you could say I am like Benjamin Netenyahu. I am asking, where is the red line in the sand? What line does the government cross before we act – dare I say before we revolt? The answer is of course mute, as the Republic is gone already and the question was answered before it was asked – there is no line. We are ruled now by an elite few who can simply create law through executive order and administrative processes. We the People are slaves to our own insecurity while clinging to old ideologies long gone.
God Bless America.
Writer’s Note: I expect to get a great deal of email calling me some kind of neocon for my Israeli reference. Why? For the same reason good people have let this country fail… They just don’t understand.
If you haven’t already, please prepare yourselves and your families for the times ahead. Should Israel strike Iran, or Iran launch its own October surprise, the world will change. War will touch our shores, and more people would be willing to give up freedoms in exchange for false security.
