Where Would We Be If...

Mike Bunch · Oct. 24, 2013

If someone set out to invent a person with all the naive ineptitude of Gomer Pyle and elevated him from Private to the rank of Commandant Of The Marine Corps, with all the power that position commands…no, wait….

If they combined the masterpiece of naiveté and stupidity that is Gomer Pyle with the malevolent narcissism of Charles Manson, and threw in the overinflated self image of a Paris Hilton, added a couple of ghost written books, hid all traces of his background and nonexistent achievements, and presented him to an electorate populated with enough stupefied PC driven voters…no, wait…

If they provided him with a compliant media, access to unlimited funds, and a teleprompter, and surrounded him with people adept at misdirection and expert at invoking the magic “race card”, what might they get?

If they placed that person in full control of the most powerful nation on earth and gave him the sole authority to direct that nation’s military, its foreign policy, economy, education system, charged him with protecting that nation’s sovereignty, gave him the right to form policies that would affect the lives of every citizen of that country, and allowed him to create laws out of thin air with the wave of his hand, what sort of outcome would they expect?

And suppose that, once elected, that person proceeded from day one to make a mockery of the Office of the Presidency, the highest office in the land, and of the oath he took to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, alienate our allies, and singlehandedly create the most deadly environment in the middle East that has ever existed. If someone supported his election, on what grounds would they object?

And suppose further, that the Congress of the United States, 535 people had for decades, with few exceptions, been playing a game with the American people right under our noses, designed to protect not the people’s rights, but their own power and privilege? What if they were now so compromised, and so addicted to their own elite status, that they were unable and unwilling to take steps to remedy the situation?

Where would we be, as a nation, if all that happened?

Where indeed. One specific result would be Obama’s “signature achievement”, the unfixable mess that is Obamacare. It is a predictable result of all this stupidity, narcissism and hubris. Anyone who supports this administration and its goals can consider themself personally responsible for this travesty. They own it. History will remember it as the single worst piece of nonsense ever to be forced on a free people. The government, by forcing us to enter a contract to buy a product whether we want it or not, has set itself against the sovereign people of this nation, and behaves not as our servant, but our master.

If you bothered to read this far, it’s not likely that you have been a party to any of the above. Regardless, if what we are witnessing continues unchecked, it will all ultimately lead to a personal, unavoidable fork in the road. We will all find ourselves confronting a stark choice: Submit, or fight.

For most of us, the choice has always been perfectly clear.

Anyone who supports this man, even now, has made a grave mistake, for which all of our progeny will suffer. If they haven’t figured it out by now, it’s not likely that they ever will, and the same stupidity that governs their choices now will lead them to a second mistake.

The second greatest mistake they will ever make is believing that the calmness they presently see from the rest of us is a sign of weakness or lack of resolve.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” – Samuel Adams

It's Right. It's Free.
