Still, today, stewing over what has happened in America to awareness of its form of government, and its commitment to its Constitution; to say, to the rule of law. This (as cleaned up a little punctuation-wise) to a site at World Net Daily, a blog by Lord Christopher Monckton, titled 'A Sad Farewell to the U.S. Constitution'
The Democrats seem to have captured the high ground, in succeeding to demonize anybody who questions BHO's birth and background by calling them - labeling them - 'birthers'. The establishment Republicans throw up their hands in horror at the very idea of submitting themselves to being thus labeled the equivalent of (successfully implanted in their minds by the Dems) a 'pointy-headed crackpot'. And just so, has the Saul Alinsky 'Rules for Radicals' technique of ridiculing your opponents, rather than engaging with them in debate, won the day. A terrible day for democracy. And a day to be remembered. As the demise of the American Republic.
At least, almost......What will it take to salvage it??
Ignore the Republicans. They have sold out the country. Stand up for what you believe is right. Why should you care what someone calls you? Is your ego so big that you can't take an attempt (a calculated attempt) at ridicule? Stand for what you believe, and others will respond to that position as they will. And if someone calls you names - e.g., as I have heard, 'racist' and 'birther' and whatever all for various positions; the first, for being anti-illegal immigration - which covers an awful lot of honest, legal immigrants who are opposed to those coming into the country illegally; and so forth and so on - that just demonstrates the paucity of their position. If all they can do is call you names, you have won the debate, hands down. But apparently, big-ego Republicans need not apply, for such common sense.
If someone calls you a 'birther', say in response: "I'm not sure precisely what you mean by that term. Personally, I consider myself a constitutionalist. Do you want to debate on that term? For, one is either a constitutionalist or an anti-constitutionalist; one is either for the rule of law or the rule of men. Which are you for??"
Come on, folks. Let's have the debate. Let the Republicans go. They have had their day. They no longer speak for the grassroots of America - if they ever did. Well, they did, in part - as the party of 'the big tent', trying to hold all those opposed to big-spending Democrats. But that tent won't hold all those constituencies anymore. Once the Republican Party itself proved to be pusillanimous, it can no longer serve that role. It's time for a change.
He said, who believes a big, BIG change is on the way anyway...
...but I feel strongly about how we get there. The consciousness with which we approach The Cosmic Unveiling. Or The Great Awakening. However one might 'label' it.
Speaking of labels......
