A “Narrow, Delicate Path”
With talk of riots possibly occuring if Romney is elected, and murmurings of an American insurgency arising if Obama is elected to a second term, it was interesting to read a recent Oleg Volk post titled The mis-directed fetish of marksmanship., which I first was directed to by the blog RicketyClick.
RicketyClick has some good comments to make in regards to Oleg’s post, and in regards to talk of an American insurgency, but it is the following thoughts of Lyle, in a post at the blog The View From North Central Idaho titled American Insurgency? which, I think, encapsulates the stark truth of these matters, and echo RicketyClick’s closing thoughts.
Any widespread insurgency in America is really the kick-starter to global chaos, and for some of our enemies that is actually the plan - take advantage of a weakened and distracted America. Collapse the system into a new system. Twelfth Imam and all that rot.
We had best get our own houses in order, and look at our Progressive (incremental communist) neighbors as part of our country, which absolutely MUST hold together. “Last great hope for liberty” and “with malice toward none” come to mind. I hope you have your beliefs and your communication skills well-honed. You’ll need both, and by the way the latter doesn’t exist without the former - you know it.
Compromise with evil will get us nowhere and open warfare amongst us will get us all destroyed. That leaves us a very narrow, delicate path then, doesn’t it? Our enemies know it too. Interestingly, that applies to your personal life as well as your public life and the global situation.
