Some excellent points on the coming chaos

Over at Sipsey St, Mike makes the following observation:

You know what's funny? Funny as in weird not funny, hah ha.

Here we are on the verge of a civil war and because the news media does not even recognize the validity of our grievances,and certainly never reports them, nobody thinks it is coming except the people preparing for it.
And then an anonymous commenter replies:

They know damn well what the polls say - long before WE do. They have folks who do NOTHING else but watch such things.

They know damn well how angry we are.

They know they're going to suffer an electoral bloodbath in '10 and '12 - if not a literal one before.





In fact, I believe they're *HOPING* for all of the above.

They're hoping for a revolt - because it will give them excuse to implement martial law and do whatever they please - as in "The Day the Dollar Died".

Failing that, they're hoping for a currency or other collapse - for the exact same reason.

Failing both - by some miracle - they hope to lose enough seats in '10 to give the Stupid-party 50-50 "ownership" of the inevitable economic HELL that's coming. If it turns around before '12 they'll claim credit, if not they'll blame the Retardlicans.

Either way, they'll have jammed through their socialist agenda which will never be repealed, and they'll build on it when the pendulum swings again.

Either way, they'll have paid off their Union Masters, and stalled the total collapse of Medicare/SS just long enough for the Retardlicans to take the blame.

It's actually brilliant in a sick, sad way.

Though it pains me to say it, I've come to HOPE for a real, bloody revolution - it's the only way we'll ever get to RESTORATION.

As to failing "to think our way around the media blackout" -- I don't believe it matters. I live in a very rural area - among a lot of folk who "don't see no use for that there internet stuff" - and just today I heard some older men say "I ain't too old to tote my rifle one more time..."

Many, many, MANY people don't need to read Sipsey Street to see what time it is.

When the time comes, we'll have the usual ~20% of the population behind us, and ~45% arrayed AGAINST us. Thankfully the latter doesn't own firearms because they're askeered of 'em.

Even WITHOUT the Marxists currently in power, we're approaching 1/2 of the people in our nation who look forward to living on the .gov's teat - even if it's the HIND one it beats having to hunt and gather. Further, they all know we're a threat to their "free" rice-bowl - especially the majority of whom agree 110% with their Marxist/socialist ideals.

This to me is the reason civil war is inevitable: roughly 1/2 the population is reasonably conservative, the other 1/2 is well left of center, and we've FINALLY realized that being "nice" and "civil" only means forfeiting ground again and again and again - thus slowing but never stopping the incremental march to a fully socialist state.

Every single "compromise" moves us further away from where WE want to be - and we're finally done giving in.

OTOH, the Commu-sociacrats are even LESS willing to budge, and have finally stopped even PRETENDING.

Two UTTERLY opposite world-views held by nearly equal numbers, and both sides unwilling to budge. Does it happen NOW (in this Administration) or do we wait and let THEM start it after the next Retardlican majority?

As with any painful, bloody procedure, it's only going to be worse the longer we wait - plus it gives The Enemy longer to get a clue and start in with the weapons and ammo buying and training.

It'll never get any easier.

I could be very wrong but, I really don't see any other options. So then, let's avoid the long lines at the 2012 polls and lead a revolution NOW.

Why would someone put an M4 style stock on an M1A? The M4/AR is stuck with that awkward doohickey sticking out but the M1a is not. Makes no sense to me. With the EBR style stock an M1a can be probably 8 inches shorter for storage or portability.

I believe you're correct and have believed it since a few weeks before Obama was elected. All I can do is try to kill as many of them as possible when the SHTF. But, they must start it!

Conservatives and liberals? No. There are just two kinds of people. Those who think they have the right to take other people's stuff at gunpoint, and those who don't.

A whole lot of "Conservatives" fall into the first category.

Halcyon, I think you've had too much kool-aid. If you haven't noticed, liberals are the ones who keep trying to steal from successful, hard-working people in the form of taxes (at gunpoint upon refusal to pay) and give that to a bunch of freeloaders who don't understand the concept of personal responsibility.

Most of the conservatives I know only use their guns as a means of keeping the grimy hands of liberals and the .gov off of what we've worked for. We just want to be left alone. But, as I remember another quote from Mike V.,
"Son, let me explain something to you. You don't poke a wolverine with a sharp stick unless you want your balls ripped off."

We are the wolverine. Liberals are the moron with the sharp stick. You figure out the rest.
