November 2012 provided us with a necessary loss. While the re-election of Barack Obama will deal us a near fatal blow over the coming years, it also saved us from the wolf in sheep’s clothing dressed in Mitt Romney. The pro tax, pro gun legislation candidate was not all that much better than Obama to begin with, and since his defeat, many RINO’s have been spotted and shown their true colors. The likes of John McCain (another candidate against Obama mind you) and other senators such as Lindsey Graham have shown the nation that they are progressives, and have no interest in your liberties.
While the re-election of Barack Obama is a smack in the face for our country, it does not come without a silver lining.
The rise of the libertarian revolution is well under way. The RINO’s of the Republican Party have been targeted, and the Libertarian conservatives are well on the rise.
Alternative news networks are being established, and are beginning to take the fight to the complicit mainstream media.
It’s frightening to think that when Glenn Beck wrote ‘The Overton Window’ only a few years ago it sounded like pure fiction, and now it has for the most part become pure fact. There are forces that are trying to take down this nation, and there are people actively plotting to end freedom and create a new world order.
This past weekend I spent a few hours reading his latest fiction book ‘The Eye of Moloch’ and was stunned at how accurately he portrays the not to distant future in America. I’m concerned because his last book came into fruition shortly after it was released.
While I usually take Glenn Beck with a grain of salt (his bashing of Ron Paul; a noted libertarian during the 2008 and 2012 republican campaigns have myself and other libertarians very suspicious about his ulterior motives) I do enjoy his fiction work, because his writing style is bite sized and full of vocabulary. Both ‘The Overton Window’ and ‘The Eye of Moloch’ are very informative about what is really going on out there, while giving an adventurous back drop.
While there may be IRS agents currently training in Atlanta on how to implement Obamacare, it is only a matter of time before the 2014 elections come up, and many progressives will be replaced by libertarian leaning senators. It is the job of all the Tea Parties and Libertarian organizations to take this fight for all that it is worth and ensure that new senators and representatives are not only thrown into the ring, but win during this crucial time in our nation’s (and the world’s) history.
If we can win this next round of elections, we can push forward with impeachment proceedings against our self imposed king, and rid the country of the cancerous ‘Obamacare’ which is stifling innovation in the work place.
And as for the next election; Rand Paul has already set the stage. He knew that without his father as the GOP nominee, they would fail in November last year. It cost him nothing, except a little scorn from Libertarians including myself to get behind Mitt Romney during his run. He knew that the flip flop would fail, and that it would set him up for November 2016. He and his father have been sowing the seeds of an intellectual revolution in the minds of Libertarians and Tea Party people alike over the last five years, and their constitutional minded tactics are beginning to pay off.
While the impending doom of collectivism is now close on our heels, the shining beacon of liberty is within reach. Is today really so much different than what the patriots of the revolution faced all those years ago? I think not.
Liberty is within reach because an idea cannot be defeated by any army or any government. Keep your head up, keep your wits about you; this fight is only just getting started.
