This is good.
Like other progressive presidents fond of military metaphors, he rejects the patience of politics required by the Constitution he has sworn to uphold.
Contempt for all things American and the basic framework by which we have been intended to operate.
I dig on Marines. My maternal grandfather (who died a few years ago at 84) was one, and an old school one at that. He managed to survive the Pacific Campaign in WWII. Tough old bastard. He taught me to shoot. Kind of a scary dude actually, but I digress…
See Vox’s post here:
So, the Washington-Wall Street Axis of Corruption have the police, the media, and the Mexican gangs to whom they are selling guns and with whom they are laundering drug money. We the People only have the angry veterans of the USMC on their side.
Though, at heart, I truly wonder if the vaunted and venerated USMC will be on our side. Having that crowd solidly into the OPFOR camp stacks the odds so far against us that I fear the outcome…
Very good point.
If we are entering a Ruckus Phase of American History, I want the hardest, most Constitutionalist folks in positions of power as we can manage. Short of a nuclear Armageddon, politics will matter even when SHTF.
As much as we don’t want them to matter, they will. Some semblance of a power structure will remain no matter what happens.
