Politics: Comments Overheard

While wading through the comments on this over at CA’s Intel Hub, Mike said:

I may be wrong, but I do believe Obama will pull this off.

What Carter could not do, Obama will: utilize the full power of the State (DOJ Civil Rights Division, for example), the full power of the MSM, the full power of racial invective, and the tools of mass mobilization (FB, and so on) to eke out a victory in November. As sad as it sounds, the U.S. of 2012 is no longer the U.S. of 1980 — and 2008 proved it.

The need for a Nietzschean “Dear Leader” is palpable. Vendors outside the DNC were selling hagiographic memorabilia of Obama using John 3:16 (“For God so loved the world…”) to pose Obama as the Son of God. Inside the Convention, the Dems were doing one better: removing “God” from their platform, leaving Government and Obama as the new implicit Deity. Villaraigosa rammed “God” back in there, but he did so over the protests of most of the delegates — and we all know that the Dems put it back in for tactical reasons, not because they truly have a God aside from Obama. It doesn’t get more unhinged than that; it’s mass psychosis, and most of the country is infected with it. Obama is the beneficiary, and a transitory one at that, but he is a useful marker of our decline: a Nation that can elect an Obama is a Nation that will not last long. Hence the need to prepare for the eventual break-up of the U.S.

I am not particularly religious, but even I am scared as hell of the Dems now. This hunger to deify a mortal man signals the end of any republican inclination in a large percentage of the American populace, just as the same urge to deification signaled the end of the Roman Republic. History doesn’t always repeat, but it does rhyme.

And I hope we all are clear on what such a population is capable of.

Especially this:

That’s some scary excrement right there.

Sic transit gloria mundi.

Whenever man is given the spotlight, our true nature shines through and literally millions die. It. Happens. Every. Damn. Time. Why would this time be any different? Add our current tech levels to that equation and you have the formula for mass slaughter on a historically epic scale.

This is not an, “he must be defeated at any cost…” post either. The other guy is just as bad – only delaying the inevitable. It’s the philosophical construct here.

The state is not God. It will never be. Man is imperfect and deeply flawed. Relying on the morality of either of those will cause civilization to tumble.

 

 

Shining Ray of Hope or Status Quo?

See this article about the Demonrat Senator from TX and his “lets kill the cartel leaders with drone strikes” recent electoral defeat.

Can’t do a permalink to it, but there is a comment from one, “florian.royack” that says this:

I believe any elected representative, Rep-Dem or INd who supports drones in US airspace should be voted out of office

As do I, though we all know that won’t happen – or will it? My answer, btw, is just to end The War on SOME Drugs.

Perhaps, in some minute way, a tide, somewhere, just turned…

Political Analysis

And not by me…

This is spot on. Best, likely most accurate account of the next election cycle I have yet to read:

Look for the R’s to hand President Obama the election.

Hillary: WaPo floated her as VP again, expanding the field of professional D’s that are flirting with a subversive assault on the Obama machine.  This will be the real story of the election cycle, I’m afraid.

All things considered, how does this impact your preps and the battlespace going forward? Doesn’t matter if you don’t dig on politics. I don’t either anymore, but as it has been said before, who is in office next January will have an impact on you going forward whether you like it or not.
