Republican Factions Must Unite to Stop the Coming Tyranny

By Jerry A. Kane

 

The representatives of the Second Continental Congress were divided over many issues and spent an inordinate amount of time feuding, but they knew their colonies must unite to prevent the establishment of absolute tyranny over them.  They had the common sense to heed Benjamin Franklin’s warning, “We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.” The  unite, or die,” slogan, adapted from Franklin’s 1754 join, or die, political cartoon, became the rallying cry for independence for those patriots concerned about their colonies’ security and future.  Franklin’s cartoon of a snake cut into pieces, with each piece representing a colony, illustrated his warning that the colonies would die if they remained divided. 

 

Today, the Republican Party lingers in disunity, while leftists single-mindedly rejoice for the birth of Leviathan (the totalitarian nanny state) to come round at last.  Like their colonial counterparts, Republican representatives must also unify and declare their independence from the left’s nanny state and the establishment of its absolute tyranny over them.  As their colonial counterparts broke away from the treasonous Tories loyal to the tyrannous monarchy, Republicans must break clean from the progressives in their ranks loyal to the encroaching Leviathan, for the history of progressivism is replete with injuries and usurpations to facilitate the absolute tyranny of this slouching, pitiless beast over freedom loving, liberty minded individuals. 

 

The treasonous element within the party has allowed the progressives to render Republican lawmakers powerless to stop the largest expansion of government authority and control over the private sector and the lives of individuals in the history of this country.  Some Republican pundits and politicians became so troubled by Leviathan’s image out of the Spiritus Mundi (spirit of the world) that they have hoisted the white flag and pronounced fiscal conservatives and the  free market … dead in America.”  To wit, the current state of the party is “The best lack all conviction, while [t]he worst are full of passionate intensity.”   

 

The self-same American spirit that once beckoned the representatives of the Second Continental Congress to declare their independence from the tyranny of the world’s most powerful empire, now summons Republican lawmakers to pledge their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to stop the progressives from establishing a Leviathan nanny state.  That very spirit, which once stirred the imaginations of colonists to embark upon man’s greatest experiment for self-government and individual freedom, again moves across this nation calling on the party’s Fiscal Conservative, Social Conservative, Paleoconservative, National Security Conservative, Federalist, Libertarian, Theoconservative, and Moderate factions to set aside feuds and disagreements on their interests long enough to unify and drive out the treasonous progressive element and take up the fight for freedom and independence against their common enemy, the progressives’ nanny state beast.

 

No other established political party or newly formed third party movement can drive Leviathan from America’s shores.  The Democrat Party has been taken over by the progressives, and their cadre of super-rich donors has been building local, state, and national organizations to ensure the long-term success of progressive politics in the 21st century.  For 20 years, progressive activists  have established think tanks, leadership schools, and candidate training centers and channeled hundreds of millions of dollars through organizations such as, the Democracy Alliance, Media Matters, Democracia USA, and Netroots to “to elect Democrats up and down the ballot in every state.”   

 

The Framers of the Constitution provided separation of powers, checks and balances, and the Electoral College to deter the formation of parties and did not foresee the domination of a two-party system in their government. Nevertheless, America’s political landscape for the last 140 years has been dominated by the Republican and Democrat parties, which indicates that the chances for the Libertarian, Constitution, and Reform parties, or any other party or movement to break the current stranglehold the Democrat Party has on the three branches of government is slim to none. 

 

The progressives’ election strategy embodies the Stalinist notion that “The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.” Only a grassroots Reagan coalition takeover of the Republican Party can stop the progressives’ 2010 strategy to shape the future of U.S. elections and undermine the electoral process through the Secretary of State Project and their plan to manipulate the decennial census redistricting process by expanding and redrawing the Electoral College map.

 

Acts of futility such as the Tea Bag Revolution and the 9-12 Project will beget a Sisyphus Effect, i.e., discouragement and a feeling of helplessness at the inability to change things.  Talk radio celebrities and pundit personalities pushing such folly have opened greater fissures in the Republican Party and are keeping its members at odds with one another, unable to fight the rising Leviathan.  The sheer brilliance of their travesty is truly diabolical.

 

Under the guise of non-partisanship and fair-mindedness, Bill O’Reilly, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs, and others regularly denounce both parties as blameworthy and equally at fault.  These self-righteous, self-important corporate media clowns kick the Republican Party under the same bus with the Democrat Party and glibly pronounce a pox on both houses.  Their sin ignores both the progressive take-over of the Democrat Party and the stalwart Republicans who hold to their principles and fight the spineless leadership and treasonous progressives in their own party.  

 

Many in the purportedly right-leaning media have painted the Republican Party with the same broad brush as the Democrat Party, and their diabolical stroke has left the Republican Party in shambles but has strengthened and emboldened the Democrat Party.  Such broad-brushing of politicians has helped to loose the progressive hordes on America.  Only a Reagan-like epiphany — to wake up one day and realize that they have been going out and helping to elect the people who have been causing the things they have been criticizing — will shake these media clowns from their current self-assured, self-righteous state.

 

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed,” and the window of opportunity to halt America’s slide to serfdom will slam shut after the 2010 election.  Republicans can either wait for an epiphany among corporate media’s bloviating heads and pundits, or believe as Reagan did and act on Thomas Paine’s words, “We have it in our power to begin the world over again.”
