The Bad News

is that a reasonable person cannot fail to conclude that fascism is now the operative model of the US government.

We're not talking about SS troops in the streets. We're talking about a methodology enforcing an ideology. I'm not going to enumerate the proofs, it's been done by far more intelligent, eloquent, and readable people than we are. We're just gonna say what nobody else wants to say: our government is now fascist (absolute control of an ostensibly free society) by totalitarian methods (neutralize true religion, use capitalism against itself, etc) in its behavior.

We've all read 1984, most of us experienced that brief wave of terror when we did, and then we convinced ourselves that it couldn't happen to us. But it has.

The Obama administration is executing with absolute confidence a playbook that is detailed and thorough and time tested. We have no idea what's in it, but it's clear from its strutting arrogance, its abuse of power -- beginning with the media -- that the group in power is in possession of an agenda that imbues it with a sense of absolute...well, we said before the election: Power. It's all about power.

It should be clear to anyone who has observed (and has the courage to acknowledge) the de facto nationalization of the media that we have been attacked upon our own soil by weapons of mass destruction: ideas.

The way to fight back is with ideas. Truth, actually, which are ideas that cannot be trumped because they are truth. Truth inspires people. And inspired people can move mountains. America is an inspired country. Our constitution is an inspired document. Our Founders were inspired men. Inspired men will not give a vain thought about the cost of a worthy undertaking.
Speaking of The Founders, John Adams declared:

"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net." — John Adams, October 11, 1798

As indeed it appears they have. Adams continued:
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." ibid.
Since it's a matter of casual observation that the expression of religion has been excised from the town square and the dogma of morality has been emasculated to list of "personal preferences," it's clear that, as a people in love with a culture of death, we're no longer fit for the one form of government that is the least-worst of them all. The worst of them, history tells us, are as fearsome and wretched as anything ever conceived in the wayward heart and deluded mind of man.
But we are a moral and religious people, most of us; a streetwise yet excruciatingly tolerant one, too. We now have our work cut out for us. Would that this generation would apprehend its inspiration, before the lock on power that the uninspired aspire to becomes absolute.
