AT THE CROSSROADS
By Tom in NC
I’ve been holding off making a comment about the events in Tucson, Arizona perpetrated by a deranged, homicidal madman, but I can no longer hold my tongue.
Liberals (politicians, Sheriff Dupnik and the media lackeys) are very likely handing Loughner’s defense attorneys a golden key to get him off through a plea of insanity. Instead of placing the blame properly on the murderer, liberals instead are demonizing conservatives and exploiting the tragedy by seeking to curtail Americans’ free speech rights guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution — all in the name of combatting “hate rhetoric.” These illiterate, illogical and idiotic liberals are assaulting our free speech and our sensibilities with their insane accusations against talk radio, the TEA Party and Sarah Palin, of which they have absolutely no evidence to back up their assertions.
From what we know so far, Jared Lee Loughner had acted alone. He was obsessed and angered with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords since 2007, long before the founding of the TEA Party movement and before Sarah Palin came on the national scene. We also know he did not watch news shows or listen to talk radio. He is a drug-addicted loner, trouble maker and now a mass murderer/assassin.
Every since the heinous crime took place, liberals have taken every opportunity to place the blame on Conservatives. We have become the scapegoats in their political blame-game. Undeterred by facts, their rhetoric has reached a fever pitch and it’s starting to sound like an all-out war against us. There is talk of reviving the Fairness Doctrine, new gun laws and restrictions on our speech. Who knows where it will go from here.
I’m not sure what the immediate future will bring, but I do know things have got to change. There has been talk of a second revolution, but I think it’s just about time that we should think more about secession — letting states break off from the union and become independent from the federal government and cut all ties with Washington DC. The federal government has become bloated, incompetent, tyrannical and wasteful. It’s time to break free of this tyranny. I don’t see any other way to gain back our freedoms that steadily have been eroding for decades now.
I’m willing to relocate to any state that is willing to secede. To tell you the truth, I’m fed up with being called a terrorist, a murderer and a racist simply because I disagree with the status quo, because I vote conservative, because I am a TEA Party member and because I see my country as a hollow shell of what it used to be. The greatness of our country rapidly is fading, stripped away by the disease of liberalism. I say let the liberals have their havens of drug, debauchery, tax-and-spend tyranny, and big-brother, big-government lunacy. We’ll keep our rights, freedoms, liberties and prosperity.
The choice is before us.
Is it Liberalism — with its high taxes, out of control spending, high unemployment, reckless social programs and inefficient education system? Or is it Conservatism’s free market prosperity, small efficient government, increased employment, choices and quality education, and individual accountability and self sufficiency?
Only by seceding can Conservatives combat liberalism, eliminate it possibly once and for all, or at least minimize it so much as to make it totally irrelevant.
