And no, these thoughts on the Long March Through the Institution aren’t even mine, but they are correct.  Take a look at what R.S. McCain has to say on the subject…

And to all of the new Tea Party folks, let me pass on a warning: the two ears, one mouth rule applies. There is much to learn about the sordid realities of our government, as it’s deviated well off course. Relax. Focus the passion on sober, positive deeds that advance the Constitutional ball. Screaming about Barack Obama’s Martian birth certificate and obvious status as a High Priest of Cthulhu is ONLY ABETTING HIM.

I know it seems counter-intuitive, but spend some time studying. The history of How Things Got So Jacked Up is important if you want to help in ways that are actually constructive.

It’s easy to get pissed off, disgusted, drop some F-bombs, and leave. But half the recovery battle is showing up; the other half is staying engaged. Your foe has massive endurance. Our task is to execute Gramsci’s Long March through the Institutions in reverse. Stand by for a multi-decade struggle. Homeschool your children. Teach them right from wrong. Teach them history. Teach them to reject the corrosive Postmodern piffle passing for thought these days.

But don’t expect instant gratification.

We are in this for the long haul.  This is what I said a few years ago (with some slight updates, given that it was originally written in 2009).

Remember this quote from Michelle Obama?

“Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone . . . Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual – uninvolved, uninformed.”

She was far more prophetic than she will ever know.

Since Obama’s election, millions of Americans have become more informed, and more involved.  The Tea Party movement has galvanized millions in calling for smaller, more responsible government.  We are reading more and more, and in many cases, writing extensively and otherwise exchanging information.  We are in the process of returning the GOP to its roots.  We are engaging in nothing less than a peaceful ideological revolt against the left-and we’re meeting with some success.

These are all encouraging signs.  However, we must realize one thing:  enlisting in this “army” is a lifetime commitment.  This isn’t like WWI, or WWII.  There will be no definitive capitulation.  There will be no surrender ceremony, after which we get go home to the old status quo.  Our adversaries will never give up.  They may be defeated, or delayed, but they will go to ground; hiding within the bureaucracies, universities, and other institutions.  They will continue to indoctrinate youth.  They will continue to spin lies and propaganda.  They will continue to divide and exploit by race, economics, gender, or religion.  They will take their failed policies, and come up with clever knew names for the same failed ideas.  And, when they see the opportunity, they will strike out at freedom via regulation, legislation, and legal decisions.  Failing that, they will resort to thuggery and violence.

We might win again in 2014 and even 2016.  Even if we are more successful than our wildest dreams, we will still be needed.  The candidates that we support will need our help, and our guidance, should they stray.  We will need to take to the streets when needed.  We will need to counter the left’s propaganda, as well as discuss the news and ideas that the MSM refuses to cover.

The lies of the left wither in the daylight of the truth.  Let’s shine that light.

I was sorely tempted to quit blogging after the election.  I had to remind myself of what I had written.  Barak Obama is the result of DECADES of effort from everyone from pointy headed academics to dirty, unwashed hippies.  They kept their eye on the prize, now we must as well.  It does help that we have reality on our side, but with so many people now being educated to ignore reality, we have our work cut out for us.  Yes, they had their  Long March Through the Institutions, but I don’t know that we can do it in reverse.  That is where I depart from Mr. McCain.  I think the key to victory is presenting so much truth to the American people that we replicate the fall of the USSR.  The USSR had all sorts of mechanisms by which to punish dissent, but when the people ceased taking the state seriously, it fell apart.  Think of it as this…

What if the government had a tyranny party, and no one showed up? 

What if the schools taught nonsense, and the children just laughed it off?  What if the unions send goons, and a mob to them to F**K OFF!?   What happens to the nanny state when the people stop believing in it?  What happens when it is common knowledge that live babies are routinely killed in abortion clinics, and that Planned Parenthood IS carrying out Sanger’s directive to “exterminate the black race?”    What happens when more and more whistle blowers decided that the truth is worth the risk, and start telling us about even more government abuses?   I don’t know if we need to reverse the Long March, but I do know that we can cause people to know that the leftist/statist system is the joke that it is.

And that might just be enough.

Pravda Knows Where We Are Going, Why Don’t We?

I find it a cruel , yet hilarious irony that Pravda, the former propaganda media outlet in the also former Soviet Union, finds it tragic that we are going down the road traveled by the Bolsheviks.  Steve, from Motor City Times, has more…

Via Pravda (yes, that Pravda):

Reading Putin’s speech without knowing the author, one would think it was written by Reagan or another conservative in America. The speech promotes smaller government and less taxes. It comes as no surprise to those who know Putin as a conservative. Vladimir Putin went on to say:

“…we are reducing taxes on production, investing money in the economy. We are optimizing state expenses.

The second possible mistake would be excessive interference into the economic life of the country and the absolute faith into the all-mightiness of the state.

There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.

Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation of the national debt – are as destructive as an adventurous stock market game.

During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself.”

And, here’s a little more…

The Pravda author adds a little food for thought.

Russia lost its’ civil war with the Reds and millions suffered torture and death for almost 75 years under the tyranny of the United Soviet Socialist Republic. Russians survived with a new and stronger faith in God and ever growing Christian Church. The question is how long will the once “Land of the Free” remain the United Socialist States of America?  Their suffering has only begun.

I think he might be on to something.

On to something indeed.  I do agree with Steve (in his post) in that Putin is hardly a good guy, and that he is likely using appealing words to hide statist policies, kinda like the establishment GOP.  However, the irony is just as tragic.  The former Soviet Union is moving towards at least  a RINO nanny state, and we are headed for the cradle to grave oppression of the socialist state.

Elections have consequences.

Just in Case you Needed yet Another Reason to Dislike Gingrich: Number 2112

The standard Newt narrative is that he was for the individual mandate in the 90’s, as an alternative to Hillary Care.  Then, he was against it.  Apparently, that “now” has only emerged over the last three years-more than likely after he wet his finger to see which way the wind was blowing.  Here is the proof, from BuzzFeed, via the Daily Caller

Sorry, Newt supporters, the man is a RINO, big government, progressive, and statist-pure and simple.  Like so many others, he’ll tell us what we want to hear, and then govern against our wishes, as well as our freedoms.

Uh-Oh, Nancy Pelosi is on to us!

Share

Nancy Pelosi has apparently stumbled upon the plans of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy…

You mean, we want to reduce the Federal Government to it’s Constitutional limits? Do we want to get rid of job killing regulations-that were written purely to do just that?  Do we want to end the unconstitutional involvement of the government in  public education-that has decreased the quality of said education?  Do we want to tear out the statist control mechanisms?

Of course, she engages in the typical leftist fear mongering, but what the statists of all stripes really fear is losing power.  So, to FORMER Speaker Pelosi, I can only say…

You bet your botox Nancy!
