Victor Davis Hanson is a martial historian you must be familiar with. He gave a presentation in New England.
An astute member of the audience asked him “what was the real cause of The Civil War?” He adroitly answered:
All the compromises that could be made, WERE made.
Liberals and Conservatives must realize our government no longer governs. The Fiscal Cliff debacle proves so. When america reaches (what I call) Hanson’s Razor, it is time for war. It is proven so. It was, proven so.
Both of us face a world where Elites are the one true enemy.
This post is expanded from a comment I made at John Cashon’s Musings.
It is unwise for “little people” conservatives to follow Sean Hannity in cheerleading tax breaks for the rich…just as it is unwise for Liberals to cheer Chris Matthews‘ reactionary screeds on banning guns. The Elite Government that ensues will equally trample both their rights. Hannity & Matthews live in $2,000,000 Manhattan penthouses so tax breaks are great for them – and guns don’t bother them, nor their armed bodyguards.
Rachael Maddow demands your guns because she lives in her fabulous penthouse in Playground Manhattan, safe from crime. O’Reilly protects “the job creator class” because he weekends as a pampered guest (as one of them) in their 79,000 sq.ft. Martha’s Vineyard estates.
In Future America, you’ll have a gunless population working for Mark Zuckerberg 2.0 – this is The Elite Model.
Guns have a prescribed use:
- Fight government tyranny
Drugs have a prescribed use to help mankind deal with threatening issues.
- Heart disease
We, live in the real world. Until we start to govern it, we will be beholden to aristocratic powers we let grow into royalty.
I urge you to explore my vision of Future America on Eradica and comment. I do not censor comments. Perhaps you will gain a larger audience for your own site.
