I good friend of mine alerted me that his relationship with his liberal girlfriend has ended because of his inability to surrender to Obamamania.

I have supported Obama because in the primaries I believed he was our best chance to knock the Clintons out of our national discussion. I also believed that Obama was wrong but not a crook. Now, unfortunately, I believe that his policies and influences are soooo left that it might be better if he were more moderate and a crook. I think I could accept that better. A crook has interests and that is something you can work with but a Marxist zealot, on the other hand, has a by any means necessary attitude and is much harder to deal with.

In my teen years I had the epiphany where I finally understood the democrat opposition to guns and their gun control creeping toward confiscation. It has zero to do with gun violence and all the stated reasons. The real reason private gun ownership must be ended is that firearms provide a tool for the population to resist the state. Stormtroopers are rendered largely ineffective by your Granddad’s 30-06 deer rifle. This fact all became very clear to me when I read :

And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst; the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!"

No matter how oppressive the supporters of NoBama are …as long as the American people have the power to resist things in this country are unlikely to change rapidly but the slow trod to socialism will under an Obama controlled state become a gallop. If Obama wins and it is a catastrophe we do have the chance to remedy the congress in two years and then to throw the Barak out in two after that. As long as we are a nation of laws and a constitutional republic I think we are safe but like looking at health of salamanders and invertebrates to evaluate an ecosystem I will be watching my own set of societal indicators to determine what I lost and what must be regained.

As they say in Chicago… Vote early and often.  In my state of South Carolina I think I can vote my conscience but if you are in a swing sate or where there is contest you probably need to hold your nose and vote McPalin.  I hate to fall from principle but there is some importance to expediency this year.  “Don’t Tread On Me” and God Save Our Republic
