Where the Republic Stands…

This post came as a result of discussion of whether or not Rick Santorum could get the GOP behind him and take the nomination.  I submit that this is where the GOP and Conservatives stand at this moment.  And this is what needs to happen.  :

(The heavy cavalry of the Obama army appear over the hill and every Republican

becomes scared.)

Young soldier: I didn’t come here to fight so they can own more lands;
then I have to work for them.

Veteran soldier: Nor me.  Alright lads.  I’m not dying for these bastards!
Lets go home.

(The two Republicans turn and start to leave the field and several others

join them.)

GOP Establishment: (In desperation)  Stop men.  Do not flee.  Wait until

we’ve negotiated.

(William and his men into the scene. William’s face is painted solid

blue except for a sharp wedge of bare flesh pointing down over his

left eye.)

Young soldier: William Wallace?

Veteran soldier: Can’t be.  Not tall enough.

(William and his men ride up to the nobles.)

Stephen: The Almighty says this must be a fashionable fight.  It’s
drawn the finest people.

GOP Establishment (To William): Where is thy salute?

William: For presenting yourselves on this battlefield, I give you
thanks.

GOP Establishment: This is our army.  To join it you give homage.

William: I give homage to America.  And if this is your army, why does
it go?

Veteran soldier: We didn’t come here to fight for them.

Young soldier: Home.  The Obamites are too many.

William: Sons of America, I am William Wallace.

Young soldier: William Wallace is 7 feet tall.

William: Yes, I’ve heard.  He kills men by the hundreds, and if he were
here he’d consume the Democrats with fireballs from his eyes and bolts
of lightning from his arse.  I am William Wallace, and I see a whole

army of my countrymen here in defiance of tyranny.  You have come

to fight as free men, and free men you are.  What will you do with
that freedom? Will you fight?

Veteran soldier: Fight against that? No, we will run, and we will live.

William: Aye, fight and you may die, run and you’ll live.  At least a while.
And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to
trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one
chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take
our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom?!  God Bless America!

(The Republicans cheer “God Bless America” repeatedly)

And now, my comments…

 

Young soldier: I didn’t come here to fight so they can own more lands;
then I have to work for them.

Veteran soldier: Nor me.  Alright lads.  I’m not dying for these bastards!
Lets go home.

I view this as analogous to the Conservatives in the GOP.  They didn’t come to have the deficit continue to spiral out of control and for the government to encroach every aspect of their lives.  Republican Tyranny is no better than Democrat Tyranny.

GOP Establishment: (In desperation)  Stop men.  Do not flee.  Wait until

we’ve negotiated.

I don’t know that this needs any comment.  Not even the French run up the white flag as fast as the Republican Establishment.

 

GOP Establishment: This is our army.  To join it you give homage.

You stupid little Tea Partiers have had your fun.  Now get in line behind our guy!

William: I give homage to America.  And if this is your army, why does
it go?

Veteran soldier: We didn’t come here to fight for them.

Young soldier: Home.  The Obamites are too many.

If the Republican Establishment may control the GOP, but the rank and file are ready to march off.

 

The Conservatives in this country are desperate for leadership.  Somebody who really believes that our Republic is worth preserving and that the Founding Fathers got it right with the Constitution.  After 4 years of Barack Obama the government has grown, and it encroaches us in more aspects of our life than ever.  When Obamacare really takes affect, we will truly belong to the government.  Our freedom will be over.  Anything can be justified.

Is there anybody willing to stand up and say, “No More!”?

Nobody wants to utter the words because the left will call it violent rhetoric.  But somebody needs to get up on a stage and tell them:

YOU CAN TAKE MY LIFE, BUT YOU CAN NEVER TAKE MY FREEDOM.
