Blogpost Number 779

"Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."
~ Dylan Thomas

I used to think my blog had relevance. I used to think it was important.

And, I wanted to make a difference.

Before the 2008 Presidential election. I wrote several blog entries warning readers of the negative implications of voting for Barack Hussein Obama for President. I pleaded with readers not to vote for Obama because he is a Marxist, and would ultimately lead America to destruction. I made my case as strong as I could.

Obviously, I failed.

And, what lone voice crying out in the wilderness wouldn't? Stronger voices than mine have met with the same unfortunate results.

I'm not the only one who attempted, unsuccessfully, to influence America's vote.

So did Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham, and Ann Coulter, and Mark Levin. So did thousands of editorial and opinion writers. So did thousands, perhaps millions, of bloggers.

Few listened. Obama won, anyway.

Out of millions of blog posts, and articles, and talk radio shows, some people have changed their minds about politics. But not many.

I don't think I have changed any minds with my blog posts.

And now, everything we bloggers and radio hosts and editorialists have predicted is coming to fruition.

Obama has proven to be every bit of the pathological narcissist we said he is. He is every bit the Marxist. The Socialist. Whatever.

His takeover of banking institutions, automobile manufacturers, Insurance companies, etc, along with his ongoing efforts to insert his government into all phases of private industry (especially health care), and indeed, even private citizenry is evidence of the man's oft predicted intentions.

If our warnings continue unheeded, by 2012, Obama may very well be the dictator of a nation no longer considered a Constitutional Republic.

We are watching the Socialization of America take place right before our eyes. And still there are so many who see these predictions coming true and deny it's happening.

It defies logic.

What can be done?

Most Rev. Gregori, in a comment on one of my previous posts, said, "Just using blogs, faxes, emails, tea parties, demonstrations, and marches are not going to do it. It will take real action."

I beg to respectfully disagree.

The fact is, tea parties, demonstrations and marches are real action. That was proven during the years we were engaged in Vietnam. Do you realize America never lost a single battle during that campaign? How did we lose that war? Or, for those who don't believe we lost, how did that war end in a tie?

It was the voices raised by the vocal minority. It was the marches. It was the demonstrations. It was the outcry of dissent.

It made a very real difference.

The Government, from the President on down, acquiesced to the growing dissent and eventually withdrew American troops from a war we were winning.

So, our protests may seem to fall upon deaf ears, but we must not surrender. We must not rest. Although the sails are torn and the ship battered, we must do what we can to keep the ship of state afloat. Eventually, if we roar loud enough, we will prevail.

Ok. So my blog is irrelevant. I am unimportant. I don't make a difference.

It matters not. I will continue to voice my opinion, even if it's unpopular. Even if I am the only one who voices a particular opinion. Even if all who reads this opposes me. Though targeted by slings and arrows, I will stand my ground. I will keep my integrity.

I will not surrender.

Well you better keep the posts comming. It's part of my morning ritural. I get to work, pour myself some coffee, sit at my desk, stare at the ceiling for about 5 seconds, fire up the computer and check your blog.

I will die trying to prevent this from happening. Yes I am talking about civil insurrection if it ever came to this. And this is no Iran. American protesters/revolutionaries would have the means and wherewithal to shoot back.

The coming socialist nation and the growing dissent are the real reasons he wants to have the names, address, and fingerprints of EVERYONE who has a gun. He's going to take them away. He doesn't want the people armed.

He doesn't seem to concerned about Tehran, but he better start concerning himself with what's going on in his own country.

It's coming!

Krystal, I'd rather Mr. Obama stay ignorant of any growing revolt. I don't want him to be prepared.

I wouldn't be so sure about that.

Maybe I'm guilty of wishful thinking.

Recently, however, I got this in a note from a parent; the student reads my web site, maybe yours too, for all I know.

My students, groups of homeschoolers, are few in number. But I do feel that I'm touching the future -- just a bit.

Mark said...

Thank you so much, Edwin. I appreciate the kindness.

But... perhaps you need a hobby.

Mark said...

AOW. I'm sure it was your influence that changed your students mind. You are nice. I am too mean.

Mark, that is exactly what I meant when I said: "Just using blogs, faxes, emails, tea parties, demonstrations, and marches are not going to do it. It will take real action."

Krystal; you said: "The coming socialist nation and the growing dissent are the real reasons he wants to have the names, address, and fingerprints of EVERYONE who has a gun. He's going to take them away. He doesn't want the people armed."

Those actions are blatantly unconstitutional, and if he goes ahead with it, then We the People had better rise up and DEMAND his immediate impeachment and removal from office on the grounds of "high crimes" (violating the the Constitution, his oath of office and our constitutional rights).

Mark, I will continue to fight the fight for as long as I draw breath, and if that fight means stepping away from the keyboard and taking up a gun, then so be it.

Mark said...

Bishop, I have been calling for his impeachment since he started meddling in private enterprise.

But this only helps me make the point I made in this post:

My posts fall on deaf ears. My thoughts make no difference.

Nevertheless, I will not stop speaking out against injustice and tyranny.

Mark: I respectfully disagree. You don’t know how many read your blog that may not leave comments. I have days when I don’t know what to write and I question if my voice is heard or if I’m even writing anything of any value. Those are the days that I dig deep for faith. We need it now more than ever. Keep up the good word, Mark, we need you.
