The Ground We Are Standing On Is Quicksand

The petitions on the White House website have now grown to include citizens from all 50 states, or 57 if Barack Obama is counting. Illinois citizens have even started two petitions to secede.

One thing to keep in mind, these petitions are created by individual citizens of the individual States, not the States (Governments) themselves.

While the petitions are worded in such away that asks Barack Obama “permission to withdraw from The United States peacefully”, it is obvious that “permission” would never be granted. It’s not that simple, even if it were possible in this particular forum. The reality is, the people of each state would have to vote on something such as secession.

However, actually receiving “permission to withdraw from The United States peacefully” is not the real intent of the petitions. The intent is to speak out against the tyranny that The United States Government has become. It is not about Barack Obama. It is about who America has become.

We are no longer One Nation Under God.
As a nation, we have gone against God and everything He stands for!

We are no longer Indivisible.
Barack Obama and his Administration have gone to great lengths to divide us even further than we were before.

We no longer have Liberty and Justice for All.
It’s more about

America has become something that is unrecognizable. She is no longer the country our Founding Fathers created.

While many Conservatives have already signed their name to their particular State’s petition, not all are in agreement with this course of action. Glenn Beck spoke out vehemently against the movement on his radio show, stating:

“Now how do you think that’s going to work out? I mean, how dumb do you have to be?  Really?  You’re putting your name on a list that goes directly to the White House, and you’re putting your name on a list and saying, ‘yeah I think we should secede, I think there should be a Civil War.’ Uh huh…[And] do you think that these people don’t forget who made a statement to them?  Are you out of your mind?”

The truth of the matter is, if you have voiced your opinion online at all, it is highly possible that you are being watched by the government. You don’t have to put your name on a petition. Any one of us who have opposed Barack Obama and his administration are on their list, make no mistake!

Later, on his TV program, continuing the discussion on secession, Glenn Beck said:

“This is exactly the kind of fuel the president will use to order measures to ‘protect’ the Republic.  And he’ll have the Department of Homeland Security at his disposal to enforce them. If the government begins arming itself against the citizens at the federal level, and say ‘by the way, we’re your new state police,’ that would indeed be the point in the course of human events where it becomes necessary to dissolve political bands.”

Glenn believes that “secession is not an option.”

In an article from The Blaze, covering this topic, the author said:

“…so it is up to you to contact your governor, find out what your kids are learning, and change the media.  Because the next step isn’t going to be easy.”

Our “leaders” have proven what a “fine job” they are doing! John Boehner has rolled over on Obamacare, proclaiming, “it’s the law of the land! The media continues to cover up, lie, and fawn all over Obama, gushing like little school girls! Fox News, the so-called “Fair and Balanced” network, is more concerned about being “fair” and letting the liberals spew their garbage than actually giving true Conservatives a voice.

There are others who are holding out hope for the 2014 and 2016 elections. With Obama’s record, a corpse could have won the election against him (not to be confused with a “corpsman”.  What makes anyone so sure that the next election will be any different?

We must “stand our ground!”, they say! Stand our ground…. like we did in this past election? With the Republican Party that we have, and  no real 3rd Party options (that are not CRAZIES!), it’s not sure footing that we are standing on, it is quicksand and we are sinking fast!

The problem is not Barack Obama. He is just a symptom of the problem. The American public is the problem.

 “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”   Alexis de Tocqueville

Mitt Romney was absolutely correct:

“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what.”

The fact of the matter is we are left with three options. Not any of these will be easy, but the time to do nothing has passed. What are our three options?

  1. Secession
  2. Calling an Article V Convention
  3. “Stand our ground”… and continue down the same self-destructive path we are on

In the event of an Article V Convention, the following amendments need to be added:

  1. Repeal the 16th and 17th Amendments.
  2. Balanced Budget Amendment.
  3. Term Limits for Congress.
  4. Elimination of the Federal Reserve system.

So if we do not call and Article V Convention, and we do not secede… we simply stand our ground. The ground we are standing on is quicksand! Barack Obama and his Administration are going to great lengths to destroy The Constitution.  We are no longer a free people. We are now enslaved with an ever increasing national debt, and we are headed off of fiscal cliff with no airbags! We are entangled in class warfare and entitlements that are only serving to equally enslaves us.

“Americans are so enamored of equality, they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.”  Alexis de Tocqueville

We are no longer the free nation our Founding Fathers created. We are being “bribed with our own money”. This nation cannot endure on this path. We no longer have ground to stand on. We are spiraling out of control! This election is obvious proof that we are standing on quicksand, and we are sinking fast! Something has to change. So we as Conservatives either stand on the quicksand, “united” as a “nation” with the Politicians (both Republican and Democrat!) who have put us in this position and refuse to make the necessary changes, or we look at the other two options mentioned previously.

“The American Republic will endure, until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money.”
― Alexis de Tocqueville

    “It can’t happen here”

    Imagine this scenario:

    Two watchman on the wall lookout across the horizon and see a massive army approaching. One grabs the trumpet and raises it to his lips to warn the people. The other says:

    “Now, wait a minute.

    If you blow that trumpet you are going to scare a lot of people. The people are asleep now.

    Would it not be better to let them sleep peacefully until this army is actually inside the city killing people, and setting the city on fire? The people are not ready to hear about this yet.

    This army has not killed anyone yet. Have they? What can the people do about that army anyway?

    I think it would be better if we just organize a study club to debate about the issues.

    Tell those people who just keep saying “It can’t happen here” to talk with an American Indian or a Japanese American. It has ALREADY happened here.

    All I can say is at least the people made it known that we are not going to stand for Barack Obama’s tyranny. He has skirted and violated the constitution since his 1st day in office. Since no one in this government is there to speak for and protect us Conservatives and those that love this great nation against the tyrant in office WE,THE PEOPLE, took a stand! And if Barack HUSSEIN Obama thinks he can get away with destroying this country he needs to think again because there are more of us that love it than not. Our forefathers warned us about tyrants like Obama and gave us explicit instruction on what our government can and cannot do. The people are not the problem here, the government is.
