Skip to comments.The Democracy Initiative: a Coup in Plain Sight
Posted on 01/20/2013 7:17:31 AM PST by Mrs. Don-o
This is...about a coordinated effort by about 36 different interest groups with reported revenues of no less than $1.69 billion, pledging millions of dollars to work together to attack conservative supporters and organizations, to intervene directly in Democratic politics, to push for filibuster reform to better enable a push through their agenda without any input from the opposition, and expanding "voting rights" and fighting voter registration laws to further grease the skids for their legislative agenda.
1. Who belongs: Here are a few of them:
...the AFL-CIO, the Center for American Progress, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, Common Cause, the Friends of the Earth, the League of Conservation Voters, Mother Jones, the National Wildlife Federation, People for the American Way, the Piper Fund, Public Campaign, the SEIU, and Voto Latino. "There will be 50 participating organizations by spring."
How much money will they throw into their effort? The combined budgets of progressive interest groups and foundations and think tanks and nonprofits and community organizations is practically incalculable.
[They pro-actively take control of the language.]
"Equality" today means equality of outcome, or egalitarianism and homogeneity. "Tolerance" today means how dare you give offense -- and your "hate speech" must be controlled. "Fair share" today means an immensely disproportionate amount is paid by those scapegoated by the left and given over to the left's cronies, with some crumbs going to the poor, who become more and more entrenched in their dependence on the state, and more and more permanent clients to the state's war on the free market.
As certain linguistic kernel assumptions were adopted, entrenched, and finally institutionalized -- by all political stripes ("Yay, democracy! Go us!") -- the effects ae... preordained: collectivism, consensus, mob rule, all dressed up in the finery of studied, rigorous legal interpretation...

The whole article is much, much better than this excerpt. Go back and check it out. A long read, but an essential one.
Absolutely spot on, and well worth the time to read.
We are in a war, no two ways about it. Bipartisanship is dead, the left has no use for us (except to pay the bills).
Unless we fight back, now, and hard, we face a bleak future of servitude.
The GOP needs to wake up and recognize that the democrats are plotting their political extermination and subsequent totalitarian governance.
This is scary but we have to recognize that the current situation represents the end game in a century long effort to deconstruct the form of government the founders gave us - our constitutional republic.
The whole point of the constitution is to preserve individual liberty by limiting the scope of government. Almost no Americans today understand that the federal government has no legitimate authority outside of the areas designated to it by the constitution - the “enumerated powers.”
The whole purpose of the progressive agenda is to end all meaningful constitutional limits on government power. In fact, as interpreted by liberals the meaning of “progressive” is “progressing past the outdated and now absurd constitution.”
We need to recognize that we are down to the point of no return in the fight to preserve liberty. If we loose the next couple of years it will be lost for generations, probably forever.
If this is a coup in plain sight, than what would calling for a Constitutional Convention be?
The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat.

That sums it up.
And it’s also no accident that the favorite “religion” of these people is Islam, which is a theocratic religion that would give the government all power over every aspect of the individual’s life. It was, after all, designed by its founder to reinforce and solidify his secular conquests of neighboring people by taking over every aspect of their lives and making secular law into religious law and vice versa.
That’s the secret behind the attack on the Church: as always, it is the only thing that confronts the State and preserves the sphere of the individual conscience, and therefore it is the only stumbling block for complete government takeover.
The Founders thought they were writing these protections into the Constitution, and it did indeed work for many years. But in a sense, it only worked as long as people had an outside source of morality and ethics and individual identity (which the Founders had assumed they would). Over the last 100 years (particularly accelerated from the 1960s on) we have seen the utilitarian “morality” of the state steadily replacing everything else, and it has been very easy for the enemies of the Constitution to pick off parts of it one at a time.
But now we’re facing an unabashed, full-frontal assault on it and the principles behind it, and they’re not even pretending their objective is anything other than getting rid of this “outdated document” and setting up the Moloch of government in its place.
“Progressives play to win, conservatives not so much. Makes you wonder if the GOPe are not co-conspirators with the Rats.”
“It’s starting to look more and more like the GOP is just

Obomas stimulus package will go a long way. He stole enough from the American taxpayer to cover it all.
This is why no one knows where the money went. He needed it to pay for his own private army - today, they're better funded and better armed than the American military.
(I don't all think those Fast and Furious weapons went to Mexico, because the Mexican government isn't getting involved in the scandal at all. Add to that the ammo he's been shipping around the country...for some reason....)
Remember - the democrats have run out of other peoples money. If we weren't printing monopoly money as fast a speeding bullets right now, our economy wouldn't exist. Their printing of fake money can't go on forever. (Other nations are starting to notice our cash being watered down at a record pace, and they want their gold sent back to their own countries.)
Politically and financially, yes. Physically, no. If even one person on the right acts out, Oboma will take full advantage of the wonderful crises he's been handed.
So far, all the shooters are registered democrats, or their parents are democrats or activists. No one on the left could blame their actions on us or our beliefs - which is why only guns are being discussed. The shooters themselves don't exist, because if we talked about them, the "democrat" truth would get out to the general public.
You know if a TEA party member accidentally hit someone in the head with their elbow, the TEA party would be severely attacked for it 24/7. The MSM would be demanding the violent behavior be stopped! They'd completely ignore the weapon, the accidental elbow.
Call me an optimist,BUT....
I believe in gut instinct. I believe the veil will be lifted on these leftists. I think there's going to be an awaking. Something is going to happen, and the left will finally be exposed for what it is.
Yeah, yeah, we keep hoping for this and it never happens, but this time seems different.
I have no idea what's going to happen, but, ironically, I think it will have more to do with the young people than the old. Even though they've never been taught history, and they've all been indoctrinated into socialism, I think they're going to notice the socialism/communism is not the best thing for them. I think they're going to want what their parents had. They're going to crave "the good old days" of their childhood. They won't be happy living with the lefts perpetual diet of butter flavored lard and stale bread forever. They're going to want to live.
I think people are getting frustrated. Oboma is not only taking away freedoms, he's taking away comforts, too. Socialism/communism can't and will never be able to afford to provide them with what they had before Oboma and his demonic army took it all away from them.
All communists/progressives must Hang!
