Our theocracy nightmare: President Palinís martial law (Here's their real fear - she's effective)
Salon ^ | June 29, 2013 | Frederic C. Rich

What if McCain/Palin won, then McCain died -- and a terror attack followed. Apocalyptic fiction from a nightmare

It is obvious in retrospect that only an external attack like that on 7/22 could have saved the Palin presidency. Without it, would any of what followed have happened? I doubt it. The Democrats would have recaptured both the White House and Senate that fall. The culture wars would have simmered on, but the evangelical movement’s momentum on the path toward political power would have been lost. I would be installed in my corner office downtown, practicing law. I would probably have children with Emilie. I might be having dinner with Sanjay tonight instead of sitting here with people I really don’t know, trying to remember and record all that happened since then.

But 7/22 did happen. It was truly horrible, and the American people were understandably scared and angry. 7/22 opened a door, and Sarah Palin walked through it.

On July 24, 2012, President Palin, for only the second time in the history of the republic, declared martial law over the entire country. Instead of appearing alone in a televised address from the formality of the Oval Office, she addressed the nation from the situation room in the basement of the White House flanked by all the Joint Chiefs of staff, with Vice President Sam Brownback and top consultant Steve Jordan the only civilians present. Her speech was direct and forceful. After 9/11, she said, our enemies had counted on our weaknesses. They knew of our preoccupation with rights, laws, and political correctness of every sort.....

I must've been sleeping and missed all that tyranny.

I was having a nightmare where a Marxist president used executive orders to bypass the legislative branch, denounced the rulings of the Supreme Court when he violated the Constitution, used the IRS the engage in a partisan witchhunt of the Tea Party during the 2010-2012 election season, ran communication profiles on average citizens (not those suspected of being in communications with known members of Al Qaeda as was the policy under GW Bush)...

The best defense of this administration seems to be go on the attack against the pair that didn't win in 2008.

Same technique used by the Party in “1984” to drum up the “two minutes hate” of the Emmanuel Goldstein character. The “fundies” are the Alinskyite strawmen.

Religious belief, walking the walk, making hard decisions for the right choices, right/wrong, taking a stand, and patriotism requires strong moral character. It’s a mirror being held up before them. They don’t like what they see. Solution: attack the “fundies” and break that mirror.

Well, Frederic, when I fantasize about Sarah Palin it has nothing to do with martial law. OK, maybe handcuffs sometimes, but not martial law......

What if Obama WAS an American citizen but his real father was secretly a Marxist pornographer friend of his grandfather who seduced his friend’s teenage daughter and got her pregnant? What if this pedophile Marxist became the future president’s mentor when he was a boy?

Frederic C Rich. Remember your psychology classes? This is called projection. Here is a refresher on History. When tyranny comes, 9 times out of 10, it is from the left side not the right. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Screw them - brain disorder. They are the theocracy of no fun atheistic religious tyranny. Amazing how they are blind to it.
Everyone must collectively parrot the same BS or they throw a conniption fit eventually desiring the genocide of their detractors as if that will give them some relief.

Fthem - I have no tolerance any longer - In America - Being loving and tolerant to these deluded fools or malevolent parasitic people just isn’t gonna work. They need to be ridiculed and shamed. Americans at least need to go down fighting.

Read the first chapter of Soltzenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago.
It is entitled “Arrest”
It’s very informative because it depicts the mindset of modern Americans. You hone might believe the laws and people in positions of authority are going to see things your way. You will get justice. Only thing is if you knew you would spend the next 10 years doing hard labor for merely existing in the wrong time and place you would yell out when they grab you. You would make a huge stink and you’ll have plenty of time to ruminate when it is too late.

This crap isn’t so far off base from the lefts current perspective. Just the other day a leftwingtard informed me that she is being told that the Christian ranchers in the area are claiming God has told them to shoot people for being on the river in order to have their cattle herds do well. The idiot believes it!

Salon is all wee wee'd up, and why wouldn't they be? My guess is they are looking around at the heaving scandal ridden wreck called Obamaland and know that their heir apparent Hillary is mortally wounded from a self inflicted Benghazi. Their enablers, the GOP, are in the process of committing seppuku that leaves the door wide open for the Tea Party and, of course Sarah Palin.

Things must be pretty panicky over there at queer nation. Looks like they are busy training kamikazes.

She has held many political offices including Governor, she has endorsed and participated in well over a 100 campaigns, and what we have seen is someone who is unflappable, always in control, and of great, good judgement.

Her endorsements always make sense and are not based on pure ideology or radical passionate outbursts, but in calm assessments made to fit each individual race, and made by a lifelong republican.

It is other politicians that appear lacking in judgement and consistency, and good decision making when compared to Governor Palin.

Politicians like McCain, Romney, Obama, Hillary Clinton and most others, seem to be more hit and miss and mistake ridden when compared to Governor Palin, Palin has good judgement, and is well centered, she knows herself, and her world view, and her politics, and she makes reasoned, effective decisions.

The frightening thing is that liberals are so psychologically unreflective, that they don’t know that their own fears of conservative totalitarianism are actually projections of what they themselves would do.

The issue is the establishment got scared shiftless when they saw that someone with a true and proven records of cleaning up corruption (Palin in Alaska as governor). They they saw their own corrupt days in jeopardy when she got into a position where she wasn’t just cleaning up corruption in some “po dunk state” and all the insiders pooped a collective brick and that is when everyone that supports corruption went heavily negative on Palin!!!
