Today's patriots are counter-revolutionaries

Exclusive: Patrice Lewis says New Media saved America from progressive demise

It may come as a surprise to many people, but America is in the midst of a revolution.

It’s not the revolution you might think. Patriots are not fighting enemies in the street. The Minutemen are not assembling in the green, ready to defend against redcoats.

No, it isn’t the patriots who are fighting a revolution. It’s the progressives who have been fomenting the revolt. And, until recently, they were winning.

Quite simply, they are fighting a revolution against the Constitution.

Think about it. The progressives object to just about everything in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Small government, strong gun rights, individual freedom, states’ rights, no unwarranted search or seizure, no quartering law enforcement officers in one’s private home … all these constitutionally guaranteed rights have been under fire by people who don’t like and don’t want the liberties set forth in the founding documents.

So, many decades ago, they decided to slowly but inexorably disassemble our nation’s foundation.

This revolution went unchallenged because it was so gradual as to be almost unnoticed. Old people who knew the real history of America’s beginnings died off, and young people were never educated about their birthright. The progressive media cherry-picked or created news stories to show the “evils” of free-market capitalism and individual liberty, and the despicable nature of moral constraint. This constant erosion of decency bore fruit.

Smugly, the progressives didn’t think anything could

I’ve made this same point, we are counter revolutionaries. Surviving Civil War II.

Some day Restoration Day will be celebrated just as Independence Day.

You heard it here first.

I am far from optimistic about our country’s future.

A nation stupid enough to elect Obama, twice, is a nation stupid enough to go quietly into an Orwellian nightmare. I fear the mass of stupidity now ruling our elections will only wake up once they start going hungry every night and waking hungry every day, and by then, it will be too late to restore anything, Liberty is hard to come by and is easily lost. Too many are too ignorant of man’s history. I pray my opinion is wrong.

From Patrice's article:

The war hasn’t been won. The Internet as we know it may not last. A year ago, President Obama “quietly signed his name to an Executive Order … allowing the White House to control all private communications in the country in the name of national security.” The progressive revolutionaries still have the upper hand.

Note the phrase "national security." This has become a euphemism for "government security," that is, ensuring that the government survives. The national security, in the form of citizen's security, is a tertiary concern, at best.
