I certainly don’t want things to come to violence, but I’m convinced that phone calls, petitions, withheld campaign contributions, and abstained votes haven’t worked.
I, personally, am at a loss as to how to make the Democrats realize they’ve gone too far and how to make the Republicans realize that they need to stop playing a gentleman’s game. And I don’t see any prominent Republicans with viable solutions either.
Certainly taking back the majorities in the House and Senate in 2010 is absolutely necessary, but how is that going to reverse the damage that the Democrats have inflicted? How is it going to convince Republicans to man up? The only sure consequence of taking back the majority is that it will embolden the Democrats to employ even nastier tactics in 2012.
Actually, I think the spirit behind these [state sovereignty] resolutions may be the last, best hope for recovering a constitutional form of government short of all-out chaos.
My fear is that:
- elections maybe too compromised by outright fraud,
- the electorate has been too dumbed-down,
- the Executive branch has abandoned any pretense of respect for the rule of law,
- representation is lost due to "lifetime" Senators & Representatives whose main focus is perpetuating the lobbying/campaigning system, and
- a judaical system - dominated by Progressives - that would need a thousand lifetimes to trace the status quo back through stare decisis to a legitimate Constitutional foundation.
The last standing institution that may be capable of plowing the monster under is a united effort of a large number of sovereign state governments (all 3 branches) loudly proclaiming the Federal government has violated its contract with the States and is no longer legitimate. And we'd probably have better odds placing all our chips on 00 and spinning the wheel.
Does anyone else see a way back to the Constitution? Please tell me I've missed something.
