Our “Great Ruler” & The Rising Fever of Despotism

Must View or Read: Rep. Ted Poe’s list of grievances against our “Great Ruler.”

Next, remember this:

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

Then Read: American Thinker article that says everything I believe about the importance of our upcoming election.

The Rising Fever of Despotism.

The time is now, and right now the Ballot Box is our battleground. American Patriots, and American Statesmen: Will we allow the Light of Liberty to be extinguished from our Land, or will we do our best, each and every one of us, to nourish the flame of Freedom once more?

Rush Limbaugh: A bigoted hatemonger (& Horowitz’ “Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model”

An example of a liberal who originally had a harsh opinion of Rush Limbaugh due to Alinsky-style tactics but changed his mind when he actually began listening to him. His name is William Raspberry. As writer Jeff Jacoby explains:

Rush Limbaugh: A bigoted hatemonger. So thought William Raspberry, a former African-American columnist for The Washington Post. In 1993, Raspberry wrote a piece blasting Limbaugh for his “demagoguery … his gay bashing, his racial putdowns”. Like the Mississippi segregationists of his youth, Raspberry wrote that Limbaugh “is so good at … tossing the raw meat of bigotry to people … Rush Limbaugh is a bigot.”

Reason Debate: Where Do Libertarians Belong?

Brink Lindsey, Jonah Goldberg & Matt Kibbe from the August-September 2010 issue

Interesting read. Read through to the end. Matt Kibbe’s insights into the Tea Party are worth the time, as Jonah Goldberg’s thoughts are as well.

In this exchange, [Reason] Contributing Editor Brink Lindsey argues that it’s time, once and for all, to sever the libertarian-conservative alliance that dates back to the New Deal while remaining skeptical about the illiberal populism of Tea Party activism.

In response, a conservative writer—National Review Online Editor-at-Large Jonah Goldberg—disputes Lindsey’s portrayal of the right and contends that the only major party giving free market economics the time of day is the GOP.

Meanwhile, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe tells Lindsey and his think tank fellow travelers to climb down off that high horse and celebrate the most promising limited-government popular uprising in generations.
