Civil War or Revolution?

At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized … it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds.“- President Barack Obama, January 13, 2011

President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these sons of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong!” – Labor Leader Jimmy Hoffa, September 5, 2011

The unthinkable is upon us. When representatives of government condemn and demonize peaceful, grassroots citizen protest in this country; then the red flag of fearful rage needs to fly on high alert in the heart of every true American! Weeks after this President’s January lecture on civility, the Capitol of Wisconsin and the 8 Republicans who stood up for the tax-paying citizens of their state came under a fierce assault of vandalism and death threats from “Obama’s Army!”

When we as Americans turn against each other, we turn towards Civil War. But when our government turns against us, we are on the doorstep of Revolution! Americans, for the first time in their history, do not have a President of their United States! We have a President of the United Thugs of Organized Labor! This has been clear from day one of the most destructively inept and divisive administration in our nation’s history. There is no more diversified lobby; and no greater voice for the American Tax Payer than the Tea Party! So when the Congressional Black Caucus, Barney Frank, John Kerry, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Reverend Al and Obama’s Union Buddies all declare war on the Tea Party…they are, in fact, declaring war on the citizens of America!

What comes next? What comes next will be the greatest test of wills we have ever faced as a nation. What comes next will be pure Chicago-style, deep-dish fear and intimidation straight from the Alinsky hand book! And guess what! They know that there is no justice in Holder’s DOJ for me and you! They know they can act with impunity…for the Workers of America! Workers of America…Ha! They should call them the Thieves of America, because that’s exactly what they are. Hell, they stole our auto industry! They stole the education of our children! And we’re the idiots who have paid them to take these things from us for all these years!!

So Mr. & Mrs. America, as Malone said to Ness in The Untouchables, “What are you prepared to do?” Because I’ll tell you exactly what they are betting you will do. They are betting everything that you and I are as corrupt and spineless in our souls as every politician and business leader they have already bought and paid for; and clergy member they have already co-opted! And if you aren’t a member of that sorry lot, then they’re counting on you to keep your head down and mind your own business. And, if they’re right about you…then they win!

Well, I don’t know about you…but I am perfectly willing to take a lump or two for my kids. And besides, I was never much good at keeping my head down. The air is much cleaner and pleasingly fragrant when you stand up straight. And I will tell you that when you know in your heart you’re in the right, God will always have your back! I once stepped in between a bully and his victim without giving it so much as a sliver of a thought (even though he was bigger and meaner than myself)…because it was the right thing to do. I was shocked to see him back down as quickly as he did…until I turned around to notice several of my friends glaring at the guy over my shoulders. Step with courage and you can never lose what’s important!

The eyes of history have 20/20 vision my friends! I beg you not to let her catch you with your head down…or worse. There is no deal with the devil. Compromise is for parties of commerce and domestic transaction. There can be no compromise with the enemies of our American soul! Make no mistake; Hoffa’s Workers of America are the Takers of America! Not only do their demands violate the boundaries of reason; but they talk like Yankee Doodle…and walk like Karl Marx! Show me our worst failures as a society, and I’ll show you a union!

Tonight, the Prince of Thieves has called for a Joint Session of Congress. These occasions are traditionally reserved for State of the Union Speeches, Declarations of War and things of that magnitude. We have been inspired to new heights of strength, greatness and exceptionalism on more than one of these occasions in our past. But the past Presidents who lifted us to these places did so on the wings of leadership, moral courage and example. And they spoke as one of us…to us as one!

Not tonight folks. He has not come to inspire…he comes to lecture. He has not come to give…he comes to take. He has not come to unite…he comes to divide. He has not come to lift America…he is here to bury her!
