Defend the Guard, Resist the Empire

It is very easy to get sick and tired of American foreign policy these days.

Since 9/11, America has been drawn into a countless number of foreign wars with nothing to show for it other than disastrous results. Troop suicides stand at an all-time high, the economy is in the tank, the Middle East is completely on fire with Islamic radicalism running wild, and our precious freedoms are being eroded because of it. This is a truly dire situation that shows no signs of slowing down.

In lieu of what is going on, the question we must ask ourselves is: how do we stop this? We’ve seen large scale demonstrations and mass protests to end some of these wars, and it has not done anything to change the path America is going down. The federal government is so corrupt that they refuse to listen to the will of the people. These unfortunate circumstances make it clear that we need to move at the state level, as Thomas Jefferson suggested, through nullification.

Things That Are Stronger Than an Elephant

For about two weeks, the focus of much of the media’s attention has been the partial shutdown of the federal government.  If one needs to rehash how the shutdown came about or is unfamiliar with names such as Cruz, Reid, Boehner or Obama and how they all played a role, one likely won’t care to learn about it now as the shutdown comes to a close.  Much of the Republican establishment has caved, fully funding not only ObamaCare, but continued drone wars overseas and domestic spying.  Our regularly scheduled tyranny resumes.  We have learned, in fact, that in the slowing of the encroachment of government upon more and more of our lives, there are things a great deal stronger than the Republicans’ resolve.

90 year old veterans

When barricades were erected to block World War II veterans’ access to open air memorials, the generation that pierced the Siegfried Line of Nazi Germany had no issue with breaking through the “Barry-cades” that were supposed to impede their attempts at remembering their departed brethren.  People then carried the remains of the Obama Wall to the White House.

A bison

While the Democrats have the donkey, and the Republicans have the elephant, may I humbly suggest the bison as the symbol of the Tenther movement.  Nearly hunted to extinction, just like our precious liberties, they have been making a gradual comeback over the last few decades.  This particular bison apparently did not take kindly to the Barry-cade that seemed to be in the middle of nowhere.  But did the bison start screaming to throw the bums out, start an email campaign to its congressman or go to court?  You have to watch to get your answer.
