A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Todd Beamer uttered the immortal words: “Let’s Roll” just moments before he and a handful of his fellow passengers, aboard the doomed “flight 93,” counter-attacked their hijackers and thwarted the terrorist’s attempt to fly the airliner into the nation’s capitol building and thus saved the lives of US senators, Congresspersons, and members of their staffs, as well many other Americans just visiting the seat of their government.
I opened this commentary with the reference to Mr. Beamer’s immortal words because they capsulize the character of America.
“Let’s Roll” was a call to action by passengers on a hijacked airliner. Today, “Let’s Roll” is a call to action by Americans whose country has been hijacked by Socialist/Marxists.
We have said many times before that Americans are a breed apart. We are a mongrel nation, a mongrel people. Our national DNA, of necessity, must resemble a jigsaw puzzle. The one thing we have in common is our “uncommonness!” Many of us may resemble our European ancestors, or our ancestors from other parts of the world -- until you scratch the surface. Underneath you will find a “whole ‘nother” animal.
Now, most folks don’t know this and even fewer understand it, and fewer, still, understand what being “a breed apart” means, especially when Americans find themselves in trouble.
At this moment in history, the American people understand they -- and to be even more specific— their country -- is in jeopardy. Granted, we were slow to come around, at least some of us were, but now roughly 80% of Americans understand the power grab in Washington by the socialists/Marxists is, in fact, “a clear and present danger” to the republic and they have determined to stop those responsible and banish them to the “wilderness from whence they came.”
The democrats (Socialist/Marxists) are convinced they can maintain their hold on power by manipulating their base, the leftists, and the sub-class of Americans who are permanent, life-long, “wards of the government,” dependent on the federal government’s dole every month for their very existence. They are convinced they can rouse those people to the polls in November in a tidal wave of socialist approval and drown the flames of freedom now lighting up the landscape of America.
In the meantime, the Socialists/Marxists/Democrats need, desperately, to re-direct the nation’s attention away from their ruthless power grab called ObamaCare. They understand the more Americans learn about the new American Socialism (which, in reality, is nothing more than the OLD socialism) the angrier they become. The deeper the passion, the higher the level of American anger, the more likely is the possibility of a political massacre for the democrats at the polls this coming November.
It requires no great imagination, nor is it difficult to predict, a new crisis, of some kind, in the near future. The Obama regime, will, in my opinion, formulate a new crisis in order to deflect America’s attention, to take America’s attention away from his Socialist/Marxist power grab. Whatever the crisis turns out to be – it will happen fairly soon. So—be ready.
Now that Americans understand their country is under attack, under assault, watch for gun sales and ammunition sales to, once again, skyrocket.
Many off us took an oath when we were sworn into the US military. We swore to protect America from all enemies, foreign and domestic. It was a solemn oath -- one we took seriously then -- and continue to take seriously today. Is it any wonder Americans are beginning to feel a “showdown” of some kind is coming?
In “normal” times Americans have mini-revolutions -- at the ballot box -- every election day. But this coming Mid-Term Election, in November, is now understood to be absolutely critical to the continued existence of a constitutional republic on these shores – and -- in order to preserve it we have no choice but to cleanse the government of as many Socialist/Marxists as we possible can and continue the process through the Presidential Election in November of 2012.
So, let’s roll, America! We have a job to do. We must rescue America! Our freedom, our liberty, depends upon it.
