LaDaMan, I've read and admired your posts. Outstanding stuff. Inspiring, frankly.
This one is no exception.
One point I'd like to make. I'm not suggesting "giving up". The tactical fight and education must continue at all costs.
Yet, strategic planning shouldn't be left out and all options explored. The good points as well as the bad.
You can't kill an idea totally. It merely gets reborn/rethought of by someone else down the road.
The way I see it, we win a battle here and there while we are losing/lost the war. We concentrate on Obama when its the ideas we need to fight
otherwise the best we do is get agreement from the Dems that he wasn't our best President ever, but Hillary will do it better....
If that happens?? It's over. Done. IMO.
While we worry about the Feds, our schools, local gov't move down the same road as the Feds with little or no outcry.
I don't see on a political level either the motivation nor an electable individual forthcoming from the "Lip-service" party.
All I ask is plan for all eventualities, "honor the threat".
I have no desire to go down like the "Three Hundred" as romantic and honorable it was.
I'm convinced that if the Union did split, the other side would collapse in a generation, eat crow and come begging for food and goods.
We'd start by teaching them how to clean stalls, paint fences, iron shirts, cook, so on and they'd learn self respect instead of self esteem.
It may even be the fastest way to fix it all. Maybe I'm wrong, but when one reaches a point where it doesn't look like were gonna pull it off it
becomes, "retreat ,hell! We're advancing to the rear"....
