Backup, Backup, Backup! The latest in backup plans...

I guess everybody'd got to have a fall back, just in case things don't quite go as planned - or the way your god promised...

The latest grisly backup plan comes out of - where else - Virginia!

A Republican newsletter in Virginia, known as “The Constitutional Conservatives”, published in March by the Greene County, Virginia Republican Committee, is openly calling for violently overthrowing the duly elected government of the United States should Democrats still be in charge.

“We have before us a challenge to remove an ideologue unlike anything world history has ever witnessed or recognized. An individual who has come to power within a Nation which yields it’s strength over the entire world. An elected leader who shuns biblical praise, handicaps economic ability, disrespects the honor of earned military might. In the coming days and weeks  ~ we the people must come to grasp as a common force, our very soul’s, that our future as a sovereign nation is indeed at risk. If every single individual that you know, would contact 25 other individuals  ~ we can make a difference that will be heard across the Commonwealth and in Washington. The ultimate task for the people is to remain vigilant and aware  ~ that the government, their government is out of control, and this moment, this opportunity, must not be forsaken, must not escape us, for we shall not have any coarse but armed revolution should we fail with the power of the vote in November ~ This Republic cannot survive for 4 more years underneath this political socialist ideologue.”
Not for the first time, since that Senate candidate in Nevada,  Sharon Angle, advised Second Amendment Remedies if they failed in their efforts to get elected.

Last time I checked, no armed rebellion - yet.

Please, can we stop this shit now?  I get it, the man's half black - though the old die-hards still rate that as effectively black anyway - but this is the 21st century, folks.  You just can't turn back the clock - not if you like your iPhones, frozen TV dinners and Ted Haggard on the tube regularly.  If you turn back one thing, it all goes, since it takes a modern, technological society to get all that done.

You really need to let that rebellion thing go, too.  That was fine in the 18th century, when everybody and his brother had muskets, and privately held weapons were often more accurate than what the government issued its troops.

This days are gone forever, or haven't you noticed?  Yes, I know a lot of you gun nuts have AK-47s, but the government has the name and address of every one of you who have licenses to own machine guns, so you can write those off now.  I'd say that the Air Force can knock off most of the real nuts in short order, standing off with fuel air bombs that'll suck all the air out of your hard-dug bunkers in about ten seconds.

Besides, all that is beside the point.

What you are suggesting is treason.  Pure, unadulterated treason.

I took TWO oaths of office swearing to uphold the Constitution of the United States.  It wasn't an oath to a President, or a Congress, or to the People, of which I am one.

It was an oath to protect and defend that Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic, because that Constitution is OUR AGREEMENT to run this country according to a blueprint designed to give everybody an equal chance at a happy life.  You know, that pursuit of happiness thing you crow so much about in the Declaration of Independence?

The DOI is a document which severed ties with Great Britain.  TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY SIX YEARS AGO! It's historic, yes, but its usefulness as a legal document is just that, historical.

The Constitution says NOTHING about allowing armed rebellion, in fact, it gives the government the power to suppress armed rebellion, and provides specifically for the crime of treason!

Put that in yer corned cob pipe and smoke it...

Obama may yet win, or he may lose.  We each have our 'druthers.  But you won't hear a single person of any note at all on the left espousing armed rebellion if Romney wins.

But, somehow, it's ok if the official newsletter of a County Republican Party tells its members to get ready to raise a ruckus.

What the fuck is wrong with you people?
