In my prolonged vacation, I've been hospitalized in critical condition for something I insisted was trivial up until the last minute. Don't wanna talk about it. If you're curious, just assume it was an STD from straight sex. With a supermodel. I've also moved out of what was my adopted home state of Texas back to my disgruntled and snappish previous home state of Arizona. (Shh! We don't get along too well!)
If you're wondering about the title, God bless you!! But it's there for a reason. The president has made statements recently saying that as the Chief Executive, he has the authority, "the phone and the pen" to enact de facto law at his desk in the Oval Office. Senator Feinstein has stated that the First Amendment "was intended for educated Americans", not bloggers without a degree in political science or law, that they should expect jail time for speaking ill of the federal government, its employees, political appointees, or its elected officials. Former Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona has stated that only "gun control" can stop the types of violence such as the [insert latest mass shooting here]. In other words, the Constitution is under attack by members of the government. They are seeking to throw off the shackles of Constitutional restraint of their actions. Christians are increasingly in the federal crosshairs, as are family businesses, property owners, and gun owners. It is not beyond possibility that America could reach a boiling point leading to civil war. This isn't an original thought on my part. In fact, this post is a direct result of a Facebook post from Jay Rowell of today, May 28, 2014.
And so, having already bemoaned the prediction process and its ego murdering aftermath, I will nonetheless indulge in it anyway! Masochist me, huh? Based on my study of history (what little I have access to) it will go something like this:
Perhaps I'm off on some of these points. Perhaps way off. Perhaps totally wrong on all counts. In fact, I hope so. I hope reason and restraint prevail. I hope there is never an innocent victim of federal zeal, much less, God forbid, children! If all this comes off as I've outlined, it means tens of thousands dead in a matter of days. If there is not a decisive victory in short order, there will be millions of dead Americans on both sides. I have a wife and two children. I have a mother I would defend to the death. Oh, I have friends I would be honored to fight alongside, but they also have spouses and children. No civil war is ever a victory. Sometimes the just and righteous prevail, sometimes not. And sometimes, despite the outcome, tyranny creeps in and takes over.
It makes no difference to the dead, or their families, or their loved ones, who is to blame.
