Lady Liberty, R.I.P.

Seems the Senate Majority Leader, with 59 other accomplices, marched Lady Liberty out of the Senate chamber in the middle of the night, put a gun behind her ear, and pulled the trigger.

As it stands now, the ruination of our great land is at hand. This Congress and President have presided over the unprecedented take over of close to 70% of our economy. Between the takeover of two automobile manufacturers, countless banks and financial institutions, student loans, not to mention the looming cap and tax bill, our children will inherit a country so steeped in debt their great-grandchildren will still be paying the bills.

Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, and Saddam Hussein all are dancing a jig right now. What took them almost a century to fail to accomplish, this administration has accomplished in less than a year.

You know, my grandfather, rest his soul, once told me that this country was headed for another civil war. I fear his prediction may come true. For its entire history, armed revolution has always been a possibility in this country, but I fear it may now be certainty. There have always been three boxes we as Americans have been able to rely on. The soapbox, the ballot box, and the cartridge box. It's getting to the point where the first two are non-responsive, and the only option left is the latter.

I fear that day will come sooner rather than later, and I weep for what our once great country has become. So many people whose voices are as loud as any heavy metal concert are ignored by those who need to hear them most. Whose opposition to the direction this country has taken are not only ignored, but are routinely discounted as 'nut jobs, wackos, and extremists'. The pot is boiling, and if things don't change and soon, that pot will boil over.
