On the battlefield, hesitation can make you dead. Once the battle is joined, there is no time for analysis paralysis. The decision for war has been made somewhere above your pay grade, and it is time for you to do your duty. Things have a way of becoming crystal clear at that point. There is a lot riding on every shot taken, or not taken. Your life, maybe. Other members of the unit. A battle. A war. A nation.
The deadly menace America and Western Civilization faces today is due entirely to hesitation, analysis paralysis, indecision and wishful thinking, way, way above our pay grade. We see the mortal threats clearly, but our world leaders do not, or, they are traitors and they are in on it.
We have talked, all over this website, about how Marxism, as a religiously-cleansing ideology, is the openly declared mortal enemy of America and all other Western Civilization institutions, including Christianity and all other religions.
We have talked, all over this website, about how Islam, as a religion and as an ideology, is the openly declared mortal enemy of America and all other Western Civilization institutions, including Christianity and all other religions.
Simple common sense tells us all that Christian American Politics are so incompatible with Marxism and Islam as to be mortal enemy ideologies that simply may not peacefully coexist in the same culture. America began life, necessarily, with Christian Morality driving her Politics. And that worked fine, and made America a great nation, until Marxism-infected American politics began driving American morality, and suppressing American religion.
With an evil purpose.
There is nothing tough about this. It is quite simple. All you have to do is read what Marx wrote, and read what Mohammed had written for him, to see that the very purpose for being of Marxism and Islam involves the destruction or absolute subjugation of our religion, our nation, and the whole world. They make no bones about it.
Their declaration of war against us is open and above board, and our leaders either fail to recognize it, or they are in on it, and fully on board with our religious and political destruction. Allowing Marxism and Islam inside the perimeter of defense is akin to sitting down with a cannibal tribe to negotiate the menu for dinner.
It's stupid. Or, it's treasonous.
But, of course, we have over the years so defined treason down that, as a practical matter, treason no longer exists.
Time after time, our leaders had the enemy in their sights and failed to pull the trigger. Time after time, they could have made the kill shot, while it was still merely political as opposed to live fire, and they not only hesitated, but welcomed our mortal enemy in among us.
The McCarthy Hearings provided the best example of blessing the enemy and turning the political guns on ourselves. Instead of excising the Communists out of the government and the armed forces, and "Black Listing" Communists in education, entertainment and journalism, our leaders blessed all that encroaching Communism, and destroyed Senator McCarthy.
They could have made the kill shot right then, but they just couldn't pull the trigger.
And now, as a predictable result, we have political disinformation programs masquerading as formal education, subliminal anti-American pro-Marxist propaganda embedded in entertainment and a thoroughly ideologically Marxist News Media and a Political Party, and an opposition Political Party that doesn't see any of this as particularly problematic.
That, right then, was when Marxism took over and started driving the American political bus. Why, we couldn't simply Black List people we didn't agree with; that's not our "values" and not what America is "about". We are about Freedom of Speech, even when the speech intends to destroy freedom of speech. Even when the speech intends to destroy the Constitution. Even when the speech intends to destroy us as a nation.
Our media, our entertainment industry and our politicians were actually able to convince much of the American populace that freedom of speech protects the speech of America's mortal enemies, but not the speech of American Constitutionalists. Not the speech of heterosexuals. Not the speech of Christians. Not the speech of the Pro-Life Movement. Not the speech of white people. Marxism and Islam, yes; Americanism, no.
You need look no further than our current President to verify all of this.
Comrade Obama (peace be upon him) was raised by Communists and educated by Moslems. His whole family was steeped in hatred for Western Civilization and white people. Look up Frank Marshal Davis on the internet, and see that Obama's main father-figure and chief mentor in his formative years was a committed Marxist Revolutionary.
Obama's own writing reveals that he is a Marxist, a dope smoker and snorter, a racist and a general opponent of "establishment" and "institution". His friends, associates and colleagues are all anti-American, some of them criminally so. Obama the Moslem reveals, through his own words, his hatred of Christianity and favoring of Islam.
Look at his history of Alinsky "Community Organizing" for the destruction of institutions, including the institution of America.
Just look at all of his carefully chosen Obama-Czars, and count the Marxists among them. Then, look at the sworn members of the murderous Islamic Jihadist group Moslem Brotherhood, with whom he negotiates, and puts in charge of our American national security.
Having blown the opportunity of the McCarthy Hearings, the targets became so numerous as to be overwhelming. Every time the shooter hesitates, he increases the likelihood of hesitating again. Sooner or later, when the position is overrun, you either surrender, or it becomes a matter of hand-to-hand.
The restoration of Constitutional America might go a whole lot easier if all the shots taken are political shots, rather than physical ones. But none of our "Establishment" politicians appear to be up to the task. Whether they suffer from analysis paralysis or treason makes little difference at this point. They keep failing to pull the political trigger. They are not returning fire, or even resisting. They puff and bloviate and speechify, while the enemy advances. The enemy is now right in among them, holding office. And they just go on about their business as if nothing has changed.
The only person they fire political shots at is Trump.
That should tell us something about our two Parties.
America needs a President, whether Trump or a Trump successor, who is not afraid to use the Constitution as written, and take whatever is unconstitutional, and just declare it null.
That, would truly be a shot heard round the world.
Especially if Congress would not go along with the declaration. Bottom line, the Constitution itself rules. Ask whether the law (precedent, regulation, bureaucracy, etc.) is Constitutional, or not Constitutional? If it is a violation of the Constitution, the supreme law of the land, then it doesn't matter what any Congress or any Court says about it.
The Constitution rules. The Constitution says so.
The President can shut it down, refuse to enforce it if it is a law, fire everybody in it if it is a bureaucracy, and refuse to spend treasure on it, whatever it is. And make the whole Establishment Club look very bad while doing it. Because it is unconstitutional.
Very simple; nothing to it. Keep it very, very public.
Note well that the Congress establishes the Budget, but the President writes the checks. Or not. He cannot Constitutionally spend treasure on unauthorized things, but he certainly can refuse to spend treasure on anything that violates the clear and simple English of the Constitution.
The first key to unraveling the whole unconstitutional mess would be breaking the income tax, and a President, with a willing Congress, with the Constitution in hand, could do it. And, yes, it can be done quickly. Trump's proposed three-bracket tax, or any other tax reduction or scheme, including even a flat-tax, will only be a temporary patch. If the Income Tax is allowed to continue to live, in any form at all, sooner or later corrupt politicians will modify it again to their own advantage, and re-complexify it. The Income Tax needs to be permanently destroyed, and the IRS with it. So long as the Income Tax lives, the IRS lives, too.
Breaking Taxation and breaking the IRS will, almost on its own, begin to break the Establishment, and cripple if not kill Cronyism. Because it will break the money flow between the Establishment Club and the unconstitutional Parties. At the same time, it would fully fund the whole government and all expenses, including Social Security, and provide a monthly income, in the form of the "Pre-Bate", to American citizens that would exceed the Communist state established income of Cuban workers, but without the requirement to work.
A President Trump or a successor could then begin to rapidly dismantle the whole stinking welfare system.
A President, with Constitution in hand, could go right through all of the steps among the Restoring Constitutional America pages, step by step, and, buddabing, buddabang, buddaboom, we're back under our Constitution where we belong, and once again we are out from under the rule of men.
A political trigger-pulling President could absolutely humiliate the Congress and the Court by forcing them to publicly fight against the very Constitution they all swore in their very oaths of office to uphold.
In accordance with Article One Section One, the Congress has exclusive authority to make new law. Not the Court, and not the President, and not any agency or bureaucracy. In accordance with Article One Section Eight, if it isn't listed among the limited and enumerated powers of the federal government, the federal government is not authorized to address it, either in legislation, enforcement or adjudication.
If any federal level law, by any name, was never legislated, and if any federal level government entity is out-of-constitutional-scope, the President can simply declare it null, shut it down and be done with it.
Talk about a rich target field, and a lot of potential kill shots.
Just try to count the Court Precedents, the Executive Orders and the Bureaucratic Regulations, as well as bureaucracies, that are unconstitutional on their face.
Further, he could get anti-Constitution officials out of office. If the House couldn't be humiliated into drawing up articles of impeachment against Congressmen, Senators and Justices, or if the Senate couldn't be humiliated into actually impeaching them from office, the President could order his Attorney General to seek charges against the offenders ranging from criminal malfeasance in office all the way up to treason.
The important thing is to just get them out of office.
These things can be done. These things should be done.
The only thing keeping them from being done is the lack of a leader with the guts to do them.
Someone who will actually pull the trigger and make the kill shot.
In politics, as on the battlefield, he who hesitates is lost.

"America began life, necessarily, with Christian Morality driving her Politics. And that worked fine, and made America a great nation..."
America began life with a morality inherited from the teachings of the Catholic Church but did not began life with the necessary recognition that God is the Supreme Authority over man and that the one, true Catholic religion has the only authority over the teaching of morality and the true "Christian" religion.
That it has worked fine "until Marxism-infected American politics began driving American morality, and suppressing American religion." No. The Protestant/Masonic idea that there is a right to religious liberty, or a right to be indifferent to the Truth Who is God, and a right to teach, publish and spread evil (everything that leads one away from the Truth), was a sure path to the collapse of any shared "morality" inherited from the Catholic religion even without the Marxist-infection which only added fire to the flame and assisted the Father of Lies to gain more souls a little faster.
America's leaders no matter what other label you attach to them have all been naturalists, never recognizing nor defending the One, Triune God as having any right whatsoever in the working of the government. America's only authority is the piece of paper called the Constitution, a document and not the Person who is the Christ. In other words, America was born with the pledge of "I will not serve" the Lord, Jesus Christ, Ruler of Heaven and earth, but serve his enemy and the enemy of man, Satan.
A house built on sand cannot stand forever.
The false principles of naturalism-Protestant/Masonic/Marxist/Modernism-guaranteed the house would fall.

Then go live somewhere else.
Where in Scripture or in the Catechism does the Catholic Church offer anyone anything other than a free will choice to accept or reject the Redemption that is given and the Saving Grace that is offered?
The Pilgrims came here to avoid what you are espousing, which is, Theocracy. And the Theocracy they were getting out from under was Protestant Theocracy, not Catholic. Establishing freedom of worship was a step in the right direction, not the wrong.
Civil authority and Ecclesial authority have always been two distinct things, until the Reformation, when Protestant rulers became popes of their domains. To this day the Queen of England is the pope of the Church of England.
Emperors and Kings have always tried to usurp some ecclesial power from the Popes, but ruling monarchy and nobility always remained separate and distinct from the religion. Even Bonaparte, who tried to commandeer and control the Papacy, did not succeed.
You have been ill served by your educators, Lanie.
Go through the Pro-American Quotations for how many times the Founders and the Framers referred to God, and to God as the Author of Nature.

We all have to live somewhere don't we? There isn't a country on earth where God is supreme or where His Laws are "the laws of the land." And as this place is only my temporary home, what I must do is live wherever I am, within His Laws if I ever hope to live in His presence, which is the only home that matters.
If it wasn't such a serious matter, I would have to laugh at those Catholics who refuse to see that we who are living in these dis-united States, are living right in the midst of an anti-Catholic theocracy where the state is god and secular humanism is the only state supported and approved religion. Prior to its absolute authority over the life of man, this country(the state) has always been a type of theocracy where conflicting Protestant sects have dominated and ruled the people. The Pilgrims may have immigrated here to escape the theocracy of the King's religion but set up their own theocracy based upon their own flawed interpretation of Christianity. The colonial states did the same thing, where their leader's religion ruled the governance of the state, sometimes forbidding anyone outside of their religion from living there and in fact, at one time, Catholics were forbidden any rights whatsoever if they happened to be allowed a residence in some states. (See the article "Let None Dare Call it Liberty: The Catholic Church in Colonial America" - www.traditioninaction.org/History/B_001_Colonies.html
And it could not be otherwise because the birth of this country was founded upon the principle that man has a right to sin against the First Commandment and has a right to publicly express any and all blasphemies and sacrileges against the one, true God as enshrined in its Protestant/Masonic/Humanist idea of religious liberty and freedom of speech provisions in the Constitution, which, by the way, were condemned by the faithful, orthodox, teachings of the Catholic Church. (Simply do some research.)
It has always been the teaching of the Catholic Church until the enemies of Christ infiltrated Her and began teaching the principles of the anti-Christ, that the one, true God-Father, Son, and Holy Ghost-is the spiritual and temporal Supreme Authority over man. Man has no "right" to teach, preach and spread any false religion. Man has no "right" to impede anyone from knowing the Truth, who is Jesus the Christ, and His Truth found only in the Catholic religion. Thus it is the duty of the state to recognize Christ as both ruler of Heaven and of earth as He Himself revealed, and has a duty to promote and defend in its laws, the teachings of the one, true Catholic religion. The spiritual is the creator of the temporal and is its superior.
Catholic, Orestes Brownson, expresses it this way: http://orestesbrownson.org/765.html
"The spiritual is the creator of the temporal and is therefore its sovereign lord and proprietor,-its superior, not in rank and dignity alone, but in power, office, and authority. Under no possible point of view can the spiritual and the temporal have between them the relation of equality, or be two coordinate and mutually independent orders. In like manner as the creature is subject to the creator, is the temporal subject to the spiritual, and bound at all times and in all things to do its will. This natural relation of the two orders not God himself can alter, for he cannot alter the natural relation between himself as creator and contingent existences as his creatures. He can create or not create as seems to him good; but he cannot create creatures and not be their creator, or not have over them the intrinsic and indestructible rights of creator.
The spiritual in itself is God, and the temporal is only his creature, and hence we say the temporal is the creature of the spiritual, and the temporal order is absolutely subjected to the spiritual, as the creature to creator. If this be so, the spiritual is sovereign lord and master of the temporal, what we mean when we assert the supremecy of the spiritual."
But if the spiritual in itself is God, Who is this God? His name is never mentioned by the founders. He is never identified as Jesus the Christ, nor as one, true God, the Triune God-Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Why hesitate to name the true name of God?
A written document (the Constitution) that admits no higher authority than the text of its own words is as susceptible to being emptied of their true meaning and filled with false meanings to suit various perceived utilitarian "needs" in the hands of judicial positivists (those who believe the law is what they say it is regardless of moral truth and/or the plain meaning of words) as Sacred Scripture has been in the hands of Protestants. We know this to be true in the recent Supreme Court ruling to legalize "same-sex marriage", as though God's Natural Law is a myth.
But the Catholic in America has been so thoroughly indoctrinated into "Americanism", the term Pope Leo XIII used to describe what truly is a type of religion, that the Protestant/Masonic ideas are accepted and defended and the true teachings of Catholicism are not to be heard, nor if heard, not to be believed. (See Pope Leo's encyclical "Testem Benevolentiae Nostrae", January 22, 1899, which identifies the religion of Americanism - one excerpt from it is this: "...the confounding of license with liberty, the passion for discussing and pouring contempt upon any possible subject, the assumed right to hold whatever opinions one pleases upon any subject and to set them forth in print to the world, HAVE SO WRAPPED MINDS IN DARKNESS THAT THERE IS NOW A GREATER NEED OF THE CHURCH'S TEACHING OFFICE THAN EVER BEFORE, LEST PEOPLE BECOME UNMINDFUL BOTH OF CONSCIENCE AND DUTY".)
It doesn't matter if some president does everything you suggest. No document can claim greater authority than God.

Something else to ponder.
Here is what the Catholic teaching on the state, on liberty, on freedom of speech and of the press is:
Pope Leo XIII's encyclical "Libertas" -
"If the State has no duties toward God, or that such duties, if they exist, can be abandoned with impunity, both of which are manifestly false; for it cannot be doubted but that, by the will of God, men are united in civil society; whether its component parts be considered; or its form, which implies authority; or the object of its existence; or the abundance of the vast services which it renders to man.
God it is who made man for society, and has placed him in the company of others like himself, so that what was wanting to his nature, and beyond his attainment if left to his own resources, he might obtain by association with others.
Wherefore, civil society must acknowledge God as its Founder and Parent, and must obey and reverence His power and authority. Justice therefore forbids, and reason itself forbids, the State to be godless; or to adopt a line of action which would end in godlessness-namely, to treat the various religions (as they call them) alike, and to bestow upon them promiscuously equal rights and privileges since, then, the profession of one religion is necessary in the State, that religion must be professed which alone is true, and which can be recognized without difficult because the marks of true are, as it were, engraved upon it. This religion, therefore, the rulers of the State must preserve and protect, if they would provide-as they should do-with prudence and usefulness for the good of the community.
For public authority exists for the welfare of those whom it governs: and, although its proximate end is to lead men to the prosperity found in this life, yet, in so doing, it ought not to diminish, but rather to increase, man's capability of attaining to the supreme good in which his everlasting happiness consists: which never can be attained if religion be disregarded."

Again, you have made it quite clear how intolerant you are of all the imperfections in the American Constitution, and how you absolutely despise America. And again, I wonder what you're still doing here. You might be happier (maybe) living in Vatican City.
As for me, I'm going to stay right here and try to make a difference, rather than just bitch and groan about how awful everything is.
If you're not going to lead, and you're not going to follow, then get out of the way.

Wow. Such venom. Is your response a charitable, Catholic response?
Forgive me for entering your domain Vic.

From: Vic Biorseth
It is probably less charitable and less Catholic than real-world practical and to the point in an increasingly dangerous situation. The enemy has to be stopped before any perfect nation can be designed from the bottom up, and then brought into being. Your nation with a perfect or near perfect purely Catholic civil government already exists, and it is the Vatican.
I do forgive you and hope you forgive me.
PS: People do have a natural law right to choose to go to hell, and there is nothing we can do about that, other than preach the Truth and admonish the sinner, and if they won't listen, then shake the dust and move on. No one, and no civil government, can "order" or "legislate" anyone, let alone everyone, into heaven. Not even the Vatican.

Our Anti-American Government, defending our enemies, opposing us. The Obamunist Regime and the Marxocrat Party act like Defense Attorneys for Islam, Marxism and Immorality, and like Prosecuting Attorneys of White Christian Heterosexual Men.
The Great Global Deception: "Death of a thousand cuts" applied to Civilization. The Global Deception is Machiavellian-ism applied by inches, in which the "Revolution" never quite comes, because the Target Institution destroys itself.
