HALF-MOON RISIN’ – A Nation Divided

There is a perfect half-moon in the late night Missouri sky, wisps of white drift south across a gray background. It is a perfect metaphor of where America finds herself this morning … only, like me, she is unaware whether it’s a waxing or waning moon.

Thoughts of rebellion (a new War of Independence or a Second Civil War) are stalking the conversational highways and byways of this land; but unlike the coming morning, the sun may not rise and the gray may not evaporate … sadly the unwanted and undesirable end of the United States of America may well be on our horizon. We may well be a people irreparably divided.

Half of Liberty’s people have a worldview which insists on big government, entitlements and dependence; control of the people, by the government, and for the government; a de facto government press, a suppressed religious community, education by leftist fiat, observed and limited assembly (a police state via redaction of the Second Amendment); and, most distressful, taxation by a non-representative government at both the Federal level and State levels.


The other half professes a worldview in support of the nation’s founding principles: limited government, states rights, a free, unbiased, and independent press, a free and public religious community, education by the family or at least at the lowest level of government possible, personal responsibility; a free people – a government of the people, by the people, and for the people – who hold the power over their political representatives; an and independent press, a free and unrestrained assembly, the peoples’ right to own and bear arms, limited taxation with maximum representation – a truly federalist republic.



Apparently half of Liberty’s children don’t care about the other half – which is ironic – in that this has been their mantra against the other for almost 100 years, and is most egregiously evidenced by the secret, duplicitous and sinister inclusion of political projects (e.g., gun control, national health, pet environmental protections, union bribery) in a so-called “stimulus” bill on Friday the 13th of February, 2009. Unfortunately, at this time, no one can identify the individuals or groups of individuals who did this. (NOTE: call or write your representatives and demand to know their names)

To make matters worse the bill – the largest spending bill in the history of this country – was passed in both houses without a single congressman or senator having read it, let alone understand the bill.

King George III is once again on his throne and his subjects grovel under his oppressive slipper! For many Americans (I believe a true majority) the following could just as well be written to the Congress of the United States of America today …

Believe me, dear Sir: there is not in the British empire a man who more cordially loves a union with Great Britain than I do. But, by the God that made me, I will cease to exist before I yield to a connection on such terms as the British Parliment propose; and in this, I think I speak the sentiments of America.
–Thomas Jefferson, November 29, 1775 [Hazelton – Wiki note 3]



Care must be taken on this conversational journey; we will be watched – the Patriot Act and other federal laws, so despised by the left are now in their unfaithful hands – and people without principle will not hesitate to use them.

In my opinion, and prior to open rebellion, the best way to bring an end to this leftist oligarchy is to test our numbers with the elections in 2010 and 2012. As one person wrote recently on Twitter: “The stimulus will increase unemployment by 400 some in Congress, 100 in the Senate, and one in the White House in 2010 and 2012.”

Join with us and/or other patriotic traditionalist and conservative Americans to end this embarrassing debacle.
