Kevin Baker of The Smallest Minority posted thus:
We can have a system of government based around the Constitution with democratically elected representatives. Or we can have one based on the ideological principles of the left in which all laws and processes, including elections and the Constitution, are fig leaves for enforcing social justice.
But we cannot have both.
Some civil wars happen when a political conflict can’t be resolved at the political level. The really bad ones happen when an irresolvable political conflict combines with an irresolvable cultural conflict.
That is what we have now.
The left has made it clear that it will not accept the lawful authority of our system of government. It will not accept the outcome of elections. It will not accept these things because they are at odds with its ideology and because they represent the will of large portions of the country whom they despise.
The question is what comes next.
Yes it is.
What comes next, indeed?
We have already seen areas in major U.S. cities where one may not travel safely. Including racial and religious intolerance. Now, political intolerance has been added. People being attacked because they openly support The President or just appear to have!
There is now a massive divide in this Republic, and it appears no amount of positive propaganda, Norman Rockwell posters or calls to regain civility will solve the problem. The Fabian Socialists have reunited with the Communists (non-Fabian socialists), and are systematically attempting to disrupt social order to the point government has lost perceived control.
Just as Norman Thomas, Saul Alinsky and George Soros wanted.
And, as the public education system has been so diluted, edited or poisoned to the extent American generations no longer understand (or support) The Constitution and Bill of Rights, this will go either of two ways:
BIGGOV will attempt to regain control by being more fascistic (see The Patriot Act), or the Leftists will continue to promote more violence and social disorder until the government falls.
In any case, I don’t see a pleasant, non-violent outcome for The Republic.
The Great Experiment is coming to an end.
Whether we want it to, or not…
