And You Thought D'RATS Were the Only Crazy Ones!
A KOS "Coup": CSKendrick's Diary
The issues of the day bear heavily on my heart, this concern that something I once wrote in jest is in truth the game plan of a president who well and truly would be king, and the sad reality that there are about 100 million of people who we call, sometimes, our fellow Americans who would be happy to see him on the throne, rather than suffer sharing power with the other 200 million of us.
Today I offer a shout through the countryside: We are far closer to a coup than we know, unless we via our elected Congress do something about it.
The message is not to start a ruckus, but to do what it takes to prevent one from becoming an inevitability. And there are no shortage of lawful, legal, traditional and peaceful (oh yes -- Constitutional!) means at the disposal of Americans, true and blue, to do just that.
A very long time ago, I wrote this speculative diary, on how I would go about setting up myself as absolute sovereign of the rich lands between Canada and Mexico, on the continent of North America. Were I interested in upending the Republic and setting myself up as king, then I'd have a lot of work cut out for me. After all, the United States' very existence is an explict eff you to monarchy.
Regardless, fascinations with power, with destiny, with imposing one's superior vision on a restive and chaotic public for its own good fill American history. An ancient example is Aaron Burr; a more recent one...well, you know the guy. He's the one claiming powers of legislation and judicial review lately.
Of course, this exercise stops being amusing very quickly: that's the point. You're not supposed to be amused. You're supposed to wonder: Hmm...someone could really do this someday. In fact, someone is doing it right before your eyes.
This "coup" (I should spell it "coop", for these moronic chickens flapping around the barnyard...) is truly a piece of Leftist idiocy. Les Ismore says 'everything' I post from DU is 'cherry-picked'; I wonder how he's going to explain this magnificent ode to lunacy (and all the others from which I have to choose) that are rife on the libby/leftist/Dem-commie blogs and web magazines. Actually, the trick would be to NOT stumble over them while trekking leftward, indeed, become steeped in them...
The first thing the author--this dedicated dope, cskendrick, would need to do is learn English--even grammar--reading heavily the tomes on sentence structure and the booklet 'Commas Are Our Friends'... From there, there are myriad ways he could improve--taking a sharp detour from rampant paranoia, crackpot nutbar theories of the 'Great Rightwing Plot To Rule the World', and 'How George Could Be King'.
Hopefully, he'd arrive at taking sensible stock of the world and, instead of seeing some magnificent quasi-kingmaking Manifest Destiny manifold, he'd simply take the muslims at their word, evaluate their past actions against us, their plans for the future, and their shame-based need for revenge. I guess that'd be too easy though--believing people who say they're going to be a threat, who've been a past threat, become a future threat.
For the Kos Kids, DUers, and Leftists among us, there's simply too much dash and pizzazz in either preparing one's velvets for Hillary/Eddie, Bambi's coronation--or readying the torches and pitchforks for George's.
