A Nation Adrift

America is a nation adrift, floating on a sea of change. It is a defining era. The 2016 Presidential election is a reflection of this confused and conflicted society. Terrorism, political correctness, larcenous bankers, rigged economics, runaway immigration and hopeless unemployment swirl about in a stew of discontent and distrust.
There is no institution of the past that has retained its once unquestioned credibility. Banks, with solid walls, shined floors and oak desks in the wake of the economic collapse have revealed themselves as shells of glitter surrounding nothing. Empty promises, empty vaults with the proverbial "next shoe" dangling precariously in the lobby.
There is a sense of being conspired against, but perhaps that is because those conspiracies have been exposed for what they have always been. Politicians have always lied, but not always with such unabashed glee at confounding the public desire. There is a sort of pride in themselves for having played the public for suckers. Never was this on display as with the disclosure of the lies told to conclude the Iran Nuclear deal. Equally dastardly were the lies told by Republican politicians in order to get elected in 2014.
The emergence of Donald Trump is in direct response to those lies. He embodies the backlash of the Republican voters to the great consternation of the old-guard Republican establishment. It is a comeuppance of sorts for people who are not accustomed to being challenged or defied. Worse for them is the fact that they have no clout with Trump. The Republican establishment has already spent their political capital trying to keep him from the nomination and have discovered that their perceived "capital" was as empty of value as their promises.
This election, though politically irrelevant, signals a sort of defining moment in American history. Trump has demonstrated the ability to call out the leftists for their deceptions and while he might not be expounding the virtues of liberty and the Constitutional protection of rights, no Republican politician has had the backbone to challenge the left for decades. This creates, for the first time in a long time, a division between the Republicans and the Democrats. While Trump might not be the white knight needed for the liberty/patriot community, he does put the lie on the liar's lips.
Before this sounds like an endorsement or support, politics today are a sideshow and Trump is Barnum and Bailey. I appreciate the truth he delivers to the public while he exposes the weakness of his opponents, but that is as far as it goes. He does not offer solace, hope, pride, revenge or peace.
He is a well-deserved thorn in the side of political establishments on both sides and I find that amusing.
The bigger picture shows that our society is at a crossroads and no politician is going to determine the outcome. Forces have been unleashed that cannot be recalled. Fraud is institutional across the spectrum. The dire state of the economy has been hidden by the Obama Administration with the willing aid of the media. Racial tensions have intentionally been heightened and used to silence opposition and encourage violence. Seeds like these grow, they do not die.
One man (or more) perpetrated the worst terror attack since 9/11 and it rightly demonstrated the risk of allowing unrestricted immigration from Muslim nations. The risk is far greater because the shooter was American born, because if an American born Muslim can be so radicalized, what happens when they arrive radicalized and with intent? We are one notch closer to societal meltdown and the realization of Obama's vision for America.


  1. If the government can revoke your right to access firearms simply because it has decided to place you on a secret, notoriously inaccurate list, it could presumably restrict your other rights in a similar manner. You could be forbidden from advocating for causes you believe in, or associating with like-minded activists; your right against intrusive, unreasonable searches could be suspended. And you would have no recourse: The government could simply declare that, as a name on a covert list, you are owed no due process at all.

    President Obama and Hillary Clinton are wrong to think that arbitrary lists are a valid and legal means of stripping Americans of their gun rights.

    It would be nice if the Republican Party had chosen as its standard-bearer someone who could articulate the conservative case for the Second Amendment and due process. Instead, it chose Trump. Now gun rights will be in jeopardy, no matter which of the two charlatans currently seeking the presidency prevails.

  2. The previous post is right on target. I will add although Trump is not perfect by any stretch, lets hope when (if) he is elected that he surrounds himself with persons that know how to deal with the depths of treason that the current administration is involved in. I too am tired of voting for the lesser of two evils, and from what I have observed over the past 30 years, Hillary would be much worse! this is a Judeo Christian Nation, it needs to return to that model. I don't think that it is too far fetched to believe that the possibility of martial law will come to bear prior to bobo leaving office. My gut does tell me that the fix is in and we will be watching Hildebeast move into the peoples house with her predator husband in tow. God Bless America, for the kingdom, the power and glory is his.

  3. Make no mistake, Hillary will be the next president. She is the "king" that this nation wants. She will play a big part in finalizing and converging what is needed to destroy America and graft us into the global government.
    People are still under the delusion that there is still hope, there is not. Why? Because the culture is too far gone to repent. The damage has already been done in the schools and morality has changed so much, our society is sick.

    This is no longer a judeao Christian nation, it has become a pagan nation.

    God is not blessing America, judgement is already here, and we can look forward to the destruction of the Constitution and the institution of sharia law in many places.

    If the nation is disarmed, then according to history, tyranny will follow and millions of people will be oppressed and killed.

    Get right with Lord Jesus Christ because he is the only hope for you once this life us over

  4. Give it up already. The country is shot and there is no way for Trump or anyone else to fix it. The soul of the country, the people, have been suckered and weakened for far to long. The only option left is vengeance. Make them pay.

    1. What vengeance would you have. Any violence against people can and should be put down. I think the states rights are sufficient to push back at this point. Focus on strengthening state soveignty from federal intervention.

    2. Sorry Cowboy, don't see it. States rights are only as good as the people in the states and how much ass they have to take the fight to the enemy. Maybe you can list those states that are strengthening their sovereignty. I have to laugh when I read about Texas getting their asses kicked by obamas imported civilian army. Don't mess with Texas. Sure, what ever you say.

  5. "Adrft" isn't the word. Ours has become a nation of idiocracy - a man who has put himself in a barrel and set himself in the current leading to Niagara Falls...

    And yet how many will be 'shocked' when we go over?
    Idiocracy, indeed.
