The Reconstruction of our Fallen Republic

I take the privilege of brevity for this small speech, partly for the lateness of the hour at which I write, partly for the well known and notorious circumstances around which I write, and partly for the fact that long-winded eloquence does not befit the state of our nation.

I shall come immediately to the point, and that is that I am prepared to declare that our great Republic has ended. It is not lightly that I declare this, nor for effect or dramatics. I need not enumerate the ways and means by which it has been put asunder, as they are apparent.

Representative Ron Paul's response to whether he would consider running for President in the next election was, "In what country?!"

Indeed, in what country? There is nothing left, not one thing of our Republic left for us to build upon. Any attempt to reinstate the sovereignty of our Constitution would be in a reconstruction unlike any undertaken in history, as not one stone has been left unturned in the sacking of our country.

Look for the rebuilding of our country, and cling to those ideas which would bring our Republic back, but don't expect it to be brought back by the same system that drove it out.

The states and their legislatures are busy either declaring their sovereignty or declaring themselves agents of the federal powers, with the people left to decide whether to obey state, federal, or local powers; all the while, those federal powers are declaring themselves mightier than all.

This cannot go on for much longer, as there will be a clash among them, eventually. We, the people, will be left as the pawns of such a clash, losing our homes, lives, and fortunes while the governments duke it out.

And when it is over, there will be alternatives to our reconstruction:

1776: Revamp our entire system to resume its former structure and ability, returning to a Constitutional government system.

1861: Split into individual states, each with its own set of morals and laws; some states forming unions other states, some remaining entirely independent.

1984: Be ruled by the victor of the altercation that brought our country to an end, being worse off than ever before in a centrist dictatorship.

Start choosing sides, as the lines are being drawn today.

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." ~II Chronicles 7:14

Amen.

Is it okay if I do a cross post and link to this one?

"Indeed, in what country? There is nothing left"

Not on a governmental level, but you and the millions like you are living proof that *something* remains of the old 18th century American settler.

Amen to that, Adam S.!
Great post, Son3!

Have you seen Old Virginia's newest post? BTW, I choose 1861; though it would be preferable for another 1776, I just don't see 1776 happening, though 1861 is certainly a very viable option. And it's a sore spot with me since the South lost the War. :(

You hit the nail right on the head, AdamS! Thanks!

Thanks for the comment, Johann!

I'll pop over and look at that.

Yes, '61 is probably the best option, and for the same reasons as you gave.

The South shall Rise Again!

Not long ago I would have called you (at least in my mind) a fatalist and a cynic, but now I would have to agree. Unless we really do have a "No Incumbents 2010" scenario, there will be little left of the Republic by the end of this administration.

I vote for 1861. Decentralized confederacy is the way to go.

What's that? Oh, right- we won't vote on things anymore.

Obama woke you up, huh?

He was the best thing that ever happened to this people.

I would have called myself a nutjob, but I found out there was more to American politics than "I'm a Republican, I hate Democrats."

Now I hate them all.

It keeps me warm.
