Delaying Action: Sarah
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
October 28, 2010

We prefer the term Hard Right rather than Far Right.

Hard Right conveys that there is a hard line, which we represent.  I think it fairly represents the III & RTC Communities, and a significant number of real Tea Party folks...not those who have permitted the Republicans to bring them effortlessly into the fold without pre-conditions.

There is chatter on the Hard Right about this very topic, the reality that the Tea Party has permitted themselves to stand shoulder to shoulder with Establishment Republicans.  Folks on the Hard Right are not amused, pleased, or particularly feeling generous toward that segment of the Tea Party.

Many, too many, are already dismissing the entire movement and sniping at folks who claim the Tea Party brand.  We have noted on this site in columns that there is no Tea Party candidate today running on the rhetoric that is preferred by real Tea Party folks.  No one is demanding the evisceration of federal Entitlements.  No one is calling for the immediate repeal of all gun laws that infringe.  No one is calling for any charges of Treason for Foreclosuregate, the bailouts, et cetera.

Concerned American over at Western Rifle Shooters uses the phrase polygonal battlespace in our particular bit of the blogosphere, and I will use it because it is the perfect articulation of the threats and challenges faced by Patriots in our efforts to return to our Founding Principles...whatever that may mean to you.

One aspect of the polygonal battlespace is political.  To be sure, if you wish to see America restored without violence, it is within the political realm that the paradigm must shift most immediately and fundamentally.  Our politics, given to us through our Founding Documents by our Founders and Framers, is a system in which we may use ballots instead of bullets to live among one another.  Wisely, understanding human nature as they did, our Founders and Framers recognized, in writing, that the use of ballots did not forever negate our right to bullets.  But I think we can all agree that if we are able to live amicably and prosperously without resorting to violence, that is the preferred methodology.

It is a simple reality of our politics that any President that we elect will, absolutely, need the votes of political moderates, those so-called Independents.  There are simply not enough Republican or Democrat voters to elect a President along party lines.  As a result, any candidate must moderate their rhetoric while campaigning so as to not alienate that important middle voter.

In many of our races for the US Senate & Governorships, the same realities obtain.  Not all, but most.  There are a few such seats that can reliably be won on party line votes.  So as we watch candidates challenge one another for important seats, we will, by necessity, bear witness to an inauthentic moderation of rhetoric by design.

Given these political realities, should we be surprised that those candidates running on the Tea Party brand have moderated their rhetoric as they moved from their Primaries to the General races?  Of course not.

For many people on the Right, including the Hard Right, it was love at first sight for Sarah Palin. We liked the way she lived, hunting and fishing and snowmobiling.  She was immediately recognized as one of us.  Without question, her introduction to the American public by her McCain handlers was an absolute Cluster Foxtrot, and that she managed to survive at all indicates that there is something under the hood.

Don't retreat, reload!

Remember that?  What other politician has the grit to say such a thing in this politically correct nightmare that has become our beloved republic?

Before your eyes glaze over and you leave, thinking I am going to solicit your vote for Sarah...nope.  An article title over at Politico today made my skin crawl: Palin quotes Lincoln in Defense of Beck.

Yeah.  Even if she is playing to the center, it's hard to watch.  Most readers know my thoughts of Lincoln: He deserves an aluminum cot in an iron room next to the furnace in Hell.  Any so-called Patriot (Beck) who pays homage to Lincoln is on the Watch List.

Our point: We of the Hard Right should temper our righteous indignation toward those few Politicians who are genuinely right-of-center, especially when they must play political games to achieve a seat at the table.  Let's not beat them up before they even get elected.  Once they are in office, if they betray their Tea Party brand, they earn our wrath.  But until then, we must fight the urge to form circular firing squads. 

Even if a Tea Party branded politician makes it to office, yet they do not meet your expectations, try to remember that it could be worse.  It could be a RINO, or a Dem, or a Liberal.

One reality that seems to be missed by many on the Hard Right who are throwing their hands up regarding this topic is this: We must choose from the politicians in the ring.  Of those politicians for whom one can vote, choose the one that most represents your positions. 

And instead of condemning Sarah or Christine or Rand for not being Tea Party enough, ask yourself why there is not a candidate more to your liking in the mix?  Why aren't some of your favorite Hard Right bloggers on the ballot?  Why isn't Stossel or the Judge on the ballot?  Rather than condemning a limited selection of candidates, go to work for someone for whom you'd be proud to vote.

But the most important facet of this discussion is to remember that this is a polygonal battlespace.  Politics alone will not decide the victor.  But politics will be an important facet, even if some our worst scenarios come to pass.  It will matter who sits in the White House in an economic collapse.  It will matter who your Senator and Governor are if the Federal Government suddenly becomes moot.

Choose the most-Right candidate you can choose, and focus on the other aspects of your preparations.

The worst that can happen...we elect Sarah and it turns out that she is not the next Jefferson. 

At least her policies, compared to any Democrat running against her, will serve as a delaying action, slowing the rate of decay and give us a few more hours/days/months to prepare.


III Percent Patriots



Excerpt: There comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate as the only option on the table.  Dare we not offend the sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our midst who are ruining and destroying our republic?  Are we to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin, poverty, tyranny, and death?!

Are we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America?  We ask you, is not our republic worth the risk of being castigated?  Is the soul of our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our lives, and our Sacred Honor?  Have we lost so much of our heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny as the world has never before witnessed?

Excerpt: You are a fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many of their edicts.  In drafting healthcare reform, they use the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and prison if you refuse to buy health insurance! 

How is that not only a degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to Russians, Germans, and the Chinese.  It starts with Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism, Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.

Excerpt: We have a culture of people whose first response to a physical threat is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer.  We have a nation of people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the restaurant – and win!  We have a nation of educators who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and tell! 

We have a nation of people so removed from the food chain that many would starve to death if the local supermarket closed.  We have a nation of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most of the people in the world every day, and as a result we have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common sense.

Excerpt: The Bill of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that are not bestowed by government, but rights that are innately ours as human beings.  These rights may not be taken from us.  These rights were written in plain language so that no clever interpretation and manipulation of the intent was possible.  These rights may not be restricted, narrowed, or infringed.  Any attempt to do so is a violation of the relationship between Man and Creator. 

Every narrowing, restriction, infringement, and clever interpretation imposed upon us in the years since our Constitution was ratified is simply a violation of our natural rights.

We hold that every violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by those in Government is an act of Treason, as these violations are unjust, undermining the fundamental foundations of our republic, breaking the pact between citizen and government, and desecrating the relationship between Man and Creator.  Any man or woman who enforces these unconstitutional laws on behalf of government is a treasonous soul and an enemy of Liberty and humanity.

III Percent Patriots

Get your head on straight, Patriot!Following the counsel of idiots and hollow heroes regarding SHTF circumstances will get you dead...and if you can't tell the difference between serious men and hot-air machines, you're already half way to a mass grave.  Growling on blogs about how you will not yield one more inch, or one more of your gun rights, then letting LEO have your pistol during a traffic stop makes you a pathetic joke, not a Leader worthy of serious consideration.  Hyperbolic proclamations about what you will do to any Alphabet Agency team making a dynamic entry to your home is hardly helpful to the Patriot cause.

Man up and think for yourself, or you are wasting perfectly good air, and feeding those who depend on your intellect and common sense false hope.

"Liberalism, and Liberals, are ruinous to the republic, and must be marginalized if America is to survive.  Patriots must step to this challenge and risk the wrath of the Politically Correct, and do the work that must be done to honor our Fathers.  Liberals must be stopped, at any cost." - Kerodin

"No, I apologize for nothing.  I know the truth, regardless of what may be in the press.  I know that when I stand before Saint Peter, I will be granted passage.  If I am ever granted audience with God, I have nothing to fear.  I have lived the life He chose for me, and I still have much work to do..." - Kerodin

"No man looks forward into life when young and can imagine for himself the life I have lived.  But I am better for it.  I have been places never anticipated.  I have had experiences never dreamed.  I have met people who would have never otherwise been in my social or professional circle.  I have, many times, leaned upon the words of Winston Churchill - 'When you are going through Hell, keep going!'" - Kerodin

My family continues to promote my values where I can not.  They are Patriots.  If you ever meet my wife, you will meet the most loyal wife and Patriot in America.  She is brave, brilliant, and bold.  We fight Liberal stupidity together through the First Amendment.  Laws change - and one day I will stand with her again in the Second Amendment fight that she carries on when I must stand aside."  - Kerodin

Current political leaders are only the face of the problem confronting America today.  The underlying cancer eating the American Soul is Liberalism.  But for your Liberal neighbors, Liberal politicians would never be elected to office.

It is not sufficient to simply defeat Liberal politicians at the polls.  Liberalism must be defeated in our society and Liberals must be marginalized, or this disease will kill the republic.

Every patriotic business owner should immediately fire every Liberal on staff and hire an employee who respects the nation and our Constitution.  Why should any business owner suffer an employee who will simply vote for politicians who further ruin the company?!

The Liberals in your community must be ostracized and denied entry into your social circle.  These stupid people are responsible for the insanity that affects everything from your property taxes to the curriculum taught to your children.  Why would you break bread with them, when they are the reason your bread costs too much?  Why would any parent permit them access to their children, when they are responsible for ruining your child's future?


This book may not be for you.

If you consider yourself to be a Liberal or Progressive, go away. You are not permitted to buy this book. This book is written by patriotic Americans for patriotic Americans. This is a discussion among ourselves, and if you are a Liberal politician or you vote for Liberal politicians,
(Of the genus Stupidus Liberalis)  you are not invited to participate.

First, we will demonstrate that all politicians, judges, and government employees at the Local, State, and Federal levels who support federal Healthcare Reform, the Assault Weapons Ban, TARP, Stimulus I, Free Trade Agreements, PATRIOT Act, the new “Jobs” bill, or a host of other such Federal programs or initiatives, are guilty of Treason against the United States of America.

Secondly, businesses, multi-national corporations and special interest groups that support Liberal politicians and/or Liberal programs, Cap & Trade, Global Warming legislation, et cetera, are committing Treason against the United States of America.

Finally, we will demonstrate that those private Citizens who support or vote for any of these politicians—once the nature of the politician is known to the public—or programs are equally guilty of Treason by knowingly lending material aid and support to a Traitor.

Excerpt: The five most expensive parts of our national budget are:

1.      Social Security

2.      Medicare

3.      Medicaid

4.      Defense

5.      Interest on the National Debt

Numbers 1, 2 and 3 are wholly unconstitutional and brought to us by Liberals. 

Number 5 is wholly a result of numbers 1, 2 and 3!
