We prefer the term
Hard Right rather than Far 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.
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
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
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
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
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.
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?!
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
and think for yourself, or you are wasting perfectly
good air, and feeding those who depend on your intellect
and common sense false hope.

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
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?

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

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

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!
