The Hayseed Rebellion

The New Normal: What was once seen as alien and perverted is now respectable. James B. Gannon explains:

One of the most striking things about this year's political discourse (as if name-calling and wild accusations can be dignified with such a term) is that what used to be considered traditional and commonplace thinking is now labeled as extremism and bigotry. A few examples:

- If you believe that the U.S. Constitution means only what it actually says, you are an extremist who ought to be wearing a powdered wig.

- If you believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one man and one woman, you are a homophobe and a bigot.

- If you think people should not be allowed to break into our country illegally, then get free education, health care and jobs and to march in our streets to protest the violation of their "rights," you are a racist, a xenophobe, and your state should be boycotted.

The good news is that we "hayseeds" -- that is, those of us who are not part of the rootless, cosmopolitan elite -- have endured so many accusations of "racism" that we're pretty much immune now. We've had enough, and change -- real change -- is going to come, no matter what our handlers have to say about it.

Yessir. It's about time dispossessed founder-stock Americans start thinking of ourselves as an ethnic community. We need to look out for our brothers and sisters, and we need to form communities/enclaves, and we ned to get territorial.

I have said it before and I will say it again..

Pedophilia and necrophilia will become the norm as in gay marriage and sooner than we think.

Can bestiality be far behind?


PS King James I was a pedophiliac.

Good changes won't come as a result of votes cast to displace one big government candidate with another, as some in the Tea Party believe. Good changes won't come through marginalizing our communities and building fences, although I too long for living in a community where I know my neighbors share my culture and values.

Good changes will only come when most Americans again realize that decentralized government, sound money, dismantling of empire, and an end to corporatism (a national poison set in motion by Hamilton and Lincoln) will lead to more business formation, employment, and real wages for working people. We will keep more of what we earn.

It will take a Revolution of thought to inspire a real political Revolution. That all starts with education. Teach your kids, friends, and open minded neighbors.

Well I happen to think that although wearing powdered wigs is a little strange, some of those guys were pretty smart and nobody has seemed to improve on what they did.

Though a lot of really dumb or misinformed people think they can.
