We used to be a nation of laws. Today, we are a nation of lies. From the "president" and his appointees and hired thugs on down, there has not been an utterance in the past five years that has not been lies, or at best, a rank distortion of the truth. The Democrat Party has followed the "president's" lead, making wild, fantastic charges and slander the rule for their public statements. Of late, the Republican misleadership, aka the Republican Establishment, has taken to lying as grossly as the Democrats, all of whom now are attacking American citizens who still believe in government the Constitution and the Rule of Law.

This Memorial Day we would do well to remember not just the brave men and women who have served our nation so well over the past 239 years, but the principles and documents that institutionalized the reason they were willing to fight and, if need be, die. Our freedom, our liberty, as clearly delineated in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, is under attack as never before in our history, but this time the attack is from within. And this time, few are fighting back.

Since the murder of John F. Kennedy, a conservative Democrat president, we have seen a succession of more and more leftist presidents, and sat idly by as the radical left took over the Democrat Party. This has culminated in the election (by massive voter fraud, by the way) of an outright Marxist to the presidency. The platform of the Democrat Party of today is the manifesto of the New Left of the 1960s. Obama and the cadre of Marxists he has staffed his administration with have made communist revolutionary Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals their bible, and have brought his formula for revolution to fruition:

"How To Create a Social State

by Saul Alinsky

There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people

2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)

6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion – Remove the belief in God from the Government and schools

8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor."

And what were supposedly conservative Republicans doing while this juggernaught of sedition was being turned into "legitimate" politics? Why, they were ever-so-busy allowing the neo-fascists behind the "progressive" movement, born in that evil year of 1913, to take over their party. The so-called Rockefeller Republicans were not moderates, they were fascists, and now, as the "Establishment," they dominate the "leadership" of the party.

The only real difference between the two parties today is that is that...well, darn...when you look at where they want to take the country, there really isn't any difference. Both want a leviathan totalitarian police state, ruled by a permanent elite political class – a new aristocracy – with the rest of us there to provide the labor and the money, via taxes, for them to live a lavish and privileged lifestyle. They merely differ on the details of how to get there.

I think We, the People, are na´ve if we truly think we can take back our government and restore adherence to the Constitution through the election of a few Tea Party supported conservatives. Congress has become thoroughly corrupted, as have the judiciary and executive branches. Our Attorney General was convicted of criminal contempt of Congress two years ago, and not only still holds his office, but continues to flout the laws he is supposed to be in charge of enforcing, without consequence. This situation epitomizes the willful collaboration of the two parties in undermining the Rule of Law.

America has become polarized beyond reconciliation, much less compromise. The left has no problem forcing us to pay for them to murder unborn children, but demands that those who rape, torture, and murder not be subjected to a second of pain when executed for their heinous crimes. They demand that law abiding citizens be disarmed, but do nothing to disarm criminals. They demand we give better healthcare and welfare benefits to criminals who have entered our country illegally, than to our military veterans who risked their lives to defend the freedom of the rest of us. And on and on and on, ad nauseam.

Yes, radical Islam abroad is a real threat. Yes, China and Russia are real threats. But the most dangerous threat of all is right here at home, living high in Washington, D.C. Radical threats demand radical solutions. This is our last chance.
