3 The Cold War years were also dark years.

I think we still have a fighting chance. It will simply get more painful the longer we avoid dealing with our fiscal issues, and beating back the Executive to its rightful place.

I envision a future for this nation which will be full of misery and death. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see how the financial numbers can tell a different story.

5 Sometimes i think this is mainly us worried, Look a lot of the people that voted for this are people that wouln't have known what it was like to live 35 years ago .

maybe this generation won't be as devastated by the loss of what they never knew.

Our problem is not the fiscal issues. It is that the electorate is so stupid as to create the fiscal issue problem. Too many of them know so little about economics that they think printing money will solve the problem.

The Demographics are on a collision course. The Stupids against the Sensible, with the numerical advantage on the side of the stupids.

I didn't like Romney either. I always thought that I would come to regret having voted for him because I was confident at some point in the future, he would stab the base in the back. North Eastern Country Club Republicans (Rockefeller wing) can be counted on to do this.

But for the shenanigans which occurred in the Virginia primary, Romney likely wouldn't have been our candidate.

They kicked everybody but Romney and Ron Paul off of the primary ballot in Virginia. Party officials in Virginia made a last minute rule change requiring more signatures than in years previously, and only Ron Paul and Romney could make it under the new rules. Perry and Newt were kicked off the ballot. Of course this is an abbreviated explanation of what happened.

I saw it as intentional meddling by Virginia Republican party officials to gift the Virginia Primary to Romney. This is the point where Romney broke away from the pack.

Our future is to become like Argentina.

Look at them now and compare them to what they were a century ago. They were poised (poised!) to become a very prosperous economic power in the New World in the first few decades of the 20th century. And Peron and his followers, and then Evita, ruined the country's economics with Fabian populist socialism, all in the name of getting and keeping power. Loot everything, turn people against each other.....profit!

The Clintons were the Peronsin this country. Barry is "Evita".

What followed were various attempts at restoration, military juntas, more "bad democracy", and at this point, a country (Argentina)that should be wealthy, but is politically and economically corrupted by a lot of "bad" popular beliefs.

This is where we are headed. It's not just "low information voters", it is people who are willfully wrong about basic premises of human existence and basic and painfully learned lessons of economics. And I am not talking just about Free Market economics, but the basic nature of interpersonal exchanges that take place every day. This is where Marxism, Leninism and Maoism are dead wrong about how people normally behave with each other.

This is why Bloomberg is such a repugnant facist, because he wants to micromanage the affairs of millions of New Yorkers, and they are apparently "OK" with it. Because the majority of them are sheep.

Willfully ignorant sheep. This is the material we have to work with. The Inheritors of the Republic.

Everytime I see some slacker teenager just behaving like some empty headed goof, I always remember they are the Inheritors of the Republic.

98 I'm re-printing this from yesterday. Reince Preibus wrote asking me for money. This is what I told him:

No. You will get no more money from me. Not until the Republican Party starts showing some spine. Not until it enforces the discipline to speak with one voice in order to counter the media’s bias (you ever hear of talking points? Guess what. They work. Just listen to the Democrats). Not until it starts acting as if it understands that it’s in a knife fight and its opponents – the Democrats – are in it to win. At all costs. Not until it understands that its opponents operate in bad faith, with every single word and every single action they take. There is no collegiality at work here. There is no comity regardless of what Senator McCain might think. There is only an enemy that wants to destroy you and the American way of life. And they are winning.
Show me you understand that the only reason the Democrats haven’t outlawed the Republican Party is because they still need a few more votes to do it. But they’re working on it. Diligently and relentlessly.
Show me that you understand all that and I will again support you financially. Otherwise, leave me alone.

103 Fuckbama won against all precedence, beginning with the fact that no one has ever one re-election without winning MORE states, and he got less, nor with the GDP and unemployment rates being what they are.

If that's not an indication that our nation is in its death throes I don't know what is. The smartest among us will make preparations to uproot themselves and get the fuck to whatever state is likely to survive the imminent collapse, stockpile on ammo and whatever has commodity value and get ready for the civil war.

On the upside, we should win it easily since the left shit their pants at the sight of guns. Still I'd nuke all the bluest cities from orbit just to be sure.

172 Looking for 20-60 acres in a spot rated well for wind that's not out in west TX or the panhandle because, my God, the desolation. THAT'S a feature, not a bug!

The panhandle isn't all bad. Look for something around Amarillo near Ceta Canyon. Ceta Canyon is a beautiful gash in the middle of nothing.

173 Is there a part of Texas that's fairly robust when it comes to manufacturing and distribution companies? Food service or medical products? I'm asking for a friend. :-/

When I lived in Oklahoma as a kid, I rarely ever told that old joke about how to get to Texas from California, (Head east until you smell cow shit, then south until you step in it). So they have to let me in too!

177 I got my H-D up to exactly 100mph on an empty stretch of Utah highway last summer. All tough talk aside, that was plenty fast enough for me.

I hit 135 in an Audi A8. I had a lot left but I chickened out just thinking, fuck if I get pulled over I might go jail. At 135 it felt as solid as at 75. The engine actually hummed nicer than at 75, it's like the car was happy to be going that fast. One of these days I'll do what I keep saying I'll do....go to Germany rent a Porsche and drive up and down the Autobahn for a week (at least the areas where it's unlimited speed which is getting to be smaller and smaller).

In 1968 we were flush with cash. Cash fixes a lot of shit.

Now we're flush with shit and way the hell south of flat broke.

If the cities go up in flames this summer, there will be no putting them out.

Posted by: Jaws at February 27, 2013 05:54 PM (4I3Uo)

181 I feel the need for speed.

My personal best:
105mph on a motorcycle and 115mph in a car and once as a hitchhiker at 135 (hey that's what the speedo said) in a Dodge Charger. A real one from the '70's.

Passing trucks like they were standing still.

It's a thrill everyone should have.

The area around Amarillo is gorgeous. My boss bought an 80,000 acre ranch there I had to go look at and run title on. One of the better places I've been stuck at.

184 To each his own I guess, I like listening to Levin, reading a transcript doesn't really relate the passion. I don't know of any other conservative radio host that relates that passion for conservatism and liberty. Rush maybe.
Posted by: Guy Mohawk at February 27, 2013 05:42 PM (p/cQy)

Guy-Levin is my favorite. One of the other commenters here wrote about Mark's Landmark Legal Foundation and what he's tried to help us with, fighting Ocare, etc. He's doing that on a volunteer basis. I have never heard him ask for a donation, at least on his show.

So sorry you guys. It sucks when you just want to enjoy a cutting session with Levin playing softly in the background and then some other guy totally ruins it.

189 I didn't like Romney either. I always thought that I would come to regret having voted for him because I was confident at some point in the future, he would stab the base in the back. North Eastern Country Club Republicans (Rockefeller wing) can be counted on to do this.

But for the shenanigans which occurred in the Virginia primary, Romney likely wouldn't have been our candidate.

Posted by: DiogenesLamp at February 27, 2013 05:22 PM (bb5+k)

Those shenanigans are called rules. It wasn't Romney's fault the other candidates couldn't be bothered to read and follow them. As a VA resident, I wasn't thrilled with my options, but, hey, read the rules.

190 Louisana tries, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska may go. I know Louisiana will follow TX.

OK will go but we have a chick for a governor so it'll take her a bit to put on her makeup and find the right dress, but if TX goes, the people of OK will insist we go with them.

Who knows. OK may be the first to leave and everyone will be following us. After all. We're the only state that went 100% red this last election.

Posted by: lilredhen at February 27, 2013 05:57 PM (6cCYx)

The rules were changed, that year, and with short notice. They were also designed to allow Romney's signatures to be adequate without being checked, but required his primary opposition members to have all of their signatures checked for validity.

If you think this is just a case of "rules" you don't really understand the details of what happened.


Posted by: DiogenesLamp at February 27, 2013 06:03 PM (bb5+k)

196 Beaumont has got to be the worst city in Texas.

Beaumont itself is pretty awful. Their school district fiasco alone would prevent me from living there. Check out the Mid-County area or farther north. Lumberton is growing. I would say that Brownsville wins the worst city in TX.

Posted by: no good deed at February 27, 2013 06:04 PM (mjR67)

197 Someone got the VA primary story entirely wrong. VA was part of Super Tuesday, to blame "Romney pulling away on VA is nonsense, he also won almost every other ST state.

And the "last minute rule change" was by Cuccinelli to try and get Perry et al on the ballot. The court struck it down. I know since I was a Perry supporter living in VA when it all went down.

Newt and Santorum have no excuse for not getting the correct signatures considering they both live in the damn state.

I love it when people visit OKC in the summertime and sometimes the smell of oil from the various wells around the city start giving off their aroma. Visiters ask about the smell and I tell them that it's the smell of money.

I may be alone in this view but:


1. This is by far not the worst time in US history (see, e.g., Revolutionary War period, Articles of Confederation period, 1840s-1865, Great Depression/WWII era).

2. Instead of concentrating on leaving, lets start trying to win elections nationally.

3. Republicans (pushing conservative policies) do in fact control a majority of state legislative assemblies and governorships. At the state level we are starting to suceed in places we have not before (e.g., Wisconsin). I think the crappy candidates we have been fielding nationally have something to do with our national results.

4. From 1969 to 1993, Democrats held the White House for all of four years. From 1953 to 2009, Democrats held the White House for all of 12 years. These things cycle. We are definitely on a down cycle, and our national GOP leadership stinks right now. But things will change.

5. LBJ killed Goldwater in '64. But then Reagan started his rise. And at least from 1981 to 2001, the path of the country was more conservative (and yes, I think Clinton was pushed to adopt more Conservative fiscal policies because of Republicans in Congress).

204 Start locally, clearing out the deadwood. KS got rid of a number of RINOs in the state Legislature, and now there is movement on state saving (conservative) bills.

Be like Texas in your own state.

207 Here's what I want: a state where you can own waterfront property, have a boat in the water and a dock, maybe a little boat rental business, without having to deal with DNR. My place on the river here was a donation land claim, pre statehood, but it seems that having a dock or a boat in the water is only for wealthy people with expensive lawyers in WA state

Posted by: notsothoreau at February 27, 2013 09:05 PM (5HBd1)

208 Oh, and just a reminder: when I grew up in OK in the 50s, there really wasn't a Republican party there. It was all strictly Dems. You can change a state's colors but it's not easy.

Posted by: notsothoreau at February 27, 2013 09:18 PM (5HBd1)

209 Okay Iget it. So what does Mark propose we do? What do any of you propose we do now that we are staring into the stark reality of republic destruction? More talk I suppose about better candidates and cracker jack organizing. It seems to me that we are rapidly approaching a decision point or a point of no return. I suggest some serious soul searching so everyone can decide just what they can do and what they will do to turn this thing around.

Posted by: nuclearjim at February 27, 2013 10:19 PM (DNXMs)

210 How many more elections will we have where people can vote multiple times for a candidate or military votes don't count at all? Something is very very sinister when nothing is done to make sure it doesn't happen again anywhere in America. When 110% of citizens vote in a district, the whole batch of votes (for that district) should not be counted.
