Lurching into a Constitutional Crisis

It seems clear that with the Boehner lawsuit and 13th unanimous Supreme Court defeat for the Obama administration that our tyrant has finally hit the limits of the power that the other coequal branches are willing to cede him.  He insists that these matters are a joke, calling the lawsuit a “stunt”( 

Obama seems determined to continue down this path, banking on the ignorance of the American people of the proper role of the executive and the purposeful design of gridlock-

Available polling suggests that Americans support the concept of a president acting unilaterally to achieve policy ends that can’t be accomplished legislatively because of gridlock.

-and so it seems that the lack of quality history education, so vigorously pursued by the progressive education establishment, is paying of in this instance.

But what happens if the lawsuit succeeds?  What if Congress rediscovers the power of the purse?  Or if Obama decides to overrule an S.C. decision?  How does this play out.  We stand at the precipice.  Any further and there is no option for recovering our birthright and our Constitution other than that reserved to us by the Declaration of Independence: 

When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.


The tyrant must be resisted.  The republic must be restored.  It is not yet too late.

Why Cato?

August 2, 2012 Leave a comment

Cato was the name I chose for a multitude of reasons.

Cato the Younger was a Roman senator in the last days of the Republic.  He warned his fellow Romans of the danger Caesar posed to the Republic and fought to save it.  He also despised the omnipresent corruption of the elites.

I also chose Cato because he has long served as a muse to Americans with republican (not Republican) principles, from Samuel Adams, also known as the American Cato, Cato’s Letters, actually written by Englishmen, but which served as inspiration for the American rebellion, and Joseph Addison’s play Cato, A Tragedy, which was a favorite of George Washington’s, and may have inspired many of the most famous quotes of the Revolutionary Era.

Like Cato, Adams, and the American Revolutionaries, I feel that we live in a very dangerous time.  Creeping tyranny is a very real threat, and our basic liberties are very much threatened.  Yelling at the television is no longer enough.  This lonely blog is little and not especially public, but at least I am no longer silent.

The ‘red pill’ and its opposite, ‘blue pill,‘ are pop culture terms that have become symbolic of the choice between blissful ignorance (blue) and embracing the sometimes-painful truth of reality (red). It’s time for America to take the red pill and wake up from the fog of apathy.
