Pat Buchanan and Ralph Nader are saying it. Liberals and libertarians are seeking to forge an alliance on the issues they share: pro-isolationism, pro-drugs and a curious sort of anti-corporate anti-capitalism that promises to leave us isolated, stoned and economically fractured; a useful state and easy pickings for that big "world government with teeth" the pope, trade unions, eco-activists, progressive socialists, the international communist party and the newly invigorated high church/ecumenical/charismatic "Christian" coalition have been calling for of late.
Such a world government
has long been seen as necessary by the Old World, if only to keep the uppity Americans in line and to at last
bring them back into submission. Better to end the 2 century long
American experiment in human liberty that has for so long impaired the rights and
privileges of the world's natural noble classes, than to endure the continued existence of such a place as America. The very existence of a land of liberty and opportunity in the world disturbs the masses and makes them discontented, restless and unwilling to submit to their natural lords and masters. It's little wonder that the "rest of the world" hates us. We make it so hard for the nobles to govern. I am certain they would be very happy for this new liberal/libertarian coalition to succeed.
If anybody thinks the far left is going to hold hands and march happily off
into the utopian sunset with the far right and forget all about
disarming the American populace, reducing them to a contented stupor
with sex, drugs and rock n' roll and then ringing down the curtain on
our American experiment with liberty, I've got a couple of bridge investments I can sell you. One day the political stoners that make up this bunch is
going to wake up in an Orwellian 1984/Brave New World with Big Brother
watching, medicating and finally euthanizing us when we aren't
The devil has been setting us up for this for centuries, but in the last
150 years, he's been ramping his deceptions up to a fever pitch; sending us Darwin, Marx, Progressivism, Socialism, Communism, Nazism, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Mussolini, Saddam and the Ayatollahs. And he's not done yet. He
knows he's running out of time. It's just a matter of watching for the next big thing that calls us to collective sacrifice for the so-called "greater good".
I have little doubt that this exciting
new left-right coalition will succeed. It includes all the people I've
feared the most and while most of them probably mean well, so do the folks who will
use them for their own purposes. After all, they truly believe they are special and should shoulder the terrible burden of deciding what the rest of us should do, how we should live and what we should believe.
The Second Coming is neither a conquest nor an occupation. It's a rescue
mission - in, out and gone before the world destroys itself in flames.
Before you libs (libertarian/liberals) start gloating about how many are "coming around" to
your version of "truth", you probably should take a hard look at what
your new partners really want before you sit down at the campfire with
them for a chorus of Kum-Ba-Yah and a pull at the hookah!
That's all I've got to say about that. - Forrest Gump
