America Was Cool; Enjoy the Last Few Months of It, Kids

Now that the Democrats have ended the well-catered pillow delivery they called a “sit-in,” America can get back to the business of self-loathing regarding our presidential election choices. That task is so time-consuming that we really don’t have many moments to ponder what comes after November.

As I emotionally checked out of the upcoming election a while ago, I’ve had time to ponder the future and can only say that if America isn’t presently in the throes of its death rattle, it is probably still prudent to begin searching for good hospice care.

Until just a few months ago, I was one of those red, white, and blue optimists who firmly believed that the United States could survive damage done by whatever idiots an apathetic electorate put in charge. I terribly underestimated two things: the Democrats’ contempt for the Constitution and the Republicans’ commitment to losing, even when they win.

Now that we’re about three quarters through an elaborate falling dominoes design that will probably end up looking like a hammer and sickle, all I have to say is that you should enjoy the last few months of America because there is one thing of which I am now certain: the republic as we have enjoyed it will cease to exist after the next election.

No, I don’t mean “America” will be gone, rather the America we’ve known.

Toast.

Kaput.

Put a “Che” shirt on it.

The Democrats are presently waging war on the Fifth Amendment to satisfy their ideological blood lust for the Second. Rep. John Lewis, who as a young civil rights pioneer was watched by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI and also accidentally placed on a federal no-fly list despite being a veteran member of Congress, is now a champion of using secret FBI lists to strip away Second Amendment rights. I’ll run off and make a cup of coffee while you let that sink in.

Make no mistake, once the due process rights are gone, it’s “knock on your door in the middle of the night” justice time. In fact, I wasn’t really worried about the country’s future until the Dems became so open and casual about their disregard for due process. They’ll say it’s just about guns, but reality-based people know that there has never been a time when the federal behemoth opted for moderation when given any kind of leeway.

One might think that the leftist contempt for the Constitution couldn’t be that far ranging -- they must still like free speech, right?
