“Taking the country back” is a common theme on conservative web sites these days. I’ve always found it a little funny that those on the left want to take the country back from those on the right, and those on the right want to take it back from those on the left.
I was slumming over at the Dr. Kate’s View blog, and she has some writing about taking the country back. She has some videos posted about strategy. In another article she give some definite steps, prefacing them with:
The Constitution doesn’t need to be thrown out, the federal government does.
We held municipal elections in this area yesterday. They remind me of how Americans have always “thrown the bums out” when we become dissatisfied with the government. Even an insanely crazy idea such as Barack Obama being born in Africa gets traction through the Internet even though it’s universally panned by the media. There’s nothing to stop any grass roots movement from taking over the country – except apathy and that’s not the government’s fault.
Nevertheless, Dr. Kate doesn’t seem to be aware of the electoral process because her way of throwing out the federal government is to demand that they resign. That’s pretty silly don’t you think? Why would the federal government resign because some crank hydrologist says so on her web site? Dr. Kate makes a big deal of how the US Constitution is “law” but she doesn’t seem to believe in it. She would rather people take to the streets with demands than go vote the way the Constitution says.
It’s all just angry talk She can have her manifesto –I have my vote.
