It's Civil War

This is an accurate, brilliant, and very scary analysis of the State of our Country right now. The question is, "What do we do about it?" (I found it on r/The_Donald on Reddit.)


It's Civil War
(How do Civil Wars Happen?)
by Jack Minzey 


A few days ago, Jack Minzey, sent what was to be the final chapter in the long line of books and treatises which he had written.  Jack died on Sunday, 8 April 2018. Professionally, Jack was head of the Department of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as a prolific author of numerous books, most of which were on the topic of Education and the Government role therein.
His interest in Conservative Politics was exceeded only by his intellectual ability.
This is the last of his works.

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can't settle the question through elections because they don't even agree that elections are how you decide who's in charge. That's the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war. The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it's not the first time they've done this.

The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn't really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There's a pattern here. What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don't accept the results of any election that they don't win. It means they don't believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections. That's a civil war. There's no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice.

But the Democrats have rejected our system of government. This isn't dissent. It's not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think they're the worst thing that ever happened to the country. But then you work harder to win the next election.

When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don't win, what you want is a dictatorship. Your very own dictatorship. The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own.

Whenever Republicans exercise power, it's inherently illegitimate.

The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House.

So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can't scratch his own back without his say so, that's the civil war.

Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that's not the system that runs this country. The Democrat's system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country. 

If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is unlimited. He's a dictator.

But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can't do anything. He isn't even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented.

A Democrat in the White House has 'discretion' to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn't even have the 'discretion' to reverse him. That's how the game is played That's how our country is run. Sad but true, although the left hasn't yet won that particular fight.

When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren't even allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasn't allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries.

The Constitution has something to say about that. Whether it's Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land.

This is what I call a moving dictatorship. 

Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds. You can't serve in if you're not a member. If you haven't been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren't in the club. And Trump isn't in the club. He brought in a bunch of people who aren't in the club with him. Now we're seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail.

They use the tools of power to bring them down.

That's not a free country.

It's not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an 'insurance policy' against Trump winning the election.

It's not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition.

It's not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media.

It's not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn't supposed to win did.

Have no doubt, we're in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and a leftist Democrat professional government.

  1. There are several things that can be done but I have not seen the determination required to take the first and most critical step. Some people have, but most won't. The Democrat party and the Left are owned by the NEA and an alliance of self-declared intellectuals, such as journalists, college professors and certain politicians. They believe they have the mentally superior capacity to rule over everyone else and they drive this point home to children and young people every day without pause. They recruit by indoctrination and an appeal to the pride of those they teach and inform. To be counted as one of the elite, you must think like the elite.

    Obviously, I believe home schooling is step one. I did it for one of my four children after I discovered the hard way that the public schools could not be reformed from within. The resistance was far too great and deep within the system. But most parents will not home school because it requires a sacrifice they are not willing to make. But if the vast majority did home school, think of the impact on the public education system and the leftist parasites that feed off it and use it for recruiting and indoctrination. The NEA would collapse and Democrats would lose a huge funding base. While the recent Janus decision helps, it will not end the left's monopoly on public education.

    There are several other steps as well but again, these will be resisted, not just by politicians but by people who refuse to give up their middle class crumbs given them by government. These other ways can be elucidated, but not here with limited space.

    There's my 0.5 cents worth on how to start winning this civil war.

  2. So late response...but I entirely agree. Every single conservative/republican should remove their children from government schools. They should home-school, or form co-ops so that some can teach while others support.

  3. Tony, I'm interested in the rest of your ideas. Where can I find them??

  4. Wow !!! absolutely fantastic blog. I am very glad to have such useful information.
