"Civil War" -- insightful & thought provoking commentary...

Dr. Jack D. Minzey died Sunday, 8 April 2018

Jack was head of the Department of Education at Eastern Michigan University as
well as author of numerous books, most of which were on Education and the
Government's role.

This is the last of his works:

Civil War...
How do civil wars happen?

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 it 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 with him

who also are NOT in the club.

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... WON.  

Have no doubt. We are in a civil war.

 This war is between conservative volunteer government
      and a leftist Democrat professional government.

There's a whole lot of truth in this. It's just a matter of time before the wrong situation gets out of hand. Just be sure you are prepared for it.

I agree with this gentleman 100%. It a shame his voice cannot continue to be heard.

I've been prepared for a while now , I just feel sorry for the ones who cannot prepare because of financial difficulties. Plenty of food , plenty of water , plenty of batteries and plenty of ammo.

A fella by the name of Daniel Greenfield attributed this to Dr. Minzey who did not author this.

The shooting hasn't started yet but it will, most likely when the Republicans have Gov. Jerry Brown arrested and jailed for not working with ICE.

Regardless of the author, it bears a lot of truth.

When there aren't any rules, morality, or respect, and NOTHING is "wrong" (it's just you being you, that's all), society crumbles.
It never happens overnight. It's slow, but steady.
No laws, no borders, no police, no rules, no one judges right or wrong.

It eventually collapses into chaos and anarchy. Like Chicago is doing right now....
History shows it over and over and over again and yet we STILL have idiots who think it can't, or won't, happen here.
THEY will be victims.
LOTS of victims.
As John Wayne once said, "Life is tough, but it's a lot tougher when you're stupid".
Keep cheering.
