Odds are Chairman Obama will be replaced in 2012, and assuming the RINO herd doesn't throw a socialist-lite wrench in the works, our Dear Leader will be replaced by a Conservative. (I have my favorites, you have your favorites. This column is not, and never will be about, shilling for candidates. For the rest of this article, this person will be known as "Generic Conservative".)
Obviously, that would be a good thing. Now, more than ever, the United States needs the common sense solutions that only Conservativism can supply. We don't simply need another Ronald Reagan. We need Ronald Reagan on steroids with Barry Bonds as his personal trainer.
Assuming Generic Conservative does end Chairman Obama's Reign of Incompetent Terror in 2012, all of the problems I've listed above will still be there, eating away at the Republic. On top of all of that ,there will be another problem. I fear this problem will be worse than the ones listed above.
The 2+2=5 far left will become violent and this could plunge the nation into chaos.
I know, I know. I'm not Glenn Beck. My tinfoil hat is too tight. Blah, blah, blah. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Got it. But understand this: We no longer live in a time that allows to shrug our shoulders and say, "Naaah. That couldn't happen here." We live in times that force us to say, "I hope to God that isn't true."
Check this out:
“[I] want to focus on one particular suggestion you had about using the wonderful digital tools that are newly available for the reinvigoration of democracy. Now, they have been around for a while, but they are spreading far and wide and more people are getting involved. We need to have an American spring — you know, the Arab spring. The non-violent part of it isn’t finished yet, but we need to have an American spring, a kind of an American non-violent change where people on the grassroots get involved again. Not the, you know, not in the Tea Party-style.” ---Former Vice President Al Snore, in an interview with his new puppet, Keith Olbermann.
Let that sink in for a moment. This is a former Vice President of the United States calling for the same kind of revolution that we saw in the Middle East that has brought Libya to a civil war, Egypt to a military dictatorship, and the beginnings of civil war in Syria, Bahrain, and Yemen.
Now, we have already seen beginnings of this in Wisconsin. Check out what I found at the International Socialist Review, as the author describes the protests against Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and his plan to have state workers contibute to their own health care and retirement:
The occupation [empahsis added] of the Capitol building began on Tuesday night, with hundreds of protesters staying inside demanding to testify before the Joint Finance Committee, which was required to hold hearings on the bill. The occupation [empahsis added] was initiated by students, but soon had enthusiastic labor participation, with particular unions designating certain nights for their members to sleep over.
This huge and militant [emphasis added] response led all 14 Democrats in the Wisconsin Senate to leave the state on the third day of the protests, depriving Republicans of a quorum necessary to pass Walker’s bill. For nearly three weeks the legislature was gridlocked. In response to threats of layoffs, the South Central Federation of Labor passed a resolution saying that it would support a general strike. Others pointed out that the budget deficit would disappear if corporations and the wealthy paid their fair share of taxes.
The mood to escalate action was there [emphasis added], but union leaders were terrified of things going too far. From the beginning most said they would accept the economic concessions contained in Walker’s bill in exchange for the preservation of collective bargaining and other union rights, sacrificing their members’ paychecks to defend their own positions.
After the teachers returned to work, union officials were unwilling to call more job actions, and instead starting channeling resources into recall campaigns against eight GOP senators. This allowed Walker to wind down the occupation [emphasis added] by slowly making access to the Capitol more difficult. Rallies continued outside, but on March 9, in a legislative maneuver, the Senate detached the anti-union sections from the rest of Walker’s bill and voted to pass them without the Democrats present.
The result was a huge and spontaneous outburst of anger around the city. Several thousand of us retook [emphasis added] the State Capitol in the early evening, climbing through windows and pushing past cops [emphasis added], who eventually gave up trying to stop people from entering. The mood was electric, and the many teachers who had joined the occupation were waiting for word from their union to walk off the job again the next day. If that had happened, other workers might have joined them."

Now, if you add the above to the left's history of violence (Lee Harvey Oswald, the Weather Underground, Sirhan Sirhan, the Unabomber, the G8 riot in Pittsburgh, just to name a few examples) to the attitude I've illustrated above, Generic Conservative is going to have his or her hands full, especially if he or she must make an economic decision the far left doesn't like. Washington DC will turn into Athens at very best or Tripoli at very worst.
Dark days are ahead.
God help us all.
