This is an excellent, if concerning, historical perspective on the present state of our deep swamp government.

It's a good sign that some people are at least somewhat aware of the rot, and what really needs to be done to fix it.  Trump, for all his faults, is likely the best choice right now to push the leviathan government in the right direction.

  ....then I remembered something from an article on the fall of the Roman Empire. And one of the key points from both that article and Bill Whittle’s videos on the cycles of civilizations was that the average Roman was ready to fight and die to protect Rome while the “silk robed sons of bitches” plotted to open the gates for the barbarians to come through.

Even then, however, had Rome maintained its full moral strength and commitment from its people from its heyday, I suspect Rome could have driven them back. But by that time not only had the leaders given up, but the average Roman had become so disillusioned with the corruption – ethical, moral, spiritual, and financial – riddling it from top down, they shrugged and said WHY BOTHER? And so Rome dissolved into fighting factions, and chaos reigned.
Today we see the corruption – ethical, moral, spiritual, and financial – in the fetid swamp of Washington, DC (the irony of that city being named after one of the absolute best of us is physically painful to me), but also in most state capitals (and even further down – I was just listening to a local talk show discussing the state police milking the public)… and it feels like a lot of people are starting to think WHY BOTHER? 


  1. That's a throw in the towel comment. Not me. Never.

  2. I'm the author. Thanks for liking my observation.

    @Keith: I'm not throwing in the towel. I'm pointing out - in the original essay I wrote - that there will be a lot of people who consider it. More, that getting people to give up is a deliberate Leftist goal.


  3. The mentality of many honest Americans is that the system is so irredeemable and corrupt that the ONLY feasible solution is to burn it all down and start over from scratch after eradicating the evil leftists wholesale....something THEY are actively planning to do to the conservative right as soon as they have adequate power and control.

  4. "We don't need no Water, let the Motherf*kker Burn,
    Burn, Motherf*kker, Burn"
    I have argued for a Long Time that the "Corruption" of the so-called "Elite" has long ago passed the point of No Return, and that the Correct Method is now to "Let it Burn" of its own accord. I do not consider myself a "throw in the towel, defeatist", but a Realist who sees this won't be "Fixed" by another Insider like Trump; the Enemy are 'within the Gates', courtesy of the (((usual suspects))) who cannot be Named. It WILL Collapse, the question is how Soon, and by Withdrawing Consent, Working outside of (((their))) Beast System, if enough people 'Down Tools' it hastens the Point in Time where there are not enough Productive People to support the Parasites.

  5. @Anonymous:

    You do realize that I, the person who wrote the initial piece, is one of (((them)))?

    Or is it possible you don't grasp that that we, like everyone else, have a spectrum of beliefs?

    It grieves me no end that so many of my Tribe are on the Left; that doesn't mean there aren't some of us on the Right.
