To Plan or Fail to Plan

In the Spirit of the Gracious and Compassionate

I propose a Continental Congress.

The corporate oligarchy has used the Republican Party to increase its control of this nation. They have opposed the unions. They have opposed FDR’s New Deal. They have opposed LBJ’s Great Society. And they opposed and continue to oppose everything that Obama did or tried to do.  They pit White against Black, Christian against Muslim, Straight against Gay, and everybody against immigrants. They hate women and children. And they want the poor to die.

They have stolen the federal government and most of the state governments. They now have control of the legislative, the executive, and the judicial branches of the federal government. And they are planning a Constitutional Convention.

There is talk of Impeachment.

In the presidential line of succession, there are eighteen (18) layers of unacceptable Republican miscreants who must be removed.

Impeachment will not remedy this situation.

There was an effort to have the Supreme Court nullify the 2016 election.

The Supreme Court refused to consider it.

To undo the successful and illegitimate Republican campaign to gain control of the government, we would need to nullify the national elections of 1968, 1972, 1980, 1984, 2000, and 2004. In every one of these elections, the Republicans used strategies of deceit and wrongful disenfranchisement.

Nullification is too extreme and yet still not adequate to remedy this situation.

For the last 49 years, believers in democratic government have been outflanked by a party — the Republican Party — that is at war with democratic government. The Democratic Party — which needs to stop being an instrument of corporate interests — has been waging politics, while the Republican Party has been waging war.

The best defense is a good offense.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

In order to avoid the twin and not necessarily alternate disasters of unbearable oppression and violent conflict, we must plan, prepare, and take pre-emptive action.

Ignorance and despair are our worst enemies.

We must study. We must have moral commitment and unrelenting determination. And we must act first, and force the enemies of democracy to react.

Study. Study. Study.

Form study groups. Study the history of this nation. Study the history of nations. Study the history of the nations in Europe and Africa from which most of our population is drawn.

Study strategy and the history of warfare. Be willing to engage in physical violence, if necessary, but have sufficient mastery of strategy to render physical violence a nonviable option for our adversaries. In the Revolutionary War, the colonists re-took Boston without firing a shot. How did they do that?

We must have faith, and avoid descending into the paranoia that destroys so many progressive efforts.

Reform must precede revolution. Otherwise, we replace one oppressive regime with another oppressive regime.

We must love God, and we must love each other. That is the basis for reform.

I propose a Continental Congress.
