Friends, Romans, Countrymen

So it’s about to be crunch time, and we’d like to open with a quote from LC and IB Socklessjoe in this most excellent post that deserves to be read in its entirety:

Donald Trump is a despicable human being. He’s not a conservative. His policies, to the extent that they have any consistency, stand no chance making America great again. I would not trust him alone in a room with any woman I cared about.

And yet, I am voting for Trump. Simply put, a Hillary Clinton presidency would signify the end of the republic as we know it.

Now, we can’t say that we share the visceral hatred and disdain for Trump, but we certainly can say that he never was our first choice.

And we can also say for sure that we share Socklessjoe’s conclusion.

Those are the two choices we have. It’s going to be one of the two, no matter what, there is no door number three. Egg McMuffin isn’t it, Jill Commiestein and that clueless “libertarian” whose name keeps eluding us isn’t either. Stop deluding yourselves.

That being said, it is certainly your right to vote for any of them, we don’t dispute that, and we won’t hate you in the morning for doing so. It’s a personal choice, and only you get to make it. Just don’t delude yourselves about the stakes here. Please. We beg you.

As Sockless describes in great detail in his post (again, please read it), we’re at a fork in the road. If Felonia v. Pantsuit wins, the Republic is no more. Sure, the United States will still be around, but it will no more be a Republic than Rome was one under Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus and thereafter.

As we have witnessed in example after example over the past eight years, the United States under the ProgNazi party is not a nation of laws. Well, it is, sort of. Two sets of them. One for us Dirt People and one for the Cloud People in the Imperial Capital, Washington DC. Giving the horrid monster that is Hillary! four more years to solidify this will end the Republic, and it will take quite a bit more than a ballot box to restore it. Just ask the Romans who tried to bring the Republic back through the centuries after Augustus’ rise to power how well that turned out for them.

Will Trump be able to turn that around? We, honestly, doubt it. But we’d rather take a peaceful shot at redemption than surrender to the absolute certainty of tyranny that will be the end result of letting the ProgNazis rule another four years.

Those are the stakes.

Tiberius Gracchus or Caligula.

Pick one.

But, most of all, pick something. Because if you sit this one out on Tuesday, then not only are you like to find this Emperor’s caligae so far up your arse that you’ll be able to clip our toenails with your teeth, you’ll also have forfeited any right to piss and moan about the results, no matter what they may turn out to be.

So vote.

VOTE!

Thatisall.

    Want another reason to vote Trump?

    Comey will be fired and Felonia will be prosecuted. (With a little luck, they will prosecute Comey for obstruction of justice)

    I posted something similar here: http://thedeclination.com/the-unpredictability-of-tuesday-november-the-8th/

    Note that I’m not exactly a member of the Trump fan club either, though I’ve come around to grudgingly respecting him instead of loathing him as I once did. Watching him fight the Left this election has made me wonder why we couldn’t get a genuine conservative to fight as he has. These kinds of stones were pointedly missing in 2008 and 2012.

    I jumped on Trumpforce One back in February. We haven’t had a genuine conservative in the White House since Ronald Reagan. After Reagan left office in triumph, George H.W. Bush and the rest of the Country Club GOP(e) scum came in and promptly began undoing everything Reagan did.
    Remember Bush’s “New World Order” speech?

    By the way a little good news over the weekend. The previous Attorney general for the Clintons, Janet Reno, won’t be down for breakfast. With a little luck, she’s getting her chestnuts roasted over an open fire.

    President Hillary Clinton

    Get your ass out of that fucking chair and vote. Get your friends and your family and anyone you know and get out of the fucking house and down to the voting station. Sit at home and do nothing..trust me you dont want to know where that road leads.

    We’ve already been told that it was the most important thing ever to face Obama in 2008 to thwart Hillary, then immediately thereafter it was the most important thing ever to defeat Obama in 2008, then it was the most important thing ever to elect the GOP in 2010 to stop Obama, then it was the most important thing ever to defeat Obama in 2012, then it was the most important thing ever to elect the GOP in 2014 to stop Obama, and now we’ve literally come full circle to it being the most important thing ever to thwart Hillary. All of those prior most important things ever either didn’t happen, or happened but failed entirely.

    The simple fact is this – if Hillary really will destroy the nation (like Obama was going to before her – and credit where it’s due, he did a pretty good job), then she can’t be allowed to see the sun rise tomorrow. However, everyone knows that won’t happen. If something is truly the mostest importantest thing evar, then there is literally no point that cannot be gone beyond to prevent it (or ensure it, for a positive action). But again: ain’t gonna happen.

    Lexington/Concord and what followed showed that that issue really was the most important thing. Secession/Ft. Sumter and what followed showed that that issue really was the most important thing. But this? If the most anyone can say is “Well, I put an X in a box on a voting machine,”…not the most important thing. At best, it’s just “Hey, it sure would be nice if we could keep her away from power, but if she gets it, well…at least we tried.”

    Either shit or get off the pot.

    Either get up off your rear and vote or sit in a corner for the next four years and shut up. No one is saying its perfect, I’m saying the battle is lost or won by who shows up.

    Your nation your destiny…your rights…your call.

    The last person who cast a vote that mattered was Oswald, and look what happened to him.

    The man that stayed at home saying his vote wouldnt matter..was right. It didnt matter..because he didnt cast it. A right is a waste if it not exercised…a voice is never heard if no words are spoken.

    Whether you choose to exercise your franchise is your business. If you choose not to…then dont ever expect any sympathy from me if things go pear shaped. You are one man one vote..correct…and so is the next guy and the next guy and the next guy and….put them all together and you get the votes that tip the balance.

    “For want of a nail” Remember that old rhyme? Well guess what..they’re singing it now.

    Down at the polling booth. So tell me Fa Cube..whats it going to be.

    Go down there and teach them a new song? Or stay at home and pretend you cant hear the music?

    Over to you.

    Sorry, but you’ve got it backwards. If you buy a house and it falls apart, do you sue the contractor who didn’t build it? If you participate in the system, then you are part of it. Any vote at all is a vote for whichever candidate wins – by participating, you endorse the result, whatever it may be. A vote IN a corrupt system is a vote FOR the corrupt system.

    Government derives its legitimacy from the consent of the governed. I don’t consent. And guess what – millions don’t consent. Even in a landslide victory with high turnout, vastly more people didn’t vote for the winner than did. Assume this election brings 60% turnout and the winner takes 60% of the vote. Well, they now have a whopping 36% of the country supporting them. Not exactly a mandate, is it? Oh sure, they’ll claim a mandate, but the fact of the matter is that whatever the final percentages are, between 2/3 and 3/4 of the nation will not have voted for whichever one ends up President.

    And even then, every vote *still* doesn’t count. The only votes that will decide the election are those in a few toss-up states. Realistically, the voters in that small number of states are the ones who elect the President. Theirs are the only votes that “count.”

    So yes, in the end, deciding whether or not to vote is your business. But if you vote, you accept that the question posed by the election (in the US, it’s been globalist totalitarianism vs. better-managed socialism for decades) is a valid one. In one sense, I’m lucky – I live in an area where I *know* any vote I might cast is utterly irrelevant. It’s a grim luxury at best.

    All I will say in reply is that, for good or for ill, I have voted in every election, state, federal, local, since I turned 18.

    The right to vote is also a responsibility, and one I have never shirked. Whether my vote mattered in the end is irrelevant..to me, that i carried out that civic duty and exercised that right, is what is important.

    There are plenty of nations where you dont vote at all.

    You do as you see fit. It’s your country. Your future.
