“I am only walking as God fore-ordained I should walk. All my actions, even the folly leading to this disaster, were decreed to happen long ages before this world began. But I cannot remember a night so dark as to have hindered the coming days, or a storm so furious as to prevent the return of warm sunshine in the country at peace. I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land can never be purged away but with blood. I let them hang me. I forgive them and may God forgive them, for they know not what they do.” ~ Raymond Massey as John Brown, Santa Fe Trail, Warner Bros. Pictures, 1940
Monday has been a frightful day, but the morrow brings me grave concern. Tonight is the eve of the horrible US Presidential election of 2016 and what we have witnessed thus far is sickening.
At what point did either of the Canned-I-Dates ever address the issues concerning the citizens of this once great Republic? These past months have been merely a stage for two half-assed actors, seemingly vying for the worst Rotten Tomatoes award that could ever be given. “Tit for Tat“, “He said, She said.” “He did – she did.”
Oh what marvelous examples we have ‘chosen’ for our children and grandchildren to look… down upon.
Of course the media has played their dirty hands oh so well – reporting on absolutely NOTHING meaningful – just “Pussy’s and Weiners galore – oh my!”
The emails, the tax returns, the Foundations and the coverups by the FBI, Obama, Lynch, the media (mea culpa) – and it will never end – no matter who is announced the winner about 24 hours from the time I am writing this. Or will it be resolved by then? What happens if it goes to the Supreme Court as it did with Bush and Gore in 2000?
Only eight currently sit upon that throne – and Roberts cannot be trusted. But what if their decision is locked in a virtual tie? Ahhh – the proverbial coin-toss. “Heads I win, Tails you lose!”
I need not expound anymore time on the subject, but to consider that America may in fact be headed toward ‘Harper’s Ferry‘ once more – for the beginning of a Civil War – the likes of which we have never experienced.
“Never experienced? Bennett, what the hell are you talking about? Back in 1861…”
“Shush – THAT was not a civil war. In fact, no war is ever civil. No – what you are speaking of, is the War of Northern Aggression – but that is a story for another day… Or read the works of Ross or Gaddy. Or pick up a copy of “AMERICA: The Grand Illusion, Book II ~ What God has Joined“.
No matter which of the candidates are declared the winner – America ultimately is the loser, and yet we share this bit of (slightly altered) dialog from the annals of the golden age of Hollywood. Speaking in regards to abolitionist, John Brown (who is about to be hung), our character (played by the still living Olivia de Havilland) states;
“I’m not crying for him. I see something else up there – something more terrible than one man…or one woman” – Olivia de Havilland as fictional character, “Kit Carson Halliday,” Santa Fe Trail, Warner Bros. Pictures, 1940
I’ll see you on the battlefields at Sundown my friends. It is just around the corner…
Without Apology I am,
