In Colorado, and then in Maine, Donald Trump, the frontrunner in the upcoming Republican Presidential Primary, has been excluded from the ballot on the grounds that he waged an insurrection on January 6th 2021. In the event these decisions are allowed to stand, Trump will still almost certainly obtain his party's nomination. He would still however be excluded from the ballot come the general election, at which point the people of those states will have only Joe Biden to vote for, at least so far as viable candidates are concerned. Given recent electoral outcomes, the wrongful taking of just a few electoral votes may well sway the outcome, and that is, of course the whole entire point.

It is perhaps a bit cliche to note that the Democrat Party bears its name with no small degree of irony. They are adept strategists hell bent on the destruction of the United States and its dominant ethnic components. They care not for the principles they espouse, but only for the power to cause the damage they are driven to inflict. Spouting off faux high minded idealism about the founding fathers and the constitution, they disarm and silence the populace, deprive them of the last remnants of the constitutional order, and make cruel masters of liberated slaves.

Their devotion to protecting "democracy" extends only so far as it is defined as Democrat rule. Whether this be accomplished through unrealistic and dangerous campaign promises of utopian equality and abundance, suicidal mass immigration, criminal theft under cover of darkness, or brazen televised stunts like these, their singular drive is to impose their will upon the population. They allow nothing, and least of all the will of voters, to stand in the way of this pursuit.

Such malfeasance leaves serious men in a difficult position. It is a very serious crime to advocate the violent overthrow of government. United States Code Title 18 Section 2385 reads;

Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or

Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof—

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

Yet, such schemes raise the question about the origins of State power. If it is true that they "derive their just powers from the consent of the governed", and the consent is found to be lacking, then the powers wielded are not justly derived, and one lives in a state of anarchy. There is no government to speak of without a legitimate conferrence of authority, and this legitimacy is in all cases a matter of opinion.

Whatever the flaws of a democratic government, it has the quality of acceptance in near all cases. One who seeks to seize power against the popular will knows he will meet resistance from more than half the population, and smaller percentages than this have brought down the most powerful governments in mankind's history. Even in those cases where the election was won through fraud, such as in 2020, the mere uncertainty of the matter will typically diminish the will to resist sufficiently to maintain control.

But, if on the heels of such a fraud, after four years of watching the thief squander the Nation's resources on foreign accomplices, wild and brazen public acts of corruption are arrogantly advertised on the television, and the population is deprived their choice of ruler with all the certainty of sunrise and sunset, only force remains to quell rebellion. A man who endorsed the rebellion, whatever its legitimacy, would surely be prosecuted, and I'd of course commit no such offense myself.

But I might note my lack of ideas as to what other options a decent man would have in that case. To sit silent as his country was destroyed, and with it the future of his children, must haunt his thoughts with self condemnation at his own cowardice. He might prefer to die in just such a rebellion, if only to rid himself of the intrusive thoughts. To face death certain he had been worthy of his life, to know that he had done all he could for his family and his Nation.

He might consider fleeing, should that option not be closed off to him. This is not without appeal, to the extent there may be viable alternatives elsewhere. But for an American, no foreign land holds the same promise this one once did. To speak freely and carry a weapon sans the intent of an outlaw, was a unique and very appealing feature of this country not so long ago. This is not so much the case anymore, and what little remains of these qualities is at all times being placed in greater peril.

He might be justified to consider these relics of a bygone era. To accept that the best he can hope for now is to mind his Ps and Qs in a place where his means of defense are quite limited, but the government will at least not seize his child for sexual experiments. To live in a place where war is considered only to protect the interests of the country, and not as a perpetual state in service to blackmail and bribery.

But then there is the question of facing just such a war against his former homeland. If those who seized power are not stopped at home, they are unlikely to cease their meddling abroad. In what is most commonly referred to as America's Civil War, and may perhaps come soon to be known as the first of several, it has been said that brother fought against brother. In a world made ever smaller by wires, radio frequencies, and aviation, the prospect of such fratricidal conflict need not be limited to the affairs of one continent.

Flight, then, might seem all the more viable, though. The prospect of conscription at the hands of the crooks, being made to wage war on behalf of those who robbed him of his vote and destroyed his way of life, might be too much to bear. If he must fight, he might do well to join a foreign army before being made a slave soldier on more familiar soil.

We should have to consider such prospects. To put our minds through these exercises is perhaps the greater crime than the theft itself. A decent man wants to obey the laws of his country. He wants to be loyal to his government.

Deprived of the opportunity to live this way in good conscience, he is deprived of all good options.
