Reflecting on a new poll that found that nearly one-third of Americans, including a plurality of Republicans “could imagine supporting the U.S. military taking over the powers of federal government,” Patrice Lewis of WorldNetDaily claimed last week that such results are not surprising.
Lewis wrote that while a coup wouldn’t work to defeat “the progressive agenda” that holds sway over the U.S. government, it could at least simply split the nation in two and “divvy up our land mass into two nations — one progressive, one conservative.”
“With due respect to the atrocities committed upon the Native Americans, we no longer have an empty continent where disgruntled individuals can flee when things become intolerable,” she said.
The new conservative nation, Lewis explained, would be founded upon the ideals of God and would “win His favorable attention once again.”
Whether our politicians are willing to admit it or not, there’s a lot of growing resentment just waiting for the right spark to set it off.
Unsurprisingly, a recent YouGov survey revealed that 29 percent of Americans “could imagine” supporting a military coup against the government. I have a sneaking suspicion the number might be higher, but common-sense wariness may have prevented people from answering honestly.
What, precisely, is a coup? Properly called a coup d’état (the French would know!), Wikipedia defines it as a “sudden and (usually) illegal seizure of a state, usually instigated by a small group of the existing government establishment to depose the established regime and replace it with a new ruling body. A coup d’état is considered successful when the usurpers establish their dominance. If a coup fails, a civil war may ensue.”
I thought it interesting how the progressive Wikipedia specified coups are “illegal.”
The progressive agenda, which I firmly believe is poisoning our nation, is authored by people who – as violently as I disagree with almost everything they advocate and stand for – are every bit as American as I am. A coup with results that would please patriots would alienate progressives; and a coup with results that would please progressives would alienate patriots.
I am sincere when I say the only viable solution is to divide America. With due respect to the atrocities committed upon the Native Americans, we no longer have an empty continent where disgruntled individuals can flee when things become intolerable. But we can divvy up our land mass into two nations – one progressive, one conservative – where the ideals and agendas of each can be instigated to the satisfaction of two extremely diverse populations.
Miracles may not cluster, but God is still their architect. And we’ve already seen that He looks with favor on nations that turn to him. A new nation, “… conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal,” might just win His favorable attention once again.
