The Liberty Offensive

(Feel free to be offended!)

Playing Offense
For about 100 years, starting around 1913, the beginning of the 'progressive' era during the Woodrow Wilson regime, and continuing with the Frankfurt School, liberty and freedom have been under attack. Freedom and liberty supporters played defense. For 100 years, we've been in defense of liberty, and look where it got us.

We need to take offense, and play offense. I keep hearing, and have said it myself, "once lost, liberty is nearly impossible to recover". That's only true if you're playing defense -- trying to defend your liberty. Don't defend liberty! Demand liberty! Make our illiberal oppressors defend their reasons for taking our liberty! Let's start kicking ass, and taking names!

Coming out of the Age of Enlightenment, the concepts of freedom and liberty were on the offense in the American Revolution, and we won against seemingly insurmountable odds. This nation was founded on the idea that the individual is the world's smallest minority, and that individual rights and responsibilities deserve the most respect. We are being oppressed. We have been playing defense for too long. The government is taking our freedom, and selling it back to us as permits. We must go on the offense! Join The Liberty Offensive!

Flinging Poo
The left are throwing crap at the wall faster than we can scrape it off. Throwing legislation, ideas, movies, plots, TV shows, that all audaciously push the envelope further and further to the left. They are overshooting their goals, just so the line gets pushed to the left, where they want it. Who would have guessed, 20 years ago, that long held traditional values like marriage and Christmas would be corrupted and marginalized, and if we object, we're the ones who can be fined for bigotry?

The Constitution binds the government, and forces government to treat every citizen equally under the law. The Constitution frees the individual and private business. Everyone is at liberty to be as bigoted as we please. Other dissenting individuals and businesses are at liberty to boycott us. That's how things work in the free market of ideas. Not for very much longer.

A friend of mine was a Marine. He said that they were trained in hand-to-hand combat, to punch past the goal. If you mean to punch a man in the nose, aim for the back of his head. That way, you'll be sure to smash his nose. The left are already doing that. We cannot wait for the left to throw out their next outrageous idea, and try to fight it. Just by getting it out there, it gains a certain level of acceptance. Even if we object, and the judge says, "sustained", the jury cannot un-hear it. The defense rests. How many more times do you think the Supreme Court will say the right to keep and bear arms, is an individual right?

So what does it mean to join The Liberty Offensive? It means we need to start putting our ideas out there, for the jury to hear, even if the judge says, "overruled". We need to try to pass legislation that enhances individual liberty and responsibility, even if President Zero vetoes it. We need to write songs with liberty-laced lyrics. We need to write TV shows that celebrate freedom and responsibility. We need to mock and ridicule the ridiculous PC ninny-speak. As Bill Whittle likes to say, "we are the steely-eyed missile men who believe in loud guns, hot women and fast cars". We need to aim for the back of 'progressives' heads, just to be sure we smash their noses.

Do you know why I always put the word 'progressive' and 'liberal' in single quotes? Because 'progressivism' is the exact opposite of progress. It is regression. Today's 'liberals' are illiberal statists. Those are irony-quotes. And I use single quotes instead of double quotes, because I don't think 'progressives' and 'liberals' are worth the extra effort it takes for me to hit the shift key to make double quotes. That is the kind of contempt I have for 'progressive', 'liberal' ideology. They talk liberal, but they mean slavery.

If the Republican party doesn't start going on the offensive for liberty, it will be left in the dust. The Democrat party have become increasingly 'socialist' (communist-lite), and the opposition party is supposed to provide a counterbalance. It means moving further to the right, to counterbalance the left. The Republicans are supposed to be the opposition to the Democrat party. But the most recent budget bill passed by the Republican-controlled congress, essentially passed the entire Democrat agenda. That is not opposition; that is capitulation!

"Grow a Pair, Baby Cakes!"
Come on, you GOP-ers, grow a pair, or a spine, or both, and start introducing some offensive legislation worthy of the name, "Grand Old Party"! And I mean "offensive" in every sense of the word. Make that legislation offensive to the left. The more offensive, the better! Go on the offensive! Be on the offensive! Offend the hell out of them! Offend their faces off! Aim past your target, so that what you hit will be the new target. Move the Overton Window back to the right. Stop walking on eggshells, being afraid to offend people. Being offended is for weenies! Donald Trump doesn't have all the right ideas, but he has the right attitude.

Audit the Fed! Defund Planned Parenthood! Dismantle the IRS and the EPA! Dismantle the Department of Education! Get rid of as much oppressive bureaucracy as possible! If it isn't an enumerated power, lose it! Audacious? You bet! Non-starters? Maybe for the first 100 tries. The 'progressives' have been doing their crap like this for 100 years. We have to play the long game.

No more defense of liberty! This is The Liberty Offensive! We are offensive! We're here to throw crap against the wall faster than the left can scrape it off. The stickier the better. People just want to be left alone to live their lives, keep the stuff they earned, and be decent people, to the greatest extent possible. Even 'liberals'. Suck it up, lefties!


  1. The Left of the 1960's railed against "The Establishment." Today, ironically they have become "The Establishment." Yet, they still claim to be rebels. Really? The 60's were over 50 years ago. Fifty long years....before the personal computer was even invented. Those are ancient times now.

    Indeed, many in the Left are still living in the 60's. They are stuck, entrenched and trapped and miserable. We are living in an entirely different world they are unaware exists. They are not rebels---- but robot followers running down a well-trampled trail.

    It really is rather embarrassing as they cling to their 60's childhood as a comforter in their olden years.

    Certainly we can engage the youth today with a more modern compelling story that will be relevant to their lives. It is called reset refresh renew. I agree with this blog. Instead of just defending--- we must create a vision that is compelling and intriguing. Something new and beautiful and waiting for us if we only will have the courage to create it.

    All the Left is offering to youth is that they will be glad to be "helicopter parents" for the rest of their children's lives....forever. Tell the youth of today they will never be allowed to grow up. They will be surveiled, monitored, ordered about and told what to love and think and say. They will be told what to buy and where to live and what to own and what to eat and where they can drive and how they can live. There are no choices here... anymore.

    Now, how does that sound?

    1. That sounds excellent. I have to admit, my messaging sounds a little abrasive. We need a great message, that makes people want to join us. And we should be on the offensive about throwing policy at the wall to support it, faster than the left can scrape it off.

  2. We freedom fighters need to get together to brainstorm about what kinds of offensive agenda items we should throw against the wall.
