    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, on the bright side, there were no riots in the streets following Tuesday's election. This is good.

    On the other hand, Obama got elected president. We also have a Democrat majority in the Senate. Therefore, we must prepare to "change." This is bad.

    I truly believe we are heading into one of the most divisive times in our nation's history, and it won't have anything to do with skin color. (How tired I am of hearing that argument.) It will have everything to do with socialism vs. free-market economics. Dependence vs. independence.

    During a recent history lesson with my homeschooled daughters, we discussed some of the highlights of ancient Greek civilization and its contributions to our current culture. I told the girls about Hippocrates and the Hippocratic oath, a portion of which can be summed up as "First, do no harm."

    Maybe this could apply to the Obama administration. First, do not harm us.

    Unfortunately, new presidents merely take an oath to support and defend the Constitution, and we all know how well that oath is fulfilled. So a plea to "do no harm" will undoubtedly fall on deaf ears.

    (Column continues below)


    By implication, we can assume that the "changes" that will be forced upon us in the next four years will harm us. More than ever before, now is the time to cultivate personal independence – or as much as you can in our fettered condition. The less you need the government, the more you weaken it. The more dependent you are on government, the more power it has.

    It was Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas (1939-1975) who said, "The right to be left alone is indeed the beginning of all freedom." Keep that in mind as you consider the following suggestions.

    Prepare to hunker down. Interpret this as you will.


    If you have any, hide your money – otherwise it will be spread around. The best way to spread your own wealth on your own terms is to hire people to work for you. But of course, you knew that already.


    Take your kids out of public school. Schools are going to become nothing but Marxist pressure cookers. They're already socialist indoctrination centers. Have you any idea what they're teaching in kindergarten these days, much less high school? Better find out.


    If you're Joe the Plumber, hide. Quickly. Otherwise your life for the next four years will be a living hell. Obama supporters have demonstrated they like to retaliate, so you're not safe.


    Buy guns and ammunition. Especially ammunition. The tools necessary for self-defense and to keep our government under at least a modicum of control are going to quickly become unavailable. Perhaps not banned outright – that would cause riots – but the taxes on these tools of self-reliance will be raised so high that the effect will be the same.


    Don't surrender to guilt. Opposing the new world order coming your way is not selfish. The "best interests of all" are code words for state slavery. "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs" is the death of liberty and the definition of Marxism. Duh.


    Stockpile some resources, because it's only a matter of time before our terrorist enemies (who are delighted with the outcome of the election) will launch something nasty our way. Terrorists love weak or untried rulers because they prefer to strike vulnerable targets. We just bared our throats.


    Move. Whatever your political affiliation, it's always best to live in a place with like-minded people. (Idaho might be worth considering.) Just make sure the place you move to has people whose concepts of liberty agree with yours.


    Start looking for other news sources, because it's very likely that your favorite conservative radio talk-show host will go out of business once the (ahem) "Fairness" Doctrine gets re-implemented.


    Buy light bulbs. There is no possible way our new green president will lift the absurd imminent ban on incandescent light bulbs. Unless you want your home to look like the inside of a train station lavatory in 2012, you'd better stock up on incandescents while you can. (Obviously lights bulbs are a metaphor for all the "for your own good" changes that will be shoved upon us.)


    Go to church. All the morals and values that we once cherished in this country – traditional marriage, sanctity of life, family values – are going to become so condemned that churches will be our only sanctuaries.


    Strengthen your family, your community, your state. Obama has said that an economy is built from the bottom up. In that he is entirely wrong (poor people don't hire – only rich people do that). But liberty most certainly IS built from the bottom up. Start by strengthening yourself. Next, your family. Support your neighbors. Build your community. Get involved with your state. The days of sitting on your hands must be over.


    Find another job. Or preferably, several. Don't give up your current job, of course, but as the economy continues to nosedive, it is best to cultivate your marketable skills and diversify your income sources. The more income irons you have in the fire, the better.


    Never never never never trust that the upcoming administration will do anything in your best interest. If the government offers you something that seems too good to be true, assume that it is. Education, medical care, housing and other benefits are never free – they cost something down the line. And the cost is always freedom. Take warning.
    Obviously this list barely scratches the surface. If you use your head, you can think of many more. But better hurry up. Change is coming, like it or not.

    But the thing about "change" is that it can work both ways. The ordinary Joe Plumbers of this country can change, too – and it may not be in the direction the government will like.

    Tough patooties.

    Dumbest article ever.

    Here is the premise of the entire article:

    Since I didn't say I wouldn't hurt, I actually will. Go **** yourself, moron.

    Not at all - just the usual anti-Bush bots who took the opportunity for an article about Obama to make derogatory comments about Bush. They just can't come up with anything to counter what's in the article, and so attack Bush instead. The typical lieral Democrap misdirection. Never actually address the subject being discussed.

    If I posted an article about the weather, the same group would respond that it was Bush's failed policies.....

    Completely ignore the fact that someone pointed out the flawed logic of the article before anyone talked about Bush.

    The article is shit. It is written by a completely slanted right winged view saying that any change Obama makes will harm us. At that point, it loses all credibility.

    The Obamanation cockroaches can't be expected to use logic and reasoning considering they've had their mind already reprogrammed a la KGB style. Just keep flashing 'HOPE' and 'CHANGE' on flash cards, before a movie at Loews, put it in the FORD manual, etc. and you have a voter that walks in like a mindless zombie to pull the lever for a member of the worldwide communist movement. Idiotas.

    If it is as you say how come McCain couldn't figure it out? Experience was pretty much worthless

    And everyone who voted for McCain only did so because Obama is an "A-Rab."

    See how annoying that is?

    Please point out where someone "pointed out the flawed logic" of the article. I see no point by point refutation of the article's logic at all.

    Oh, I'm supposed to accept the completely slanted emotion-laden left wing view of "Change" - while having read Obama's statements where he explicitly said he wanted to change the Supreme Court to allow redistribution of wealth. That's not "right wing" slant - those are Obama's views. Likewise Obama's and Biden's long-standing anti-gun positions. Likewise his position on bankrupting major parts of the existing energy industries while pursuing the enviro-wacky dream of alternative energy in a short time span.

    I find the article a very compelling vision of the consequences of Obama's vision for change. Obviously, the Obama-bots will disagree, and would rather revile the article and "right wingers" than debate the positions, issues, and consequences.
