I'm a little late to this party but, apparently, the blogosphere was briefly abuzz with opinions on this article by Gabe Suarez. A choice quote:
When I was on SWAT our view is that "We will always win....even if we have to burn down your entire house by bombing it....we will win". Losing is not an option. That again is reality....to expect less once the event kicks off is simply stupid. Period.
Read the whole thing for yourself then ask, does it really have any new information in it? Be honest now.
Sure he admits we live under a condition any rational, sane person would call a police state but that is not much of a revelation.
Sure it certainly looks like Mr Suarez likes living in such a state but I think anyone who has read his writing on social issues will not find that particularly surprising.
Even his solution is nothing new. With the deleted parts put back in, it goes something like this:
- Get a job
- Make money
- Pay taxes. A police state is expensive to maintain
- Get a nice home where police activity is not needed
- Make more money because the police state is even more expensive than you thought and we need the taxes
- Find a nice girl
- Marry her
- Make babies and raise them up to be the next generation of taxpayers because the cost of a police state only goes up
In return the state will let you live in relative peace. If you live long enough it may let you retire for a short while before you die. If you are really good, it will even let you keep few guns so you can pretend you are free.
As long as you continue paying those taxes.
If you can't pay your "fair" share, well, then of what use are you to the state? A drain on resources better used to pay for booze, drugs, hookers and little boy whores. Sure a few of you "useless eaters" will be hurt or killed without any moral justification but at least the enforcers will get the opportunity to sharpen their killing skills. You can die, comforted by the knowledge that your death will serve as a warning to the taxpayers of what their future will be like if they stop paying.
Nothing new here.
I found the following in a post on Suarez's Christian Warrior Ministries blog entitled Spiritual Warfare. Not directly related but does make me want to say, "Hmmmmm".
Being a bold Christian means, as much as you are able, defending the faith, standing up for Christ, challenging false teachers, using the tools of this earth to defend the faith and promote the spread of the Gospel.
