Atlanta CPA Presents…Precipice of Power…Chapter 33
Precipice of Power is a call to action. Economically, politically and as a world leader, America stands on the brink. A step towards destruction or a step back to morality hangs in the balance. Precipice of Power is for all good thinking American’s to lead us back to smaller government and democracy and away from runaway deficits and Socialism. For what evil lies within the hearts of man, whose passion is inflamed by the lust for power, must be stopped. Democracy hangs in the balance until good people rise up and defend America from sea to shining sea. We must never back down. We must never be afraid. We must be bold. We must act. Now. Precipice of Power is not a call to violence but the peaceful revolution that our Constitution and democracy allows, granting us the privilege and responsibility to serve, vote and to actively seek positive change. Shirking not from our moral duty, but to do what you can locally, domestically and internationally to help seat America permanently as a beacon of democracy to a world in need. Precipice of Power will be published here in its entirety at http://www.hiscpa.com/blog/
A direct frontal assault will draw the most ire and attention. Better to look to the more subtle approach.
Rome wasn’t built in a day. It didn’t fall in one, either.
The shortest distance between two points is frequently the fastest, but often the most painful. For what we might gain with force and sheer might, perhaps a more delicate approach would be better. Perhaps a flanking maneuver. A little give and go. Can’t stay on one path too long, still have work to do to complete the process. They say slow and steady will win the race and that patience is a virtue.
But not mine.
Flanking maneuvers. Long held as a bastion of creativity by generals of war and politicians alike. Akin to a boxer feigning a left jab and following up with a right cross ending the match. During the Civil War at the battle of Chancellorsville, General Lee knew he was grossly outnumbered by over two to one. He did not stand toe to toe to fight as the numbers were against him. Better to create a diversion. A little sleight of hand.
A magician would be proud. All we have to do is distract their attention and then pull a rabbit out of our hat.
General Lee, rather than fighting head-on, opted to divide his troops by two leaving him further disadvantaged from direct assault. Now with only one soldier to every four of the Union army. Instead Lee decided to send General Jackson and his troops around to the side of the Union forces in a brilliant flanking movement. Soon routing the surprised Union troops.
Don’t have to be bigger to win. Just smarter. Ask Goliath. A well trained mammoth against a shepherd boy..A little boy with a sling and a few pebbles. Who would have thought?
The oval office. A great place to plan.
Other administrations have come and gone, but mine is here to stay.
We’ll need to get term limits overturned. Just a matter of time.
Bringing in my inner circle would surely make them feel good. Being a part. A vital component in the wheels of progress. Yeah right. I’ve already decided. If I needed their help I would have asked them. They have titles because it’s customary. But there’s only one leader here and the rest are minions. My minions. The only item left to determine, is their relative standings to each other. Perhaps important to them but not to me.
Flanking maneuvers. Ever changing, ever evolving, lest old and outdated methods be turned into a liability. History forgotten is doomed to repeat itself. Hmm…
It’s better to join them than beat them. Lead from out front, but with the ideals of theocracy: A government divinely led.
This time we will, hah. This time I will.
The American News Network announcer begins, “In a special news announcement tonight at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, President Jack Jackson will talk to the nation. From his heart. About you, his primary concern as we travel through this world to our destiny. Be sure you stay tuned to this exciting broadcast as we seek to know what we the citizens of these United States can do. America, the land of liberty. Founded on values of good people with challenges facing us at every turn. Join us tonight as President Jackson leads us ever forward.”
“And now live from the Oval Office in Washington D.C, we join President Jackson in a personal address to the nation.”
“Ladies and gentlemen I appreciate your joining me today as we begin to explore together our need as a people. Though many of my predecessors and prior administrations have hesitated to do so, I am moving forward, together with you. No longer will we be a people afraid to admit the truth. Our people are looking for a time to return America to the traditional values of her roots. Tonight is that night.”
“Our forbearers founded us to be a country under God and to escape the tyranny of others. Today we are going to return to the standard our Founding Fathers originally intended. Hence forward, we will be a nation who not only aspires to the written word of our forefathers, but one who acts it out as well. The rights of students to prayer will be returned to our schools and God’s word to our lives for without belief in a higher purpose, there is none.”
The Religious Right and the Moral Majority roared their joyous approval.
Too excited to be astute. Like a kid at Christmas looking at the size of the boxes. Rather than what’s in them.
Liberals throughout America cringed. The man they have voted into office had turned against them.
Afraid their long battle to keep religion out of the halls of government was lost. Not realizing, it was just beginning.
The nine justices of the U.S. Supreme Court clenched their collective teeth.
If I had any doubts before, they are all gone now.
Two of the previously undecided federal district judges instantly made up their mind. Instantly joining the fray aligning themselves against the president.
Only taking but a bit to tip the pendulum of otherwise balanced scales.
President Jackson continues, “There will remain no national church in America, for religious freedom has long been a mainstay of our country. However, all Americans will remain free to find God in their own way, as we are all united as God’s children. I myself will be seeking God in all decisions, governmental, political and personal. For whatever we call God, we are all made in His image, free to choose as we will. To worship as we see fit. From this day forward, I will seek God’s will in all issues facing me in my presidency, so that together we might fulfill America’s destiny. Lean not on your own understanding but seek him in all that you do.”
Leaders will come preaching His word, but do not be felled by their wiles and snares seeking to entrap. A time will come when prophecy will be spoken, but not heard, by all those seeking the one true way.
The Religious Right and the Moral Majority rested in their great achievement.
Just like Julius Caesar on the Ides of March. The fifteenth of March. A day to die for.
Misguided liberals eternally confused and now so much the more so.
The nine justices of the U.S. Supreme Court clenched their collective teeth.
Get ready. The onslaught of cases brought before the highest court are about to grow. Exponentially. This is going to be harder and more challenging than I ever imagined.
President Jack Jackson pulls a single piece of paper out of his wallet and calmly marks off the R in Patriot.
Religion. Makes the people feel good. So let’s endorse it. So we can start to get our country from all of this Christian nonsense. We might even post the Ten Commandments in Lincoln’s room at the White House. Hah.
Let’s not go overboard.
Solely an ends to a means. Work the agenda. Close the loops. It’s working out just as planned. Over half-way there. Stay the course.
