Thanks to our beloved InstaPundit, I've just been over to Sarah Hoyt's place to read the most chilling, sobering true story I've ever encountered on the Web.
Sarah, I can't help but wonder if Americans, accustomed to decade after decade of material comfort and peaceful transitions of power, would be as brave and unflinching as your sixteen-year-old self.
I believe it was Robert A. Heinlein who reminded us that true bravery is not the absence of fear, but the resolve to continue on in the face of your fear -- and the greater your fear, the braver you must be to overcome it. Just how brave would we be, who (like a writer from France whose name I've forgotten) have long enjoyed freedom but have never had to fight for it?
Is there a point? Of course. How likely is it that the Obamunists will surrender power peacefully after losing the elections? I'd hesitate to say it's guaranteed; would you?
I suspect there's more in store for us than a few W keys torn from White House keyboards.
