Dr. Ernesto Guevara who has been quoted extensively by the left, who was also known by the name Che Guevara wrote a famous how too essay on guerrilla warfare. The twenty page manual is titled Guerrilla Warfare and can be found easily on-line. Even the military academies and the Special Forces study this “manual”.

Most of us probably know very little about Che Guevara because we don’t believe in armed insurrection as an answer to our political struggles. Che was a trained and licensed medical doctor from an upper-middle class family who grew up in Argentina. He got the nickname Che because the Argentinians have a way of accenting words that other Spanish speaking countries don’t and it sounds like a CH, A.

Early on in this manual on guerrilla warfare, Che says this:

“Where a government has come into power through some form of popular vote, fraudulent or not, and maintains at least an appearance of constitutional legality, the guerrilla outbreak cannot be promoted, since the possibilities of peaceful struggle have not yet been exhausted.”

So, even Che, the hero of the left, would agree with us and Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin because the 2010 election was the greatest example of the possibilities of peaceful struggle. Give me some words and a camera and I’ll expose injustice and the truth every time. We don’t need guerrilla outbreak and a call to arms because we won.

We all remember some events in our lives with our parents. One of the events that impressed me the most when I was young. My father and I watched a Presidential Inauguration parade. My Dad had tears coming down his face even though nobody was saying anything on the TV. I asked him what was wrong and he said, “The peaceful transition of power. It always never ceases to amaze me. This is very rare in the history of the world.”

We are the ones who believe in the ballot box and the peaceful transition of power. Not them. They can’t reach their goals that way so they try anything other than the ballot box to reach their goals and say that we are the ones doing it.
