Rip off the Bandage!

Posted by revkharma on November 4, 2008

Years ago, I had an accident, and rather badly scraped up my leg. I usually heal pretty well, but this one wound seemed to only get worse. I did as all the experts told me, covered it with all kind of medicine, and kept a bandage on it.

Still the skin around it was red, sore, and the spot was sore. Seemed to keep a constant low grade infection no matter what I did. Finally I decided to get a better look and see just how badly it was infected.

It hurt. It hurt badly. As I tore off the bandage, the thinly formed scab underneath ripped off, reopening the wound.  As I removed the bandage the wound began to ooze, and I could finally see just how bad the infection was. There was a great deal of nasty stuff that was hidden beneath the bandage and the thin scab that helt the infection in place.

Ripping it open was very painful, and extremely messy. It HURT, and actually stunk a little. Opening it up kinda was like taking the lid off a cesspool,

However, once I had the courage to rip it open and go through the pain, discomfort and mess things had a chance to heal. 

Once I decided there was no alternative I figured it would be worth the discomfort to see if I could fix the problem. It took a couple more weeks, and hurt like hell, but once I let the puss drain the wound had a chance to begin healing.

It never was the same, there’s a scar, and the skin can still be painful at times. However, at least it’s not infected, and there is no longer a risk of the infection spreading throughout my entire system and killing me.

As I write this, the election is still in progress, but it looks increasingly likely that Obama will prevail over Mccain. Perhaps this is the moment of pain. The boiling pus pocket of infection that is the socialist impulse in American politics will be opened, allowing the infection to see the light of day. We need to push this, push the leftists as far as they are willing to go. It’s a risky strategy, but I fear our only option. If we misjudge, the infection can spread and poison the Republic entirely. The potential reward is that we can open it and drain the infection. It will take time, and it will be painful, hard, dirty work. But without ripping open the wound we can not drain this mess. Failure to do so will guarantee that the infection will worsen, spread and kill us all in short order.

We have a small window of opportunity. Unless we are prepared to take it, the poison will spread rapidly and toxicity will overtake us. We surely will die.
