A recent poll revealed that 29% agreed with the statement, “In the next few years, an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect our liberties.” Looking at the specifics of the poll there’s the possibility that the actual percentage may be slightly higher nationally.
I pray that it never comes to civil disobedience. Most likely any significant armed revolt would rapidly develop into civil war.
The apprehension that is expressed by the Founding Fathers is not to be taken lightly.
“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes;…. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security”. Declaration of Independence.
But, when it comes to choices of tyranny, liberty or death, I gladly repeat the cry of Patrick Henry, “Give me Liberty or give me Death!” This may be the first time in history that a civil war was the unintended results of a propaganda campaign combined with rabid political corruption. It is all too plain to see, there is an effectual attack upon the First Amendment from within the mainstream media. They have totally lost the foundational concept of the Press having integrity fulfilling the sacred trust of the people as their ears. For an example take a look at the terrorist attack at Benghazi. Look at web sites from major news outlets, both Democrat and Republican leaning. Search their archives, look at what was reported and when. Compare the results from facts that thus far have been revealed.
The founders included freedom of speech in the very first amendment, knowing that free speech and a Free Press was essential to a functioning Republic. A Free Press is required to keep our elected officials accountable. The truth be know the majority of Democrats and Republicans are not that far apart on many issues and they don’t even know it. The media with its progress agenda has constantly sought to deceive, they have lied regarding what Republicans believe, what they seek, and effectually who they are. They treat the truth with distain, and pervert the facts concerning almost every issue. You are only told what they want you to hear and if the facts don’t support it they lie. You can’t make an informed decision if your information is false.
The effort to subvert the Constitution is not restricted to propaganda spread by the mainstream media; this appears to be an effort that extends to our educational system, entertainment immersion and almost every aspect of our lives.
“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.” Adolf Hitler
I’m not saying that the problem only lies with the Democrats, although the progressive left has pervaded the Democrats, we can see it’s tentacles extend into the Republican party as well.
“By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise” Adolf Hitler.
Thankfully, everyday we see more and more people wake up to the truth; people resent being lied to and manipulated. But the truth is not spreading fast enough. In order to save this great nation it is up to us to counter the power of the media that has been pitted against us.
“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” George Washington
We still have freedom of speech, but the voice of deception has permeated our ears. We need to be acquainted with the truth, and damn political correctness, we need the truth to be known to all. It will take all of us speaking out the truth to drown out the flood of deception.
“The most effectual means of preventing [the perversion of power into tyranny are] to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large, and more especially to give them knowledge of those facts which history exhibits, that possessed thereby of the experience of other ages and countries, they may be enabled to know ambition under all its shapes, and prompt to exert their natural powers to defeat its purposes.” Thomas Jefferson.
Political corruption is pervasive regardless of party. But I believe the system will still work, we can vote out corruption, we can vote out compromise of our rights. But it is going to take enlightenment of the people to the truth; an educated vote is a powerful weapon. The most effective way for the truth to spread will be one on one.
“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
“America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.” Joseph Stalin
I don’t believe it is yet time for a call to arms, but I definitely feel it is a time for a call to the polls. Don’t be deceived we are late in responding to the attack, the battle is raging at our door. Those that seek to destroy or nation can taste victory, it is at the edge of their grasp. We have been guilty of complacency for far too long. Many years ago, I took an oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. Though I’m no longer in the military this was an oath that I shall not be released from this side of death.
Our Constitution is an affirmation of our God given rights and these rights are beyond any government or law and shall not be infringed upon.
“Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.” Benjamin Franklin
We must fight to free the minds of the people from the grasp of deception. At the same time as prudent citizen we must diligently prepare for the worse. Stock up on the essentials for personnel survival and defense of your liberty. I was thinking maybe RC planes might be a good idea to include on the list. Some of the drones are light they won’t take much of a hit.
“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” Thomas Jefferson
