Actually, a revolution could occur and succeed... through incredible sacrifice.
Consider Tiananmen Square. Many people assembled who were vastly outnumbered and outgunned and really had no hope of getting what they wanted. But
they were so inspired by the demonstrations being carried out that they were willing to stand against a disapproving regime anyway. One man, in
perhaps one of the most famous images of all time, even stepped in front of a column of tanks, stopping them.
That man was willing to die right there, and give up all his family, friends, and possessions for the beliefs of this mob of about 1,000 people. He
did it, and even though no real revolution occurred (at least not so obviously), we are still moved decades later by his bravery. He stood his ground
and made his point, and fortunately for him, he also cheated the odds and got to walk away from the ordeal.
That's the kind of demeanor that will make the revolution successful. There is no chance of a successful military campaign against the United States
government or the New World Order. Instead, each rebel will have to calmly and peacefully surrender themselves to the oppressive government, many, if
not all, being publicly executed for speaking out. The point will be to make an example of them, but the opposite will occur.
These brave souls will be seen as the only true heroes left, people who stood tall for their beliefs. Every time their death is broadcast on the TV or
the Internet someone else will decide enough is enough, and they too will lay down their lives. Soon so many people will be being executed that the
population at large will no longer be able to tolerate the bloodbath, and will rise up as one to win their independence or die trying.
The regime in charge will have a choice, either grant independence or have no one to rule over. Either way, the evil ideals of such an institution
will fail and crumple. It's gruesome, it's not a pleasant thought, and I hope it never happens, but I see no other way that freedom can prevail when
those oppressed stand no chance at survival, let alone victory.
I'm no John Adams or George Washington, but I am a proud Patriot. I believe in what this nation once stood for, when our flag flew high and the Bible
and the Constitution were the highest books in the land, in that order. I do not wish to die in the street cold and alone in 50 years, having a bullet
shot through my head on the nightly news, but I say this without reservation or hesitation: I will do it if necessary. And even if I will be the only
one left who still believes in what's right, I would die with a clear conscience and a pride in my heart. I would die happy.
There is much wrong in this nation, much sin, much waste, hate, and vice. But I mean it when I say God Bless America. It's a terrifying thought, but
nothing would bring me more pride than to lay down my life for the American Ideal.
I have to say it again: God Bless America.
