There seems to be two views here, and I am in the one that holds that we need to change what we have, rather than start over. Granted, what we have is
not ideal, or even good, but like a marriage, it is for better or worse.
But, and this is a big BUT, there are limits. Just as in a marriage, while one may be long suffering, there are limits. Our nation is now reaching the
limit of allowable tolerance with our 'spouse'.
How often do we say that there is no need for a woman to remain in a marriage where her husband abuses her? Do we not feel that for the sake of her
children, if for no other reason, she should get out from under such oppression? Then how are we as citizens so different? Are we not being daily
abused by the government? Do our leaders not act as if our wishes were of no importance? Are we not subject to 'corrective' measures at the whim of
those we work and provide for? Are we not, in the end analysis, whores who sell our bodies daily to provide income for our political pimps, while they
enjoy the fruits of our labor?
I too am not for revolt, nor for separation. Yet, if the direction of the ship of state does not alter, I can see no other option. The founding
fathers also tried all means available for redress till the only path left was revolution. How much more abuse should this nation take, before action,
no matter how abhorrent, must be taken?
If men do not now take it as their personal cause to change this tyranny by the ballot, then it will come to arms. Revolt is in the air.
