Whoever wrote that statement on the first page needs to be smacked upside their head with a history book.
A revolution is exactly what we need. Our Founding Fathers are turning in their graves at this country of divided sheep.

Then whoever fires the first shot is responsible for any violence that may come of it. Live free or die.
Violent Revolutions, Wars are worthless and pointless. It's time people wise up to this.

I'm glad that John Adams, Joseph Warren, Ben Franklin, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson didn't agree with you.
I guess you also hadn't heard of the French Revolution. I guess all those peasants were just using those pitchforks to gather more hay for the winter.

There was another thread where S.O. stated that we'd move the servers to Canada if there was ever an issue of the US Gov't having the right to shut us down over the content on the site.
GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.
"I don't give a goddamn," Bush retorted. "I'm the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way."
"Mr. President," one aide in the meeting said. "There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution."
"Stop throwing the Constitution in my face," Bush screamed back. "It's just a goddamned piece of paper!"
Bush quote bogus (”Constitution is just a ***-damned piece of paper”)
Posted July 22, 2006
One of the most famous quotes allegedly showing President Bush’s real frame of mind has proven to be false, a lie from (we are told) a source that proved not to be credible. Because the source doesn’t exist.
Capitol Hill Blue’s Apology for the mistake doesn’t actually mention the quote itself. But with a hat tip to Classical Values, we now see that Capitol Hill Blue (CHB) has quite a bit to explain.
CHB simply removed the story, which used to be Article 7779 according to Google’s cache of the site. Now, as of this writing, the page has no article on it, and just the current date with the site’s motto. It will be interesting to see, if in the weeks ahead, the numerous web pages citing the bogus quote will issue their own retraction. CHB is busy excising the quote, which they used repeatedly in many of their stories, and appending a disclaimer that the article had been edited since publication. But they don’t mention in those various edits that it is the very famous “piece of paper” quote that was excised.
