Take the government to court. If you lose, then its not due to a conspiracy, its because you don't have a case. You don't get to start a revolution
because you lose.
Don't vote for people you don't like. If they get elected, then the population has democratically deemed they are qualified to be in office. You
don't get to start a revolution because you don't get your way.
I know this thread is old, but in idling by this post I felt compelled to respond to it, in light of the upcoming elections.
The courts as they are currently structured work not for the people, but for the state or the government. Even the attorney that you hire to defend
you is an "officer of the court" and therefore their primary duty is to uphold the laws of the court (or justice system) and not defend your
Your second remark about not voting for someone you "don't like" may seem like a very sensible way of handling it, but look a bit further and you
will see that the choices are GIVEN to you, you are not making any real choices. Case in point is what has happened to Ron Paul, clearly the most
sensible candidate that was on the Republican ticket.
During the debates, his fellow Republicans ignored him. They didn't offer rebuttal, they didn't offer even a snide remark, they just ignored his
presence. What do you think the average couch potato thought about Dr. Paul having witnessed that? DO you think the majority of America saw it for
what it really was? No, they thought the "real" candidates were everyone else but Dr. Paul. Call it spin, call in subliminal, but please, don't
call it choice.
It is the duty, the responsibility of every American citizen to hold the government accountable for their actions, both at home and abroad. The
dangers of our government's actions are inflicted upon the citizens, not the "economy" as someone else said.
The economy itself is a farce. It is an artificial designed system that keeps the real wealth and power within the central banking system, and keeps
the majority of us as subjects to the state. America started down the path to ruin when the Federal Reserve Act was passed by a congress duped into
believing it something good.
I do not advocate violence, however I also do not advocate silence in the face of tyranny. I believe it was Benjamin Franklin that once said, "Stand
for something or hang for nothing."
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last
resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." Thomas Jefferson
