...Damn, who told you about my magic wand...
I have a very bad problem with things that are going on, so I have been running some numbers in my head, but I won't bore anyone to death with
redundant information that will just get lost in the mix. The only thing I can really say is that the mass of thinking here on these boards has been
limited to about 0.0267% success rate at actually being beneficial to the situation.
I actually took almost the whole day off of ATS/BTS, and am disappointed with the number of responses between your thread and mine. While I agree
that the $h@! is getting deep with not just the US, but the world, I do have to say with everyones concerns that no one has come up with the most
logically sound idea that would eliminate the fear everyone seems to be going through...just ignore everything!
If it helps people, write everything down on paper, lay it out on the table, and just look at it. Notice how many problems you see with everything?
Now, take the paper and burn it...that is exactly the position everyone should take who believes that approximately 500,000 armed Americans would
stand a chance against just a meer 20,000 trained-to-kill soldiers. And yes, that 500,000 is the high estimated number of your fellow Americans that
would actually stand to fight out of 301+ million Americans in this country.
Ever ask someone in the military how many kills they have? Ever wonder why they would rather not talk about it?
But okay...the world is in financial ruins...the military is supposedly awaiting for the command to institute Martial Law upon the masses...people
might be in fear, but we have guns. This is about the most redundant way to look at things. So what if the government that people claim the public
has no control over is instituting laws to govern the people into oblivion. Ever heard the saying that sometimes it is just better to turn the other
cheek? Now I am not talking about just giving into anything...that'd be stupid. What I am talking about is simply ignoring the fact that anyone is
above you. Go about your day, do your work, pay your bills, and don't ask them for nothing, yet expect nothing in return. I can almost guarentee
that you will be able to get more people aboard with this plan, than one that simply says "let's just fight back".
With my calculations, a peaceful stand would be far more easier to get the wheels turning more than simply fighting back. Now most of you probably
have it in your head that a peaceful stand means gathering in some remote spot and picketing...not the case. Think of it as a rebelious teenager who
doesn't want to do...let's say the dishes. He/she will not do them regardless of the consequences because thier give-a-damn has been muted by thier
ego. Now think of this but on a much, MUCH larger scale. Let's say we turn the 500,000 fighting minds into a unified theory of getting things done
where no one will get hurt, and everyone can go home at night and see thier family after work. Add about 1,000,000 to that number just by people
positively sharing research to give to people that don't have a clue...that almost half of the US population by itself!
With that in mind, the most effective thing people would be able to do is what?...not pay taxes. Think about it...if half the US population just
decided to quit paying for the Lexus or BMW that thier government officials get to drive on a daily basis, something will get done.
But that is just a small effect that could bring out a positive change. There are numerous other things the "masses" could peacefully do that would
incite a change in the governments thinking, but I will leave it up to you to make the choice of a peaceful stand, or a fight-to-the-death with guys
that have been trained.
-but then again, this is just another wild imagination at work, by a redneck, in the back woods of Tennessee...take it as you will.
