As for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

In 1989, Romanians decided they had enough. They didn't just revolt, they had a kangaroo court and executed the President Ceausescu AND his wife on Christmas Day. The security forces and police joined the crowds they were supposed to control. There's a powerful lesson there.
I was there.
I sincerly find life awkwardly funny sometimes. I moved here in Florida since a good while and i consider this country as my own right now. But it seems that i have arrived during stormy years where liberties are taken instead of given , liberties that i have fought for not long time ago.
There is just one issue that scares me about this place and that is : the students. When it happened in Romania , we the young ones started it , fought it and suffered from it . However , i might be wrong , but as i see it the majority of the young ones have no clue of what's going on and they are busy with their xbox , ipods and so on . Someone needs to remind most of the people around here that liberties that people fought for , for years and years are being taken away each day and that they need to wake up before they will have nothing left.
BUT , i am here and ready to go once again if it's needed because freedom is priceless and should never be given away under any circumstances.

I appreciate the story...but I don't buy it. Sorry. I hear all the revolution talk and see nothing being done. Everytime big-gov takes away a little more liberty, someone brings up this subject and then does nothing. They'll nickle and dime us till they own us all, while we whine and cry and shudder complain and do nothing. Some here on this post say, "...when the SHTF, I'll"...do this or that or the other. I don't believe it! My friends, the SHTF a long time ago on our loss of fredoms and it is really sad to see how we all (me included) just sit and do nothing. Lets face it we have our BOBs, our guns and ammo and we'll probably die on them from letting the big-gov crowd get us cornered while we are trying to determine if the SHTF yet! If anyone was really going to act it would have happened by now. Sadly, we became slaves to the NWO long ago by default. Show me where I am wrong, please I beg you.
