Back in the 17th centuray, after they suffered much tyranny under the then King of England, a people resolved within themselves to finally make a decision. A decision that they knew one way or the other would change their lives forever. They weighed in the balance the ideals of personal freedom on one side and the surrender to tyranny on the other, and they chose to resist the then most powerful nation on the Earth for freeedom and self governance by, for, and of, the people of the United States of America. With this said, in the face of continued power grabbing, and rising tyranny here in America. The takeover of car companies, banks, and medicine, etc. What would it finally take for you to stand up and say no to power and resist for the cause of personal freedom and justice. Would it be if they took away your TV or the internet? Or if they imposed a national sales tax? maybe if they restricted where you could go or what doctor you could see, what would it be for you. At what point will you finally say you are not going to take it any more.

People always believe they have no power. They blindly go in and vote Republican/Democrat and then wonder why there's no change and things go from bad to worse. They sit there and bicker about which party is best and why the other is bad and don't realize both parties need to be put out to pasture. There are millions of people out here who don't like how things are run and yet can't seem to comprehend that they can make a difference. I have seen lately where Ron Paul has been gaining steam -- this is a good thing as I see it because this means some people are beginning to see a glimmer of hope: there ought to be (and are) alternatives to the status quo. We had a friend a number of years ago in Philadelphia -- an older guy who was very high up in banking and connected with the Democratic party (we believe he also had mob connections, but were not able to confirm that). Monthly, he would head down to Washington with a brief case full of money (we saw it...big bills...he couldn't help but brag a little). Anyway, he said, "That's how Washington has always been run and that's how Washington always will be run." Makes you think.

maybe we need to do more than just vote. even though in britain that would be a start after the crap turn out.
but we need to make them know what we want. stuff the vote.

Actions speak louder than words.


I feel that some kind of public unrest will come because people will eventually see they need to do. In like 2 - 40 years i think.

ron paul seems like a great guy with ideas that really support common sence, honesty and fairness thats why they are so great. thats why people are starting to believe in him.

I've only got that from videos i've watched youtube and ats. so i could have a clouded juddgement

I think most of us are already at that point to where we are sick and tired of being trampled by oppressive government and greed from all sides. The thing that we need is a Shepard to lead the way

I am resisting already. One does not need to take up arms to resist the corpgov right now. In fact for everyone that follows this below idea to its logical conclusion the Leviathan is weakened further.



You can do this now and it does not require violence but is very effective in reducing the power of the beast by feeding it just as little as possible.

I'm glad to see young people like you starting to get involved. Maybe you can make the world a more peaceful and better place. God only knows my "Baby Boom" generation hasn't lived up to its potential. My son (18) is like you -- he's actually interested in politics, which so many kids shun (probably because it can be a little confusing -- or daunting to go against older, more established men).

No...the US. We are originally from the Midwest, but have been transferred throughout the States for my husband's job and have really gotten to know a lot of different kinds of people. We live in Atlanta now. I like England, though -- nice country and people. Still want to get to Scotland as my family has history there, but haven't had the time. Some day...
