Ah yes, I've done this too (I am not one who uses the same screen name for multiple sites) but even so, quotes and whole pieces of work have been spread out and about. There is definitely no guarantee that what you write, will stay where you wrote it. Worth keeping in mind.

It is rather disconcerting to read that some hold discussion of armed revolution - a duty cited in the Declaration of Independence - to be unconstitutional. I would certainly appreciate it if someone would point me to the appropriate part or portion of that document (i.e., the Constitution) where I may be able to study for myself where those who had recently fought their own armed revolution declared the discussion of same by future generations to be "illegal" - especially in light of the duty to overthrow tyrannical governments. Obviously, in writing of tyrannical governments, one would not be referring to the government of the United States - would one??

Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof -
Just my own opinion: Most are full of it. Sorry, but they are. The thing is that some just don't know it yet...and it won't be until they stand there facing it that they'll know either way. Most who promise you they'll be there WON'T. Most who say they can CAN'T. Most who say they do DON'T. ...and even fewer will be there when it comes...
Me? I'm quitting smoking as a resolution. Four days in and it's going great.
