I'm ready to fight for my rights but I can't do it alone.
We need some kind of orginization before we can accomplish anything.
If you want to have your human rights speak up now and lets do something!
So we can assume Empire that this is your take on the matter and you've bowed down to lick the feet of your masters?
You've given up hope and find the situation hopeless? If thats the case then I have only one thing to say to you from Americas past.
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”—Samuel Adams
You’re simply quoting one of “them”.
Thats not true and you know it. Samual Adams was one of the original revolutionarys,he stood up and declared his sacred life honour fortune for the formation of the land of the free,God bless his soul. Empire I have not yet begun to fight brother,these fools have not won anything,I live and will die a free man,prideful,belligerant and unbroken by no man or government ever.
Do not quit before the fight has begun my friend America is far from dead,you just need to get out to the rural areas maybe I dunno but dont you ever count me out of the fight. You forget sir from which we came.
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and…Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable--and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
You're a wussy too. Have you ever lived...do you know what it is to see death and win? Have you ever lived...stood on a mountain, or glided down a raging river by the seat of your pants...and win? Ever been in love and lost...ever had everything and lost it all...and came back stronger than ever?
You are as free as you want to be..... when you can say to hell with it all...grab your gun, an axe, a frying pan, and can go out on your on...no responsiblilities to any govt or society..man, you are free.
Quit whinning like a baby and get a life. You spout all that great philosophy horse stuff and still have no idea what you are talking about. You are as free as you want to be... go live life and quit making excuses.
Hi EMPIRE, I'm trying to understand your reasoning here. If you're working under the assumption that this is just another endless cycle, how can you say that this will continue on until we self destruct or mother earth ends us?
I mean, if this has happened time and time again...well which part are you referring to exactly? Civilization has collapsed before, but never have we self destructed entirely or has Gaia wiped us out.
I would agree with you that this is another cycle. I see this as the ending of an empire and a possible trigger of many this century for the collapse of civilization. What I don't agree with is that the end result is set in stone and none of our thoughts and actions really matter.
Sometimes in past history men have risen to the occasion and revolted against their oppressive government. Other times the corruption continues on until it destroys itself. Are you 100% sure the outcome of our society/civilization is a done deal?
When you say slaves, how so do you mean? Are you saying financially indebted, or by being a citizen of an oppressive government? You can't really say that our children and grandchildren will be financially indebted.
Nobody knows how this mess that has been created will end up. Everyone owes everyone else money and theirs not enough to go around! It's all irrational, makes no sense, and will probably have to collapse and be restructured eventually. Who knows for sure who will owe who when it's all said and done?
Have you considered that you have been the one who is brain washed? The idea there is no hope and we have lost and there is nothing anyone can do about it is music to the ears of oppressors and tyrants through the ages played back to them for they are the ones who wrote such a mantra and fed it to their subjects.
Some of us would prefer to die on our feet rather then live on our knees or roll over and lick the boots of our oppressors. For some of us it is just not in our nature to accept such defeat even if it is inevitable.
All men die, few men ever really live!
Dear Friend..Yes, I have done those things.... lived in a simple cabin for 3 years. Know what its like to lean against a tree and take a dump at 3am. I've heard animals I never saw eating other animals I never saw. Not GI Joe...maybe Jeremiah Johnson...not GI Joe.
I've lost everything, and started over twice...now I have a good life. I am happy and content....got everything I wanted...farm, animals, wife and kids... are they shackles? No...
Who are you a slave to? I pay taxes, but I like paved roads and an army to defend my country... I owe some money, but I borrowed it.
I owe some money, but I borrowed it. No conspiracy there...
I could have better things... but I am saving for us( me and the wife) for retirement ...at 62 dude...already have a place at the coast...paid for. Oh yea...I am a slave.... eating steamed crabs and drinking cold beer... on a sunny afternoon.
Hey, if I make my decisions to enjoy the things I want and do it...how am I a slave? It was God, my wife, and hardwork that got these things for me... not subversive enslaving NWO shadows.

Who? Sam Adams??
Can't be all that bad, I really like his beer....
Well, if EMPIRE is right, then move over Australia! Make room for Daddy....( though, I really fell in love with Stockholm when I was there...is that "Stockholm Syndrome"? )
