I am a Patriot, a Constitutionalist, a soon to be NRA member, and a defender of freedom and rights. They can label me whatever they will, and I will
wear it as a badge of honor. My family members didn't fight and die in some of the biggest wars to prevent tyranny from taking hold to sit idly by
and watch our liberties stripped away in much the same fashion that these scanners strip away our clothing. When will people start to realize that
what is happening in the USA is very similar to what was happening in Germany pre-WWII. The populous was brainwashed, the Jews were rounded up, and
they started their campaign of destruction and total annihilation of freedoms in Europe.
This is no longer a left-wing/right-wing issue. This is an American issue. Our forefathers warned us of this over 200 years ago, and yet we as a
collective populous are not seeing it. You are all to blame just as I am. We didn't "wake up" until it was knocking on our backdoors, and yet now
that we have seen it, it is still possible to change things for the better. We can do this without violence. The FOIA is one way. Demand
transparency and force them to reveal what they are planning. Arms should only be taken up as a last-ditch resort when nothing else can be done. Are
we close to that point? Not yet. We won't be there until the day the tanks are rolling down the streets and we have to keep our heads down and be
quiet. When that day comes, if I'm the only one left, I won't be afraid to fight. I'd rather die on my feet than submit on my knees.
We all may just be "arm chair posturing" to some, but I can tell the level of commitment and honesty in some of the poster's words. We need to
break the chains of fear, and tell our government in a collective voice to screw off, back down, and let us have our life, liberty, and pursuit of
happiness. One hundred years from now, history will either speak of the great accomplishments of the American people in the second American
Revolution, or they will simply state that we were all stupid and let this happen to ourselves. We need protection from our own Government, yet we
are undeserving of heroes because we haven't learned to stand for ourselves. Or at least that concept has been wiped from our collective
The day will come where you have to make a decision: fight, or submit like a dog on a leash. Think about it. The only thing holding some back is the
fear of death. Why fear something that is inevitable anyway? My uncles and grandfathers feared death while in the jungles of Vietnam, or in the
English Countryside during WWII, or in the Pacific during the same conflict, yet they fought. They fought to preserve the inalienable rights of
human beings, because they knew of something greater than themselves.
The will is still there, and we need to "awaken the sleeping giant" once again.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and much love.
Peace be with you.
