They whose ideals are progressive and lusting for monstrous government and heavy handed enforcers will resist the resistance from those who would refuse to acquiesce, but fortunately we still have a Constitution that greatly restrains what government can do to appease their sycophants, and what I know for a fact is that those who know the law...actual law not the legislative nonsense being passed off as law...will find many judges who would never dare break their oath of office and deny and disparage the rights of those individuals sharp enough to assert them in the manner that need be.

I will continue to do what I’ve been doing for the past several years. I will peaceful work to create the changes in our government that I believe we need. I will continue to be vocal and active in my community. I will continue to campaign for people I want in office. I will continue to inform people about what I believe is going on (good and bad).
I will continue to move forward…that’s all I can do.
Oh yeah, undoubtedly. It's the practice of create a problem, present a solution. If you psychologically strain the masses enough they will beg for a fix, no matter what the cost.Although I do agree that much of what is done is manufactured, I'm starting to think the ones in power see the economic system of FIAT currency as a runaway train. It's going to crash and burn. It's not a question of if, but when. The only thing I haven't been able to wrap my head around is why they didn't start measures to change it when they realized it. Is the system too far entrenched? Would any significant change have shocked the system too much? Was it just a case of mass corruption and wealth grabbing that the ones who could/can of made a change were just too busy accumulating what they could/can? I'm sure they knew this was coming. The real questions are when did they realize it, and why didn't they get on top of the issues when they did?It's interesting to think about how this time period is going to be remembered in 100-200 years. I don't think it's going to look favorably upon the leaders of today. In my opinion the majority will be remembered as either weak or corrupt.

And never forget, all the "crisis" you refer to are merely manufactured to be cattle prods. If they can't sell you on the idea at first, then a crisis can be engineered to convince you. "Shock and Awe" works on the American psyche as well as the Iraqi. Only it usually doesn't require bombs to shock and awe us. Normally all they have to do is manipulate oil above $120 a barrel, or put out some news that drops stock values by 5%.
