This is a topic I frequently allude to in postings dealing with the nature of the government of the United States of America. I have spent many hours
pondering just when the people should actually rise up because the government has gone too far. One of the three main times that I've personally
analyzed arises immediately after the upcoming presidential election, depending on how blatantly obvious the cheating is. The truth is that our
Founding Fathers, and those who fought for American liberty and independence, as well as the soldiers and citizens who made up the Confederacy during
the War Between the States, both would undoubtedly have taken up arms before the situation we currently face in modern times had ever arisen.
I am absolutely certain of that, judging solely by the actions of those heroic parties during their eras, coupled with their rhetoric, which clearly
stated how long they would absorb abuses from governments before they felt it absolutely morally necessary to take up arms. It is not a matter to be
taken lightly or nonchalantly, and they knew this, and we know this, but as I said, we have put up with more corruption than those two generations
combined it seems like.
And the worst part of it is that many of our leaders who came before the 20th century, and even some after that point, openly warned us of what was
going to happen unless we made a point to stop it, and if we did not act quickly enough, we would be standing in the exact spot we are now...Perched
precariously on a precipice; on one side there is a sheer drop-off, just low enough to spare life if one were to tumble over the edge, but high enough
to greatly leave any victims mangled. Then on the other side there is the government, steadily pushing us closer and closer, as it allots them more
wealth and power.
Eventually everyone has to ask themselves whether they are going to let the evil forces working within the government push them off solid ground into
the void below, not killing them but greatly injuring both physically and psychologically, or whether they are going to start pushing back against the
approaching hoard. We do not have much longer until we all tumble over the cliff, and once we start toppling, en masse, there will be fewer and fewer
people left to oppose the tyranny.
See, in this analogy, the antagonists don't want to kill the citizenry, at least not a large portion of it, because then they would have no one to
exercise their ill-gotten authority over. No, rather they want you to be alive, yet complacent. And once you fall into that pit with all the other
bodies falling in around you, you will have no choice but to be complacent, as any dissent that was harbored prior to the fall would not matter
anymore, because you would not be able to leave the void, unless you were so physically and mentally broken that they let you rise, knowing that from
that point on complacency is your middle name, as they say.
To get back to what I was initially trying to say, I am extremely leery of posting any precise details of what I have discovered, or rather "thunked
up," during my boredom infused brainstorming sessions, because I know what can and will happen unless one is very careful with what they say. It's
funny really, or sad, because the US government condemns the measures that other country's leadership uses to deal with dissent, yet they do the
equivalent over here.
On one hand the US states that those protestors overseas have a right and duty to push and even fight for "liberty" and "freedom," yet they will
not stand for it here at home. And the truth is that in America a person only has freedom and liberty if the government wants them to. If that person
does the slightest thing that could be construed as "anti-government (aka TERRORISTIC), then the hammer will come down with an un-Constitutional fury
that many Americans still deny exists in this country. Wake up people, if you haven't already.
One of the main conclusions I have reached, which is really obvious when you think about it, is that the amount of people needed to succeed in such an
undertaking would be massive. We just don't have that many people who not only truly understand how the US government operates, but who would also be
committed to taking the advice of their Founding Fathers and re-establishing a strictly Constitutional government in the USA. Not a sometimes
Constitutional government, when it suits an agenda.
It is going to take an abuse much larger than the Occupy and related protest movement corruption by the police before there even might be enough
strength to oust the people we supposedly choose for office. It's ridiculous when you actually think about it. Anyway, I am about out of space, so I
will sign off for this post. But I would gladly discuss this issue via PM with anyone who is interested in gaining and sharing knowledge, or discuss
any other issue that is on your mind.
