You stood by and did NOTHING when the Patriot Act was signed.
NONE of you did sh*t when SOPA and PIPA were being kicked around.
When the TSA started molesting people at airports, when presidents began assassinating citizens with impunity and people were detained indefinitely
without proof WHERE WERE YOU?
That’s right, you were nowhere. You will not resist, why keep up this preposterous act?
The founding fathers wanted you to have access to guns in the off chance you needed to overthrow a corrupt government but none of you have done SH*T
about it for the last hundred years.
So why should you even have the ILLUSION you have power? You mishandled and misused your responsibility to shoot beer cans in the woods.
Your founding fathers would have weeped if they saw what the once great United States of America have become today.
Your country was built upon freedom, in a time when dictators and kings ruled. You speak so highly of your precious freedom but do nothing when it is
taken away from you.

You do realize that there was a time in our history where armed rebellion would work, right? And you also realize that if 165 million Americans
marched on D.C. With high-powered weapons and unlimited ammo, every last one of them would be killed, while accomplishing absolutely nothing except
making life harder for the remaining 165 million, right?
Do you know why I don't start a shooting war against the most powerful military force on the planet because of TSA scans and pat-downs? Its because
even though I know it's all just for show anyway, I simply do not give a damn if it takes me 2 minutes longer than it used to, to get through
security at the airport. If it makes the dumdums (the 90% least intelligent among us) feel more safe, i'm willing to sacrifice that 2 minutes. In all
honesty, I get through security faster now than I did 15 years ago. And no, I don't care if a $10/hr security person can see what type of pens I have
in my carry-on bag
I didn't sell massive amounts of contraband to raise the capital to buy a nuke and take out the Capitol Building when SOPA was being kicked around
either. Do you know why? Because the internet is alive and well, and frankly, I was looking forward to seeing the hackers of the world take the whole
thing down if necessary. I also simply do not care enough to protect intellectual property thieves to go off and start killing people, many of whom
may be scumbags, but they're also fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, etc. To somebody.
I'd you honestly think that for things which really do not disrupt or ruin our lives we are going to go to violent war with the US government, and
leave our children fatherless, just so people don't have to go through security at the airport, or to defend their ability to pirate software online,
you are simply a psychopathic sociopath. It concerns me that there are people like you who think we should take up arms and instigate violence (likely
resulting in our own deaths while accomplishing nothing) for such small and petty matters.
Someone kicks in my door to take my family away to a concentration camp, i'll blast them to hell, but they can pat down all the airline passengers
they want - I'm not ashamed to say I have no interest in risking my life over that.
I would feel wrong belittling, except for the condescending tone of the OP. That had to be one of the most ridiculous, asinine posts, anywhere on the
internet, I have ever read. Did you even think about the reality of anything before posting that? I'm embarassed for you - and I sincerely hope
you're not going to start an armed rebellion wherever you live if they cancel your favorite television show, or if police dare to enforce speed
limits (those fascists!)
