I saw this post in my morning mail, and came to the thread prepared to flame on with such intensity as to guarentee my banishment from ATS forever.
Once I began to read however I saw the wisdom of the words.
No flames for you, but a smoldering discontent with those "public servants" who at every turn trespass against "We The People".
We vote to outst those who have shown their hand as filthy traitors to the people, only to have those we send to Washington D.C. catch "Potomac
Fever", and gleefully take up the charge against the will of the people.
I've long joked that the best thing that could happen would be a nuke strike on D.C. when congress was in session.
While there is some humor in reading it, your post actually makes sense when carefully considered.
I wonder why if our government is really seeing to the best interests of the people they each and every one must be protected by legions of men and
women carrying automatic weapons, covering every possible high ground, and having the names of the discontents who have made public their
dissatisfaction with the things "our" government does?
Why does our government send untold billions to countries which clearly hate us, when there are hungry children in America? When every blizzard brings
news of our aged and disabled freezing to death in unheated hovels,while our "public servants" grow fat off the monies collected from taxes, and
squander the funds intended to see to the needs of our most vulnerable citizens?
Your post makes a lot of sense.
I feel like until we bring short ropes to the necks of the pretenders in D.C., and lead them to tall trees we shall not again be the most free and
prosperous people on the planet.
I think I'm starting to understand why they all need so many armed guards, and why they wish us to be armed with only flintlocks and slingshots.
Perhaps they need to remember that David killed the giant Goliath with a simple sling and a stone, and a mind that would not surrender to force?
If we are left with nothing more than a pocket full of rocks against their jackbooted thugs, we shall in the end prevail in our duty to shrug off an
unresponsive and oppressive govermnent if need be.
Thank you for the post.
I'm going to sit by my fireplace, clean my AK47, and wait for the knock on the door.....
