This happens all too often. A foreigner comes in and spouts their rants, as you have every right to have, but you truly don't understand the
Your definitions you provide lead everyone on to believe that The Founding Fathers of the United States were not patriots because, as you said,
There is nothing patriotic about taking up arms and advocating acts of terror against your fellow countrymen because you don’t agree with their
What was the Revolutionary War based upon again? Oh that's right, it was a punch of people taking up arms against despotic leaders because they
didn't agree with their views. Fastforward nearly 250 years and you have a very similar scenario with the leadership roles brought very much close to
home. These people calling for civil unrest and Revolution aren't doing so against other American's. Anyone who is fighting for the Constitution
knows that other Americans have their rights to say and practice whatever the hell they see fit, so long as it does not impose on everyone else.
What this Revolution would be against, and this is where everyone seems to get hung up, is those in power who are actively trying to debase the
Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land, a process that has been occurring by our government knowingly for many years, only recently have actions
been standing on the lines of straight up infringement of our rights and TREASON against the American people and the rightful government.
If that is not a right to take up arms and fight, then in your mind there is nothing. You would rather wait until all our weapons are gone and we are
slaves under a dictator to take up arms. What arms? Would we take up arms like the people during the Mao Revolution in China after THEY were disarmed?
Or what about the Germans or Austrians after THEY were disarmed?
It is simple fact, that once the 2nd amendment goes, the rest go with it. Therefore, the idea of fighting to preserve that amendment is a good one in
my eyes, for if we don't then we sacrifice ourselves to whatever wills the government has in store for us.
