I have never let anyone walk all over me and won't start anytime soon. And I refuse to live my life in fear of being on some list or in
some camp because I spoke my mind. Suppose that could be the death of me oneday.
It's not even so much about being stealthy or sneaky. I'm having a hard time communicating my thoughts on this and that's my bad entirely. It's
about choosing battles carefully for ones that mean something and winning is actually accomplishing something in the end.
If this petition gets the 100,000 signatures (or they honor the 25k based on start date) for a 100% success.....all these names are on the record and
DHS reports now for being dissidents strong enough to make such a rash statement and sign names to it. Yet, what was actually accomplished? That's
the part I look at first.
#1. Is a battle one that can be won?
#2. Is victory worth the sacrifice of fighting it?
In some cases? The above is an absolute YES. After all..being outspoken in my case hardly covers the added visibility and lists I was added to by
standing with Occupy. I couldn't have known HOW extensive it would be at time, but I suspected. Screw 'em... That was a battle worth fighting
because I deeply believed in the outcome if it could have been carried to that conclusion. It wasn't...but I don't regret the stand. It was still
worth the outcome and cost I'll may someday have come back on me when I least expect it from my choices there.
That's where my thinking is. I'm absolutely never going to take being walked on...and I'll go on bent knee for no one. I think we have the same
thinking, just different criteria for what battles are worthy of the effort and why.
