In this 13 minute video, set back in 1946, a brave set of men got entirely fed up when entrenched, corrupt city heads stole the ballot boxes at
gunpoint, and shoot one of citizens- obviously to misrepresent the local voters and declare for themselves a victory. The citizens proceed to get a
bunch of guns, and even explosives, and before the National Guard was even able to get there, they reclaim the ballot boxes in a dramatic shootout.
It is a true story, and I searched ATS. It has been mentioned at times, but I did not see a thread on it. Well it's time there was one, for those who
have not seen it. It underscores the need for citizens to keep their governments on a very short leash. Because give them any slack at all, and they
will trample all over you. And it is what is happening now, at both the federal and state levels. Highly recommended viewing:
It also underscores the need to keep an extremely watchful eye on the modern problems and vulnerability we have today with electronic voting machines.
And to that end, I want to remind you all of the testimony of Clinton Curtis:

But apparently there are people who think that the US government and the politicians who serve us would never attempt to do anything so illegal,
immoral, and hypocritical towards those who they represent. They are either gullible or uninformed. Oh but something like this could never happen in
America they say. Well it did. Nowadays it still happens, but moreso by manipulation and hidden tactics, as opposed to open actions like the one in
the video. We do need guns if we wish to preserve democracy, plain and simple.
its a long read but exactly how shady the cops behaived isnt listed in the wiki as they actualy took hostages the police took hostages......and we
never get to learn about this in school or anything so i think anything that sheds more light on this is a good thing
Sheriff Pat Mansfield breaks
off telephone conversations to Chattanooga Daily Times, stating "I can't talk anymore — there's mob violence at the County Jail right now. Things
are too hot here now. I haven't got time to talk to you — I'm standing in front of the door." he said hurriedly as he hung up the telephone.
Sheriff Pat Mansfield and Deputies Threaten Hostages 11:00 pm Sheriff Pan Mansfield and deputies threatened to kill three GI hostages held within
the jailhouse. The three GI hostages are Felix Harrod, Tom Dooley and Walter Ellis. Thousands of Rounds Exchanged 11:35 pm-12:40 am Thousands of
rounds of shots were exchanged between ex-GIs and an estimated 75 deputies barricaded in the McMinn County jail. No state guardsman had arrived at
12:40. Former soldiers were pouring lead into every opening in the brick jail. The officers' returning fire was weakening. Some GIs were firing from
ground level across White Street. Others were on roofs on the Power Company Building and other near-by structures.
Yup.. or as the locals there would say aaaahhh-yuuuuup.
Its between Knoxville and Chattanooga TN. I'm well familiar with the area and the people of the area. Many are hillbillies to the core. Understand
that I am using that as a term of respect. Messing with them usually ends poorly.
