Well if you don't understand this mentality, you obviously have no grasp of the ideals this country was founded on. How hard is it to grasp that the
government has bounds, and that the government receives its power through the consent of the governed? If the government does not abide by the law
they are tasked with upholding, it is not only our right, but OUR DUTY as Americans to rise up against that tyranny. This is why the 2nd amendment was
included in the Constitution. This is all US history 101, so I do not see what is so difficult to grasp.
It is people like you who will ruin this country in the long run. Do you think the government cares whether the people are complaining about things
like the killing of American citizens at the whim of the president? No. And this is highly illegal and unConstitutional, a gross overstepping of
power. And this is not the only case of this happening in the US recently, not to mention just this past decade or so.
So if protesting the government, and asking them nicely to quit their illegal activities does not work, the only option left, and the one our Founding
Fathers took back in the 18th century, is to rise up against tyranny and oppression. So you should either educate yourself on the ideals of the United
States of America, and then stand up for what is right, or stop complaining about these ideals. They were not invented by me or any of us. They were
handed down to us by extemely brave men, men who risked everything to give you what you have today.
You have the right to speak your mind because of these same men and these same ideals, yet you fail to see that. So when you are criticizing us for
our intolerance of injustice, you are criticizing those who founded this country as well. Those who bled, sacrificed, and died by the thousands to
give YOU and all of us freedom. And if the government wishes to overstep its bounds, as was the case prior to 1776, it MUST answer for those
injustices. They have power because of the people, and they must work within the framework of a very good system, a system of checks and balances.
The president and congress are becoming more totalitarian every year, with all the special interest groups, etc, and you have people like Bush and
Obama who are not operating on the principals of democracy. And they expect people to sit back and do nothing? YOU expect us to sit back and do
nothing? This is serious business. And yes, it could work, as it has worked in the past. Not just in the US either. And to speak more about the 2nd
amendment, this is why our Founding Fathers implied that the average citizen was to own the same firepower as the military, for just such an occasion
as the one the government is forcing us to approach.
They wish to call people who stand for the Constitution traitors and terrorists, yet this is nothing more than propaganda aimed at soft-minded people
like you. It is there in black and white in the Declaration of Independece and the US Constitution, so you cannot come back and say I am wrong. I
doubt that those who need to read this post will actually read it, because they do not want to realize they are wrong. They want to keep living in
their fantasy country whether everything is peachy. Well here is a newsflash Walter Cronkite...Thing aren't. Zoolander reference.
