It is in vain to extenuate the matter. The people have begged, “Please! Please! Provide us peace from your tax men, less regulation on individuals struggling for the simplest of success, more self privacy, freedom from brutal and unjust law enforcement!”; but there is no peace, privacy, or chance at uninhibited individual success. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the District of Columbia, our nation’s capital city, will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and unending dependency? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

So are they going to cut welfare? What about foodstamps? AFDC?
I don't understand the mentality of the people in this country. We give and give and give to people who do not want to better themselves. They get free education, free food, free money, free housing. Except none of it is free, all I have to do is look at one of my paychecks and it is very clear how these peoples lives are funded. But to take benefits from contributing members of society, people who offered the greatest sacrifice...it sickens me.
I know that it is little consolation, but thank you for your service to our country.edit on 8-10-2013 by newsoul because: (no reason given)

I should word it better, until they wont let us. A 10 million man march on D.C. to end this madness. I wish I could just stay in my home an wait it out but it is only so long before they come beating down our doors, if that happens its 10 to 1 with odds on their side, but if everyone was together we would be strong, they would have no choice but to back down, preferably non-violently. But if they open fire first, boom, 10 million or more to defend themselves.
I don't want war but they are pressuring everyone into it.
I never really got the term "free speech zone". What kind of hors#it is that?
So now freedom of speech is not permitted in certain places? WTF???!!!
Wow, we are treated like little b!tches.
"HEY YOU, THE ONE VOICING YOUR OPINION THAT IS YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT!"
"GET IN THE CORNER YOU LITTLE B!TCH!!"
