Our founders had dreams of an America free of tyranny and corruption. They desired a limited government that would keep order, promote freedom and stay out of people’s affairs. Without the aid of civil libertarians that kept our nation honest and true to our founding principles over the years, the dream our founders had may soon end if Americans aren’t careful
The founders were a special breed . They stood bravely against a State ready to hang them for not bowing before an unjust king. His majesty, King George III of England, was in for a great surprise!
Have you ever wondered what happened to the fifty six men who signed the Declaration of Independence? Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured. Nine of the fifty six fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War. They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.
That said, all you gun owners with your massive ammunition supplies will do nothing!! It will be another incremental take-over as the liberals have been doing for decades, only quicker now with their new messiah Obama. You Web patriots won’t do anything of substance when the push comes. Most talk their shit on Web boards and hoard their weapons/ammunition out in bum-fuck nowhere, and won’t have one clue as to how to initiate a resistance. The totalitarian movement will start in the urban cities and then work outwards towards the suburban and rural areas. Think about it.
HOWEVER, I FEAR THERE WILL BE NO CENTRALIZED EFFORT.
Some of you may die in your small individual quest for glory against the outward expanding Fed Gov, but I believe most patriots will just stand by waiting for orders that will never come. Face it; the average armed citizen will just accept the socialism rather than jeopardize the safety of their families. This age is no longer the time of patriots who were willing to sacrifice all to oppose King George or other tyrants. It is an age of comfort and security. It is no longer a time of sacrifice for liberty. Few even know what that truly means. The question will be if you have the fortitude to decide between freedom or death. The time is coming within most of our lifetimes. The gist of my screed is I highly doubt many of the self-proclaimed patriots on almost all forums with all their weapons and ammunition will put up a real fight if things go south.
Yes, you may defend your remote rural properties, but would you actually rally to defend our towns and cities if your Founding Fathers’ ideals are overcome by socialism and then on to a Stalinism or even a fascist dictatorship? At what point would you be willing to defend our Constitution against an onslaught of our inherent rights? I don’t think you will. I don’t think anyone will. We will just accept our fate and enjoy the bennies of our new socialist fedgov. As much as we all think we’ll be up on some ridge shouting “Wolverines!!!”, odds are heavy that that is not how it will really go down. The herd will contentedly chew its collective cud and hope they get eaten last.
This is not to say that the American spirit is weak but that military technology is so advanced as to make *any* kind of “guerrilla warfare’ resistance implausible. While we sleep in our theoretical secluded defense camp, one common thermal imaging device makes it possible for us to wake up dead without ever hearing the “boom”.
