Exclamation Words for thought

"When the people fear the Gov't, that is tyranny. When the Gov't fears the people that is Liberty"

-Thomas Jefferson


So do you fear the Gov't?

I have no fear in the government. I'm probably too young to care anyways.

What about when the people fear the government because the government fears the people?

I don't fear them in a physical way, but I fear they are fucking me/us over in the future when it comes to finances. I fear them taking more of my money every check.

I fear having silver spoon fed people leading the way, when they have no perspective of normal reality.

there is no normal reality, there is only reality...

their reality involves getting wealthy off of your labor... your reality is being a slave to them

Cooter couldn't agree more so the question stands how do we bring the silver spoons to our reality without inhibiting the ability for those that work hard to reap the fruits if thier labor?

Something our feds. might want to consider.

What is the number 1 trigger for a revolution throughout history?

Hunger.


In the month of November, December, January, February, March, May. How many people where layed off each month? The #'s are staggering to say the least.

What will happen when the 2+ million people run out of un-employment?

The food banks are all ready pleading for more donations.
The people that where layed off in November are off the un-employment list because they are no longer receiving benefits. How bad do you think it will be by the end of Summer?



All men should know Honor first, above all else!

Honor is not holding your hand out for something you did not earn.
Honor is not forcing your ideas, or belief on others.
Honor is not something given to you by way of job, or title.

Honor is learned, earned, practiced and respected by all decent men and women.

There won't be a revolution. If the people did get smart and revolt, the UN and NATO troops would be sent in to mow us down.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

The government sucks ass...Just a bunch of Slapdicks and Ass Clowns worrying more about their image or under the table payments then solving problems and trying to better the lives of the little man. I think the whole system is corrupt...Congress sucks ass and the President sucks ass(not only OBama, but others as well)

Also one of the biggest things we should concern ourselves with is the prevention of the next election from being a sham, he loses his title as commander and chief and I don't believe the military will just let him stay in office so his only hope is for a sham election. Also alot of those I know that voted for him that aren't welfare babies are getting upset about the new taxes they have to pay that he promised during his campaign they wouldn't.

Cause clearly that shit happens in those situations. Have you read up on the modern UN/NATO and their actions in the last 13 or so years - at least since the Bosnia, Croatia, Hungary - etc deal?

Hell, it's America - UN/NATO won't help do shit here. They'll just pick their noses anyway.
