Revolution

http://markepstein.wordpress.com/200...you-in-or-out/

The great danger in historical revisionism is the potential for future generations to make the same mistake. Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt were no friends to the US Constitution, but few Americans know this fact. Even more egregious is the dearth of Constitutional knowledge in America. However, that is changing, which does not bode well for the Obama Administration.

I fear that if there were a successful revolution, whoever got power would just Cromwell it.

Revolution so we can install some more people who will feed off money and power.

Then we get to do it again.

I'm IN.

Thus far this is my favorite part: "Americans in general would return to a time when being a neighbor and helping one another was more important than receiving government largesse. America’s “elitists” would be marginalized or dead (Hollywood, professors, career politicians, etc.), and inner-city youth would be working on public projects for food and shelter, with misbehavior or criminal activity met with summary execution. All “guilty” findings for rape and looting would result in execution, and prisons would house only those currently serving sentences, awaiting trial, or sentenced under a new War Crimes Act. Death Row would be abolished and those that had been awaiting execution would be shot."

Back to the article.


My bet is that the large majority of the population doesn't have the stomache for what this article describes. Personally, I would relish it, as it would be HISTORY in the making. The dawn of a new world. The first steps of a new society, unspoiled by the current morass of immorality, greed, and den of thieves who rule us all. Difficult? Absolutely.

A payoff far greater than can be imagined? Absolutely. While it would be difficult initially, once life is re-established your standard of living would be sooo much higher, we would have less crime to worry about (the cocksuckers would know they'd get dealt with on the spot), and you would no longer have to worry about what those snakes in DC were planning next.

As I see it at least...

During this revolution, it would be a prime time for a foreign nation to attempt an invasion *cough* china *cough*

Talk of revolution has been going on for decades. I can't wait for our leadership to change.

Yeah, but he died while in office.

There are a lot of intangibles that we would face now that haven't ever been issues.

1/19/09, the last day of Free America.
Pericles "Freedom is the sure possession of those alone who have the courage to defend it. "

"[T]he people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the same when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it." --Samuel Adams

A rifle behind every blade of grass, and slanted eyes to take anger out on.


Easy enough...

Those chinamen would become cocky from easily mowing through california, but once they made it into Arizona or Nevada they wouldn't stand a chance as we would be waiting for them. Come to think of it they might be doing us a favor by taking out California.

Don't cupple up without protection.

Besides that, an invasion would only serve to unite our people. Which would speed our recovery.

And the majority of our debt problem would be erased to boot?


Bring that shit on!
