The Right News received the following email which we feel represents a large portion of Americans attitudes at this time in our history. One day, we just may wake up and find out that our country has been taken away by those in Washington.
From: A Concerned Citizen
Now first off, I am not trying to incite violence. I do have a question though. Why are these politicians surprised when desperate stripped people fight back the only way they can.
These politicians live in their ivory towers, surrounded by police, private security, and their teams of bulldog lawyers while they dictate how every common man and woman should live their lives.
When they implement laws that negatively effect people, it makes sense for people to get pissed. These pissed off citizens can respond in 1 of 2 ways.
1. Diplomatically, we can make phone calls, faxes, emails, organize town hall meetings all in opposition of these treasonous acts and what do OUR elected representatives do? They ignore us or even worse, try to spin everything we say into nutjob gibberish resulting in nothing. If in fact someone is actually successful in challenging them, the team of bulldog attorneys and endless funds only solidifies their decisions. It's a lose/lose situation.
2. Violence. This is the option that is funny to me. I was listening to the radio today and they were talking about the congressman who's BBQ tank propane line was cut. They began going on and on and on about how horrible violence is and how it is never justified. What's so funny about it? These people have effectively bogged the system so far down in BS, that the average person will never have a chance at undoing the damage they have done. Desperate people snap when they have nothing to lose and these politicians are surprised when people react with the only thing they got left?
I have never been the type of person to think the sky is falling, but I am worried for the first time in my life that things are going to unravel. Desperate people who have nothing to lose are going to snap more and more and there won't be a thing anyone can do about it. These politicians who refused to listen to the people who voted them in office are going to become the targets through their own doing, and the whole time they are going to complain that it isn't justified. Well, if they had listened in the first place, people wouldn't have had to resort to violence. It will be their own fault and it's going to be scary to watch.
I sure hope I'm wrong, but what else can be effective against teams of attorneys and endless money other than violence?
Vote em out in November? Yeah right, like the new ones voted in will be any different? What then?
Scary times we live in.
there is another option. Do EVERYTHING in our power to vote their asses OUT, OUT, OUT and fight, fight, fight for our values in the interim—selling to our children and the rest of the nation the value or our values.
Let’s bombard them with flowers and rainbows, that should work out pretty well.
We need to ghandi them.
Use the truth as an anvil, and peaceful resistance as our hammer.
Be “the new ones voted in.”
2006 - Our government is run by evil people like Bush and his cronies: any action to get rid of them is justified! They are doing things against the will of the people.
2010 - Our citizens are out of control! How DARE they try to tell their elected officials what to do? And how dare they be mad when we’re doing great work for them?!
Some things should not be said, so I will not.
Can anyone recall a time in American history when politicians lived in physical fear of ordinary, middle class, working Americans?
I don’t mean fringe whackjobs like the Weather Underground in the 60s and 70s or the so-called “anarchists” of the late 19th centurey.
I mean average, productive, tax-paying Americans like the Tea Partiers.
I can’t identify any such time off the top of my head (obviously, putting aside the actual hostilities of the Civil War).
Violence isn’t the best answer, but it is inevitable.
“...make phone calls, faxes, emails, organize town hall meetings...”
What happened last Sunday was proof positive that the left knows that the right are a bunch of PUSSIES who they can just roll over at will.
They will continue to shove their Socialist agenda down our throat until we can grow a pair.
I tend to agree but the peaceful resistance needs to be obvious, open and notorious. Mass protests. Shut down the highways. Strikes. All of the crap the Left did in the 1960s to rot decent society. Hammer these *sspipes the way they hammered us. Then we will see social change. Open, notorious and obvious...
Overall, how's that working for you the last 40 years or so?
Open, notorious, and obvious!
I like it.
Today's politicians with guilty consciences working overtime and thinking how they can possibly avoid their constituents who are not exactly pleased (in fact, anything BUT pleased) with their so-called "representatives."
It was disconcerning when Kruschev threatened to bury us all, and here we are living in fear of just that courtesy of Obamacare via Medicare cuts and death panels.
We have also allowed the media and film industry a pass for years as they brainwash and throw their values and judgments upon conservatives everywhere and have gotten away with it. Truth is the fight has recently just begun and it must be in every cell of America and of Americana! But I understand you anger and passion. This country will not go down without a fight!!!!!!
No, I cannot recall either..... But I do know I have never been so angry with our representatives nor have I ever been so terrified for our country with the administration that is in power. They are destroying this country worse than if an army had arrived on our shores.
Even Beck did not sound convincing when he said it...
