My family fought against British tyranny at the Battles of Cowpens and King’s Mountain. If tyranny needs to be resisted today, O’m sure there are enough Americans who will step forward to challenge it.
Be vigilant and keep your powder dry....
We are past the point of what the Founder’s intended the Second Amendment to rectify and return liberty into the hands they worked so hard to enshrine, should it ever be usurped from them.
A ‘revolution’ today would be a bloodbath and more in-line with the French experience with revolution than what our Founders were engaged in.
Sad fact of history and the moral make-up of this people today.
A fact known by the MarxoFascists, who NEED a bloodbath in order to succeed in completeness where they are taking us.
At some point, probably after about six-months of triple-digit inflation, riots will start in the inner-cities when the amounts on the EBT cards aren't covering trips to the casinos like they used to.
Whoever survives the following five years wins the "revolution."
I don't think Ubama is going to be among them.
Gotta rout the media first.
Might want to start a UHF/VHF net first.
The leaders would be labled terrorists, placed on the president’s kill list, which is now legal, and the sight of predator and reaper drones crisscrossing our skies would become commonplace.
One never knows what precipitating events may occur that lead to acts of liberation from threats to the well-being of the nation as a whole and seek to overthrow a ruling elite and corrupt cabal of politicians and wealthy and the misguided who benefit most with the ‘status quo’..
Taxes, guns, suicide attacks.. take your pick.
Nope, no one knows.. but we’ve seen numbers of all of them go thru the roof this millenium.. Progre$$ive agendas don’t come cheap, yaknow.
I very much suspect that there was voter fraud in the last election. Add to that all the media bias. And, to be polite, much of what Obama is doing bends the Constitution.
But Obama won a relatively free election. He is the people's choice. This is not 1776. Obama is VERY bad for this country, but he is not George III (yet).
My 5th great-grandfather, John Carpenter, was George Washington’s neighbor near Mt. Vernon, travelled with him during his survey of the Western Reserve, fought with him in the French and Indian War and the Revolution.
I pray I have some of those genes in me as I suspect I’ll need them in the coming days.

President Obamas supporters love to call him the cool President, a no drama guy, and generally like to claim he is unflappable in office. Whatever the truth of that claim, there is one thing for sure: he doesnt sweat the small stuff. Like following the law. During his four years in office this president has shown he couldnt care less about the laws hes supposed to be governed by as president.
This lawlessness started all the way back before he even became president. It was widely discussed in 2008 that he blatantly violated campaign donations laws by refusing to put in controls on his website that would prevent illegal, foreign donations. And weve only just learned as 2013 began that his 2008 campaign was levied the largest fine ever imposed on a presidential campaign for violations of campaign laws. In January the nation learned that the FEC fined Obama $375,000 for campaign reporting violations.
Once he became President, Obama immediately began misuse his powers to control Washingtons regulatory machinery to pay back pals and warp rules for ideological reasons. This president generally wields his regulatory powers with kid gloves to pay off supporters while at the same time that velvety hand holds a cudgel to smite foes.
One of his very first moves when he was swept into Washington, for instance, was to begin a program to give big payoffs to his union masters.
His first move was to put a union operative in as the head of the Department of Labor. Hilda Solis had been a union stooge her entire career and that stoogery only increased when Obama took office and quickly put her in charge of the DoL. This is significant because the DoL is supposed to be an unbiased arbiter between labor and the business sector. Installing Solis as the Sec. of Labor signaled a move to turn the DoL into an adjunct of Big Labor instead of an unbiased arbiter and Solis quickly moved to use the DoL as a weapon against the business sector.
Immediately Obama changed union reporting rules that cut unions slack in reporting their financial situation to the government. No more would unions be expected to account for themselves. Instead, unions would be given all the cover they needed to hide funds and expenditures from both government and union rank and file members.
This wasnt his only pay off to unions. Hes continued to bend rules, vacate laws, dismantle transparency regulations, and turn a blind eye to union violations during his whole time in office.
Obama has also used Executive Orders to skirt both Congress and the law. Take for instance, Obamas attempt to implement the Disclose Act through the back door using an EO. The Disclose Act was an effort that failed in Congress but Obama thought he could just ignore Congress and implement it anyway.
This fits with Obamas announced policy that he would go around Congress whenever he feels like it.
Obama has also engaged in a strong campaign to misuse the Department of Justice for political purposes. His emplacement of Eric Holder as Attorney General was only the first move to turn the DoJ into a weapon against Americans he doesnt like. Writer and former DoJ lawyer J.Christian Adams has chronicled the extensive damage Holders DoJ has done to the country with his and Obamas politicization of the department.
In fact, the DoJ has been so ideologically pro-active that this month the federal government has been told to reimburse the state of South Carolina for court costs the DoJ unnecessarily caused as it illicitly attacked the state over its voter ID laws.
Obama has used the Environmental Protection Agency as a weapon repeatedly, as well. In only the latest example we find that a federal court has determined that the EPA overstepped its boundaries by idiotically claiming that water is a pollutant in order to force its will on state officials.
Another example of Obamas disinterest in following the law was his responsibility to report his upcoming regulatory changes, the last report of which was due in October but wasnt bothered with until December conveniently after the election. The earlier April report he never issued at all.
Then there was Obamas convenient change to the way the federal government defines poverty. Obama changed it so that poverty can never be shown to have gotten better. His new reporting scheme will forever define poverty as getting worse despite its actual condition either ways.
Obama also recently made a move to eliminate an embarrassing metric in the gathering of statistics issued by the Internal Revenue Service that shows how many Americans are moving, from where, and where to among the states. One can only assume the gathering of this metric was ended so that the steady flow out of highly taxed, deep blue states can no longer be tracked. In this way, Obama can help tax-hogging Democrats hide the fact that their policies are causing their states to lose citizens as those put upon folks move away to more prosperous, and usually lower taxed, states.
Sadly, no president before Barack Obama has violated the law, warped the regulatory scheme, and used his power to as ideologically as often as he has. None.
Suffice to say, there are many, many, many more examples like those Ive listed here. There have been so many that it would take a book or several to chronicle all Obamas ideological changes and violations of the law committed since 2008.
In fact, a few have made the attempt to elucidate that record.
To name just two, the aforementioned J. Christian Adams wrote a book titled Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department, detailing the abuse of power at the DoJ.
Another good book on Obamas lawlessness is Phil Kerpens Democracy Denied: How Obama is Ignoring You and Bypassing Congress to Radically Transform America and How to Stop Him.
Obamas lawlessness is so voluminous that even the book titles about the subject cant be short! And he isnt done yet, either. Thanks to the American electorate, he has another full four years to indulge his lawlessness.

'He' (as the founders called him or our government in our case) would have to start executing the good and honest people as they did to our founders.
I sure wouldn’t be planning it or talking about it online or anywhere else out in public. Treason has consequences....even the founders understood that
Glum prospect and costly. Worth it?
Hell yes, if needed.
Some people here are incredibly optimistic about the prospect. The last Revolution was a close thing, with no guarantee the colonists would win.
I wouldn’t be too cheerful about taking on the military head on. And if you kill civilians, you will alienate the public.
There is no "IF" in the equation, and further the opposition will decide what type "IT" is to be.
Theoretically, the revolution is late in coming!
Yes, the citizenry will be the ones responsible.
However, I do think that many of ‘da city-zens’ wouldn’t do anything, but attempt to frustrate the operations necessary to remove the foul cancer in the body American. If that frustration ever began to fester, (yes, I know what I’m saying!), until the operations can continue to save this nation, a possible vermin eradication may have to happen, first.
I agree with this blog post the guerrilla war would be urban:
- What will be the likely model of american insurrection, if “gun control” doesn’t “go well?”
