Skip to comments.A Call To Arms: We Will NOT Obey
Posted on 01/16/2013 10:02:32 AM PST by TrueKnightGalahad
APOLOGIA: I intended to post this as a comment to another post, but reconsidered and decided to post what follows on my own. I hope that Jim and the rest of the Merry Bande of Freepers will pardon the creation of a vanity thread, though vanity has nothing to do with it. I hope to foment discussion on this issue and, perhaps, revolution.
We Will NOT Obey!
This sordid, criminal administration is forcing its version of change, of transforming the essence of America, down our unwilling throats. In conscience, by all that we hold dear about this grand experiment in freedom and liberty called the United States, we cannot, we must not, and we WILL NOT obey. If disobeying unjust laws is criminal, then criminals we must become. We Will NOT Obey!
When the President flouts the Constitution, the legislative powers of Congress, and the peoples will, and rules by fiat and Executive Order, in the same manner as any of his fellow third-world thugs and dictators, his rule in illegitimate, not to be enforced, not to be obeyed. We Will NOT Obey!
When religious institutions are ordered to violate their fundamental beliefs, and pass out free abortifacients and contraceptives, or appoint and dismiss their ministers and priests subject to government oversight and regulation, We Will NOT Obey!
When we are compelled against our will to purchase goods and services we do not need or want, like mandated health insurance passed without our consent in the dead of night, we must resist. We will NOT pay fines and penalties for not participating in ObamaCare. We Will NOT Obey!
When our inherent right to protect ourselves and our property are subjected to the capriciousness of government whim, we have lost the very means of protecting that most fundamental of rights, our right to life. We must not relinquish that upon which all other rights are founded. We Will NOT Obey!
When quasi-fascist organizations like the EPA use brutal threats and intimidation to prevent landowners from making use of their hard-won property, we must stand our ground against the jackboots, and tell them to get off our land or Else. We Will NOT Obey!
When an illegitimate president purports to be our countrys highest elected official, our Commander-In-Chief, despite the fact that his father was of British nationality, he is not a natural-born citizen of these United States as mandated by the Constitution. When this usurper sends our young and brave off to fight illegal wars in support of his Muslim Brothers, we will not go, we will not follow illegal orders. We Will NOT Obey!
When this administration demands that we not enforce duly enacted laws, from ignoring illegal immigration status to undermining the Defense of Marriage Act, we must take a stand as citizens and, if necessary, enforce the law with our own hands, through the powers of Citizens Arrest and Grand Juries. We Will NOT Obey!
When an imperial judiciary attempts to seize power from the citizens, imposing their own prejudices on the people rather than enforcing the laws under which we the people choose to be governed, we will not follow their mandates, we will not allow free citizens to become their slaves. We Will NOT Obey!
When laws are passed that force discrimination and unequal treatment based on race, or sex, or income, or any other invidious category, we have descended to the lowest forms of injustice and iniquity. Laws that violate our God-given rights as equal citizens before the law are unconstitutional on their face and by their very nature, despite what some judicial masters may claim. We Will NOT Obey!
When our livelihoods and property are stolen, via judicial legerdemain or brute force, from the rightful owners and given, by political fiat, to favored cronies, the connecteratti and presidential buddies, we must resist with all our might, and guard our rights and our properties whatever the cost. We Will NOT Obey!
When government commands us to permit the slaughter of the most innocent of us all, and forbids us from protesting this evil murder lest we be jailed, we have become little better than Nazis following orders. We Will NOT Obey!
Our Founding Fathers gave their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor to establish this nation. Can we do less?
I stand with you, the author and the FRiend.
COME AND TAKE 'EM.
Those that take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and then work to subvert it should never be obeyed.
Thanks to all for your support. Back to work now...but I will be back this evening, angrier than ever.
The lawful Republican form of Democracy created by the founding fathers is being dismantled by would-be dictators. We are witnessing an internal coup. It is unlawful to advocate the overthrow of government, but is it unlawful to advocate the overthrow of usurpers?
Remember the Alamo
Remember Goliad - I will give my Right Arm
The men assembled in a small room in Philadelphia on a warm afternoon and started writing the Bill of Rights. Ben Franklin wondered off toward the window, opened it and lit his pipe. John Adams was at the table and said that he wanted the right to a free press, in order to keep the government honest. Thomas Jefferson grabbed a quill, dipped it in the ink bottle and started to write.
Washington asked for the right to assemble.
Hamilton wanted to allow everyone to worship in the way that they thought was right.
Paine wanted to petition the government for redress.
Franklin started laughing quietly but was overheard by his friends.
John Hancock climbed out of his chair at the table and called to Ben and asked him to come and join them, to help write this document-—and what is so funny?
Franklin blew smoke out of the window, turned toward his friends and said Do you know whats gonna happen when King George sees this document that were writing?
Thomas Jefferson nodded silently, dipped the quill back into the ink bottle and started writing: Second Amendment, right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed
When Injustice becomes Law, Resistance becomes Duty - Thomas Jefferson
I will not OBEY, I will keep my GUNs.
Come and take them
Wish we could no obey but we will be forced to or jail/fine. Don't pay the fine and what is left, jail. Communists America is here.
Anyone touching my guns will be dead before they hit the floor. I don’t need 7 shots...
Good sentiments and I DO agree.
His proposals are small right now and they do not directly affect any of you. They go to your Dr.s and they carve out for themsleves another exemption to HIPPA: that worthless piece of privacy “protection” that was always about stripping your privacy.
Do NOT answer any of your Dr.’s questions about any “social” issues. if a simple “no” or “none of your business”does not suffice, be more forceful. [I have tried this with somethings like when a dr asks for a ss# and usually you don’t have to “comply”.]
But beyond those feeble measures, we hold the House. We have got to hammer on our own party heads to stand and remain strong against this cretin.
I know I have e-damn-nuff. He counts on us “being reasonable” and depends on our willingness to obey the law. When the laws are patently illegal, I just quit and have no interest in obeying.
When your Highest Court cannot bring itself to strike down a horrendous piece of legislation and argue that its their job to figure a way to make it pass constitutional muster then indeed we are lost as a Republic.
I no longer feel as bound to follow such tortured reasoning which ironicly becomes the law of the land.
We are everywhere.
Ok. A lot of justifiable anger being expressed here. But anger expressed on a website does not equate to action.
Just saying “WE WILL NOT OBEY!” may make us feel better, but it doesn’t DO anything. What are we going to do??
There are a couple of issues. 1) Does an Executive Order issued by the POTUS equate to the law of the land, or is it simply an order that affects the agencies of the federal government? If it has the effect of law (and was always intended to have the effect of law) why have we wasted billions upon billions of dollars funding Congress??? Just give the dictator his due and be done with it. 2) If the political elites surround any of the Amendments with so much garbage as to make the original intent null and void while giving it the appearance of still having meaning, do we still have any Rights?? Obviously, the answer is no. Zero and the political elites know that if they just strike down the 2nd Amendment, we will get angry (but, will we take action?). But, if they load up compliance with those Amendments with so much frivolous paperwork and procedure as to make the EXERCISE of that Amendment a veritable waste of time and effort, are our rights still guaranteed?? And, if we sue in court to have the garbage overturned, will the court acknowledge that we have standing to bring such an action?
Politicians and the left understand one thing - if we want to get their attention, we HAVE to TAKE TO THE STREETS EN MASS!! Making empty threats about elections and sending them nastygrams doesn’t make NEARLY as much of an impression on the political elites as few million of their constituents gathering in the streets to protest!!
So, while I respect your manifesto and agree with the principles stated therein, there MUST BE a CALL TO ACTION!!!
The Pledge of Allegiance
I pledge Allegiance to the flag and to the Constitution of the United States of America and to the Republic for which they stand, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.
The 20th century was disastrous for the USA. Marxism moved in incrementally and because it didn’t appear to be bothering the majority of us, we did nothing. We saw what happened to Ruby Ridge and Waco, to the native American reservations, the Japanese, etc., and we sort of felt that it was not our problem, or that the ‘good’ people in government would act to make things right. It didn’t happen, of course, so now we have 2 parties that are on the same path to full Marxism. One slower than the other, to be sure, but both are headed that way. The problem is to whom do we turn to lead? I doubt that we could agree on as few as 2-3 people because the media has tarnished our best so that many of us believe the lies, as well. Problem is: there are NO PERFECT PEOPLE. We are going to have to look carefully at those who are speaking out, those who are standing up, and try to rally support behind them. I’m for a new political party, myself. The GOP seems to have made irrevocable agreements with the democrats over the years. The dems don’t hold to them, but we are forced to or they take to the public and decry our breaking their trust. Our side doesn’t do the same. I know they have no stomach for it...and to honest, most of us would not. However, the time has come to stand up and be counted. If we do not, we are essentially saying that we either don’t care, or that the issue is not worth it. At what point does it become?
Obama is prodding, provoking a fight...not with the GOP, but with law-abiding citizens. He wants US to cross the line first, draw the first blood, then he can say that his actions were necessary for the good of all. For the children, you know...the dems favorite political hide out. As Mark Levin says, among others (Rush, etc.) we have to be very cautious. We need to try to not break the laws of the land. Our action HAS TO BE in reaction to a deliberate act of lawlessness by the government. Yes, I know that they are being lawless right now, but it would not be in our best interest or favor to start shooting, or have an armed conflict over Obama’s WORDS. We need to start organizing a real lawful rebellion first.
All I’m saying is to be careful that you do not bring a swat team to your house in the middle of the night. And, by all means, let us keep our heads. We cannot be reactionary. That usually results in poor judgement and more harm done than good.
I would love to comply but I sold all of my guns at those terrible gun shows. Im considering putting a sign in my front yard saying that we have no gums. Then i can get a multimillion dollar grant from FedGOVCO and retire early. I still can’t figure why they attached “Gun show” to the fact that they are trying to make it illegal for me to sell my gun to you as a private citizen. All the vendors at gun shows do a NICS check on anyone buying a gun from them.
PS I spray painted two of my baseball bats black. Does that make them “assault bats”?
‘Get off my lawn!’
Be careful indeed. Rash action at this point would counter productive. Join NRA and/or similar groups. Encourage your friends and family to join. I read that the ranks of NRA have jumped 250K, bringing the total to 4 Million members. Surveys show that 47% of homes have guns. That is almost 150 Million potential NRA members. There is power in numbers.
No wishes about it - they cannot make one obey, they can obly threaten until we cave in and surrender to fear. Their type of compulsion is at the point of a gun - uh-oh, gotta bleat like a sheep, or they'll penalize me. They're not prepared for millions to say, "We will NOT obey" and mean it - how many can they cram into already over-crowsed jails? Then jail it is, if it comes to that. For I will NOT obey!
The caption should be “COME AND GET IT” which would be more descriptive and a fair warning.
