“We are reduced to the alternative of choosing an unconditional submission to the tyranny of irritated ministers, or resistance by force. The latter is our choice.”
We are being pushed there.

The Examination of Doctor Franklin, before an August Assembly, relating to the Repeal of the Stamp-Act
Q. Can any thing less than a military force carry the stamp act into execution ?
A. I do not see how a military force can be applied to that purpose.
Q. Why may it not ?
A. Suppose a military force sent into America, they will find nobody in arms ; what are they then to do ? They cannot force a man to take stamps who chooses to do without them. They will not find a rebellion ; they may indeed make one.
Franklin basically telling the house that everybody "lost" their guns but if Britain persisted, they might just find a revolution.

I think they had the same Winter vortex we just had and wondering what heavy industries caused it?

With Boehner, McConnell, Ryan, Cantor, McCarthy et al as the loyal opposition it may come to that.
