NOTE TO LURKERS: THE FOLLOWING IS SPECULATION ONLY, AND SPECULATION BASED ON AN UNLIKELY SCENARIO. I AM NOT AN ADVOCATE OF VIOLENCE, MUCH LESS VIOLENT OVERTHROW OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. DON’T YOU DARE PAINT ME AS SUCH BY HALF-ASS “QUOTING” THIS POST.
Outlaw Woman, the bottom line is that not every Freeper, much less every concerned American, is going to be able to make it there. So, no matter how many conservatives show up in DC, if the robber barons pull a Tienanmen Square, there will be tens of millions of gun owners outside DC who will know what happened.
There are 80 million gun owners in America. Let’s say that even after American Tienanmen only 25% of those people stood up to fight for their rights. That would be 20 million armed people. If the entire military and all law enforcement decided to side against the citizenry and Constitution (fat chance) they’d still be outnumbered 10 to one.
Fear is the only way they can keep us in line. If we are intrepid, we cannot lose.
What did your stepdaughter say when you told her what you’d do?
Your efforts at organizing grassroots patriotism and restoring our constitution rights is timely and needed. We are beyond the cusp and must do all we can to turn back the tide of tyranny sweeping our nation. I’ll do what I can to support and help these efforts.
Well... Nixon went to China. I'd have much preferred Hillary! to Zero. Possibly even over our media supplied Arizona maverick. At least, the bastard we ended up with can be strongly associated with the left to the sheep. Jimmie Carter is no doubt in second heaven, as it were.
Sigh. I guess it’s time. I don’t know if I changed or Free Republic changed, although I suspect the latter. Either way, I’m not on board for any of this. I don’t want any part of rebellion, even speculatively.
hmmmm....117 agencies...so many folks having to go out and get REAL jobs...tickles me to even contemplate it.
I suggest the immediate and complete abolishment of the EPA and the Parks Service. There has never been a need for these entities and there sure isn’t NOW. Bad ideas from the start.
CEEEEEEEya Carole Browner, you walking enviroloon nightmare!
If I said what I am thinking, I would get the boot!
Fine. Then sit down, shut up, pay half your income in taxes and wait in line for rationed health care!
I would give my life for the constitution now or anytime.
There would have to be HUGE numbers of people who show up.
I would walk from Florida to D.C. and gather people along the way if I thought we could peacefully get rid of the thugs in charge.
5 million very angry men into DC When???????
Its pleasant to think about the IRS not being able to pay salaries...because several million taxpayers stiffed them
Have you seen the recent charts of taxes collected this year compared to last year? That is by no means because of unemployment. The difference is too great.
Rebellion? How can restoring legal constitutional government be called rebellion? It’s not an overthrow or a revolution or even violence. We’re simply talking about restoring our rightful government as our founding fathers intended and provided for us.
Do you really want Hillary to be the interim President?
If it gets Obama out of the White House...YES! At least she is an American. We can vote her out in 2012.
I would bring my entire family of 6 to a march on Washington!
The next "first shot heard round the world" shall be brought upon by our new King George III currently residing all throughout DC in various manifestations We The People have unfortunately allowed to evolve into an oppressive and unConstitutional Fedzilla!
>Absolutely bring your children, grandchildren anyone you can get to go along. They wouldnt dare use violence against children and families and if they did, the next step is obvious.<
I understand the importance of teaching our children, but I heartily disagree, and if I was financially able to attend, I would leave my children with an older relative who would be able to care for them if they should suddenly become orphans.
The people in DC are capable of anything. Haven’t they proven that beyond a reasonable doubt in the last six months alone?
They would not even hesitate to use violence if pushed too far in their eyes.
Anyone remember Ruby Ridge and Waco?
Flame away if you must, but I fear for the safety of our littlest Americans.
