The Lafayette County Republican Central Committee is proudly celebrating a new crazy billboard on I-70 near Grain Valley. It calls for citizens to "starve the beast" and "vote out incumbents" -- and if that doesn't work, "PREPARE FOR WAR."
(Excerpt) Read more at firedupmissouri.com ...
The government should fear the people, not vice-versa.
As for point #2: I will happily vote to remove any Republican that doesn’t voice conservative values.
....I LOVE IT!!
I know some will squeal like pigs over the billboard but I personally prefer intimidating government back into line to the alternative.
I wasn’t a freeper when Clinton was president. I was a new mom (had my son and twin daughters during that time), and probably my least political of my life because I was so busy with the babies.
Anyway, I’m thinking that this is way worse than when Clinton was impeached. I don’t remember people being so upset.
I’m in California, so out here it’s a bit different. I’m judging a lot of this by my family and friends in Texas. They’re the ones that are upset by this current administration.
Am I forgetting what happened during Clinton or is Obama just a ton worse than Clinton?
I, too will vote against my Republican Congressman (Pete Olsen) if he shows any sign of weakness in this fight to preserve our US Constitution.
2010 is coming
They must have seen this video!
See the ‘new’ democract at work.
What’s that little thing that starts off with, “We the people of the United States”?
“When the People lead, the leaders follow.
This sign is truly awesome. I love it that the People are finally bucking up & finding their voices & their courage. I pray that many more of these signs pop up across the country...maybe then these morons in office will finally realize that we mean business.
G.R.I.P. = Get Rid of Incumbent Politicians!!!!
I have never seen the people so enraged with the government as they are now. While Clinton wouldn't have had any qualms selling us out to the highest bidder, he didn't hate America. Hussein hates America and is out to destroy her.
That is your only choices.
Unless you are willing for thm to kill you. This is their intention. obama care will be the instrument they will use. Once it takes effect, the government will use it to strangle you with. Just as Hitler enacted the Nuremburg and Purity Laws to use against the Jews, obama and the Democrat Party will use obama care against us.
If you don’t believe it, and most people don’t, just wait and see. But most of the Jews did not believe what was going to happen to them under Hitler, either.
I already intend to vote out any Repub that signed onto any of the outrageous spending bills to appease their special interests...
Anger is growing.
Let us not forget that the Kenyan in the White House is not our only problem.
The Democrats in the Congress who have experience, who are birthed Americans. People who should know better, are behind him all the way in destroying America.
Passing stimulus in unheard of amounts, selling our sovereignty ,(which isnt their to sell) forcing Health Care on us (Unconstitutional), their stubborn refusal to admit the fraud in Global Warming, their push to raise our taxes to the point where we cannot pay and still survive.
Exactly. Jefferson: "Where the people fear the government there is tyranny. Where the government fears the people, there is freedom."
We are so fortunate - Pete Olsen is one of the very few truly conservative warriors. He despises what happens in Washington. Best friend the Tea Party movement ever had in Texas. Wish we could clone two more like him and put them in the Senate! At least we have one small area of Texas which is represented by someone who is totally for the people.
Wow! In my wife’s home county! I love it. Lexington is the county seat.
I remember in 1994 I was on a furlough in the States, and had driven to Lexington from my father-in-law’s farm to purchase a new Rugar 9mm.
I was quite early; nobody was in the courthouse square (where a cannon ball from the Civil War Battle of Lexington is still lodged in one of the collumns of the courthouse).
The only people I noticed at all was down the block in Hardies where they still came around and refilled coffee cups free.
I parked in the square and was reading. A man in grey Dickies came out all alone from the courthouse; the sun had barelly come up over the roofs of the the old Victorian houses. The man had a neatly folded US Flag and commenced to attach it to the flag pole ropes. He did it in a very solemn and respectful way-—it was obvious this was more than a task to him. As far as he knew at that moment, NOBODY was watching him, but he grabbed the ropes to raise the flag as if he had an audience.
I stepped out of my car and stood at attention, and put my ball cap over my heart. There was no anthem; all was still and quiet, except the Anthem playing in two men’s hearts.
When he had raised the flag, he took a few steps back and put his hand over his heart. About a minute went by. When he turned he noticed me, so I waved my ball cap at him and gave him a thumbs up. He returned the gesture and walked inside.
Besides the traditional farm families I know there, that is the way I remember Lafayette County.
That sign needs to be showing up all over the USA.
1. Starve the beast, keep your money;
2. Vote out the incumbents;
3. Repeat 1. and 2. as needed;
4. Failing the above, prepare for War.
God Bless those patriots! We need more like them...

and freedom that millions have fought for and died.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
LIVE FREE OR DIE
We better get on the stick up here and add the first part.
I may be naive, but how exactly does one go about that? April 15 rolls around annualy, and if you don't pay, they put a lien on your house. Delay long enough and find yourself in court, facing property confiscation & prison time. If we ALL withhold, maybe it would work, and I suppose that would be the intention of the Billboard. In any case, they will just print more and borrow more.
I say skip to step 4.
Is it http://oathkeepers.org ?
Obama is much worse than Clinton.
You have it right; no president has ever been as far-left, anti-American, marxist, socialist/fascist as the current holder of that office.
Excellent post John, very moving.
Clean the slime out of the sewer that is the US Congress. Throw them out in 2010 and 2012.
Watch and report ALL voter fraud.
OH yeah. At least one per state.
If anyone tells you that the Declaration of Independence is not part of the law, you can tell them that it was codified as the very first statute passed by the first Congress.
The people have a lawful right to overthrow the government just as the Revolutionaries waged war against the British. Legally, nothing has changed.
It is good that signs like this exist but it is also chilling to consider Revolution. We must root out corruption in Government and vote out those in power. Republican RINOs, Lefty Democrats, Lillie Livered Independents etc... Toss out the lot and replace them with Citizen-Politicians, Reformers, who will really change things. My ideas I have posted before:
A) Start a new Conservative Party and get people elected to Congress, state houses and all under its reforming banner—I do not mean a Ross Perot/Ralph Nader spoiler party but one with real teeth. Maybe just use it to run against RINOs.
B) Start a Reform-Republican Movement within the GOP with a set of clear Conservative goals and talk people into supporting this movement with treasure, work, and running new dedicated people outside the political network.Call them the Reagan Brigade or Palin’s Pitchforks or what ever but show the world what they stand on. A New Contract with a America or a Conservative Manifesto.
C) Do both—A) to scare Republicans into change and B) to bring these changes about. It is most important to rid the ranks of the GOP of Liberal Lite RINOs. We must stick to reform and a clear cut, simple, platform and demands. We need new faces to run— Michael Reagan, Jon Voight, Barkley,Donald Trump (Funny hair and all) Liz Cheney, etc...
Living under tyranny is far worse.
I agree. I thought it would be appropriate and relevant to post the portion of the Declaration I did for this thread. Not so much here on Free Republic, but overall, there are quite a few American citizens who should read it, along with the Constitution and the Federalist Papers. The country would be a whole lot better off if they did.....and, sadly, I have absolutely no doubt that many would be reading those documents for the very first time....
The people who will squeal the loudest often carried F**K Bush signs when he was in office.
I agree 100% in spirit and principle with the content of this billboard.
I am also smart enough to know that if this sentiment came from Republicans, then it is opportunistic bullshit, just like everything else Republicans say when they want to get elected.
Sorry I feel that way, but every single Republican I have seen in the past 20 years has never once had the spine to stand for what they say they believe in.
At least the possibility of taking the b*stards out naked is being discussed. This discussion is a healthy sign. Good!
READY TO CLEAN HOUSE IN 2010? WANT TO AVERT STEP 3??
CHRISTINA JEFFREY (http://christinajeffrey.com/index2.html) is running for Congress from the SOUTH CAROLINA 4th against 5TERM INCUMBENT (that’s 10 YEARS!) BOB INGLIS. (http://www.gradegov.com/representative.php?id=190&name=representative_bob_inglis)
AS you can see, Bob is a D MINUS per GRADEGOV.COM.
I can assure you that Christina will be an A+ out of the gate — and will stay that way!
All these folks vote on issues affecting us all so even if you live elsewhere, send CHRISTINA a few bucks and spread the word among your family and friends.
And dont fail to find and VET good candidates in YOUR area. If we had 220 or so solid conservative up in Malfunction Junction, we could grind fedzilla to a standstill. Federal gridlock is for want of a better word GOOD!
LET’S CLEAN HOUSE IN 2010!
And while we’re on the subject, check out Get Out of Our House. (http://goooh.com/home.aspx) They’re pulling together folks to get us back to the Constitution. GOOOH is even seeking solid candidates to oppose leftist and RINO incumbents. Feel like running?? If you’re in the Atlanta area, there’s a GOOOH MEETUP on December 5th!
The only clear option at this juncture is for the 50 states to secede from Washington DC...re=establish the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and start from square one. Jerrymandering will leave the Congressional Black Caucus in Kongress, regardless of 2010 successes, and Obama will funnel all the graft he needs thru them getting himself reelected in 2012. /end short history USA ‘09-’12
Well unless you are a popular Black Actor, or maybe the current Governor of California.
This country was formed by a revolution against monarchists. The globalists (who are nothing more than international communists) think current Americans will just lie down and take it as their government goes AWOL and destroys the Republic. This billboard is logical and lays out the steps for peaceful revolution with the ultimate fallback provided to us (both by the founding fathers). The states can also take back their rights which could lead to a shattered union (heartland vs coasts and great lakes area).
No one wants to see this play out but who sees our government doing anything but accelerating us into a global government even though it is destroying our country economically and sacrificing the livelhood of our citizens.
“1. Starve the beast, keep your money;”
I may be naive, but how exactly does one go about that?
The globalists have been creating an interdependent economic system that is the underpinnings of a global government. No global government can come into existence without paying for it. That is why they are so eager to push climate crap down our throat so they can institute a global tax. They now have the international economy on life support so they can justify switching out all currencies with a common currency. At this point they are in a vulnerable position, we can collapse their entire system simply by refusing to buy crap from China. Yes, it would be painful but without their international economic power they would have to retrench as far as changing America into Obama’s vision. This would buy us time to stop them and all we have to do is quit living above our means and quit buying stuff.
Economic warfare will work, but the masses show no ability to quit living beyond their means. We have been taught to obsessively consume as a society (recommend reading Huxley’s Brave New World).
Obama goes further than Clinton. Clinton tried to get his health care plan through, lost, was beaten at the polls, and backed off.
Obama's more of an ideologue than Clinton was. Clinton's ties were with the more moderate Committee for a Democratic Majority, and Obama's are with the left of the party. So it's no surprise that there's more outcry about Obama's policies.
But it would be wrong to say that there's more personal animosity to Obama than there was to Clinton. That plays into the hands of people who dismiss the whole thing as racial. There was a lot of personal dislike for Clinton. He had a very sleazy way about him. The stories about his character were believable and largely true and caused much distaste for the man.
But it also depends on where you come from. Signs like the one in MO reflect something that's a lot more regional than anti-Clinton sentiment was. Politics have become a lot more divided along regional lines. There's also less of a sense in much of the country that there are two alternatives, one all good and the other all bad.
Obama is worse than Clinton was. For one thing he's less competent. For another his policies are more ambitious. But it was easier to believe in 1992 that Clinton was going to spoil everything. By 2008, it was clear that things had gotten pretty bad to begin with. Not that Obama isn't making them worse, but things don't look as clear-cut as they seemed then.
