There is a lot of talk about civil disobedience regarding this healthcare bill. Folks have said they will refuse to purchase into it, thus breaking the law.
A thought I had is, what about the 2010 census. What if we refuse to participate or under/over report our household numbers. If we refuse to obey the census law or just delay would that send a message?
Freedom (and revolution) begin with saying “no”.
ROTFL. Hang on a sec, let me think...
Welcome to Free Republic.
Instead of paying for postage when mailing letters, just print out a tiny square with Obama’s face on it, and stick it in the upper-right corner of your envelope. See if the letter comes back to you or not.
See you in debtor's prison.
Acceptable to whom?
I wonder if we'll get cable in prison?
I am beginning to suspect “boiled hemp” will be about the only message this crew of cngresscriminals will understand.
Disobedience against tyranny is a privilege.
Our ancestors did this a number of times in a number of ways, including the American Revolution, the Civil War, the various labor movements of the late 19th century, the Civil Rights movement, and other times in which rights have been stepped on.
Any form of disobedience is acceptable, and when they start shooting, even war is acceptable. You don’t preserve liberty against people like the modern American left by acting nice.
I don’t know. You suppose we’ll have complimentary high speed internet connection?
This is funny check this out
Nader Blasts Obamacare
Free cable, internet and sex. (only the last one is bad news).
We need to print up some MLK shirts with the slogan:
“One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”
Too bad his image is copyrighted...wait...hold on...maybe that’s one of those unjust laws he was talking about!
Welcome to Free Republic. Did you join today just to sound us out on our intentions? Makes me kind of wonder...
That just brought a question to mind: legal historians: has there ever been a political assault/killing via some weapon where the defense was that it was an act of civil disobedience?
Something is seriously wrong when the government plans to treat citizens worse than they treat terrorists.
When the census worker comes to your place give them the Christopher Walken SNL answer:
Overestimate if you live in a safe Republican district. Underestimate if you live in a Dem. district. ROFL!
What we should do is show up at these loser’s homes right after Christmas in droves. Reps too.
