Tired of the Defeatist Attitudes Here
3/21/10 | self

Posted on 03/21/2010 8:11:05 PM PDT by NoobRep

Seriously, I fully understand the significance of the assault on our liberties and freedoms we've just witnessed.

But for the love of God, take your two seconds and get it out of your system and get ready to take back the country. It's our own damn fault we let this happen so now what are we going to do? Sit and cry like these bozos own us? They only own you if you let them.

I'll say this-I don't know what all the answers are but I know it will take an incredible effort and some very brave and smart people to rebuild this thing. You have a choice-lay on the ground and get walked on by these cretins or get up off your butt and start fighting back. It starts now. I'm 34 years old and I'm not taking this laying down-I've got too much pride in my country and self to let a two-bit crackhead like Obama run my life. I also know that the old saying "United we stand, divided we fall," is going to be critical moving forward. I watched some people up in Washington that should inspire all of us-Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Mark Levin, Michelle Bachmann. What great great people and true leaders. We have some great leaders to build around that's for sure. I couldn't be prouder of the true Patriots that have fought and will continue to fight for us.

Molon Labe.

Absolutely, I can’t understand all the posts saying it’s over for American, or the bill can never be repealed, etc. There’s already a good number of states taking steps to exclude themselves from this and the Senate has vowed to tie it up forever. These are unusual steps for an unusual law, I think it can and will be repealed if not nullified by the courts.

Thank you and I stand with you right now in what you have to say and ask everyone to pledge to get out and work to defeat the Democrats on November 2, 2010. Let’s Take Back the House and work to cut the numbers of DemocRATs in the Senate if not take it back.

Our Republican Representatives in the House have been fighting hard for all of us against huge odds stacked against them, but they never quit and neither should we. We need to support the House Republicans in the races and the Republican candidates against the Democrats and the same with the Senate.

It doesn’t look like Dr. Coburn is going to have much of a race which frees up a lot of us to help other states nearby.

Time to quit moaning, roll up the sleeves, and get to work defeating DemocRATs!

Great post!

Let everyone grieve and fume for a night or two, get it out of their system, then we work on subverting the socialists. I gotta believe it cannot be that hard. They are sleaze, slime, the scum of the earth, Stupak being captain of the team, if we put our heads together we can take our country back.

Bluto: Hey! What's this lying around shit?
Stork: Well, what the hell we s'posed to do, you moron?
D-Day: War's over, man. Pelosi dropped the big one.
Bluto: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.
Bluto: And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...[pauses to remember the rest of the phrase]... the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go! [runs out, alone; then returns]
Bluto: What happened to the Delta I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you're gonna let it be the worst! "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble." Well, just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this! Obama, he's a dead man! Stupak, dead! Pelosi—
Otter: Dead! Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons, but that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.
Bluto: And we're just the guys to do it.
D-Day: Let's do it.
Bluto: LET'S DO IT!!

Words spoken, not so long ago...

I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once more able to defend our Island home, to ride out the storm of war, and to outlive the menace of tyranny, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.

Even though large parts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and [b]if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle,[/b] until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the Old .

Thanks for your post. The sheer magnitude of government intrusion and that it can be deemed to pass constitutional muster shows how degraded and separated we are from the protections our founding fathers fought for. There needs to be a spark to set the fire that is I feel inevitable if we are ever to set the government back to its rightful strength - submissive to the people and not the other way around! I feel that if some of the current patriots call for outright civil disobedience, that would be a meaningful start. I'll be interested in what Rush has to say tomorrow. He has a lot of weight on his shoulders and know that patriots will be seeking his and other patriots leadership as to what to do next.

The worst thing about this is knowing that some people are stupid enough to think this is about the government caring for them. This is a power and money grab of unprecedented scale, nothing more.

I agree with you 100%. So the fight is jointed - this means we, the citizens who understand and appreciate the heritage of Our Constitution are now called upon to defend it with unending effort, and prayer! We must trust in the Lord, who through His great mercy, entrusted to us, to give us the strength to defend it and the Christian principles upon which it is founded!

Amen, sir. We won this debate, the public remains strongly against this. The passing of this bill occurred in November 2008 with the election of a marxist president and massive majorities in both houses. Elections have consequences. The people are on our side, and those numbers haven’t budged in 8 months despite a massive pr campaign. Our side will continue to win the debate and ride it back to majorities. Eliminating this massive bill will be a tough battle, and the window to do so is only a few years. We must fight on all fronts to beat it in court, with the help of our states and in the next elections in 2010 and 2012.

You guys want to nominate me and fund me to speak and lead this revolution, I’ll willing to sacrifice. I’ve got a small family (not married but have nephews) that I think I can protect but I won’t disappoint you. I’m not afraid of these guys in any form or fashion. I’m just crazy enough to actually say the things that most of you only think you could say. With God as my witness, if I ever have the opportunity to stand in front of Obama, I’ll destroy that whiny crackhead turd. I just need the opportunity. I’m college educated, hold traditional values and am fearless.

I’ve gotten up and looked at myself in the mirror a lot the last two years thinking that I can be the one to turn this cake upside down but right now I am just an average worker who hasn’t felt I was needed. I’ll go after liberals with every name in the book and expose them for the frauds and traitors they are. Without hesitation.

It’s going to take someone with a lot of guts. I don’t fear the KOS kids, George Soros or some punk Black Panthers.

Here is a clue about flying the flag upside down...



Why is the US Flag diplayed Upside Down?



The upside down U.S. flag is an official signal of distress. It is not meant to be, and is not officially recognized as any type of disrespect when so displayed for the right reasons. To the contrary, here is the relevant part of the US Code of Laws regarding how to fly the flag when in distress:
THE FLAG CODE
Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10
As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress
Approved July 7, 1976

§ 176. Respect for flag: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
Most individuals who have served in the military service of our nation will (or should) recognize this signal.

As a result of the many traitors and enemies we as a free people have, both foreign and domestic, as a result of the many unconstitutional acts, legislation and atrocities passed and/or committed against US citizens and their life, liberty and property, and as a result of policies that have allowed (and continue to allow) enemies of this nation to enter in large numbers through a porous border policy, I believe the life, liberty and property of US Citizens are in dire danger and distress.

I watched some people up in Washington that should inspire all of us-Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Mark Levin, Michelle Bachmann. What great great people and true leaders. We have some great leaders to build around that's for sure.

An excellent point. At least a dozen promising leaders have come into the spotlight, all with good conservative credentials. We have something to build on and that's a big plus for us.

These representatives will eventually have to return to the neighborhoods they live in.
Give them hell at their children's soccer practice.
Give them hell at the local restaurants.
Make it so they cannot show their faces in the districts they represent.
Next time, when they cast an unpopular vote- they will think about the ramifications that will occur in their daily lives in the hometowns they claim to represent.

One has to now wonder why the Republican leadership was unable to stop this.

I want to see GOP leadership heads on a pike. Fighting this will require more talent than they’ve been able to muster. They have been demonstrably ineffective and need to go so we can regain political power in the fall.

Failure must have consequences for political GOP hacks.

They need to go, so we can go after the folks that are committed to this fraud.

Sometimes you have to execute the apathetic and ineffective before you go after the enemy.

I lived for 4 years in the Czech Republic and Russia (post-Communist) and saw what horror that system wreaked on those people. The Russians alone are the most resilient people I’ve ever known, as a result, but it took me a long time to get those images of government imposed oppression out of my head. I guess I’m going to have to dredge that up again and rethink how I can emulate them, and how they “beat the Soviet system” and lived to tell about it.

We have to push the states to pass their laws plus a comprehensive birth certificate check before being put on a ballot.

The states also have to try to find a way so the citizenry does not get taxed to pay for it.

Is Hatch correct that the Senate can tie it up forever?
