Evidently, this turd has never read the Constitution of The United States.

Perhaps this individual needs to learn first hand what Thomas Jefferson was talking about when he said: “God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

We are coming to the point where we need to reassert our primacy over the government.

Oh, we are far past 'culling the herd' in this country. At our core, human beings are still animals, and when cornered, will still fight and kill to put down the opressing force.

The corner is getting tighter everyday.

I am still looking for the sermon Jefferson borrowed that
Tree of Liberty ...and blood of Patriots and Tyrants from.
I read it once some years ago -and am looking for it again.
