Tomorrow is the 24th and if the lack of participation is anywhere near the same as on the 21st, which I highly expect it will be, then the idea of a siege, or holding our representative's feet to the fire and making them battle through the trials of ripping Obamacare out of the lawbooks will largely have been for nothing. I know, I know, we accomplished something, yes, I agree. No effort is without result, either good or ill.
The 24th will not be the end of anything, or indeed the start, but a necessary stop along the winding path of justice and liberty. On the long, rising grades of a steam engine in the mountains, a good dose of water is needed. While maintaining the momentum would seem to be the wisest choice, going up the hill without sufficient water for steam is insane. There can be no good outcome of that. So, like the locomotive, I have stopped here in DC as a moment of necessary taking on water for the grade ahead.
My efforts to reach out to the concerned citizens of the nation has been accomplished. Perhaps I needed to take that step in order to take those further along. From here on out I will be seeking other means and methods of doing what I have tried to do this way. If I cannot reach those on the periphery of necessary action, perhaps I can find the few willing to put it on the line for what they know is right and solidify my role in their company.
I will not lay down, I will not relent, but I will not beat a dead horse. If indeed this is the outcome of my efforts, then so be it. If it is the outcome of so many others who have done the same as I have, or better, then we had better buckle up, because the inevitable showdown is just that much closer to taking place.
The one thing I keep coming back to is this: If indeed there is no use in what I have been trying to do, then why aren't we all doing something else? I started Guardians of Liberty based on the fact that there seemed to be no active resistance to TPTB, nothing I could rally to, so I assumed that it was not yet time to act, but from where I sit, if things are such that talking will no longer do any good, where is the action that should be taking place in its stead? Keep in mind, I am not calling for action, I am curious as to where it is. What form has it taken?
Tomorrow evening, when I have settled in my mind that I have done everything I could do to peacefully seek the restoration of justice and liberty, I will embark on a different method of achieving the same. I will ask no one to join me, nor will I seek the company of others. I have tried that method to no avail. I know what needs to be done and I don't need help in achieving it. Each man is 1, times that by an act that is 1x1, times that by an outcome and you get the equation: 1x1x1. That is the way to freedom. That will be my rally cry.
