The issue always comes down to what we are going to do and when. The what is always hard to determine. It seems as if one were just to step out and make a gesture that any number of supporters would come along to stand with them. But, everyone wants to be recognized as not being nuts, but still concerned about the direction of this country. It is a tightrope on which we are expected to navigate the dangerous waters of rebellion without seeming hostile.
But, when one looks out at the other organizations alive today and willing to rob us of our liberties, they have none of these sensibilities. Was it not Trumpka who openly offered the membership of the AFL-CIO to be "Obama's Army" against the Tea Party? That statement was made, it went out over the broadcast news. Was there any recrimination? Not that I heard of Obama didn't even bother to denounce what we already know, that the unions are out of control and at the bidding of their leaders against other peaceful citizens. What response was there from the Tea Party? A declaration of hostilities? Hardly. The threat it went aloft and hung there as a possible scenario were the Tea Party to become too effective.
This is the society that we need to fear? This is the sort of place where we have to mind our P's and Q's? I challenge the reader to rethink their reservations about making such statements. I challenge the reader to understand that during the Revolutionary War it was not the concern of the average citizen that there were those engaged in military actions against the standing government of Britain. They were concerned how the hostilities might disrupt their avenues of commerce and whether or not they would receive aid in case of Indian attack on the frontier. It was not the earth-shattering events we think of when we think of that period.
Lately there has been a declaration of war, which I think is a bit overstated, I prefer a demand for a redress of grievances, because without the actual possibility of conflict, it is not a war, it is merely a petition. Yet, the Revolutionary War was begun by just such petitions being brought to the King, who ignored them time and time again. They were merely annoyances to his rule, which was considerable at the time. The "colonies" were but a holding of the Crown designed to provide revenue with which to fight the many wars and occupations engaged in by the British Empire of the time.
I think the idea of making some declarations, some petitions and delivering them to Congress is a positive step on the path to setting up a resistance. Signatories to such might be harassed, but it is best to put the opposition before the public prior to any action that might be taken. It is an important step to be organized as in opposition to the constant barrage of unconstitutional laws being passed and approved of by the Supreme Court. I would also deliver a copy to whatever petitions might arise to the Supreme Court, detailing their complicity in the actions of the government which, as a people, we find excessive and burdensome. It does not hurt to identify all that have taken part in the treason that has lately been so rampant in our government.
This is a brave new step that I heartily endorse.
