I am convinced that our government is a house of cards. It is like every other bully I have encountered in my life, if allowed to bully it will, if it is met by a competent foe, it folds.
The moment we live in is the time when the myth is still intact, when Goliath seems invincible. Right now Obamacare is being challenged on the state level simply by not erecting the exchanges Obamacare requires it to erect. For a better understanding of what this means to you and the law, go here and discover that the federal government, when challenged will fold, if challenged vigorously.
The government cannot withstand a barrage of challenges unless it goes through the court, which it controls. Direct, human intervention against its abuses cannot be countered, it has no values upon which to stand.
We have allowed ourselves to accept the rulings of judges in our law-abiding nature. No matter how outlandish the ruling, we withdraw our complaints and damn ourselves for our illiteracy and foolishness. I have long maintained that a stalwart challenge to the legal system reduces them eventually to outright force, a vision of which the typical American rebels against.
The government's cover is the illusion of respectability and order. Shatter that and the whole house of cards comes tumbling down. Reveal the beast for what it is and it will rile the animosity of the citizen.
It has been suggested by a commenter to the last post that we form up and march toward the Northeast, with arms, just exercising our rights. We should have no goal to accomplish. It would be a protest against the rights already sacrificed, an illumination of grievances we have against an oppressive government. I suggest that we do so.
We should be armed not only with legal weapons, but with legal counsel. That we should come from different directions, to meet at some place a week's march away to hold our congress. That by showing ourselves to be law-abiding, but resolute, we put the government in the position of having to deny what is legal, to break us up as a testament to their might.
We should offer no explanation for where we are going or what we intend, that is a violation of our rights unless charged with a crime. Let them wonder. Let the media speculate. Let the fear sink deep within the hearts of those who are guilty; fear that we are coming for them.
We should be precise in the laws and have representation that can argue the law while we march, but we should not allow ourselves to be detained without warrant and a description of the sworn testimony as to what crimes they believe we have, or will commit. Since our purpose is a peaceful assembly at a place of our choosing, there can be no violation of law by intent.
There are logistics to work out and substitutions to be made for those who cannot be long from work. If we were to gain the trust and cooperation of certain militia units, that would be all the better. The excuses echo in my head as I write these words, but I tell you nothing cannot be accommodated. We would look to liberty groups and Second Amendment advocates in specific states to ensure our compliance with local laws.
Once again, I offer a peaceful approach to our stagnation. Look to your local chapters, your tribe and cohorts. Plan at the local level and bring it together at the congress. It could be framed as escorting your local delegate to the congress, if you wish.
Of course, there is a risk, but only from a tyrannical and oppressive government bent on the absolute destruction of a free society.
