“In fact, I point out that all the conspiracies in history – especially during the last 5000 years – are actually different aspects of the same conspiracy. Some people fixed on one aspect of the conspiracy, and say this is the problem, others say another thing, but the thing is all the conspirators work together. All the conspirators are part of the same operation. And this is what people find very reluctant.” – Eustace Mullins (2000)
“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the fields of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” – Woodrow Wilson, former President of the United States, in 1914.
“Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.” – Plato
What am I speaking about? The next American Revolution.
How much longer will folks take what our own government is doing to us? For more than 30 years I have been expressing, “If a foreign country was doing to us what our government is doing to us we would be at war.”
I am not going to re-cap all the stuff that the Federal Government has done to us, is doing to us and will be doing to us in the long run but when will the American people reach the breaking point and take action? Our government is similar to a runaway train that is going to wreck. It is just a matter of when, not if unless something is done.
Ronald Reagan told us that freedom CAN be lost when he stated, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
I worry we are the generation that is going to let Reagan down and let freedom extinguish in our time. Every day we lose more and more freedoms. It is a gradual rot and this is on purpose with the hope that “We the People” won’t notice it or won’t care until it is too late to change anything.
We have a amazing gift in this country that was given us by the Founders. They ran the risk of their fortunes and their very lives to give us what we have and currently it appears no one cares if we throw it all away. Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and the some others would be so let down by us.
Indeed, there is still hope to restore our country to what it once was but time is running out quickly. Take into consideration the risk the founders took? They were under the rule of the King of England and the strongest military in the world but the attraction of freedom and individual liberty drove them to do something the world had never witnessed before.
The principle that Americans have the right to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” and that these rights were given not by a King or government that could take them away, but by God and are inalienable was unique in human history. Never had such a document as the Declaration Of Independance been produced and never has once since.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The Declaration was an act of treason and the signers endangered their very lives by putting their name on it. If they were captured by the British they would have been executed. When the Declaration was signed there was no cheering stories say, it was a solemn moment as they all comprehended the gravity of what they had just done.
Ben Franklin is noted as stating, “Indeed we must all hang together, otherwise we shall most assuredly hang separately.”
They chanced it all for an idea, for a concept, for true freedom and liberty. Ask yourself this, what are you prepared to risk to preserve what they gave us? A friend of mine once told me that nothing will change. The government will keep taking away our freedoms, keep spending and printing money until one day it all collapses. Nothing or no one can stop it.
I questioned, “Why?” “Why can’t we stop this? Why can’t we take back our country and restore our government to what it should be? Why can’t we secure individual liberty and freedom just as the Founders did?” His answer was that in today’s world none of us are prepared to risk losing what we have to get it done. We all have great, simple lives. We have awesome homes, cars, computers, jobs, family vacations, swimming pools, RV’s, smart phones, a day at the beach, etc. and we want to enjoy every bit of this great lifestyle we have been blessed with. We don’t want to risk losing that.
So we turn our backs on what is taking place. We look the other way as liberals, progressives, socialists and Marxists ‘fundamentally change’ the very heart of our country. Hell, we are too busy making America run at any rate. So we ‘let’ it all transpire right under our noses.
Where is the future Thomas Jefferson, The future Ben Franklin, or the future John Adams? Is there another ‘revolutionary’ out there currently that is willing to risk it all for our Country like they did? Does anyone truly believe ANY of the individuals running for President these days will make a difference? Not very likely. As Gingrich says, “they will just manage the decay.”
If there is not someone out there that is willing to risk everything to take a stand and start a revolution like they did in 1776 nothing changes. And even if someone stands up will people like us rally around this individual and stand with them or will we observe from a safe distance (just in case) and let them crash?
The wonderful thing about our society is we CAN peacefully change our government. It might not be easy and it might not be pretty but we can do it IF we all rally together. Certainly, the Founders signed the Declaration. It was a very brave and bold thing to do BUT if the PEOPLE did not rally around the cause, if the PEOPLE were not willing to risk what they had the movement would have failed. If the PEOPLE were not prepared to pledge “Our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor” the British would have won and there would be no United States of America.
And it was challenging to radically change their world as it won’t be easy to change ours. It took years and years of sacrifice. Who amongst us believes in “true” liberty and freedom enough to make that sacrifice? We all speak about it. But who is supremely committed to the cause? Make no doubt the liberals are completely committed on their side. They even told us flat out in 2008 that they wanted to fundamentally change America and let me tell you they are doing it!
Perhaps there are millions of us out there that would risk everything to making real change materialize. And save America. Perhaps we are just sitting and patiently waiting for someone to lead us. Maybe we are not fed up enough yet or we have not been pushed all the way to the wall. It could be because our own standard of living is still good and we are afraid to risk that.
So what can really be done? What is reality? Are we going to ‘settle’ for what we think is realistic change or will we demand radical change to restore America to what it once was? Ron Paul believes real change won’t transpire. I heard him comment on the radio a few months ago that he is afraid that politicians will never have the will to do what is right and that real chance will only come after a total collapse of our economic system. Are we going to hold out until that occurs?
Trust me, there will be no change no matter who we elect. Even the most hardcore Tea Party believers get elected and then find they don’t have the capability to change Washington. Either they can’t or they change their views because they don’t want to threaten what they currently have, meaning risk losing their next election and their cushy and powerful job in Washington. We will have to “force” change. Make for sure about it otherwise it is not going to take place and what Ron Paul envisions will become reality one day.
Here are a few scenarios that I could visualize ‘forcing’ radical change in Washington. Not declaring either of these is the right way or they would work but they are achievable ways.
1. Ten million of us march on Washington DC and peacefully occupy and take over Congress. We request a total resignation of everyone in Congress. We basically shutdown the federal government as we know it by the sheer mass of ten million of us.
2. Ten million of us all quit paying taxes at the same time. We opt out of the system and bring the government to its financial knees while simultaneously demanding that all current politicians step down.
3. Only folks who take a pledge to never permit the government to spend more than it takes in (with the exception in times of declared war) will be permitted to fill the now empty seats in Congress. They must also pledge to run our government based on what the Constitution states.
4. The Federal Reserve will be fully audited and made to run in the open.
1. A range of states opt out of the system. A good case in point would be former Governor Perry of Texas informing the Federal Government that Texas will no longer be accepting any funds from the Federal Government and will no longer be sending any funds to the Federal Government. The citizens of Texas will no longer pay income taxes to the Federal Government and Texas will operate as an independent Republic.
2. Other states such as Alaska, Montana, Idaho, North Dakota and more do the same. These new “Republics” form a consortium of Free States and trade with each other as well as encourage free enterprise to prosper by having no corporate income taxes.
3. Citizens of the United States are free to relocate to any of these new Free states and opt out of Washington DC’s control over their lives.
Please offer your suggestions as to how we can really change direction in Washington. We require concepts. We need to take control of our future or it will control us.
The question lots of people have would be if the Federal Government will permit something like this to occur or would they attempt and utilize our military to stop it. I say that even if Congress or the President attempted to make the military set up against American citizens they would not do it. They would refuse and with any luck , even support the peaceful movement to restore America. The desire will be that the police and the military will ‘allow’ this to take place without making use of force. If the movement is large enough how can they stop us? Have you heard of the Oathkeepers?
Do not kid yourself and believe meaningful change will take place without turmoil and strife. It will not come about without sacrifice at a level no one in our generation has ever witnessed. Are we willing to make that sacrifice? I am but how many others are?
How many are willing to pledge “our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor” to restore America?
