Revolution, Civil War and The American DNA.

UPDATE - PASTORIUS CUTTING IN AT THE TOP OF MR'S POST: 

Midnight Rider has, here, written a kind of new Declaration of Independence. This is a brilliant post. 

I am going to add the old Declaration of Independence to the end of this post. Compare and contrast. We may be faced with a new King George. We will decide as time goes by.

It's time to come to terms with some truths about who we are, where we come from – our American DNA – and where it may lead us.

In comments the other day Rumcrook said it right. We are, by and large, an easygoing, live and let live people. We will put up with an awful lot of nonsense and chickenshit from nitwits, pissants and pantywaists. Even our American Revolution took a lot of prodding, excesses and abuse before it finally exploded.

But if you try to tell us how to live, we will likely flip you the bird. If you try to force us to live that way, that bird may be holding a rifle.

Our forefathers came here looking for freedom – religious, political, social, and

Cultural.

Along the way we have had to fight and kill, among others, British, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, Russian (oh yes we have), Afghani, Iraqi and

our own fellow Americans

to defend and preserve this country, those freedoms, our own rowdy, rough and tumble way of living.

For 517 years we fought spilled blood and died for it. It is no longer just an ideal to us, it is in our blood. In our children’s’ blood as we pass the stories and histories down to them. From Paul Revere’s Ride to the slaughterhouses of Gettysburg and Antietam to Ypres, and Iwo Jima.

We will not easily surrender that freedom to any enemy, foreign or domestic.

Barack Hussein Obama is not interested in that history, those freedoms, The American DNA.

He would strip us of our freedom of assembly and expression. He tries to silence our voice at town halls and other meetings where, if we cannot be shouted down, he will use hired muscle to intimidate.

He allowed such thuggery to stand at polling stations on election day, having charges against such as the Black Panthers thrown out and allowing their intimidation to stand and set precedence.

He would appoint Czars to overseer every tenuous detail of our lives, from the car we drive to the food we eat and how we dispose of our trash, yet none to oversee the overseers.

He believes it is better for the government to choose our health care for us, that they know better what kind of treatment we need, or should forgo, because it is too expensive and thus sacrifice the lives of our loved ones on the altar of society’s tax burden.

He believes the government should own large businesses, buyout by bailout, and should dictate what an individual can earn for his chosen profession.

Dissent will not be tolerated. Snitch on your friends and neighbors, we even have an email account you can send your information to. And they want to know every detail of what you are thinking and doing so, if you take stimulus money, they may require access to your computers, your networks.

He apologizes to our enemies and snubs our friends.

He is destroying the defense capability of this nation, would charge the warriors who protected us with crimes against those who would kill us.

Most hideous and reprehensible of all, he would take a national day of mourning and turn it into a save the planet day.

Every step of the way these last six months we have watched as Barack Hussein Obama has tried to remake this nation, from one of pride, self-reliance and individualism to one of Social Dependency and Government Assisted Living.

And he wants to rule by paranoia.

Show up at a town hall against Obamacare and get an elbow to the face.

Try to vote against the Left and face a nightstick to the back.

Speak out against the government in an email and have it turned in to the White House by your “friend”.

Write about them on twitter or face book and have it captured by the government.

Need a little Federal help? Turn over your books to us so we can keep an eye on you.

Barack Hussein Obama is no friend to freedom and Americans are starting to (finally) wake up to that. His approval level has plunged to the low 40s’ More and more are voicing their disgust with his policies and showing their defiance of Big Government, showing up at town halls armed and unafraid.

They will not let him turn America into a Socialist backwater of history. We are still The City on the Hill.

But what will it take to preserve that? As he turns more of our own against us to dampen dissent and debate, will he eventually move to a Civilian Militia to maintain government order, will he try to force the military to enforce his policies?

And at what point will America say enough is enough? When will that spirit of independence awaken fully, and furiously?

Will we be forced to fight back, to physically DEFEND ourselves from intimidation and thuggery? Will we be forced to fight against having our children mandatorily volunteer for civilian service? Forced to point a gun back at the man pointing his at us to take little Sally off to 8 weeks of summer camp indoctrination and volunteerism?

Try forcing Bubba to give up his F-250 for a SmartCar.

Non-violent resistance is all well and good and admirable and preferable. But, historically, it’s not our way, to submit instead of stand our ground, even if it means knocking the other fellow on his ass.. And as the government continues to spiral out of control and lose all touch with ground truths, I see it as less and less likely to be the outcome.

We need to come to terms with the truth that The Revolution has already begun. Barack Hussein Obama started it when he decided The United States of America was no longer good enough and needed to be sacrificed and remade in his own image.

The Revolution has already begun and - as brother turns against brother, friend against friend, along ideological lines - I’m afraid, will end in the civil war Jon Voight warned about.

It’s in our blood. And the blood of our children.

UPDATE: The original Declaration of Independence:

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

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. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. 
That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing taxes on us without our consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:

For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Re the BNP: I wanna hear the conversion story.

To change from being a racist to a culturist is a PARADIGM SHIFT.

People only undergo psychic paradigm shifts when some sort of cataclysmic event has happened in their lives.

And, usually, once they have undergone such a paradigm shift, you can't get them to shut up about it. They want to tell everyone what happened to them.

So, let's hear Nick Griffin explain to us why he is no longer a white nationalist.

This oughta be fun.

I said this over at Atlas and I'll say it again: To anyone at the White House monitoring this site, a suggestion: Print this out. Roll it up into a nice tight tube. Sit on it. Rotate.

thanks for the plug guy's.

heres another question for everyone.

if your going to try and have a successfully running socialist system what cant you have?

1. to many old people who need to be taken care of by the efforts and labor of a smaller amount of younger working people.

2. old people. becuase they are still rigidly cought up in the whole "old idea" (freedom self reliance, the constitution) of how the country should be run......

later we can get rid of the rest of the"original population" and replace it with one more beholden to us and our policies through immigration reform....///

Anyone tries to screw around with me or mine, they will discover how difficult it really is to deal with a ticked off 67 year old Hungarian woman! And her 25 pound cat with an equally bad attitude!
