The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

May it never come to pass

Dear B.,

I hope this letter finds you in good spirits. I’ve heard it through command that the loyalists harassing I-40 have been dealt with, so you should be getting all the rice, flour, etc you could want within days, now that the port in Wilmington has been repaired.

Because of security I can’t tell you precisely where we are, but I can say that we can see the Washington Monument through the smoke from time to time. I’m not even sure how to describe the fighting. Spider says it reminds him of Hue. The younger Marine veterans speak of Fallujah. All I know is that loyalists have contested every inch since we dismounted in Lorton.

Most of the harshest fighting now is pile to pile. It reminds me of what I saw on the History Channel (remember TV?) about Stalingrad.

Tell the girls that I love them and that I think about them every day. I k

    Looking at the patterns of history, I find no other alternative. We are not like the Patriots in 1775. We are like the French in 1790. We have a tyrannical government that is completely insulated from the people and there needs. This has been entrenched for about 100 years. It is not a matter of obtaining our freedom by the election process. Elections at this point only replace the name of the person in charge, not the concept of limited government and freedom. In order to obtain our freedom we will have to recreate the French revolution, not the American.

    Personally, I just wish it would get started so we could get it over with and get back to a Constitutional government.

    • I am not sorry to disagree. While i know it has to come to that if they pass a law anything like they are proposing, as one who has seen it up close and personal, i pray now as i prayed then that i won’t have to do it again. Be that as it may, the horror will play out and now i add my family and yours to that prayer.

  3. Remember, we are not trying to overthrow the government, as the French revolution did. We are trying to restore Constitutional government. Just as the American colonists were demanding the same rights they’d have if they were living in England.

      I agree. But, we must do this. We must remove these criminal traitors from over government. All of them. And by whatever means necessary. IT MUST BE DONE.

    I see a possible alternative: Breaking away. We can allow the U.S. Gov’t institutions to continue running there operations. However, the we would prevent the U.S. Gov’t from enforcing it’s laws within our borders.

    This is not the same as the Confederacy’s break away in 1861. The U.S. Gov’t could cuntinue utilizing their bases and other operations. They just couldn’t punish you for not paying income taxes.

    Point of order, Sir.

    The “Second American Revolutionary War” started in 1861.

    The fictional one (so far) would be the Third in the series.

    Cheers.

    “Battle of Arlington Ridge.” A half-mile away from my house in Alexandria. Thanks for being too accurate, kind sir. Time to move outside the Beltway, I guess…

    If this monstrous event ever happens, I can see a slew of 4GW activity happening in the D.C. region. When the ’02 Islamic sniper team operated in this area, it caused an unbelievable amount of havoc over a three week period. And they didn’t even know what they were doing.

    I have been hearing an awful lot of talk about “it” –starting the 3rd revolution; however, I am very concerned about whether we are up for it. We are no longer tight-knit communities. We are a transit community. We no longer know let alone love our neighbors. In large part, this allowed our forefathers to quickly become organized, empowered and engaged. Whole counties and subsequently states where able to come together and quickly engage the King’s men.

    I ask you, are we ready? Are millions of American’s prepared to take up arms and come against our military and their weaponry? If you cannot answer this question in the affirmative, then I would suggest a coordinated effort begin. Our preparedness would cause less deaths (of our friends and family) in the long view. How does one discuss this topic incognito?

    The same has been said during every American crises and every time, Americans come together. I suspect that in the event this happens, there are enough folks who would be together to provide ammo, logistics, and support to seriously make life difficult for the Tyrant.
