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

What you’ll see in the rebellion

Written By: Bob - Dec• 28•12

Let me explain, gun grabbers, how your confiscatory fantasy plays out. Let us imagine for a moment that a sweeping gun control bill similar to the one currently suggested is passed by the House and Senate, and signed into law by a contemptuous President.

Perhaps 50-100 million firearms currently owned by law-abiding citizens will become contraband with the stroke of a pen. Citizens will either register their firearms, or turn them in to agents of the federal government, or risk becoming criminals themselves. Faced with this choice, millions will indeed register their arms. Perhaps as many will claim they’ve sold their arms, or had them stolen. Suppose that as many as 200-250 million weapons of other types will go unregistered.

Tens of millions of Americans will refuse to comply with an order that is clearly a violation of the explicit intent of the Second Amendment. Among the most ardent opposing these measures will be military veterans, active duty servicemen, and local law enforcement officers. Many of these individuals will refuse to carry out what they view as Constitutionally illegal orders. Perhaps 40-50 million citizens will view such a law as treason. Perhaps ten percent of those, 4-5 million, would support a rebellion in some way, and maybe 40,000-100,000 Americans will form small independently-functioning active resistance cells, or become lone-wolves.

They will be leaderless, stateless, difficult to track, and considering the number of military veterans that would likely be among their number, extremely skilled at sabotage, assassination, and ambush.

After a number of carefully-planned, highly-publicized, and successful raids by the government, one or more will invariably end “badly.” Whether innocents are gunned down, a city block is burned to ash, or especially fierce resistance leads to a disastrously failed raid doesn’t particularly matter. What matters is that when illusion of the government’s invincibility and infallibility is broken, the hunters will become the hunted.

Unnamed citizens and federal agents will be the first to die, and they will die by the dozens and maybe hundreds,  but famous politicians will soon join them in a spate of revenge killings, many of which will go unsolved.

Ironically, while the gun grab was intended to keep citizens from preserving their liberties with medium-powered weapons, it completely ignored the longer-ranged rifles perfect for shooting at ranges far beyond what a security detail can protect, and suppressed .22LR weapons proven deadly in urban sniping in Europe and Asia.

While the Secret Service will be able to protect the President in the White House, he will not dare leave his gilded cage except in carefully controlled circumstances. Even then he will be forced to move like a criminal. He will never be seen outdoors in public again. Not in this country.

The 535 members of the House and Senate in both parties that allowed such a law to pass would largely be on their own; the Secret Service is too small to protect all of them and their families, the Capitol Police too unskilled, and competent private security not particularly interested in working against their own best interests at any price. The elites will be steadily whittled down, and if they can not be reached directly, the targets will become their staffers, spouses, children, and grandchildren. Grandstanding media figures loyal to the regime would die in droves, executed as enemies of the Republic.

You can expect congressional staffs to disintegrate with just a few shootings, and expect elected officials themselves to resign well before a quarter of their number are eliminated, leaving us with a boxed-in executive, his cabinet loyalists trapped in the same win, die, or flee the country circumstance, military regime loyalists, and whatever State Governors who desire to risk their necks as well.

Here, the President will doubtlessly order the activation of National Guard units and the regular military to impose martial law, setting the largest and most powerful military in the world against its own people. Unfortunately, the tighter the President clinches his tyrannical fist, the more rebels he makes.

Military commands and federal agencies will be whittled down as servicemen and agents will desert or defect. Some may leave as individuals, others may join the Rebellion in squad and larger-sized units with all their weapons, tactics, skills, and insider intelligence. The regime will be unable to trust its own people, and because they cannot trust them, they will lose more in a vicious cycle of collapse.

Some of these defectors will be true “operators,” with the skills and background to turn ragtag militia cells into the kind of forces that decimate loyalist troops, allowing them no rest and no respite, striking them when they are away from their most potent weapons. Military vehicles are formidable, but they are thirsty beasts, in terms of fuel, ammo, time, and maintenance. Tanks and bombers are formidable only when they have gas, guns, and can be maintained. In a war without a front, logistics are incredibly easy to destroy, and mechanics and supply clerks are not particularly adept at defending themselves.

Eventually, the government will turn upon itself. The President will be captured or perhaps killed by his own protectors. A dictatorship will form in the vacuum.

If we’re lucky, the United States of America, or whatever amalgam results, will again try to rebuild. If we’re very lucky, the victors will reinstate the Constitution as the law of the land. Just as likely though, we’ll face fractious civil wars fought over issues we’ve not begun to fathom, and a much diminished state or states will result, perhaps guided by foreign interests.

It will not be pretty. There will be no “winners,” and perhaps hundreds of thousands to millions of dead.

Yet, this is the future we face if the power-mad among us are not soundly defeated at the ballot box before they affect more “change” than  we, the People, are willing to surrender to would-be tyrants.

        RE: FEMA & Body Bags

        I ran exercises for STARCs in the 80s and 90s. Helping them prepare for natural disasters and national emergencies.

        NONE of the STARCs we exercised were prepared for mass-casualties. FEMA would be the logical agency to procure, store and distribute such items to states in need.

        Then again, it IS an interesting ‘indicator’ that FEMA is doing what we told them to do 20 years ago….NOW.

    I am so proud that there is talk of resistance to this awful evil scheme and pray that the American people will stand with their lives fortunes and honor to resist it.

      It is not all well and good, but unfortunately evil exists and only when opposed will it stop or be stopped.

        Chuck,
        What do you perceive the separation to be?

        Perhaps the 6th commandment? “Thou shall not murder.” (shed innocent blood) there is little or no innocence in tyrants or their mercenaries.

        Perhaps Jesus’s command to turn the other cheek? That was in response to a slap, a common insult of the day, not a physical assault or unjust imprisonment or the rape or murder of your family. The command was to not return an insult when insulted, rather allow the insulter annother go at it, letting the fool to continue in his folley and passing along the undeserved love and forgiveness we’ve received from Christ.

        What did Jesus say about keeping and bearing arms? Luke 22:36 – He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.” He did not say buy a shield (defense) or that God will protect us against attack or tyranny in every circumstance, he commands us to use the resources we have to arm ourselves with the premiere offensive weapon of the day, of the same type as what soldiers carried at the time.

        What did Jesus say about using said arms? When Peter used his sword to relieve the guard of his ear in the garden the night before his crucifixion, Jesus rebuked Peter, not for using his sword to stop an unjust action portrayed by an authoritative official, but because Peter didn’t understand what must happen, and that no action of his could stop the events of the following 4 days. Additionally, Jesus never commanded Peter to throw his sword away (or turn it into the government for the safety of the children), rather to “put it in its place” (John 18:11) Presumably, he meant in its sheath, and for use another day.

        What does the Bible say about defending one’s home? Read Nehemiah 4. Again, swords and bows are to be carried at all times and used if attacked.

        I was once conflicted about this too, but did I did some research and spoke with Godly men about what I found, and I’m quite confident in the consistency of what God’s word says concerning this.

RE: The Question

        What do you perceive the separation to be? — Chris

        I was kind of hoping that the Good Reverend Sensing would help with that. But he’s remained silent on the question.

        RE: The Answers

        Perhaps the 6th commandment? “Thou shall not murder.” (shed innocent blood) there is little or no innocence in tyrants or their mercenaries. — Chris

        Or their enablers, e.g., the media? Or there supporters, e.g., local party officials?

        If it comes to pass, and I for one—being a student of history—realize just how vicious such a civil war would be, am greatly concerned with it. It would much more incivil than our previous engagement.

        In the First American Civil War it was state against state, for the most part. Uniforms demonstrated combatants, one from another. The exceptions being hot spots like eastern Tennessee. If there is a Second American Civil War from all of this, it will be neighbor against neighbor. It will make Bleeding Kansas look like a rough and tumble rugby match.

        Perhaps Jesus’s command to turn the other cheek? That was in response to a slap, a common insult of the day, not a physical assault or unjust imprisonment or the rape or murder of your family. — Chris

        Perhaps. On the other hand, maybe it is physical.

        Consider His statement….

        No greater love is there than this, that a man lay down his life for a friend.</b.

        What are they going to do to me? As was the popular resistant statement of soldiers in Nam….

        What are they going to do to me? Bend my dog-tags and send me ‘home’?

        But we should consider that our Christian brethren would fight to protect us, as we would fight to protect them.

        What did Jesus say about keeping and bearing arms? Luke 22:36 – He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.” He did not say buy a shield (defense) or that God will protect us against attack or tyranny in every circumstance, he commands us to use the resources we have to arm ourselves with the premiere offensive weapon of the day, of the same type as what soldiers carried at the time. — Chris

        An interesting observation: a sword not a shield.

        What did Jesus say about using said arms? When Peter used his sword to relieve the guard of his ear in the garden the night before his crucifixion, Jesus rebuked Peter, not for using his sword to stop an unjust action portrayed by an authoritative official, but because Peter didn’t understand what must happen, and that no action of his could stop the events of the following 4 days. Additionally, Jesus never commanded Peter to throw his sword away (or turn it into the government for the safety of the children), rather to “put it in its place” (John 18:11) Presumably, he meant in its sheath, and for use another day. — Chris

        A small quibble. It wasn’t a ‘guard’ who lost his ear to Peter’s stroke. It was one of the high priests servants. Nevertheless, another accurate observation of the meaning of the passage on your part.

        What does the Bible say about defending one’s home? Read Nehemiah 4. Again, swords and bows are to be carried at all times and used if attacked. — Chris

        I can appreciate that. BUT, from my military experience and history….

        The logical outcome of defensive warfare is defeat. — Napoleon

        Should it come to a Second American Civil War, the best way to win it—the ONLY WAY TO WIN—is offensive action. Doubt this? Where is the Confederacy of the First American Civil War?

        I was once conflicted about this too, but did I did some research and spoke with Godly men about what I found, and I’m quite confident in the consistency of what God’s word says concerning this. — Chris

        Your research has been of benefit to me.

    • Their local newspaper owners, editors, and political columnists

      RE: How To Prepare

      How do I learn to defend my family and myself in this type of world? — Mary

      First, get over the anxiety. The way to do this is to educate yourself. As Louis Pastuer—the father of modern microbiology—said…..

      Chance favors the prepared mind.

      How to achieve the ‘prepared mind’ state is a matter of self-education.

      I’d recommend a tour of duty as an Airborne-Ranger, but I suspect that may be a tad beyond your current capabilities. Sooooo….I recommend self-education in the following areas:

      • Survival Skills — You can get some excellent military-grade field manuals on this on the web: first aid, logistics, tactical movement, etc.

      • Firearms — You can get all kinds of useful devices. I recommend a long-gun (.223 Rem or 5.56mm) and a sidearm of no less than .40 cal.

      • Bug-Out Equipment — Look at life as if you’re living out of a suitcase you carry on your back for a week or three. Don’t forget a bed roll and ‘roof’, i.e., tentage you can carry as well. That’s the ‘worst-case’ scenario. Always be prepared for the ‘worst’…while hoping for the best.

      • Plans — Having a ‘plan’ to cope with the more likely situations always helps. As we say as staff pukes, “Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance”.

      • When Planning ALWAYS consider 35MM — Class 3 (Fuel) for mobility, heat, light and power, Class 5 (Ammo) as you can never have enough ammunition, Maintenance as you have to maintain what you’ve got working for you, e.g., critical equipment, lanterns, , Medicine as you’ll always have need for medical supplies, either common, e.g., aspirin and disinfectant/antiseptic, or the uncommon, e.g., special needs.

      • Practice — Go back-packing. Learn to read maps and move from one place to another using LPC (Leather Personnel Carriers).

      Those are just for starters. The more you delve into it, the more confident you will become and much of your anxiety will dissipate.

Whatever danger existed from rogue agents after the Soviet collapse exists tenfold in a hypothetical US collapse. The Russians aren’t our friends, but their own self-interest dictates that they don’t want this insanity to happen to us, because they are surrounded by nations that would love to get their hands on American weapons, including nuclear weapons.

      RE: History Repeats Itself

      It’s the sad truth of History that if it is effective, a technique is used time and again.

      A case in point that applies here is how Lenin/Stalin dealt with the ‘Kulaks’—land, business, home owners of the 1920s—after the Communists came to power.

      They were (1) demonized vis-a-vis ‘redistribution’, (2) attacked and (3) marched off to gulags in Siberia to be ‘re-educated’. Few survived the ‘curriculum’.

      I honestly believe that Hitler, seeing the ‘success’ of the Lenin/Stalin technique, decided to use the model for his ‘Final Solution’.

      NOW….

      ….I see that Bill ‘I Bombed the Pentagon’ Ayers—Obama’s polisci mentor—visualized using the same technique on over 25 MILLION Americans. He did this back in the 70s-80s.

    Gun Registration always leads to Gun Confiscation.

    Confiscation is always a messy, violent affair. There is no way that Confiscation in America would go easily for anyone. Confiscation always involves heavy-handed brutality and gratuitous violence by government against its own Citizens. In America, government violence and brutality against the Citizens has historically led to Armed Resistance. Just look at Lexingtion and Concord in 1775, Gonzales, Texas in 1836, and Athens, Tennessee in 1946.

    http://www.constitution.org/mil/tn/batathen.htm

    Armed Resistance usually leads to government-sponsored Genocide. That is coming. Wait for it, America.

    The federal academics in their ivory towers have calcluated that we “militant” gun owners and those of us in the Patriot community will be easily isolated, publically vilified, and marginalized so that there will only be limited and easily contained Armed Resistance to the forced registration and subsequent Confiscation of our semi-automatic tactical firearms .

    They could not be more wrong.

    These are the same mental giants of the federal behemoth who calculated that it would be a great idea to blame the Security Guard, Richard Jewel, for the bombs in the Atlanta Olympic Park in 1996. The wizards of the FBI decided to crucify Mr Jewel despite the fact that he had warned everyone about the bombs that he had discovered. The FBI never apologized for doing that.

    These are the same federal Einsteins who had calculated that it would be a good idea to have an FBI sniper shoot Vicki Weaver in the head while she was holding a baby in her arms at Ruby Ridge.

    These are the same goofballs who calculated that it somehow made good sense to burn down a church in Waco, Texas, and then shoot all of the women and children who tried to escape the flames.

    These witless clods don’t seem to be all that good at calculating their own outcomes. These guys are just a bunch of damned fools of the worst order.

    That the above federal vageniuses have now calculated that there would be minimal Armed Resistance against forced Registration of semi-auto fireams will turn out to be their worst miscalculation ever.

    The truth is, the level of Armed Resistance would be extensive and pandemic throughout our nation . It would wind up becoming the Second American Revolution and the Second American Civil War, all rolled into one. It would be armed conflict and bloodshed on a scale not imagined in all of American history.

    I will NOT register my semi-auto firearms with the federal idiots, nor with anyone else. Registration is a shell game, intended only to make eventual Confiscation easier for the Goobers of the federal Gooberment.

    I will not meekly surrender my arms, either. I will Resist, and I will not hesitate to join the organized Armed Resistance that will most definitely spring up against any such action.

    Threatening my anonymous, private possession of semi-auto tactical firearms is the “line in the sand” for me. I am hardly going be alone in that assessment, either .

    I will retain my semi-auto tactical firearms despite any and all of the laws and regulations that the squirrel-brained Goobers might spew out of the DC asylum. I am 100 percent certain that I will eventually be presented with the Hobson’s Choice of either using my tactical firearms for the purpose that our Founders orginally intended, or taking a train ride to the government ovens that you and I have already paid for with our taxes.

    That is why I purchased my tactical firearms with what was left of my hard-earned wages in the first place. I don’t give a Rat’s Hindquarters what the current Regime might legislate, or what decree might issue forth from the desk of Bat Ears Barry. I ain’t drinkin’ that frackin’ Kool-Aid, chump.

    You see, we don’t own these types of firearms because we want to shoot up school kids. We don’t own these types of
    firearms to hunt ducks with. We don’t own these types of firearms just simply to protect our homes, though that is a part of the reason.

    We own these types of firearms because we know that someday the Goobers of every Gooberment will eventually get it into their heads that it might be a good idea to start killing private Citizens, usually because they believe that doing so will somehow increase their own Power.

    We own these firearms because we have looked back in history and we have seen the outcomes from when past Gooberments have taken those same rights away from others. We own these types of fireams so that we will have the ability to organize Armed Resistance when our own out-of-control Gooberment inevitably steps over the line and steps up the removal of our rights and does so with the attendant brutality and violence.

    We own these types of firearms so that we can say, “No, I will not submit”, and then make it much harder for psychotic regimes to just simply walk over us. If the federal Goobers want our firearms, they are going to have to “Come and Take Them”.

    Ownership and possession of tactical firearms is a Human Right. Period. Any attempt to disarm the American Citizens will be met with force. If the Goobers think that they have the right to use force against us, then they had BETTER bring guns, because we certainly will.

    The real reason that governments want to remove firearms from the hands of private Citizens has nothing to do with
    promoting public safety, or “protecting the children”. Those are mere smokescreens for their true agenda, which is to acquire a government-only “Monopoly of Violence”. Without arms in the hands of the Citizenry, then any government can more easily use violence against its own People. A disarmed popluation is an invitation to use violence in furtherance of government agendas.

    It matters not if you believe that our current regime of Marxist Misfits can be trusted not to do that. (They CANNOT, by the way.) Even if the current regime of psychotic children does not eventually begin a campaign of Genocide against our Citizens, sooner or later, some other psychotic winds up in charge, and then decides to start killing his own people in droves, for his own reasons.

    Bashar al-Assad, who has been busily slaughtering his own countrymen by the tens of thousands in Syria, is not an
    aberration, he is not an exception to the above rule. Assad IS the rule.

    Disarming private Citizens is and always has been a step towards Dictatorship and Genocide.

    Those of us who own tactical firearms understand this. That is why we buy these types of firearms in the first place. That is why we usually buy more than one, and make sure that we have at least one stashed, hidden far enough away from home that the Goobers could never find it, but close enough to go and get it when the need arises.

    Many of us are prior military, so we understand the concept of “Defense in Depth”. Most of us have been well-trained in use of tactical firearms. Many of us already have more years of training and experience in Tactical Ground Operations than the jackboot Goobers ever will.

    Some of us were the Instructors who trained those who would later become the Instructors for the Goobers. Many, many of us have already seen combat, so the use of deadly force is not something that we would shrink from in defense of our Human Rights.

    Go ahead, ban our firearms. I guarantee you that you won’t like what happens when you try to Come and Take Them.

      I don’t think we are going to have our weapons taken from us, rather they plan on grandfathering our ownership/possession in and having our heirs turn them in. We will have to raise our children properly so they have the fortitude to fight this fight. TPTB know they do not stand a chance right now, but are counting on the next generation or two to complete their mission.

      I consider it necessary to homeschool. It’s so easy to avoid having to undo the indoctrination and spend that time reinforcing the values we hold near and dear: GOD and COUNTRY/Constitution and the means to keep and preserve both. Plus it allows us more time at the range.

    Bob, you’ve left one factor out of your scenario, which is otherwise quite plausible:

    When the President determines he cannot trust his own military to put down the rebellion, he will call out to the United Nations for support, and the largest military organization in the world, the People’s Army of China, will be happy to “assist” – with certain guarantees of property use/troop stationing upon completion of the mission.

      You know the erosion of our constitution & federal government’s expansive overreach into our lives / infringements on our liberties has taken a long time…Just as our public school system’s shift from being a center of education to one of indoctrination has.
      Google the 45 Communist Goals for America as entered into congressional record in 1963 & you’ll see they’ve accomplished just about all of them & Obama represents their end game. It’s really been a long time coming. They settled in for the long haul to take down America.
      It could also be that he understood it’s the natural cycle of countries to go through this. Governments always become tyrannical when they get too powerful & eventually the people get fed up with serfdom & fight back.
      Our founders understood it well & warned us to not only expect it but to also be ready for it. That’s the very reason for the 2nd amendment after all & why it’s so difficult for our politicians to undermine. They knew the one thing to stand between the people & governmental abuse is a gun.
      Lastly we have the oldest constitution on record. (It’s also the shortest written). The average constitutional republic survives less than 200 years before a tyrant steps in (always during a societies apathy. Think bread & circuses).. So we’ve actually been really blessed to make it as long as we have before things got to this point.

  27. Wendy Lee Vaught says:

    “MR. PRESIDENT: No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do, opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely, and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfil the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offence, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

    Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these war-like preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free² if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending²if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!

    They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable²and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

    It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace²but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”~ Patrick Henry St. John’s Church, Richmond, Virginia March 23, 1775.

  28. Barry Crawford says:

    As a family man with 2 kids about to wrap up college, this is scary stuff. For a time, the rebellion meme seemed to be a romanticized notion by a handful of vocal people.

    Unfortunately, after 23 years in the investment banking industry and countless years of experience in dissecting a problem through logic and substance, I can say that the probability of occurrence has grown to a dangerous level.
    People that I know, normal suburbanites of higher education and well-to-do occupations have begun to arm themselves in preparation for the possibility of just this scenario. I am late to the game as I have been caught in the proverbial optimism bias, hoping that this was all non-sense.
    But it appears that the truth can no longer be avoided. I will be selling my house in Illinois and moving to Texas. It is unfortunate for the people that work for me, but I must protect my family and my liberty.
    To anyone that will listen: I want everyone to know that I have spent a great deal of time studying our founding documents and the concurrent writings. As much as we think that the end would come if our federal government went rogue, it is simply not the final step in the solution set. Our framers were careful to ensure adequate checks and balances and hence a fallback solution in the event our government became tyrannical. That solution is the power of the states.
    While the article paints a picture of cellular and disparate resistance, it fails to mention the next step in our system to combat an unfettered federal government. As the federal government reaches too far into our liberty, the states will inevitably rise in power. People should know that we should always seek refuse in strength of numbers and our existing, remaining government structures. Many of our state governments are fiscally sound and conservative from a constitutional and liberty perspective. Fractured resistance could very well be an exercise in futility and would not necessarily have an adequate effect in fending off an aggressive federal government.
    Please communicate with whoever you can to explain that our state governments are our immediate fall-back position. Working through the proper channels and communicating with your state government officials, representatives, senators, AG’s, and governors, is incredibly important. If we organize our resistance through the proper channels, we are empowered. State governments represent the people of a state and have the standing for us to adequately defend our liberty.
    Our framers were crafty. They gave us a mechanism to deal with this kind of situation. Let’s utilize it. If we leverage the power of our respective states, the states power will rise and balance the equation. Individuals and groups can be marginalized, jailed, castigated and demonized. Organized state governments representing people of that state, declaring certain laws and unconstitutional edicts null and void are harder to deal with and may have the overall effect of balancing the system and thus avoiding conflict while maintaining our liberty.
    Get involved with your state governments. Speak of these issues with a voice of concern. Stay steady and always work to the order of good, liberty and peace.
    There is no romance in conflict. Our only objective should be the maintenance of our liberty and freedom.

        Out-of-Regulation thick back locks of hair. Bells on his combat boots.

        Found dead in the position he was holding, when it was re-taken.

        Surrounded by a score of dead Chicoms. No ammo. M1 rifle butt broken, as he was using it as a club on his attackers.

        As recounted in T.R. Fehrenbach’s classic history piece, This Kind of War: A Study in Unpreparedness.

        Chuck, Mark’s statement implied an actual return to America as she was intended. As for those who don’t like that, they can leave for somewhere that IS as they prefer.

    With an impossible to repay public debt, a bankrupted government, and operating under “emergency rules” since 1933, eventually, the current system will collapse. What I fear is what will arise from the ashes. Based on current levels of indoctrination, “The Powers” are betting on the People’s Democratic Socialist Republic of America, sans that pesky charter of “negative liberties”.

    That Americans only re-discovered their birthright of the republican form, wherein the people are sovereigns, served by government – not ruled.

  34. Howard T. Lewis III says:

    Bob, you are way too melodramatic. The peace will be maintained because the people will not see these armored weapons confiscators as the school bully. These traitors to the people and constitution of the U.S. will be considered zombies without a clue who see43k their own deaths for their own personal reasons. NO ONE has the right to force themselves on other people and that is EXACTLY the agenda of every president since Nixon except for Jimmy Carter. Obama is not the one sole person responsible for this attack by the White House sex offender armies. The TSA has yet to catch a terrorist and they let actual American terrorists and other criminals run free like the AG does. All of them participating in disarming America will be begging for a bullet sandwich to end their private little pain which they do not have the social decency to see a competent therapist for. They have no class. They have no manners. And they have no balls.

  35. Jetgraphics says:

    Bob wrote:”Yet, this is the future we face if the power-mad among us are not soundly defeated at the ballot box before they affect more “change” than we, the People, are willing to surrender to would-be tyrants.”

    [] This is not the remedy, though. Before the rise of the democratic form, in 1820s, and the subsequent power grab by partisan politicians, Americans enjoyed the benefits of the Republican form of government. Though only landed tax payers could vote and hold office, it also meant that revenues were lean, and few were “persons liable” to be governed. The bulk of Americans were sovereign, free and independent. A remnant of that memory is here:
    ……………………………………………..
    ALIEN, n. An American sovereign in his probationary state.
    - – - – “The Devil’s Dictionary” (1906), by Ambrose Bierce
    ……………………………………………..
    His audience knew what an “American sovereign” was, to understand the joke. Today’s socialist audience wouldn’t have a clue. []

  37. Kimberwarrior45 says:

    I think you are overlooking the depravity the government just to keep their power and control. A few “loyal” men could cause horrific death and destruction to this land and the people opposing “their legal and rightous will” with the weapons in the arsenals of the government. They would then blame this horror on the people who are against the government. Most would believe the government as they have been conditioned to do since birth. Have no doubt that those who are in power will use all the tools at thier disposal to keep their position and would not worry about the consequences (deaths and destruction) provided those elite are still in a position of privilage.

    oh this is silly. let me tell you what will happen.

    one day you will find your bank account and credit card accounts frozen. you will not be able to pay your mortgage, or pay your bills, or be able to purchase food or gasoline. you will receive a form letter from some level of government explaining that according to their records you may illegally possess an illegal firearm, that your accounts have been frozen until this matter is resolved, and that if you turn in the offending item to your local sheriff or post office your case will be reviewed and then all your accounts will be restored.

  40. marie rich says:

    If this scenario plays out, I would add that at some point states/regions will repudiate the FedGov. At that point, the President will call on the U.N. to send ‘peacekeeping troops’ to ‘restore order’. The big nations who send blue hats will commence jockeying for area and resources, and the FedGov will effectively loose control of them. At that point, the USA will be (overtly or de facto) occupied.

  41. marie rich says:

    I’d guess most of the military and police who decamp would head home to protect their families and homes. Maybe if they can secure their loved one’s safety they will then join in resistance.

  42. marie rich says:

    One hopes it never comes to this, but…Sedition is trying to overthrow *by force* the authority of the government. And the authority of our government (according to the Constitution) can only be GRANTED by the governed. In fact, the right to open rebellion against the U.S. government was fully recognized by the Founding Fathers. I fear we are increasingly trodding the path to a totalitarian state. A very dangerous path, indeed, for unless you are one of the rulers of the ignorant plebes, you are just as vulnerable to the iron fist.

    Look at the name of our country- the United States of America. It shows the voluntary nature of the association. We are not called the Federal Units of America.

      They should be offered to the engine compartments. But be aware that the M1 Abrams has halon fire suppression systems in theirs. So you’ll likely need to serve them two or three times.

      And don’t forget to play blind-mans-bluff with them using paint balloons to the view ports.

    you have nothing to fear, but fear it’s self. When they come for your rights, then you have no other option then fight.
    Stand true and be brave, for if you fail, you fail us all.
    For it is man, not a tyrant that controls his future. For the tyrant most fall or we all loose. Once you have placed the blade into the belly of the beast, then and only then shall you be free. For if the tyrant wins, then you will be in chains and you shall never be free men. For it is we the people that must take the charge and we can not fail. Failure is not an option. As one great American said “From my cold dead hands”. Then and only then will they understand what freedom means to us.

  47. Benson II says:

    It had to be said but it’s still speaking to the choir. The first order of business is finding a way to make the media truthful. If they were truthful in any way there would be no Obama presidency. Socialist would not have taken over academia and Hollywood would be bust. Their would be few if any liberal unconstitutional judges on the bench. Psychiatry and drug companies would not be lobotomizing our citizens with mind altering drugs and Christians wouldn’t be under attack from the ACLU. Without a brainwashed populace America could turn it’s attention to our foreign enemies instead of fighting those within. The main stream media is our number one enemy even ahead of Obama because without them he could do nothing.

      Case in Point: Parallels in History

      It was forty years between the murder of the most innocent Man to walk the Earth and the total destruction of Israel.

      This year marks the fortieth year since we began the mass murder of the most innocent amongst US.

      Ever read the accounts of the Wars of the Jews by Flavius Josephus? It’s rather interesting how he reports that civil war amongst the Jews was killing more of them than the invading Romans.

      I do believe that we are in for a chastisement for our mass murder and part of it could well be civil war amongst ourselves.

      I don’t think it will be the total destruction of America. But if it happens it will be very messy. And there may be an attack from outside the US to be part of it.

      I expect that Iran and North Korea are working diligently towards conducting an EMP attack on US in the near future. In fact, last year this month, the Iranians successfully launched a satellite that has the profile of such an attack vehicle. A couple of days later, one of the Ayatollahs declared that the US would soon be destroyed. They may not have a bomb, but they certainly have the delivery mechanism.
