|"Let's drop our rifles here, go back home, and write a nice letter politely |
asking the British military governor of Massachusetts to pretty please
stop treating us like serfs." - said not one single swinging Richard
one cold April morning.
This comment on yesterday's post, and my reply, are too germane and vital to relegate to ten grafs below the comment bar.
"My two cents:
1 Don't shoot or in any way attack LEO or National guard troops; it is a sure fire way to turn people away from your cause. Refuse to obey unconstitutional laws but don't refuse to obey the police, your fight is in court not with the police.
2. If you did choose to take someone's life, a politician or other anti-American activist, which I would advise against, do not use a gun. The opposition would use the fact that you used a gun against you. Don't forget they are painting you as rabid killers who are armed.
3, The fight is political, form groups to bring your cause to the public and fight this at the ballot box. Win the hearts and minds of your fellow citizens.
4. Tell your people, your followers and supporters that you are a law abiding supporter of the constitution and anyone who breaks the law does not represent you and your beliefs.
You clearly haven't put two seconds' considered thought into this.
I have one deadly serious question for you:
At what point do you draw the line, and stop cucking?
The Colonial Militia opened fire in 1775 when TPTB came for their guns, and their leaders.
Maybe I'm sentimental about the principal, but that sounds like a pretty good historical precedent to me.
You want to try fighting that battle after you're disarmed, before the same courts that refused to throw such prima facie unconstitutional laws out, for decades, and you may as well just drive yourself down to the railroad yard and self-load onto a boxcar now.
If not your guns, then over what?
If not right then, when?
If you won't fight when you're armed, how will you do it when you're disarmed?
"THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman." - Thomas Paine
“If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” - Sam AdamsIt's as if you couldn't wait to run out and say "Any suggestion that someone might actually stand up for their rights in any meaningful way was unintentional" and "Hey, we don't want to, you know, piss off TPTB or make things hard for their dutiful minions, right?"
In short, I cannot see any point of agreement with one word you wrote.
You're twenty years and more behind the times.
For you, the catch-up is going to be a cast-iron bitch.
In the meantime, when the penny drops, and you realize the people "who break the law and do not represent you" are the very government and its organs you won't lift a finger to oppose, will your head explode? Or will you just sit there in stunned shock while smoke exits your ears?
Or in your theory of government, do unjust laws enforced by unjust thugs for unjust ends nonetheless constitute a binding power over you until serendipity and happy accident grant you a magical do-over, and restore your surrendered weapon(s) to you?
8,518,000 Virginians were kind of wondering, just for openers.
And, based on the tenor of the original commentor, Anonymous responds:
My two cents:No. You don't want to win. You want to virtue-signal, but without putting anything at risk, least of all the hide so precious to no one but you.
I think the difference between your position and mine is I want to win and you want to posture.
"Do not fight the LEOs and national guard" What could [possibly be wrong with that idea??? If the politicians are the ones you want to take out then take them out. A guillotine perhaps or draw and quarter them. I don't recommend that kind of violence but if you must, then direct it at the actual enemy of our constitutional republic and not on the working class.
"The fight is political" It absolutely is. Serious violence will only work against you in the political fight making you look like Dylan Roof.
"Tell your people, your followers and supporters that you are a law abiding supporter of the constitution". Absolutely!!! Make no mistake, over zealous supporters or carpet baggers planted into your movement by the opposition will doom your agenda.
Your choice is simple: To work hard and be effective in getting back our 2nd amendment gun rights or be loud mouthed posers intent on out macho-ing the other loud mouth posers and in the process doom your movement.
You won't win by supplicating from a position of servitude.
You have nothing - NOTHING - you'd fight for.
War is the continuation of politics, by other means.
Politics without war is the United Nations. Name for the class all the victories they've won.
Show your work.
Abide by the constitution all you want.
So tell us, smart guy, when you have your Constitution, but the other side ignores it, and won't play by those rules, what you'll win...?
Here's a hint or two:
