The American Revolution And Today, Whats Brewing?

January 7, 2009

In times of change, the Patriot is a scarce man; brave, hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot. -Mark Twain

The American Revolution was more than the colonies breaking free from British rule, it was an intellectual and social middle finger to them, and to oppressive governments around the world. In America no more did ancestry determine your life value, everybody started from scratch, and your merit and skill got you more prosperity, this was in essence the core of the “American Dream”. Those in America during the Revolution were treated as second class citizens to Britain, and hated it. The intellectualism in America during that time was enormous, ideas of self-ownership, naturul rights, and equality was like nothing any society has ever seen in all of history.

So what does this have to do with today? Well, I see the same ingredients being mixed again. I see class warfare, I see mass dissatisfaction of government, I see corruption, oppression, tyranny, and down right the same liberties being lost that we fought for over 200 hundred years ago.  In the midst of all of this people should remember that the American Revolution did not end in 1783, the fighting ended but the intellectual ideas that was at the root of the revolution continued.  It should have continued through all of American History, and to today.

Somewhere over the years this sentiment had been lost, but today I think we are  re-discovering our past, the American people are going through their own “renaissance” . We have slowly let tyranny come back since our revolution, inch by inch, it has grown, and leaps and bounds over the past 100 years. I am not sure what lies in store for us, violent, non-violent change, intellectual, or social change, whatever it may be I do feel like we are on the brink of something.

We must rediscover our roots. We must learn of liberty, of self governance, of individualism, of our god-given rights, and that big government only works to ensure it’s own safety not the peoples, and at the same time they viciously take  our liberties. In the words of the great Thomas Jefferson, “The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere.”

    Government laziness has hit an all time high, they don’t even bother to cover their tracks anymore. With Obama taking the throne and dishing out more of the same, the only thing that is “cahnge we can believe in” is his underwear. Rahm Emmanuel proclaims that dissenters have no 2nd amendment rights. More and more people are waking up to the Zio controlled federal government’s encrochment on our rights, given to us by the creator, not by Washington, thus they have NO right to deny us those rights. The time of pich-forks, torches and shot gun blasts draws near my countrymen. Prepare yourselves. A long, cold abyss stands before us. -”Give me liberty or give me death”.
