Our Representatives Consider Us to Be Collateral Damage

Our forefathers fought a Revolution for taxable without representation. They stood up and asserted their rights under God:

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 of 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 shewn, 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.

Today we cower in fear hoping for someone else to save us. As the House vote above shows, no one is coming to save us from those who only “represent” their own interests. I had hoped for a peaceful solution. I had hoped that a French style revolution would be avoided. I had hoped for many things but I never considered that our “leaders” want us to rise up so that we will be crushed. There is evil all around us but it should never be considered to be omnipotent.

David are you cowering? How about you Wes?
How about the rest of those who frequent NC Renegade, Are you cowering in fear? Or are you going about your daily business and prepping , preparing (just in case. Trigger event etc.)
David- “I had hoped for many things but I never considered that our “leaders” want us to rise up so that we will be crushed.” a follower -- This is where i have been living for some time. It seems apparent, the lies are so blatant, the hypocrisy the double mindedness.

No -- the only thing I fear is God and not living a good life -- all lies come from the Satan -- they start their -- the patriots faced the same problem in 1776 -- but the people weren’t living next door and our forefathers were a heck of allot braver than we are today

There are things worth dying for. This is one of them. it doesn’t matter, individually, if we win or lose. What does matter is that we find the worth and fight regardless of the personal consequences.

The founding Fathers were up against a world class tyrant, heavily out manned and out gunned. They were men of God not sissified whiny boys. The current lines in the sand are ad-infinitum go on forever.

This bullshit Verdict means this: We, the jury, value our freedom less lives more than we value this Man’s Constitutional Guarantees.

I am surprised that anyone still expects anything besides disappointment from all these people, bottom to top! They are all on same team now, very evil and I pray enough good people realize this before too late…almost there it seems!
The things that go through my head lately, strategically, I never thought I’d have to dwell on or even contemplate.
We are at that cross road folks! The trails ahead are blurred…lets Clear the fog and keep that simple quote in mind… “Good men to do nothing!”
IN LIKE FLYNN!

Can we just walk away from these people? Cut off all financial and legal ties? No. Then there is not much of a choice. We are collateral damage or they are collateral damage. Either way this situation is not going to go away until we get it over with.

I think for us patriots, God put us here for a reason for the right time and purpose. I often wonder why I survived Vietnam. By rights, my name should have been etched on that wall. God has a plan for us.
